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 –

Stella McCartney POP Eau de Parfum is a bold and unique scent with a lovely fragrance. I love the top, heart and base notes. The fragrance suits my personality and it is great for the current season. Here are my pros and cons of this perfume –

 

PROS
  1. I love the packaging. The POP bottle is so pretty. The design stands out from the rest of the perfume bottles around.
  2. The fragrance is long-lasting. It stays on for about 6/7 hours, which is nice.
  3. I like the fragrance a lot. It is not too overpowering and it smells fresh.

 

CONS
  1. I like my perfumes lasting all day, so the fact that this stays on for about 6/7 hours is a bit disappointing.
  2. The bottle has a lid that also wants as a spray and it is a bit tricky to use. I would have preferred if the lid was removable with a regular spray. Those are usually better.
