Washing your hair is a skill many of us assume we’d mastered years ago, but now a hairdresser is claiming most of us do it wrong.
Twitter user @Felicityynicole shared online how you should really be using shampoo and the post has racked up more than 2,600 likes, reports the Mirror.
Hairdresser Felicity said it had come to her attention that not everyone knows that you should be using shampoo twice rather than once.
She said: "The first time will cleanse the hair of all the oils and product build up so that when you do it for the second time the shampoo can actually do what it’s intended to do.

"Also, only apply shampoo to the scalp and when you rinse it will run through the middle and the ends. Then only apply conditioner to the middle and ends of your hair, and use your fingers or a wide tooth comb to detangle in the shower while conditioner is on.
"And lastly remember to only wash your hair 2-3 times a week because too much washing can cause more build up and damage to the hair."
Many claimed changing their routine at Felicity’s advice had instant results, with one person saying: "So I saw this yesterday and decided to try your 2x shampoo advice when I washed my hair tonight… Omg THANK YOU!

"My hair honestly feels better now! I can’t believe what a difference that made — or that I’m 26 and just finally learned the right way to wash my hair from a Tweet."
Felicity replied to say: "I’m so glad it helped!!! Keep it up and you will notice such a big difference."
Another wrote: "WHAT. MIND. BLOWN. This is the stuff they should teach us in school, damnit!"
And a third added: "This is how we should be washing our faces too! First wash gets rid of makeup/oil/sunscreen and second wash actually cleanses your skin!"
