We ladies love to look good! we love the healthy black hair. as such, we do not waste time in keeping our hair clean. In doing this we love to shampoo and wash our hair clean to avoid the smelly hair. However there are quite a number of mistakes we make while washing our hair that we have come to see as right.
These mistakes are;
Using the Same Shampoo All Year Round
This means shampooing the hair too frequently. Ideally, we should shampoo every other day. It is also advisable to switch shampoos occasionally to prevent buildup of certain ingredients (like silicone).
Every couple of months, replace your current shampoo with another formulated for your hair type.
We can also use a clarifying shampoo once a month for a healthy long hair.
Not Completely Wetting the Hair Before Shampooing
Without enough water, shampoo doesn’t lather—and you may be inclined to compensate by using more product, thus hurting your wallet and hair. Stand under the shower spray for an extra minute before using your shampoo.
Always Applying Your Shampoo to the Same Spot on your Scalp
You might notice that the top of your scalp is dry or flaky. Try alternating your routine by starting your shampoo at the nape of your neck and distributing the lather onto your hair before moving toward the top of your head.
De-tangling Your Hair With Your Fingertips
To avoid damaging hair, massage your scalp with your fingertips rather than your fingernails or palms.
Rinsing With Hot Water
This is one very wrong thing to do to your hair. This has damaged the scalp of a number of women. Piping hot water dries your scalp and hair. Use lukewarm instead, this helps to preserve your hair colour.
There you have it, the certain things we have always felt we do right without knowing the damage caused to our hair. Let’s begin to do things right in order to achieve a healthy scalp.
