This is less about the cleanliness of hair and more about the colour. Purple shampoo is the ultimate antidote to brassy hair, giving dull, blonde locks a quick refresh. However, blondes don't need to use a violet-tinted formula every time they shampoo. Instead, it should be used only when orange or yellow tones start to appear. (An everyday shampoo can be used the rest of the time!) Depending on the blonde you’re working with, this could mean using purple shampoo once per week or even once per month. Whatever the case, we recommend INVIGO Blonde Recharge Cool Blonde Shampoo. It should be massaged into wet hair, left on for three to five minutes, then rinsed out thoroughly for best, brass-busting results.
How Often to Wash Hair for Growth?
There's a myth that dirty hair grows faster, so we hear this question a lot, but the truth is that a shampooing routine isn't going to make a difference to the hair’s growth cycle. For those hoping for longer locks, the best thing to do is wash to suit their hair type, and keep the lengths well nourished to avoid breakage through the ends. A consistent hair care routine and patience are the real secrets to growing out hair, so keep your scalp clean and fresh in the meantime.
Is it Bad to Wash Your Hair Everyday?
We know what you're wondering: Will daily washing make oily hair worse? For years, rumors have circulated that you can teach your scalp to be less greasy with less frequent shampooing. However, there's no real, scientific evidence to back this up, and for those who want to (or feel they need to), it's absolutely fine to shampoo on a daily basis. They simply need to make sure they’re using a formula that isn't going to strip away natural scalp oils. All of the shampoos in the Wella Professionals care collection are formulated to be kind to the skin, and to maintain a healthy scalp.
