When people find out I only wash my hair every 5-6 days they always ask me why. Well it is pretty simple. You shouldn’t be washing your hair everyday. And my hair is naturally super frizzy and curly so when I straighten it I want to make it last for as long as possible! I decided to take a picture of how I keep it looking clean/what I do to make it all work for so long. I plan to do the same thing when I curl my hair because it is very different. But I still last the 5-6 days.
So lets just get into it. I start by letting my hair air dry because I am lazy. But also because it is better to not use heat if you don’t need to. I alway use two different serums after my hair is damp. I will be posting about those later. After my hair is super dry I got to sleep and wait until the next morning. There is nothing worse then straightening your hair when it is wet.
Day 1: Is pretty self explanitory. I just straighten it. When it is straight I am good to go. No product the first day because I want to keep it as clean as possible for as long as possible.
Day 2: I will normally just throw in a Braid so it stays out of my face. If you want a tutorial for this braid just let me know and I will do it for you guys! (that goes for any of the hair styles) I might put a tiny bit of hairspray on my braid but again I try and keep it as clean as possible.
Day 3: This day is when my hair starts to feel a bit gross. so I normally throw in some dry shampoo and section it into a half ponytail. You can see it has a bit more texture, but that is just the shampoo. It is such an easy style to do but it is so cute!
Day 4: I make sure I put in dry shampoo the night before and I will run my straightener through it and just throw on a hat. This is probably one of the easiest days!
Day 5: Depending on the week this can normally be my last day before wash. But this time around I lasted 6. So on day 5 I normally go with a ponytail or a top bun. Either or. With this ponytail I wrapped a piece of hair around it to give it a messier look. Honestly with this one, the messier the better.
Day 6: Because my hair had been up in a ponytail it had a bit of a crimp and some texture so we went with some half up space buns. I added some salt spray for added movement. And called it a day.
And just like that the week is over and it is hair washing day. Now like I said some weeks I wash it more, some I make it the full 6 days. But I really survive because of dry shampoo. I won’t lie about that. And like I said I will be making two more editions of this with curled hair and my natural hair. So look for those soon!
Which style was your favorite?
