How often should you shampoo?

Most shampoos on the market contain water, foaming agents, fragrances, and various amounts of detergents. Shampoos that are designed for oily hair have more detergent than shampoos for non-oily hair. Detergents, while useful for washing away dirt, dead skin, and excess oil, can make hair less manageable and cause it to become dry, brittle, and lose body.
Proper hair and scalp care involves washing your hair regularly to remove the normal buildup of dirt, dead skin cells, oils produced by skin glands, and any other substances you put in your hair. How you define "regularly" is up to you. The frequency with which you wash your hair depends on the unique qualities of your hair and of your environment. As a basic guideline, people with normal to dry hair can wash once or twice a week, while those with oily hair can probably wash more frequently.
People of different races and ethnicities may have differing hair care needs. For example, people with hair that is tightly coiled,  or coarse, may find that shampooing once a week is plenty. This is because oils produced by the scalp can't easily migrate from the hair follicle down the curly/coiled strand of hair, so oil build up happens slowly. On the other hand, folks with straight, fine hair may notice oil build up sooner and may wash a few times a week or even every day. If you are flummoxed by how often to wash, you may want to speak with a stylist who is familiar with your hair type.That's what we do!!
Here are some tips for choosing a shampoo for your type of hair:
  • Use a protein-based shampoo.
  • Sulfate free Gluten Free
  • A chamomile shampoo, which has mild bleaching properties, can add highlights to lighter hair. A henna shampoo, which has mild reddening properties, may add a burst of reddish undertones to darker hair.
  • Jojoba-based shampoo is successful in treating scalp conditions as well as dissolving sebum buildup.
  • Try alternating the shampoo you use. Change brands every few months to combat build up.
  • Diet plays an important role in hair health; eat a healthy balance of foods.
Next time you go for a cut, you could ask how often you should wash your hair based on its condition and composition. Perhaps your stylist will have a recommendation for a shampoo and hair tips. Whether you find yourself in the doctor's office or hair salon, if a specialist says something you don't understand, don't be afraid to ask! It's our job to provide a service as well as educate you about what they're doing.

Is it good to change brands every month? What if we cannot find a shampoo that is suitable for our hair?

As far as your question about changing brand monthly that is not neccessary but changing because of changes in your hair condition is recommended. In winter months if hair is drier use a moisturizing shampoo and in the summer if swimming a lot alternate with a claryifing shampoo. If coloring hair you'll want to use a color safe shampoo to preserve color longer .

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog. A great read. I'll definitely be back.
