Hair Training

Hair training might actually be harder than training for a half marathon, but the end result is worth it.

My hair is naturally very shiny but it also gets greasy after one day of wear. I took on the habit of washing my hair every single day to make sure that my hair didn’t look the slightest bit greasy. The only problem is that washing your hair every single day is super unhealthy for it and it can actually make it more greasy. Who knew right?! So for the past few weeks I have started to train my hair, in order to reduce the amount of unhealthy oils it produces and the build up of the oils (which makes it look greasy!).

I am going to take you through the 5 day cleansing process I did. This is the method that has started working on my hair resulting in less oil build up but it may not work for all hair types!

Day 1:

  • Shower in the morning
  • Air dry hair at least 60% and then finish by blow drying
  • Style with as little heat as possible

Day 2:

  • Style with no heat (leaving hair down as is or putting it up)

Day 3:

  • Dry shampoo
  • Bun, pony tail or braid

Pro tip: I find that the best way to hide greasy hair is in braids! You can try two dutch braids or a crown braid to cover your greasy locks!

Day 4:

  • Wash with water
    • This is the step where I have begun experimenting! Some stylists recommend washing your hair with apple cider vinegar and though I haven’t tried this yet I have used fresh lime juice which made my hair extremely soft!
  • Air dry completely
  • Bun, pony tail or braid

Day 5:

Every night sleep with your hair in a high pony tail secured with a scrunchie. This will avoid grease from roots getting to the ends of your hair!

Repeat the steps until you start noticing your hair producing less oil buildup. You can then start to wash your hair after 3 days and it should be more manageable and less greasy then before you started the cleanse!
