How Often Should You Wash My Hair?
There's been a lot of discussion lately about how often you should shower (and at what temperature), and now we're turning the focus to the topic of your hair. How often you currently shampoo your strands probably depends on your hair type and lifestyle (i.e. how often you work out); but do you know how often you should wash your hair? It turns out there's a right and a wrong answer, and the frequency with which you shampoo can majorly affect the quality and health of your hair.
If you're a daily shampooer, you're in for a reality check. Anderson categorizes "over washing" hair as washing every single day or more. "We hear the debate on how often you should wash your hair all the time, ""Simply put, washing your hair is like washing your fine clothes. The more often you do it, the more it will lose its shape and texture. Over-washing your hair—which means every day or more—will dry out your hair, not only because you are stripping the hair of its natural oils, but also because you will probably end up using heat on the hair more often as well (such as blow drying,
straightening, and curling,"
So what's the magic frequency? the ideal amount to shampoo your hair is two to three times per week. If you work out regularly or feel like you "need" to wash your hair every day, you may be thinking that sounds impossible. But there's a simple solution for getting clean hair without stripping it. Keep reading to learn more, and to find the best way to shampoo your hair.
DpHue Apple Cider Vinegar Wash ($32)
If you're a daily gym-goer or have thin hair that gets greasy easily, and thus feel like you could never go a day without shampooing, dpHUE's ACV (vinegar rinse) is a solution to that dilemma
"The base of this product is apple cider vinegar, which is good for you and for your hair. It's a gentle rinse that cleanses and refreshes the hair. You use it in the shower just like you would a shampoo, on the roots and massage it through the ends. It does not strip or dry the hair, and just does a really quick and easy cleanse. No conditioner needed. Your hair will be revitalized, and you will definitely be able to cut back on shampooing down to twice a week, or maybe even once,"
WASHING BEST PRACTICES :
If your hair has been colored or chemically treated, avoid shampoos with sulfates and parabens,". "I recommend gentle products, free of harsh ingredients."
Additionally, like with skin, hot water is a hair no. "Avoid hot water if you color your hair," . "It opens the cuticle and can strip the color. I recommend washing and rinsing hair in lukewarm to cool water."
And finally,to ease up on the conditioner. "Most people don't realize that while shampoo goes on the scalp, conditioner should be applied on the mid-ends. Shampoo cleanses the scalp, while
conditioner on the scalp can make the hair have less volume."
