By: Candice Hubbard

Washing hair is one way of hair care. Basically, itís a habit for us to take a bath. We can avoid getting hair problems if we live healthy. Beautiful hair boosts your self confidence. Most of us really value their hair. We really spend on products in order to have a healthy hair.

Ready your necessities

Get your shampoo and conditioner. You will also need comb and of course your towels. Prepare some warm water too.

Comb your hair

Comb your hair before entering the bathroom. This will avoid tangling hairs when taking a bath. Using wide-teeth combs avoid hair breakage than thin ones. Avoid using a brush, it tangles your hair more and results to more hair breakage.


Soak your hair in warm water. You should damp your hair for at least 30 seconds.

Put shampoo

Get your shampoo and put a small amount in your palm. The amount of shampoo will depend on the length of your hair. The longer hair you have, the higher amount of shampoo you need.


Massage the shampoo to your scalp using your fingertips. Do this for at least 2 minutes. This will remove embedded dirt deep below your hair. This will also help remove dandruffs.


Get warm water and gently rinse your hair. Remove all shampoo from your head and hair. Make sure to rinse all soap before applying conditioner.

Put conditioner

Now itís time to condition your hair. Put the right amount of conditioner onto your palm. Make sure that it can cover all parts of your hair. Start putting conditioner into your nape. Spread it till your hair tips using your fingers. You can also start again from the part of your forehead. Gently apply it till you have reached the tip of your hair.


Let the conditioner stay for at least 3 minutes. Just comb your hair to spread it evenly while waiting. You also try massaging your scalp while waiting. This will help your hair absorb more nutrients.

Rinsing again

Rinse your with warm water. Wash it till the conditioner is gone. This will help remove excess oil out of your hair. Be sure to thoroughly rinse your hair.

Use cold water

After rinsing the conditioner with warm water, use cold water for the final wash. Cold water tightens the pores on your scalp. It tightens the scalpís hold on your hair bulb and prevents it from hair fall. It also produces less frizz and more shine. Warm water does the opposite. It loosens pores and results to more hair fall.

Washing your hair properly reduces the risk of getting your hair damage. It also promotes hair growth and health. Wash your hair on a regular basis but not necessarily daily. Let the natural oil on your scalp help in protecting your hair. Washing your hair everyday will remove all natural oil out of your hair. Be sure to wash only for 2-3 times a week.
