Guys are either washing their hair too much or not enough. Everyone has different types of hair, but when it comes to washing your hair, the same rules apply. Just remember, there are disadvantages to both washing your hair too much and not enough.
When you wash your hair too often, your scalp will produce more sebum, which is oil produced from the sebaceous gland that helps protect your scalp and hair. But shampooing too much will dry out your scalp and make your scalp work extra hard to try to protect it by producing even more oil. This is why you shouldn’t shampoo every single day. Plus, if you have thin air, the more oil makes your hair look thinner.
But then if you only wash your hair every other week or even just once a week, then your hair will appear to be way too dirty and will even start to smell. This is obviously not a good look for any guy.
So what is the secret number? Two! Try to wash your hair twice a week. After about a month of doing so, your scalp will adjust and not produce as much oil. Of course if you work out, washing your hair only twice a week might sound like a challenge. Well in between washings, rinse your hair with warm water and use a light conditioner. Conditioner helps break up oil and sweat. You can also use baking soda and that will help cleanse and deodorize the scalp. If you are looking to add shine, rinse hair with a little bit of apple cider vinegar.
When you do wash your hair, make sure to use conditioner after you shampoo. Conditioner helps balance out the oil in your hair and moisturizes it, so it is really useful when your hair is dry, curly, course or color-treated.
Another important rule to follow when it comes to washing your hair, avoid dandruff shampoo when you don’t need it! Too many guys use the cheap dandruff shampoo and are actually causing more harm than good. It makes the scalp dryer and it is usually made with harsh ingredients. To avoid having to use dandruff shampoo, don’t wash your hair as much and when you do, use a mild shampoo. And of course, make sure to drink plenty of water as this helps with everything!
