How Often Should You Wash Your Hair?

How Often Should You Wash Your Hair?

There are many varying opinions out there as to how often we should wash our manes: once a week, twice a week, once every two weeks, every other day, etc. With so many hair types and conditions out there, there really is no universal answer to that question. To save you (and your hair) a headache, we came up with an easy-breezy MDC quiz to help you gauge how often you should shampoo those locks.

1. How would you describe your hair texture? 

  1. Fine
  2. Medium
  3. Coarse 

2. What is your hair type? 

  1. Oily
  2. Normal
  3. Dry/Dehydrated

3. How often do you color your hair? 

  1. Never
  2. Occasionally — I rock the ombré or dabble in some highlights from time to time.
  3. Regularly — once a month at least

4. I style my hair with: 

  1. Nothing except for a bit of styling product when I need to tame a few stray hairs
  2. I run a curling iron through a few strands to give it some body. 
  3. You name it, I use it. 

5. What’s your hairstyle of choice? 

  1. Au naturel
  2. Soft curls
  3. Stick straight


Mostly As. Every other day. Your hair is either prone to oil or isn’t being constantly treated with hair dye or heat styling tools, so washing it every other day is the best bet for you. Try a shampoo specifically for frequent washing like Linfa Age – Delicate Shampoo (see more about the brand here) to keep your locks happy and healthy. 

Mostly Bs. Two to three times a week. You’re a girl that can afford to skip a couple days in-between washes as your hair has some serious staying power. Retain those essential oils and moisture without looking like an unwashed mess by investing in a shampoo that will keep the hydro balance in your hair like this ROSE JOGHURT shampoo from the well-known company Bulgarian Rose Karlovo

Mostly Cs. Once a week. Whether it’s because of your coarse curls or because of your chronic coloring ways, your mane needs all the moisture it can get. Washing it too often can strip it of the nutrients it’s so desperate for, so keep the washing to a minimum. Use shampoo for dry hair like Intensive Nourishing shampoo from Bottega di LungaVita in between washes to keep it looking fresh and lovely!
