Right Way to Wash Your Tresses
Hair is your crown, which you will never take off…!!! The least maintenance we can do is washing them regularly and keeping it clean right.??? Today, I will be sharing tips to wash your hair in right way. Shall we get started???
Rinse your hair:
First thing first, always rinse your hair thoroughly with warm water before applying shampoo.
Less is more:
Take little amount of shampoo on your palm. Add some water to make it dilute. Apply this to your scalp and massage gently with your fingers. Lather well and with lather, massage the end of your hair. Hairs’ root is the new hair and need more cleansing as compared to the root tip. Root tip is the older but fragile hair. Massage more on the scalp than the hair ends.
Avoid repeat shampooing:
It is recommended to use shampoo only once. We tend to wash hair using shampoo twice or thrice. But hair experts suggest using shampoo only once. One time is enough to clean the scalp. If you have applied oil before washing, then yes you might need to use more shampoo and wash it twice to get rid of oiliness.
Always be gentle:
No matter how busy you are, how much you are running out of time, always take time and wash your hair gently. The more gentle you are to your hair, the lesser the friction. Lesser the friction, lesser damage to hair.
Conditioner is must:
Shampoos are full of chemicals. They tend to absorb moisture from hair. It is recommended to use conditioner after you wash your hair. Wipe your hair with towel before applying conditioner to make most of it. The older hair requires more care. It is advisable to apply conditioner below the shoulder level. Do not apply conditioner on your scalp.
If you have long hair, you can use conditioner before shampoo:
If you have long and dry hair, you can reverse the procedure to keep the moist in your hair. Conditioner conditions and adds moisture to hair. Shampooing later to that, doesn’t make your hair dry.
End with cold water rinse:
Hot water opens the pores and cold water closes them. It is recommended to rinse your hair with cold water at the end of washing, to close the opened pores and add shine to hair.
Some More Tips:
Do not use hot water shower:
Heat causes more damage to hair. It dries out hair thus making it brittle and more split ends. In order to keep your hair healthy, its better you use warm water instead of hot one.
Use shampoo and conditioner which are made for your hair type:
There are plenty of shampoos and conditioner in the market. Depending on your hair concern and type, choose a product. For eg. If your concern is dry hair, moisturizing shampoo and conditioner are best for you. If your hair is thin and scalp is oily, you avoid moisturizing shampoo. Instead you can opt for volumising shampoo and conditioners.
Once in a week apply a moisturizing hair mask. Our hair needs that extra care. Pampering your self with a good hair mask, once in a while will do more good to you. You should use mask after cleaning hair. You can skip conditioner if you are using a mask.
I personally like applying hair serum when your hair is wet. Reason being, it helps in more absorption. You will love the softness due to serum applied, when the hair dries.
I hope you found this quick post useful.
Take care of your crown Princess…!!!
