Almost every one of us believe that we are washing our hair the right way. But there is a possibility that we could be wrong. But how can you possibly do it wrong even after washing your hair all through your life? We may not be knowing our folly and could be damaging our hair by washing our hair the wrong way. This may not be done intentionally.
Whatever kind of hair you may have, be it oily or be it dry or be it thick or be it strong, each of your individual hair is very fragile. That is the reason why it breaks in case you pull or tug your hair. No one likes to see their hair falling off!!
Now, which one is the best method for washing your hair?
Untie all the tangles on your hair with the help of a comb before you even make your hair wet. This will help the hair from tangling even more while washing, and makes the hair washing process a lot easier. Next step involves getting in to the shower and standing under the shower and making your hair wet. Either warm or cold water is okay as per your personal preference. But the best results will be provided if you use warm water to wet you hair initially and to open your cuticles, and to rinse off all the oil and dirt on it. Then you can finish it off by rinsing your hair in cold water and thus close the cuticles and add shine to your hair.
Wet your hair under the shower and with the use of your fingers try to remove all the left over hair styling products and conditioners on your hair. Get a little bit of shampoo in your hand and apply it on to your scalp after rubbing your hands together. Make sure you apply the shampoo on to the scalp of your head and not on the tips of your hair. If you apply the shampoo on to the end region of your hair, that would make your hair too dry, weak and may cause them to split. Avoid mixing all your hair and causing them to tangle while applying shampoo. Then you need to rinse all the shampoo away.
It would be better if you use the shampoo a second time as well. This time the shampoo will take care of your hair after the initial application removed all the dirt and oil of your hair. Leave the shampoo on your hair for at least two minutes when you do the second shampooing. Get rid off all the shampoo by rinsing thoroughly after wards.
Try to gently squeeze the extra water out of your hair. It is not advisable to pull or tug at your hair when it is wet, as it is really weak then. Once you get rid of the extra water from your hair, use a dollop conditioner along your hair line, the ends and the nape of your hair. Put a shower cap on your hair and let the conditioner seep in to your hair for around ten minutes and then rinse the hair thoroughly.
It is not a very quick or easy process. But then nothing great can be achieved without any effort. Once you have your gorgeous hair shining brightly, you will earn the worth of all these hard work.
