If you’ve ever wanted to know how to properly wash your hair, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s explore the basics of how to properly wash your hair.
Step 1: Make sure your hair is completely wet before starting. Using your fingertips and circular motions, pre-scrub and massage your scalp. This will ensure that all of the dirt and product buildup is loosened before shampooing.
Step 2: When shampooing, be sure that you use only about a quarter-sized amount of shampoo depending on your hair density. It’s important not to overdo it here as you could just be wasting product. Start at the roots and massage the scalp for at least a minute before letting the shampoo rinse through your ends. You should only need to really scrub down your ends once per week; although if you use lots of styling products, then consider using a clarifying one up to twice per month. Sometimes shampooing twice is required for very oily scalps or increased product build-up.
Step 3: Conditioner should be concentrated mostly on mid-lengths and ends of hair, leaving out the roots unless your scalp feel dry. Let conditioner sit for at least two minutes before rinsing out completely with cool water – this helps seal in moisture from the conditioner!
Bonus tip - Use an old t-shirt or special wrap towel for drying off excess water after washing and wrap up your hair in it – rather than rubbing it with a towel that can cause damage!
