“How to use your Shampoo”
First, thoroughly saturate scalp and hair with water. Apply a small amount of shampoo (about the size of a pea) to palm and rub hands together to evenly distribute and activate enzymes. Now apply shampoo to scalp and with the balls of your fingers scrub your scalp thoroughly. The primary objective of shampooing is to clean your scalp, not wrestle your hair, so concentrate on massaging gently and allow suds to be distributed throughout hair while rinsing. Rinse your hair well then repeat again. It is very important to completely rinse all shampoo out of hair before applying conditioner.
“The right way to condition”
After rinsing shampoo, apply some conditioner in one hand and rub palms together to evenly distribute and activate enzymes. Apply conditioner from the middle of the hair shaft down to ends; do not massage conditioner onto scalp unless scalp is dry. Comb through hair to distribute product evenly. Leave conditioner on hair long to help smooth the cuticle—it only takes a few seconds. Rinse thoroughly - It’s important to rinse shampoo and conditioner from your scalp. Stand under the shower and gently lift hair to permit the water to reach the scalp. Hair will be thoroughly rinsed when it feels consistently clean as you run your fingers from scalp to ends. Always use a conditioner or leave in treatment to close the cuticle never only shampoo and leave hair to dry.
"To wash or not to wash?"
Shampooing frequency for normal hair depends on whether hair is curly or straight. Shampoo and condition straight hair every day for a sleek radiant look. Curly hair, however, becomes too fluffy if it’s washed too often, so it’s okay to shampoo and condition every other day.
"Should you occasionally switch shampoos?"
Goods Salon shampoos do not build up on hair; they continue to work effectively as long as you use them, so there’s no need to switch products. Choosing the right products for your hair - Fine or thin hair can sometimes be more delicate and could benefit from a protein enriched shampoo and conditioner formula with a light level of conditioner. Curly hair may look dry, and therefore can benefit from a regimen which includes moisturizing ingredients.

Drink: Clear is the key!

Eat: Be careful what you eat.
PMS cravings for sugar (chocolate) and salt are very common during this time of the month.
However, sugar adds weight and salty foods can cause water retention.
Find some healthy snacks at the health food store, some veggies, or stock up on ginger cookies (great for cramps!).
Exercise: Everything hurts during PMS, but a little light exercise (walking for example) will help with the tightening feelings from the cramps.
Plus, the air and interaction will help you with mental symptoms such as mood swings, depression, and anxiety.
Pain: When you first start to feel moody or cramp, don’t wait.
Take a pain reliever or homeopathic remedies now.

Planning: Planning is two fold. Learn to keep a discrete supply of feminine hygiene products and pain relievers around you.
Make a habit of checking to see after each period if you need supplies for next month.
This will give you plenty of time to purchase the products you need.
Information: Get involved read materials about PMS. Most women stop trying to learn about new methods of dealing PMS because they believe it just has to be a drama every month.
It does not...and control of the effects of PMS is in your hands.
