Hairdos for long curly hair

Mr. Michaels’ recommended massage is done in the shampoo shower and consists of a gentle back-to-front motion, all done with the head hanging down. The reason for the shower massage? Mr. Michaels doesn’t believe in massaging dirt into the hair. Sound hair-thinking, I’d say.

And then, of course, there’s massage with a hairbrush. Mr. Michaels thinks it ought to be done first thing in the morning even before you put the coffee on to brew.

If you start from the top, you’ll have a whole length of hair to untangle and it will be a lot harder on your head and your hair. Remember: bit by bit, from the bottom upward.
