Okay…so now that it's out in the open are you glad you can't smell me through the internet?
Haha…with that said nobody has accused me of stinking too bad…at least not to my face.
But just to clarify…I do shower…I'm just not a huge fan of it. It's mostly due to the fact that if I get my hair wet it adds another 30 minutes to my "beauty" routine.
So back in college I began to "train" my hair to skip shampoo treatments. What better time to rock greasy, nasty hair than college right?
It took a few months to make my hair look non greasy until that day 4 shampoo. Now that I've been at it for a few *ahem* years, I can get my hair to go 9 or 10 days without a shampoo. And still be in public.
A lot of dealing with the "dirty hair days" is about how you style it.
So here's my top 7 ways to wear my hair on those "dirty" days.
For the record…that photo is 3 days after shampoo day (don't mind the roots…I'm too cheap to get a touch up)
So I can easily get 3-4 days with treating my hair any differently. I just will usually brush it and curl it.
But come day 5…it needs to be up. It just doesn't have the bounce or the volume that the earlier days do.
1. My secret weapon is to tease it. Now, I can't tell you how healthy it is to tease your hair. But I do know that my hair is pretty darn healthy (according to my hair stylist, at least). Teasing tutorial here.
Before I begin any new style for the day I will always tease the crown of my head, then smooth the exposed area of the hair. I don't know why…but teasing it completely hides the fact that it's dirty.
So after the tease…here's what you can do with it.
2. The french side braid.
3. The Phony Tail. This one is an optical illusion. You can make your pony tail look longer by making two instead of one!
4. The Gibson Tuck
5. The undone bun.
6. 10 second Top Knot (this one I do all. the. time)
7. Topsy tail bun
What about you? What are your top style for skipping the shampoo? I'd love to hear it!
