I’ve Been Washing My Hair Wrong My Entire Life, And This Is How You Should Actually Do It
Ladies, in this article we’re going to show you 11 useful tips (mistakes you’re doing when you wash your hair) that will help you wash your hair – the right way.
- You wait as long as you can between washes
This means that you should wash your hair whenever it feels like washing. YES! And ladies, you can do it once in a week (during winters) and every day (during summer time). It’s all up to you.
- You shampoo every wash
IF you shower every day, you shouldn’t use shampoo all the time, because it would result into a dry scalp.
- You scrub your scalp
Don’t scrub your scrub! You should gently work your fingers through the hair. This will prevent the breakage and damage.
- Hot showers
We all love hot shower! Yes, they’re awesome, but not for your hair. How this works – well, the hotness will dry out your skin and scalp. You should rinse your hair with lukewarm or cold water.
- You use too many shampoos
Don’t experiment! Yes, you should stick to only one shampoo. It is easier on your hair.
- Pouring on the shampoo
Too much shampoo will rinse out all the other products. Note: a coin size would be enough.
- You towel dry your hair
Did you know that your hair is fragile when it is wet? The answer is YES, and instead of rubbing it with a towel, pat your hair dry (very gently).
- Brushing your hair
REMEMBER – you shouldn’t brush your hair when it is wet.
- You always shampoo your scalp
Don’t shampoo your scalp down all the time.
- You don’t soak your hair
This is very important for you to remember – you have to be sure that your hair is completely soaked, before applying shampoo.
- Shampooing your whole head
You should shampoo your roots and condition your ends.
