Personal hygiene is a wonderful thing, but have we perhaps become too obsessed with washing our hair every day? The truth is that the daily habit of shampooing, and especially of rinsing and repeating, is not likely doing your hair any favors. The vast majority of people could stand to wash their hair only a few times a week, and no, this wouldn’t cause a pandemic of bad smelling and oily looking hair.
Frequent shampooing can actually be damaging your hair and taking away from its natural health and beauty. The sulfates found in many shampoos may be causing your hair to dry out, making it look dull and frizzy. Sulfate free shampoos offer a good alternative for sensitive hair but don’t need to be used every single day.
So we’ve established that you don’t need to wash your hair every day, but then how often should you do it? Every second day? 3 times a week? Once a week? No one, not even hair and skin professionals such as dermatologists and trichologists, can seem to agree on an answer.
That’s because there really is no simple and concise answer to how often you should wash your hair, as it is going to depend in large part on the type of hair you have and on how oily it gets. Some people are fine waiting an entire week, while other people prefer to do it at least every other day.
Experiment a little bit to try and find out what works for you. Chances are that you will be pleasantly surprised with how clean and fresh your hair looks even after a few days. Your scalp will be healthier as well, and you’ll even save a few bucks a month on shampoo!
