It is always advisable to use a mild shampoo whichever hair type you have. Oily hair should be washed only once a day maximum while dry hair needs fewer washes.
- Activities and Interests
If you love sports and you have oily hair, it would be better for you to shower and wash your hair after practice or a game. If you are a lifeguard or just someone who loves the beach, protect your hair from the sun. Moisturize your hair by using conditioners, oils, and by drinking lots of water.
