How to wash your hair properly

*Affiliate links.

It took me many years to realise I have been washing my hair all wrong. We tend to pay more attention to our skin than our hair for some weird reason. We spend time cleaning, toning and moisturising our face. On some days, we even use a face mask. However, when it comes to hair wash days, many of us spend a couple of minutes and we are done. I only recently started washing my hair properly, and I can see the difference already with the way my hair looks.

How to wash your hair properly

So how do you wash your hair properly? You need time and the right products and technique to get your hair clean and moisturised. It is going to take more than 2 minutes in the shower to achieve this. So if you have been washing your hair wrong all these years, these easy to follow steps may come in handy –

 

Use your shampoo sparingly

You don’t need a lot of shampoo to get your hair clean. A little goes a long way. The key is to ensure you massage the shampoo into your hair for about 5 minutes. That way the shampoo sinks into the hair and all the goodness is soaked it.

 

Rinse and rinse again

Once you have massaged the shampoo into the hair, you need to rinse and rinse again to ensure all traces of the shampoo are out of your hair. You should rinse your hair more than you think is required, that way you will be sure there is no trace of shampoo left in your hair and the hair feels like wet hair with no products in.

 

Use warm water

Make sure the water you are using is the right temperature. Warm water is the best for washing your hair. Cold water tangles the hair and hot water will strip the hair off all the moisture.

 

Use the conditioner correctly

You should ensure your read the label on the conditioner and follow the instructions on how to use it. You should leave your conditioner in for the time required.

 

Use the right products

I use SheaMoisture shampoo and conditioner and I have done so since I went natural. There is a range for everyone, so do try the different ranges until you find the right one for your hair type. Here are a few ideas here –

Heed These 6 Tips When Shopping for Spa Robes

*Collaborative post.

 Spa robes used to be worn solely in spas during the course of a spa treatment to help make customers feel more comfortable and relaxed. But time after time, such a norm has changed. Nowadays, spa robes can already be seen in households for their potential to transform bathrooms and bedrooms into a haven of rest and relaxation.

As much as more people are getting hooked on wearing spa robes at home for that instant ultimate luxury and therapeutic pampering experience, as comfy as they are, spa robes also come at a hefty price. To get a quality and cozy spa robe, you have to pay $25 at the least. That said, it pays to know how to make a wise purchase to make sure you get the best value of your spa robes budget.

 

Spa Robes Shopping Tips

So, heads up, beginners! When shopping for your first spa robe, you may want to heed the tips below:

 

  1. Your spa robe has to fit well.

A spa robe’s price does not absolutely mirror its quality. There are also other important factors that can help enhance your robe spa robe experience and one of these is the spa robe’s size.

Make sure you choose the right size. Otherwise, that luxurious experience you have imagined might turn out to be a cause of great annoyance or disappointment.

 

  1. Choose the spa robe that best suits with how you intend to use it.

Spa robes, nowadays, are worn for a variety of purposes. Besides being a spa and massage treatment outfit, others wear it as plain bathrobe before and after taking a bath or as a comfortable garment at home especially in the bedroom. Unfortunately, you cannot simply purchase one spa robe and expect it to go well on all occasions.

If it’s to serve as a plain bathrobe, you should prioritize on getting a robe with a more absorbent material. Otherwise, opt for a more breathable robe that best suits your lounging hours at home. Meanwhile, if your purpose is to wear an extra layer to keep you warm during the winter season, then go for thicker spa robes. Somehow, it is always better to touch the robe in person or fit it to make sure that it can go well with how you plan it to use.

  1. Choose the kind of cotton and fabric you prefer.

The Cotton Material

Choosing the right type of cotton in shopping for your spa robe is also necessary as this can influence and affect the robe’s longevity, functionality, and maintenance.

You can either have a spa robe made of natural cotton and polyester or you can opt for the better option that is the Turkish cotton.

Turkish cotton is a kind of premium cotton from Aegean, Turkey which has longer fibers which add to the robe’s softness, absorbency, and fluffiness. Oftentimes, Turkish cotton is compared to luxury Egyptian cotton; a huge part of the market prefers Turkish more over the latter as it wins in terms of absorbency, fluffiness that improves over time, and most importantly, Turkish cotton is way more affordable.

If you are on a tight budget, however, you can still go for polyester-natural cotton combination and still feel happy about your purchase. On the upside, such a combination is considered more versatile, more durable, and is easier to wash or maintain. Unlike pure cotton, poly-cotton blends do not shrink easily and are usually free of wrinkles.

 

The Fabric Material

Two popular and most commonly used spa robe fabrics are terry cloth robes and waffle spa robes which produce different finishes.

Terry cloths are thick and soft. Oftentimes used to make towels, terry cloth is ace in terms of absorbency and comfort. If you are looking for a spa robe to wear at home while watching TV on the couch or on your bed, then you should get a terry cloth robe and enjoy that cozy and warm feel.

Waffle spa robes are pretty much as cozier, absorbent, and comfortable as terry robes but they are lighter to wear and thus, easier to wash, maintain, or dry. This is the reason why a lot of hotels and spas prefer waffle knit robes over terry robes.

In terms of look, both terry and waffle spa robes are equally aesthetically great and elegant.

  1. Watch the length.

Most of spa robes are long. Nonetheless, the robe industry is following three standard spa robe length options: short, knee length, and long. Short is until mid-thigh, knee length is inches longer but is still above the knees, and lastly, long is until the mid-calf level.

Your spa robe’s length is an important consideration too if your location experience the full range of seasons.

 

  1. Pick the design and color that best captured your heart.

Basically, you can choose from three spa robe designs if you are shopping for one: kimono robes, spa robes with hoods, and the shawl collar robes.

If you have been imagining of that minimalist and elegant look at your cozy bedroom, then go for that sleek kimono robe design that has collar-less robe drapes wrapping your body. Meanwhile, for the winter season, you can go for a much cozier robe with a hood and enjoy that extra warmth it gives. Lastly, if achieving a lavish, subtle look is your priority, then you should get the shawl collar robe that has rolled collar and folded cuffs.

In terms of color, some spa robe brands offer over 20 color choices; sometimes with extra elegant fabric prints.

 

  1. It’s fun to accessorize!

Instead of visiting a high-end spa or a luxury hotel, you can actually save money and just pick the best luxury robe that you can wear at home. And if you think it’s not enough, you can always accessorize to achieve a more luxurious look, i.e. getting that fabulous headbands or pair of slippers that match the color and design of your robe.

Now, if you do not have that styling gift, simply get the spa robe that you best prefer and have it customized or embroidered for a fee or you can just leave it as is. After all, it’s that luxurious and cozy feel you are after, right?
