Washing your hair is a necessity, but do we really understand WHY we do it?
Here's four reasons why it's important to wash your hair.
1. Washing your hair is a great way to of sebum build up. Sebum is naturally secreted from your scalp and although it's great, too much of it acts as a food source for bacteria than can lead to dandruff and hair loss.
2. Good quality shampoos & more importantly conditioners will contain antioxidants and other nutrients, that will feed your hair & scalp.
3. In extreme cases, excess amounts of cortisol, the stress hormone, can lead to hair thinning. However, washing your hair has been found to reduce its secretions and combat this problem.
4. If you're adventurous enough to have coloured your hair, using the right shampoo will really make your colour pop.
Additionally having clean hair makes you feel good! And who doesn't want to feel good?!
