Green Your Hair Care: The Shampoo Sham

Posted Oct 12 2009 10:02pm

Shampoo.bottles Last winter we recommended a few green shampoos. This week we're offering more tips about environmentally responsible hair care.

T ip #1: Wash Less

Washing your hair every day can be automatic. But like many habits, it’s a practice invented and reinforced by advertising. The truth is, daily shampooing can strip hair of its natural oils.

If you’re a daily washer, you may notice that missing a day causes your hair to get greasy. That’s because your glands are used to secreting oil to make up for those daily scrubbings. But if you shampoo less, you'll produce less oil, and will be able to go longer between washes. Plus, you'll use less product and save water and money.

Tell us: How often do you wash your hair?
