A Quick Guide to Washing Your Hair The Right Way

A good hair day can leave you feeling like you can conquer the world. But did you know that the secret to having healthy and luscious locks starts with washing your hair correctly? Whether you have fine hair or thick curls, washing your hair correctly can help you achieve that perfect hair day every day. In this article, we will be diving into the best way to wash your hair and sharing some tips and tricks - and yes, there is indeed a "best" way to wash your hair!

First and foremost, always brush your hair before washing it. This will ensure that your hair doesn't get tangled up while washing. Start by rinsing your hair with lukewarm water, which will help to open up the hair cuticles and remove any dirt or product buildup. Avoid using hot water, as it can strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving it dry and brittle.

Next, apply a quarter-sized amount of shampoo to your hair and massage it into your scalp. Remember, the shampoo is meant to cleanse your scalp and not your hair. So, avoid applying shampoo to your hair's ends as it can strip your hair of its natural oils. Rinse your hair thoroughly, and if necessary, repeat the shampooing process. And make sure you choose a shampoo tailored to your particular hair type and condition.

After shampooing, it's time to condition your hair. Apply a dime-sized amount of conditioner to the ends of your hair and avoid applying it to your scalp. Let the conditioner sit for a few minutes, allowing it to penetrate your hair's strands. Rinse your hair thoroughly with cool water, which will help to close the hair cuticles, locking in the moisture.

Towel-drying your hair may seem like a quick way out, but did you know it can cause frizz and breakage? Instead, opt for a microfiber towel or an old t-shirt, as these will help to absorb the excess water without damaging your hair. Once you've removed the excess water, it's time to let your hair air dry. If you're in a hurry, use a hairdryer on the cool setting. Once dry, move on to your favorite EDRÉE styling tool.

Lastly, avoid washing your hair daily as it can strip it of its natural oils, leaving it dry and brittle. Instead, aim to wash your hair every two to three days. If you have oily hair, use dry shampoo between washes to absorb any excess oil.

Washing your hair the right way is crucial to maintaining healthy and luscious locks. Remember, always brush your hair before washing it, use lukewarm water to rinse your hair, shampoo your scalp, condition your hair's ends, avoid towel drying, and limit hair washes. Incorporate these tips and tricks into your hair care routine, and say hello to flawless hair days every day.
