Maybe you’re one of those people who want to have perfect hair like the models you see in magazines or TV, and you’re spending a lot of money and time on your hair and still not getting perfect, like you want.
But, here’s one fact that you may didn’t know: you might not really know how to wash your hair the right way!
You can make a big change and difference in your hair’s health, bounce and shine, but if you don’t wash your hair in the right way, you could be damaging your lovely locks without even realizing it.
We ask Kyle White, who is a lead colorist at Oscar Blandi Salon, and hair stylist Nunzio Saviano of Nunzio Saviano Salon in New York, to share with us their best tips for lathering up—and doing it the right way, and found out some really helpful tips.
– You should start with a rinse.
It very simple, just like the laundry needs a rinse cycle before you add detergent, the same goes for your hair. Should be completely wet before you add your shampoo. This will enable the hot water to open the cuticle, which is good for removing any dirt from the hair.
– If you have long hair, condition first and then shampoo, not the opposite way.
If you have long hair, like approximately beneath the shoulders, protect fragile ends from drying out by running a small amount of conditioner through them and lightly rinsing, before any shampooing. This will not only keep ends healthy, it will fill any holes in the cuticle with moisture, making it smoother and boosting shine,” says White.
– Be gentle!
You can permanently damage your hair’s cuticle if you rub too much, leading to breakage and frizz. Try to wash your hair like you hand wash your delicates — very carefully.
– Don’t rinse and repeat.
Despite what the instructions on the back of your shampoo bottle may say, there’s no need to wash your hair twice, like most people do.
“Avoid stripping the hair by doing one shampoo only, which is usually sufficient,” says White. “Unless the hair is extremely dirty and the first shampoo didn’t produce lather,” in which case, go ahead and lather up one more time.
– Add conditioner from the mid-lengths to the tips.
After you’ve rinsed out your shampoo, “squeeze some of the water out of the hair before you put in the conditioner,” says Saviano.
“Then clip your hair up and finish showering, leaving the conditioner rinse out for the final step of your shower.”
Also don’t forget that you should hold longer the conditioner on your hair, the better it absorbs. Don’t put conditioner at the roots of your hair; the natural oil from your scalp is more concentrated there.
– Lather up — but only at the scalp.
“You only need to shampoo the hair at the scalp, particularly at the nape,” Saviano says.
The best way to lather up is from roots to ends. The hair closest to the scalp is the youngest and will inevitably be the oiliest, while the end of the hair is the oldest and usually driest, most fragile part of the hair.”
You may think or heard from somewhere that more shampoo is good for your hair, but that’s not true. A quarter-sized amount of shampoo is enough. If your hair is particularly long or thick, then you can double that.
– Finish with a cold water rinse.
“Cold water will shut the cuticle tight, sealing the shingle-like outer layer, which will cause it to reflect the most light and give off the most shine,” says White.
Here are some additional hair washing tips…
Everything depends on your hair type, the same is for the washing. So, if you have oily or fine hair, you may need to shampoo daily. Normal or dry hair can lather up closer to three times a week.
It is very important to use a shampoo and conditioner that’s made for your hair type. If your hair is dry, choose moisturizing products. If you color your hair, opt for color-safe formulas.
