Five tips on how properly wash your hair

Beautiful, strong, shiny hair is not only genetics, but also thorough care. The process of shampooing takes a special place in it.

  1. Comb your hair thoroughly before washing.

Comb your hair thoroughly before washing it, especially if it is thick and long. Start at the ends to avoid trauma to the hair. Take time for this procedure, it will take 3 minutes to comb. This will help improve blood circulation in the scalp. In addition, the hair is less tangled and, thus, less traumatized. Combs must be clean, periodically wash the comb.

To prevent the comb from ruining your hair, opt for materials such as silicone, wood, bone, or natural bristles.

  1. Wet your hair well, as without this you will not get a large amount of foam.

Most often, if there is not enough foam, it is not because there is little shampoo, but due to lack of water. Apply the rule of “less shampoo, more water.”

Shampoos without sulfates tend to foam worse, so keep this in mind when using them. Also, it is very important to pay attention to the composition of the shampoo. For example, if you have thick hair that is prone to oily, then you should exclude products that contain silicones.

  1. The water should be little warm, insofar as hot water activates the sebaceous glands. Therefore, you should avoid washing your head with hot water. When washing your head, hand movements should be circular, along the course of hair growth, unhurried and neat. Carefully soap the scalp and hair along its entire length. It is also not recommended to wash your hair with your head tilted, as this provokes tangling of the hair, and after that the hair may start to fall out more. Wash your hair twice with shampoo and thoroughly clean your scalp and hair.
  2. For proper care, you need to choose the right shampoo. It is best that the shampoo is chosen for you by a professional hairdresser or trichologist. These specialists will be able to objectively assess the condition of your hair and scalp, determine their type and choose care. You may need special shampoos, such as anti-dandruff (such as Arcolane) or anti-hair loss (such as Anaphase).
  3. Pay attention to care products that used after washing your hair.

Be sure to apply conditioner to washed hair. It glues together scales that have opened during washing, reduces the electrification of the hair and makes it easier to comb. Remember that shampoo only cleanses. Care is provided when you use balms, conditioners and masks. Remember that these products should not be applied to the roots. The scalp itself produces a protective film, so a conditioner and mask applied on top will create a feeling of unwashed and oily scalp.

It is not recommended using shampoo-conditioner (two in one). Shampoo and conditioner have different pH levels (acid-base balance). Therefore it is impossible to mix these liquids in one bottle and at the same time to keep their functions in full.
