Second-Day Hacks to Fake Freshly Washed Hair

Who says you need to wash your hair every day to get chic, healthy-looking locks? Here are some hair hacks to help you skip a few lather sessions.

When it comes to certain basic beauty rituals, there are some practices that are so universally recognized and followed, they’ve become standard. Things like washing your makeup off every night and wearing sunscreen every day are such no-brainers that we don’t question them. And for good reason. Some things are obviously good for you (and your skin) so you continue to do them, no questions asked.

When it comes to hair, things get a little trickier. The conversation around how often you should wash your hair has been ongoing for what feels like ages, and the debate shows no signs of slowing down. While some people insist on sticking to a daily wash schedule, most stylists and hair pros discourage washing hair daily, insisting that the act of shampooing every day could strip your hair and scalp of its natural, beneficial oils. Fair enough.

And while we’ll welcome with open arms any excuse to skip a shampoo session (or two), we can’t ignore the elephant in the room: greasy, oily roots. Sure, your ends will certainly benefit from letting some natural oils build up, but what about the visible, unwanted signs of unwashed hair? Enter the best dry shampoo for second-day hair: L’Oréal Paris Stylista #Undone Volumizing Dry Shampoo.

Formulated with oil-absorbing rice starch, this dry shampoo is all you need in your arsenal when it comes to greasy hair. Simply shake the can, spray it into your roots and massage it evenly into your hair. In mere seconds, you’ll have fresh-looking roots with no signs of oil or grease. Worried about missing that just-out-of-the-shower scent? The irresistible fragrance of L’Oréal Paris Stylista #Undone Volumizing Dry Shampoo will leave your hair smelling fresh all day long.

If your main second-day hair concern is less about oil and more about volume (we know that limp, lifeless strands can be a major issue when skipping shampoos), fear not: L’Oréal Paris Stylista #Undone Volumizing Dry Shampoo is the best dry shampoo to reach for when you need killer volume—fast. Thanks to its zero white residue, this dry shampoo can be used in a multitude of ways, including as a hair volumizer. Even if your hair is freshly washed, you can spray this dry shampoo into dry hair for an extra boost of volume, plus a hit of fresh fragrance, too. While the rice starch absorbs excess oil, it prevents hair from sticking to your scalp, making it appear much more voluminous. Talk about a win-win situation.

If ponytails, braids and buns are your thing, use L’Oréal Paris Stylista #Undone Volumizing Dry Shampoo to freshen up your roots and add some volume before you tie your strands back. Trust us: You’ll end up with a much chicer, more polished chignon, high ponytail or whatever updo you choose. For even more oomph, run your fingers or a comb through your hair to evenly spread the dry shampoo around, ever-so-slightly scrunching your locks as you go.

After a couple of weeks of using L’Oréal Paris Stylista #Undone Volumizing Dry Shampoo and essentially “training” your hair to produce less excess oil between washes, you’ll find that you won’t even be fazed by second-day hair. Translation: hello, third- and fourth-day hair!
