Raise your hand if you like washing your hair every day? What about every other day? Nope, didn’t think so. If you’re anything like me, you try to put off washing your hair for as long as possible. Because let’s be honest, it’s kind of a pain! Washing your hair adds time to your shower and then lots of additional time to your after shower routine. And another honest moment, nobody has time to do that every day! Well I’m happy to report to y’all that I’ve found a way to extend the length of time between washes while also keeping your hair smelling and looking fresh between those washes. I’m talking four to five days. The answer, Waterl<ss No Residue dry shampoo, dry conditioner, and freshener.
Aside from the pain of washing your hair every day or even every other day, it also isn’t something you should do. Why? Because doing so strips your scalp of its natural healthy oils and can cause dryness as well as inflammation. Which can lead to a dry, itchy scalp. And nobody wants that! Additionally, washing your hair every day can cause your hair to look and also feel flat and brittle – been there, done that – it’s not fun or pretty!
While traveling I love to wash my hair the day I leave and wait until returning home to wash it again. My hair stylish actually recommended this as well when we were chatting at my last appointment. She mentioned the fact that water is different everywhere you visit and washing her hair with different water can produce different results! So, skipping the hair washes during travels saves you from a possible hair disaster, saves time, and also saves water.
While in NYC earlier this month for NYFW, I put my Waterl<ss products to the test! Using their No Residue Dry Shampoo, Weightless Smooth Dry Conditioner, and Apple Berry Fragrance Mist. I ended up carrying them with me throughout our busy days for touch ups in between meetings, shows + presentations, and showroom visits. Guess who skipped washing her hair all of NYFW? This gal! I was able to stretch washing my hair for four full days. I loved skipping the in-shower washes while still having clean, conditioned hair that also smelled amazing!
Fun fact: I never used dry conditioner until trying the Waterl<ss Weightless Smooth Dry Conditioner. Two words: game changer! This is the product I have been needing in my life! While dry shampoo takes care of your roots, your ends are left feeling dry and brittle when going multiple days in between washes. Am I right? Well the Weightless Smooth Dry Conditioner changes all of that – creating a soft, smooth feel without the weight. Moisturizing your dry ends and controlling the frizz! This was my favorite product to use while in NYC as the cold air, harsh winds, and crazy heat flowing indoors I found my hair feeling quite dry! With a little spritz of the Waterl<ss Weightless Smooth Dry Conditioner it was back to that soft, smooth, hydrated feeling!
While I’m incredibly impressed by the Waterl<ss products, I am even more impressed by the purpose behind their products. When the city of Cape Town in South Africa announced that it was just three months away from running out of clean water, Waterl<ss was able to test the products in their area to make sure the citizens of Cape Town could have clean hair without using a single drop of water. The best part, they designed products to meet the needs of all hair types!
How to Keep Your Hair Looking Fresh Between Washes
1. Apply No Residue Dry Shampoo to your roots – shake the can well, hold can 10-12 inches away and spray directly on your roots! Give it about 30 seconds and then run your fingers through hair to distribute. You can also brush out!
2. Spray your locks with Weightless Smooth Dry Conditioner when they start to feel dry – shake the can well and spray your hair from mid-shaft to ends. Then run your fingers through your hair to distribute.
3. Add some Apple Berry Fragrance Mist – shake the can well and spray all over your fabulous mane!
