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.
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)
