While you can’t beat the feeling of freshly washed hair, we all know that one of the major secrets to healthier strands is to wash less. (Our hairdresser tells us just about every time we go.) So, we took it upon ourselves to train our hair. The result? Less washes and more messy buns.
4 Tips for Second-Day Hair
When it comes to second-day hair, there are four simple ways to bring new life to it.
1. Get rid of grease.
Using a good detox shampoo on wet hair in the shower isn’t the only solution to getting rid of greasy hair. Believe it or not, a shower isn’t the only way to refresh your strands. One of our favorite (and easiest) ways to get rid of grease is with Living Proof’s Perfect hair Day™ Dry Shampoo. This refreshing spray actually cleans dirty hair, while eliminating sweat, odor, and oil. Tiffany recommends starting with Dry Shampoo. Simply shake the can to activate and spray 6-10 inches away from your dry hair. Then, wait 30 seconds before massaging or brushing through. (This gives the powders time to activate and work their magic.)
And speaking of powders, don’t let the white stuff scare you. We formulated our dry shampoo with oil-absorbing powders, that don’t cause scalp buildup. Our Healthy Hair Molecule allows the white powders to get shaken out by reducing the surface friction of hair strands.
2. Tame frizz.
Sometimes second- or third-day hair can have a life of its own. (No really, where did all of that crazy flyaway hair suddenly come from?) Tiffany recommends taming them with No Frizz Instant De-Frizzer. It’s a dry conditioning spray that instantly tames up to 92% of frizz on dry hair, while adding softness and shine. Just spray in a sweeping motion, focusing on the mid-shaft of your strands to the ends.
Pro tip: You can also prevent frizz by sleeping on a silk pillowcase, or browse our entire collection of anti frizz hair products.
3. Refresh next-day curls.
If you have a wavy or curly hair type, you may find your hair feeling a little flat after a good night’s sleep. (Goodbye, bounce?) Tiffany assured us, you can scrunch your curls or waves right back into place. For a curl refresher, try No Frizz Weightless Spray. It’s a smoothing, styling spray that eliminates frizz by blocking humidity. Spray it throughout strands and manually scrunch and twirl your hair into a curl or loose wave. If you need to add texture and volume to your flat or fine hair, try using some volumizing hairspray.
4. Condition and protect.
For one final step, Tiffany swears by Restore Perfecting Spray. Not only does it protect hair from damaging UV rays, it’s also extra conditioning. Oh, and it keeps your unwashed hair smelling fresh, so you don’t have to worry on day four.
