#5: Washing Your Hair Too Often

Living in the tropics mean it’s inevitable that we end up feeling sweaty and grimy at the end of the day, virtually every day. However, the habit of shampooing our hair daily or in some cases, twice daily, can end up creating problems for our hair. First of all, even though shampooing your hair frequently keeps it clean and fresh, it also exposes your hair and scalp to potentially harsh cleansers in your shampoo, which not only are effective against eliminating perspiration, dirt and sebum, they also strip your hair and scalp of natural oils. Moreover, clean hair doesn’t hold style as well as day-old hair. Try cutting down the frequency of washing your hair by using a dry shampoo instead. They are often made with charcoal powder to absorb impurities and excess sebum, give limp locks a root lift and feature a refreshing scent to eliminate odours.
