How do I wash my hair properly?
Washing your hair is actually not your primary concern when washing your hair. This is because the focus should be on washing, or cleansing, your scalp and allowing the shampoo suds to cleanse the hair as you massage the scalp (not the hair) and then rinse.
Thus, apply the shampoo to your hair/scalp; lather and massage your scalp using your fingertips (avoid using your nails); rinse scalp and hair with warm (not hot) water. Repeat once or twice and then follow with a conditioner appropriate for your hair needs.
