Changing my ways

15 Dec

For years I washed my hair every day.  All through high school and college.  I just didn’t feel clean unless my hair was washed because it felt so oily to me. 

Then a few years ago my hair dresser told me that if I would stop washing my hair everyday, my hair would get used to it.  So I went to every other day, still using baby powder in my hair to make it less oily.  I have since found that it does in fact look better on the 2nd day.  It styles much better.

Lately, though, I have been challenging my previous habit and trying to only wash every 3 days.  

Today is day 3.  It means I have to get creative and wear it back, but I am loving not putting so much time into it.

I find that I will even try to plan my work-outs around my hair washing schedule (’cause if it gets sweaty it must be washed then).

Do you wash every day?

    Every other day…although as I have gotten older, I’ve found that it looks better on the wash day than it does on the non-wash day…weird.

    Every other day usually. I still wet it a bit and blow dry it to get out the wrinkles!!

    Every 24 hours. It drives me crazy! My hair is also VERY oily combined with the FL humidity. I’m going to try every other day with the baby powder trick.

    My hair definitely styles better on the 2nd day. 3rd day usually means i have a ponytail.

    I used to be the same, but have just started a blog exclusively about the process of de-shampooing. You may find it useful. Or stupid. Whichever. 🙂
