5 reasons why you shouldn’t wash your hair everyday


Many of us may feel that washing our hair every single day is good for it. However, this is not the case. Unless you desperately need to, you should try to avoid washing your hair everyday and here are 5 reasons why.

1. Natural Oils
We all hear about the natural oils in our hair and how important they are. Rather than trying to get rid of them, we should be grateful for them. They make your hair healthier and shinier.

2. Keeping colour
Conditioner can strip the colour from your hair and shampoo can cause it to fade. If you want to keep your hair dye locked in for as long as possible then you need to prevent yourself from washing it on a daily basis. 

3. Styling your hair
Fresh hair can be difficult to work with. Hair that hasn't been washed for a day or two will hold better and be more manageable. This will end up saving you time in the morning. 

4. Product build up
Sometimes greasy hair can be caused by a build up of products rather than your own natural olis, so try avoiding them for over a day. 

5. Heat protection
By not washing your hair everyday you are not spending as much time blow drying it as you normally would. This means less heat and less damage to your locks. 

Try this for a week and see if you notice the difference.
