4 tips from top hairstylists: How to wash your hair correctly + extra tips

Did you know that healthy hair starts with a clean scalp and it is much more than just rubbing a shampoo onto your scalp.

  1. MOST IMPORTANT –  Choose a shampoo that is specifically formulated for your hair type. Whether you have oily, dry, curly, straight or colour-treated hair, there is a shampoo designed to meet your specific needs but don’t forget that you are the one who is going to use it every day so consider your personal preferences, such as scent and texture, to ensure that your shampoo provides an enjoyable washing experience.
  2. WATER TEMPERATURE – The ideal water temperature for washing your hair is lukewarm to warm. Avoid using hot water as it can strip your scalp of its natural oils, causing dryness and irritation. Cold water can also be uncomfortable and ineffective in removing dirt and oil from your hair. Aim for a comfortable temperature that is not too hot and not too cold. Wet your hair thoroughly before applying the shampoo. This will help to evenly distribute the shampoo throughout your hair.
  3. START BY WASHING YOUR SCALP – not your hair. Massage your scalp thoroughly and gently with your fingertips in circular motions. This will help to stimulate blood flow to your scalp and promote healthy hair growth. For more effective stimulation use NHG hair growth ampoules which include polar menthol and peppermint oil. In addition, peppermint oil has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to reduce irritation and inflammation in the scalp, which can also contribute to hair loss. 
  4. THE KEY IS RINSING – Rinse your hair thoroughly with warm water. Make sure you rinse out all of the shampoo so it doesn’t leave any residue. Hair that hasn’t been rinsed well enough may affect your hair roots to become greasy faster  and also may affect scalp irritation or discomfort.

Should I consider the scalp as requiring a more specialized approach? – Yes! Definitely!!!

The scalp is the skin that covers the head, and a specific anatomical feature is the large number of terminal hair follicles and is usually only considered when something goes wrong. Therefore it is vital to take care of your scalp before you struggle with everyday  discomfort.

It depends on the individual and their hair type. Some people with oily hair may need to wash their hair twice to fully remove any buildup or greasiness, while others with dry or normal hair may only need to wash once if they do not use any styling products. It is important to listen to your hair’s needs and adjust your washing routine accordingly.
Did you know that, many people tend to use conditioner and hair masks the same way as shampoo – applying it to the scalp. This could be the reason why you feel greasiness on the scalp after washing the hair.


  • Apply conditioner to the ends and mid length  of your hair. Leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing it out with water. Avoid applying straight on the scalp. 
  • Rinse conditioner with cool water. This will help to prevent split ends and keep your hair looking healthy. Warm water can help to open up the pores on your scalp. However, it is important not to use water that is too hot, as this can strip your scalp of natural oils and lead to dryness and irritation. 


Wet hair is most fragile! Pat your hair dry with a towel. Don’t rub your hair vigorously, as this can cause damage and breakage. Before brushing your damp hair, try to detangle it with your fingertips and only then use a brush.

When you brush your hair do you start from the top or the bottom?

We suggest you start brushing your hair gently from the ends upwards to ease out tangles.

We do not recommend pulling a brush roughly through your hair from top to bottom because it can worsen tangles, cause breakage, and scratch your scalp.
