This is How Often You Should Wash Your Hair, According to Experts
Props to you if you always muster the guts to take a bath every day before you head out, that only means your hygiene is on point. But just a piece of friendly advice from our experts: it’s not always ok to shampoo your hair.
In fact, constantly washing your hair with chemicals can have adverse effects on your luscious locks! Here are tell-tale signs that you are using shampoo too much:
Dry Or Frizzy Hair
It may be tempting to wash your hair every time you wake up because admit it, your scalp can get oily overnight, but sometimes, your intention of cleaning may be doing more harm than good. For example, if you noticed that your mane’s texture suddenly changed, it might be because of what you’ve been using.
Dry and frizzy hair means it lost its moisture, which may be because of too much shampoo. Tonya Le, a famous celebrity stylist, suggests using cuticles to make your locks shinier and softer.
Split ends are just normal and are often seen as a sign that you need to get a trim. However, if you observed that it has become more common than usual, then take it easy on the shampoo.
This is an indication that you are over-washing your mane. Always remember that wet hair is more breakable and prone to damage, which is why you should be careful when combing after a bath.
If you are noticing that your scalp is getting itchier, it might be because you have dandruff, which is caused by a dry and flaky scalp. It is one sign that you’re washing your hair so much that you have stripped the naturally produced oils.
That means leaving your head alone once in a while will give the oil glands found in your scalp a chance to do their job of producing essential oils. If the problem becomes too much, there’s a specific treatment to address your dandruff issue.
Fading Hair Color
Caring for dyed hair is different than maintaining your natural locks. If you noticed that the color has been fading, the chemicals on your shampoo may be the culprit. There is a specific formula for treated locks, which will minimize fading.
Even with the right products, don’t wash your hair every day. Ideally, you should clean your locks every other day.
Stripping off your scalp’s oils will not only result in breakage and damage, but it can also cause dull hair. Less shiny hair means it lacks moisture which usually happens when oil is washed away.
