With so many contrasting reports out there it’s hard to know just how often you should be washing your hair.
The truth is that there’s no one size fits all solution. It depends on various factors such as your hair type, lifestyle, and even the products you use.
Some of us shudder at the thought of washing our hair just once a week, others are exhausted just imagining washing their hair daily.
I asked the Bang gang how frequently they reach for the shampoo to show just how different everyones haircare routines are:
“I wash my hair every two to three days, at the moment I’m using the L’Oréal Mythic Oil shampoo and conditioner. I also always use the L’Oréal Vitamino Colour 10 in 1 spray as a heat protector.”
“I wash my hair about two to three times a week. I usually alternate between using the Shu Uemera Colour Lustre range and the Essence Absolue cleansing conditioner.”
“I use the L’Oréal silver shampoo and Colour Corrector Cream for blondes. I use it everyday as my hair is very naturally yellow.”
I use Kérastase Bain Elixir Ultime shampoo and Fondant Elixir Ultime every two to three days. I use these products because I don’t have damaged hair and it’s suitable for all hair types. It’s really nourishing and beautifying for hair.
“I wash my hair every day or every other day depending on how it’s looking. I use the Colour Lustre range by Shu Uemera which is great for colour treated hair.”
“Due to high colour maintenance I try to only wash my hair every two or three days, but with my hair being fine it gets oily and heavy very quickly. I wash it with Kérastase Bain Force Architect and Ciment Anti Usure. I find that these products aren’t too heavy for my hair and give my hair the strength required to keep colouring!”
“I wash my hair twice a week with Kérastase Bain Satin 2 and Masquintensse for thick hair. Occasionally I use the L’Oréal Mythic Oil Shampoo and Conditioner as my hair isn’t damaged, it just needs a little bit of a shine boost. The Mythic Oil range leaves my hair soft, shiny, and smooth and also helps with detangling.”
