My Dirty Little Secret

Hi. My name is Holli and I don't wash my hair. Yes, you read that right. I'm not talking about the no-poo fad or dry shampoo fad. I literally don't wash my hair. I mean I do wash it but only once a week. I've had some people look at me like I'm disgusting. I mean I still shower everyday so I'm not that dirty. I get compliments on my hair all of the time. Obviously I'm doing something right. 

Healthy hair
Let's start at the beginning. My no washing journey began while I was dying my hair blonde. That's right people I was a blonde just a few years ago. Well if you know anything it's when you take dark brown hair to blonde your hair can get angry. Well mine became very dry. My hair dresser suggested I try washing my hair less. I started by going every other day and well it seemed to work a little. So I decided to keep skipping days until i could't take the dirtiness anymore. Well I am now down to washing my hair once a week and my hair has never looked better. It's so healthy and shiny. My hair dresser praises my no wash lifestyle and says she wishes she had my hair.

So you may be wondering how do you get away with greasy hair for a week? You get creative. I usually can wear it down for two days then it's off to the pony tail. I always tell my friends you can tell how dirty my hair is by where my pony tail is. If it's a low pony tail then it's probably 2-3 days dirty. If its in a top knot or a bun on top of my head then it's probably pretty dirty. I can usually pull that off for a few more days. Another trick to hide greasy hair is the front braid. It's one of my favorites and no one knows my hair is greasy.

 I like to tell myself that this not washing my hair thing is preparing me for motherhood. In all honesty I'm just really lazy and enjoy not washing my hair. It makes washing my hair even better. It feels so soft. So next time you wonder if you can get away with one more day of not washing think of me. Of course you can!
