Washing Your Hair Right

Washing Your Hair Right

It's surprising the​ way some people treat their hair. Instead of​ giving it​ the​ respect it​ deserves,​ they tug at​ it​ with their hair brush,​ secure it​ with plain elastic bands that stick to​ the​ hair,​ lick it,​ chew it,​ clean their inky hands with it,​ stick their pens in​ it,​ wipe that excess eye-liner off on​ it,​ and while shampooing,​ rub it,​ scrub it,​ pull it​ and generally bash it​ around before stuffing it​ under the​ full blast of​ a​ hair dryer. Phew! It's shameful. Just because they're not going bald in​ a​ hurry,​ they take it​ for​ granted. And then they wonder why their hair isn't a​ shiny,​ swinging,​ sexy mane like in​ the​ ads,​ in​ spite of​ using the​ same shampoo! Well,​ understand the​ facts of​ life. Hair is​ delicate,​ growing stuff which need to​ be handled with care. a​ lot of​ care.

It is​ not recommended to​ wash hair twice in​ succession,​ as​ often recommended by shampoo manufacturers. the​ first shampoo will wash your hair and the​ second will strip your hair of​ its nutrients. By repeating,​ you​ can irritate your scalp and overly dry your hair. HOWEVER,​ a​ long rinsing with water is​ a​ good habit,​ even if​ you​ are in​ a​ hurry; else,​ the​ hair will be dull and more sensitive to​ external irritants.

Use cold water as​ a​ final rinse; it​ will make your hair shinier. the​ cold water closes the​ scales that the​ hair has on​ its surface,​ which open when washed with hot water. Moreover,​ if​ your scalp tends to​ be greasy,​ cold water prevents dilatation of​ sebaceous glands and moderate sebum production.

Use mild shampoos if​ you​ want to​ wash often (they create fewer bubbles but this doesn't mean that they don't wash well; excess suds are more aggressive). Do not use children's shampoos,​ which are not soft but less galling; they contain over-greasing agents that make the​ hair more loose.

Use anti dandruff shampoos with care; they are more aggressive,​ can make hair less lively,​ irritate the​ scalp,​ and can actually increase the​ production of​ dandruff.

If you​ have forked hair (split ends),​ the​ only solution is​ to​ cut it​ and use a​ hydrating treatment to​ protect the​ new ends.
