1. Get your hair super wet.
2. Use just a little bit of shampoo. For most people, a quarter-sized amount is enough. If you have extra long or thick hair, you may need more shampoo.
3. Gently massage the shampoo into your scalp.
4. Rinse it out really well. Continue rinsing until there are no more suds or bubbles.
Insider Tip: Is your scalp itchy and dry lately? It could be that you’re not rinsing the shampoo out well enough.
5. Use a towel to gently dry your hair.
6. Use a wide-tooth comb to gently comb out your hair. The curlier your hair, the wider the comb’s teeth should be. Don’t yank or tug while you comb, which could break your hair or tug it out.
7. As much as possible, let your hair air dry. Heat styling is necessary some days, but it can be rough on your hair.

For a lot of people, daily shampoos are too much. How often you wash your hair depends on what type of hair you have and what you do throughout the day. For example, if you have oily hair, you may need to wash it daily or every two days. Straight hair tends to get oily more quickly than curly hair. On the other hand, if you have thick, curly hair that doesn’t get oily quickly, you can get away with washing it every two or three days. However, regardless of what type of hair you have, if you have a dirty job or you workout hard every day, you may need to wash your hair more frequently.
