Secrets out guys, I only wash my hair twice a week. On the rare occasion there might be a third day. The reason I don’t wash my hair frequently is because it dries it out, and it’s not healthy for it, AND my hair holds a curl better when it’s a little dirty. Plus, I do have extensions in my hair (for volume, not length) and they just can’t be washed a ton.
So you maybe thinking, how do you go so long between washes and not have gross, greasy hair? Well there’s this beautiful thing called dry shampoo. I think it’s the best thing since sliced bread…HaHa. Anyway, I have been trying out different brands for a few years now. I’ve tried everything from Suave to MoroccanOil.
The lastest product I have been using is the Style Sexy Hair H2No. This is a lightweight and layerable dry shampoo that helps keep you hair fresh for up to 3 days. I have found that it helps keep that fresh shine to my hair and really does extend the life of my hair.
Here is a short video showing you how I incorporate Sexy Style Dry Shampoo, and curl my hair with my straightener. Below is more details on the steps I do on a daily bases between washes to help keep my hair looking fresh.
Steps For Using Dry Shampoo to Extend Your Hair
Dry Shampoo – Section your hair and hold the Sexy Style Dry Shampoo about 4-5 inches away from the root. Spray the section and move to the next. Continue until you have covered your roots, be sure to get the underneath sections at the base of your head (this area can show oil pretty easily, especially if you wear it up).
Blow Dry + Brush – You don’t have to blow dry, you can simply work the product in with your fingers, but I love the results better if I use the blow dryer. Not sure if this is truly correct, but I find the dry shampoo picks up the oil better when I do this, an I work it in with my fingers during this step to ensure I get all areas.
Style Hair – I generally wear my hair in loose curls. I use my straightener to curl because my hair holds the curl so much longer this way. Any time I’ve used a curling iron or wand, it goes flat within an hour or two….is this just me, or does anyone else find that too?
