When I thought about writing this post, I debated with myself if I really needed to share my hair washing routine with the world. Yes, yes I do. I am basically morally obligated to tell you this. Haha! 😛 Since we are talking about hair today, I figured I would share some crazy hair photos from my modeling this summer in Milan (shot by the amazing Attilio Cusani!)
Okay let’s get down to it. I only wash my hair 2 – 3 TIMES A WEEK. Max. I can hear you now… “Eeeewwwww! You only wash your hair 2 – 3 times a week? Nasty.” Okay now, it’s not nasty!! Let me explain.
The more you wash your hair, the greasier it gets. So if you wash it every day, your hair will become accustomed to getting its daily wash and actually end up being oilier than before. So, it is better to wash your hair every few days, and get your scalp used to less frequent washing.
Another reason you should only wash your hair a few times a week is to keep it healthy. The more you wash your hair with harsh chemicals (found in shampoo and conditioner,) the more damaged it will become. It is really good to let the natural oils in your hair condition it a bit!
Keep in mind that this is what works best for me! All hair types are different and the ideal hair-care routine changes based on your hair type. I have quite dry and fluffy hair so I find that mine looks better when I wash it every few days.
To make sure my hair stays soft, I also like to do my Coconut Oil Hair Mask once every few weeks.
There you have it, friends! What is your hair care routine?! Tell me in the comments below!
