There are some people who wash their hair every single day, and others who only wash their hair once a week. Why is it so different from person to person? Is there a trade secret to keeping your hair fresh and healthy between washes? Not exactly, but there are a few tips and tricks to follow that will help! Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference.

Understand Your Scalp And Hair Type
The truth is, how often you want to wash your hair depends on your scalp type, but it also comes down to choice. Your hair is unique, there’s no denying that, but there are four main hair types, each with their own washing neds: normal, oily, dry or mixed combination.

A normal scalp is balanced, and in prime condition to keep your hair healthy and happy. In order to maintain a healthy scalp and hair, it is recommended to shampoo at least once every three days. If you’re able to resist a wash, try and go as long as possible before shampooing your hair.

An oily scalp occurs because your sebaceous glands produce an excess amount of sebum, which results in greasy hair. The trick to combatting an oily scalp is to wash less often. Some people suggest daily washing, but in doing so, your scalp works even harder to produce sebum and will look dirty much quicker.

A dry scalp is lacking moisture, which makes your hair more vulnerable to damage. A dry scalp also causes irritation, itching and even flaking. It is recommended to wash only one to two times a week, but to condition the ends more often if they are in need of moisture.

Combination hair leaves you with oily roots and dry ends, which means the natural oils produced by your scalp are not making it to your ends. You should only wash a few time a week, focusing on the scalp. Make sure not to bring the shampoo to your ends.

Wash With An All-Natural Shampoo
Understanding your scalp type is a huge step in determining how often you should wash your hair. You also need to consider the products you are using. Conventional shampoo is full of sulfates, parabens and silicones, that coat your hair and make it look clean, but these chemical cleaning agents actually damage your hair. You need to switch to an all-natural shampoo as soon as possible.

Apple cider vinegar shampoo is great for all scalp types because it is a clarifying shampoo. A clarifying shampoo gently lifts unwanted dirt, oil and product build-up from your scalp, allowing it to breathe. Apple cider vinegar shampoo is also full of essential nutrients and minerals, to help maintain your locks, and keep them from splitting and breaking. Biotin shampoo is another all-natural shampoo that is great for all hair types because it helps maintain natural moisture and shine. Biotin shampoo will strengthen your hair without weighing it down because it is designed to tackle dryness, breakage and damage.
