How To: Keep Your Hair Looking Fresh in Between Washes

Hey Guys! It is no secret that washing your hair everyday will dry out your hair. Especially if you use heat to style. I, personally, hate washing my hair! It is so thick, and it takes forever to wash, blowdry, and style! In this blog, I am going to tell y’all what products I use to keep my hair looking good when I don’t want to wash my hair.

On the days that I do wash my hair, after I get out of the shower, I comb through my clean hair, and apply some of this Living Proof Hair Primer. ($20, Sephora)

I apply about a nickel-sized amount, I start from my ears down, and then I use whatever is left on my hands to do my roots and bangs. I know it is weird to put product on the top of your head, but the top of your head is where the oils are, so you need it there the most. I then blowdry and style as usual.

This product is a “style extender”, and is “weightlessly perfecting, weather proofing, and time saving.”

This product claims to:
– Weightlessly perfect strands
– Smooth and correct hair texture
– Block humidity and moisture flux
– Repel oil and dirt, keeping hair cleaner, and styles lasting longer

Now, the next day, when I wake up, I usually just put my hair up in a cap while I shower, and then after I get out, I brush through my hair, and apply some dry shampoo.

I use this Batiste Dry Shampoo with a hint of brown ($9, Ulta). I have tried almost every dry shampoo on the market, and this is the best one. It sprays out grayish-brown instead of white, making it easier to blend into my brown hair. It has a nice scent, and it doesn’t leave a residue in your hair. I section the top of my hair off and spritz this into my roots. It instantly makes my hair volumized and gets rid of any oil I may have.
The next thing I do is tease my hair. I lift up sections from the crown and tease and spray with my favorite hairspray, Loreal Elnett Satin ($15, Ulta).

This hairspray holds your style in place, but allows you to still brush through your hair. It’s not sticky, and I like the scent of it. So that’s it! That is how I keep my hair looking good in between washes. If you have any questions, leave me a comment down below!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and thanks for reading!

  1. Lol, JJ! Good post! I’ve tried dry shampoo before but didn’t like how it turned out. Looks like I should try a different brand!
