How often you shampoo your relaxed hair depends on how much product you use in between washes and how oily your hair/scalp gets. The most given advice is to wash your hair at least once a week, but don’t go longer than 2 weeks.
A shampoo is needed to get your scalp and hair clean. The main purpose of a shampoo is to remove dirt, oil and smell.
To keep your scalp clean, refreshed and promote hair growth it’s important to be consistent with your washdays. I prefer to wash my hair once a week.
I moisturize my hair almost every day and use gel to style my hair. To nurture my scalp, I use an scalp oil 3 times a week.
You can imagen how my hair looks and feel after a week. My hair looks dull because of the product build-up. Also adding products to a dirty hair will not benefit my hair, because of the amount of product that is already on the hair.
How to figure out
 Analysis for yourself how your hair looks after a week. Is your hair still looking fresh or is it lifeless screaming for a wash? Also the amount of product that you use will let you know how often you need to wash your hair.
 Based on your lifestyle, pick a day you will dedicate to wash your hair. Having a specific day will help with being consistent. My washday is on Saturday, even my friends know this. I like to start washday in de mornings.
If you are interested to shampooing your hair twice a week, make sure that your spread your wash days. For example, my standard day is Saturday right. But when I decided to shampoo my hair during the week, I like to do that on Wednesday.
Shampooing your scalp and hair is necessary! Your hair will not be fabulous when it’s dirty, clogged and oversaturated.
Make washing your hair a priority and see how your hair will thank you for it.
