I Have The Dirtiest Hair In My Family.

My unclean hair - 3 days!

That is the statement my brother made to me. And it's true. If you define "dirty hair" as hair not washed every day then yes, I have dirty hair. However, I like to think of my hair as healthy. I wash it about once a week. There have been many arguments against shampooing your hair every day. Shampoo contains similar ingredients to laundry detergent and sucks out the natural oils your hair produces. You should wait up to 3 days for them to form on your follicles before washing them off with shampoo. If I washed my hair every day it would be like straw.

I'm part of the no poo movement. In between washes I use dry shampoo. I love Suave's Dry Shampoo. Gives volume, smells great and cheap (less than $6!).

I like to think I have the best hair in the family. Do you no poo?


  1. I'm so with you! I have curly hair that would be so so dry if I washed it every day. I wash about ever other day, but could probably afford to skip one more day in between. And I'm SO SO happy that dry shampoo has gone mainstream! A couple years ago I could only get it at Sephora, and it was so expensive!


  2. Sadly, I have oily hair so I can't do what you do. The longest I can go without washing my long hair is 2 days. Normally I wash it every other day or every day depending on how active I am. I used to shampoo & condition my hair with pantene & fructese, but when my hair started falling out I switched to a more natural organic product without all the chemicals. So far, so good.

  3. I just ran out of dry shampoo. I'll have to try Suave next time. That's awesome that you can go a week. My hair gets pretty greasy, so two days skipped is the longest I've gone without washing my hair so far.

  4. This made me chuckle! I don't wash my hair every day. I try to go every other day. If I go for longer than that my hair tends to get really greasy. I need to try dry shampooing for the in between days.

  5. I wash my hair every other day. Becuase mine is so thin and stringy if I go too long it just looks nasty. I've tried dry shampoos in the past and they didn't provide the revitalized look that I needed but I'm willing to give this product a go since you seem to like it!

  6. I like the Suave dry shampoo. It is the only drugstore brand that doesn't make my roots look gray.

  7. I was actually discussing this today with my mum, when I woke up and my hair looked amazing: I hadn't washed it in 4 days.
    I can't bare to wash my hair everyday either, so dry shampoo is such a life saver.

  8. @Christina - It took me awhile to understand the beauty of dry shampoo and now I use it once a week!

    @Cinderella's Closet - Hair falling out?! Oh my! Do what you gotta do :)

    @Rebekah - Let me know if you like it!

    @Fashion by Alicia - Try it!

    @Leanna - Let me know what you think :)

    @Rebecca - haha so true

    @Sherin - YEY!

  9. You are not alone in that! My hair is naturally curly so I have to wash it once a week (otherwise it would be dry mess!). Midweek I wash my hair with conditioner, which helps get all the product I use out without drying my hair out.

  10. You had me at "no poo movement." Tee hee.
    I agree, washing hair daily is not healthy for hair. When I don't wear hair product, I don't wash my hair. However I've been on a gel kick (in my attempt to grow out the do) and have to get that stuff out daily.

    No poo. Movement. Same sentence. Ah, funny stuff.

  11. Yes, I am part of the low poo movement, too! (I can hear Bella laughing). I'm not sure if I could do dry shampoo, because my mop is a frizzball every morning. So I have to wet, condition, and style daily. But I do think my hair has looked healthier since I started shampooing every 3 days rather than daily.
