This sounds so simple, but yet as a Hairstylist, I am frequently asked the question, “How often should I shampoo my hair?” My response…not every day. The average individual can go a longer period of time between their shampooing routine. There are some special circumstances where shampooing more is necessary; such as someone who is dealing with certain hair loss, psoriasis or dermatitis. In these situations, I would recommend a more frequently routine along with using certain medicated shampoo products.
There are some great benefits to extending the time between shampooing hair. It may improve the quality of your hair and lessens the possibility of heat damage from over use of blow drying, flat ironing, and curling tools. There is also a cost savings that can be used to invest in higher quality shampoo and conditioner.
If you feel the need to freshen up your hair, use a dry shampoo. This will definitely help your hair during those hot summer months. Dry shampoo soaks up oils, refresh and restore your hairstyle. As an added bonus, dry shampoo can also be used on your face to take away shine if you are out of facial powder.
So, unless there is a special reason for doing so, don’t stress out about shampooing your hair every day, invest in high quality hair products and try a dry shampoo to freshen up your look!
