Is it bad to wash my hair frequently?

Fact or Fiction?

There is in fact no correct schedule for when to wash your hair, as it depends on your hair type, hairstyle, and lifestyle (e.g. how often you go to the gym, the climate in which you live). Keeping your hair clean and protected from damage is important, so using the proper shampoo and conditioner for your hair is key to making sure it receives the hair care it needs, regardless of how frequently you wash your hair. If you have color-treated hair, for example, it is important to use a mild shampoo, followed by conditioner, which provides crucial protection for fragile, color-treated hair.

"In sum, today’s shampoos and conditioners areformulated to actually improve the condition of hair, even with daily use, so if you wash your hair frequently, it’s not bad for your hair."

Verdict: Fiction
