5. Myth or Truth: I’ve heard that you shouldn’t wash your hair every day. Is that really true, especially during the summer?

Truth: Well, this is a tough one! It really depends upon the type of hair. If it’s oily, then yes, you need to wash your hair frequently. If it’s been chemically treated, you should wash it less often. Don’t forget that you can wet your hair and use conditioner and not use shampoo to keep your locks looking fresh.
