Middle-aged and elderly people should pay attention to these when washing their hair, and quickly tell their family

Shampooing may be something that everyone thinks is very common, but for middle-aged and elderly people, there are many things that need to be paid attention to. Let me share with you some precautions and good habits for middle-aged and elderly people to wash their hair.

Precautions for shampooing for middle-aged and elderly people

1. The water temperature should not be too high

When washing your hair, too cold or hot water is not good. Too cold water will harden the sebum and make it difficult to dissolve. It will also cause the blood vessels of the scalp to shrink sharply. Over time, it will also induce headaches. Washing your hair with relatively hot water will cause the hair to lose its softness due to heat, making the hair brittle and easy to break.

2. The frequency of shampooing should not be too high

The oils secreted by the scalp protect the hair, making it hydrated and showing its natural shine and elasticity. Excessive washing can actually damage your hair. It is recommended for middle-aged and elderly people with oily hair to wash once every 2 to 3 days; for those with normal hair, wash 1 to 2 times a week.

3. Proper shampooing posture

When shampooing, many people like to use the posture of leaning back. Because this position does not allow the shampoo to get into the eyes easily and makes it easier to breathe. In fact, for middle-aged and elderly people, it is relatively safe to adopt the traditional bowing posture with the body slightly forward. Because most middle-aged and elderly people have cervical degenerative disease, the blood supply to the brain is naturally insufficient. When you wash your hair backwards, it twists the cervical spine excessively, causing spasm in the vertebral arteries, which can lead to arterial bleeding, which can lead to stroke.

4. The right time to wash your hair

Many people are used to shampooing their hair before going to bed, but falling asleep with wet hair will accumulate moisture in the body, making people feel groggy and have a headache and fatigue when they wake up the next day. Therefore, it is best for middle-aged and elderly people to wash their hair in the afternoon when the temperature is higher during the day. If you must wash at night, try to dry or blow dry your hair, and then go to bed completely dry.

5. Dry in time

When shampooing, a lot of water and dampness will gather on the scalp. At this time, the pores of the scalp are open. If you don’t dry it immediately, the water and dampness will combine with the cold evil in the air, and it will invade your scalp.

Cold is stagnant, and dampness is also a blocking force. Cold and dampness accumulates on the scalp, and the scalp is naturally not nourished by qi and blood, so there will be hair loss or graying of hair.

Good shampoo habits for middle-aged and elderly people

1. Use conditioner first, then shampoo

In old age, whether it is male hair or female hair, as the level of male hormones decreases, the secretion of hair oil will also decrease, and the blood transport and cell metabolism at the root of the hair will slow down, so the toughness of the hair will be greatly reduced. Hair can also become thin and dry.

Many people use conditioner as a result of shampooing their hair after washing their hair, but here we suggest that you can reverse the order and use conditioner before the actual shampoo.

Wet your hair with water first, let each hair get wet on the surface, then apply conditioner, apply more to the ends of the hair that are prone to tangles, and then wait for 3 to 5 minutes before rinsing.

2. Do not rub back and forth when drying your hair

After washing your hair, I think everyone should wipe their hair with a bath towel, but the method and order of wiping the hair unreasonably may also damage the hair. Many people like to rub back and forth when wiping their hair, or twist the hair into a strand and wash it with a towel, which can easily damage the hair. If we wipe our hair daily, we can wipe it along the cuticles, that is, in the direction of the hair tail, and press it lightly to dry it, and we don’t need to rub it back and forth with a towel.
