How ofter should I wash my hair?

How ofter should I wash my hair is a question we hear more than you may think and is actually a very important question to keep your hair healthy. Some people wash everyday, some a few times a week. There's even a myth floating around that NOT washing you hair is a good thing. FYI, that's nonsense!! Oil builds up and pollution and dirt collect in the oil created by the oil glands in your scalp making your hair dirty and smelly! Plus your scalp needs oxygen and your hair follicles like to be clean of dirt, debris and sebum. Here's a few tips to help.

For women a good rules is 2-4 times a week depending on you hair type and activity level. If you a avid runner who sweats a lot then more than a person who has less physical activity in their normal schedule. But as important as how ofter is...

When I wash my hair, how many times should I wash my hair?

This is very important because the first wash is to remove the majority of the dirt and oil produced by your glands and the second or third wash preps your hair to accept your styling products. If your hair isn't clean then you may have problems styling your hair and tend to OVER use hair styling products. This can be wasteful and frustrating.

Men typically wash their hair when they shower so that can be everyday. People who wash everyday can have different issues such as dry scalp or hair. People who don't wash on a regular basis can have issues such as oily hair and scalp, dry flaky scalp and combination hair such as itchy scalp and oily hair and other much worse issues such as thinning hair and hair loss.


When choosing a shampoo ask your self a few questions.

Do I color my hair? What type of hair do I have? Curly, Wavy, Straight, Course, Fine, Etc. Ask your stylist to recommend a shampoo or conditioner and ask them to use them on you next time you get a haircut or color/highlight. This is the best way to experience how the products will react to your hair type and actual hair type. Men, that means you too! You may not color your hair but you may wash frequently and experience your own scalp issues. Ask your stylist for a recommendation. Our Stylist at Bowie Salon and Spa are trained to be your advocate so this should be a normal occurrence without the obligation to buy. We know you are smart and savvy so we understand, trust is everything!
