How often should I shampoo my hair?...understanding the dangers of shampooing to often! by Paul Kenneth


There is a large believe that hair has to be shampooed every day. This is a huge misconception! Actually once or twice a week is more than sufficient. Even for those who are avid exercise enthusiast or people with oily hair. Remember the sun is the biggest cause of hair damage, then followed closely behind by too frequent shampooing. Customers are unaware of the cause and effect of every day shampooing.

Frequent shampooing strips' all the hair's natural oils along with removing its much needed moisture. When this happens the hair becomes porous,dry, brittle and dull. Each one of these conditions, interfere with all chemical procedures. Whether done at home ( which can be disastrous) or within the salon. The damage becomes extensive over time. When hair is wet it becomes extremely snarly and straw like feel when dry. This, then becomes challenging to comb through. adding more damage by breaking hair while combing or brushing. In the finish styling of your hair, it will look very frizzy, and dull. The coloring portion also becomes challenging. If not careful you'll get uneven deposit of color leaving a spotty look to the finished product. Hair can also go darker than desired along with quick fading of color.

These are also some of the more common problems that take place. That's why the client consultation is so important, one of our question will be: HOW OFTEN DO YOU SHAMPOO? By shampooing http://www.pksalon.com/store/shampoo.html#leader1 once or twice a week you start to eliminate the problems. Using professional products makes a huge difference. Since the most common ingredient in store bought shampoo is table salt. Salt make less expensive shampoo thicker and cost effective.

Frequent shampooing stimulates the sebaceous (oil) glands on the scalp. By over cleansing the scalp your body gets tricked into thinking its dry so the oil glands go into overdrive and produce excessive oil on the scalp. Now this is when the merry go round starts with over shampooing and excessively oily scalp and hair. Brushing your hair with a natural bristle brush is a fantastic way to help spread the oil down the hair strand. The hair that is away from the scalp (mid-legnth and ends) needs the oil and moisture to stay healthy and strong. If the scalp environment is not cleansed properly this is when further problems can occur such as dry flaky buildup and dandruff.

We are a strong proponent of conditioning treatments especially keratin treatments and deep treatments. You need to put back into the hair what we are taking out by shampooing and other stresses: mechanical or chemical. By doing moisture and reconstructive treatments www.pksalon.com you are only improving the hairs condition http://www.pksalon.com/store/shampoo.html#leader3  to a certain extent. Cutting your hair helps more than any other treatment. By snipping off damaged dry ends the hair will have more bounce, shine and style more easy. Once the damage is cut off you need to treat the hair gently so the damage and dryness does not come back to an extreme case.
