How Often Should You Wash Your Hair, Really?
Eight questions to ask yourself before you shampoo
Kingsley explains why fine hair needs more frequent shampooing than thick or textured hair. "Individuals with fine hair have more hairs per square centimeter," she says. "[Because] each hair has a sebaceous gland attached to it, the scalp produces more oils. Those experiencing reduced volume are also more prone to getting greasy hair and limp roots, due to the fact that there is a reduced surface area for the oils to cover."
Kingsley suggests fine-haired women wash daily with "a lightweight, protein-rich shampoo" like Philip Kingsley Body Building Shampoo, $32. We also like Garnier Fructis Daily Care Shampoo, $3.99.
