Today we will be explaining how to wash your hair properly. The hair isn’t washed daily, as there is no need to and it is not healthy to do so. This doesn’t mean that the hair will not carry on bacteria. It does.

One needs to start by choosing the right shampoos for his or her hair type. This means if your scalp is oily one must use a mint shampoo. Dandruff/ Curly .. and so on. One must always take a good look of his hair texture and type and consult with a hairstylist to find the best shampoos. Shampoos and conditioners are very effective on the scalp.

Shampooing Hair

When it comes to washing hair one needs to start by wetting the hair all over. Then continue by giving it a good scrub with the right shampoo. We have to add that when washing the hair, shall never scrub with their finger nails. When scrubbing with your finger nails you will be scratching the scalp. Often people do this without realizing that the they will be scratching the scalp tissue when using their finger nails. These will lead to having dandruff. By having dandruff one will also will have to change their shampoos. Carrying on, the amount of hair washes one shall have is one.

However to be totally safe and clean we prefer to suggest two. However this does not count to everyone. Let us explain. People with longer hair have a higher chance that after just one wash the hair will still be a bit greasy in so areas. If you ever noticed in fact when giving one shampoo the hair on long hair barely moves. To avoid this problem one can add some more water while with shampoo on, and continue scrubbing their scalp. We like to suggest that people with extremely short hair (Commonly being the male gender) wash their hair with one shampoo. While people with longer hair; Long bob and longer hair lengths (Commonly being the female gender) Wash their hair twice.

Conditioning Hair

The hair shall never be scrubbed together. When washing your hair the main focal attention shall go on the scalp. When scrubbing the hair together you will be creating friction, causing the hair to burn and frizz. Nevertheless be careful about this point, since most of us do it often without realizing. When the shampoo step/s are done, move on to the conditioner. After choosing the right conditioner apply a good amount on the palm of your hand. Before applying it to the hair make sue that the hair is squeezed from excessive water.

Apply conditioner from mid lengths to ends. Avoid putting pulps of conditioner directly with the scalp, this will only make it oilier if so. When one is finished applying conditioner to the ends, with what’s left on the palm (usually it will be colorless but oily) with your finger tips through the scalp to add moisture to the hair starting from the scalp as well. As long as you do not put pulps of conditioner and moving it into the scalp you’re all good.

Now this information given counts to those who have long hair. Those of you with shorter hair, what you have to do is put a very small amount of conditioner. Preferably on your index finger. Spread it in between both hands until both hands feel oily. With your finger tips go through your hair. Leave in the conditioner as long as the recommended time found on the back side of the bottle.

Conditioner is preferred by many, however we here suggest to use a mask instead of conditioner. However we do not recommend this to everyone. This is why you need to consult. Mask treatments are much more effective and stronger than conditioner. We know that people with thin hair will be scared to use this cause it will flatten their hair. However there are masks that are good for thin hair. For a close up look in understanding treatment Get To Know Different Treatment For Different Hair Types.
