Do you wash your hair every day?

Then you might be doing it too often, haircare experts say.

Overwashing can leave hair looking lifeless and dry because essential oils are being stripped away. Instead, only wash hair when it looks visibly oily. For most people, this is one to two times a week.

For a healthy scalp you need natural sebum for healthy follicles and washing your hair too regularly will reduce this,” celebrity hairdresser Jon Hala says.
