How Often Should You Wash Your Hair?
Dandruff is tricky because it can accumulate if your hair is too dry, but it can also accumulate if your hair is too oily. If you don’t wash your hair enough, the build-up of oil provides food for a yeast-like fungus that resides in most people’s scalps. In people with excessively oily hair, dandruff accumulates more because the oil provides food for the fungus. Keeping hair clean and free of oil helps minimize the fungus’ food source, thereby minimizing dandruff.
On the other hand, if you wash your hair too much, you will dry out and irritate your scalp. This in turn causes more dandruff. The recommended number of washes is unique to your own body and hair type. Experiment with how your scalp reacts to shampooing. You don’t have to wash your hair every single day unless your hair is extremely oily and absolutely needs it.
