Kim Kardashian’s Trick to Gorgeous Hair: Only Wash Your Hair Every 5 Days
Want to know how Kim Kardashian always has such gorgeous hair?
Well, in addition to having tons of expensive hair products and professional hairstylists at her beck and call, the brunette beauty also has one other trick up her sleeve–she only washes her hair every five days.
Sounds icky and greasy, I know. But obviously, it works.
“For my hair, I don’t wash it every day,” Kardashian admits in a new interview with Into The Gloss. “We start out with a blowout on day one, then we go into a messier vibe the next day, and then we flat iron it and do a really sleek look on day three since that requires a little oil in the hair.”
Eventually the oil becomes too much, obviously, which is why Kim needs to do a mandatory updo towards the end of her no-wash cycle. “Day four could be a slicked-back ponytail,” she says. “And on the fifth day is when you wash it.”
Lately more and more women have been getting into the practice of not washing their hair every few days (some have even sworn off shampoo altogether) due to recent studies that claim that the hair–and the body–actually fare better with less washing.
Even those with oily hair are supposed to benefit from not washing their hair, as infrequent washing reportedly tricks the oil glands on your scalp to produce less oil. The idea is that the drier your scalp is, which is a result of daily washing, the oil glands in your scalp work even harder to produce more oil to combat the dryness.
Makes sense, right?
So, are you willing to try Kim’s 5-day hair washing cycle?
