The Most Common Mistakes People Make When Shampooing Their Hair



Shampoo is designed to be used on wet hair. You lather it into your hair, allowing it to cleanse your scalp and help improve the health of your hair. Much of this is achieved by removing excess oil build-up on your scalp.

In essence, it is simple which is why many people don’t realize they are making one of these common mistakes.

The Wrong Product

There are hundreds of different hair products on the market. That means it is very easy to pick up the one that looks good, your favourite celebrity recommends, or simply the cheapest. However, it is important to note that everyone is different. You need to choose a natural product that will help your hair look and feel its best at all times. A great place to start is by looking at the Muk range, it’s natural and there really is something for everyone.

The right product ensures excess oil is removed from oily hair or that your hair is properly hydrated if you have brittle hair. Using the wrong product is a common mistake that is easy to rectify.

Not getting Your hair Wet Enough

If you’re shampooing your hair then you need to make sure every strand of your hair is soaking wet. This allows maximum penetration for your chosen product and will help to ensure your hair is as healthy as it looks.

Make sure you soak it for at least a minute in the shower before applying any product.

Using Too Much

When it comes to shampoo, less is definitely more. The exact amount of shampoo you use depends on the length of your hair. But, as an average, people with short hair should use a squirt of shampoo the size of a nickel in your hand. In contrast, if you have long hair, opt for roughly half-a-dollars worth in your hand.

If you don’t use enough your hair won’t be clean but if you use too much you’re just wasting money.

Failing To Rinse

If you don’t rinse all the shampoo out of your hair then you are creating debris that is likely to give you an itchy scalp and damage the look of your hair.

It can be tempting to rush when running late but it takes 15-30 seconds to rinse effectively, it’s worth taking the time to do it properly.

Failing To Massage the Scalp

It’s understandable, you have bought shampoo which is for washing your hair. However, when you’re washing your hair the most important part is actually the scalp. This is where debris and oils build up and are the items you want to remove to promote hair health.

Massaging your scalp not only feels good and helps hair health, but it also increases blood flow to your scalp, this ensures all the nutrients your hair needs are supplied.

Failing To Condition

Conditioning is essential if you want to maintain hair health. You should condition regularly and deep condition at least once a week. The difference in your hair will be noticeable.
