Perfect time to give this a try…

Since we are all in a self-quarantine situation, I had an idea. Really, it’s the best time to give it a try if you have ever thought about it before.

What are you talking about, Kirstie, I can hear you asking?

If you have been around for a while then you know that I do NOT wash my hair everyday; I used to but not anymore. I generally wash my hair every FOUR days (Wednesdays and Saturdays to be exact). Although, sometimes our schedule has to be taken into consideration and that might change my schedule, but you get my drift.

I actually follow one blogger in particular who only washes hers once a week.

There are several convincing arguments to giving this a try if your interested. Let me be clear, I’m not saying you should or that you have to but just in case you want to here ya go…

I can hear you now…Kirstie, you always are on here talking about this and honestly, it really gross.

Just hear me out…

I know this goes against conventional wisdom because depending on our hair type our hair can get dirty and our first instinct is too wash it. However washing too much can…

  • strip your hair of its natural conditioning agents that our scalp is designed to provide. It can also force those sebum glands to over produce oil eventually causing a build up and oily hair.
  • it can cause your scalp’s natural PH balance to be thrown off inviting bad bacteria and fungi to take over causing inflammation
  • cause breakage because washing too often will dry your hair out causing too much stress on each strand wearing them down to the point of breaking.
  • be the cause of lifeless hair. Maybe no matter what you do your hair looks dead and dull.

What if you have greasy hair?

I mean this is a legit problem and one of the main reasons that we wash daily.

We wash it because it’s oily and we want clean fresh hair. However, the more we wash the more our scalp produces even more oil to replace what has been washed away. Then we are back to having to wash it again. It’s a cycle.

Dry hair girls

we really do have it easier in this situation.

We are naturally just less oily because I mean, we have dry skin, and our pores produce less sebum, or oil.

It is REALLY important for us to NOT wash everyday because our hair will become dry and damaged quickly.

So, what can we do

{and this is where our self-quarantine situation comes in handy}

The first step {and the main one really}…is to extend your hair washing

The more you do it the easier it will become and what better time to do it than when you aren’t supposed to be around people anyway.

When you get your hair trained, it’s magical.

I’m going to be honest with you girls…it will free up you life like you can’t even imagine!!

Meet your new best friend…dry shampoo

I LOVE LOVE dry shampoo.

It is my very best friend and we will never break up.

I use it religiously and it is the main reason why I can go four days between washes {along, with the fact that I have trained my hair to go that long.}.

For the most part, the HASK company makes some awesome dry shampoo. I have tried several and love them all. Below is a post I wrote about their Monoi Coconut Dry Shampoo, and I have linked it in case you want to read.

Stay tuned because a new post on a NEW FAVORITE is coming…
