Washing your hair can be such a satisfying process. Whether you’re doing it to scrub out product buildup, or performing more of a ritualistic cleanse (yes, you can theoretically scrub away a horrible day), there’s something about a good shampoo session that feels great. Except for one thing: you’re probably washing your hair wrong.
Sure it seems simple enough. Stand under streaming water, lather, rinse, skip the repeat, and you’re done, right?
Wrong. Oh so wrong. From using too much to scrubbing down too often, what you once thought was a mindless process may require a little extra effort and thought. Luckily not all is loss for your locks, as many of these errors are easily remedied. Invest in the right tools and take a few tips from Chelsey Pickthorn, owner and stylist of Brooklyn-based salon Pickthorn, and you’ll soon be shampooing your hair like a pro.
