Get into the habit of brushing your scalp before shampooing!
So far, I have talked about how, like skin care, which corrects the disturbance of turnover and restores the skin to a healthy state, regulating the disturbance of the hair cycle and the scalp environment prevents hair loss and leads to the maintenance of healthy hair.
What I want you to remember here is the basic “face wash” of skin care. This principle also applies to the scalp.
In the case of the face, the makeup is removed and the face is washed, but in the case of the scalp, it is ideal to perform two processes: brushing and shampooing. This is because if you brush your scalp before shampooing, the excess sebum and dirt in your pores will come to the surface and be removed cleanly.
If you use a brush with rounded bristles, the tip of the brush will hold the scalp, giving you a moderate amount of stimulation and improving blood circulation. Please take it in. At this time, if you brush your hair too much, you may damage the cuticle, so be careful! Think about loosening the tangled part of your hair.
The point of shampoo that also has the effect of odor care
By the way, you may think of shampoo as washing your hair, but that is not the case. Most of the dirt on your hair can be removed by simply rinsing it with lukewarm water before shampooing. Shampoo removes excess sebum and dirt from the scalp and pores. If you have been washing your hair until now, please wash your skin.
The oil clogged in the pores is also the cause of the smell of the hair. When you were young, you might have used shampoo in the morning and at night because of this smell. Ideally, you should wash your hair every day, but if you don’t mind, you can shampoo your hair once every two days.
Is foam important for shampoo? ! “Slide your fingers in a zigzag pattern” is the basic washing method
Well, I told you that it is important to wash your face with foam. This is because the fine foam easily penetrates deep into the pores and thoroughly removes dirt, and the same can be said for washing your hair. Lather up the shampoo with your hands, apply it to your scalp, and gently wash it with your fingertips.
When washing, lightly press the scalp with the pad of your finger and slide it in a zigzag direction toward the top of the head. At this time, be careful not to put too much force on your fingers and irritate your scalp with friction. It’s out of the question to put your nails up! It will hurt your scalp.
How to choose a shampoo is whether it suits your scalp
Should I Use Expensive Shampoos As I Age? I often receive the question. However, this answer is the same as cosmetics, what suits your skin is the best. Let’s choose the condition of the scalp at that time rather than the price.
Shampoos for people who are concerned about hair loss are divided into men’s and women’s shampoos. This is because, as I mentioned last time, the causes of hair loss are different for men and women. Many of them have mild cleansing ingredients that do not irritate the scalp too much, and are characterized by ingredients that prevent hair loss and promote hair growth.
By the way, my favorite is “Fluria”. It is a product born from Lion’s 30 years of hair growth research, so I use it with confidence. I wish it was a little more foamy, but it washes off smoothly and keeps my scalp in good condition, so I guess it suits my current scalp.
However, each person has a different scalp. Choose a product that suits your scalp condition and concerns, such as stickiness and dandruff. One of the important factors in choosing a shampoo is the difference in texture and scent after washing, such as one that increases the volume of the hair and one that suppresses the spread.
