You might be washing your hair wrong. Here’s how to take care good of your hair
1. Washing daily?
The first piece of advice we can find when looking for hair care tips is not to wash it daily. This is because nowadays many people wash their hair every day or more than once a day. However, this routine is counterproductive. Excessive washing makes your scalp produce more oil, while it's desperately trying to replenish the moisture you've just removed with harsh shampoo chemicals and hard water.
2. Massage the scalp
Massaging the scalp doesn't only feel great, it's an excellent way to stimulate hair growth, but avoid using your nails. Instead, you can gently massage with your fingertips, a soft hairbrush or specific massage tools.
You can take advantage of massaging twice in one wash too. You can contribute to better cleaning of your hair if you have two rounds of shampoo. You can wash your hair twice, making sure you break down the residue and product build-up, and also massage the scalp. Avoid using too much shampoo on the tips. You are technically only washing the scalp.
3. Choose your shampoo carefully
It is essential to choose a shampoo that goes with your hair type. This way you will be taking advantage of all the properties it provides and not applying chemicals your hair might not use.
4. Condition the right way
If you've ever read the instructions on a conditioner, you know it says you have to leave it on for 5 minutes at least. There's a reason for that. And yet, be honest with yourself, do you actually wait that long? Or do you wash the conditioner off as soon as you possibly can? Giving the products time to act is the best thing you can do. Otherwise, you're essentially sending your hard-earned money down the drain.
5. Rinse...with cold water
The last rinse should be done with cool water. This will give your hair the shine it may be lacking. Cool water will help seal the ends, preventing dryness throughout the day.
6. Dry with a hair towel
No, a regular towel won't do. Invest in a hair towel, one specifically designed to dry the hair without pulling, tugging, or damaging it in any way. They are totally worth it.
As you can see, you don't need to spend a fortune of money to care for your hair. Just follow these tips and you can easily improve the health and texture of your hair.
