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.

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.

  1. 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.
