You've no doubt heard that it's bad for your tresses to wash them every day. But if your style falls flat or your locks get greasy after 24 hours without a shower, you might think you don't have any other options! Is washing your hair often really that bad for it? And what can you do to avoid it?
Washing your hair strips it of its natural oils and dries it out, which can actually make hair greasier in the long run. Plus, if you subject your tresses to a blow dryer, curling iron or flat iron every morning (and lots of us do!), you could be frizzing your hair and causing split ends, flyaways and all kinds of other damage. So what can you do to minimize damage in the shower? There are a few ways.
If you must wash your tresses every day, skip the shampoo from time to time and use only conditioner. And when you hop out, let your hair airdry, even if it means you have to wear it in a bun – your locks will thank you.
When you do wash your hair, make sure to use gentle products, like L'Occitane Aromachologie Repairing Shampoo or June Jacobs Citrus Clarifying Conditioner, to keep your hair healthy.
