Contrary to the popular belief that both men and women should keep a “clean” hygienic habit of washing their hair daily, scientific evidence points to the fact that neither men nor women need to do this so often. Now this is not true for all since some people DO have a very oily scalp and at the end of the day they have a head full of greasy hair. In this case it is wise to wash your hair daily, but with a gentle shampoo like Kosmetic Immunity by Jkosmmune’s Beta Glucan-infused scalp treatment and shampoo. This gentle, yet effective shampoo is sulfate-free and does not completely strip hair and scalp of essential oils. It will leave you with soft and pliant hair.
On average, most people can attest to their hair feeling “greasy” after around day three of not going without washing their hair. With this in mind, it would be preferable if you could wash your hair every other day or so, since young people have active lifestyles and they will indefinitely produce more sweat and sebum in general.
So what are these “essential oils” that we have in our hair and scalp? These are the naturally produced oils that prevent the scalp from over drying. In addition, mechanically, some of these oils help to lubricate the follicles and scalp, helping you to have pliant and soft-looking hair with a healthy sheen.
What happens to your scalp if you forgo washing your hair for more than 3 days or so? If you ever decide to opt out of washing your hair for a week or so, oils will build up and lead to the growth of harmful yeast on your scalp, causing dandruff and irritation. On top of this, if this goes untreated, it can lead to hair loss or exacerbate a pre-existing condition.
There is actually no clear-cut guideline on how often you should wash your hair. However, on the days that it is hot outside or you have worked up a sweat, you might want to consider washing the sweat and dirt out of your hair with warm water. With this in mind, try to follow the wash once every other day. You can rest assured that whatever your hair wash routine is, with Jkosmmune’s Scalp Renewal Treatment & Shampoo you will be able to gently cleanse your hair and scalp without stripping the good stuff!
