How to Wash Hair
the Right Way
Have you noticed that when you get your hair washed at the salon, it feels softer and silkier and has more movement? The reason is not only the professional products, but the way that the hairdresser washes your hair. Using warm or cold water and aloe vera shampoo on your hair, gently massaging with shampoo over the entire surface of your scalp, and waiting for the conditioner to activate, are just a few essential tips for washing your hair correctly. Want to learn more and try them at home? It’s easy!
Don’t do it too often
Washing your hair too much strips the natural oils from your scalp, causing a rebound effect; the roots become even more oily.
Regulate the water temperature
It should be warm or cold, never too hot; excessive heat contributes to drying out your hair.
The amount of shampoo, especially one that has aloe vera for hair, equivalent to 1/4 of your palm is enough. Only use it once, so as not to weigh your hair down. You can also use aloe grow shampoo for the best results.
Apply circular movements for approximately 20 seconds, letting the shampoo run down your hair to the tips. And if you want longer and stronger hair, use aloe vera shampoo or fragrant shampoo that has aloe vera for hair growth. It has antibacterial properties that keep your scalp clean and dandruff-free.
Pay attention to the conditioner
Unlike shampoo, conditioner should only be applied to your hair and tips. Let it sit in your hair for 5 to 7 minutes.
Remember, less is more
An amount equal to a teaspoon is okay for short hair. For medium to long hair, half a tablespoon is enough.
Rinse your hair well
Ensure that all residue is removed. Rinse your hair once more in cold water; the thermal shock from the change in temperature gives it more shine!
Activate root circulation
While still in the shower, use a comb to carefully detangle your hair, always from the tips to the center of your hair.
