The best frequency of washing is different for everyone. It all depends on a number of factors. One is your skin type, which is determined by genetics, lifestyle and age. Your scalp’s skin type tends to correlate with your face’s skin type, specifically your t-zone. So, if your forehead, nose and chin tend toward dry, then your scalp probably is, too, and a moisturizing shampoo can help—but stick to once or twice a week to avoid over-drying the scalp. If you have an oily T-zone and scalp, you can shampoo more often (say, three times a week).Beyond skin type, consider your hair’s texture, length and density to help figure out how long the intervals should be between washing. If you have shorter, straighter, more dense hair, you could wash it every day (though you definitely don’t need to), because sebum (aka natural oils) tends

We’re quick to get rid-off make-up that we feel is causing skin-irritation or might contain chemicals that are toxic but most of the bath and body products we use during bathing and afterwards, expose us more directly to toxins in a number of ways. A lot of times they are the most significant contributors to the damage, in terms of potential hormone disrupting, cancer-causing, unregulated (and often-unlabeled in case of some Ayurvedic), toxic compounds.The level of exposure depends on how often you shower or bathe and the number of products you use, but it adds up quickly. The conventional skincare industry’s argument is that “the dose makes the poison”, a.k.a, in trace quantities these chemicals are considered “safe to use”. This argument is a weak one in this case, as the dose for most people, especially women, is very high—often

It’s meant to make you smell fresher. But scientists claim that deodorant may be doing more than just that – it could be making you ill. The active aluminum-based ingredient in deodorants temporarily plugs the sweat glands and that’s how it prevents you from perspiring. These aluminum-based chemicals are absorbed into the skin, especially if there is a nick from shaving. They propose that the harmful ingredients may increase the risk of breast cancer, since they are applied to the armpit and therefore, absorbed into an area next to the breast. Aluminum-based compounds that are applied and absorbed near the breast can cause estrogen-like effects. Since the hormone estrogen could promote the growth of breast cancer cells, it’s therefore, possible that these aluminum-based chemicals in deodorants may contribute to breast cancer. Most commercial deodorants contain aluminum. The risk of aluminum centered around Alzheimer’s, which is a degenerative

Regardless of what products we use, most of us were taught to wash our hair the same way: shampoo (rinse, lather, rinse, repeat) then conditioner. And unless we’re a co-washer, doing anything but that probably seems a little strange. Conditioning before shampoo is great for adding nourishment to fine hair without weighing it down. It also promotes a longer lasting blow dry and primes the hair before cleansing, allowing shampoo to distribute easier and more evenly. Thin hair types aren’t the only ones to benefit from swapping their bottle order. Hair that is highlighted, tangles easily after shampooing, or is prone to greasiness is also a prime candidate for a pre-shampoo conditioner. There are some best practices to keep in mind if we’re going to start this regimen. While we’d typically only use our conditioners from our ears down post  shampoo. To saturate all our hair from root-to-tip if we’re
