Daily? Every other day? Once a week? Ever wonder how often you really need to wash your hair? According to the mane experts at Viviscal, the general rule of thumb is: the thicker your hair, the less frequently you need to wash it.
For the average person, 2-3 days between washes is just fine. There is a small percentage of women who need to wash their hair daily, those with very fine hair, an oily scalp or women who live in very humid areas. But in the end, say the Viviscal pros, you should go with your gut. “If your hair feels like it needs a wash, give it a wash. You don’t need to stick to a strict schedule. Just understand how your hair reacts to weather, physical activity, hair products and anything else that it might encounter.”
