Hi, in this post, I’m going to explain to you how I style my hair without washing it for 7 days! I only use a few products throughout the week, so that I don't end up with a heavy build up by the last day.

On the first day, I wash my hair and let it air dry. The only product that I use besides the shampoo and conditioner is a detangler. I let that sit in my damp hair for a few minutes and then I brush the tangles out with my wide toothed brush and comb. I make sure my part is where I want it and that is the extent of what I do on day 1.
On the second day, I brush out my hair and use a large barreled curling iron (1.5 inches) on my whole head. The only product I normally use is the heat protectant and hairspray.
On the third day, I repeat day 2.
On the fourth day, I repeat days 2 and 3 but I do add in the dry shampoo for added texture and to make my hair smell great.
On the fifth day, I use the heat protectant and dry shampoo but on this day, I use the curling wand to give me beachy waves. I also add in a shine spray in addition to my hairspray. It gives my hair a nice sheen and also gives it a great smell.
On day six, I repeat day 5.
On the last day, day 7, I usually just comb through my hair and spray it with dry shampoo, hairspray and shine. It saves me so much time since it only takes me a few minutes. With 2 children and a full time job, this really helps give me extra time in my day to do other things, while still looking well put together. Sometimes I will add in a few curls just depending on how my hair looks on that particular day and whether or not I want a more polished look as opposed to a more casual appearance.
I want to point out that I don't do this routine all the time. I do this when I know for sure I will be having a very busy week and I know I won't have time to wash and blow dry my hair. My hair is very long and thick, so it takes forever to wash it and blow dry and style it. Also, note that I do color my hair (just my roots) which does tend to make my hair dry. So, for someone like me, my hair allows me to wait 7 days before washing it because instead of looking greasy, the oils actually help my normally dry color-treated hair. Obviously, this will not work on everyone's hair.
