Cleanse Your Hair Right

Aug 18, 2007
Felt like you're not cleansing your hair right? Well, check these easy steps and you can find out for yourself.

Step 1. Completely wet scalp and hair using cool or warm water. Avoid using hot water for it can dry out both your scalp and hair. Pour a little amount of shampoo into your palm; a quarter size will do. Evenly distribute it on your hands by rubbing your palms together. Next, apply the shampoo onto the scalp using your fingers. In shampooing, keep in mind that what's important is to clean the scalp and not to tousle your hair. Concentrate more on gently massaging the scalp allowing the suds to be dispersed through the hair as it is being rinsed. If your scalp is oily, you may want to repeat this step twice.

Step 2. Condition your hair right. After shampooing, apply some conditioner on one hand then rub your palms together to evenly distribute it on your hands. Next, application of the conditioner should start from the hair's middle portion right down to the ends or tips. There is really no need to massage the scalp with a conditioner unless your scalp is too dry. To evenly disperse the conditioner, use a comb to comb hair. For a minute, leave the conditioner so as to smoothen the cuticles after which you rinse completely. To do this, stand directly below the shower and in a gentle manner, lift your hair in order for water to get to the scalp. Make sure no residue of shampoo or conditioner is left in the scalp. How do you know? Well, simply check your hair. If it feels clean as you let your fingers run through your hair, then it has been rinsed well. For thorough rinsing, you may also use cold water.

Step 3. Know when to wash and not to wash. Frequency in shampooing depends on what kind of hair you have. It it's curly, it is best to shampoo every other day so as not to make it fluffy from being washed often. If hair is straight, it'd be fine to shampoo everyday since straight hair needs to have that clean, beaming look.

Step 4. No need to change shampoos. Fortunately, most shampoos don't build resistance on hair. They will continue to effectively work every time you use them thus, no need to change shampoos. What you need to bear in mind though is that it is good to occasionally shampoo without the use of conditioners or other hair products. This is to give your hair some break.
