• How to Wash Your Hair—The Right Way

    Helloo beauties!

    i'm gonna talk 'bout hair washing, since it's apparently causing a huge debate :')

    K so hair washing is really confusing; i mean, growing up, i ws being taught that we should wash it daily, Now everybody sayin we should probably be doin it a couple times a week—& tbh i'm still pretty confused about how we should wash our hair correctly when it comes to the actual process of cleansing.

    we all want our hair healthy & shiny—but if you’re making some common mistakes, you could be damaging your beautiful hair without even realizing it! so i did some research nd hopefully it's gonna work..

    so to begin with, here's a few steps that hopefully will help you get the perfect hair.

    much lovee <3

     

    1. Start with a rinse
    Just like your laundry needs a rinse cycle before you add detergent, hair should be thoroughly wet before you add your shampoo. Hot water will open the cuticle, which is good for removing any dirt or product trapped in the hair. When your hair is rinsed in warm water, it loosens the oils through the scalp and opens the cuticle so it is able to absorb the oil in your conditioner.

    2. If you have long hair, condition first
    If you have hair beneath the shoulders, protect fragile ends from drying out and further damage by running a small amount of conditioner through them and lightly rinsing, before any shampooing. This will not only keep ends healthy, it will fill any holes in the cuticle with moisture, making it smoother and boosting shine.

    3. Lather up — but only at the scalp
    You only need to shampoo the hair at the scalp, particularly at the nape. The best way to lather up is from roots to ends. The hair closest to the scalp is the youngest and will inevitably be the oiliest, while the end of the hair is the oldest and usually driest, most fragile part of the hair.
    Don’t use more shampoo than you need; a quarter-sized amount of shampoo is enough. If your hair is particularly long or thick, go ahead and double that.

    4. Be gentle!
    Friction can permanently damage your hair’s cuticle, leading to breakage and frizz. Think about washing your hair like you hand wash your delicates — very carefully.
    Start your lather at the roots, Increase blood flow to the scalp and stimulate hair growth by using vertical strokes with medium pressure. Don’t use circular motions, which can tangle your hair. Next, Smooth the lather over the ends in a straight stroking motion. Do not scrub the fragile ends or use a back and forth motion like you’re washing a rag on a washboard.

    5. Don’t rinse and repeat
    Despite what the instructions on the back of your shampoo bottle may say, there’s no need to wash your hair twice. Avoid stripping the hair by doing one shampoo only, Unless the hair is extremely dirty and the first shampoo didn’t produce a lather. In that case, go ahead and lather up one more time.

    6. Add conditioner from the mid-lengths to the tips
    After you’ve rinsed out your shampoo, squeeze some of the water out of the hair before you put in the conditioner, Then clip your hair up and finish showering, leaving the conditioner rinse out for the final step of your shower.
    The longer the conditioner stays on your hair, the better it absorbs. Don’t put conditioner at the roots of your hair; the natural oil from your scalp is more concentrated there.

    7. Finish with a cold water rinse
    Cold water will shut the cuticle tight, sealing the shingle-like outer layer, which will cause it to reflect the most light and give off the most shine.
