“Oily hair gets a bad rap, but the oil your scalp produces is vital to healthy, shiny hair. Despite what shampoo commercials lead you to believe, washing your hair can be a key contributor to a bad hair day,” she said.
The dermatologist also said how often one washes their hair is a very personal choice. “Most people don’t need to wash their hair daily, or even every other day.”
Emphasising the need to choose the right shampoo, Dr Sarin said, “If you have dandruff or scalp that is super oily, making you uncomfortable the next day, you can wash your hair every day. It is more important to choose the right shampoo if you wash your hair every day.”
According to the dermatologist, people with oily scalp can shampoo every day and those with dry scalp can wash their twice or thrice a week.
