Weirdo, or genius?
I’m just going to get to it – I wash my hair every 6 days. Every once in a while, I’ll have a busy week that requires me to have fresh hair for an event, so I’ll break that cycle but for the most part – every 6 days.
I just started using conditioner.
For a very long stretch of time, I skipped conditioner and shampooed my hair twice while in the shower. This made a HUGE difference in how my style worked and lasted. But over time I realized I needed to be treating my hair better, so now I…
Shampoo. Condition. Shampoo again.
This makes for a decently long shower, but I say it’s one of the secrets to my hair. Because I’m really getting all of the product out. And when you wash your hair only every 6 days, there tends to be a lot of product build up. I was skipping conditioner because it was making my hair too slick. I didn’t want to loose the fullness of my hair, so that’s where the second shampoo comes in. Plus it leaves me squeaky clean.

Other things I do to make my style last? I hair spray my hair at night. Not a ton, but just a good all over spray and I let it set before I lay my head down on a silk pillow case. That’s another great secret – because that case is going to save your skin, and your hair style.
I only get my hair cut 4 times a year, but that’s because I keep it long. I trim my own bangs with nail scissors because they give me more control.
And where you get your hair cut is SO VERY IMPORTANT. If you don’t have a hair dresser that listens to you and takes your feedback as well as offers their own, then you don’t know what you’re missing! I’ve gone to Barnes & Barnes in Market Square for over 14 years now and wouldn’t go any where else even if offered large sums of money. Steve Barnes gets me, gets my hair and offers valuable insight while taking into account my opinion and the things I like to do with my hair. If you don’t have that kind of relationship. Go get it. They’re in Market Square next to Stock Burgers.
