The Best Shampoos For People Who Wash Their Hair Every Day
If the oil on your scalp is in overdrive or you schedule regular sweat sessions, chances are you shampoo every day. While it’s not recommended by the pros, since a daily suds-soak can strip the hair of its natural oils and cause color to fade, washing it often seems like the only solution for super-slick strands. We get it — not everyone is lucky enough to go a week between washes.
Those with fine hair are particularly prone to greasy roots, says celebrity hairstylist Andrew Fitzsimons. “Each hair follicle has a sebaceous gland, which is what produces the oil on your scalp, and finer hair types tend to have more follicles, so they may benefit more from frequent washes.”
Your hair type, lifestyle, workout routine, styling routine, and other factors will ultimately determine how often you should wash your hair, adds Kacey Welch, a hairstylist at Roil Salon in Beverly Hills, and with some of the high-quality shampoos out there, you can avoid stripping strands.
Here, experts share their prescriptions, plus a few smart tricks, for clients who wash their hair every day. Read on to discover the best shampoo for oily hair.
