Spring is a natural time for cleansing and organizing your life and the space around you—which means it’s time to clean out the clutter from your winter hibernation.

The Gray Hair Debate: To Dye or Not to Dye, that Is the Question

April 09, 2021

In 1956, Shirley Polykoff coined the ad slogan “Does she … or doesn’t she” for Clairol, removing the stigma of dyeing one’s hair and unleashing millions of women to openly and confidently choose what color they wanted their hair to be.

Many beauty experts say that it’s okay to skip your hair washing after a workout. Rinsing with water may be enough. In addition to saving time, skipping your post-workout hair washing every once in a while can actually be beneficial for your scalp health.

Scrubbing too often could disrupt your scalp’s pH and cause dryness, which could lead to uncomfortable flakes and itchiness. Conversely, you don’t want to skip too many shampoos — because, besides smelling, you may encounter scalp buildup, which can block new hair growth and cause other issues.
