How Often to Wash Your Hair

It's no surprise that approximately 93% of the U.S(1). population wash their hair daily. After all, shampoo smells great, feels great, and makes your hair look great—and you can never have too many good hair days. Although what shampooing once a day (or more) can also make you have is worn out strands.

Think about it: hair grows on average half an inch a month and the longer your hair is, the more time it has spent being exposed to the elements and your styling preferences making it incredibly delicate. And the more you wash it, the more you are stripping away its natural oils that act as a barrier against damage.

That's not to say that you should stop soaping up because waiting too long between washes can be just as problematic. When oils are left on the scalp for long periods of time mixed with styling products and environmental residue, it can create the perfect setting for more serious skin concerns like clogged pores, inflammation, and irritation.

To find your perfect schedule, pay attention to your hairs' needs. If your hair is on the dry side, stick to washing every other day or a few times a week. But if your hair is oily, you might need to wash more often. To help you hold out, try using a dry shampoo on the days you don't wash, shampooing just your scalp, or alternating between shampooing and rinsing with conditioner.
