Do you also believe that washing hair is hard work? By the way, some people wash their hair daily and also reach the office on time. I salute them because this is a different level of commitment.
A day before washing hair, an extra level of planning has to be done. Washing hair becomes a big task if you have long and unmanageable hair like mine. Detangle your hair, apply oil, mentally prepare yourself for hair wash day, wash your hair, apply conditioner, then blow dry…
You must be thinking why I am ranting so much about hair wash. We all indeed love clean, healthy scalp and bouncy, fragrant hair. But the kind of extreme climatic conditions we live in, hair washing is an essential part of everyday self-care regimen. The big question is, how many days in a week should I wash my hair? Should hair be washed daily? The answer to all these questions depends on these five factors.
The first factor is the scalp. Keeping in mind your scalp, you should decide how many times a week to wash your hair? Many people complain that their scalp becomes oily and sticky the next day after washing their hair. Due to oily scalp, your hair starts looking flat, or dust sticks in it, which causes itching.
Dermatologist Dr. Nivedita Dadu says that due to the scalp’s oil, you can also get pimples and pimples on your face. If your scalp is oily, you should wash your hair every day because dry flakes will start in the scalp by not doing so. And if your scalp is oily and hair is dry, we had told earlier in a video how to wash it. You will find its link in the description.
There are many types of hair – thick hair, thin hair, straight hair, wavy and curly hair. If your hair’s natural texture is wavy, then you can go without washing your hair longer than people with straight or thin hair. This is because straight and skinny hair quickly becomes oily and starts feeling greasy. If you have dry hair, you should avoid doing too much hair wash.
Use of styling products
If you are a fan of hairstyling and regularly use styling products such as heat protectant spray, shine spray, or setting spray, you need to do frequent hair wash. These products are primarily of thick consistency and stay on your scalp. Due to this, there is a product buildup in the scalp, which damages the hair. Regular shampooing is required to avoid this damage.
Dirt and pollution
If you are in a profession in which you have to spend a lot of time in the field, and your hair is exposed to dirt and pollution every day, then you should wash your hair frequently. Otherwise, the earth will settle on your scalp and damage your hair. You can clean your hair for a day.
If you do intense workouts every day or sweat a lot, do not be lazy to wash your hair. You can wash your hair regularly. Sweat can increase the sebum produced in the scalp, making the hair look dirty and oily. If you do not want to wash your hair daily, spray dry shampoo on the hair before the workout session. It absorbs the extra sweat but does it only occasionally. Washing the hair is the best option.
There is no thumb rule for how many days gap one should wash the hair. But if your hair becomes sticky quickly, it is advisable to wash it in one day. But even if your hair is dry, you should wash your hair at least twice a week so that your hair and your scalp are protected from dirt, dust, and dirt.
