I didn’t try any wild or crazy methods.
I didn’t use any fancy products.
I didn’t shoot any daily photos.
It’s hardly even blog-worthy.
Even still, I can’t help but write about it.
This might not be a big deal to some, but it’s huge for me. I’ve got long hair and lots of it, sure… but it’s always been rather fine and oily. As in, I could stand to wash it twice daily – that kind of oily. I’m also lazy when it comes to products and styling, and my preference for air-drying only exacerbated the grease problem.
Until we moved. It started out by accident, as the days got away from me while we settled in and unpacked. We also only have one working bathroom, which was an adjustment for everyone. The weather was freezing, making bath time a little more more work and a little less relaxing. We also didn’t leave the house much those first few days and most of the time, my hair was up anyway.
Before I knew it, it had been five days and my hair looked better than it ever had. Ever since, I’ve made it a goal to go an entire week* between washings. Wednesday nights have become Momma’s nights. I spend a solid hour in the bathroom after the kids go to bed, candles and bubbles and music included. It’s developed into quite the indulgent tradition.
This summer’s sweaty temperatures and sticky humidity will most likely demand more frequent shampooing on my part, but I look forward to returning to a weekly routine in the fall! What about you? Are you repulsed? Or already practicing similar beauty habits? Do share your tricks!
*Of course I bathe more than once a week. I’m only somewhat weird & crunchy.
