You may think that washing your hair is not something you should pay too much attention to, but shampooing and washing your hair requires proper care and attention.

This is good to know how to wash your hair properly:

1. Shampoo is only for cleaning the scalp, not for strands of hair

The shampoo is intended exclusively for the scalp. While shampooing your hair, gently massage the top of your head for a minute to two and then rinse your hair well. Too much sebum on the scalp can also be the result of poor rinsing, so pay special attention to this.

Remember that for even distribution and better foaming, the hair must be completely wet.

If your hair is very dirty or greasy, then after applying the shampoo to the scalp, lather it in your hands and run it through the length of your hair. There is no need to shampoo your hair twice or use too many products.

Excessive shampooing removes natural oils from our scalp which causes dry scalp, dandruff, and scalp irritation.

2. Shampoo should be used in small amounts and should be diluted with water

Failure to do so may cause dryness of the hair. Applying too much shampoo can damage your hair. No matter how long your hair is, a scoop about the size of a coin is generally perfect for everyone.

3. The use of shampoo varies from person to person

Most of us apply shampoo once or twice a week. But depending on the texture of the hair and the nature of the scalp, some may need shampooing every day, so in that case, it is necessary to use mild shampoos.

Some of us need to wash our hair every day, which is not really recommended because we can enter the vicious circle of excessive oiling precisely because we constantly remove the protective layer from the scalp and take away its moisture. 

4. There is no best shampoo

What works for someone else may not work for you. Everyone's hair is different. You need to find a shampoo that suits your hair according to its nature. Some may have a dry scalp and some greasy, so choosing the right shampoo will do wonders.

5. Tying wet hair with a towel breaks your hair

Tying your hair with a towel can cause damage and breakage. One of the best ways to dry your hair is to use a cotton towel or cotton T-shirt; its soft texture will not cause any damage to your hair, writes the Indian Express.
