Are You Washing Your Hair Too Often?

Am I Washing My Hair Too Often?

It’s a question I get all of the time from my custom makeover clients and my readers. Well Kaaronica Evans-Ware, BellaOnline’s Ethnic Beauty editor, takes the time to run the experiments that answers that question for herself.

In my experience, that is the only way to find what your best hair care routine should look like. Kinky or very tightly curled hair is the most fragile of all hair types and we can only speak in generalities when suggesting how often you should go between washings. But, the difference of washing your hair once a week or four times a week, makes a huge difference on the appearance of your hair..

Your lifestyle and hair type will determine how many times you should wash your hair each week. A favorite book of mine for your hair type is, “Andre Talks Hair,” by Andre Walker. The book is full of great tips and advice on the care and styling of your hair, especially if you have kinky hair types.

I need to be honest here, I have limited professional experience with kinky hair, but of the experience I do have with all hair types. Don’t go just by what you’ve read or heard, regarding hair care, do your own experiments!.

At the end of the experiment, I found that I could wash my hair everyday but it would probably create more problems than I’m willing to put up with. I’ve never had dry scalp and I’m not about to start just for cleaner hair. The time commitment was the easiest component to incorporate as it became part of my healthy mind and body goals
