Is it bad to wash your hair every day?

Man washing his head

Do you shower every day but are unsure whether or not to wash your hair? It is normal, since when it comes to the daily hygiene routine, there are many misconceptions. One of them is the one that ensures that washing your hair every day is bad because it reduces the amount of essential oils in the scalp.

However, what can damage the hair is precisely the opposite. Not washing your hair, especially after a day of heavy sweating (let's say 8 hours at work and 1 extra in the gym), is a threat to the proper oxygenation of the pores.

Therefore, to the question of whether it is bad to wash your hair every day, the answer is no. The idea that an oily scalp is healthier than a clean one must be banished. Instead, you should start to consider that sweat clogs pores e, just as we would remove it from other parts of the body, it should also be done with the scalp.

But then why do so many people believe that it is harmful to wash your head every day? It is probably just a confusion. And the thing is, shampoo (if it is at least of medium quality) is not bad and water for granted, but the use of certain styling products and, above all, of irons and dryers Yes, they can be for both the hair and the scalp in the medium or long term. If we limit the use of irons and dryers, there should be no problem with washing your hair daily, in fact, experts assure that it will become even healthier than doing it once or twice a week.
