Only Wash Your Hair Once a Week | I go seven days with out washing my hair!

By Grover Koelpin 56 comments

Hey guys. What’s up? So today I am going to
show you kind of what it takes to get seven days out of your hair. This video is super
long. I’m sorry about that. I tried to make it as short as possible so I’m going to make
the intro really short so I hope you guys enjoy this video! If you have any questions,
comments or concerns, let me know down below and I will try my best to get back to you.
Okay so this is day one. I just got out of the shower and all I’ve done so far is just
towel dry my hair. I’m going to go ahead and spray my leave in conditioner in. This is
Healthy Sexy Hair. I am going to work on brushing my hair out. Just going from the bottom to
the top. Really nothing too crazy. Now that it’s all brushed out I’m going to go ahead
and put my part where I want it to be. Last but not least, I like to put in just a little
bit of product to help kind of hold my curl whenever I do go back and curl it. For that
I like to use this product right here. It’s called Confixor. It’s a liquid gel. I’m going
to take like a good handful of that and then just work it all through out my hair. Since
it is a liquid it’s a lot easier to spread and work into your hair than just a normal
gel would be. Then I’m going to put my hair up into my Turbie Twist. My old faithful and
just let it air dry from there. It’s now day two. I didn’t have anything to do yesterday
so I just let my hair air dry and then I threw it up into this super, super messy pony tail
situation because I went running. Okay so now that I’ve got it all brushed out, I’m
going to go ahead and section everything and curl it to last me hopefully the rest of the
week. Usually I can get a full week out of curling my hair like this so I’m going to
just quickly show you guys what I do. So I’m going to use just a stander one inch curling
wand, iron, whatever. You can get these pretty much anywhere. I think I honestly got this
one at the grocery store the last time I was there. It was maybe like $13 or something.
Also going to be using some little baby claw clips to separate my hair and kind of the
most important thing I’m going to be using is pin curl clips. These are the little singular
clip prongs that I’m going to be using in my hair when it’s kind of like cooling off.
So I will typically split my hair into about three sections but I do four sections on this
side and three sections on this side just because I have a little bit more hair on this
side, obviously. So that was basically it for sectioning. I just have this one little
layer down on the bottom now that I’m going to start curling. I think it’s really really
important with no matter what kind of curl you’re doing to start with the top of your
hair and then just work your way down. Kind of holding a little bit of extra heat on the
top of your hair because the ends of your hair honestly really hardly need any heat,
if any at all. Some people leave them out all together. I like to curl them. Then whenever
I go to release it I’m just kind of going to unclamp it and gently let it go. Then I’m
actually going to take the curl and just kind of push it back up into where it’s still like
in a pretty little curl shape. And then I’m going to pin it to my head with one of the
pin curls. You want to make sure that you’re kind of pinning it up against your head. You
want to go through the middle of it but pinning the inner most section to where the pins kind
of touching your scalp. If that makes any sense at all. If it doesn’t I’m so sorry.
So then once again I’m going to catch that curl and curl it back up against my scalp
and I’m going to pin it into place. The reason I like to pin all my curls is because they
can cool off in that shape and I really think that makes a huge huge difference if you’re
trying to get your curls to last for a long time to get them to cool off in a curl shape
rather than just hang there because you know gravity is going to be gravity and want to
pull it down so. Now I’m going to go ahead and repeat the same steps all over my head.
And I’m done. This is what it looks like when it’s all pinned up. I kind of like to leave
it as long as I can so to be continued. It will probably be like this until I go to bed.
It’s probably been about, it’s probably been about three hours since I did my hair and
pinned it up. Just been doing lots of things. And everything has stayed pretty dang well
in place. Everything is stable. So now I’m just going to go ahead and take out all my
curly curls. Pretty much at this point, I like to go ahead and just pretend that I’m
Martha Washington. That is it! So this is what it looks like when it’s still in it’s
crazy curly just been released from hair prison state. So what I like to do now is kind of
just go through and break up where I had it all sectioned cause–woah. Totally forgot
one. We have a straggler! I’m just going to break up kind of all those partings. Kind
of just massaging at the scalp where they were all kind of sitting. Then there you go.
Pretty much have big major porn star hair at this point. But I always always curl my
hair before I go to sleep so I always sleep on this so it’s not so crazy. So I guess I
will see you guys in the morning! So this is what my hair looks like after a night of
sleeping on it. Pretty much still the same just kind of calmed down a little bit. I am
about to go running so I just thought I’d show you guys what I do with my hair when
I do go running. I’m just going to use one of my faithful claw clips and claw it into
place. Then I’m going to take my sweat band, pull that up so none of my sweat gets in my
hair area at all and this is pretty much all I do. It’s the end of day three. I went to
work today, I went to the dentist today. I went running today. I did a whole bunch of
stuff today and my hair is still totally fine. Totally normal. Nothing going on with it.
I didn’t have to use dry shampoo today or do anything to it and this is how it is. What’s
up? It’s day four. Can you believe it? This is usually kind of the day that I like my
hair the best. Just to throw that out there. However when I did wake up this morning I
had a little bit of issues right here. You can see there’s some kind of separating going
on from my hair being kind of dirty so I’m going to go ahead and attack that with some
dry shampoo. And there you go. Ready for the day. Then I’m going to let it sit for a hot
second. Okay then I’m going to just go through and brush it all out and shake it off! There
we go. Good as new. No one can tell that I haven’t washed my hair in about four days
now so I’m ready to face the day. What’s up? So I just got home from running and I just
jumped in the shower and now I’m here so I thought I’d show you guys what it looks like
when I take my hair down. There we go! I haven’t used any dry shampoo on it today. I don’t
think I really will need to actually. I might have to use just a little bit on these sides
just because I was kind of sweating out there. It’s super hot outside. But other than that,
everything’s held up pretty well. There’s no big major issues going on so. I think this
is pretty much going to be it for the day. What’s up? So today is day six. I think? I
had my hair down earlier today. I had to go to work for a client and then I did actually
use some dry shampoo this morning. Pretty much all around this top area because I’ve
been running a lot lately and the sweat was kind of, it was kind of in there so I dry
shampooed that out this morning. And then whenever I went running, I put my hair up
into these little baby Princess Leia buns. So now I’m going to take them down. There
we go. Overall It’s a little frizzy but it’s day six. I’m kind of expecting some of that
anyway. But it’s held up really well. Everything’s still curly. It still looks intentional. I’m
not mad at this at all. So I’m pretty excited. I’m going to go play bingo tonight with a
couple of my friends and that’s about it. Nothing too crazy. Good morning! It is day
seven. It is the final day which means I will be washing my hair tomorrow. Probably not
today because I’m lazy like that. But I’m about to go running so I just kind of threw
my hair up into a little bun. Little sassy ponytail. Really nothing special going on
here because I’m about to go running so I don’t really care. But yea. This is pretty
much what I’m going to do with my hair for the day. Usually on the last day, I don’t
really care what my hair looks like. Because I know I’m going to wash it tomorrow anyway.
But yea this is it. I hope you guys enjoyed this video. If you liked it, go ahead and
give it a thumbs up. So I know that you liked it. If you have a second or want to, go ahead
and subscribe to my channel and I’ll be making more videos probably about every week or so.
If you guys have any questions or want any tips on how to keep your hair going strong
for seven days, leave it in the comments down below and I will try and get back to you as
soon as possible. I hope you all have a great week and I will see you next time. Bye!

I love you!! thanks to you I got the courage to dye my hair purple. I love it! I've been using dry shampoo but I feel it leaves my hair color looking opaque and in some area it looks like it's turning gray. I use batiste and try to spray a moderate amount. I will also try silk pillow covers. I live in the caribbean and humidity in the hair is a constant battle, also I live a few minutes from the beach and I feel that I can't go that often as I wish so I don't damage the haircolor.

The most disgusting feeling to me is getting up in the morning and not washing my hair. It's not even greasy but it smells like sleep😂 I can't go one day without washing and I have no split ends, no breakage or anything. So why do some people go one whole week without washing it?

I too am an avid runner but when I am done I am pouring sweat from my scalp. So my beautiful blowout looks like crap the next day. I only wash my hair once a week too. If I don't my hair literally starts breaking and looks very damaged. I have been been only washing it once a week for years. My question is, how is it after a run your hair still looks smooth and beautiful.?? Besides dry shampoo what do you do? I have to wear it in a pony tail or a side braid for the remainder of the week because it gets so frizzy. 🙁

Loving the hair colour! After bleaching my hair, I've been trying to wash it less to avoid damage. So far, I can go about four days but I really have noticed a difference in the amount of oil I produce and it takes a lot longer for my scalp to get greasy now. Thanks for the video – can't wait til i'm able to go a week.

Hi! Your hair looks amazing! Very inspiring 😉
What do you spray it with when you've curled it? I can't for the life of me get a hairbrush through my hair when I've put hairspray in it. Do you use some kind of special magic hairspray?

I go as long as I can, but I have only ever made it to day 4. I have super greasy scalp. No amount of dry shampoo will help after day 3.
Your hair is beautiful, by the way.

about how long did it take for your scalp to adjust to one day a week? like I'm trying and I'm down to two days sometimes one. but I usually have to go pretty heavy with dry shampoo on day two or three to make it last the rest of the week. I know you've had this routine forever now, but you've haven't always. right?

Hey! I have a few questions.
1. If you use dry shampoo every day, won't it build up on your scalp?
2. After you go running, do you rinse your hair with water to get the sweat out, or do you just tie it up? I would think that sweat mixed with dry shampoo would get kinda gross, but idk.
3. Do you use any sort of uv protection for your hair? I've heard that sunlight can easily fade colored hair.
I adore your hair btw, purple is my favorite color 😀

Growing up I would only wash my hair once a week and my hair was amazing. Then puberty hit and I got this demititis. So now I have no other choice but to wash my hair every 3 to 4 days. It sucks because my hair was so healthy when I was younger and I know it's because I wasn't washing it so much.

Im a guy with super thick long hair. I only wash and condition mine once a week. Sometimes once every two weeks. Once your hair gets used to It. It doesnt feel dirty. Plus doing mine takes about a hour total. So once a week is enough.
