Ladies, I need some advice! I have thin hair, and if I don’t wash it every SINGLE day it gets soo greasy. I’ve tried going every other day to get my scalp “used to it” but that didn’t do the trick. I use shampoo/conditioner and then don’t put any other products in it.
Any advice? I’ve heard of some people not using shampoo at all.. what do you use then?

You could always try dry shampoo. I’ve never used it, but a lot of bees have suggested it before.
I only wash my hair once a week, but that’s because I have wavy/curly hair. It works for me better.
Good luck! Hope we can help you find a solution that works best for you!

Google “No Poo,” you use vinegar instead. My friend tried it and liked it for a few days, but then just couldn’t keep up with it. It did have some good info on the websites though about how it gives your hair a break from all the product and makes it less oily and healthier overall.

I wash mine every day for the same reason. I didn’t realize it was out of the ordinary to do so!

I only use conditioner to “wash” my hair each morning.

I’ve tried different versions of “no poo” as well. I’ve tried washing every other day, or just washing with conditioner or using dry shampoo…I’m in the same boat as you. My hair is very healthy and shiny and strong, but thin and fine and my “second day” hair is usually flat and greasy. So I’m torn between the effort it takes to wash and blow dry everyday or finding another easier solution. So far no luck, I’d love to hear more suggestions….

I only wash mine a couple times a week but it’s thick, curly and generally fairly dry.
If i was you, I would try a dry shampoo. I’ve never tried it, but have heard good things.

I wash my hair every other day. If it starts looking a little oily on top in between, I rub baby powder into my scalp..it soaks up the oil

Does anyone know of a good dry shampoo that doesn’t weight the hair down? I’ve tried so many formulas (spray, powder, clay based) and none of them seem to give me the “volume” they all claim to offer…they just weigh my hair down and make it feel worse…

Thanks for the help! I have tried dry shampoo.. and it works OK.. but not great. I think I need to test out a few brands!
Maybe having thin hair is what does it? It seems all you ladies with thick hair and go longer between shampoo!

I generally wash my hair every day but on occasion I will go a second day. If your hair is thin and fine, try washing it but NOT using conditioner to see if that works for you. Also, make sure you’re using a cleansing shampoo and not one that has a lot of moisturizing. Both of those things could help. Finally, if you feel as if you need some other type of product to help style your hair without giving it a lot of build up, a light sculpting lotion like Paul Mitchell Sculpting Lotion (which I use and really like) may work without making your hair feel as if it has product in it the next day.

Additionally, overwashing your hair can and does create MORE oil because your body goes into overdrive.
You may want to just slowly decrease how often you wash your hair, and use a quality shampoo.
Dry shampoo is also an excellent alternative.

I wash mine every other day, usually, but in between I wash my bangs and then blow-dry them because that is where mine gets most greasy. I’ve also done the baby powder trick before in a moment of desperation. Lol.

I wash about every 2-3 days. I like TIGI Rockstar dry shampoo, and can sometimes go 4 days between washes if I use that. I hear that Oscar Blandi has a really good dry shampoo, but it is a bit pricey. The first week that you try it, your hair will still get oily fast if that’s what it typically does. Your body has to adjust to the change. When you stop washing the oils out everyday, typically your scalp stops over producing the oil. To ease into it, you could start by shampooing every other day, and using just conditioner in between. Slowly you should be able to go longer.
My hair usually looks best the 2nd-3rd day after a wash!
