Specially we need to know that there is no point in cleaning it too often because it has a natural oil that feeds the hair. To let it do its job we must not wet or shampoo the hair for two or three days. We have to wash it at least once a week because maintaining a healthy scalp involves having a clean scalp. If we have a hard working job or do workout or any regular activity that sweats the hair then it has to be washed more often because a lot of salt exists in the sweat and it dries the hair and removes the oil. In this condition we need to rinse it well. Massaging the scalp before wetting it removes dead cells and dirt.

Take a comb with big teeth and brush your hair very well, make sure you reach every portion of it.

After you put the water on it also make sure it’s not hot and you don’t use too much shampoo, one pop from the recipient is enough.
