To Shampoo or Not to Shampoo

New You Beauty Tip: Over-shampooing can cause more damage than good.

While many of us wash our hair daily, we can all afford to do less scrubbing. Women with longer, thicker, and curlier hair can thrive for up to a week without shampooing. But even the thinnest, shortest, and straightest hair can skip a day. Over washing can cause dryness, split ends, lice, and other scalp issues. It can also strip away the scalp’s natural sebum (oil). This results in an over production of sebum, and translates to oily hair. Allowing your hair and scalp to breathe may be just what it needs for fuller healthier locks.
