Taking a hot shower is the ultimate form of relaxation. It soothes the nerves and relieves you of all the stresses of the day. It is therapeutic. However, to get rid of all the tensions one might take a long, hot shower, which can be damaging for the hair.


While washing your hair there are some techniques that one must follow. Though it might seem like a pretty basic task, there are some things to keep in mind to have voluminous and luscious locks at the end of it. So have a look at 5 such dos and don’ts that one must follow to get bouncy and shiny hair at the end of a hair wash.


Use lukewarm water

In winters, one might be tempted to wash their hair with piping hot water. But doing this can harm your hair and make it incredibly dry and frizzy. Use lukewarm water instead to wash your hair and rinse it with cold water in the end to seal the moisture.

Condition your ends

If you have an oily scalp, then it is always better to condition the length of your hair rather than the roots. Leave the conditioner for as long as possible to achieve silky and shiny hair.

Don’t rub your hair with a towel

Your hair is incredibly prone to hair fall when it is wet. Rubbing it with a towel to dry it can damage your hair and increase hair fall. Gently pat your hair with the towel to get rid of the excess water and allow it to dry naturally.

Avoid washing your hair everyday

In your attempt to achieve bouncy and silky hair, you might be washing it daily. Washing your hair daily can strip it of the natural oils and can make it dry and increase hair fall. 

Massage the scalp

While washing your hair, you often focus on the ends and the length of your hair instead of the roots. The scalp is the oiliest and needs the most attention. So massage your scalp with the shampoo in circular motions to get rid of the oil and the dirt.
