Learn how to wash your hair correctly no matter your hair type or texture. You may have grown up with a certain way of cleansing your hair and just continued on with that method because you just didn’t know any differently.
But now you realize that your hair isn’t quite the mane that you desire and you think your method of shampooing could have something to do with it. Well, this article will help you learn step-by-step how to wash your hair.
- The first thing you want to do is make sure that your hair is detangled. Take a wide-tooth comb or a Denman brush and go through your hair section by section getting rid of any and all tangles.
- If you’re washing long hair, you’ll want to divide your hair into two halves. This will make it easier to shampoo and keep any tangles away. This trick also works well for super curly or African American hair.
- Now, the next thing is to get in the shower. That’s right. No washing your hair in the kitchen sink or leaning over the bathtub. Those places are only if you’re interested in getting tangles and spending extra time on your hair than necessary.
- Once in the shower, you’ll want to use the shower head to completely saturate your hair with warm water. The water should not be hot, but it can be closer to hot than to warm. As you’re saturating your hair, run your fingers through your hair and scalp to loosen up the dirt and styling products.
- Using a natural cleansing shampoo, take a few quarter dollops and apply to your roots. Begin massaging in the shampoo to the hair closest to your roots. You’ll want to concentrate on your roots at this point to avoid over-drying the length of your hair. You’ll get to it soon enough. Also remember to not pile your hair on top of your head. Just gently massage the shampoo in.
- Now, you’ve gotten a lot of the dirt from your scalp loosened, you are ready for the first rinse. Thoroughly rinse your hair concentrating on your scalp until there are no more suds.
- Grab your moisturizing shampoo and repeat the process except this time you’ll want to lightly cleanse the length and ends of your hair. Rinse thoroughly again.
- Your hair should be completely clean and ready for conditioning.
