Here’s How to Spot the Difference Between Lice and Dandruff

Here’s How to Spot the Difference Between Lice and Dandruff Although lice and dandruff both cause itching, that’s where the similarities between the two end. Take a break from itching and let's take a good look at your hair. 

How often you wash your hair , it seems, boils down to personal preference. "Then, you must consider your hair type, texture, scalp condition, damage, and the style you wear," said Kevin Mancuso, hairstylist and global creative director for Nexxus.

How Much Should You Wash ? For the average person, every other day, or every 2 to 3 days, without washing is generally fine. And people are coming up with different methods to keep hair looking good. Continued. “Powders actually do work to absorb oil, so it doesn’t sit on the scalp as much

There’s perhaps no more highly contested and debated topic in the world of hair care than hair washing frequency. (It’s something most women have very strong feelings about, regardless of whether they’re daily or weekly washers.) But, spoiler alert, this is not a one-size-fits-all situation. “There’s not necessarily one universal answer to the ‘How often should you wash your hair?’ question,” says Kérastase Consulting Hair Stylist, Mara Roszak. Many things contribute to the desire or need to shampoo, including your hair type and lifestyle factors, like how often you work out, she adds. So rather than give you one easy answer, to get to the root of the matter (pun intended) we asked top stylists to weigh in on the topic and walk us through the best washing practices for several different conditions. Here's what you need to know before you suds up. Listen to this story on your Alexa or Google Home!

9 Mistakes That are Making Your Hair Look Greasy

9 Mistakes That are Making Your Hair Look Greasy Hint: Ditch the daily dry shampoo.

But how do you know when it's actually time to change your towels? Some might say every couple of weeks Truth be told, you should wash your bath towels after THREE — count 'em, THREE — uses.

This Is How Often You Should Actually Wash Your Hair , According to a Stylist. While some people choose to shampoo daily, lathering up too often can actually do more harm than good because it will strip your strands of their natural oils.

If Your Hair Is Dry...

It’s also likely thicker and coarser. That texture, coupled with the fact that it is drier, means you can go longer without washing; Roszak suggests washing dry hair three times a week. When you do wash, be sure to opt for a hydrating formula, like Dove Nourishing Rituals Coconut Hydration Shampoo, $4.89 at Target. Since you are shampooing less frequently, though, both Rhys and Roszak recommend a double shampoo, to ensure a thorough cleanse that will remove dirt, oil, and product buildup.

If Your Hair Is Oily...

Your hair is also likely on the finer side since this texture tends to be more prone to getting oily faster, says San Diego stylist and salon owner Jet Rhys. And, yes, that may mean you need to shampoo every other day or even daily. That’s totally fine, as long as you take the appropriate steps to not damage your hair in the process. First and foremost, be sure to choose a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo (which won’t strip your hair or scalp of its natural oils) that’s made for oily hair. In a somewhat cruel and ironic twist, over-shampooing can dry out your scalp, causing it to actually produce more oil, creating a vicious never-ending cycle. One that fits the bill: Kérastase Specifique Bain Divalent, $33 at Kérastase. But just as important as which shampoo you use is how you use it. “Make sure you’re shampooing your scalp, not your hair,” says Rhys. Rather than simply scrunching it into your hair, use your fingertips to really massage it into your scalp, working in circular motions; this is the best way to ensure the shampoo is getting to where it needs to go and can best remove any excess oil, not to mention other gunk and grime. And don’t worry, as you rinse the suds, the shampoo will get through the lengths and ends of your hair too.

So how often should you be washing your hair ? We sought out the expertise of celebrity hairstylist Arsen Gurgov, whose celeb clientele include Emmy Rossum and Hoda Kotb, to answer this question for us once and for all.

If you have thick hair you should only be washing your hair once a week! I know, sounds crazy! Thick hair distributes oil more evenly and actually disguises Yes, having wavy hair effects the way your hair distributes oil and how often you should wash it. You should wash your loose curls or waves

If You Work Out Frequently...

We get it, an intense sweat session is enough to make anyone want to wash the hair. If you’re working out daily (good for you!) and want to wash your hair daily too, follow the same advice as for oily hair. But, extra sweat doesn't necessarily have to mean extra washes. You may actually be able to go an extra day in between washes with the help of dry shampoo. Rather than just using it after your workout, try applying it before you exercise, focusing specifically on the roots. It will absorb the sweat as it crops up, keeping your hair from ending up a sweaty mess. Use more dry shampoo after your workout and you may just be able to skip a wash and extend your hair's style.

If Your Hair Is Color-Treated...

Breaking news: Water is hair color’s number one worst enemy. Specifically hot water, which opens the hair cuticle, the outermost layer of the hair, allowing the color molecules to slip right out. That being said, the less frequently you can wash your hair, the better you’ll be able to protect your color and the longer it will last, says Rhys. When you do wash, be sure to pick a color-protectant shampoo and conditioner specifically made for color-treated hair. We like the new Living Proof Color Care Shampoo, $29 at Sephora.  It is sulfate-free and contains a UV filter to shield your color from the sun. Another helpful trick? Dampen your hair with a leave-in conditioner prior to hopping in the shower. Coating your hair keeps it from absorbing as much water, minimizing the color-fading effects (though don’t worry, you’ll still be able to get your hair clean). You can use any leave-in conditioner, though we’re big fans of the Water Defense PreWash, $29 at Aquis, which is specially formulated for this purpose and also helps minimize damage and frizz. Try this leave-in conditioner technique not only before you wash your hair, but also before you hit the pool or ocean to safeguard your hue from the color-stripping chlorine and saltwater. Washing hair too frequently can strip it of natural oils (and color, if you dye your hair), but how often you suds up depends on your natural hair type, how often you break a sweat, and your styling preferences. Thanks to products like dry shampoo, your second-day 'do can look just as gorgeous as it does on day one.
