Updated: Oct 19, 2020

To some, washing their hair after a long day out is a mundane chore when they just couldn’t wait to get into their bed. Whereas for some, jumping into a hot shower and getting a hair wash is like a therapy for them to destress. Regardless, washing the hair is something that all of us do almost every day and it’s vapid to talk about it or to even think that there are right and wrong ways of doing it. As the saying goes, hair is your crowning glory.

Read on to learn how to wash your hair the right way to maintain this glorious crown that you never take off.

1. Detangle before shower

Detangling your hair before wetting it can help to ease the knots. Avoid detangling your hair while its wet as it is at its most fragile and most prone to breakage. If you really have to detangle in the shower, gently section your hair into large parts with your fingers.

2. Rinse with lukewarm water before shower

Rinse your hair with lukewarm water for about 30 seconds before moving onto the shampoo. This helps to rinse off residues like styling gel or particles stuck in your hair. Using lukewarm water helps to gently open up the pores of the scalp and hair shaft for better absorption. (Tips: Never wash your hair with water that are too hot as that can dry out your hair, making it frizzy)
