The Long & Short of It: How Often Should You Wash Your Hair

Treat tresses right by trying a new hair-washing routine.

There’s something that feels almost therapeutic about washing your hair, right? The warm water. The shampoo suds working their magic as you massage them through your strands. If you really think about it, washing your hair is actually a self-care moment that you so deserve. But how often should you wash your hair? And have you ever stopped to wonder if your hair-washing routine is really working for your hair type? (These are seriously the types of questions we ponder and research on the regular.)

No matter where you land on the vastly gorgeous and diverse hair type spectrum — stick straight, tight coils, loose waves, color treated and every type in between — your hair is not a one-size-fits-all deal. And neither should your hair-washing routine.

Whether you’re washing hair once a week or washing hair every day, we’re going to break down what works best and what doesn’t.

OGX Extra Strength Refreshing Scalp + Tea Tree Mint Shampoo with peppermint & witch hazel

Fine & Flat, Let’s Tackle That

To give fine and flat hair a new lease on life, try a shampoo like OGX Tea Tree Mint Extra Strength. This power washer is going to help keep your scalp looking fresh without stripping its essential oils. While it’s not exactly bad to wash your hair every day, we recommend every other day.

OGX Thick & Full + Biotin & Collagen Shampoo with vitamin B7 and hydrolyzed wheat protein for thicker, fuller hair

Va-Va-Voom Volume

Going for the bombshell lewk? Boost the volume with OGX Biotin & Collagen Shampoo, a hair thickening shampoo that’s blended with, you guessed it, biotin and collagen. Thicker hair tends to mask oil better than other hair types so you can get away with washing it once or twice a week. Hello, extra 20 minutes of sleep.

OGX Renewing + Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo for strong, shiny & silky hair

Silky Hair, Don’t Care

OK, actually we do care. If your hair errs on the normal side (meaning it doesn’t fall into any other hair type category), keep it looking lush with a healthy hair shampoo like OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo. Not only does it smell amazing, but it helps to strengthen and protect your locks. We’ve been programmed to wash our hair every day, but you can go ahead and skip a day in between.

OGX Nourishing + Coconut Milk Shampoo with coconut oil & ultra whipped egg white protein for wavy hair

Let’s Get Wave-y

Loose curls and beach waves deserve a little extra TLC to keep them looking soft and smooth. That’s why we recommend a shampoo for wavy hair that’s infused with nourishing coconut oil like OGX Coconut Milk Shampoo. To prevent your waves from sagging and feeling heavy, wash your hair every other day.

OGX Extra Strength Damage Remedy + Coconut Miracle Oil Shampoo with vanilla bean extract for weak or damaged hair

Not-So-Damaged Goods

Damaged hair happens to the best of us. Coloring, relaxers and other tough treatments can all contribute to weakened hair shafts, split-ends and breakage. Help restore your strands with OGX Coconut Miracle Oil Shampoo, a shampoo for weak or damaged hair. Do your hair (and scalp) a solid and let it breathe for two days in between washes.

OGX Quenching + Coconut Curls Shampoo with coconut oil, sweet honey & citrus oil for curly hair

Curly Gurlies

Your arch-nemesis Frizz has nothing on OGX Coconut Curls Shampoo, a curl-quenching shampoo for curly hair that leaves your coils bouncing to perfection. It’s kind of like a tropical vacation in your shower every time you use it, which should be about every three days.
