We all know it's not good to wash our hair every day, but it's really hard sometimes to go multiple days in between your wash days. I've compiled my best tips for preserving your curls, styling your hair so that it lasts longer, and the best long-lasting products.

As I explained in the video, don't stress if you just can't get by with only washing your hair once a week, and comparing yourself to others. Everyone's scalp and curls are so different, and as long as you're taking care of your curls and they're healthy, that's all that matters.

I have fine curly hair, that's low density. I can usually get 2-4 days out of my style. My hair easily gets buildup and gets weighed down easily because it's fine. Coarser hair textures can usually go longer without washing their hair.

I notice after about 3 days, I start to feel some oil on my scalp. Nothing that that noticeable, but enough to where I don't like the feeling or the smell of my hair at the root.

Here's my tips for going longer without washing your curly hair:

  • Use a strong hold gel or mousse on wash day to "seal" in the moisture and protect your hair from frizz with the "cast"
  • Leave some of the cast in your hair so it lasts longer
  • If you wash at night, leave the gel cast in your hair when you sleep and scrunch it out in the morning
  • Sleep in a satin bonnet or on a satin pillowcase with your hair up in a loose scrunchie
  • Avoid tangles and breakage with the tips in this video
  • Skip refreshing and let your hair rest if you can when you're staying home
  • Wear protective hairstyles like a pineapple, high bun, low bun, etc.
  • Avoid using too much product when refreshing
  • Adjust how wet you get your hair when refreshing
  • Only spot refresh, or refresh the curls that need it
  • Use dry shampoo to absorb oil
  • Wear your hair in a satin bonnet when working out, silk scarf, or in a loose scrunchie
