How Often Should I Shampoo?


How Often Should I Shampoo?

“Lately, I have read a few articles that recommend shampooing hair every two to three days, not daily. What do you think?”

In my 20 years of salon experience, I have cut and styled the hair of customers of all ages, hair types, and life style. Many wear trendy cuts and need styling aids on a daily basis to create their look. Others, who are more athletic and include exercise in their daily routine, need a daily shampoo. It is important that you assess your lifestyle and work around it. General rules may be helpful, but there are always exceptions to the rules, especially as they pertain to hair care.

It may be helpful to compare hair to a beautiful, fine fabric. As you know, fabrics vary in type and texture, and each type of fabric needs to be cared for accordingly. Shampooing daily is appropriate for a majority of my clientele’s hair types. However, daily shampooing requires a gentle product. Using the right product will make sure that your hair is luxuriant, silky, and shiny. In contrast, infrequent shampooing often results in hair that is dull, lifeless, and hard to manage.
