For the past 6 months, I’ve been trying to embrace my naturally curly hair. The more I learn about my curl pattern and curly hair, the more I understand the important of not washing my hair as often. When you wash your hair too often, you might remove natural oils that benefit it.

I personally like to wash it every 5-7 days- instead of following a strict schedule, I wash it when I feel I really need it. I do it for the curl benefits, because it saves water (more on that later), and because with a little toddler, sometimes I don’t have much time to get ready.

Every time I share how often I wash my hair on social media, I get questions like “but you work out every day, how do you keep it fresh and pretty?”.

So let me tell you about the Waterl<ss products I’m using and absolutely loving!

But first, let me tell you a bit about the brand.

Waterl<ss started to improve the non-wash day experience for a diverse set of people and hair types. In the testing phase of the launch, Cape Town, South Africa announced it was 3 months away from running out of water for their city of 4 million people. The products proved to give clean, conditioned, and great smelling hair without using a single drop of water.

My Waterl<ss routine:
I’ve tried MANY dry shampoos and I was very impressed with the no-residue formula of the Waterl<ss No Residue Dry Shampoo. It contains no parabens and no sulfates. You just shake the can well, spray on your roots, and you can brush out or run your fingers through it. I try to userun my fingers, so I don’t mess with my curl pattern - but if I’m using a curling iron to reshape the curls, I brush them out a bit.

I was super excited to try the Waterl<ss Instant Moisture Dry Conditioner as it tames flyaways, frizz, and dry ends (3 things that are definitely related to curly girl problems!). To use it: shake the can, spray your hair from mid to the ends, and run your fingers/brush it out. My hair feels moisturized without the need of water, and it doesn’t weigh it down. Total new favorite!

Tell me about your non-wash routine! How often do you wash your hair? Would you try these out! You can grab these products online at Walmart, here.
