How often should I shampoo my hair?

Our stylists get this question all the time, and there really is no clear textbook answer for everyone. Everyone’s hair is different and requires different kinds of care. We CAN give you some awesome tips, though.

Most people don’t know that when you wash your hair everyday you actually produce more oil on your hair because your body produces extra oils to make up for what the shampoo has taken out. Therefore, Correne (one of our fabulous stylists) recommends to shampoo every other day at the most. If that is not an option for you and you feel that you need to wash everyday, we recommend just shampooing the scalp – the ends of your hair do not need to be washed everyday. This way, the oils at the top are being washed out while the ends are not being dried out too much.

If you do go multiple days between shampoos, but just need a quick fix to get rid of the oily look, we love Bumble & Bumble’s hair powder. Choose the one that most closely matches your hair color and use for a dry cleanse to absorb the oil on your roots.
