Sal's Sunday Solutions: Skip wash day with this DIY hairspray!

Especially when you have curls it's essential that you don't wash your hair every day. Unless you want to end up with really dry hair, of course, that's up to you, you know.. But I know you don't want that, so here's a tip to skip another day of washing your hair, without your curls looking all silly or dreadlock-ish!  Oh, and this tip works for other hair types as well! I say: you must read it. 

So what is all the hassle about, you ask? How can you skip wash day and still have beautiful hair? In another post with tips for curly hair I told you to not wash your hair every day, but to wet it. But here I have a better tip for you: wet it with a DIY hairspray. 

What you'll need? Only three things!
  • A leave-in conditioner
  • Water
  • An empty spray bottle 

I think you can already guess what to do, but I'll explain it anyway. Get your empty spray bottle. Put some of the leave-in conditioner in it, about 10% (depends on how quick your hair frizzes and how deep your product conditions). Add water to it and shake well. Then you can spray your hair wet and scrunge it for nice curls, without washing your hair!

Above you can see what products are my favourites to use (sometimes I mix them too), but it's completely up to you what you use! I'm not sure what the Dove product is called, because it's in Greek! I bought it once on the market and I still regret not buying more. If you know the name of this product, please let me know!

I've been doing this for a while now, but I did some research to see if others do the same thing and they do! Some like to add oils and other kind of moisturizing products too. Play with mixing and see what works for you! A little extra tip: don't forget to shake well every time before you use it!

How do you skip wash day, but still make your hair look good?

  3. Oooh! Gonna try this! Perfect for lazy me and my long messy hair.


  4. Great, my hair has been so friggin dry lately, I'll definitely do that, it looks like it's exactly what my hair needs.. a conditioner at hand all the time!

  5. This is an awesome idea - my curls are really flat and dull if I don't wash my hair every second day but I know that washing too often leaves it dry and my roots oily! Thanks for the suggestion xx

  7. Hi Sal. I found your blog on The Lovely Bunch blog hop. I have naturally straight hair and wash it every other day. In the 'no wash day' I find it looks OK. Carly. X Carly's Beauty World

  8. love this post! your soo right, u cant wash hair daily when u have curly hair, or afro hair like me.. :) i think some people even do co washing instead of their weekly (for instance) wash to avoid drying out their hair. for me i just wash my hair once a week with shampoo and everything. i usually have a moisturising mist to use on my hair throughout the week, or just a leave in hair conditioner! x


I bet you have something to say about this! Don't leave me hanging; share your thoughts! :)
