How Often should I Shampoo Fine Hair?

This one’s a tricky one as it really depends on your individual hair type. While you may have generally fine hair, you may also suffer from excess oiliness or severe dehydration, so may need to shampoo less or more.

If you have oily roots, shampoo once a day. As long as you use a nourishing treatment, such as the PK Prep Perfecting Spray post-towelling, your hair won’t suffer damage from the constant washing. Plus, while you may think you can get away with using dry shampoo on your locks, most of them will actually cause your delicate fine locks to be weighed down and lose their volume. Not exactly the result you were after.

If you have parched hair that doesn’t get oily, try switching up your cleansing routine to once every other day. This will ensure your hair does not dry out from the water or heat, but also help to keep it clean and healthy. Try adding in a hydrating mask once a week too, such as the System Professional Hydrate Mask.
