WASH IT OUT How many days do you go between washes?  Do you wash your hair every time you wash your body? News. That is too much washing! Not to get all scientific on everyone but the amounts of natural oils our scalps produce do not need to be cleansed daily.  Washing your hair daily never allows for your scalp to produce the sebum (oil) it needs to condition and coat your hair.

If it's been over two or three days between your last wash make sure to wash twice.  To make sure you aren't wasting your product, shampoo with a nickel size first.  A nickel size won't be enough, but as you work it in and rinse it out you'll be able to get a better lather with the second wash.  Using the same amount of shampoo for the second wash should result in more lather and more cleansing.  I feel like what folks normally do is squeeze out a silver dollar amount of product and just keep adding more as they wash.  So much waste develops from this.  If you wash a few times with a nickel size of product you'll get a better cleanse AND save more of your shampoo.

The sulphate free shampoos we carry are great for you and your hair.  (Just a side note, if you're not using a sulphate free shampoo yet you better get on it.  I'll talk about sulphate free shampoo's another time....)

We have a cure for what your hair needs.  Dry? Fine? Curly?  There are shampoos and conditioners for every hair type, ask your stylist what they suggest.  Side bar- if you have as much hair as a Sasquatch then turn the nickel size to a quarter or loonie...  Maybe this up-coming week challenge yourself and eliminate one wash from your washing cycle and see if it makes a difference.

How often do you wash your hair?  I'm sure for most the answer is a few times a week, and for others, it's everyday.  How many issues do you have with your hairs? Are you absolutely happy with the way it looks, feels, smells?  Can you rattle off three things  right now that you can say you love about your hair?  If you're not too pumped with your hair or your hair style there may be a few things that you can do to help yourself out.  Of course the first (and most obvious to me) is to start a conversation with your stylist and see what he/she recommends.

The second thing? Just wash less. Simple pimple...  For those of you that have achieved ultimate hair bliss for now, disregard...  For you daily washers?  You gotta just try.  Slowing your hair washing can do wonders for you hair and it's longevity and condition.  I understand those of you who are very active and feel the need to clean your hair of any sweat and grime, but the sweat and grime may only need a rinse.  Rinsing everyday is better than adding shampoo everyday and even if you switch to every other day to start you will notice a difference in time.

Have an issue with the grease build up?  Your hair may be producing so much oils because it's being washed off daily.  If you let your natural oils come in over time the state of grease in your hair will spread out.  If you feel like you're in between washes and your hair is super greasy there are many types of products to mask the greasiness.  Also, you can pin parts of it up and/or wear a hat.  Just a few options...

Like I said, before you start any type of new hair regime talk it over with your stylist and ask him/her if maybe slowing down your washing might help a bit.  That's the fresh perspective...
