Stop Washing Your Hair In The Wrong Way, Here’s How You Should Do It
You may wash your hair every day and think you’re doing it right, but you’re not – your hair’s vitality, shine and bounce depend on the correct washing technique! Improper hair washing methods may damage your hair and bring unwanted problems.
Luckily for you, this article will show you a correct hair washing technique provided by New York-based hair experts.

Rinsing your hair first
Before applying your favorite shampoo, you should wet your hair thoroughly. Your hair needs dampening just like laundry does before being washed with detergent. Hot water will open the cuticles, allowing the shampoo to clean your hair properly. Furthermore, rinsing will loosen the natural oils of your scalp and the loose pores will allow easier absorption of the oils in your conditioner.

Use a conditioner before a shampoo for long hair
In order to increase your hair length, apply a conditioner on your hair before washing it with shampoo. This will strengthen your weakened hair ends and protect them from further damage, making your hair look shiny and smooth.

Lather up at the scalp only
You should shampoo your hair only at the scalp because the youngest part of your hair is in that area, which is also the oiliest. The ends are the most fragile and oldest part of your hair.

When washing your hair, you only need a quarter-sized amount of shampoo – double the amount if your hair is thick and long.

If your cuticles get damaged, your hair will become frizzy and fragile which is why you should be gentle when washing it. You should start by shampooing the roots with medium pressure and vertical strokes, which will stimulate proper growth and blood flow in the area. Circular motions will just tangle and break your hair, so you should avoid them completely.

Lather up towards the ends in straight strokes, but don’t scrub your hair because this will damage the ends.

Don’t wash your hair twice
If your hair is not extremely dirty or you didn’t lather the first time you washed it, you don’t need to wash your hair twice.

Apply conditioner from middle-lengths to tips
Before applying your conditioner, wash your hair with shampoo then squeeze it well. Hold your hair in place with a hair clip until you’re done showering then rinse it. The longer the conditioner stays on your hair, the better results it will provide.

Rinse with cold water in the end
A cold rinse in the end will shut the cuticles and make your hair shiny.
You should always use products that fit your hair type – use moisturizing shampoos and conditioners for dry hair, and color-safe shampoos for colored hair. If you’re using volume shampoos, apply a moisturizer too as they make your hair dry.

An oily hair requires a daily wash, while dry and normal hair require washing three times a week. Use a shower filter to remove the minerals and rust from the water which can make your hair hard.
