A] Shampoo Decoded
We use it week on week but do we really understand everything about a shampoo? We certainly don’t know if daily washing of hair is good or bad. Although shampoos come in different ranges, they are all designed to serve a common purpose to remove pollutants and surfactants from the roots or your head and hair strands. Shampoos do serve a noble purpose but while doing so they might end up causing some damage. Strong and mild shampoos both dry up the hair especially if you already suffer from thin hair problems. So, does shampooing everyday cause hair loss? We are not there yet but it does dry your scalp up and makes your strands brittle and dry. Because of this reason alone conditioners are designed to add a protective layer after the shampoo clean up so that your hair strands can lock in the moisture content more easily.
B] Daily hair wash = hair loss?
Can you wash your hair daily? This one totally depends on your hair type. Different people have different hair types; but it mostly depends on the genetics. In some cases, good health choices might improve the quality of your hair but mostly it's the genes. Now people with thick and strong hair could afford to wash their hair regularly given the fact that thick hair gets oily more often. But will shampooing everyday really cause you hair fall depends entirely upon the type of hair you have and its quality.
C] How often should I wash my hair?
Like we mentioned earlier the answer to this question could vary based on your hair type. The general answer to the question ‘Can washing your hair everyday cause hair loss?’ is yes, a general rule of thumb is to wash your hair at least thrice a week. In case you have extremely oily hair you should do it more frequently than that, may be up to four to six times a week. But if you have regular or dry hair it is not advisable to wash your hair every day. If you suffer from thin hair you should take extra care of your hair since they are more prone to breakage and hair fall. Apart from your hair wash you should pay attention to your diet and health as well. Exercise more and have a balanced diet.
