(Seriously, this add it too funny.)
Well I did it Starting with January 23 I only washed my hair on Saturdays. (You can read the original post here. it was inspired by this post by The GOOD Chanel.) It was not life changing, but it was a challenge.
Each week went something like this:
Sunday - clean, almost dry/frizzy. I find it odd that I never noticed how frizzy my clean hair is.
Monday - still looking clean, easier to fix, less frizz: rinse at night.
Tuesday - still rocking the clean look: rinse at night
Wednesday - the front still looking clean, I need to straighten my bangs so they don't stick together funcky, but I need to do that anyway. The back is starting to feel a bit oily: rinse at night.
Thursday - time to bust out the french braid, but honestly it wouldn't stick in the braid if I didn't have all the oil to help me out, so that is perk: rinse at night.
Friday - I am so ready to wash my hair, but I let it be. The best plan is to curl it, and the curl hold like I have moose in. I can't decide if that is gross: rinse at night.
Saturday - french braid, high bun, and thank goodness for headbands. It is time to wash my hair and thankfully it is Saturday so I get to!! (Insert happy dance.)
My take aways:
- It is very possible to do once a week and people will not notice or think I am gross.
- I can would really prefer to only go 5 days not 7 days between washing. By Friday I was very ready to wash my hair.
- Headbands, hats, the french braid, and buns are all fabulous things when attempting to use less shampoo.
- At some point I seemed to have forgotten to use conditioner. I think I will use less and less of it as I go to the every 5 day plan.
- I will save money washing my hair less, but I just can't make the jump to never, or even to just weekly.
- Ultimately, I think washing my hair is a total creature comfort, and I am very grateful that I have the luxury of doing it.
