Ever wish you had hair like Kim Kardashian? Yeah, don’t lie, we know you do. And the secret doesn’t just lie in Kardashian Beauty Hair products, an on-call hairstylist, or the buckets of hair extension that adorn each of the Kardashian sisters’ heads.
In an interview with beauty blog Into the Gloss, Kim admitted to sometimes washing her hair only every fifth day. She tells the website:
For my hair, I don’t wash it every day. We start out with a blowout on day one, then we go into a messier vibe the next day, and then we flat iron it and do a really sleek look on day three since that requires a little oil in the hair. Day four could be a slicked-back ponytail, and on the fifth day is when you wash it. That’s a little excessive, maybe. [Laughs]
Excessive or impressive that she can pull it off? She does have lots of products and hair gurus at her disposal. I’ve got thin hair that would need to be washed every day if it weren’t for the magical wonders of dry shampoo, so having hair that can look not just decent but still fresh and glam FOUR DAYS after washing it sounds like my wildest dream.
There actually are some legit benefits to washing your hair less, too, which is probably part of the reason why Kim and the rest of the klan have such luscious locks. The natural oils can do their thang, and using hot tools less often cuts back on hair damage.
