Usually that’s true! Check with your stylist, they will know your hair best and be able to suggest when you should wash it.

@newname_99:  I’d ask your stylist.  I wash my hair daily and my stylist said to just come in with clean hair and she can add product to it.

Check with your stylist! Some stylists suggest not washing at all. . . other stylists suggest washing, but no conditioner, etc. Every stylist has their own personal preference!

Sometimes However, the stylist can work with you. You’ll never notice that it wast washed in your pics or on your day.

Ask your stylist how she prefers it. They all have products they can put into your hair to make it “dirty.”

Generally, yes, that’s true. However, there can be some exceptions. For example, I was wearing my hair curly for my wedding day. Usually, “dirty” hair (hair that isn’t freshly shampoo-ed) holds curl better. But since my hair holds curl well no matter what, my stylist told me I could wash the morning of, use my usualy curly products, and then come to the salon.

So, I agree with others — check with your stylist to be sure! However, if you’re doing something like an updo, it’s likely you won’t want your hair to be squeaky clean.

My stylist told me to wash it the night before.  I washed it before our welcome dinner and just let it air dry (I’m not very fancy, obviously LOL) then just showered/shaved the next morning.

Yeah, it definitely depends on your hair type. My hair styles extremely well when freshly washed and blow dried. When I don’t wash it (or even if I wash it the night before), it gets greasy, flat, and doesn’t hold a style for anything.

I  plan on having it wash the day of the jack & jill party. My wedding is the next day and it will be late in the day so we will get out hair done early in the morning so it will be set and all we will have to do is make-up and get dress….I dont want to rush around or feel stress the day of..I want to enjoy and savour the day as much as I can.

I agree, it depends on your hair type! Personally, when I wash my hair it’s a lot easier to work with and it shines.

I have curly hair, and I’m getting it… curled. Go figure. 😛

But basically the loose curls I’m getting put in are more relaxed than my natural wave, so my stylist asked me to clean my hair the morning of and blow-dry it out to be as smooth as possible before she gets there.
