Give your hair (and yourself) a break this summer, and fight the feeling of greasy hair by spacing out washes.
We will be honest, it’s hard not to over wash after being outside in the hot, sticky heat. For some hair types, washing more than twice a week can become counter-productive in the attempt to maintain healthy hair. Even the most gentle haircare can remove too many of the hair’s natural oils, which condition both your scalp and the hair shaft.
Step One: break the greasy hair cycle
We know it will be a challenge, but you will have to accept that the first few days might be difficult. Watching your hair become progressively greasier as the days go by will not be fun, but you’ll need to resist the urge to wash your hair!
Prepare beforehand by asking your James Geidner hairstylist which haircare products are best for your hair type before you start your new routine. When your products are suited to your hair’s needs, the less your hair will demand of you. For example, you will want to avoid an extra-nourishing conditioner for greasy hair or an oil combatting shampoo for dry hair.
Step Two: attend to those roots
After two to three days, apply a dry shampoo like the Morning After Dust by L’Oréal Professionnel if you feel your roots are too flat or disagreeable. Spray it on your hair at the roots, wait a minute, and then brush out the excess product. Take advantage of the volumizing effect of this haircare product to elevate the look. To finish, add a healthy and shiny glow with Brume Sublimatrice, the innovative dry conditioner by L’Oréal Professionnel. This way, your locks look fresh and clean for the next two to three days, and you won’t feel the urge to shampoo! After a few weeks of this new hair routine, you’ll be able to see for yourself that your hair doesn’t become greasy as quickly, and you’ll also be able to save so much time since you are a pro at spacing out washes.
