How often should you wash your hair?

There’s a lot of information, when it comes to washing your hair. Some say you should wash it daily, some say that the frequency of washing it doesn’t matter at all. At S+ Haircare, we decided to finally reveal the secret, what the perfect hair washing schedule looks like.

In reality, there is no single rule for washing hair – what works for one person may not work for others. The most important thing is to know your hair type, use the shampoo-conditioner suitable for your scalp and see how your scalp and hair react.

Know your scalp type

To figure out how often to wash your hair, the first step is to determine your scalp type. Different hair types also have different needs, so there is no ideal frequency to wash your hair. If your hair is oily, you may need to wash it more often to prevent the scalp from producing excess oil. However, people with dry or curly hair may benefit from a less frequent washing schedule to preserve essential oils.
