You've Been Washing Your Hair The Wrong Way All This Time. Find Out Why!

One of our daily routines is washing our hair when we take a bath. And it's something all of us know how to do. But have you ever wondered why you are having 'bad hair days' sometimes?
That's because you're washing your hair the wrong way. Doing it wrong can make your hair look fuzzy and damaged, preventing you from having that smooth, silky hair you've always wanted.

Properly washing your hair can help alleviate this issue and can make a difference in your hair's overall health. Take a look at these tips on how to wash your hair correctly! 1. Start by rinsing your hair
Your hair should be generously wet before you apply any shampoo. Hot water is mostly recommended as it opens up the scalp's cuticle to better absorb the oils present in your shampoo.

2. If you have long hair, use a conditioner first
It's advised to use a conditioner first if you have long hair. This fills up any holes in the cuticle with moisture, resulting in a smoother hair with more shine.

3. Lather up only at the scalp
We tend to shampoo our hair from root to tip, but it's best to lather up only the scalp. This is because the hair close to the scalp is the oiliest while the back ends of your hair are the driest, most fragile part.
