Been having problems with dry and ill-looking hair lately? The solution: skip a day without washing your hair. Experts advice their clients to skip the washing every single day and this claim is supported by science.
It seems that daily shampooing greatly damages hair and promotes dry, lifeless hair. Shampooing and other chemical treatments washes away natural oils (sebum), that normally coats our hair. These oils provide shine and protection, making the hair look healthier and more radiant. Sebum, also, waterproofs and moisturizes the skin and hair and protects them from drying. Without it, the skin can dry and shed prematurely, leaving thriving cells exposed to the elements.
This may sound a little gross when one think about leaving your hair oily, but skipping the shampoo step every day, however, doesn’t mean you have to be unhygienic. In fact, you can still get it wet and add styling products as needed. Any comments or additional tips?
