D] Tips to Reduce Hair Fall While Shampooing
It’s time to learn how to tackle the issue of hair fall while shampooing, effectively. Read on to know all about it.
1) Avoid Brushing Wet Hair in the Shower
Your hair is in its weakest and most fragile form when it is wet. So, if you think it's okay to brush wet hair right before you apply your shampoo, we suggest you stop this practice, as it can severely damage your hair. This is one of the major causes of hair fall
during hair wash. Apart from that, it can also lead to another frightening issue - breakage.
2) Never Skip the Conditioner
Some of us may think that using a conditioner is not always necessary. However, it is quite the contrary.
Without a conditioner, your hair becomes tangled, dry, and prone to hair fall. To beat it all, you need a good conditioner, that can make your hair stronger, reduce breakage, and most importantly, reduce hair fall during hair wash.
3) Don't Use Hot Water for Washing Your Hair
We know how much you love spending time in a hot shower, but do you know that it can have adverse effects on your hair? The hot water washes the scalp oil off your head and opens the pores, making your hair frail and causing hair loss.
So, the best way is to use lukewarm water and then wash it off with cold water.
4) Using a Pre-shampoo Deep Conditioner
Let us guess, most of you use the conditioner after shampooing, right? Well, there is no harm in doing that. However, it is advisable to use a pre-shampoo deep conditioner before going ahead with shampoo to help you detangle your hair easily and give it more protection.
