Written By:

Sometimes, we are all too lazy to wash our hair. And that inevitably leads to greasy hair. But is greasiness good for your hair? Read on to find out more.

Washing your hair every day can be really harmful to your hair, as it strips your hair off its natural oils. This leads to the hair looking dry and brittle, which obviously makes hair have a lot of problems like hair fall and split ends, and all the other common hair problems.

Believe it or not, but leaving your hair be greasy is actually a good idea sometimes. So, the next time you feel like you're being lazy by not washing your hair and then you guilt yourself into washing your hair, think again.

It might be a good idea to let your natural oils work their way into your hair strands. Some of your lazy habits can actually be good for you. Who would have ever thought?

So, here are all the ways that keeping your hair greasy can help you.


1. Breakage:

Hair strands become weak and start breaking from the middle because of lack of oils in them. So, washing your hair less often can actually lessen breakage.


2. Split Ends:

More natural oils in the hair means fewer chances of the hair strands drying out and splitting into two, so greasiness is definitely good for the hair.


3. Brittle Hair:

Hair tends to get brittle if you wash it too much, especially if you have long hair. So, keep your hair unwashed for longer to avoid this!


4. Hair Fall:

Hair fall is one problem that all women face. Have you seen how much hair there is around the shower drain when you wash your hair? This means that washing your hair too often can actually cause hair fall.


5. Lustre:

Hair looks a lot shinier when the natural oils of the hair have played their part in your hair. So, to maintain the amazing shine and luster in your hair, wash it less often and greasy hair is not that bad after all.


6. Frizz:

Just washed hair often has the problem of being a little too frizzy. The natural oils of the scalp often act as a natural serum for the hair and hence it is okay to leave your hair greasy at times.
