Ask Jane – How often should you wash your hair?

Kay asks,

Jane, PLEASE help!

I’ve fallen into a terrible habit of washing my hair every day and now it gets greasy literally the day after!  I’m a very self-conscious person!  I’ve tried not washing my hair for a few days but that means not leaving the house and it makes my scalp very itchy!  Please help!

Hi Kay,

It is an absolute myth that washing your hair daily is bad for your hair!

Having oily hair can be a natural state.  I know that my hair gets oily the day after I have washed it, resulting in me normally pinning it back or, as you do, washing it.  Here are my tips if you do want to continue washing your hair daily:

  • invest in a deep cleaning shampoo that has been specifically designed for oily hair;
  • rinse your hair with lemon juice.  The acid in the lemon will cut through grease and oil; and
  • only condition the ends of your hair (I’ve been doing this for years and, seriously, it adds another day onto the length of time before I have to wash my hair again.

If you are just tired of the ritual of washing everyday, why not try a dry shampoo?  Click here to read my article on how dry shampoos work.
