Thou Shalt Not Shampoo Thy Hair Every Day
"No shampooing every day," Townsend warned. "It's too stripping on your scalp."
Here's what happens when you soap up: your scalp has to overproduce oil, which then makes your hair feel greasy, and you want to wash it again. It's a cycle, and once you break it, your grooming routine will get much easier.
Townsend recommends using shampoo every other day (or two days if you can stretch it!). "The rule is even if you get in the shower and wet your hair, massage your scalp just like you would with shampoo — but without the actual shampoo there," he's said. "That should be enough to break up the oils and let them slide down the hair cuticle where they're most needed."
