Do you not know how to wash your hair?
Have you wondered for years if you’re doing it right but always been too embarrassed to ask?
Is your hair dirty?
Have you been washing your hair wrong your entire life?
Are you suffering at work or in private relationships due to your less-than-clean hair?
Are you washing your hair wrong?
If you answered “Yes” to any of the questions above, it’s time to set things straight once and for all. Here’s a foolproof step-by-step guide to washing your hair.
1. Completely soak your hair.
Do this by entering the shower in whatever amount of clothing you feel comfortable in and turning on the water. Get your hair completely wet. Use a moderately warm water temperature so as not to burn and damage your scalp.
2. Squirt shampoo into hand and massage into scalp and hair.
Use about a quarter’s worth of shampoo (more for longer hair). Be sure to lather all of your hair.
3. Rinse hair completely.
Rinse until all of the bubbles from the shampoo are gone. (You’re at the halfway mark, don’t stop now!)
4. Squirt conditioner into hand and run it through your hair.
Again, use about a quarter’s worth, and more if your hair is naturally dry. Avoid getting too much conditioner on scalp, as this could lead to greasy roots. Instead, make sure that the conditioner reaches the middle and tips of your hair. Leave conditioner on for about one minute (about enough time to sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star twice).
5. Rinse hair completely.
This time, end with a cool rinse. This will help keep your hair shiny and smooth.
Go get ’em, tiger.
