Your daily shower is crucial for the way you look and smell, especially if you’re around people all day. While you need to suds up your whole body with soap or body wash, should you break out the shampoo each time you’re in the shower?
Believe it or not, the answer is no. Proper hair care in Greensboro, NC doesn’t include daily shampooing. In fact, shampooing every morning or night (or whenever you shower) can be quite harmful to your hair follicles and scalp. Continue reading to learn more!
Why shouldn’t you wash your hair daily?
As you probably know, our scalps produce a certain amount of grease—also known as sebum—throughout the day. The amount of sebum varies from person to person, but it’s always there, regardless of who you are. Unlike sebum on other parts of your body, the grease on top of your head is beneficial for your hair health. It promotes growth and prevents your hair from drying out. Shampoo’s job is to strip your scalp of that sebum, which will obviously dry your hair out over time.
Instead of washing your hair each time you’re in the shower, simply rinse it with water. The water will get rid of any sweat that’s accumulated on your scalp without drying it out. If you’re worried about your hair not smelling good, experts recommend conditioning from the mid-scalp out. This will provide that fresh appearance and smell you’re looking for.
When should you wash your hair?
Most people don’t accumulate enough sebum to warrant a wash for about three days, but as we mentioned above, some folks have greasier hair than others. If you’re one of the people who has a naturally oily scalp, you might need to wash it every other day instead of every three. Talk to your hairdresser or one of our experts if you’re unsure of when you should wash your scalp. Your hair care professional is sure to point you in the right direction to ensure you have the best-looking hair possible.
Which hair care products should you use?
The type of shampoo or conditioner you use and the products you put in your hair depends on the kind of hair you have. Is your hair naturally curly or straight? Does your hair get incredibly oily as the day goes on, or is it usually pretty dry? Unless you’re 100 percent sure of your hair type and natural state, we recommend talking to one of our hairstylists before you go to the supermarket and pick up something off the shelf. One of our experts can take one look at your hair and recommend the best shampoo, conditioner and styling products for your hair and scalp.
