“If my hair looks good, I can deal with anything!”
Do you feel like you can conquer the world on days when your hair is at its best behavior? You do, right? Well, flaunting a good hair day every single day is a distant dream for most of us. While some days are all about freshly-washed hair, others days are about second-day, oily hair.
We all have been using the oiling before shampooing trick for our tresses; to achieve glossier locks after a hair wash. But are you even washing your hair the right way in order to keep them healthy, fresh and grease-free? If not, then here are a few hair-washing tricks you need to master, and you’ll be sorted for life...
- Section before shampoo
- Don’t skip the back of your head
- Wash the hairline to prevent greasiness
- Two short washes work better than one long wash
- Let the conditioner work its magic
Section before shampoo
Before you put shampoo and conditioner directly onto your hair, it’s ideal to section your hair. Section it into four strands and then rotate each section of the hair. This will help stimulate the scalp.
Don’t skip the back of your head
Most of us don’t take the trouble of washing the back of our head as properly as the front. It is important to move the hair around or else you’ll get build-up resulting in an irritated scalp and itchiness behind the ears.
Wash the hairline to prevent greasiness
The foundations and creams that we put on our face, goes directly onto our hairline as well. This causes grease to build-up in the hairline. It is, therefore, important to care for your hairline equally. Ensure that the shampoo reaches the hairline each time.
Two short washes work better than one long wash
While it’s not a good idea to over-wash your hair; it’s ideal to stick to 2-3 times a week. But, whenever you go for a hair-wash, try and opt for two short washes instead of one long wash. This way, you’ll cover the entire head, in case you’ve missed out on some areas in the first wash.
Let the conditioner work its magic
The hair on top is always going to be shinier than the ends. Precisely why, you need to give your ends some extra TLC. When you condition your hair, let the conditioner sit on your strands for a few minutes before you rinse. This will leave you with nourished and healthy mane.
