I'm trying to wash my hair less (for reasons given by many here about the benefits of not washing your hair rvery single day). However, with my scedule (between work and owrking out using Toppik, etc...), I'm finding that not only am I showering and washing my hair everyday, but on a lot of days I have to wash it TWICE per day.


What advice or knowledge can you guys give for either :1) how to avoid washing so much, or 2) why it might not be so bad to wash twice a day on some days?

Thanks!

If you are using tons of topicals, and especially coverups you probably won't have much choice. If there is junk all over your scalp, you have to wash it and keep it clean. The only thing I could suggest is not using Toppik when you don't need to. Those days you probably wouldn't have to wash twice. The most I can get away with using Minox is about 2 days before my scalp will feel 'gunky'.

If your hair and scalp condition are fine, then just don't worry about washing twice a day. If you start seeing problems, then worry about it. Some people need to wash their hair more then others.

Since I started using Dermatch I wash my hair twice a day. And my scalp feels and looks better than in a long time. So I actually prefer washing twice a day. (I use Minox morning and night).

I think it´s important though not wash for to long and not use to hot water, cause that will really dry your scalp. And use a gentle schampoo ofcourse!
