Washing your hair every day is seen, by many, as an essential. Without a daily hair-wash people can feel that their hair becomes limp and, more annoyingly, too greasy. Unfortunately, a hair-wash every day does take up a lot of time, and is not that good for our hair.
It may feel strange at first, but we didn’t always wash our hair every day. In the not-so-distant past, some people used to wash their hair once every one or two weeks. So how did they manage it? It may not last for two weeks without a wash, but if you want to try and go longer between washes (and still look great), here are a few tips on how to do it.
Try dry shampoo
When you’re approaching the point when your hair is looking a bit greasy, and you feel like you could do with washing it soon, try spraying some dry shampoo on your hair.
Spray your roots and the top half of your hair and then brush it out. This will add volume and get rid of a lot of the grease that may have built up as you’re first ‘training’ your hair to go longer without a wash.
Try to keep it back
Hair that it around your face tends to gets greasy quicker (and is tempting to play with!). When you’re training your hair to go longer without the wash, use hair clips or beautiful headbands to keep it off your face.
Put it up
Up hairstyles like buns and ponytails are great for hair that is being trained to go longer between washes. It looks styled and neat, but at the same time, it doesn’t need to be as fresh and perfect as hair that is worn loose in order to look good.
Take it slow
Most importantly for helping your hair to go longer between washes, don’t try and make it happen all at once. If you wash your hair every day, try and wash it every other day, then after a while, increase that to every three days, and so on until you’re at the point you want to be at.
True, our hair won’t always look photoshoot perfect without that daily styling, but so what?
