I’ve gotten real lazy, guys. Washing, drying, and making my hair pretty is pretty goddamn time consuming and…sleep. Sleep is so beautiful and I love it and I’m the WORST when I’m grouchy. When I’m a grumpy Gus, I DO NOT leave my attitude and baggage at the door. I bring it all in and make some more. And then complain about it. So, I’ve started washing my hair every three days (For your safety. YOU’RE WELCOME). I get my hair all perfect and pretty the first day, then coast on it for the next two days. It’s great. Dry shampoo has pretty much become my BFF4L. Here’s how I get three perfect hair days with one shampoo. Oh, and keep in mind that I’m working out and sweating and stuff too. So, if you wanted to use that as an excuse to complain or whatever…don’t even think about it. Your hair will be happy you decided to embrace the lazy.

Day 1

Long and straight is my favorite look to carry me through the next two shampoo-less days. It's a good starting point.

Get ready to spend an hour and a half getting ready today. UGH. JAYSUS. IS THAT REALLY NECESSARY. Kinda. But, don’t worry, you get two days of bliss after this. I straighten my hair the first day because it gives me more options of what to do over the next couple days. Also it looks good.

DRY SHAMPOO. NOT UNCONTROLLABLE DANDRUFF.

To set you up for a great Day 2, before bed, sprinkle or spray some dry shampoo on your hair focusing on the roots. I move around my part spraying all the while to make sure I don’t wake up with a seriously neglected grease bomb area. DON’T BRUSH THE DRY SHAMPOO IN YET. Pull your hair back into a loose ponytail or braid and let the dry shampizzle soak up the gross overnight. It’ll be practically gone by morning and all you’ll have to do to get the rest out is brush your hair once through.

Day 2

These waves survived the whole day! And just barely made it out alive from a heavy makeout session.

These waves survived the whole day! And just barely made it out alive from a heavy makeout session.

I had work at 6am this morning. Don’t judge. Got these waves up and running in ten minutes using a tapered curling wand (the most user friendly of all the hot tools). Just section hair out, wrap medium sized pieces, and count to fifteen. Then spray that shit with hairspray, flip over, gently finger comb, and enjoy. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. If your hair normally has trouble holding a curl, try curling on day 2! My hair holds and sustains curls much better on day 2.

To set you up for success tomorrow, do the pre-bedtime dry shampoo routine. I don’t brush my hair first on day 2 because I want my ponytail tomorrow to be voluminous and a li’l messy.

Day 3

Ponytails always look so much better in person. What's with that.

Ponytail day. Or leave your hair down and be pleasantly surprised day. Shockingly, day 3 is always ten times better than day 2. Unless it’s the week before your period. Then ponytail it is!

I luh dem wispies.

To keep it perky, I wrap a little piece of hair around the hair tie and secure it with a couple bobby pins. Then I pull out some wispies and tug at the pulled back hair to make it less perfect. And voila!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Bumble & Bumble Pret-a-Powder.  Of all the dry shampoos I’ve tried, this one smells the best. You sprinkle this one on instead of spray. It does a great job of soaking up the gross and volumizing and extending your hair style.
  • Living Proof Prime Style Extender. Putting this on towel dried hair will add so much life to your hairstyle. It’s the greatest.
