It’s Different For Different Hair Types

Every woman has a slightly different hair type. Whether your hair is curly or straight, oily or dry, your hair washing cadence should be customized for your hair type. For instance, if you are prone to oily hair, washing three times a week might be a good rhythm for you! If you have normal to dry hair, consider fewer than three. For curly hair, try not to wash more than twice a week to keep your hair healthy.

Your Activity Level

If you are active, your hair will likely tend to be more oily due to sweat and environmental exposure. In this case, consider using clean beauty products and washing your hair three or four times a week to resist breakouts along your neckline or back!

Choose Your Products Carefully

Modern hair products are rife with chemicals and preservatives that damage hair over time. That’s why at Urban Betty, we have committed to creating the highest quality clean beauty products we can. When washing your hair, make sure that the products you are using are chemical-free to protect the structure of your hair and keep it as healthy as you can.

What Not To Do

Here are a few things you should not do when shampooing your hair:

  • Massage your scalp instead of working the shampoo into a lather. Lathering will produce frizziness.
  • Do not skip conditioner.
  • Shampooing with hot water could damage your hair and leave it frizzy.
  • Don’t rub your hair with a towel. Instead, dab a towel against your hair.

Washing your hair is an important part of self-care; that’s why at Urban Betty, we take great care to create clean beauty products for everyone. The schedule of your hair washing and the shampoo and conditioners you use are vital parts of your weekly routine. For high-quality hair care, check out our unscented products today!
