The best frequency for washing hair depends on its type. It makes sense not to have a single answer to whether you should wash your hair. There are different reasons, which are very individual.
It is very important your way of life, whether you do, for example, sport or live in a polluted place. But the first thing to grasp is your hair type. If you have this starting point, you can easily find the most favorable routine for your hair. Before proceeding, properly assess your hair type.
The type, texture, or length of your hair plays a big role in how often you should wash it
Before knowing the true nature of your hair, let it air dry and take a break from treating it with hair products. After a few days, take a strand between your fingers and rub it to find out how thick it is. When you barely feel your hair, it means that its texture is fine. “Bumps” means that your hair texture is coarse. If they’re somewhere in the middle, they’re average.
If your hair has split ends and looks worn out, the reason could be the porosity of your hair. They lack shine and elasticity. To test for porosity, take another wick and place it in a glass of water. If it floats up, your hair porosity is low. Also, be careful if your hair dries quickly.

Is it good to wash your hair once a week, once every 15 days, once a month, every 10 days, or every three days? In principle, avoid washing your hair every day. Too frequent washing strips the natural hair, leaves your hair brittle, and, what’s most unpleasant, your hair will become even oilier.
Here are our recommendations according to washing hair type:
Frequency washing fine hair
Fine hair gets greasy much faster than other types. Most people with such hair are required to wash their hair every day, but they need to consider the best way to shampoo it. What you need to know is that your hair doesn’t need a lot of it. Then, above all, do not apply it directly to the scalp. Lather it between your hands before applying it and massage lightly.
Rinse with cold water! It makes your hair smooth and shiny
It is clear that if you have oily hair, you must wash it every day. But the most important thing for oily hair is the washing technique, not so much the shampoo. The subtlety here is to massage the hair follicles and the roots separately, in a denser way, to be able to provide them with a greater quantity of oxygen. The objective is to activate them so as not to become so greasy. If you apply a product after shampooing, do it only on the ends of your hair and not on the roots.
Rinse your hair thoroughly, as any product left on it can reactivate the greasy effect
Thick and dry hair
Schedule your washing once or twice a week, but be careful not to allow it to dry out. Thick hair is generally drier. So they need moisturizing, which you can do before washing. Only use a small amount of shampoo directly at the root, then conditioner and rinse.
Use a dry shampoo to keep the volume light
Normal-type Washing Hair
They are called golden hair because they are neither too thin nor too thick. If this is your case, you can wash them every two days with a mild shampoo. Over-cleaning is a common mistake that causes hair to become greasy. The best is to wash your hair twice a week.
Our recommendations for colored hair are to follow your hair type to know what shampoo is and how often to wash it. Opt for a product intended more for colored hair.
It must contain conditioning elements that contribute to the protection of your hair
Now you know your hair type and how to care for it. Do not hesitate to feed them according to their type using only natural means.
