I am sure many of us are guilty of washing our hair too frequently. In fact, some prefer daily shampooing, to get rid of grime and grease. But, do you know that by shampooing your hair every single day, you are actually damaging it. People with oily hair and scalp or those who spend time outdoors a lot, tend to overdo the pooing process. But, you definitely need to reduce the frequency of hair washes for the sake of your beloved strands. Read on to know, what happens when you quit shampooing every day.
1. Hair regains natural shine:
The natural oils of an individual, coat the hair strands, impart a glossy finish and give a natural shine. So, every time you wash your hair, you strip the natural oils off your hair. Stop shampooing very often, as the natural oils need to be allowed to build up and give the healthy shine to your locks.
2. Add volume to your hair:
Your tresses will be full of life and thickness, if you don’t burden them with a shampoo and conditioner every day. Allow some time to elapse between hair washes, to bring more texture to your strands and add a lovely volume and bounce.
3. Different hairstyles look great:
Very squeaky clean hair, conditioned hair are too delicate and soft and do not hold any style very well. In fact, this is the reason most brides are advised to have second-day hair to help style them well. Second or even third-day hair have better texture, are easier to style and stay in place much longer. Most hairstyles like curls and braids look more amazing on unwashed hair.
4. Retain hair color longer:
Each time you wash your hair, the cuticles of your hair open up and flush out the colour from them. As a result, your hair color tends to fade faster and your locks look dull and dreary. Reduce your shampooing frequency to retain color for longer and prevent them from looking dull.
5. Lesser Frizz:
However hydrating your shampoo maybe, shampooing is a very drying procedure, as it strips away natural oils from your hair. This dry hair is way more prone to frizz. As you eliminate the natural oils, which are responsible for maintaining strong, shiny, and smooth hair, you make your hair frizzy and unmanageable. You also reduce the need to use chemical loaded anti-frizz products.
6. Lesser chemical damage:
Each time you wash your hair, you like a nice blowout session to give a set look to your mane. Also, you tend to overdo on chemicals, heat protectants and heat styling. By cutting down on your hair wash, you enhance the natural beauty of your tresses. Also, your use lesser chemicals on your hair, which is definitely welcome.
7. Save time and money:
Last but not the least, you’ll also be saving money, otherwise you will be spending on shampoos and conditioners. If you quit shampooing every day, you’ll be going through bottles at a slower rate. Also, shampooing is a time-consuming and energy draining task, which I definitely dread. Not having to shampoo each day will undoubtedly save a lot of time.
You don’t have to cut down on washing your hair altogether. Although there are many who swear by the no-poo technique, you can cut down your hair washing routine to twice or thrice a week. If need be, use a dry shampoo. Dry shampoo works well in absorbing greasiness, adding texture and for helping you feel fresher.
