How often should you wash your hair?

Keeping good care of your body is essential. That entails looking after every aspect so no one part is compromised and suffers as a result. How hair growth is maintained and what remedies to adopt to ensure stronger growth? You probably have pondered over these questions quite a lot and for rightly so the reason. Hair health disturbs a number of people worldwide who look for different ways to overcome their related inhibitions.

One other query that subsequently arises relates to washing. That is to ask how many times (in a week) should a person wash his/her hair? Should one shampoo every day or is rising more than enough?

The article is your first-hand guide if these questions have ever been on your mind.

How often should hair be washed?

If you just stop to look at what people have essentially been doing, you will be more than surprised. Ask around and you will have twofold answers. One group of people will tell you that they wash their hair daily, by washing they mean shampooing. The other group will do the total opposite. For whatever reasons they might have, they will avoid shampoo altogether. Washing it about once every week or once every two weeks.

However, dermatologists argue otherwise. First and foremost, they do not really agree with both the approaches mentioned above. While agreeing that different people have different hair types, there always needs to be a way in between. For most dermatologists, shampooing should be carried out not more than thrice in a week. Doing it every day can be consequential weakening your hair to a very large extent. Similarly, not shampooing will also leave your hair brittle and rough. Needless to say, the middle way should be adopted.

Washing thrice every week has proved to be beneficial for people. It goes in line with strong hair growth and gives a better shine and texture.

The Takeaways

So far,  we have known what is the right way out for perfect hair growth. However, there are some particularities to it that should also be accounted for. For example, for people involved in sports and physical activity, the situation might be a bit different.

Due to the fact that such people sweat a lot, they will tend to have greasy scalps. In that very case, washing the hair daily might be preferable but not in any other scenario. What will happen as a consequence when you do wash your hair daily is that the hair will de deprived of sebum. Sebum is the substance that protects the hair from drying out.

Dermatologists have also raised one other point that can be utterly useful. Instead of shampooing when you feel the need to, you can rinse it with water. You can carry that when you feel your hair are sweaty and dirty. In that case, simple rinsing with plain water may yield positive results.

Lastly, whenever buying a shampoo, make sure to match it with your hairtype. Not all brands work for all types and it is important to be particular. You might want to consult your doctor before you decide to make a purchase.
