We already know that washing our hair too often strips the scalp of its essential oils, yet many of us lather up pretty much every day.
Kim Kardashian always manages to keep her locks glossy and sleek, despite the copious amounts of styling and that blonde ‘do. How does she do it?
“Keeping your hair shiny and soft in the winter can be difficult!” the fashion and beauty icon wrote on her website. “I only shampoo it twice a week to prevent it from drying out.”
Well, there we go. If Kim can shampoo twice a week without turning into a dread-locked grease ball, so can we?
I’m a big believer in not shampooing every day (although it can be hard when I’ve had a lot of product in my hair on a shoot and I need it clean for the next days job). But I’m more of a 3-4 times a week kind of girl.
So, what to do with limp locks on wash-free days? Kim’s go-to hairstyle: a sleek ponytail. Your hair will thank you in the long run and you’ll probably end up seeing a difference. And don’t forget you’ll use far less of your expensive shampoos and conditioners!
If the ponytail isn’t your kinda thing, don’t forget that there’s some amazing dry shampoos on the market. My favourite is the Batiste range which freshens my mane up between washes.
How many shampoo’s do you do a week?
