My husbands mom is a hair stylist and she told me that it is bad to wash ur hair everyday..u need ur natural oil in ur hair in order to make it grow healthy...wash ur hair every 3 or 4 days..brush your hair often so the oils can go down to your ends...Answer

Typically, no. Years ago, etiquette and hygiene books recommended you wash your hair once a week or once every two weeks. But with the advancement of hair care products and the creation of gentler products, it is maintained that you wash your hair daily. Of course, this depends on the shampoo you use. Gentle shampoos may be used daily, while others are recommended for once or twice a week use. Make sure you read the bottle carefully or ask your stylist if you have bought a salon�s formula.

The same is true of conditioners. Deep conditioners and oils are not recommended for daily use, as it can cause severe damage to the hair and scalp. However, there are many conditioners designed for daily use. Again, read the bottle carefully or ask your stylist.


Daily routine shampoo do not harm to hairs, infect shampoo clears dust and other materials from our head and makes it clean. Shampoo can harm hairs if it is not selected according to the nature of hairs. We should be aware about the type of our hair and accordingly should choose the shampoo or conditioner. There are some shampoo and conditioners present in the market who support all most every kind of hairs. Nizoral shampoo and Viviscal conditioner are the best one among them. Nizoral shampoo cleans our hairs and also treat dad, dry, red and itchy scalp. Viviscal conditioner provides shining to our hairs and also helps in growing new hairs.


well, its not bad but your hair wont be able to produce the oil needed to help it grow healthy. i wash my hair evey other day and am still able to maintain the shine and cleanliness of it as if i were to wash it every day.

My Own Thoughts....

I believe that shampoos are actually harmful to the scalp, including the roots of your hair. It may clean it, but it damages where the eye can not see. Back years ago, Greeks and Romans used natural and organics to clean hair, and skin! No wonder they looked so much more healthier than today! Back then they probably didn't even know what was a "split end". If you can, try using organic shampoos, and soaps! They work, and improve your hair, as well as the scalp.

Use olive oil, preferably Cretan olive oil, as a deep conditioning hair treatment. It's great to use on damaged, coloured or over processed hair and can really improve your hairs condition. It's also great for the scalp and can be good at getting rid of dandruff.

To treat your hair to this deep conditioning simply massage olive oil on your scalp and through your hair. Use just plain olive oil or rosemary infused olive oil for dark hair or chamomile infused olive oil for fair hair.

Leave it on your hair for around half an hour after covering your hair with a shower cap, cling film or plastic bag. Shampoo and style as normal.

Yes, dandruff can be caused by lack of showers. If you don't take enough showers, there is over activity of your oil glands. Shampooing daily will get rid of the oil and help prevent the dandruff. Therefore, if you don't take showers daily, you can't be shampooing daily, and therefore, your oil glands are producing more oil. Get the point?
