3 Ways Unwashed Hair can Damage your Mane

If you stop washing your hair, the natural oils, sebum, hair products from your scalp, and even air pollution all build up on your hair. A clean scalp is a healthy scalp, hence it is important to wash them regularly with a gentle shampoo on a regular schedule, once or twice a week. The more you moisturize your hair and scalp with water, the healthier your hair will be. Hair growth flourishes from a clean, healthy scalp.

Here are 3 ways unwashed hair can damage your mane:

1. Your Scalp will get Filled with Dirt and Dust

Your Scalp will get Filled with Dirt and Dust

We all know that if we stop washing our hair, our hair will get really dirty, and there is no doubt about it. If the cleansing frequency is not often enough, the dirt and fragments could lead to discomfort. But dirt isn’t the only thing that you will have to deal with once you stop washing your hair. You may also see signs of pollution in your hair and scalp.

The hair and skin are the first things exposed to pollution, but you can protect your skin from various lotions, creams, or other treatments. On the other hand, your hair can’t be saved because you cannot apply creams or lotions on them. Soot, dust, smoke, and even some pollutants like car exhaust fumes can make a home in your hair and onto your scalp, making for a scratchy and irritated head. This problem will likely be even greater for you if you live in a big city.

2. Your Hair may Stop Growing

Your Hair may Stop Growing

You may have a runny nose when you have a cold, and all of the exasperating symptoms that come with congestion. In the same way, your scalp can get clogged, but it’s not from anything viral. The overuse of hair products, combined with not washing them away with shampoo, can lead to buildup which leads to a congested scalp.

This also results in hair loss, when your scalp is dealing with too much of that buildup. Although you’re not exactly going to go bald, it should aid as a clear message to cleanse your hair. You can also take a break from dry shampoo and other hair products for the time being.

3. Your Hair will Smell Bad

Your Hair will Smell Bad

Your hair will start to smell pretty gross when you stop washing it. While not everyone who skips washing their hair will develop a foul odor, those who do may have to bear smelling like sour milk — seriously. Hair traps moisture, which in turn collects bacteria. You may get a tinge of a mildew scent in just a week or, worse, a sour smell originating from the top of your head.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
