When it comes to fine hair, lathering up less is our number one recommendation. Think about washing your hair like laundering your favorite silk blouse, the more you wash it, the more worn and tired it looks. The truth is shampooing hair strips it of natural oils, so simply put: fewer washes equals healthier hair. Swapping out your regular shampoo for a gentle, sulfate-free alternative is an easy first step but to really reinvigorate lifeless locks, our hair experts recommend washing it 2 – 3 times per week. If you’re worried about greasy roots on in-between days, a good dry shampoo will be your savior.
