Who has time to wash their hair every day?! Okay, at least we can all agree every day is excessive. As a recovering daily washer who can now extend a blowout until day 7ish, I’m sharing all of my best tips and tricks with you for making your blowout last as long as possible!
Dry Shampoo Immediately After Washing/Styling
Say whaaaaa? That’s right. Dry shampoo that shit right away!! Why? Don’t even give your hair a chance to get dirty/oily. So immediately after styling, go ahead and lightly spray the roots with dry shampoo (this one is perfect for Day 0!!). Not only will it help prevent any dirt/oil from creeping from your scalp onto your squeaky-clean strands, you’ll have amazing volume!
Dry Shampoo Before Bed
I used to wait until I got up in the morning to see what kind of state my hair was in before I tried to salvage it with dry shampoo. Then my hair stylist taught me to spray dry shampoo at the root all over and put my hair up in a bun to sleep. This goes back to the concept of not allowing your hair to become dirty/oily in step 1. Bonus: Letting your dry shampoo work during the night saves you time the next morning!
Keep your hands out of your hair!! The less oil and dirt can transfer from your hands to your tresses, the better. Not only is constant fidgeting awkward and unattractive (speaking from experience as a former chronic fidgeter!), it causes your hair to get oilier much faster than if you didn’t touch.
Change Your Pillow Case Every Few Days
This one can make a huge change in how long you can extend your blowout! Changing your pillowcase often is not only good for your skin, your hair will thank you, too! There will be less opportunity for dirt, oil, and dead skin to make it’s way to your hair that causes the need for a shampoo. Give your hair a clean slate and start with a fresh pillowcase on shampoo day. Then change it out every other day after that to keep your ‘do fresh!
