As a girl who’s in love with her long, dark hair (and not only), I can say that it’s pretty hard, though, to take care of it. Washing and drying it involves a lot of time and patience – but I don’t mind drying it as long as I’m listening to music and singing (it’s an advantage that I don’t hear myself :)) ) – and if you’re in a hurry, then things get serious: you give up and decide to tie it in a pony tail. Well, I still think that having it tied at school is more comfortable.
People close to me know that I love washing my hair. It’s a personal thing. I love having it clean and smooth – and I really dislike seeing someone with dirty hair. I just don’t like it.
After being told multiple times that I should stop washing my hair every 2 days (not by my hairstylist), I’ve decided to give it a try. BIG MISTAKE! My hair has always been healthy and long and I’ve always washed it every 2 – 3 days. It’s been long since I was 6. I don’t see myself with short hair, it’s not my style, it doesn’t define me. I use a different shampoo and hair conditioner every 2 – 3 months, I blow dry it always (only during summer I let it dry naturally) and I straighten it every 2 – 3 days (I think I have something with these numbers) – and it’s always been healthy. I’m just lucky – even though it’s not as thick as I would like it to be and, unfortunately, it’s never been very thick – but I’m okay with that 😀
Let’s get back to the subject. Why was it a big mistake? Well, except the fact that I was feeling really weird not washing my hair for 5, 6 days, after washing it (yesterday), it’s all tangled and damaged. I don’t recommend you to keep it dirty for so long, especially if it’s used to being washed often. If it’s not, then it’s okay. But for my hair, it was a bad decision.
Remember that what works for me, may not work for you!
I’m curious about you. Do you like washing it only once a week? I’m waiting to read your comments and opinions
