Step 2. – Putting on the shampoo. Often most people go about this part all wrong. The usual thing is that they squeeze a big dollop of shampoo onto their hand, slap this on their hair then start scrubbing away thinking they are washing well. This is a big no-no.

Step 3. – The correct way to wash your hair. There are two common mistakes that people often make when they wash their hair: 1). Over-vigorous scrubbing/massaging 2). Rinsing too quickly. After applying the shampoo to your hair, the correct way to wash your hair is to massage your hair and scalp very gently. Scrubbing your hair and scalp does not make your hair any cleaner. After massaging your hair gently for a short while, you can leave shampoo in for up to 5 minutes to get a really good clean.
Step 4. – Rinse and Repeat. After you have given your hair a proper shampooing, you need to get al the grime, dirt and shampoo lather out of your locks. It’s important that when you rinse your hair, your rinse it properly. There can still be plenty of shampoo left in your hair, even after you think you have rinsed it out.
