Washing your hair seems simple enough. You apply the shampoo, lather and rinse – how hard can it be? While the process might seem pretty straightforward, there are some minor things that most of overlook and they could turn into major problems for your hair. So if you’re wondering why your hair isn’t growing longer, why you’re suffering from hair loss or why you’re getting so many split-ends, there could be something wrong with your hair washing routine.
Using the Wrong Products!
Every one of us has a unique hair type. Some of us have thin, fine hair while others might have thick lustrous locks of hair. Shampoo and conditioning products are all uniquely designed to suit a certain type of hair. Consult with an expert at Albany Aveda hair salons to find out exactly which product will suit your hair type.
Your Technique is Messed Up
There shouldn’t really be a set technique for putting on shampoo and conditioner, right? Well, that’s not how it works. There are, in fact, some considerations that you have to remember when putting on these products.
Shampoo your hair from the roots first and move to the tips. The roots are the dirtiest, oiliest parts of the scalp that need to be thoroughly washed. As for conditioners, use your conditioning product at the tips first and if you have thin hair, you should avoid conditioning the roots of your hair because that could make your hair look greasy really fast.
Your Schedule isn’t Right
If you wash your hair every single day, that’s a problem. No matter what your hair type is, washing your hair every day will cause damage to all kinds of hair. If you want to keep your mane fresh, healthy and split-ends free, stop stripping your scalp of its natural oils by washing it every day. Schedule your hair wash routines for every other day or 2-3 times per week.
You’re Not Using Masks
Haven’t used and oil or a chemical mask for your hair yet? You’re probably starving your hair! Sure, putting on a mask and then washing it needs time and commitment. But if you can make an effort to add it in your hair routine, you’ll see a major difference in the quality of your hair once you wash the mask out!
