It’s true. How you wash your affects how it performs, adding bounce and shine or stripping it away.
That’s why we thought we’d share the most beneficial way to wash your hair for hair that’s happy and manageable.
Start with a rinse. Hot water opens up the cuticles of the hair, which makes it easier to remove dirt and product. That’s why your hair should be thoroughly wet before you add any shampoo.
When hair is rinsed in warm water it loosens the oils throughout the scalp, opening the cuticles so that your hair can absorb the oil in your conditioner.
If you have long hair, condition first. Sound strange? Hear us out. If your hair has grown beyond your shoulders, it’s important to protect those fragile ends from further damage and dryness.
Running a small amount of conditioner through your hair first, then rinsing before adding shampoo fills up any holes in the cuticles with moisture. And that boosts shine and makes your hair smoother.
Lather only at the scalp. Shampoo at the scalp because the hair is the newest and most likely oiliest. Hair at the ends is oldest and driest. So put the shampoo where it’s needed most.
DON’T rinse and repeat. This is just a marketing ploy to get you to use more product. A second wash just strips the hair. If your hair is extremely dirty, then yes, a second round is warranted.
Remember to always be gentle with your hair. Friction can permanently damage it, leading to frizz and breakage. Just think of your hair in the same way as hand washing delicate clothing!
Because it really does need that TLC.
