Carry on reading to discover what new things you were missing all these while, whenever you went to wash your hair:
#1 – You Do Not Have To Wash Your Hair Daily
This is done by many because they feel that their tresses become dirty often and a good hair wash is all they need to freshen up. Well, if you are one of them, then there must be something wrong with your shampoo, or else you wouldn’t feel your hair is dirty every day.
#2- Stick To The Scalp Of Your Hair
You need to ensure that your hair root is clean. That is why, gently massage the shampoo on your scalp only. Do not think of scrubbing it with your finger nails. Massage your scalp and work your way gently down the rest of the strand. Do not pile up your hair on top of your head and then scrub. That will only create knot instead. You would find a different hair wash pattern followed by beauticians, if you ever walk into a beauty parlor for a hair wash.
#3- Your Hair Is Weak And Vulnerable When Wet
So, try to be gentle with it. When you wash you hair, try lathering up the shampoo with your palm and then apply it on the scalp of your head. The palm of your hands get lubricated when you lather up the shampoo in your hand. This reduces the damage of wear and tear that can come when washing. It is generally advised not to use comb on a wet hair. But if you have got to, then comb with wide teeth.
#4- Rinse Your Hair With Cool Water
Never wash your hair with hot water. That damages your hair. So, use cool water instead since that will tighten you hair cuticles and give it an added shine.
#5- Apply Conditioner Only On The Shaft Of Your Hair
There is no need to apply it to the roots. You need to condition your hair strands. Once you have applied, leave it there for 4 to 5 minutes at least. You can in the mean time shave your legs or wash your face while you wait.
