Tips to Get Rid of Hair Product Buildup

If you comb or brush hair and get flaky powder along the hair shaft, this is not dandruff and more likely it is a buildup problem that causes your hair to look and feel dull and lifeless.

Probably you use too much products on your hair, since these products build up over time. Styling hair by using mousses, gels, hairsprays, non-water soluble waxes, 2 in 1 shampoos, or
applying gel in a blob may cause that buildup. They should form a sheath around your hair shaft to style it, with time they form a layer that gives your hair that appearance.

Tips to defeat Hair Product Buildup

- Apply the spray further away from the hair about 15 cm ( 6 inches)
