Washing your hair too frequently can cause more harm than good according to Lynne Goldberg, Director of the Boston Medical Center Hair Clinic. Constant washing causes your sebaceous glands to produce more fat. As a result, you get into a real vicious circle.
We took interest in this issue and prepared a list of tips that’ll allow you to wash your hair less often and still continue to look gorgeous!
Watch your menu
To ensure that your hair stays clean longer, remove any fatty or fried dishes from your diet. The same goes for sugar, white bread, and canned foods. Replace these products with fruits and vegetables, dairy, lean meats, and nuts. This will help reduce the sebaceous glands’ activity.
Use dry shampoos
To conceal greasy shine, divide your hair into strands and apply dry shampoo to the roots like a hairspray, from a distance of 8-10 inches. If the shampoo is in the form of talcum powder, apply it to the roots. Wait for ten minutes, and then comb your hair. Dry shampoo will create a shell around the greasy strands that will, for a time, make your hair look clean.
Don’t neglect accessories
If you have a fringe, a headscarf can provide interesting hairstyling options. All you’ll need to do is wash your fringe, pin it up, and disguise it in some way. Headscarfs look good with collected or loose hair. They can also become a real salvation for those with short hairdos. Greasy hair can be further concealed by means of various hair pins or headbands with flowers.
