Hair care can be a tricky and puzzling job at times. When your hair gets wet, it becomes difficult to manage them and hence handling it properly while washing can be a bit challenging. And what if you don’t get the desired results? All your hard work goes futile.
And especially when you have straight hair, things can be even more difficult. Because before you shampoo straight hair, wetting it will make it run freely which can be difficult to manage.
But worry not. We bring you a step by step guide on how to shampoo straight hairand get desired results.
3 Steps to Shampoo Straight Hair
Step 1: Wash your hair with plain water
The reason we suggest washing your hair with just plain water is to soften your hair and help it get rid of any pollutants and particulates that might not wash off when using the shampoo. But always remember to use cool water, because while hot or high-warm water will open up the hair cuticle, cold water will close it, thus helping it to retain its natural moisture which is beneficial to the hair in the long run.
Step 2: Massage the scalp and your hair root
Your hair needs some love before you submit it to the shampoo regimen. After washing your hair in cold water, just lower the water flow and gently massage your scalp and hair root. This helps in cleaning your hair from any particulate pollutants and also relaxes your hair for the next stage.
Step 3: Shampoo your hair
Take enough amount of shampoo (use your best judgment) and slowly apply it on your hair. (We recommend Giovanni shampoo for straight hair.) Make sure that it reaches every nook and corner of your hair. Spread and massage the shampoo not only on your scalp but also on your hair and then wash it away.
These three simple steps to shampoo straight hairwill do the job! However, always remember to choose a shampoo that suits your hair type. If you end up buying a hair shampoo for curly hair, it will damage your hair, since the shampoo will prove to be harsh for your soft straight hair.
Also, never shampoo your hair too often. Ideally, shampoo every other day, but never shampoo your hair daily, because that is going to damage your hair in the long run.
