Step 2. Effective ways to wash your hair
Massaging your hair before you wash it
Gently press your scalp with your first joint of each finger with both of your hands. There is no need to move your hands around, just pressing down is effective enough. Be careful not to scratch your skin with your nails. Your head may start becoming itchy, but this means that your blood circulation has improved, so don’t worry.
How to shampoo
When shampooing, use the soft area of your fingers as when you are massaging. You may feel that you have to strongly move your hair to get rid of the dirt inside, but by spreading the foam throughout your entire scalp, it will help get rid of excessive oil. By not scratching your hair and scalp, you can feel the difference when you dry your hair.
The correct order to wash your hair
First, massage the back of your head while creating foam. By creating foam from shampoo with your hands before applying it on your hair, you can avoid excessive pressure to your hair and scalp.
Next, massage the back of your ears with shampoo foam. If you run out of foam, add a little bit of shampoo.
After that, massage in the order of your neckline → top of the ears, top of your head, front of your head. Create foam and use the tip of your fingers.
When washing out the foam, collecting water with your hands you can rinse your scalp cleaner and more thoroughly.
For the second time, use half the amount or shampoo you used the first time. Like the first time, massage thoroughly and rinse well without leaving any foam.
Drying your hair
After rinsing the foam, take away the water in the hair by gently tapping it with a towel, and then use a hair dryer. Leave 15 to 20cm between the dryer and your hair, and don’t apply the dryer to the same area over two seconds. Letting the hot air hit your hands first is one way to not damage your hair. While doing that, by spreading your fingers and shaking your hair you will be able to take away excessive water quickly, and can prevent bacteria from growing, reducing scalp odor.
Step 3. Inner body care for your scalp, when you have time
Caring for your scalp from the inside of your body is very effective. By ingesting green and yellow vegetables and protein, your hair will grow in the proper cycle. Walking more that 20 minutes a day will improve blood circulation and help hair growth. And to keep your hormone balance well, it is important to sleep during 10PM and 2AM, and not eat before going to bed.
