DIRTY HAIR?! LINDSEY’S 6 DAY ROUTINE

DAY 1

DIRTY HAIR, DON'T CARE: HOW TO GO 6 FULL DAYS WITHOUT WASHING YOUR HAIR! - BEHRENS ARTISTRY

PRODUCTS:

SCRUNCHIE

ROUTINE:

On day 1 90% of the time I try to let my hair air dry. Now, I am a stay at home mom by trade so I definitely have the ability to do so. I have a nice natural beach wave to my hair and love how it looks air dried. Let’s get real, blow drying my hair is the ultimate pits. I rarely do it and I truly believe my hair is in such a healthy condition because of it! I know this is not an option for everyone especially if you are a working woman or your hair does not air dry well! If that is the case just move to my DAY 2 HAIR and add blow drying to your routine! After letting my hair air dry for the day my SECRET WEAPON for really the whole series is my SCRUNCHIES!!!!! These are the game changer if you are trying to go multiple days without washing your hair. I literally can not sleep with my hair down, so I can use one of these bad boys and it doesn’t leave a bend in my hair! LIFE CHANGING!! I’m bringing the 80’s back one scrunchie at a time

DAY 2

PRODUCTS:

VOLUME POWDER | TEXTURIZING SPRAY | NUME TITANIUM WAND

ROUTINE:

Day 2 is when I will actually style it! I have EXTREMELY oily hair and I truly believe that volume powder is what allows me to go this long without washing my hair! We will link the powder down below. I place the volume powder into the crown of my hair in rows down to my ear. I then curl my hair with my NUME TITANIUM WAND leaving my ends straight. For my length of hair I wrap the hair away from my face around twice. I then spray with texture spray while seperating out my curls. For bedtime on this day I wear it in a low pony to keep my curl in tact for the next day! **TIP: the less you touch your hair the better. Every time you touch your hair you are transferring your oils from your hands to your hair.

DAY 3

PRODUCTS:

DRY SHAMPOO| VOLUME POWDER | HAIR SPRAY | LOREAL ROOT TOUCH UP |NUME TITANIUM WAND

ROUTINE:

Day 3 is when I typically start seeing some oiliness to my hair. This is the day I introduce dry shampoo into my routine. I usually flip my hair to one side spraying the dry shampoo lightly and repeating on the other side. I use the dry shampoo sparingly on this day, focusing on my bangs and temples. On day 3 I like to switch up my part and toss it to the side. I love doing this because it has been used to a middle part from the past two days so when I flip it I get a TON of volume! You could do this same trick if you have bangs that swoop, you could always swoop them the opposite direction. I always touch up just the curls that have gone flat and my front pieces BEFORE I flip it. I sprinkle a little volume powder directly on my bangs where they swoop over to keep the height. Spray a bit of light hold hair spray and then done! **TIP if you are like me and have roots that are on the darker side, get a root touch up spray! I love it to cover up the look of dry shampoo (no one like looking like a powdery mess) or a bonus for me….double dutying MY GREYS!

DAY 4

PRODUCTS:

DRY SHAMPOO | HAIR SPRAY | LOREAL ROOT TOUCH UP |NUME TITANIUM WAND

ROUTINE:

Okay DAY 4 is where it starts getting a bit dicey. This day for me is when the hair needs to go UP! I like to wear my hair up on this day as well because I’m typically OVER having my hair down! I start by again flipping my head side to side and lightly coating my roots in dry shampoo. This day I need to do the under portions of my hair as well. I will take a few mins and lightly curl only the top pieces of my hair so when I put them in my ponytail they don’t look flat. DO NOT CURL YOUR WHOLE HEAD AGAIN! I then take a brush and pull my hair up into a high pony. I absolutely adore this look and always feel like myself in it. After putting it in the pony I take my hairspray and generously spray all my baby hairs down (I have an annoying amount) and then spray my pony. I always spray my bald spots with my root touch up spray to finish the look!

DAY 5

DIRTY HAIR, DON'T CARE: HOW TO GO 6 FULL DAYS WITHOUT WASHING YOUR HAIR! - BEHRENS ARTISTRY

PRODUCTS:

DRY SHAMPOO | HAIR SPRAY | LOREAL ROOT TOUCH UP

ROUTINE:

DAY 5 is usually in the same state as DAY 4 hair. It doesn’t look any oilier because it had been in a pony all day but by this day my curls are just looking a little sad and I don’t want to deal with them. BRING IN THE TOP KNOT! Oh the good old trusty top knot. It always looks chic and amazing and on DAY 5 I am in need of some of that. I again start with some dry shampoo not so much for the oiliness, but I’m not going to lie this day my hair starts smelling a little, well….yuck at this point. I like it to just..let’s say “refresh” everything! I put my hair in a high pony like the day before but then I tease my pony a bit, twist and wrap it around in a bun, securing it with another rubber band. Pin any additional hairs out of place and then your done!

DAY 6

DIRTY HAIR, DON'T CARE: HOW TO GO 6 FULL DAYS WITHOUT WASHING YOUR HAIR! - BEHRENS ARTISTRY

PRODUCTS:

DRY SHAMPOO

ROUTINE:

Day 6 it’s time for some added help! Any hat of your choosing will do on this day! I love me a beanie so that’s typically my go to but will switch it up in the summer time. I will spritz with a little dry shampoo again for the smell factor and just let my old curls be what they may! The titanium wand is BY FAR the best wand!!! It will literally keep my hair curled for the duration of the 6 days with minimal touch ups. Throw that hat on and let the messiness fall how it falls!

ALL PRODUCTS ARE LINKED BELOW TO SHOP STRAIGHT FROM AMAZON!





I know some of you may seem skeptical that you can go a full 6 days but I suggest taking baby steps! If you currently wash your hair everyday then just start with going 2 maybe 3 days to start. Your hair will get used to it and adjust. We hope this helps you guys free up some time in your schedule and hop on the NO WASH bandwagon with us!

    Hi there! I have long hair or as my husband calls “mermaid hair”. I loved this bit on long hair! I honestly never know what to use on my hair. I normally wash my hair every 2-3 days. It gets so oily but most of the time my reason is that my scalp itches so bad. Not sure if it’s my shampoo or if I should use a cleansed shampoo. Any suggestions on shampoo and conditioners? I would love to try to get up to 6 days of no wash!

      Hey Anna!
      Thanks for taking the time to read. So ecstatic you loved it! Yes I wonder if your scalp may be a bit dry! You will get some build up over the 6 days and that’s just normal. Ouai has some amazing products for shampoo and conditioning and their entire line you can mix and match! So if you scalp is dry but you need to cleanse it you can get a shampoo for cleansing purposes BUT get a conditioner that helps with the dryness. We never thought to mix and match our shmapoo’s and conditioners until their line suggested it!! Thanks so much for reading and let us know if that helps with your problem!
