We get asked a lot about how often you should wash your hair, does shampooing your hair daily cause hair fall and what’s the best brand shampoo to use! Here you go, it’s all here!
How often should you shampoo your hair?
This is a very personal question and one that will vary from person to person, season to season. Someone with super long hair in winter will most certainly not want to wash their hair daily and someone with short hair is happy to do it daily in summer, makes sense right? Well the easy answer is this, just like your skin your scalp gets dirt, pollution and oils that need to be removed in order to have a healthy scalp, healthy scalp healthy growth! So it makes sense that you wash it daily! The longer you leave it the more oily and polluted your scalp will become. You wouldn’t wash your face every second or third day then wonder why you have a breakout would you?
When you wash it you notice hair in your hands, this is NOT from the shampoo and it’s 99.9% just naturally occurring hair that is coming out regardless but with the massage effects and rubbing you see it in your hands versus just falling on your shoulders during the day. Now that’s the scalp and condition based on your hair for the hair and not the scalp.
What shampoo is best for you?
That’s like asking what food am I going to like the most, it is different for everyone, while some have thick, coloured, fine thick etc etc. we recommend staying clear of shampoo with sodium laureth sulfate ( the detergent that is added just to add bubbles which is also added to many household cleaners). Apart from that it would depend on your budget and haircare regime. We use Alfa Parf as well as Schwarzkopf shampoo and there are many sulfate free shampoo’s on the market.
Will washing my hair make me bald? There is absolutely no truth in this whatsoever, baldness is fundamentally genetic and in your DNA. For guys you are more prone to hair loss than woman!
It’s beyond comprehension that some of you think most of our posts have a double meaning, seriously we are not that clever all we are trying to do is help you have better hair.
So we get asked a lot on how often should you shampoo your “hair” and it’s a very basic question with some remembering what their mother or grandmother has told you with little or no base to it other than handed down reality.
You can wash your hair everyday it is perfectly fine to do so, in fact it’s probably a good idea especially in a hot climate like India where the pollution levels are fairly high.
A few things to remember tho
When you shampoo, always use a conditioner, shampoo opens the cuticle cleanses and conditioner closes the cuticle.
Using a SLS free shampoo is more gentle on hair and scalp so it won’t strip your color out or dehydrate your scalp.
If you have an oily scalp you still condition the hair, a co dictionary us not for your scalp.
Double washing is also ok if it needs it. Don’t apply shampoo to hair that is too wet, remove excess water then apply working from scalp to ends.
Any dirt, pollution or junk that is left on your scalp can and most likely will create a perfect breeding ground for bacteria which can lead to dry scalp, itchy scalp & hair loss.

It’s a shower, you clean yourself and let’s be honest you should be doing it everyday if not twice if you’re a little obsessive.
If you like a lot of people you have a little of this, a little of that, a jar practically the only thing left is the fragarance and you can’t bring yourself to throw it out.
Clean up your bathroom!
Go get all the bottles now and start by putting in the bin the ones you have actually finished, the ones that are almost empty put in the bin! Before you buy anything else this all needs to be used up or given away. The shampoo and co dictionary your using now is not the same as it was 2 years ago.
Once your done and finished with all these bottles or found a home for them, then it’s time to get into the salon and plan your hair care regime with intention. But until you make the effort in the bathroom nothing will follow suit.
