Another Rick Mosley Hair FAQ

Save time in 2015 by washing your hair less often

RMH FAQsHave you ever had a question about hair that you’re too nervous to ask? We’re here to help! We get questions from clients all of the time, so we’ve started posting responses to those we hear most frequently.

Question:

How often should I wash my hair?

Answer:

Many people think they need to wash their hair daily to keep it clean and healthy. Today, we’re here to dispel this myth, as washing your hair less often is actually better for your locks because washing dries out your hair and strips it of nutrients.

Put more time and energy into your New Year’s Resolutions to exercise and sleep more by spending less time washing, drying and styling your hair this year. All you need to do is change your routine to wash your hair three times per week. Of course everyone’s hair is different, but most hair types will adjust to this schedule quite quickly.

On off days, spray Pure Abundance Style Prep liberally onto dry hair, comb and re-style to give your hair a fresh look. If you exercise frequently, you can rinse your hair and condition it (without washing) in order to remove sweat.

Worried your hair will be greasy if you wash it less frequently?  Actually, the oil levels in your hair will adjust after a week or two. If you wash your hair daily, your body produces enough oil for that schedule. If you wash it less frequently, less oil will be produced. It also helps to comb through your hair well before washing it to help pull the oil through from your scalp to your ends, as the oil naturally helps condition your hair.

RMH FAQs
Question
:

How often should I get my hair cut and colored?

Answer:

It is hard to give a generic response to this question, as some cuts and color treatments require more maintenance than others. 

As a general rule of thumb, hair grows about half an inch per month so we suggest six to eight weeks between cuts for longer hair and four to six weeks for shorter hair.  Hair that has a precision or geometric cut (since the shape is stronger) or distinct bangs requires more frequent visits, as does hair that is heavily treated or damaged – remember cuts aren’t only for shape and looks, they also improve the overall health of your hair.

As for color, how frequently you visit depends on how different your color treatment is from your natural color, how quickly your hair grows, and the type of look you are going for.  If you have an all-over color that is completely different than your natural hair, you may have to visit us every 30-45 days to keep your roots from standing out and your color from becoming dull.  If you have basic highlights or ombre-style color (where the roots are darker than the ends), you can possibly stretch your visits out up to 90 days.

Be sure to discuss your cut and color options and with your Rick Mosley Hair stylist so he or she can make a personalized recommendation for the frequency of your visits and the Aveda products that will best help you maintain and care for your style.
