Can you hurt hair by washing it too much?

Asked on: 26 Aug 2009

Yes, overwashing your hair is definitely something that can damage the hair.

Basically the hair has natural oils in it and chemicals to protect it, if you wash the hair too much then you risk actually having the natural balance of the hair being damaged as a result.

This means that you should try not to wash your hair more than once a day - that is certainly ample, and in fact a couple of times a week is more than adequate; in general people wash their hair much more frequently than is necessary.
