I asked my stylist if I should wash it the day of or not, and she said to wash and dry it–that she had no idea who had started the whole dirty hair thing, and that she would “make it dirty” herself with product. I only wash mine a couple of times a week, and it’s fine and thin, but I definitely have the most volume on day 1.

flower2324:  I washed mine the night before. My main gripe was being told to minimise my use of conditioner (to keep my hair from being too slippy), but there was no way I wasn’t going to use any. My hair likes tangling far too much for that.

flower2324:  Your stylist should be able to wash and blowdry it for you and then style it. We did that a lot at the salon I worked at.

I’m washing mine the morning of! Better to be comfortable. They can just add a lot of hairspray it will be fine!

flower2324:  I also have very greasy hair, and my stylist told me the same. I washed it 2 days before the wedding and my hair was fne, not greasy at all and had enough texture fo rthe stile I wanted.

I washed it the night before. I did curls down. I trusted my stylist, and it paid off 🙂

flower2324:  I am glad you posted this! I was actually wondering the same thing! My wedding is in 15 days and I wont have a hair trial 🙁 (destination wedding) so I wasnt sure what to do- I have that greasy limp hair that looks great the day I wash it and the next morning it is so blah so I didnt want to not wash it for a day and have it all greasy limp and gross.

flower2324:  I think it depends on your hair.  My hair is super fine and she told me to wash it the morning of, and not to put any product in it. The maid of honor and flower girls were told NOT to wash their hair the day of, but the night before. …They all have lovely thick hair I wish I had :/

I’m a hairstylist, and agree with washing the night before for MOST people. It does hold better when the hair isn’t too soft and has a little grit. However some hair does get super greasy quick and looks best the day of, so I think if that is the case you should wash it the day of and maybe have her even blowdry it herself so she can get some lift at the root. If it’s just shine you’re worried about, once its curled with product it should look plenty shiny.

Hair stylist here…It totally depends on the hair type. I only shampoo once a week, but I have coarse hair. My hair won’t do anything on wash day.  I would suggest maybe doing it last thing before you go to bed and blow dry it. If you’re good with a round brush use it. It will help put extra body in your hair. This will save you some time in the morning, too.

sweetness09:  I also second this if having her blow it out for you is an option. That’s probably best!

I agree with other posters. You know your hair. Mine is so thick it can take 30-40 minutes to blow dry, or if I let it dry naturally up to 6 hours depending on the weather, and I can get away with washing it 2-3 times a week but my sister’s is super fine, gets greasy quickly but dries in a flash. I would probably wash mine early morning or day before, whereas she could get away with on the day at whatever time she wanted. 

Different hair changes how you treat it.
