& the hair GODS spoke
So your obviously we’re all concerned about our hair growth and oily scalp syndrome and all the nasty things that could potentially be crawling all over your scalp! SOOOO i’ve been reading blogs lately about women washing their hair once monthly!!! Or only washing their hair with water nopo (NO Shampoo)!! Holy cow no shampoo thats outrageous my scalp smells after a wild weekend of working out and going out!! That came out wrong it doesn’t smell like daisies, different not horrible but not delicious! That makes more since right?
So now let’t get to the DIRTY DIRTY !!! How often should we wash our DIRTTTY hair?? Now, i’m no expert (YES I AM!! I WENT TO HAIR SCHOOL!!!) I would say every 3 days !!!!! That’s my hair dresser prescribed opinion. According to science i’m totally wrong, scientifically speaking or oil glads are all different. We are similar but equally different, our oil glands on our head produce sebum (now your produce sebum all over your body but were talking scalp here so….)! Now what the heck is sebum? Sebum is an oily substance that prevents your hair from drying out! How cool right your body is helping your hair stay moisturized!! So here is the kicker everyones hormones levels are different some people have out of wack hormones so sorry babes! Men have other sebum issues related to testosterone (we won’t get into that can of worms)!
With that being said your hair can be oily AF or very dry this is all depends on your genetic makeup and sebum production. On top of all the oil build up if you have thinner fine hair, your oil visibility is much greater than a gal with a horse mane!
So let’s talk about hair washing!!!! How often for who and how often!!!
Let’s break this down just a bit sadly this answer was a little disheartening. Soo…. We all have different hair washing days! But roughly all about the same!
OILY FINE HAIR: You must wash it more than once a week!! At least twice but only you know how oily your hair actually is!
DRY TO NORMAL: You only have to wash your hair once a week!!! That is right no more daily washing!!!
Now this is only based off hair type this is not based by the amount of dry shampoo or styling serums you add to your hair!! That on it’s own is a whole new set of rules to washing!!
With this all being said don’t be gross wash your hair at least once weekly!
