Washing and conditioning your hair is obviously a great thing, but did you know that over washing your hair can actually be a problem?! Every time you wash your hair, you’re stripping your hair of its natural oils making it more prone to pick up extra oil throughout the day. It can also cause your hair to be drier. So next time you decided to hit the snooze button instead of washing your hair, don’t feel too bad about it!
Since washing your hair can actually make it more oily, it’s important to train your hair. If you wash your hair every day, try washing it every other day instead. Although it might start out by getting very oily, eventually it’ll quit being oily the second day. Your hair will adapt to your shampooing schedule. Also, pay attention to your hair type. The thicker the hair, the more you need to wash it. If you have fine hair, washing it 3 times a week would be just fine! It’s important to know your hair. If you can’t stand the thought of not washing your hair every day, then try using luke-warm water. The hotter the water, the greater the chance you have of drying out your hair.
Next time you decide to wash your hair, pay attention to how it reacts! Try training your hair so it becomes the healthiest hair it can be!
