Secrets About Washing Your Hair

Prep your Hair

Although usually they claim that prepping isn’t necessary we still find it to be a very important part of the procedure. In fact if you try it for once you’ll see that the results are totally worth it.

By prepping your hair before washing it you’ll condition the follicles and moisturize your cuticles aiding to the entire nourishing process.

Use a Pre-Shampoo Treatment

Of course that means applying any oil of your preference before shampooing. Oils will help you to moisturize and condition your hair. Also oils boost up protection and prevent your hair from getting damaged.

To enjoy the effects of the so-beneficial oils you need to apply them on your strands, cover and let it set for about an hour before you shampoo your hair.

Use the Right Shampoo

A lot depends on the shampoo that you’re using. So you need to make sure you’re using the right formulas. Opt for shampoos that are specifically designed for your hair type and switch it if you don’t find it effective.

Always Read the Label on the Back

To find out whether the shampoo that you’re about to buy is the right one of you, you need to read the label on the back. Also according to experts of the field it is a good idea to read the ingredients and avoid buying a shampoo that’s not sulfate-free as sulfates are considered harmful for the hair.

Know What’s Good for your Hair and What’s Not

There are so many beauty tips and tricks out there that sometimes it really hard to understand which one is the best for the condition of our hair. What to do? Of course what you need to do first of all is figure out what’s beneficial for your hair type and what’s not. Now to understand what does your hair need you need is a real quick strand test. The latter assumes taking one strand and pulling the ends of it apart. If your hair is very elastic then it needs more protein while if it’s brittle then moisturizing formulas are exactly what you need.

Detangle Gently

Although it’s a difficult process that requires patience, it is a very important part of the whole process. Now to help you with that we suggest detangling your hair right after applying conditioner. Also using your hands instead of a comb would be a good idea.

Wash your Hair Right

Ok girls we have to admit that we’re all washing our hair the wrong way. Turns out that while washing we have to concentrate on the scalp and condition only the ends. Also finishing with a cold wash is also something that we have to necessarily do as it helps to lock the moisture.

Remember that Less is More

Never wash your hair on a daily basis. Wash it at least every second day and use dry shampoo in between because over-washing can also harm it.

Condition your Hair

Conditioning is a must! Now for better effects we suggest applying conditioner and letting it on the needed surface for about an hour. While in the process you can either sit under a hooded dryer or just cover your hair with a warm towel.

Co-Washing is a Good Idea

Co-washing assumes using conditioner instead of shampoo. Although it sounds weird, it can be a very effective way to cleanse and nourish your hair. Give it a try and see how you like the results.
