Why Your Shampoo is Ruining your Hair and How to Fix It

Categories : Hair

Haircare is such a overlooked part of the daily grooming routine. However, washing your hair up to twice a day is essential in Singapore’s hot weather. Choosing the best shampoo that works for your hair type is not just what smells nice, it is vital to ensure that your roots are kept healthy and hair retains its volume. Beauty Insider gives you the lowdown on all your hair shampoo questions!

What’s in That Bottle?


Are you appalled by your daily hair drop count? The solution lies in your shampoo bottle! Look out for ingredients such as SLS, Parabens, Phenoxyethanol, Polysorbates and the three absolute no-nos; DEA, MEA and TEA. Colour pigments or artificial fragrances can also lead to scalp sensitive or attribute to a drying scalp! So take a close look at that label before you buy anything!

What Temperature is That Water?


Turning off the hot water knob can feel heart stopping, especially first thing in the morning. Unfortunately hot water is terrible for your hair! Hot water opens the pores, stripping your scalp of its natural oils. These oils is what helps strengthen hair and prevent it from falling. Instead, shampoo hair with lukewarm water and then rinse off the shampoo with colder water.

Massage that Scalp!


While shampooing, make sure you get into the roots of your hair! A good hair massage can promote hair growth and stimulate hair follicles! When you visit a hair salon, they are not just trying to relax you with that head massage, it is scientifically proven that reducing stress and massaging the scalp everyday can lead to fuller, thicker hair!

When are You Washing Your Hair?


We know after getting home after a long work day a good sleep is all you want! However, going to bed without washing the day off your hair can be disastrous int he long run! Much like our skin, the pores in the scalp repairs itself at night. Without washing the free radicals and dirt off your hair, hair can retain pollutants for longer thus damaging your hair in the long run!
