How often should you wash your hair?

You’ve probably heard that when it comes to washing your hair, the less frequent, the better once. Do you know the washing effect on hair growth? Get more useful information in this article of MCSARA.

If you wash your hair every day, you better stop doing so. Washing your hair daily will just strip off the natural oils, instead of practice this every other day or every 3 days. Make sure you wash your hair with a shampoo and conditioner. Buying a shower cap is a good option when you do not want to shampoo or wet your hair while inside the shower.  Because this action will enable the oils to stick to the hair and remain around the scalp and not lose the water. Give your hair some time to get used to this form of washing to get a healthy habit. If you think your hair is getting greasy, you can try using dry shampoo on days when you do not want to wet your hair.

You can use products for oil treatment at least 3 times per week. Oil treatments are very simple to use. You can use anything helpful ingredient with olive oil or you can also go to a salon for the treatment, but this will be very expensive for you. Olive oil can be a natural oil treatment; all you need to do is to mix ½ tbsp. of olive oil on your wet hair. Leave it for 15 to 45 minutes and then rinse it out and shampoo 2 times before putting on a conditioner once. Almond oil can also be used that is a natural hair oil remedy. ½ tbsp. for a day of no washing. You may keep it as long as possible because you can rinse it out the next day. Do this method once a week and then go to a salon for hot oil or buy a hot oil treatment for home use.

You brush your hair with a fine brush only. You might need 2 to 4 brushes for your hair. One is the wide tooth brushed; another is the close bristled brush, a wide-toothed comb, and the rat-tailed comb. All of these are needed for your hair. When brushing your hair, use the comb in order as mentioned. Apply it daily or just 2 times a week. Start by brushing under the coat and on top of the coat of the hair. Brush at the bottom to eliminate knots. After that, start again at the roots and move going down to the ends of the hair to carry the oil to the roots that help in improving the damage rates and in keeping the hair healthier. If you will start to form the roots going down, you will just cause more knots, because this is the way to push the hair down, making them intertwine with the strands for more damaging knots.

Do not trim your hair oftentimes. You should have a new haircut every 2 months to get rid of the split ends. Remember that you need to cut only half an inch of the hair for the split ends and this should happen every 3 to 4 months only. The reason is that the hair is composed of dead tissue, there is a myth that cutting your hair will make it grow faster, but it’s not. Besides, cutting it regularly can help in improving the quality of the hair when it grows longer, because the damaged parts are eliminated, so the hair will grow healthier and shinier too.
