I don’t know about you but I like having clean hair. I’m not neurotic by any means but I like having clean hair. My hair guy however (you know, the one who cuts the hair and makes me look human) isn’t too pleased at how often I cut my hair. The recommendation: wash my hair once every 4 days.
Is that evenly humanly okay?
So…I uh, kind of ignored that recommendation and at most, over the years the most I’ve been able to stretch it is to wash my hair every other day. Just can’t seem to go past that.
Then came another suggestion from a gal pal at work. According to her hair guy, the suggestion is to wash your hair with shampoo once a week maybe but then when you feel your hair needs a wash, wash with conditioner only.
I’ve never heard of THAT before.
Okay, so I try it out and guess what?
As I write this post, I’ve been testing out this theory for a good 2-3 weeks. The first day, I washed my hair with shampoo. Then, when my hair needed a wash I used only conditioner as in I wet my hair, lathered it with conditioner, rinsed it off, dried it, and that was it.
That was the weirdest experience. My hair felt clean but it was a different kind of clean and my scalp certainly felt clean and yet I didn’t use shampoo. Next time I needed a wash, I did the same thing – just conditioner. After a week, I used shampoo and continued the same cycle.
So, how does my hair feel now?
My hair feels great! It’s actually a lot smoother, silkier, and better hydrated than it has been in a long time. My scalp feels great and oddly enough I don’t feel like I need to wash my hair every other day anymore. It’s almost like my hair and scalp have balanced themselves out. Dare I say my hair and scalp feel healthier?
All I know is, my hair feels better, my scalp feels way better, and I really have been able to stretch how often I wash my hair with shampoo.
I’ll keep you all posted on how this new hair regime works out but in the meantime, if you have hair issues you may just want to try this technique out too!
