Why You Should Skip Your Next Hair Wash
We all know that hair washing is a necessary part of our beauty routine, but it can also take up a lot of time. This is because it’s not just the actual act of washing your hair, but getting ready to wash your hair (shampooing, combing out tangles or knots), then waiting for the conditioner to sink in and rinse before you get back into work mode. How many times have you found yourself with wet ends at 11 am and had no choice but to throw on some dry shampoo? If this sounds like an all too common occurrence for you, consider skipping the successive couple washes. You would be surprised how much healthier your locks will be when they’re allowed to go without frequent conditioning treatments.
Why You Shouldn’t Wash Your Hair Every Day
It’s a typical day, and you’re in the shower washing your hair. You’ve shampooed it, conditioned it, and are about to rinse out the conditioner when you decide, “you know what? I’ll skip this time.” It may be challenging at first, but eventually, your scalp will adjust and be much happier.
It’s not just an easy way to save time each week; many other benefits come from skipping occasional washes. The most surprising is how long your hair can grow! Of course, a skipped wash here or there won’t make a massive difference in length, but it certainly adds up over time. And if you’re someone who suffers from oily roots or dry ends, then going without washing on occasion can help with those issues too.
Reasons to Skip the Next Wash
Ladies, do you find yourself washing your hair every single day? If so, I have a question for you: are you doing it because of societal pressure, or is there a legitimate reason to continue this routine? Let me make my case.
- Hair follicles and scalp produce natural oils that help keep the scalp healthy. However, when these oils are washed away daily, they can’t moisturize the skin like they would if left in place. This can lead to dryness and itching, which might be why your hair has been getting greasier faster than usual lately (or maybe not).
- If you’re only washing your hair with shampoo, then it’s likely that your scalp is overproducing oil as well since it doesn’t get.
As some of us are already aware, washing your hair every day can strip away the natural oils that protect it. Many people don’t realize that even if you’re not washing your hair daily, products like shampoo and conditioner can still cause buildup on the scalp. This leads to a dry, oily scalp and leaves dandruff flakes all over your clothes. To avoid these problems without sacrificing cleanliness, try using an alternative method for dealing with product buildups, such as apple cider vinegar or baking soda paste.
