How Often Should You Wash Your Hair: A Guide for Any Lifestyle
The great hair washing debate is still roaring loud and clear: Should you wash your hair every day? Every 2-3 days? Less than that? There seems to be an endless stream of information out there, and differing opinions to match. So, how do you cut through the noise and find the right answers?
We’ve dedicated a lot of time to this very question—after all, we love talking about luxury haircare products, especially when it comes to our top shampoo! And while there is no specific mathematical equation that breaks down the exact science of hair washing (yet, at least!), there are some simple guidelines you can follow to help you achieve that gorgeous hair of your dreams.
First thing’s first: Only a gentle shampoo will treat your hair carefully enough if you wash it frequently. If you’re someone who needs to wash their hair daily due to swimming in chlorine, sweating from working out or your hair is really oily, then go ahead and wash it daily. Cuvée’s gentle shampoo is infused with the Cuvée complex, so you can trust that all scalp- and hair-loving ingredients (like Champagne, white truffle, platinum and a blend of skincare-grade botanicals) will cleanse your hair without stripping it. In fact, your hair—and scalp, which is crucial for long-term hair health!—will be healthier and stronger with every wash.
But what if you don’t swim, sweat heavily daily or your hair isn’t oily? For those in this camp, washing your hair every 2-3 days with a top shampoo is ideal. If your hair is normal to dry or curly, the natural oils in your scalp will help keep your hair healthy; washing every few days will keep it clean and hydrated. If your hair is longer, sweeping it back into a ponytail, braiding it or piling it into a top knot will help extend time between shampoos. If you have short hair, get creative with bobby pins or your favorite styling product to change up your “freshly washed” look in between cleansing.
For those with dry to very dry and course hair, use Cuvée’s shampoo once a week to keep your hair shiny, healthy and happy. And, as always, anytime you shampoo, don’t forget to follow with Cuvée’s conditioner for soft, shiny hair with just the right amount of volume!
