We often get too focused only on taking care of our face. But do we pay as much attention to our hair? Sometimes we missed even the most basic part of hair care like what is the best water temperature for our hair. 💦 Rumor has it that washing our hair with ice cold water can improve the hair texture... wait, really? 🤔
There are varying effects of using extreme temperatures on our hair. Some may be good but some may not. Let's learn about the effects and decide on which is better.
Hot water is definitely a go-to especially during cold mornings or late nights shower. Though it keeps our body warm and relieves muscle tension, have you ever thought of its effects on the hair? 😅
Pros: The high temperature helps to remove oil and dirt on the scalp. People with oily scalp can find this helpful every once in a while.
Cons: Frequent showering using hot water can cause the hair to become dry and brittle. Just like with the face, using hot water can rip off the natural oils of the hair. 😰 If you love changing your hair colour, you may want to avoid wetting your hair using hot water as it can make the hair colour fades faster.
Showering with cold water is the best especially when we choose to bathe in the afternoon. Y'know, one of those lazy days when you decide not to do anything including taking a shower, you feel me? 🤣 But that's the thing. Icy cold water can be both good and bad for the hair too.
Pros: It really does help to lock in moisture and makes the hair feel smooth. Cold water also helps to reduce the accumulation of sweat and dirt, so less hair damage!
Cons: Since cold water has a tendency to smooth out the hair, frequent showering with cold water will cause a flatten and less bouncy hair. 🤦♀️
So which one is better?
The key is modesty! Why go for the extreme temperatures that can do more harm to your hair? 🤔 Choose to shower with warm and cool water instead! 💯 Remember, not hot or icy cold, but only warm and cool shower to avoid damaging the hair. Our hair is delicate so treat it with tenderness, alright girlfriends? 💁♀️ Start with warm shower to clean up dirt and followed by cool water to lock in moisture and add shine to hair.
Treat your hair like royalty, it's the crown you never take off.
