9) You need to lather, rinse, and repeat in order to really clean your hair
When it comes to washing hair, the saying “You can never have too much of a good thing,” sadly does not apply. “In general, people seem to wash their hair too often. Only double shampoo your hair if it’s really dirty or oily,” suggests Jukka. “If your hair and scalp is dry, try washing it with flat hands to keep in some of its natural oils.”
10) You should comb your hair from top to bottom
Although, many hair commercials feature models brushing from the root downward, this brushing method, particularly if the hair is wet, can cause breakage. “Start brushing from the ends working your way up,” suggests Jukka. “This will prevent breakage and damage to the hair shaft, especially if the hair is wet.” A brush designed to be used on wet or dry hair will be easier on your strands and remove tangles or knots without causing further breakage, splitting or damage.
