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. 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
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. 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!
