If you have ever been in the salon to see me, I’m almost certain you received the question…
“how often do you wash your hair?”
Some of you may be shocked to know I wash mine about every 4 days! It may take some time for your scalp to adjust it’s amount of natural oils it produces and for you to adjust to the idea, but it really is better for the health of your hair to at least skip one day between shampoos. Especially after a color service, I would recommend 48-72 hours so your cuticle has time to fully close back down to prevent color loss.
Here is a sneak peek at my routine..
Day 1: Shampoo/Condition with Davines Love. Apply Bumble Tonic Lotion to detangle with my wet brush. Also apply a little of the Davine Invisible Styling Cream to smooth down my cuticle. Blow dry my bangs, roots and long layers to avoid leaving the house with a wet head, but leave my ends damp. Then I spray them with the Bumble Surf Spray.. sea salt is an amazing ingredient to bring out the best hair wave. Fishtail or regular braid my ends for a cute look that saves my hair from additional heat styling.
Day 2: Take out the braid, and apply some Moroccan Oil to my ends. Comb out and let the natural waves take shape!
By day 3, I usually need a little dry shampoo (Bumble makes one with a dark blonde pigment to avoid the white powder look) at my roots and use some more Moroccan Oil before creating the big loose waves with my 1” Hot Tools curling iron.
Day 4: repeat day 3… most of the time I do not have to re-curl.. just comb the curls out and go with a looser wave.
Give it a try! And trust me, the right products go a long way.
