Hair is what makes everyone different. It defines you. Do you take care of it?

There are many ways to make sure that your hair is happy and healthy. Many people believe that hair should be washed once a day, but it is recommended that hair is washed two to three times a week. The oils that you naturally produce help to keep your scalp from being dry.

When washing your hair daily, the chemicals strip away the oils that you need and shampoo can’t provide.

A tip that people overlook is that shampoo is meant for the scalp and not the ends of your hair. Conditioner is meant for the ends and not the scalp. Shampoo acts as a drying agent, so, if you scrub the ends of your hair with it, you run the risk of drying your hair out more quickly than usual.

Overwashing colored hair can also cause your hair to become dry and start cracking. It is said that using too hot of water to wash hair can cause tangles, and that posesthe risk of breakage.

Your everyday lifestyle and hair type tells how often you should be washing it. The curlier your hair, the longer you can go without having to wash it. The straighter the hair, the more the oil will travel, so it may be impossible to not wash after two days. Working out may overproduce the oils in your hair from sweat.

Dry shampoo is an option to help soak up some of the extra oil as well. Using clean brushes and running them through hair twice a day will also help.

The most common step to help protect hair is to avoid, heat which is a well known risk. Some people cannot completely avoid the use of heat, so another alternative is to purchase a protectant spray before applying heat. Note that it won’t completely protect from total breakage, but it will eliminate it as much as possible.
