How often should you shampoo your hair?
  1. How often should you shampoo your hair?

    Some say every day, others say the less the better — so, how often should you actually shampoo your hair? We're here to break it down for you.

    The answer isn't as straightforward as you might think and truthfully, it can be tough to figure out what works best for you and your hair. The frequency with which you should wash your tresses depends on a few factors, like your hair type, lifestyle, and personal preferences.

    Generally speaking, most hair types can get away with shampooing every two to three days. If you have oily hair or work out frequently, you may need to shampoo more frequently to keep your locks looking fresh and clean, whereas those with dry hair may be able to stretch their washes out to every four or five days.

    There are a few more things you should keep in mind. First off, you should know that over-shampooing (aka washing your hair too often) can strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving it dry, brittle and prone to breakage. So, if you're someone who shampoos every single day, it might be time to consider cutting back.

    But you shouldn’t go weeks without washing your hair, either — your scalp produces oil and sweat that can build up over time. Cleanliness is key for keeping your hair and scalp healthy, so you should still regularly wash your hair to rinse away excess grime, oil and product build-up.
