Fun Fact Friday

People sometimes ask me what my secret is to such shiny, healthy looking hair.  I look at them dead in the eyes, and straight faced, I deliver the news...."I don't wash it."

I mean, yes, I wash my hair like 3 times a week- Monday, Wednesday, Friday.  And Sunday is the Lord's Day so I try not to shower at all that day.

However, this week, I accidentally got off my schedule....and well, I am not exactly sure how to tell you this, BUT....

I HAVEN'T WASHED MY HAIR SINCE SATURDAY! TODAY IS FRIDAY....THAT IS 7 FULL DAYS. 

Fact.

How did this happen?  Well, I showered on Saturday morning before traveling to a wedding in Nashville.  Then I spent the majority of Sunday hungover.  Then my hair looked really cute in a ponytail on both Monday and cute again with a little dry shampoo, cute again on Tuesday.  Then on Wednesday, I was supposed to run at 7am but then I felt a little sick and slept in...but there was a Reds game, so I just slapped a ball cap on a side braid and went along with my day promising to wash this mess Thursday.   AND THEN...well, lets just say there was a little drama involving 8 hot firefighters (long story for another day) and I had to go to the hospital Thurs morning and reinvented the "messy bun."

BOOM! 7 days of oil, dirt, mexican food smells, cigarette smoke, hospital smells, and general nastiness....You're welcome.

But before you judge me...just know that a lot of people you know don't wash their hair!




(ed. note: I washed it this morning and now have fluffy, clean, bouncy hair again...so maybe I only made it like 6.5 days)

  1. I only wash my hair 3 days a week too! what dry shampoo do you use? Have you tried the no-poo thing where you only wash your hair with conditioner when you do wash it? That works for like a week for me, then it's a hot greeseball mess.

  2. @ Leah- Big Sexy Hair Volumizing Dry Shampoo- it is an aerosol that smells really nice and dries clear. Since my hair is basically black, regular powder doesn't work so well!

    The reason I avoid the washing of the hair is less about the shampoo and more about sparing my hair of the blow dryer and flat iron!

  3. I only wash my hair a few times a week. I have super curly hair that I flat iron, so it's dry as a bone. I can actually put oil in it EVERY day and still, it looks dry. Thank you Italian hair gene. That's all.

  4. Washing hair is overrated. I let my shit get shiny as hell before I decide to wash it.
