More and more, we’re hearing about the benefits of not shampooing daily. Yep, it sounds crazy but you can actually make it work—leading to better hair days and less time getting ready in the morning. Win-win!
But, if I’m being honest, it took awhile for me to get on board with the idea of not washing my hair every day. I kept telling myself all the reasons it wouldn’t work, only to realize that once I gave it a try it would be the best hair decision I’ve made in a long time. I’ve found that not shampooing every day keeps my hair looking vibrant and fresh longer, holds style better, and even gives my hair some natural shine and definition.
It took some trial and error of how to perfect a new weekly hair routine, but here’s how I get the most out of my wash and non-wash days:
I only dry my hair once or twice a week, but when I do I make sure to use great heat protection. The Royal Blowout and Supershine Moisturizing Crème by Oribe is a great way to get my hair protection and shine that lasts until my next shampoo. I also use Bumble and bumble’s All Style Blow Dry Cream to help with the oil production for the days following. Once my hair is dry, I add in Dry Texturizing Spray by Oribe to give my hair a little help when curling or styling. The added texture helps lock in any curls before I finish it with Superfine Strong by Oribe.
My life is so much easier now that I’ve found a time-saving way to get my best head of hair, but not everything works the same way for everyone. Hair texture, oil production and needs can vary so widely, so if you need help finding the best solution for you, reach out or stop by the salon!
