If you've read my hair regimen under the My Regimen tab at the top of the page, then you'll notice that I say in it that I wash my hair every 1-2 weeks. This cold season so far though, I'm finding myself washing my hair less frequently. It's more like every 2-3 weeks pass before I wash it.
Why this longer period in between washes? There are two reasons:
1) Sheer Laziness
The longer my hair gets, the less bothered I wanna be with it and the less time I want to spend on it. My hair has been growing like a weed and with the added length, it's just a lot more of everything to do and more time. I wear up-do's that take 10 mins or less to create most of the time now that are protective yet grown-n-sexy and I go on about my business. I find myself not messing with my hair much outside of keeping it moisturized and tangle free.
2) It's Just Not Necessary
in this stage of my hair, at least. I'm finding that my hair doesn't need to be washed frequently and because washing highly textured hair, rather it's with shampoo or conditioner, is somewhat of a "traumatic" experience to our hair. My koily hair is more fragile than straight, wavy and looser curl textures so washing it less is making it less subject to protein loss and accelerated weathering.
