Good morning! We’re starting today’s blog post with a question for you. A kind of informal survey if you will. Feel free to let us know your answer in the comments if you’d like, or you can just answer for yourself, but we are genuinely curious about the following: When it comes to your hair, how long can you go between washes?
Are you an every day no matter what kind of person, or can you skip a day? Maybe you can skip two or even three days on occasion? Or maybe you can even manage an entire week? Perhaps you fall somewhere in between, depending on the week, how busy you are, and how much sleep you’re getting – or not getting.
But what if we told you that skipping wash day on a regular basis can save you a lot. A lot of what, you might be asking. Well, let us explain!
Ok, this one is pretty obvious. The more often you shampoo and condition your hair, the more shampoo and conditioner you use, the more often you have to replace your shampoo and conditioner, so…see what we mean? Save your pennies by embracing the no-wash days, at least once or twice during the week if you possibly can!
Also kind of an obvious one, but if you’re washing your hair, there’s a good chance you’re also drying and styling it (especially in the winter so there’s no risk of frozen hair!) and that can take a good chunk of time out of your morning. And if you’re someone who likes to sleep, it can be such a nice treat to say “You know what? I can set that alarm for later now that I know I can skip wash day!” It’s freeing! And, even if you’re someone who shampoos at night before bed, it can still be a time-consuming process when again, you could be sleeping! Sensing a pattern? Sleep rocks!
Now this is something we might not always think about, but since we are gearing up for Earth Month here at Willow, the whole idea of saving water is on our minds. Skipping wash day cuts time off your daily shower, which in turn saves water. Three minutes = about six gallons of water – which can add up over the course of a week, a month, a year!
And of course, one of the best ways to preserve your hair between washes is with Aveda’s Dry Shampoo and Dry Conditioner. Check out this link for more about these two amazing products, and watch the videos for some non-wash day hair inspiration! Fun fact: your hair is easier to style on non-wash days because it has more texture! So get creative!
We hope we’ve convinced you that skipping wash day isn’t a bad thing! Give it a try and let us know what you think. And, as always, if you have any questions or need a little advice on how to make non-wash days work best for you, your Aveda stylists are always available to offer tips and ideas to motivate and inspire you!
Have a great week, everyone! Happy dry shampoo days, and we’ll see you here again on Friday.
