“How Often Shall I Wash My Hair?” (1911 Hair-care Advice)



There is a lot of differing advice on how often to wash ones hair in old beauty books, but this article from The Woodbury’s Book (1911) contains fairly standard suggestions. (Some other books do advise washing once a month, but companies like Woodbury’s began promoting more frequent washing during this period in order to sell more soap!)

While an article about washing the hair, a significant portion discusses hair brushing. This is because to the Victorians and Edwardians, brushing was an important part of “cleaning” the hair. It not only distributed the oils, but also helped to remove any dust or other particles. (Women at this time often washed their brushes daily, so that only clean brushes were used on their hair. I can attest that this does help extend the time between shampooing, as some oil is removed by the brush.)
