Why is washing your hair daily bad?

People say that it's bad for your hair if you wash it every day. They also say that it causes dandruff. Is that true?

I'll risk the consequences, I'll wash my hair every day. If you have dandruff, use dandruff shampoo.

It can scraps the natural oils off and possibly damage the color. And it very well could cause dandruff due to your scratching the dirt from your head and might scratch skin.

It certainly does not cause dandruff. That's a myth. Many people wash their hair daily and their hair is healthy. It just depends on your hair type. If you have greasy hair, wash daily. If not, every other day would be fine.

Dandruff is just when your scalp is really dry, from what I understand, it's more genetic, but can also be caused from excessive hair products (gel, mousse, etc)

Oh, alright. How many times a week do you think is right to wash your hair?

Shampoo and conditioning once a day is not considered excessive

It can cause dandruff because the over usage of chemicals in shampoo can break down skin

I wash my hair everyday, and haven't noticed any damages to it. The only thing I hate about doing it everyday, is how long it takes me to dry it and straighten it, because of it's length. I just don't feel "clean enough" if I don't wash it everyday. But, that's just my opinion.

It's ok to wash it every day if you have oily skin and hair. Or if you are dirty and sweaty from exercise or hard work it's a good idea to get the stink washed off of you. If you have dry, long or colored hair use the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair type. That should solve the problems. I have long hair and I wash it when it needs cleaned.

That is a myth spread by unhygeinst people. Don't fall prey to them clean or wash your when ever you fell to wash and clean them. For dandruff use antydandruff shampoos.

It will get rid of natural oils that can make your hair thicker, stronger and shinier.

I wash my hair everyday and it's healthy. But my hair is more oily than it is dry, so that's probably why. If you have dry hair, it's a bad idea. But if your hair is oily, or you exercise everyday and it gets sweaty, then you should wash it daily.

many shampoos are filled with a cocktail of different chemicals. these chemicals strip your hair of its natural oils. the natural oils in your hair are ESSENTIAL for healthy hair, over time, your hair may try to compensate and tend to over produce too much oil. to keep your hair from looking overly oily or greasy, try using a dry shampoo or baby powder (it absorbs oil) at the roots.

it's all a lot of opions from misinformed people. today shampoos aren't harsh and damaging,a shampoo and conditioner developed for daily use will leave you with a clean and healthy scalp,and shiny,strong hair. just use finger pads, not nails to clean your scalp, snd don't twist, wring, or stretch your wet hair,and hair dryers are fine if you make sure you aren't using excessive heat. hope this helps.
