May 1, 2020

Covid-19 is affecting everyone’s life. Social Distancing, isolation, and quarantine are the ways to protect yourself from this deadly pandemic. So, in this situation, like every business, Hair Salons are also closed for the safety of their employees and the clients. And, you know you cannot go to your favorite Hair Salon for your hair treatment, If you are taking care of your hair at home by some professional techniques, then you do not need to worry.  

Almost everyone thinks he/she knows how to wash hair. After all, they have been doing it their whole life, and it is pretty straightforward. But, are you really following the right techniques, and is your in-shower technique helping you reach your full hair potential, or is it actually hindering you? By following these simple steps, you can wash your hair at home like a pro during quarantine:

Message With Oil

Warm-up little oil.  Now, section your hair with fingers and then take some oil and in circular motions, work it into the roots of the head. Massage in a consistent pattern and try to cover the entire scalp. When you are done with the whole scalp, then start using the oil on the length of your hair. 

Rinse Your Hair

Start by rinsing your hair with warm water. Warm water will open the cuticle, which is useful for removing any dirt or product trapped in the hair. Once your hair is rinsed in warm water, it loosens the oils throughout the scalp and opens up the cuticle, so it is able to absorb the oil 

Long Hair Then Condition First

If you have long hair, then condition firsts. Yes, if you have hair that goes beneath your shoulders, protect fragile ends from drying out and experiencing further damage. Apply a small amount of conditioner through the ends of your hair and lightly rinse before you shampoo. 

Lather Up But At The Scalp

You only need to shampoo the hair at the scalp, particularly at the nape; 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 the driest, most fragile part of the hair 

Be Gentle

Friction can permanently damage your hair’s cuticle leading to breakage and frizz. Think about washing your hair like you would wash your delicate areas.

Do Not Rinse And Repeat 

Despite what the instructions may say on the back of your shampoo bottle, there is no need to wash your hair twice.

Cold Water Rinse 

Finish with a cold water rinse. Cold water will shut the cuticle tight, sealing the outer layer, and holding moisture in.  I hope you found these tips to be very helpful, and by following these simple steps, you can have healthy hair as long as you can.
