14 Hair "Rules" You Have to Break
Want to know the real reason for your bad hair days? It's probably because you followed some of this really bad advice
Break This Rule: Shampooing every day is bad for your hairWhen it comes to shampoo frequency, it really depends on your hair and scalp -- and your personal preference. Babaii likes to start with a clean canvas every day (translation: freshly-shampooed hair), and says you can too unless your scalp and hair are very dry.
Aside from styling advantages, there are other reasons to suds up more often, says Christian Serafini, Master Stylist at Rossano Ferretti Hair Spa in Beverly Hills, Calif. "Shampoo[ing] to keep the scalp clean, eliminate oil and build up, and keep [hair] follicles breathing is important for every day." The most important thing, he says, is to use a shampoo that's right for your hair. One that's too harsh will dry out your scalp and hair and make daily washing impossible.
