When it comes to washing hair, it’s more about the product than it is about the technique. After all, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to lock down the lather-rinse-repeat routine—that’s something that should come naturally. However, knowing the difference between which products are well suited for your mane and which can potentially be harmful is paramount to having strong, healthy hair.
Many well-marketed shampoos out there do a great job of getting rid of dirt and grime from your hair—there’s no doubt about that. But some also include harsh chemicals that can gradually break down your hair if used too often. The key is to find the right balance of which shampoo is best for your personal hair type, as well as how frequently you should apply said shampoo. Easier said than done, right? Not exactly. If you know what to look for, the process can actually be quite simple. For proof, we turn it over to the grooming experts at Bevel, who’ve thoughtfully put together this guide that will walk you through the process of what to look for in your next shampoo, and how often you should use it.
