A special event means a pimple appearing magically hours before it and hair that has been washed but decided to look greasy the moment you dress up for it. While there is nothing you can do about the pimple, there is a lot you can do about those greasy hair. In this blog, we will tell you how to wash your hair the right way, so that it doesn't look unhealthy or oily and can be styled easily.

You May Be Washing Your Hair Wrong!

Your hair is daily exposed to dust, sweat, pollution, and product buildup. When you do not wash your hair properly, the accumulation of these, along with dead cells and bacteria, leads to dandruff, itchiness, and hair damage.

But don’t worry...

Don't Do This When You Wash Your Hair!

It may sound like news to you, but there are things you should avoid while washing your hair. Here's a list:

  1. Don't Use Hot Water: We know hot water can relieve your stress and feel soothing. But it can wreak havoc on your skin. It strips your hair of its natural oil, making it dry,dull, and lifeless.
  2. Don't Overwash: You might think overwashing will help remove all the accumulation from your scalp, leading to clean, healthy hair. But, sorry to burst your bubble, while it might remove all the accumulation, it also removes the scalp's natural oils, leading to dry and damaged hair.
  3. Don't forget to rinse thoroughly: Always make sure to properly rinse your hair, as leftover products like shampoo or conditioner can make them look lifeless.
  4. No Vigorous Scrubbing: Avoid scrubbing your scalp vigorously, as it can cause frizzy hair and breakage.
  5. Don't Use Too Much Product: If you think the more the product, the better, you are highly mistaken. Too much product can lead to buildup, resulting in greasy hair.
  6. Conditioner is important: It’s been a fact by now that skipping conditioner is a no-no. It detangle your locks and make them look smooth and shiny.
  7. Don't Rub Your Hair: Always pat your hair gently, instead of rubbing it vigorously, as it may cause breakage and split ends..

Now you know what not to do, so let’s focus on what to do:
