So I’ve heard that in order to make your wedding hair “hold” better, you aren’t supposed to wash your hair the day of. But to be honest, my hair gets greasy fast and I think I would feel totally gross on my wedding day if I don’t. So I’m going to go against the hairdresser’s advice and risk having less hold and clean hair.
What are you doing regarding washing/not washing your hair?

My hairstlyist didn’t say anything about this to me so I plan to wash mine. I have psoriasis so I need to wash it every day.

its true – your hair will fall out (especially if you do curls) if you wash it. Have you tried dry shampoo? that should help with the greasiness if you wanted to try and not wash it! I’m not going to wash mine bc I’m doing curls and I know it won’t hold if I wash it.

I’ve heard the same thing, but I don’t know about this . . . I have thin hair and bangs. I will at the very least wash my bangs/scalp and perhaps leave my long hair in the back dry. I think it depends on how thin or thick your hair is.

It is very true. Hair actually needs a bit of grease in order to hold. I washed my hair the night before and I didn’t have any problems with hold the day of.

yep, definitely don’t wash your hair the day of if you can help it. i have thicker hair so it has never been a problem for me, but if your hair is thin i know a lot of people have trouble with that

yeah.. whenever you’re planning an elaborate hairstyle, they recommend that you not wash you hair the day of.. my hairstylist actually told me to wash my hair the day before and to put product in it–so that’s what i’m going to do.. the wedding day is going to be loooong, so it’s important to me that my hair survives through the driving around/picture taking, the ceremony, and the reception.

It depends on when you’re getting your hair done. Are you having an appointment the day of? In that case I’d wash your hair the night before. Hair that’s too clean won’t hold a curl very well as MissAB points out.

My appointment won’t be until after noon (haven’t exactly decided) but I’m not going to do any elaborate curls anyway. It will likely be straight/wavy. Still working out the details there, lol.

i’ll prob wash it the night before and not the day of. My hair barely holds any curl, i’ll need all the help i can get! 🙂

I agree with washing it the night before also, it won’t look too dirty the next day, but the grease should help it hold better.

I have heard this many times also…I agree with other bees…just wash your hair the night before and you shouldnt be too greasy on the day of!

Through all my years of dancing (studio, NOT anything else…) we were always told to not wash our hair the day of. I was surprised though that my wedding hair stylist requested my BMs and I wash our hair the day of, blow it dry with product, and not put it up or sleep on it to flatten it out. Check with your stylist to be sure what he/she wants you to do.

I feel your pain!!! it IS true that hair holds curl and style with a little grease in it but with that said I am washing mine the day of. I just feel…dirty if I don’t and I am just going to use the tiniest amount of shampoo and I am not using conditioner (it’ll take longer to comb out but this will help it to not be too ‘clean’ and it will hold curl/style). I have always washed my hair for big events and even though I have super straight hair naturally, it has always held up-dos and curls fine.

Check with your stylist but I believe if you do wash it the same day you’re supposed to put some sort of product (typically mousse) in it before you blow dry it.
