Can I reduce the number of latherings to 2?
All hair, not just problematic or textured hair, gets best results with 5 latherings.
5 latherings is better than 4, and 4 latherings is better than 3 – for all kinds of reasons.
Twice? Only if you’ve already washed that day.
Three latherings and more provide shine, moisture retention, adds nutrients, and balances, with strength and shine galore! Why not continue a good thing? If your teeth and gums are fine, do you stop flossing? Carry on, and if time doesn’t permit, I guess doing your best is the best you can do. Having said that, if you are not satisfied with the results of fewer lathers, or start to have problems, the number of latherings will be the first thing to change/correct.
