Wish you could wash just ONCE A WEEK? Here's how....

If you're tired of washing your hair every other day or so, you might be wondering if it's possible to get your hair washing schedule down to once a week. While it may sound like a tall order, with some strategic planning and the right hair care routine, it's definitely achievable.

Here are some tips for getting your hair washing schedule down to once a week:

1. Train your scalp.

One of the reasons many people feel the need to wash their hair frequently is because their scalp produces a lot of oil. However, over-washing your hair can actually lead to your scalp producing even more oil to compensate. To break this cycle, you can train your scalp to produce less oil by gradually extending the time between washes. Start by washing your hair every other day, then gradually increase the time between washes until you're only washing once a week. Using an oil treatment daily on ends and before washing will actually help your hair be LESS greasy over time.

2. Use a dry shampoo

Dry shampoo is a lifesaver when it comes to extending the time between washes. Not only does it absorb excess oil, but it also adds volume and texture to your hair. Apply dry shampoo at night to your roots on the days you don't wash your hair to keep it looking fresh. This is a proactive way to manage over oiliness rather than waiting until you are a greasy hot mess.

3. Protect your hair at night - because -- bed head.

One of the biggest challenges of going a week between washes is keeping your hair looking good for that long. Sleeping on a cotton pillowcase can cause friction and damage to your hair, so consider switching to a silk or satin pillowcase. You can also tie your hair up in a loose bun or braid to prevent tangles and breakage.

4. Choose the right products

Using the right products can make a big difference in how long your hair stays clean and fresh. Look for sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners, which are gentler on your hair and scalp ( ding ding! ) . Avoid heavy styling products daily like mousse or clay / taffy. Wait a few days if you can before adding them in since they can weigh down your hair.

Let's get going and wash less!!!
