Every girl loves healthy hair and girls do every possible thing to make their hair strong, but still have split ends and breakage in hair. Why do this happen? Even when you apply oil regularly and use expensive shampoo to nourish your hair, the reason is we try nourishing hair with expensive products, but forget some basic steps that should be followed while washing hair and that is what hair washing blunder is.
Hair Washing Blunders that Most Women Make in Shower
Hot water shower
Washing hair with hot water is comfy, but you should stop doing it now because it may give pleasure to you while bathing but it do harm your hair. Instead, use lukewarm water to wash your hair it will open up the hair cuticles, and maximize the effect of your shampoo and conditioner, but that to wash your hair once at the end with cold water as it will help to close the hair cuticles and will keep the moisture locked in your scalp.
Washing hair 3 days a week
Washing hair on a regular basis to get flawless traces is a myth, it actually reduces the natural oil on your scalp and results in dry scalp. And if you are doing this, you are on a wrong track and should immediately change your hair washing routine. Try to give a gap of at least three days between the wash.
Avoid changing shampoos frequently
Trying new shampoo is very exciting, new fragrance, new hair texture, everything wne looks so good at the beginning, but do you know it’s the worst thing you are doing to your hair. Changing shampoo frequently makes your scalp weak. So, don’t change your shampoo oftenly and stick to the one that suits you well.
Using a lot of shampoo
Most of the girls think using a lot of shampoo will give extra shine or nourishment to their hair, but it’s a hair washing blunder that most of us make. Too much foam can prevent the shampoo from doing its work. So, we should use a small amount of shampoo to wash hair and if needed to then take again, but using a lot of shampoo at once will not give you any extra nourishment.
Washing hair too quickly
Women who say they wash their hair within 4-5 minutes and are very proud of saving their time, here’s a sad news for you as you are not doing justice to your hair care routine. It is advised to massage your scalp while washing your hair, this is the time when you are relaxed and by doing massage, it will not only clear the hair roots, but will also improve blood circulation.
Conditioning your hair
After a head wash, your scalp regains its natural oils that were stripped off by the shampoo, but your scalp gets drier and needs conditioner for your hair. Conditioning hair also reduces friction and consequent breakage when you brush your hair. Thus, using conditioner is a must when you want to have beautiful and strong hair.
Avoid brushing your hair when it’s wet
Brushing your hair when it’s wet can actually break the maximum number of hair because your hair are the weakest when they are wet. And chances of hairfall is likely to be more when hair are wet than when hair are dry.
Use cotton towels
Using cotton towels avoid breakage and split ends, and while towelling your hair be gentle and do not rub your hair as your hair are the weakest when they are wet, resulting hairfall.
So, these were some hair washing blunder that most of us do in the shower.
