How Often Should You Wash Your Hair? By Expertease for Hair & Beauty Call Us On 08 9418 8874
How much is too much when it comes to washing your hair? The answer isn’t as simple as “every other day,” or “every day.”
How often you wash your hair depends on:
– Your hair texture
– How much product you use
– Whether you colour your locks
Obviously oily hair needs more washing, either daily or every other day. If your hair is dry, it’s healthier to wash it every two or three days.
Shampoos formulated for dry hair fill in damaged areas and make it feel smoother and more manageable.
Fine hair gets greasy fast because surface oils have no place to go. Daily or every other day washing works well here. On the flipside, curly or coarse hair only needs shampooing once or twice a week. The oil has a hard time migrating down the hair shaft.
Perming, relaxing, bleaching and colouring hair can weaken your hair. Add blow drying, hot curling and flat ironing, and well, you’ve got double trouble! Washing it no more than every other day is advised.
Use a lot of hair product? That means more dirt, dust and pollution to stick to hair. Washing your hair every day helps to prevent build up and makes hair more manageable.
It’s tempting to wash hair everyday because it feels so good! Unfortunately, it’s not always the best the choice for shiny, healthy hair.
