How often should we really wash our hair???
This is the question I asked my team last week. With so many myths flying around I thought I’d try and get to the point.
These days we certainly wash our hair more than we did a generation ago.
Latest hair-care figures show the UK sales figure for shampoo, conditioner and styling products up by 5%
According to my team their opinion differs according to their hair type and life style.
My partner in crime, Jane, washes hair every day because it gets greasy – Stylist Faye washes twice a week as the dirtier her hair gets the more versatile it is!!
Our manager Jayne, is another twice a weeker and Stylist Abbey every other day as her hair is weak and fine.
Personally, I’m every other day because I’m lazy and can’t be bothered every day!
But what I do feel is extremely important isn’t how many times we wash our hair but the correct products we use for our hair type.
If your hair looks limp on the second day, chances are you’re using a product that is too rich and weighing it down. That starts a viscous cycle of needing to wash your hair everyday rather than changing your products. The same goes if your hair needs nourishment or smoothing.
That said it also doesn’t harm your hair to wash it every day… if it’s dirty wash it! We wash our bodies every day so why should hair be any different?
So what about not washing your hair at all… doesn’t it clean its self after a while?
Your hair can certainly be pushed back a couple of days by using dry shampoo…. Think festivals, camping and no showers! But longer than that? I wouldn’t recommend it…..trust me I’ve seen, smelt and washed dirty hair………
And on that note, I’ll catch up with you later
