Do you think you know how to dry your hair properly?
It’s true that it seems simple since we’ve been doing it since we were little…
We take a towel and we rub hard in all directions! And yet, we often make a mistake that damages our hair every time we dry it.
What is this mistake that breaks hair and increases hair loss?
We rub too hard and too long!
Here’s why you need to stop this as soon as possible if you care about your hair.
Why should you avoid blow-drying your hair vigorously?
When our hair is wet, it’s very vulnerable. Why is that?
The explanation is simple and you’ll soon understand: After washing, the hair fiber is subjected to an unusual weight: the weight of water!
Because of this water, the hair scales are no longer effective in protecting the hair properly…
So how do you dry your hair safely?
Let’s see the right way together:
How to dry your hair well without damaging it?
First of all, it is a good thing not to leave your hair wet for too long.
But that’s no reason to go too hard and too fast!
In fact, it’s very important to dry your hair gently.
How do you do this? Simply with a towel, but without rubbing like crazy.
To do this, limit friction and avoid the hairdryer at all costs! Don’t see how to do it?
Let me explain in detail:
The best way is to go about it by gently and gently dabbing your hair with the towel.
Start with the ends first, and work your way up to the scalp to remove as much water as possible with each stroke.
As you can see, you should also avoid wrapping a towel around your hair…
Why? By doing so, you contribute to twisting and breaking your hair.
If you’re really in a hurry, you can use the hairdryer, but only on one condition!
First, choose the minimum temperature and then very slowly increase the heat to gradually remove the moisture from the hair.
Now you know the right way to dry your hair without letting it fall out with each blow-dry.
Another mistake we all make with our hair…
Another mistake we all make when we wash our hair is not wetting it enough.
To go faster or out of laziness, people often do not wet their hair enough before cleaning it.
But the secret of well-cared-for hair is simple:
You should wet your hair at least 30 seconds before shampooing.
This helps rid your hair of any pollution or dust build-up while allowing the shampoo to penetrate the fiber more deeply.
By doing this, you multiply the effectiveness of your shampoo, while avoiding another common pitfall: shampoo residue.
Because when you don’t wet your hair enough, the shampoo can’t dilute properly.
As a result, it leaves a lot of residues, which also tends to damage it in the long run.
