When taking first time clients in my studio, the most common concern is a shampoo that's not working well enough to cleanse there hair. But it's usually not the shampoo, it the way the client uses the shampoo. I'll go through a few  easy steps on shampooing your scalp and hair.  Why Aesop gentle shampoo? A couple of things- the owner is Greek Australian like myself, he was a hairstylist and I love his attention to detail.  As former client of mine we shared many things in common, and especially loving everything white and gentle scalp cleanser being our favorite shampoo filled with botanicals, aromas, and essential oils delighting the most demanding curator of perfume's.
Step one:  use no more than a quarter size, pour shampoo into your palm making sure to work it in your hands before you apply it on your scalp. The amount used is never determined by the length of your hair.
Step two:  use a circular motion through out the scalp working the temples crown and the nape. Rinse thoroughly and repeat if your washing your hair every other day
Follow with your favorite conditioner- I would use twice the amount of the shampoo. Distribute evenly into your palms then work it into mid shaft of your hair.  Avoid the roots.  Using a very wide tooth comb, gently work the conditioner through top and the ends.  Leave in hair whilst you finish your shower, then rinse your conditioner out- 
Very simple and the result is a pure, clean, shiny, aroma filled scalp and hair!

Lazarus Douvos gives my hair a last spray, and the noxious stuff catches in my scrupulously protected throat; now I may genuinely faint. But suddenly I am at the top of the stairs that lead to the stage, and as the curtain is drawn back, I stride forward to the roar of 4,000 people and Paula Abdul in a hot-pink frock.

Always wanted beachy hair without the use of too much product? let me take you through step by step to achieve a great result!
Best done on a day or two unwashed blown out hair
take wide sections (around an inch or two) starting from top wrap hair around two fingers in a twisting wrist motion. Leave the ends out, release fingers, place wrapped hair on scalp and secure with pincurl clips- you can do the entire head or desired sections around the face or crown.
Leave to set while your applying lipstick or spraying your favorite perfume.
Remove clips after 10 min, or for all day extra strength results leave for 30 min..
Finish of by running fingers through hair, a bit of spray and voila your a beachy princess!!
