Life is not perfect and we have made our peace with imperfections. But, your hair can be.
Who doesn’t enjoy a good hair wash? Standing under the hot/cold shower and washing your hair will definitely feel awesome, but if you are not doing it right, you might be hurting your beautiful tresses.
For both women and men, a good hair wash is not only about cleansing your hair, but it is a great way to feel content and relaxed. It is not an exaggeration to say that it is almost therapeutic. For hair that feels silky, strong and clean, try these hair washing tips.
- Start with oiling
Oil your hair before washing it is an age-old advice being passed down from generations. You must have heard your mother or grandmother giving you the same advice. We strongly recommend that you should not underestimate what they say. This is actually a tried and tested method. Massage KMP Ayurvedic Amla Hair Oil into your hair about two or three hours before washing it.
Irrespective of what shampoo you use for your hair, the incidence of losing essential oils is high. Indian Ayurvedic hair oil help to balance this out and keep hair moisturized, untangled and strong. You can try KMP Ayurvedic Jasmine Hair Oil or KMP Coconut Oil too.
- Brush your hair
Brushing helps to open up the pores and enhance blood circulation. But, that is not all. It reduces the buildup of oil so that your hair does not look greasy even though you have used new Ayurvedic hair oil to moisturize and soften your hair. Also, by applying Amla or coconut oil for natural hair, you will make it easier for your comb or brush to pass through hair and brush out all the tangles before taking a shower. Do not skip this step because wet hair is very fragile and a lot of women and men suffer hair breakage and hair loss because they comb wet hair.
- Rinse hair before shampooing
Before you start shampooing your hair, it needs to be prepped. For that, give your hair a thorough rinse. You can use warm water for this. However, do not use hot water as that can make your hair extremely dry. Warm water helps the pores on the scalp to open, loosen the oily buildup or accumulated dirt and help in the better absorption of the KMP Ayurvedic cool oil that you have massaged into it.
- Gently shampoo your hair (actually, the roots)
Just shampooing your hair is not enough. You need to shampoo it the right way. First, take the right amount of shampoo. If your hair is above the shoulder, a coin-sized amount will do just fine. But, double that amount if your hair extends past your shoulders. After that, massage the shampoo very gently into your roots. Avoid very tight circular motions as that can weaken your hair. Remember to wash the hair at the nape. Do not scrub your hair as it does not clean out the dirt, but only end up breaking a few along the way. So, just stick to gentle massaging.
- Squeeze out the excess water and dry your hair
No, we do not mean roughly squeeze it out. Be very gentle. If you have short hair, you can give your hair a gentle shake and use your fingers to get rid of excess hair. But, for longer hair, you need to gently squeeze it out from the midsection of the hair. You can use a leave-in conditioner once your hair has dried a bit. But, applying Ayurvedic Amla hair oil before shampooing already softens and moisturizes the hair and so, you might not need to apply chemical-infused conditioners.
So, now you know the steps to wash your hair, but you must also be careful to select the right shampoo. Today, the market is filled with shampoos that contain so much of chemicals. If you have dry hair, you must use delicate shampoos.
As you all know, hair is one of the best assets of women and even men. Receding hairline, baldness and thinning are some of the hair problems that are making it impossible for us to try out the different hairstyles. But, you can maintain the quality of your hair, make it stronger and prevent hair breakages by simply washing your hair properly and not being too harsh on it. Remember to use Ayurvedic hair oil products as they are made from natural ingredients and do not have any chemicals that might harm your hair. You can even warm up coconut hair oil to apply it overnight if you are planning to shampoo the next day.
Your hair is what makes your selfies stand out from the crowd. So, follow the steps and give your hair a new lease of life.
