Lavado De Pelo? Puede Que Lo Hayas Estado Haciendo Mal

Recibe las últimas novedades del mundo de la moda.

Nos lavamos el pelo practicamente todos los días, pero de verdad sabemos como lavarnos el pelo correctamente? Usando las técnicas correctas puedes hacer realmente la diferencia en la salud y brillo de tu pelo –pero si estas cometiendo algunos errores comunes, podrías estar dañando tu pelo sin siquiera saberlo.

1. Comienza con un enjuague.

Al igual que tu ropa necesita un enjuague antes de echarle el detergente, tu pelo debe estar bien mojado antes de añadir shampoo. El agua caliente va a abrir la cutícula, lo que es bueno para remover la suciedad o producto atrapado en el pelo. Otro bonus: Cuando tu pelo es enjuagado con agua tibia, suelta los aceites a través del cuero cabelludo y abre la cutícula para que sea capaz de absorver el aceite.

 

 

2. Si tienes el pelo largo, acondiciona primero.

Si en serio! Si tu pelo llega más abajo de tus hombros, protege las puntas frágiles de que se sequen y se dañen al pasar una pequeña cantidad de bálsamo a través de ellas y enjuaga suavemente antes de aplicar shampoo. Esto no sólo mantendrá las puntas sanas, si no que también rellenará cualquier agujero que haya en las cutículas con humectante, dejándolo suave e impulsando el brillo.

 

 

3. Espuma, pero sólo en el cuero cabelludo.

Sólo necesitas echarle shampoo al cabello sobre el cuero cabelludo, particularmente sobre la nuca. La mejor forma de enjabonar el pelo con shampoo es desde la raíz hasta las puntas. El cabello más cerca del cuero cabelludo es el más joven e inevitablemente será el más aceitoso, mientras las puntas son la parte más vieja, más frágil del pelo.

No uses más shampoo del que necesitas. Con una cantidad del tamaño de una moneda de $500 pesos es suficiente. Si tu cabello es particularmente largo o grueso, dobla la cantidad.

 

 

4. Sé gentil.

La fricción puede dañar permanentemente la cutícula de tu cabello, dejándolo quebradizo y con frizz. Lava tu pelo con delicadeza.

Empieza a enjabonar en las raíces. Aumenta la circulación de la sangre en el cuero cabelludo y estimula el crecimiento ejerciendo movimientos verticales con presión mediana. No uses movimientos circulares ya que pueden enredar tu pelo.

Luego, suaviza el enjabonado en las puntas con movimientos rectos. No refriegues las puntas frágiles o uses movimientos hacia adelante y atrás como si estuvieras refregando una alfombra.

 

 

5. No enjuagues y repitas.

A pesar de lo que dicen las instrucciones en tu botella de shampoo, no es necesario lavar tu pelo dos veces.  Evita separar el cabello lavándolo una sola vez con shampoo, que suele ser lo suficiente. A menos que tu pelo esté muy sucio y la primera pasada de shampoo no haya producido espuma, en cuyo caso, vuelve a lavarlo.

 

 

6. Aplica acondicionador desde la mitad de tu cabellera hasta las puntas.

Después de que te enjuagaste el shampoo, estruja tu pelo para sacar un poco de agua antes de aplicar el acondicionador. Luego tómate el pelo y termina de ducharte, dejando el enjuague del bálsamo para el final. Mientras más tiempo dejes el acondicionador en tu pelo, más se absorve. Pero no pongas acondicionador en las raíces de tu pelo; el aceite natural de tu cuero cabelludo está más concentrado ahí.

 

 

7. Termina con un enjuague de agua fría.

El agua fría cierra la cutícula bien apretada, sellando la capa externa, lo que hará que tu pelo brille al máximo, dice White.

You may do it practically every day, but do you really know how to wash your hair the right way? Using the correct techniques can make a world of difference in your hair’s health, bounce and shine — but if you’re making some common mistakes, you could be damaging your strands without even knowing it. 1. Start with a rinse. Just like your laundry needs a rinse cycle before you add detergent, hair should be thoroughly wet before you add your shampoo. “Hot water will open the cuticle, which is good for removing any dirt or product trapped in the hair,” says White. Another bonus: “When your hair is rinsed in warm water, it loosens the oils through the scalp and opens the cuticle so it is able to absorb the oil” in your conditioner, says Saviano. – See more at: http://the-ultimate-beauty-guide.blogspot.com/2014/02/how-to-wash-your-hair-properly.html#sthash.5q2699bE.dpuf

If you have long hair, condition first. Yes, really! “If you have hair beneath the shoulders, protect fragile ends from drying out and further damage by running a small amount of conditioner through them and lightly rinsing, before any shampooing. This will not only keep ends healthy, it will fill any holes in the cuticle with moisture, making it smoother and boosting shine,” says White. 3. Lather up — but only at the scalp. “You only need to shampoo the hair at the scalp, particularly at the nape,” Saviano says. White agrees. “The best way to lather up is from roots to ends. The hair closest to the scalp is the youngest and will inevitably be the oiliest, while the end of the hair is the oldest and usually driest, most fragile part of the hair.” Don’t use more shampoo than you need; both Saviano and White say that a quarter-sized amount of shampoo is enough. If your hair is particularly long or thick, go ahead and double that. 4. Be gentle! Friction can permanently damage your hair’s cuticle, leading to breakage and frizz. Think about washing your hair like you hand wash your delicates — very carefully. “Start your lather at the roots,” says White. “Increase blood flow to the scalp and stimulate hair growth by using vertical strokes with medium pressure.” Don’t use circular motions, which can tangle your hair. Next, “Smooth the lather over the ends in a straight stroking motion,” White advises. “Do not scrub the fragile ends or use a back and forth motion like you’re washing a rag on a washboard.” – See more at: http://the-ultimate-beauty-guide.blogspot.com/2014/02/how-to-wash-your-hair-properly.html#sthash.5q2699bE.dpuf
