    Yep, This Is Actually How Often You Should Be Washing Your Hair

    Most men do it every day. Selena Gomez does it twice a week. Kim Kardashian goes a full five days without it. (And we don't even want to know Sansa Stark's number.) How often you wash your hair, it seems, boils down to personal preference. Right? Not so fast. The answer to that question is murky, but can be summed up in four words: for the most part - but there are a few factors to keep in mind. (Fine, that's 14 words.) First, there's the issue of stripping your scalp of its natural oils when you overwash. "Then, you must consider your hair type, texture, scalp condition, damage, and the style you wear," said Kevin Mancuso, hairstylist and global creative director for Nexxus. Oh, and don't forget your environment. ("If you live in a polluted city, you're going to want to wash your hair more frequently than you probably do," he said) So, how often should you "do" it? We asked a handful of pros for their opinion on how frequently you should be washing your hair, so you can consider the search, well, done.

    The Queen's wedding drama revealed: the true story of the day's biggest mishap

    The Queen (then Princess Elizabeth) wore a tiara for the first time on her wedding day to Prince Phillip in 1947 –  the Queen Mary's Fringe Tiara. It is widely known that the tiara broke ahead of the ceremony, but what fans probably won't know is exactly how. The Queen told the story to the Duchess of Cambridge in 2018 while attending an exhibition of Kate's wedding dress: "The catch, which I didn't know existed, it suddenly went. And I didn’t know it was a necklace, you see… I thought I'd broken it… We stuck it all together again, but I was rather alarmed."SEE: Inside The Queen's second home Windsor Castle where she is staying amid coronavirusLoading the player...WATCH: The Queen makes first public appearance since lockdownGiven that she was about to walk down the aisle with an estimated audience of 200 million people in one of the world's most public weddings, it's no wonder that she was worried. But rather than opt for another tiara, which the Telegraph reports that the Queen Mother suggested, the Queen was adamant that she would wear the Queen Mary's Fringe Tiara, which was on loan as the 'something borrowed' from her mother.MORE: The Queen's most stunning tiaras in her personal jewellery collectionThe Queen wore Queen Mary's Fringe Tiara for her wedding in 1947Luckily, the royal jewellery house, Garrard, was on standby to help repair the broken tiara, and it was taken to the workshop under police escort to be welded back together in time for the Queen and Phillip's nuptials.The Queen Mary Fringe Tiara was originally a fringe necklace that belonged to the Queen Mother's husband's mother, Queen Mary. Apparently, Mary liked to customise her jewellery and 26 years after her wedding in 1893, she called upon Garrard to recreate it as a tiara.Princess Anne wore Queen Mary's Fringe Tiara for her wedding in 1973It was also worn by the Queen's daughter Princess Anne on her wedding day in 1973.
