Before the appointment, I prepped myself, a daily hair rinser, for a lifestyle change. I hoarded dry shampoo (Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam [$35], you're my everything!), but when Jeanise said it's best to wash once every 10 days, I audibly gasped. We ended up compromising by agreeing that I'd rinse every seven days. I was still terrified.
I'm writing this post exactly one week after coloring my hair. I was able to go five days without washing, which honestly felt like an Olympic-level victory for me.
Along with the aforementioned Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam, I also love R + Co Skyline Dry Shampoo ($36). It pumps out like a baby powder, instead of a spray, so I can rub it into my hair as opposed to just spritzing over strands. I find that using my hands to apply product lets it really settle in and leaves no white powder on my head.
