Do you know hair training?
When you have hair that gets greasy quickly, it's not always easy to find the motivation to wash it frequently. Especially when they are long and difficult to style, it can be said that this is a real chore. What if there was a way to teach our hair to clean itself? Well, imagine that this is completely possible thanks to a technique: hair training.
This method, which is buzzing on TikTok, consists of spacing out the frequency of your shampoos, by “training” your hair to naturally regulate its sebum production. A bit on the same principle as a sebum cure, the idea will be to postpone as much as possible the day when you have to wash your mop of hair. A way to give new habits to his scalp, which will begin to produce much less oil on its own.
As a follower of this trick explains in a video that has gone viral, in order to observe long-term results, you should not be afraid of the very beginning of drastically reducing the washing days. In her case, she went from washing her hair every 4 days to only once a month. This implies the time that the scalp adapts, having to accept to live with its oily hair and to be violent not to spin in the shower to shampoo it.
But what do the hair training experts think? Several trichologists interviewed by Glamor UK recognize that washing your hair less often can prevent it from getting greasy too quickly. However, they want to be more skeptical about the duration of the process. Waiting more than a month before the next shampoo seems a little excessive to them: "You will have to end up washing your hair at some point because natural oils and environmental pollutants will eventually accumulate, your scalp will itch and your hair will become dull,” one warns, when another alert on the formation of bad odors: “The scalp contains apocrine sweat glands, which produce a protein-rich sweat that has a tendency to develop a particularly foul odor. Apocrine glands are the same glands found in the armpits and pubic area."
According to specialists, poor hair hygiene can have disastrous consequences: itching, irritation, flaking, hair loss... these are all risks that should not be overlooked.
