What Happens if you Stop Washing Your Hair?

An article came out last week on USA Today’s website exploring that question (https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2017/05/20/what-happens-if-you-stop-washing-your-hair/100120826/). One New York City dermatologist concludes that it may not be a bad thing for some people to wash their hair much less often than others, while other people may need to do it a little more often.

We have also been touching upon this topic off and on for several years here in this blog. No matter what, we recommend always using top-quality products and avoiding heavy scrubbing when you do wash your hair so you won’t strip away any essential elements or cause any damage to your hair or scalp. You can read more of our suggestions at http://newenglandassociates.com/blog/take-care-of-your-hair/.

If you are noticing any shedding or thinning of your hair, or feel that your scalp may be too oily or flaky and wonder about possible damage to your hair, it is best to see a professional right away before anything gets worse. At New England Associates® we can show you what everything looks like under a powerful microscope and help you with suggestions about what to do to solve potential problems. This free and easy evaluation and consultation is available in-person at our locations, but if you cannot get to us, you can contact us to find out which of our HairStart® products online may be good for you to order by mail and try at home.
