Dr. Fazeela Abbasi, Dermatologist, Talking about how often should you wash your hair. Hair should be regularly washed, especially when the scalp gets too oily, there is too much humidity in the air. This also depends on the lifestyle of the person. Those having an active lifestyle are advised to wash the hair daily, whereas others can even be suited after a day. This is very important because good washing of hair not only makes the hair healthy but it also helps dandruff to disappear. It should be noted that dandruff is the major cause of hair fall. So if this is removed, your hair is bound to become strong and healthy. Another point to be noted is that oiling your hair doesn’t affect it any way or another. This has been proven over medical research and said by greatest hair experts. Massaging oil through hair just helps in the blood circulation of the brain. However, oiling for about 2 hours makes your hair healthy. But putting on oil for too long is harmful for the hair as it blocks the pores in your head. This makes the hair even oilier and promotes further growth of dandruff. This causes more hair fall. People now should be free from the misconception that not talking a bath daily will prevent hair fall. Hair should be regularly washed to promote healthy growth.
