If I were ever to become rich and famous, the first thing I would do is hire someone to wash and style my hair every day. Because although washing your own hair isn't a particularly taxing event, it is an ultra-luxurious experience to have someone else take the reigns. It’s relaxing to have someone massage your scalp into a cleaner state, and not to mention it prevents you from committing some major hair washing mistakes.
Although I only get to experience this luxury every six weeks when I go to get my hair done, I spoke to Max Tyler of Antonino's Salon to see how I could take better care of my hair in the meantime. "Washing your hair isn't as simple as you think," Tyler says. He admits that stylists see the negative effects of poor washing techniques when clients sit down in their chair. "Dandruff, product build-up, dry scalp, brittle strands, we see it all. Not every hair emergency can be solved by washing your hair the right way, but a lot of them can be prevented if you do your part."
From the way you wash to picking the right product, below are nine hair washing mistakes you probably didn’t even know you were making.
