Rethinking Haircare: Why Less Shampoo Might Be More

Are you tired of shampooing your hair every day? Turns out, you might not need to. Discover the truth about how often you should shampoo, and why less might actually be more.
Rethinking Haircare

We’ve all grown up with the notion that shampooing our hair every day is necessary for healthy hair. But, as it turns out, we might have been doing it wrong all along. According to experts, over-shampooing can strip the scalp and hair of its natural oils, causing dryness and irritation. It can also lead to hair damage and breakage, especially for those with dry, curly, or textured hair.

So, how often should you really be shampooing your hair? The truth is, it varies from person to person. Some people might need to shampoo their hair daily due to oily scalp, while others can go longer between washes without any issues.

One study found that people who washed their hair every day had more scalp irritation and dryness compared to those who washed every other day. The study also found that those who washed their hair every other day had healthier-looking hair and less scalp irritation.

But, if you’re used to washing your hair every day, cutting back can be a bit of a challenge. Start by gradually increasing the time between washes and use a dry shampoo in between to absorb excess oil.

Another important factor to consider is the type of shampoo you use. Look for gentle, sulfate-free shampoos that are formulated for your specific hair type. Avoid shampoos that contain harsh chemicals or fragrances, as these can further strip the scalp and hair of its natural oils. We have created our shampoo bar range using mild plant-based ingredients and have kept them sulfate-free, paraben-free and in fact free of all the known toxins. Give them a try –

In conclusion, it’s time to rethink our hair care routine and break free from the daily shampooing cycle. By washing our hair less often and using gentle, sulfate-free shampoo bars, we can improve the health of our scalp and hair in the long run. So, go ahead and give it a try – your hair will thank you for it!
