Hair-fessions

I've always been obsessed with my hair.

From the color to the cut to its always-flat state, there is always something on my mind.

In high school, I was downright psycho about my hair. I showered and blow-dried it every single day. Even on the days when I had 2nd period swim class.

Let that sink in for a minute.

I would blow dry my hair.... to have it be soaked with greening chlorine about 2 hours later.

Seriously, I'm an idiot.

Somewhere in college, I discovered dry shampoo. It helped get rid of some of the second-day softness that plagues my baby-fine head.

Anyways. So now. I work 5 days a week, but never Monday-Friday. Anyways, I have recently been hiding a dirty little secret.

I'm no longer a daily hair washer. Even though I still feel like my hair is too "soft" on the second day.... I only wash my hair every other day.

(I know, I kinda feel like I just admitted a drug habit.)

Pshew. It feels much better to get that off my chest.

(Me, right now.)
(Man, I look tired.)

Happy No-Wash Thursday!

(Let's hope my boss doesn't notice its icky state during our meeting today, ok?)

haha, I hope your boss doesn't notice either...because I can't!

Its actually not necessary to wash every day, definitely no conditioner every day!

Aly said...

Maybe I shouldn't put this out there...but I only wash my hair every few days. My hair is so thick and coarse, if I washed it everyday I would have to wake up at 4 every morning to make it look halfway decent!

PinkSass said...

Happy no wash Thursday indeed! (I didn't wash my hair today either)

I use dry shampoo and sometimes I just use baby powder. (That's what I did this morning)

BOOM!

ps I really think you work 7 days a week...liar!

My hairdresser actually begs me to wash my hair less often. She says I should do it at most every other day or else it gets too dry. Your hair looks great on No-Wash Thursday!

Annie said...

Girl, I'm with you. I probably only wash my hair a couple times a week. Isn't it so much easier!

Kristen said...

I only wash my hair every 2-3 days...it's so thick, it takes forever to dry!

Stephanie said...

My hairdresser told me not two wash my hair everyday! I too am sporting the no wash...lol...with a pony!

Kimberly said...

Hitting my mid-20s was the best thing to every happen to me because I could start every other day washings with no problem. Most weeks I usually only do Monday, Wednesday and Friday as I like to participate in super lazy Sundays with minimal makeup and hair fussing!

MissBrightside said...

I shower before work and after work...washing my hair twice a day and shaving my legs twice a day!! I can't be the only "over washer" am I?

melissa said...

I've been told it's better not to wash your hair daily. So, I wash every 2-3 days. Sometimes day 3 requires some dry shampoo, but I think it's made my hair healthier. Less blowdrying & flat ironing means less breakage. I think your hair looks great on day 2! So, have no shame, you're not alone.

Jac said...

I shampoo my hair twice a week, although I shower daily and condition daily. My hair dresser actually told me it was healthier for my hair?
Maybe I am just grimy! :-)

THE Stephanie said...

Hmmmm... so I'm way behind on this dry shampoo thing. I wash my hair everyday b/c it's so fine that I feel like if I don't wash and dry, it's just lifeless.

Do you wet your hair in the shower on your no-wash days or no? I may have to give this dry shampoo thing a try!

Sarah said...

I do the exact same thing. Usually its every 2 or 3 days. I have pretty thick long hair and its always fine. Sometimes I just put some baby powder in it and its good to go. My hair always gets compliments that it is so healthy. I don't want them to know I don't wash the hair everyday! LOL. Glad we're in the same boat.

I always had been a daily hair washer too which was mainly because when I was in high school I had dance almost every day and the sweat + my greasy hair combo was a no go on washing every other day.
I'm finally able to go a day between washings, and I have a very strict system when I work my three 12 hour shifts in a row. I wash and blow dry the first day, make that last through the second day, wash it after my second shift, go to bed with it wet and it comes out cute and wavy for the third. I finally let one of my managers in on the secret that you can always tell when it's my third day because my hair is curly!

Sarah Elizabeth said...

Wow I am so jealous! I've always wanted to wash my hair every other day. But the combo of TN hard water (even with a filter), and my oily/fine hair doesn't work well together. And coincidentally enough, I've never had dry hair.

Becky said...

You look GREAT! I wish I had naturally straight hair, but mine is SUPER curly and I have to straighten it out with my Chi iron. It looks really fluffy on my blog pics today (according to Terence...blah!) I only wash mine every other day because if I straightened it every day it would probably fall out! :P

designHER Momma said...

1. you are so cute! (sorry I missed you on Sunday).
2. what is your favorite dry shampoo? I too am a user and i love the "big sexy hair" brand - but always want to try something new...

Brittany said...

I hate not washing my hair every day because it gets oily but to keep it healthy I wash it every other day. What brand of dry shampoo do you use?

Allison said...

I feel so nasty if I don't wash my hair every day b/c I'm greasy. I wish I could get away with washing every other day and just use dry shampoo. I have dry shampoo for emergencies, but I still just feel disgusting. I'm one oily girl.

Sara said...

Thanks for the tip!! I am so buying this next time I'm at Ulta!! Great find.

Piper Jacquelyn said...

I wish I could get away with not washing my hair everyday. Mine does NOT get nice and soft and pretty a la you. Instead it gets flat and greasy gross icky face. Boo! I do me some hair powder though!
