Revealed: Why Washing Your Hair Makes You Glow

Some facts in this post may surprise you.

I hope you’re having a great day!

I am enjoying the great weather we have here in Virginia by going for a walk by the river; it really helps me to clear my head and get mentally prepared for the upcoming week.  Every woman must prioritize self-care and treating herself.  And hey, we deserve it.

But before heading out, I would like to share this with you.

Have you ever noticed that your skin looks great, right after washing your hair?  No, it's not your mind playing tricks on you.

Just like how working out and exercising helps to boost the heart rate, increase blood flow and circulation, etc., washing and styling natural hair are strenuous tasks and can also be regarded as workouts.

Sound interesting?

Sectioning, washing the hair, DETANGLING, and twisting are all regarded as strenuous activity, most times we do all these activities in the shower where there are higher temperatures and lots of steam, which causes the pores on our face to become larger.  As we sweat, toxins are rapidly flushed out, resulting in fewer clogged pores, hence smoother skin. 

Here are some bonus tips on how to do a perfect steam facial.

  • Bring a small pot of water to boil
  • Wash your face
  • Pour the boiled water into a bowl
  • Add herbs or essential oils.
  • Hold your face over the steaming water
  • Smooth our Detoxifying Earth Mask over your face
  • Use a toner to close your pores
  • Moisturize your face.

Once you’re done washing your hair, don’t forget to do a quick rinse with cold water, this will help close the cuticle and return the pores to its normal size. 

Hairlines and Heat

If it’s been a few weeks since you last washed your hair, a simple act of shampooing can also help remove dulling buildup, especially around the hairline and edges.  Because the hairline frames our face, having clean hair will give the illusion of clearer, healthier skin!

Sitting under a hooded dryer not only sets your hairstyle in place, but it also constricts pores giving way to tighter, more even-toned skin. (Be sure to moisturize afterward).  Although the effects are not long lasting, you can still enjoy this mini rejuvenating face-lift.   

So, the next time your skin and face are looking dull and lackluster, wash your hair! And for a 1-2 mega punch use Tree Naturals Detoxifying Earth Mask on your face and hair to experience soft, glowing hair and skin.

Here are some other reasons why you should wash your hair regularly

  • You have thin, fine hair

If your hair texture is thin and fine, your strands tend to get greasy fast that's because oils (sebum) from your scalp can easily travel down your locks, giving them that oily appearance, if you prefer your hair grease-free, washing it daily may be right for you

  • You work out regularly

Working out and sweating can lead to building up of excess oil on your scalp, which can cause skin problems.  So if you sweat daily, it's a good idea to give your hair an excellent daily wash to keep your scalp healthy.

  • You want your hair to grow longer and beautiful

Washing your hair helps remove dead hair follicles and buildup, which in turn stimulates hair growth. If you need a little help getting your hair to grow, you might want to consider washing it more often.  Healthy hair starts at the scalp.
