You probably already know how to shampoo your hair properly, but deciding on a frequency is a completely different kettle of fish! How often we should wash our hair depends on a lot of different things, like hair type, oiliness and real-life intervention. Public transportation, anyone? And generally speaking, it's best to figure out a rhythm that works for your schedule and your mane, rather than blindly following anyone else's rules.

That said, there are a few guidelines to help you work out how often your strands need a sudsing, and you can check them out below!

Fine hair

People with fine hair may find their mane loses volume quite quickly and/or can be prone to greasiness. While dry shampoo can combat both of these issues for a day or two, consider washing your hair three or four times a week with an every-other-day routine. Of course, you may feel more comfortable with washing every day, in which case, do that.

Medium-thick hair

Thicker hair requires a lot of moisture, so it's important to keep your strands topped up with leave-in conditioner and hair oil between washes. Overall shampooing two or three times a week should be enough, and you should also make time for a deep conditioning mask once a week, especially if your tresses are subject to a lot of heat styling.

Coarse or curly hair

Over shampooing can strip coarse and curly strands of the moisture it so desperately craves, so washing twice a week is usually enough. That said, textured hair needs consistent hydration, so don't hesitate to co-wash in between (soaking your hair and using only conditioner), and keep your favorite leave in products on hand, too!
