Many people have heard that daily shampooing is the cause of hair loss. Is it really true?
Overwashing causes aging of scalp and hair.
Excessive hair washing damages the stratum corneum of the scalp and decreases the metabolism of the epidermis. This makes the scalp and hair more prone to problems. However, if you sleep with the day’s sebum, sweat, and other dirt remaining on your scalp, it interferes with cell renewal and respiration in the scalp, making it difficult for healthy hair to grow.
Furthermore, bacteria and mites, which love sebum and sweat, may multiply. In other words, while over-washing your hair is a no-no, not keeping your scalp and hair clean is also a no-no.
So what does it mean to keep your hair clean without over-washing?
