Here’s What Happened When I Stopped Washing My Hair So Much

By Andrea Arterbery

I used to be the woman who washed her naturally curly hair at least twice per week. Most of the reasoning stems from the fact that I exercise quite often (at least three to four times per week) and I always wanted my hair to be clean. However, as a fairly new mom, it’s easy for me to get busy with work, life and juggling everything else in-between. So, there were a few weeks there where I didn’t have any time at all to wash my hair. Gasp! But, instead of this being a horrible thing, it actually turned out to be a pretty awesome for my hair. Here’s why and the Carol’s Daughter products I used to help:

1. I no longer experience as much hair breakage. I would straighten my hair using a blow dryer, round brush and flat iron. While I did use heat protectant spray before flat ironing my hair, I did find that it was difficult to stop the breakage. So, instead of washing my hair with shampoo, I started using the Rhassoul Clay Enriching Conditioner. I apply it to my hair while in the shower, comb through with a wide-tooth comb and let it sit for about 10 minutes. After rinsing, I noticed that my curls were super soft and shiny.

2. My dry scalp and brittle ends disappeared. Another thing that I sometimes find myself battling is a dry, flaky scalp and brittle ends. However, I’ve found that using a weekly hair mask like the Rhassoul Clay Softening Hair Mask on my hair at least once per week stopped it. I like to massage it into my hair and then I apply a shower cap and let it sit for about 10 minutes before rinsing out.

3. When I did wash my hair, I was able to get a deeper clean. In between my co-washing and deep moisture mask usage, I washed my hair with the Rhassoul Clay Sulfate-Free Shampoo. What I love most about it is that it thoroughly cleansed my hair without leaving it feeling rough or dry. Overall, I felt like the shampoo gave me an extra deep, refreshing clean.
