To Wash or Not to Wash: How Often Should You Wash Your Hair

Washing your hair is essential to keeping it beautiful and healthy. However, it is possible to wash your hair too often, which will ultimately dry your hair out and leave the strands weak and damaged. So the key is to wash your hair enough so that there is not a build-up of the hair’s natural oils, but not so much that you suck all of the moisture out of your hair.

So, the first thing you need to do to keep your hair healthy and strong is to quit believing in  the misconception that it is best to wash your hair every single day. There is no reason why you need to wash your hair on a daily basis. The actual length of time that you should go between washes depends on the texture and other characteristics of your hair.

If your hair is very coarse, you might be able to wait longer in between washings when compared to someone with finer strands of hair. Another important factor is the amount of natural oils that your hair secretes. Hair that has excess oil will need to be washed more often than someone whose hair rarely gets oily. Even hair length and thickness can have an impact on how often to wash your hair.

Since there is no set timeline for how often you should wash your hair, you may be wondering how to know when it is time to wash your hair. The answer is not a magic number. Instead, you should pay attention to your body and how your hair feels and looks.

Most people want to wash their hair at the first sign of oiliness. But that is actually very bad for your hair because you want to have some oil in the strands of your hair. Your hair’s natural oil is what keeps the strands healthy, strong, and moisturised. The oil is also what gives your hair that healthy shine. Without that oil, your hair loses its moisture and will become dull, lifeless, and even brittle.

Rather than washing your hair every day, pay attention to the amount oil in your hair. Once you begin to notice excess oil, you can (and should) wash your hair. It is still important to wash your hair once there is an excess amount of oil and grease in your hair, because washings help to prevent product and oil build up on your hair. Too much oil and product build up in your hair is almost as bad as not enough oil because it will cause your hair to appear greasy. It will also weigh down the strands of your hair, which makes it look heavy and lifeless.

There are many things that you can do to minimise the appearance of oil between washings. You can use a dry powder-based shampoo to get rid of the oil. You can also change your hairstyle. Instead of wearing your hair down, you can tie it back. Or you could go for a messy, tousled appearance, which is very in-style at the moment.

If you are someone who normally washes daily, try washing your hair less often. You will find that your hair will look and feel healthier, with more strength and natural shine.
