Washing your hair may seem like a task too simple to mess up. In theory, it’s easy enough – your hair gets dirty, so you shampoo and condition it. Many people don’t know that hair washing techniques can actually cause more damage to their hair than benefit it. With these top tips from the top ladies hairdressers at Suki Hair, you can be sure that you are washing your hair the right way and avoid hair washing mistakes that are all too common.
Don’t Wash Your Hair Too Often
This is one of the most common mistakes and one you’ve probably heard before. Most people don’t need to wash their hair daily, washing once every other day at most will do the trick. Washing too often causes more oil to build on your scalp, which means your hair will actually look dirty faster than if you leave it unwashed.
Detangle Your Hair Before You Wash It
Your hair is more fragile when it’s wet. Gently detangle your hair from the ends up to the root before you wash it.
Switch Up Your Shampoo
Your hair’s needs change depending on a few factors, including the season, lifestyle changes and hobbies. Change up your shampoo every so often and use a clarifying shampoo a few times a month for a deep clean.
Use Correct Technique
Start by making sure your hair is well saturated with water before applying shampoo directly to your palms and working up a lather. Spread the lather through your hair and focus on your scalp, giving it a good massage as you work the shampoo in.
Use The Right Amount Of Conditioner
Keep your hair soft, shiny and luscious with conditioner. Apply conditioner to the bottom two-thirds of your hair and comb it through with a wide-toothed comb. Using too little will make it difficult to detangle your hair. Too much will weigh it down. You’ll find a good balance as you comb through your hair.
Be sure to really rinse out your shampoo and conditioner, or you may feel your hair is limp and dull. Use cool water rather than steaming hot to rinse your hair to avoid damaging it.
