Reader: How often should you really wash your hair? There are so many opinions out there.
Angela: It truly does depend on the hair and scalp of the individual, but there is little reason to shampoo daily. Hair is a fiber and any fiber that is washed continually will look worse than with fewer washes. Even the hair types that are excessively oily should try skipping a day and using a dry shampoo to absorb excess oil. Every three days is best for color treated and processed hair. The color will last longer and the hair will be shinier with fewer washes.
