How often should you wash your hair?


In the Gulf countries, where the mostly hot climate and sunny summers can dry up your hair, it’s important that you learn how to protect the healthiness of your locks and maintain their beauty.

There isn’t a golden rule for how many times you should wash your hair every week. It all depends on your hair type. Read our tips below on how to take care of your locks according to each hair type.

If you have curly or thick dry hair
Having curly hair means that your hair is all about the natural oils produced by your scalp, and these are important for its health. Washing it frequently can strip your hair of its natural oils. In this case, consider a conditioner-only washing or co-wash as it is a great conditioning treatment for your hair and provides mild cleansing. Try out Pantene Pro-V Conditioner - Nature Fusion for great results on your curly hair. Most importantly avoid washing it every day, as this draws out the natural oils and proteins from your hair and causes it to dry out quicker.

If you have fine or oily hair
It is a common belief that most women with fine and oily hair will wash it daily to avoid it looking flat and dull. But that is a misconception that can turn to a vicious cycle and you should aim for balancing out your scalp’s oil production instead by focusing on a volumizing shampoo and conditioner choice for softer and healthier hair. Pantene Pro-V Shampoo & Conditioner - Sheer Volume are a perfect choice for fine or oily hair.

For all hair types, conditioning is key
Another myth that most women believe in is that they should keep the conditioner off the scalp when applying it on their hair, thinking that spreading it to the roots can weigh it down. In fact, it’s better to apply the conditioner throughout the hair from the tips to your roots. It’s all about experimenting what works best for your scalp and hair type. So try to work out how close to the roots you want the conditioner to be applied. The same goes for the amount of product you should use, so look out how your hair is reacting to all of these factors. Moreover, you don’t need to let your conditioner sit and rest on your hair to take advantage of its benefits as most people think since a good conditioner will benefit your hair instantly.
