We all want to have healthy and shiny hair and we do everything we can to make it happen. Let's see how to wash your hair well!
If you want good hair health, the most important thing is washing. It's a task that we always do and yet many of us do it wrong. By learning how to properly wash your hair we avoid having dandruff, irritation, and dirt. Follow these steps to do it the right way.
1. Avoid washing your hair every day
If you want to achieve proper hair health, you should wash less frequently. The oil that forms in your hair is very healthy, so washing your hair between 3 and 4 times a week will be ok!
2. Always warm water, never hot water
If you are going to wash your hair, keep in mind that the temperature influences the quality of the wash. Avoid hot water on your hair because it damages the scalp, roots, and the rest of the hair. Use warm water to rinse the shampoo and cold water for the conditioner. The cold water will help to close the previously open pores and the hair will remain frizz-free.
3. Hair must be completely wet
Wet the hair very well, so you will need less shampoo but obtain better results. Use the shampoo that matches the type of hair and scalp you have. Also, dilute it before using so as not to put so much chemical directly on your hair.
4. Gently massage your scalp
Massage the scalp in gentle circular motions with your fingertips. Do not use nails or apply force. Apply gentle but steady pressure from scalp and roots to ends for at least 3-5 minutes. This allows you to eliminate product residues and the absorption of nutrients from your conditioner.
5. Conditioner is never applied to the roots
Never apply the conditioner on the scalp, just the ends, let it act for a few minutes, massaging and squeezing the hair so that it takes in its nutrients. Then rinse it well so that no product remains.
6. Protect your hair from heat
You should try to allow your hair to dry naturally as much as possible, but if you need to use a hairdryer or styling tools, make sure you apply a heat protecting product.
