7 Convincing Reasons Why You Shouldn't Wash Your Hair Every Day ...

There are many reasons why you shouldn’t wash your hair every day.

I’m an advocate for skipping the shampoo and conditioner as many days as you possibly can.

There are many factors that can go into how many days you can skip, such as hair type, thickness, and whether or not it is processed in some form or another.2

If you have ever been curious about what it might be like for your tresses if you skipped a wash or two, check out these reasons why you shouldn’t wash your hair every day.

1. Your Hair's Natural Oils

Your Hair's Natural Oils

One of the biggest reasons why you shouldn’t wash your hair every day is because of the natural oils on your hair and scalp.2

While many try so hard to get rid of these oils, the truth is, they are wonderful for your hair.

Your natural oils will make your hair healthier and shinier than most products.

The thicker your hair is, the more time it takes for these oils to work their way down the strands of your hair, meaning you can go longer between washes.

Even those with thin hair should be able to go at least every other day without lathering up!2

2. Hair Styling

Hair Styling

Hair tends to style better the day you don’t wash your hair.

Curls stay in place better, it’s easier to brush your hair back into a ponytail or bun, and flyaways are more easily tamed.

This is why many stylist’s recommend coming into the salon with “dirty” hair before getting an up-do or any type of special service.

If you have trouble getting your curls to stick, next time try it on 2nd day hair.

You just might be surprised!

3. Fresher Color

Fresher Color

If you have color treated hair, you are doing yourself a disservice if you wash your tresses daily.

The less often you can wash your locks, the better your color will look.

Shampoos can strip the color from your hair or simply cause it to fade.

Since coloring your hair isn’t exactly cheap, it’s best to keep up with your investment by skipping shampoo as often as you can.
