Common Hair Care Mistakes - And How To Avoid Them

Hello everyone! I hope you are all well. Welcome back after this great weekend to my beauty and personal care blog. I bet everybody knows how this is done. Washing your hair. You just put on some shampoo, distribute it evenly, rinse it and you are done. But there is actually much more to this. Washing your hair properly is a real beauty basic and there are a lot of things you need to pay attention to. So here are the most common hair care mistakes - and how to avoid them. With these tips and tricks your hair will look healthier, shinier and gain more volume.

Mistake No. 1: Simply wash it

If you have long hair, you are probably familiar with this. After you have finished washing your hair, the real battle begins to get it back strait. Your hair versus your hair brush. But there is an easy and simple way to avoid it. Firstly, you should untangle your hair before you wash it. And secondly, take care of it in advance. Beforehand, you should use some hair oil. Just add a small amount of it to the tips and strands and then spread it with a natural boar bristle brush.

Hair Brush

If you don't own one, cheap and good quality hair brushes can be purchased off the great for sales website The oil should be applied for at least ten minutes, or, even better, over night.

Mistake No. 2: Only taking care about the strands and tips

Strictly speaking, washing your hair is not about cleaning the actual strands, it is about cleaning the scalp and hair line. Here you should invest most of the time and effort. In total about five minutes for shampooing. Firstly, rub a fair amount of shampoo, about the size of a walnut is fine, in-between your hands. Then apply it to your head and gently move your fingers in a circular motion around your entire scalp.

Mistake No. 3: Rinsing to fast

After shampooing, the hair should be rinsed thoroughly and not too hot. Lukewarm water is completely enough. It is particularly important that no residues remain in the hair or on the scalp. This would only cause complains or irritations. When the shampoo is rinsed properly, the hair will make a squeaky sound if you rub it with your fingers. If you want to make you hair shine nicely afterwards, you can finally add a splash of cold water - as cold as it is still comfortable for you.

Rinse Your Hair

If you like to go a bit further you can apply additional hair conditioner or other care products. There are great bargains for hair care sets available on the amazing website for classified adds
