Never WOULD I have ever thought… in 1000 years… I would start a blog. I’ve never been the type of girl who liked to read or journal or get all sappy. But here I am. My first blog ever. So if you are reading this, thank you for being here and witnessing the madness that is currently happening.
My goal: to share life things with you. From all things hair to which diapers I buy for my child. It’s a big stretch, I know. But I know you will benefit one way or another.
The first topic I want to tackle is simple: washing your hair.
Oh! And before we get started… If you are into proper grammar or things being 100% correct, just stop reading this riiiiggght here. Because you will probably die. Sorry, not sorry.
During this whole COVID shut down, people have been on the bandwagon of not washing their hair and quite frankly, I think it's a very bad idea. Based on my personal experience, I believe hair should be washed every 3rd to 4th-day MAX. At the beginning of COVID, I went 9 days (don't judge) without washing my hair, and I paid for that GREATLY. The sores, dandruff, acne I experienced afterward was unbearable. I am still having trouble recovering from it. I have made the effort to wash my hair every 3 days, and I am happy to inform you that I've made a comeback.
I know there are a lot of dry shampoos on the market (which I have my fair share of) but nothing keeps dandruff down like a nice exfoliation with your fingernails or even a brush tbh. Something to remember is no matter how good the dry shampoo is, it will st
ill lay on top of the scalp. So just use it responsibly, okay?!
If you are having scalp issues, start with washing more frequently. If you are already doing that, then look at the quality of the product you are using. (Don't buy crap from Target, ASK YOUR STYLIST!!!) If you don't have one, GET ONE! (Did you hear Woody’s voice from Toy Story when he talks about getting a moving buddy? The first Toy Story, of course — the OG.)
Lastly, if you are still having scalp issues, START DRINKING more water. I recommend drinking your weight, divided by two, in ounces of water. (I.E.: If you weigh 200 pounds, divide that by two. You should be consuming 100 ounces of water a day.)
So tell me… Are you having scalp issues too, or was I the only one???
And what is your favorite dry shampoo? Here is mine
You are so welcome for all this knowledge that has been dropped on you.
