I know it sounds next to crazy to tell someone how to wash their hair. It is equivalent to telling someone, how to drink water? How to eat food? How to blink the eye? Well, it may sound bizarre but trust me it is not and that’s what makes to let the knowledge out to you. Normally, you might know some of these tips already and you might be using them in your life already but some people might not know and we do not want to miss a chance of letting anyone out. We all have to be on the same page to move forward together, as a family.
Alright so let’s get into the shower now!
First, rinse your hair. So unique right? Jokes apart, rinse your hair to make it wet with water between 35-40 Centigrade. Specifically water because it opens up pores so that the dust that gets stuck all day gets eliminated before we start using shampoos or conditioners. Once your hair is properly rinsed its time to reach out to that bottle of shampoo.
Taking out fairly small amounts of shampoo as we think we need for a shampoo which is usually not true. So gently massage it to the scalp, you know what? We only need to lather up the hair on the scalp and the rest can be fairly easily massaged. The perfect method of massaging would be from roots to the end. As the hair at your roots is fairly new, it has to be the oiliest so starting there would be the most effective. Make your way till the end and that’s all you gotta do with massaging.
Keeping in mind, massaging with fingertips is a big NO NO. Always and always use either finger pads or palm to massage on your scalp as it is softer and does not harm hair follicles and pores. Gentle pressure is all you need to regulate and improve blood circulation in the scalp.
Wash it thoroughly with lukewarm water, avoid using very hot water although it feels very tempting in cold weather. It actually negatively affects scalp if used for longer periods of time. It takes away all the required minerals and oils which are essential for our scalp and hair.
Lastly, condition your hair with a natural conditioner to sooth the strands. For instance, you may apply conditioner from mid-length to the ends and not on the scalp. Strands need more nourishment than the hair on the scalp as it has access to natural oils.
This is how we recommend washing your hair in order to avoid any problems and regulate your hair and scalp to the best quality.
