If you think that you need to wash your hair every day, you should know that it can actually do more harm than good to your locks. When you wash your hair daily, you strip it of all the natural oils, which leads to breakage and brtittle strands and dries out your scalp. So, here are a few tricks that will help you skip a few days in between washes and grow healthy and shiny hair.
If you suffer from an oily scalp, you might need a thin layer of dry #shampoo on the second day already. However, if your hair doesn’t get oily that fast, you may get away with some more dry shampoo even on the third day. Moreover, there are a few #hairstyles, such as a messy bun or a sleek ponytail, that can help you hide the fact that you haven’t washed your #hair that day and both of these hairstyles look better if your hair is not freshly washed.
It can be very difficult not to wash your hair if you’ve just had a workout, but even that can be done. First of all, dry your hair with a blow dryer and, for increased volume, tip your head upside down. Then, apply some dry shampoo, massage it into your scalp to distribute it evenly and wait for the next three to five minutes. Finally, brush your hair and style it as usual.
Also, it is very important to use #styling products wisely. Hair products contribute to unwanted greasiness, so make sure not to apply any serums, balms or mousses too close to your scalp if you are trying to prolong a hair wash. Another great way to do that is to keep your hands off your hair, because the more you touch it, the more greasy it will become.
