Where Natural Hair is The Norm!
Have you ever heard that using the same shampoo for a long time will cause your hair to stop responding to it? We want to know, it is true? Should we swap out shampoos or put them in rotation so our hair doesn’t get used to them? Let’s see what the experts have to say about this.
According to Paradi Mirmirani, MD assistant professor of dermatology at the University of California, San Francisco, “You don’t need to practice shampoo rotation to keep your hair clean. But if you’ve recently started coloring your hair or increased your use of hot tools, it might be a good idea to switch to a more moisturizing shampoo. Otherwise, stick with your favorite as long as you love it.
So it’s official, we do not need to practice shampoo rotation to keep our hair clean, but am I the only one who finds that statement to be a bit vague? What about the other things shampoos do besides keeping our hair clean?! Should we rotate when looking for other benefits in a shampoo?
Weigh in NatSun! Do you practice shampoo rotations with excellent results? Have you ever had a product stop working in your hair? Do you think the above statement is a myth or fact? Will shampoo (or any styling product for that matter) stop working with prolonged use?
