The Do's & Don't's Of Washing Your Hair

A minor error can easily damaged your hair

People think that hair wash is a simple task but it actually the key to healthy and smooth hair. A minor error can easily damaged the roots, let's look at the Do’s and Don’t's for hair wash.

Wet hair thoroughly 

Don't: Pour Shampoo Directly On Scalp

Do not pour your shampoo and conditioner directly onto your hair, it will easily clog pores too. Wet your hair thoroughly before washing and use the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair texture.  

While washing, don't pile your hair on top and scrub it, it will only create knots. You are advised to focus the shampoo on the roots to cleanse and the conditioner on the shaft and ends to help maintain moisture and give that shiny look. 

Do: Pour the shampoo onto your palm, rub your hands together and then gently rub your palms over your hair. Rinse until the water runs clear to prevent dull hair cause by insufficient rinsing of shampoo.

Scalp massage can be done effectively with your fingertips

Don't: Wash Hair With Finger Nails

Most people tend to use their finger nails when shampooing hair, but they do not know that the way they "massage" is actually scratching their scalp

Regarding to "Medical New Today", 90 minutes of continuous scratching by fingernails can remove all the cuticle scale. This loss leaves the hair shaft weakened and permanently damaged, making it easily susceptible to breakage and hair loos. 

Do:  Handle your hair gently and massage your scalp with fingertips. 

Hot and cold water for washing your hair?

Don't: Use Wrong Temperature

Hot water seems to be a double-edged sword. It open up the pores to increase our hair to absorb nutrition from hair care products, but instead, hot water strip the hair of natural oils, moisture escapes the hair shaft and results in frizz. 

Rinse your hair with hot water too often can leave the hair overly porous, causing it to be dry and brittle or even worse, dandruff as  

Do:  Finish with a cool rinse helps to close cuticles and sealing the shingle-like outer layer.
