Let’s talk about wash day. The long-awaited, sometimes dreaded, but definitely necessary day of the week where we carve out one to three hours of the day to give our hair an all-around deep clean and home treatment. It’s a day filled with shampoos, hair masks, deep conditioners, scalp treatments, hair oils, and lots and lots of combing and brushing.
For some, getting to wash day is the best part of their week, but for others, it’s the time of the week they dread because hair maintenance isn’t always a walk in the park and can be quite time-consuming. Regardless of whether you love wash day or not, we can all agree that making it to wash day can be quite tricky!
The first two days of the week are easy because your hair is still fresh from the previous wash day and it’s fairly easy to style and manage. It’s when we get to the middle of the week that your hair starts getting a bit difficult to deal with. It doesn’t have to be this way, though! With a little bit of time during the week and the help of some trusty products, you can sail easily to your next wash day while giving your hair brief refreshes throughout the week.
Protect & Soothe
Between wash days, you’re incredibly active! You go to and from work, take a workout class, clean the house, go to the beach, walk your dog, and do many other active things! It’s great to maintain an active lifestyle, but living a life like this can lead to build-up on your scalp and in your hair. If you’re waiting until wash day to cleanse your scalp, you’re probably going to end up with a lot of build-up on your hair throughout the week that will leave you with an itchy and unbalanced scalp. Nobody wants that!
To prevent this, protect the scalp, or even soothe an already irritated scalp, we recommend using Keune Care Derma Sensitive Lotion between your washes. This leave-in lotion is designed to calm and hydrate unbalanced and sensitive scalps. It not only soothes irritated scalps but works to combat further redness and irritation. This leave-in lotion will help keep your scalp clean and protected while also softening your strands until you can give your hair the full care treatment on wash day!
Another obstacle you might face in between your wash days is your hair slowly, but surely, losing its lift. On day one, your hair is voluminous and full of life, but by day four, you notice that your hair is flat, dull, and lackluster. If you see this being the case for you, it’s time for a reboot! Bring life back into your hair with KEVIN.MURPHY POWDER.PUFF. This volumizing powder is all you need to bring your hair back to its voluminous glory. All you have to do is shake a tiny amount of the powder onto your dry hair, massage it between your fingers, and watch your hair come back to life!
When your hair is on its last leg and you still have another day or two until wash day, it’s time to break out the big guns! That’s right, we’re talking about dry shampoo! For maximum oil absorption and maximum clean, we recommend using Redken Deep Clean Dry Shampoo. This is a high-performance dry shampoo that works hard to eliminate excess oil and refresh your hair. This isn’t going to be a dry shampoo to use on day one, but rather one to use a day or two before wash day when you need that extra TLC, but don’t have the time for a full wash. All you need to do is hold the product 6-8 inches away from your hair and spray it onto the oiliest parts of your hair! This incredible dry shampoo will refresh your hair and leave it looking and feeling clean!
