It is absolutely ok to follow particular hair wash process until your hair is facing any problem with that. If you are noticing that your hair is becoming fragile and dry with time, then it is not always the problem of your hair products, it can be your hair washing techniques too. Many times it is seen that people are facing split end problems and dryness problem with wrong or harsh showering techniques. So, here you will get some very effective and easy hair washing or showering techniques to get lustrous and healthy hair.
Streaming is very important:
Steaming is a must-have step in your hair wash routine. It will help your scalp to breath properly, open clogged pores and maintain the moisture level of your hair strands which is very important for getting healthy hair. Soak a towel in hot water for few minutes, then wring out the excess water and wrap your full-length hair with it. Leave it for 20-30 minutes before taking shower.
Massage your scalp after steaming:
Give a good massage to your scalp before shampooing, it will loosen up the product build ups and dirt easily. It also stimulates the blood flow on your scalp and gives strength to your hair.
Use lukewarm or cold water for hair wash:
Don’t use hot water for hair wash, it can harm the moisture layer of the hair. So, to achieve super healthy hair, you have to use lukewarm or cold water at the time of shampooing. Our hair cuticles are coated with natural oils produced by the scalp. Use of hot water will drastically harm them and make your hair fragile. Cold water or lukewarm water can maintain the moisture and give your shinier and softer hair. This process will also help you from excessive frizz.
Use chemical free shampoo:
I guess this is the most popular known fact these days. Most of the shampoos in the market are infused with paraben and SLS, paraben is used as preservative and SLS helps to form leather. These chemicals not only dries out the hair texture but also carcinogenic and have several bad effects on health. So, try to use natural hair cleansers and read the ingredient list first before buying any product. Organic shikakai, amla, reetha powders can be used as a natural hair wash, these will give you naturally healthy hair in very less time period.
Don’t stretch time of shampooing:
Complete your entire hair wash process in between 15 minutes because wet hairs are more fragile than normal hair. Immediately after washing, pat dry your hair and apply conditioner on the length of your hair and wash it off after 2-3 minutes with cold water. Dry it properly without a blow dry.
Adequate use of conditioner:
Don’t use a bulk amount of conditioner on your hair, it will make your hair more greasy. If you don’t have volume in your hair, then it will make your hair look very bad. Never use your conditioner on your scalp, just apply it on the length of your hair.
Avoid aggressive rubbing while drying:
Most of us used to rub our hair aggressively or just coil it up with the help of a towel, both these methods are tremendously bad for our hair. Just pat dry your hair with a t-shirt or cotton cloth and let your hair dry normally.
Healthy hair is everyone’s dream, so, let’s start good shower techniques and flaunt healthy hair in front of the world.
