How do you get the most days out of a hair wash?

Do you any of you know any tricks to prolonging the amount of days before you need to wash your hair? It might sound like an odd question, but washing and blow-drying my hair takes up time in the morning! (I have thick hair). Wouldn't it be great if we didn't have to do it so often? If you have any products recommendations or tips to solving this one, please share them.

Batiste Dry shampoo on Feb 25, 2010 @ 08:30 pm

The one that says Blush. Oh my gosh I don't know how I ever did without this stuff it's great. You can get it at Sally Beauty Supply or Beauty Supply Outlet. I tried the original oone but for some reason it didn't work like the Blush did for me so I don't recommend that one.

Hi!
I use this product and it works wonders, smells great, and doesn't leave hair feeling sticky or looking powdery like every other dry shampoo I've tried. I typically use this by just holding my head upside down and spraying at the roots. That's all! It's super easy and works great. It's a TIGI product so as far as I know it should only be bought in salons (a black can with a green cap), but you can probably buy it on Amazon as well.

Batiste Dry Shampoo on May 05, 2010 @ 08:15 pm

Hi ladies - have not got around to trying Cake yet. Have since bought Batiste (at Shoppers) and have been pretty happy with the results. It's about $8 for the can. I've used it only on the mornings of the third day after a wash to get me through the day to wash either later that evening or the next morning.

It has definitely done the trick for me so far. I spray it in sections and then rub it in like a shampoo, then brush it out - I have to give it a good brush though because my hair is black and I don't want to risk any remaining white stuff in my hair.

This does not replace washing by any means, but does allow me to wash my hair less frequently, which is a perfect for me. I was wanting to not wash my hair every other day, as I usually had done.

Hope you enjoy!

What if you have oily hair? on Jun 08, 2010 @ 02:45 pm

I find the same problem, I wash my hair way too often.
I have shorter hair, and it gets oily within two days so I find myself washing it every other day, if not everyday.
I stopped using conditioner as I had people tell me that it would cause my hair to get oilier faster, and I've noticed a difference, but I still can't escape oily hair after two days.

Would you recommend these products for super oily hair as well?

Have you ever tried dusting a bronzer or brown coloured blush into your roots?
It's a really good way to take the grease out of your hair if you're in a hurry :)

Batiste and Cake on Jun 10, 2010 @ 10:55 pm

Both of those reccos are fantastic. Cake Satin Sugar is a best seller and I recently tried Batiste Coloured Dry Shampoo for Brunettes and I am so impressed. It really does take away that dirty hair feeling and gives you another day before you need to wash your hair.

Batiste is really great! I tried it in Blush and love it! Even if you have oily hair you can use it, but you still won't be able to go as long as people with dry hair.

It's not very expensive ($9 Canadian and I hear it's half that in the U.S.) but if you don't want to buy it, I know many people who just use baby powder on their roots. Just make sure you blend it in well and recruit someone to check the back of your hair for patches of white powder!
