Supposedly “Healthy” Hygiene Habits People Should Skip

Don’t Wash Your Hair Every Day

If you wash your hair every day, you’re doing it too often. “Washing your hair too often will strip the hair of its natural oils and can dull hair color,” says Philipp Haug, the Artistic Director of Toni & Guy International. Dermatologist Paradi Mirmirani adds that nobody needs to wash their hair every day.

When people wash their hair daily, they dry out their scalp, says Mirmirani. Over time, this prompts your glands to produce more oil, which makes your hair feel dirtier. Aim to wash your hair two to three times per week instead.
