I’ve Been Washing My Hair Wrong My Entire Life, And This Is How You Should Actually Do It

Hair can be beautiful at one time and messy the next. We all want our hair to be soft and soothing when moving our fingers through it. But, dealing with dandruff or dry hair, it can be very frustrating.


Hair become soft and dazzling after washing it with a shampoo, but the effect does not last forever. Washing your hair properly is important because it keeps hair healthy and lovely for a longer period.

1st mistake


Wash your hair whenever you want it to be washed. It can be done once in a week in winters and every day during summers. It’s your choice.

2nd mistake

If you shower every day, skip the shampoo once in a while because your scalp can become dry.

3rd mistake

Gently move your fingers through the hair instead scrubbing it in order to prevent breakage and damage.

4th mistake

Your hair does not like hot showers because the hotness dries the skin and scalp. Wash your hair with lukewarm water or cold water.

5th mistake

Try using only 1 shampoo and not change them regularly because it is easier on your hair.

6th mistake

A coin size of your shampoo would be enough. Pouring too much shampoo will wash out all the products.

7th mistake

Hair is fragile when wet, so don’t rub it with a towel, but pat it dry gently.

8th mistake

Brushing your hair when wet can cause its breakage. Shampoo gently and don’t brush it.

9th mistake

Don’t shampoo your scalp down always. Begin with the nape of your neck once in a while.

10th mistake

Before applying shampoo, make sure your hair is completely soaked.

11th mistake

Shampoo your roots and condition your ends.
