How Often Should I Wash my Hair?

No two heads of hair are the same and a shampooing and conditioning routine that’s appropriate for you won’t necessarily be good for another. The frequency with which you wash your hair will depend on a variety of factors. There are no absolutes when it comes to washing your hair.

There are a number of variables that can affect a hair washing schedule. In general, those with dry hair may only need to wash two times each week, while some oily types may require daily cleansing. If you’re one of the fortunate few that have “normal” hair that’s neither dry nor oily, you can pretty much wash your hair whenever you feel the need.

Hair Type

One of the essentials in your hair care routine should be finding a shampoo and conditioner that fits your specific hair needs. Thin locks will typically become oiler and dirtier more often and straight hair may need washing on a more frequent schedule. If you have thicker hair, you can often go longer between shampooing. Hair that’s coarser or curly in nature can go longer between cleansings.

Activity and Lifestyle

If you regularly work out and engage in highly physical activities, you’ll need to wash away the sweat, dirt and oil more often. The same can be true if you regularly use a number of styling products. They can build up over time and create a residue.

Hair Color

Dark haired beauties will typically only need to shampoo twice a week no matter what type of hair texture or type they have. Washing too often will actually result is loss of pigmentation. Hair will look dull, faded, and lose its shine.

Dry Alternatives

Dry shampoos have become popular and have their place, but shouldn’t become substitutes for traditional cleansing. They’re real time savers when you’re busy and can lengthen the time between regular shampooing. Be sure to select one that matches the color of your hair and choose an organic-based dry shampoo whether it’s a powder or aerosol spray.
