I’ve Been Washing My Hair Wrong My Entire Life, And This Is How You Should Actually Do It
Hair is fickle. It can be beautiful at one time and messy the other. When you move your fingers through your hair, you want it to be a soft and soothing. But, when you have dandruff or dry hair, it can be very irritating.
You may then take a shower with some shampoo and your hair might be back to normal, soft and gorgeous as before. In any case, that is just temporary. Doing it the right way matters and it keeps your hair healthy and the beautiful look long lasting.
Mistake#1 You wait as long as you can between washes
You should wash your hair whenever it feels like washing. You can do it once in a week during winters and every day during summers. It is up to you.
Mistake#2 You shampoo every wash
In a case that you shower every day, you should try skipping the shampoo every once in a while otherwise it would result into a dry scalp.
Mistake#3 You scrub your scalp
Instead of scrubbing, you should gently work your fingers through the hair. This will prevent the breakage and damage.
Mistake#4 hot showers
Hot showers are fantastic, but not for your hair, because the hotness dries out your skin and scalp. You should rinse your hair with the lukewarm or cold water.
Mistake#5 You use too many shampoos
Maybe you love to experiment but, you should try sticking to only one shampoo. It is easier on your hair.
Mistake#6 Pouring on the shampoo
Pouring too much shampoo will rinse out all the products. So utilize only the required quantity, a coin size would be enough.
Mistake#7 You towel dry your hair
Your hair is fragile when it is wet, so instead of rubbing it with a towel, pat your hair dry gently.
Mistake#8 Brushing your hair
Shampoo gently and do not brush your hair when it is wet as this may bring about breakage.
Mistake#9 You always shampoo your scalp
You should not shampoo your scalp down always. Begin with the nape of your neck every once in a while.
Mistake#10 You don’t soak your hair
You have to be sure that your hair is completely soaked, before applying shampoo.
Mistake#11 Shampooing your whole head
You should shampoo your roots and condition your ends.
