Anyone who has ever sat in my chair has received a lengthy lecture on why dirty hair = great hair! Here are the main points as to why I think dirty hair is best!
- It lets the natural oils come in and protect the hair from the elements (sun, wind, dry air, environmental ickyness)
- It requires MUCH less work! Yes, if you don't have to blow-dry that saves mucho minutes! Learn how to only fluff!
- It makes you wear your hair a different way every single day. When you wake up with natural, I-slept-on-good-dreams-last-night hair... it makes you go with that extra volume in the crown or side pony and mermaid waves.
- It is FAR more healthy! Yes, all that washing, drying, hot tool circles make your hair age, FAST!!
So, how long should you go between washes? Well, that is a work in progress. If you are currently washing every single day and you skipped a day in between, then you'd be washing 1/2 as much! That is a 50% improvement to start! The answer is wash as little as possible. Rinse and condition if necessary in between but please, no shampoo!
