It's said you should wash your hair every 2nd day to avoid over-washing it but what if your hair gets greasy after one day?

    Then wash it daily.  Common Sense would tell you this.

    Washing your hair too often can over-stimulate the oil glands and THAT'S what makes your hair greasy.

    Try leaving it for 3 - 4 days (easier over a weekend, and also now that we're all staying home more), wash it, leave it another 3 - 4 days, wash it, and after the next 3-4 days it should have balanced itself out, and you shouldn't need to do it oftener.

    That rule does not apply to everybody. Each person has different type of hair. If your hair is greasy then you have to wash it more often.

    Massage your scalp to let the oils spread, this will give it more volume and produce thicker hair.

  • You can try using dry shampoos in between washings. If that doesn't work then shampoo as often as you need to. I shampoo my hair during the week but I leave it unwashed on the weekend, if I'm not going any where.

    Who is it that said that? Unfortunately most people are under the influence of the media and all these companies trying to sell us stuff we don’t need

    Actually if you left your hair alone the natural oils and secretions of your skin would make you hair beautiful. Soap destroys the natural balance of your hair. I know people who are clean ,attractive people who wash their hair once a month.

    Once you get past the initial stage of letting it go you will see. But we are so grossed out by our own bodies ..it’s pathetic

    Do what works for you. I'm like you, and I bathe and wash my hair daily because I like to feel clean.

    A lot of people wash their hair everyday, so don't worry about over washing it.

    Source(s): I used to own a large beauty salon.

    Hair is already dead, you can't "over wash" it. The focus when washing hair is the scalp, though, unless you've been rolling around in the mud or something weird like that.
