Steam your hair first
You need to take care of your scalp as it will have clogged dirt in it. So the best way to cleanse it is by steaming your hair. Soak a towel in hot water and take out the excess water. Now, wrap this towel around your hair for a while.
Once the steaming is done, you need to gently massage your scalp with it. This will help you loosen your hair strands and also remove all the dirt. This will also strengthen your weak hair strands.
Use cool water
Heating products are anyway not good for hair and just like that, even hot water will cause hair damage. The heat from it can strip the natural oil from your hair, leaving the cuticles open. But cool water can close it and lock the moisture as well thus giving you shiner hair and it can also cut down the frizz.
Use paraben free shampoo
You might have heard this so the next time you buy a shampoo check for ingredients first. Your shampoo needs to be free from sulfates and also parabens. Both these chemicals are harmful for your hair and can lead to allergic reactions as well. So it is advised that you opt for organic shampoos.
Brush your hair
We all have a tendency to head for shower immediately, but it’s a wrong practice in real. Tangled hair can cause problems while shampooing. Start from the bottom and then go upwards. You should also comb your hair gently post shower.
Shampoo for the scalp
Shampoos are designed so you can cleanse out all the dust and also get rid of dead skin cells. Rubbing the shampoo the wrong way will strip off the natural oils from your hair. Your hair will start looking dull and also lifeless if not taken care properly. Lather well only for the roots and scalp now on.
Don’t wash your hair everyday
As shampoos are known to have chemicals in them, it is advised that you steer clear of practicing this habit everyday. Wash them only twice or thrice a week to keep them healthy.
You need to oil your hair before your shower time. Oils like coconut oil or olive oil are very helpful to do so. Let the oil penetrate in your hair and you need to nourish them later to have shinier and soft hair.
Say no to too much conditioner
Applying a lot of conditioner will damage your hair texture and also make them greasy and oily on top. Also, do not use conditioners directly on the scalp as they can clog your pores and also reduce your hair growth. This will eventually increase hair fall as well.
Don’t leave it on for too long
Don’t tale extra time as conditioners work on hair very quickly. If you thought keeping them for long means extra moisture for hair, you are wrong then. It can leave your hair greasy and also it won’t penetrate beyond a certain limit.
Many women have a habit of rubbing their hair roughly with towels, but doing so will deteriorate your hair texture. You need to use a cotton tee to do so or a towel that’s made of microfiber. Now, gently dry your hair with it and remove the excess water from it.
A bottle of smoothening serum post showers are the best way to keep your hair dirt and tangle free. Just apply some of it on your strands below. Make sure the product you use is alcohol free so you can enjoy its benefits.
