How Often Should You Wash Your Hair?

A lot of us wonder what the absolute best hair washing schedule is. How often should we wash our hair? The answer is simple: it's as often as you need to! A big concern for people washing their hair too often is that their hair will get stripped of its natural oils and can even get hygral fatigue (water damage). These concerns are valid and will be addressed with a tailor-made hair washing schedule that is perfect for you.

The most important thing you want to ensure is that your scalp microbiome is healthy. If you have dandruff, an itchy scalp, an irritated scalp, sebum buildup, or clogged follicles, you'll want to change your regimen a little bit. Every time you exercise and sweat a lot, or if you're doing hair masks or things like that, it's a good idea to wash your hair with a trustworthy oil, shampoo, and conditioner right after.

The first step to a clean and thriving scalp is to apply oils. Applying the correct oils regularly - such as those found in the CRISAN Beauty Extreme Hair Strengthening Oil - can protect your hair from hygral fatigue and breakage while infusing the hair with a silk-like softness and shine. Using the CRISAN oils invigorates your scalp with many healthy ingredients that help protect it from many damaging elements and can even prevent dandruff from taking root in the first place. The terpene oils within the CRISAN Beauty formulation help stimulate hair growth on the follicular level.

The second step is to use a high-quality shampoo that is gentle enough to use for life. The best kind of shampoo to use is something that is gentle and mild and won't strip your hair entirely. A hair lover's most trusted brand of shampoo is the CRISAN Beauty hair strengthening shampoo. Formulated with aloe vera, essential oils, turmeric root, and much more, the CRISAN Extreme Hair Strengthening shampoo smells like a dream and is an effective tool in your hair care arsenal.

Lastly, when you finish washing your hair, it can be in its most delicate phase, which is where it is crucial to treat wet hair with a delicacy that prevents breakage, wear, and tear. One of the most important aspects of hair health is how you dry your hair. I recommend patting your hair dry with a microfiber cloth and using as little heat as possible. Ariana Selvaratnam - the owner of CRISAN Beauty - air dries her hair 99.9% of the time, "After my shower, I am highly aware of what my hair is going through. I gently comb it, twist it into a protective hairstyle, or let it air dry. Then I'll add just a touch of CRISAN hair oil, which helps soften the hair and make it very manageable."

If you have to blow dry your hair, try to put on a heat protectant to minimize any potentially adverse effects, or stay away from heat entirely because once you damage your hair, you can't undo that damage. Visit to shop the latest in Ayurvedic Hair and Skin Care.
