13.06.2013 | 洗髮泡泡

[Volume 8 Issue 6, #1736]
洗頭嘅時候, 我喜歡有好多泡泡, 咁樣個感覺比較真實啲(未必係乾淨啲).. 以前以為要多泡泡就要用好多洗頭水, 其實只會係浪費囉.. 大家一陣返到去, 可以實驗一下呢一個慳節省洗頭水方法.. 首先用兩三滴洗頭水, 隨意搓下整個頭大概十秒鐘, 沖水之後再用兩三滴洗頭水認真洗頭.. 你會發覺, 頭髮經過一輪所謂嘅pre-wash, 將表面一層油積同污垢洗去之後, 其實只需要非常少量嘅洗頭水就已經可以好有效洗頭喇, 而且仲會有好多泡泡添喎!! 呢個方法係多年前睇報紙見到嘅, 或者各位有更精明嘅方法否?? 家陣樣樣嘢都起價, 不妨分享一下, 造福人群呀~~ :)
[後註] 我頭髮短, 所以大概兩滴洗頭水就夠.. 如果閣下頭髮長, 可能需要用多幾滴同埋pre-wash耐啲.. 份量同時間冇特定標準, 自己喜歡啦~~ :)
i like to have lots of foam when i am shampooing my hair, it feels more real (though not necessarily cleaner) this way.. i used to think that to have more foam then more shampoo is needed, but instead that's just wasteful.. why not try to experiment this "shampoo saving" method when you are back home later?? start with 2-3 drops of shampoo, rub evenly on your hair for about 10 seconds, rinse your hair and then use another 2-3 drops of shampoo to "officially" wash your hair.. you will noticed that, after the so-called pre-wash, you just need very little shampoo because the grease and dirt on the surface of your hair has already been washed away, making it easier to shampoo and there is never less foam either!! read this from the newspaper years back, perhaps anyone may have better idea on this?? things are surely getting more and more expensive, sharing your tips would be beneficial to all readers for sure~~ :)
[note] since my hair is short, i just need about 2 drops of shampoo.. if you have longer hair, you may need more shampoo and longer pre-wash.. this is not science and so no exact amount or time is correct, just follow what your heart tells you~~ :)

  2. Oh pre wash? Din't know there's this method!
    But then, is it really more savings? Feels like it'll be slightly wasteful, cause we may pour more shampoo during the second time, I mean hard to determine how much la!

    1. Anyway, thanks for sharing! May be can give it a try later.
      My hairs are long, I always use like 50 cents size shampoo, hehe. I also love lots of foam, can really wash more thoroughly!

      Delete
    2. The more foams, the cleaner and smell nicer! But of course it requires more shampoo la, so not very recommended la right? Like you say, things are getting expensive, must learn to save a bit...

      Delete
    3. waste?? this is actually saving lah, instead of using more shampoo, i am just using a couple of small drops (i have to stressed here: drops and not squirts like we normally do) for the prewash, and then follow by another couple of small drops and my hair is cleaned.. quite effective one ah~~ :p

  3. Main sabun, eh? Hehehehehehe!!!!!

    1. Me? I just use whatever soap I use to bathe - usually free ones from hotels. Maybe that's why I do not have much left... Hair, I mean. Sigh!!!!!

    2. When I was small, if go mandi sure kena scold by parents &/ grandparents.

      Weekend time, like to play sabun with cousins. Habis all the soap we play slide in the bathroom.

      That time dunno what is foam party. Otherwise can turn the bathroom into one party disco spot! LOL

    3. STP still using sabun? Heard of free things no good and good things no free haha. BTW do you know what sabun is called in Hokkien?

    4. Oh My this Lina should revive her sabun party and invite SP to join in for mandi beramai-ramai sessions.

      Delete
    5. hahaha, when kids that time sure everyone will play with the foams and bubbles lah.. but STP still using sabun to wash your hair and body and face?? hmmm, ask your missus or girl to get you proper shampoo, shower gel and facial wash.. then you will look as young as Twilight Man!!

      woot woot!! foam party?? i am sure Lina will be very excited huh?? and you must invite STP to the foam party, so that he can also have a good shampoo at the same time~~ :D

    6. What's a foam party? *blinking eyes innocently*

    7. Actually I prefer to use soap to wash my hair too. I have oily scalp and only sabun can clean my head leaving all fresh and non greasy. I know soap is not really good for our head because our scalp will turn very dry due to the ingredient used in soap.

  6. Good morning...


    wah...2-3 drops ah...my hair so long at least 2-3 "squirt" lor.

    Yea when I have time i do that too ...first round cincai wash and rinse then second round will be longer wash including scrub the scalp.

    You have had hair saloon hair wash before right? some shampoo girls really gila one...claws the scalp till so painful.

    actually no need to do that. It's bad for the scalp. By right must use finger tips and gentlely rub away the dirt from the scalp

    Yea I like with a lot of buble too. Nowadays got all types of shampoos ...some say no need bubble one and yet will leave the hair clean but for me, well, i guess am old fashion la. No bubble dont eel like clean la. same goes for bath soap

    4. if got prewash then no need "squirts" already, droplets will be very sufficient lah.. hahaha, so far most of the shampoo girl that washed my hair did not really scratch my scalp lah, they just use finger to massage the hair and scalp only, some just so soft until i hope they will scratch my scalp a bit, hahaha!!

      Friskers Shampoo is branded lah, Anay orang kaya whatever things he used must be branded lah.. we orang miskin, use charcoal ash to clean one~~ :D

      Delete
    5. Eh, Ah Hua likes the shampoo girl to work out a little more. Mentally thinks that, the harder we "claw" our head, the cleanier it'll get. Haha! Moreover, hiring someone to wash my head, I must make sure she does it according to my liking.

      Next time show me where to get strong and powerful finger(nail)s. I wanna go and get clawed.

    1. I don't use a lot of shampoo as it takes more time to rinse it. Anyway, my hair is not really dirty as I stay in the shop most of the time.

    2. Depends on our own situation.

      Delete
    3. yeah, sometimes when the hair gets really greasy and dirty, and especially that i apply some styling wax, the prewash really helps to wash away the dirty surface before a real shampoo..

      Delete
  12. Yes SK, what you said is completely true.. if shampoo, then rinse and then shampoo again, the 2nd time the latter was doubly and triply more.. hahaha... anyway, i dont do that often cos one time is enough.. :)

  14. Pre wash, I learnt this method from saloon long time ago. Some saloon didn't, because it is waste of time and energy to rinse again and wash again. Tedious job and still charge you RM20 or more for wash+blow!

    1. I pratice this method and realized that my shampoo can last for a very long time.

      Guys hair need pre wash to clean all dirt from any hair gel, wax or liquid.

    4. Ladies need pre wash too. Especially those with medium long hair.

    5. true lah, unless really cannot lather foam then i think the salon also need to prewash already, haha.. you are true, i think guys hair are more greasy and hence trap dirt more.. somemore we also uses styling products on our hair, so prewash really is quite necessary..

      Delete
  15. I reckon, pre wash, do not need lots of shampoo, 2-3 drops is enough. The reason for pre wash is to clean dirt and oil from scalp... Rinse away and then wash the hair again. Hair is much cleaner, smell nicer and maintain a good healthy hair and scalp.

    1. One time washing, we intend to pour more shampoo instead. Because we have the concept, pour more, hair will be more clean... Day by day, that bottle can only last for a month.

    2. Well it also depends how many times you wash your hair. My hair is short my shampoo can last 2-3mths for 400ml.

      Delete
    3. Applying conditioner has a method too. Do not need much; same 2-3 drops will do. Conditioner is too apply on hair, NOT to rub on the scalp.

      Delete
    4. ah, exactly what i wanted to say.. instead of using lots of shampoo.. just use 2-3 drops for a prewash to wash away the surface grease and dirt, and then the hair is good enough to be even shampoo again with just another 2-3 drops of shampoo.. that's what i say saving shampoo~~ hmmmm, you are right, conditioner is for hair and not the scalp, unless you are using scalp treatment cream..

  16. One little dollop of shampoo only for me.

    1. Wash hair with hot water and milky shampoo
    2. Rinse hair with warm water and shampoo again
    3. Rinse with cold water and put little moisturizer
    4. Rinse off with cold water and pat hair to dry with towel.

    May you be hairy till 80.

  29. Wash hair eh! Yannie washes hair everyday. Yannie loves her hair very much one. So, Yannie must wash, blow and style hair in the morning before going to work. But, Yannie is lucky. Because Yannie has thick hair. So far, no hair loss problem. Touch wood!
