Are You Washing Your Hair Too Often?

Like everything in life, haircare also should be done within logic. Wash it too much – problem. Wash it too little – problem again. Here’s how to go about it.

It’s summer, which means it’s a crazy hot, sticky, and sweaty feeling all around. Does that mean you can skip looking your best? Hell, no!

This is the weather when sweat-proof foundation and mascara come out; baths happen at least twice a day; and hair has to be shampooed daily. Is that what your beauty routine sounds like? Well, something’s gotta change.

healthhunt recommends - Conditioning Shampoo

Unless you have very fine hair, or sweat a lot daily (maybe through exercising, or a very oily scalp), daily shampooing could spell doom for your hair.

Shampoos bind with the dirt, oil, and product residue in your hair, and extract them. Then, when you rinse, all of it is removed from your hair. The problem with that is, it also strips away sebum from your hair, which is the natural oil your hair produces.

Washing Your Hair

Why is that a problem? Because a little oil is necessary for your hair. It keeps your hair moisturised, and acts as a barrier between your skin and hair, and external elements. If you shampoo every day, it can make your hair dry and brittle, and hence, prone to breakage and split ends.  

Try this out - Aloe Vera Shampoo

So how often is good enough? Here are some tips:
  1. Wash your hair when you feel it’s getting dirty. Normally, twice a week is good as a general benchmark.
  2. For those with fine hair, a daily wash may be necessary.
  3. Those with curly or very dry hair may be fine with a once-a-week shampoo date.
  4. Long, thick, and frequently styled hair should also be fine with shampooing once a week.
  5. Coloured or otherwise chemically-treated hair doesn’t need to be washed as often, because the oil produced doesn’t travel down the hair shaft easily.
  6. If you have dandruff, it might be a good idea to wash it regularly, whatever the texture of your hair.
If your hair is greasy, but you don’t want to wash it just yet, try dry shampoo or baby powder to absorb the excess oil.

All of the above said, shampoos and conditioners these days come in a wide variety of qualities. There are some in the market which enrich your hair, and hence, won’t dry it out too much if you do shampoo daily. If you’re worried about the harshness of your shampoo, look for sulphate-free shampoos, which are easily available in the market.

Washing Your Hair

The bottom line is, listen to your hair – wash when it feels greasy, and stop daily shampooing if it starts to feel dry and brittle.
