How much shampoo to use?
  1. How much shampoo to use?

    Washing your hair may seem like such a simple task — and yet, it’s still possible to get it wrong. If you need help figuring out how much shampoo to use, we’re here to decode the perfect amount of lather.

    When it comes to shampoo, you might think that more is always better. After all, you want to make sure your hair is nice and clean, right? But using too much shampoo can actually strip your hair of its natural oils, leading to dryness and breakage.

    Ultimately, it all comes down to your hair type, length and thickness. If you have short hair or thin strands, you'll need less shampoo than someone with particularly long, thick hair or an oily scalp.

    As a general rule of thumb, start with a quarter-sized amount and add from there if you feel like you need more lather. It’s best to start with less and adjust as needed, as this will help you avoid going overboard with your shampoo.

    To make sure you're using the right amount, it's important to wet your hair thoroughly before applying shampoo — this helps to distribute the product evenly. Make sure to massage the shampoo into your scalp and roots, as this is where the most dirt and oil tend to accumulate.
