How often should you wash your hair? 

We’re sorry to say but this answer varies between everyone. There isn’t a one size fits all response with this one. It comes down to your hair type and routine as to what’s needed. In an ideal world, you’d only wash it on average twice a week. Studies suggest though that if you are using a professional shampoo, you should not have a negative impact on the frequency that you wash your hair. 

Most of the time it comes down to personal preference and individual needs. Sometimes age, gender and location will play a role in the frequency in which you wash. The most important thing to understand is if there is an underlying hair concern that needs to be addressed.

What is your hair concern? 

Many people report different issues that can make their hair look less fresh. One of the most common reasons is due to oily roots. This is when there is an overproduction of sebum on the scalp and it creates an excess of oil. In some cases, it can make peoples hair look wet and greasy after washing it. Sometimes the oils are just on the root and the ends are often dead. 

Other issues reported are the flaking of the scalp also known as dandruff. Often it will be irritating and lead you to scratch, causing visible flakes in the hair and sometimes will produce oils as a result.

The other issue is dry and damaged hair. This is frequently accompanied by frizz (unfortunately). As a result, clients will sometimes use hair appliances to help smooth over the frizz that gets produced. If your frequently curl, bleach, colour or straighten, this is probably your biggest concern daily. 

Once you’ve identified your concern, you need to learn how to treat it so help last longer between washes! 

How to freshen hair by washing 

Confused that we are suggesting washing it? That’s probably because you’ve been using the wrong products. What shampoo and conditioner do you use? Where do you buy it from and what ingredients are included in it? Many people often turn a blind eye to what they are buying because they aren’t sure of the confusing names within the products. Brands bought from supermarket shelves will often have increased amounts of silicones and parabens which can lead to an increase in you needing to wash your hair.

Go for a reputable brand like Pure Brazilian. Need specialised blonde shampoos? Use No Yellow. Have excess oils? Use Eleven Australia Deep Clean Shampoo or PieTrust us, you’ll feel amazing. All you’ll need next is the general maintenance!

Freshen your look with styling products

Okay, so there are a few things that you can try to get a few extra days between washes. Let us just start with the obvious and that’s dry shampoo. Not only will this reduce oils in the hair, but it also offers volume and body qualities that give lift! Here’s a secret, we also use this when styling hair for formals. Honestly, there are so many amazing brands to pick from our top 3 dry shampoos are By Moroccanoil, Eleven and Paul Mitchell. 

If you’re not the type to use a product, simply brushing your hair can sometimes be enough. It helps to spread the oils from the roots of your hair down to the ends and helps to repair the hair naturally. While this isn’t going to be a miracle transformation, it’s good practice to brush daily. If you must use a hot styling brush, ensure you use a thermal protectant to be safe. Ceramic paddle brushes are our go-to in the salon! 

Dry and damaged locks? Shine sprays, oils and moisturising creams work wonders for the hair. Just remember to only apply to the mid-lengths and ends to avoid an oily scalp. Don’t trade one problem for another! Leave-in conditioners and masks could also be beneficial too!
