Shampooing mistakes to avoid

Are you ready to unlearn everything you thought you knew about shampooing? If so, let’s get started. It’s time to ditch the myth that washing your hair is all about getting those locks squeaky clean.

In reality, the key to healthy hair starts at the scalp. According to experts, you should be focusing your shampooing efforts on your scalp, not your hair. Why? Because your scalp is where all the sebum (a natural oil produced by the skin) and dirt accumulates. By focusing on your scalp, you can ensure that your hair is clean and healthy from the roots up.

But how do you do it? Start by wetting your hair thoroughly, then apply shampoo directly to your scalp. Massage your scalp gently using your fingertips, focusing on the hairline and the nape of your neck. This will help to loosen any dirt and buildup. Then, rinse thoroughly with warm water.

And don’t worry, you’re not missing out on anything by skipping the hair. As the water and shampoo run down your hair, it will get cleaned naturally. Plus, by focusing on your scalp, you’ll be taking care of your hair follicles and promoting healthy hair growth.

Now, you might be thinking, “But won’t this dry out my hair?” The good news is that if you’re using a quality shampoo, it will be designed to cleanse your scalp without stripping away essential oils from your hair. This is why, we have only used high-quality plant based ingredients to make our shampoo bars. They are mild on the scalp and hair while being effective at the same time.
