If you’ve ever slathered mayo onto your tresses in the hope of shinier hair, or plastered a pimple with Colgate, you’re not alone – ask most beauty-savvy individuals, and they’ll probably agree that these methods work. Or do they?

“Hair is self-cleaning.”
We all know someone who claims that washing your hair is pointless – that if you leave it long enough, your hair will start to clean itself. Sounds unpleasant – although quite a time saver – but should we be taking heed?
False (sort of.) Your hair won’t clean itself, but the oils on the strands will reach a balance – in short, your hair won’t be as horribly greasy as it gets after a few days of neglect, but not as clean as when it’s freshly washed. However, this isn’t particularly good for your hair (or your hygiene!) so stock up on your favourite shampoos.
