Hair Wash – How To Do It Right

  • Comb your hair before washing. For example, you can remove hairspray residues in advance.
  • Use a hair shampoo that is tailored to your hair type. Also make sure that the pH of the shampoo corresponds to that of the skin, i.e. around 5.5.
  • Moisten the hair with lukewarm water and massage a small portion of shampoo into the scalp with circular movements. Then rinse the hair thoroughly. Avoid large amounts of shampoo and excessively hot water. Shampooing once is sufficient for normal hair care.
  • Colored shampoos are often used for colored or bleached hair so that the color does not change – but they usually do not protect against fading.
  • After washing the hair, press out the hair with both hands and wrap it in a towel. Don’t rub your hair dry. It is best to air dry your hair. If possible, use a coarse-toothed comb for combing.
  • If you blow dry, you should only use moderately warm air. Blow drying too hot and too long dries out the hair and changes the hair structure. Always keep the hair dryer at least 15 centimeters away from your head.
