However great it feels to have freshly washed andstyled hair, it can be time consuming and a lot ofeffort. While some people can go days withoutwashing it, others have to dig out the shampoo andconditioner every day to keep it looking fresh andshiney.
But how often should we actually be washing ourhair?
According to stylish Julian Farel there's no set rule and everyone's hair is different but lots ofus should be cutting back, reports RSVP Live. He claims our hair will actually be less greasy ifwe cut back on how often we use our favourite shampoos.
He said: "If you shampoo every day, it will strip your scalp of all its natural oils and can lead todry, brittle hair." He recommends washing your hair every two or three days, but there areexceptions to this.
Celebrity stylist Paul Cucinello told Women's Health that if your hair is badly damaged from toomuch heat styling, you need to take extra care of it and shampoo only once or twice a week.
The same goes for dry hair but you can still condition your hair without shampooing it asregularly as every other day. If you've been working out and are worried about your hair beingsweaty, you can rinse it with just water and it will still feel clean.
Those with oilier hair can shampoo "every other day" - but don't shampoo every day unlessyour hair looks greasy by the early evening. Stylist Jenny Cho told InStyle: "When conditioning, make sure to keep product on just the ends to avoid adding to the problem."
Try to use a shampoo that's designed for your hair type, whether that's a moisturising shampoofor dry hair, a repairing shampoo for damaged hair or a gentle shampoo for coloured hair.
