Shampoo. Rinse. Repeat. Day after day… Ugh!
Are you the type of gal that washes your hair every day, or every other day? If so, you could be doing your hair more harm than good by shampooing your strands every day. Not washing your hair every day finally gives your scalp a chance to breathe! It’s time to finally switch up your hair care routine, and skip washing your hair. Here’s our complete guide to not washing your hair and still looking fabulous.
Why Not Washing Your Hair Every Day Is Good for You
No matter what your hair type is, not washing your hair every day can benefit everyone! After you stop washing your hair every day, you will notice your hair get shinier, your scalp become less dry and your split ends improve!
Still not convinced that not washing your hair every day is good for you? Here are a few more reasons why washing your hair every day could be doing more harm than good:
- It strips your hair of its natural oils.
- It fades your hair color fast.
- It’ll dull your shine.
- It causes split ends and dry hair.
- It’s expensive.
- It causes product buildup.
- It costs you more time.
Here’s How To Get Away With Not Washing Your Hair
We know that in this Texas heat, it can be difficult finding ways to not wash your hair every day or not looking like a greasy mess. But, believe it or not, there are a few tips and tricks you can do to skip washing your hair, and still look fabulous!
We know that everyone’s hair is different, and some people tend to have more issues with oilier hair than others. So, customize this hair care routine to whatever works best for YOU. If you can go days without washing your hair, and still rock beach waves or a tousled look – great! If not, that’s okay too! Style your hair into a chic braided look, or use a cute hat to your benefit.
Day 1-3: Start Off with Styled Straight or Curly Hair
Starting off with styled straight or curly hair will make it easier for you to style your unwashed hair over the next couple of days. We prefer starting day one off with straight hair or a blow out, so you can rock this look for a couple of days with the help of a little dry shampoo.
Tip: Go as as long as you can without using dry shampoo. If you use too much, too often, it can create product buildup and have your roots looking powdery.
If you’re over the straight-hair look, grab a curling iron and add some beach waves. Finish off this look with some texturizing spray or finishing salve and you’ll look as good as new!
Tip: Hands off! The less you touch your hair, the less oily it will get.
Day 3+: Throw It in A Braid or Updo
This is where things can get a little tricky. If your hair is still looking clean and has volume, hold off on throwing it in a braid or updo. You can still rock those fabulous beach waves! But if you’ve gotten to the point where you can’t stand how your hair looks, it’s time to try out some braids or a messy ponytail.
Tip: Accessorize with a cute hat, or some hair pins!
