Regular Or Dry Shampoo – Which Is Best For You

Jul 17, 2018Tips for winter

”How often should I wash my hair?” is one of the most common questions hairdressers are asked. Unfortunately, there is no definite answer we can give; the answer lies in the condition of your scalp and hair type.

People with thick curly hair or oily scalps tend to wash their hair regularly. Fine, straight hair makes an oily scalp more noticeable and requires washing every other day. Unfortunately, over-washing with normal shampoo leaves hair dry and brittle.

Experts advise that you should avoid washing your hair with traditional shampoo more than 2-3 times a week as the chemicals strip away the natural oils that are essential to keep the hair healthy.

Dry shampoo is a revolution

For those who don’t want to rock the oily look, there is a solution that’s healthier than over-washing your hair with regular shampoo.

Dry shampoo is an oil-absorbing product formulated to absorb excess dirt and grease. It’s important to note that dry shampooing is not a replacement for regular shampooing. It’sperfect for “in-between” days, allowing you to stretch the time between regular shampoo washes.

Who should not use dry shampoo

Dry shampoo is not recommended for those with dry scalps or dandruff.

While there are advantages to using dry shampoo, there are also a few disadvantages to note:

  • Some dry shampoo brands have been found to stick to the scalp, leaving behind telling powder and a build-up of product.
  • They only absorb a certain amount of oil and grease, after two or three applications you will need to wash your hair with regular shampoo.

If, after all your efforts, you still battle with oil control, book a consultation with one of our professional hair care professionals at Wieselmann Salon. We are the specialists in quality in-salon treatments and can advise on the best at-home hair care regime.
