But it is also important to prevent your hair from drying due to excessive shampooing. So it is essential to use a shampoo suitable for your hair type.
wash your hair 2 or 3 times a week depending on how soon they become greasy. Opt for ‘clear’ shampoos rather than the ‘milky’ ones as the latter are high in moisturizing agents.
If You Have Oily Hair,
