Around the time we learn the ABCs, we also learn how to wash our hair, but unlike the alphabet, hair washing isn’t a particularly simple task. Your scalp and hair (such as hair loss) can suffer greatly from even minor mistakes made during the hair washing process. You’ve got a real headache on your hands when you factor in shampoo types, water temperature, and washing frequency.
When you are aware of your mistakes, there is always room for improvement. We have got you the causes and solutions.
You either don’t shampoo enough or shampoo too much
Ah, the age-old argument over how frequently to wash your hair. While too much washing can dry out your scalp and cause it to produce more oil to make up for it, too little washing can leave your scalp itchy and inflamed.
Hair-washing frequency is dependent on a number of factors, including lifestyle and hair texture, so there is no definitive answer. It’s best to wash your hair every other day if you have fine, oily hair. For those with dandruff, this is also the best method. Use Bioxsine Black Garlic Shampoo, which adds volume, vitality, and shine to the hair, contains 100% black garlic extract rich actives and offers complete hair care.
With black garlic and Biocomplex B11 herbal extract, Bioxcin Black Garlic Shampoo prevents hair loss while giving the hair more volume, vitality, and shine. Hair appears thicker and bushier thanks to bio-active peptides. Ivy extract aids in the growth of healthy hair.
Use of dry shampoo in excess
Dry shampoo is a godsend for second-day hair that is greasy; however, overusing it can lead to build-up, leaving strands limp and clogged hair follicles. Typically, I advise using dry shampoo no more than once or twice between washes.
You’re not thoroughly wetting your hair first
Even if you have a habit of snoozing your alarm, it’s easy to get impatient in the shower, but every strand needs to be completely saturated for a thorough cleaning. If you don’t, it will be more difficult to distribute the product through your hair and you’ll end up using more shampoo. Consequently, ensure that your hair is completely wet before applying shampoo to allow emulsification.
You massage too vigorously
We all enjoy a good head scrub at the salon, but we don’t do it frequently at home. Scratches on the scalp can leave scars if you massage too vigorously. The best technique is to scrub your scalp with the pads of your fingertips rather than your fingernails. To clean the scalp and hair, use circular motions with light pressure.
The ends are being shampooed
Don’t worry about the ends; concentrate on the sources. The ends may become tangled and knotted if they are purposefully emulsified. Additionally, if you’re not careful, not completely cleaning clogged hair follicles could result in hair loss.
Up until midlength, lather and massage the roots. When you rinse, let the water naturally flush the soap down.
You’re not shampooing for long enough
Although the slogan “fast and furious” is excellent, washing your hair is not the best use of it. You’re probably not doing it correctly if you’re in and out of the shower in five minutes. It’s crucial to give the scalp a thorough scrub and massage. This is significant because massage increases blood flow, which helps to maintain a healthy scalp. Healthy hair grows from a healthy scalp. Using circular motions while shampooing for two to three minutes is a good habit.
Here are some hair washing techniques.
Follow this step-by-step guide to washing and conditioning your hair, as recommended by a Asraderm, now that we know what not to do.
Before shampooing, soak hair in warm water
The first step in removing product build-up, dirt, and oil from your hair is to use water. Water is also necessary to create a thick lather. Since most shampoos resemble concentrates, water helps thin them out so you can apply them to your scalp with ease. This stage involves opening the cuticle with warm water.
Starting with a root-to-tip shampoo
Depending on the length and density of your hair, use a dollop of shampoo the size of a dime to a quarter. Since oil is produced at the scalp, begin lathering at the hairline and massage toward the ends.
Not your hair, but your scalp
A vigorous scrub can be too much for hair strands but is great for the health of the scalp. Try to gently “massage” the shampoo into your stands rather than “scrunch” it to avoid damaging the cuticle.
Repeat the process if necessary
The first shampoo application might not be as effective if it has been a while since your last hair wash. If your hair was very greasy or product-rich when you started, repeat the process twice. If it doesn’t generate a thick lather after the first shampoo, that’s a good sign that it’s still dirty.
Rinse your shampoo well
If there is any remaining shampoo in the house, your conditioner won’t be able to do its job. Rinse thoroughly for at least three minutes, paying special attention to the nape of the neck and the back of the head. Before applying conditioner, thoroughly ring out your hair to prevent dilution.
Saturate the bottom half of your hair with conditioner
The best practice is to only use conditioner on your ends, regardless of your hair type or texture. Use your fingers as a comb to rake conditioner through the length of your hair after applying it to the ends. In addition to removing tangles, this will help distribute product evenly. Herbal BioComplex B11, which is clinically tested and especially formulated to help combat thinning – damaged hair and includes herbal extracts with naturally occurring minerals and essential fatty acids that nourishes, strengthens, and encourages thicker and fuller-looking hair, is present in Bioxsine Dermagen Cream Conditioner. It is designed specifically for people who lose their hair and/or who want to maintain and promote the growth of hair that is stronger. It aids in moisturizing and giving your hair a soft and healthy texture while nourishing the hair follicles, bolstering their roots, and promoting the growth of thicker, healthier hair. Both men and women with all types of hair can benefit from it.
Cold water should be used to rinse the conditioner
While most people prefer warm water for rinsing, experts advise turning the heat down for the last rinse. If you can handle it, rinsing out conditioner with cool water helps lock in nutrients and smooth the cuticle for shiny, smooth hair. The sheen you’ll have after the shower will appreciate it even though it might not be the most comfortable.
Salon-worthy strands don’t have to stop at the hairdresser, so why not treat yourself like a queen? Your hair is like a crown you can’t take off. Asraderm’s hair products will help you level up your hair game, and there are plenty of easy things you can do at home to improve your shampoo game.
