Dirty hair itself does not directly age your skin, but it can indirectly contribute to skin ageing by transferring oil and dirt from your hair to your face, which can clog pores and lead to acne breakouts. Additionally, if you don't wash your hair regularly, any bacteria or fungi on your scalp can spread to your face and cause irritation or infection. This can lead to inflammation, which over time can contribute to skin ageing. It's important to maintain good hygiene habits and keep both your hair and skin clean to prevent these issues.
Let's put an end to the old school myth that you shouldn't wash your hair often. I always advise my clients to wash their hair when necessary with a quality, sulphate-free shampoo that is recommended by professionals.
Hair tends to get dirty and accumulate dust and pollution, particularly if you have thick hair. Furthermore, it is often in close contact with our skin and even our pillow cases, which can cause skin breakouts, lumps, bumps, and premature ageing.
To avoid these issues, it is best to wash your hair every 2-3 days, or as often as necessary. Additionally, make sure you use a sulphate-free shampoo suitable for your hair type and change your pillow cases often. Doing this will help keep your hair clean, healthy, and looking its best!
