Our hair says a lot about us; it also reflects our health. Which is why it needs to be showered with some extra TLC, shared Pooja Nagdev, aromatherapist, cosmetologist and founder, Inatur. So say goodbye to dull and damaged locks by following these easy tips every time you wash your hair.
Washing your hair helps remove dirt and sebum from the scalp. But after you wash them, they usually become dry, rough and dehydrated. Hence, it is important to use a mild, sulphate-free shampoo that won’t dry the hair and scalp.
It’s not advisable to use a hair drier after every wash. Rather, gently pat your wet hair with a towel and loosely wrap it around your head, keeping it on for several minutes to remove excess water.
Then run a wide-tooth comb through your wet hair to remove tangles. Start combing your hair from the ends working your way up to the top.
