You’ve probably heard that to have a shiny and healthy hair, you should be careful with shampooing. It’s because shampoo contains harmful substances. But of course, shampooing is a must. So how often? Well, it depends on the structure of your hair. For example, you can ask your hairdresser. An expert can figure out if your scalp produces oil actively or not. And dermatologists point out that curlier hair requires less shampooing. But if your hair is straight, the oil can wick down quite fast. And superstraight hair needs to be washed every two days or so. Quite interesting, right? So, adjust to your hair type when shampooing, and your hair will be healthier and, consequently, grow faster.
