Washing your hair is an automatic almost every-day activity, and we usually don’t invest any mental effort in doing it.
We have listed some tips for you for washing your hair properly.
First of all, it’s recommended to wash your hair in lukewarm water. Washing it in hot water opens the pores in your head and, among other things, makes your scalp soft, which may cause hair loss when toweling your hair and then combing it after washing it.
It’s always preferable to apply conditioner to the tips of the hair and the little that remains on our hands to apply to the scalp gently with the pads of our fingers.
After washing, make sure to rinse off all the shampoo from the scalp thoroughly; shampoo left on the scalp may cause hair to lose its shine and to look thinner.
Try to avoid using body soap or shower gel to wash your hair. The pH level of body soap and shampoo is completely different; therefore, among other things, using body soap may cause dryness of the scalp as well as dandruff.
The question whether it is allowed/correct for us to wash our hair every day is always asked.
According to hair experts throughout the world, there is no reason not to wash your hair daily just as there is no reason to not wash it every day.
One smart thing to do is to take a “hair washing break” every few months, to give your hair a rest for a week to allow it to regenerate and, during that same week, wash your hair with lukewarm water.
A “hair washing break” allows the hair to remain clean but, at the same time, to rid itself of all the chemicals built up on it.
