A lot of you babes have asked about my hair…

Welp. I’ll let you all in a dirty [ literally ] little secret.

I don’t really wash it.

I know what you’re thinking!!! Ahhh- OMFG- ewwwww, what a sickie!!! But wait! I use tons of dry shampy, so the texture [ for my hair at least ] is wayyyyy better than if I washed on the reg. Oh, & in case you’re wondering: I wash it two times a week.

Anyway here’s a peak inside my hair tricks + tips…

On a lazy day I’ll throw my hair in a ballerina bun or a top knot. Example:

If I don’t have time to blow dry my blonde mop, I’ll allow it to air dry & spray some surf/sea mist in it [ << so much healthier for hair; blow drying is not my fav ]. Example:

Ok now for the product deets.

First off let me introduce you to God’s gift to hair. The “Wet” Brush. If you don’t have one, go run & buy one.

I could literally not do my hair with out this lil’ dime. The metallic blue brush goes right through my hair in one swipe, even if it’s a huge rat’s nest. AND!!! It doesn’t pull my hair out. A real life-changer:

+ Lauryn’s Favie Hair Products:

{ Side note: I like split ends : ))) hippie chic hair is the best. }

1.} Maxi-Hair Vitamin: this supports hair/nail growth. I take one a day.

2.} TRESemmé Dry Shampoo: obviously removes any gross crap/sweat after a workout.

3.} Moroccanoil: this scent is amaze! I use a dab of this when I get out of the shower & a dab after my hair is dry.

4.} Biolage Hair Sunscreen: yeeeeuppp- protecting your hair for the sun should be done daily. I spray two or three sprays of this hair sunscreen on my hair every morning. Oh, & it smells like coconuts.

5.} Shampoo: I mix it up. I don’t want my hair to get used to the same shampoo. Some of my favies: KerastasePaul Mitchell, &/or Extra Volume Moroccanoil shampoo.

6.} Lanza’s Swim & Sun Conditioner: loveeee how there’s sunscreen in it & then twice a month I’ll do Lanza’s deep conditioner treatment. I avoid my roots like the plague with conditioner; it makes them greasy if product gets too close to the scalp.

7.} Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom & Honey Perfume: I am obsessed with spraying a light perfume directly on my brush before running it through my hair. I spray the Jo Malone into The Wet Brush to keep my hair smelling fresh & feminine.

8.} Chi Pro Blow Dryer: if I’m forced to spend a daunting hour & half washing/blow drying my locks, I’ll use the Chi Pro. It’s light on the hair & provides less damage than other blow-dryers, so it’s worth the extra $$. Plus. It’s pretty in pink.

9.} Philip B. ‘Maui Wowie’ Beach Mist & Bumble and Bumble’s Surf Spray: for sexy, beachy waves these two products get the job done. I use both together.

10.} Coconut Oil: once a month I add tons of organic coconut oil to my hair, let it stay on for an hour or two, & then rinse it off. <<< This works wonders!!!

P.S. I also stay away from rubber bands with those ugly metal things on them. Goody’s ‘Ouchless’ or sparkly Twistband’s are my fav hair ties ; ). Annnndd when I do use hair spray, it’s Dove: Extra Hold. The travel-sized version is in my purse at.all.times- it smells delish too! As far as straight irons go, they sick me out. Too much heat.

My biggest tip: LESS IS MORE.

Soooo…spillllll: what’s your hair secrets?!

    Have you tried Ameka Oil? I love the smell. I use the shampoo and conditioner. I try to not wash my hair as much, but I am too obsessive about it. I gotta try that brush though! Oh, I also take the Mega Food Baby and Me prenatals for my hair skin and nails. I LOVE them.

    I loooove these tips! Now I’m going to have to spend all of my money and buy the products you love.
    I never was my hair either. My friends think I’m disgusting, but I swear that not washing my hair is the reason that it hasn’t fallen out with all of the bleaching and heat it goes through. Dry shampoo and conditioner are what save me.

    Lauryn!!!!! I’m so glad that you blogged about your amazing hair! I put my hair through so much abuse this year that I just had to chop 5 inches off:( I will definitely be following your hair guidelines;) I love coconut oil, but never thought to use it as a hair masque! Can’t wait to try that..
    You have gorgeous hair, thank you for sharing:):)

    We are similar on a lot of the hair care tricks! However, I bought the tresemme dry and loved it but after about the 4th time I used it the nozzle clogged, even with all my shaking it, and I can’t use it :( Do you have that problem? It’s the only brand I’ve found that does that. Makes me hesitant on buying it again.

    • laurynevarts
      10.18.12 at 8:26 pm (3 years ago)

      Ahhhh, no I don’t. I would return it the store and get a new one :). I really like it but I am sure there are other amazing brands too! Baby powder works if you’re in a pinch! X.

      Melody – it’s happens to me all the time, just take the sprayer nossle off and run it under hot water for a minute or two and it’ll unclog. It just gets stopped up from the shaking and spraying at different angles. Love that stuff, it’s definitely the best dry shampoo for the price!

    mmm…. I do coconut oil masks and leave it on for the whole night with a shower cap. It’s not a pretty site, but does wonders on my brittle ends! I also use it on my skin at night- works wonders at preventing wrinkles :)

    Who washes there hair anyways? I did today and I hate how it looks right after it is washed. Now that they sell dry conditioner, people really will just stop washing there hair all together.

    Other tips: only wash the scalp (it’s all you need to clean your hair). I also use one of those claw looking head massagers at night, scalp stimulation promotes hair growth so give yourself a head massage or better- make your man do it for you :)

    Doesn’t the coconut oil weight your hair down? If I put oil on my hair and even after rising it out it becomes a mopey mess.

    • laurynevarts
      10.18.12 at 9:35 pm (3 years ago)

      Nope, a little bit makes it soft. Try using a less & washing it out with shampoo. XO.

    10.18.12 at 11:57 pm (3 years ago)

    great! I know what you mean about no washing it, fresh hair is soft and flat so hard to do anything with it! If you like the dry shampoo would recommend volume powder!! That means you can wash it but than you put this shit on and its dirty again! perfect!
    Oh and Moroccan oil is good but its pure argan oil so buy that instead as much cheaper!!!You can also use almond oil!I put mine in a bun, rub that in , leave over the night and wash in the morning(u can put a towel on your pillow to protect it)!

    I got my hair cut today, and they were actually commenting on how soft my hair is, even though I colour/bleach it all the time. I definitely think that washing it less, and hardly heat styling it is the way to go!

    I use O&M products, or Kevin Murphy. I think they might be Aussie brands? Kevin Murphy dry shampoo is incredible!

    I am absolutely in love with dry shampoo! I grossed out half the people I work with saying I rarely wash it after they gave me a ton of compliments one day! haha! Gotta love freaking people out after they tell you how gorgeous your hair is.

      Try going to the beach and getting actual salt water, adding it to a spray bottle with water, and spraying it on your hair after you come out of the shower. Actual salt water does wonders if you’re trying to really attain those beachy waves. XO.

    Can you do a post about the makeup products you love? You always look so stunning and natural. Your skin has that healthy sunkissed glow! Do you have false lashes on in the first pic where you are looking down with your hair in front of your face? Your eyelashes are AMAZING! Which falsies and/or mascara are you using in that pic?

      Thank you for responding! Can’t wait for your makeup video tutorial!
      BTW.. For all the brunettes.. or any of you who can’t stand the white residue from most dry shampoos… I recommend Salon Grafix Invisible Dry Spray Shampoo ($6 from Walmart) it goes on completely clear and it smells really good! I know teasing my hair is bad, but in the rare occasions I do tease my hair I spray the dry shampoo on my roots first and it really helps hold the volume!

      Hey Tina! I bought at Urban Outfitters, but they’re out of stock. Almost the exact same one can be found here: Also: I cut the top of sweater so it was off the shoulders. It didn’t come like that. Just cut 1/2 inch off the top and it will look the same as mine. Thanks for reading babes! X.

    Hey Lauryn! I wish I could wash my hair less often, but it gets oily so easily. I have to wash my hair regularly (I’m happy if I’m able to do it every second day), but even when it’s freshly washed it does not look as good as yours. I know it’s really bad for your hair to wash it every day, so I think you washing your hairy 2 or 3 times a week is really good.
    Maybe I’m getting to it when I’m finally out of puberty!

    I love your blog and sorry for my rather bad english:)

    • laurynevarts
      10.19.12 at 1:00 pm (3 years ago)

      Try not using conditioner. Ever. It will make it way less oily. Also don’t touch your hair! Your fingers add oil. : ))) hope that helps doll!

  14. Tiffany

      10.19.12 at 12:57 pm (3 years ago)

      Dry shampoo, perfume, and a blow dryer. Dry shampoo is the key though!

    Just found your blog today thanks to LoveChugs. I love to prop the blow dryer on my hair while I have the coconut oil in it. I use a reusable shower cap to trap in the heat and just hang out for a bit while it opens my hair shaft. Then rinse with old water to close the shaft!

Over the past year and a half I have drastically changed my bad hair habits…Ya know heat, overwashing etc etc and I have seen a big difference!

    Came across your webpage through pinterest and i was psyched to see all these different ideas for my hair, especially how to keep it looking nice and ways to help it grow faster, i am also anti hair washing, i go quite a long time as well inbetween washes and my hair looks and feels so much better, i do highlight my hair but bc i dont wash it so often or dry it that often either i can longer inbetween highlights and my hairdresser is always amazed at how good the color still looks! i just had one question about the hair growth vitamins, i am definitely interested in trying them, when i clicked on the link the instructions say to take 3-6 pills a day but i think i read that you only take one, is that correct? and you notice a difference in your hair? thanks again for all the hair advice!

    I love Dove’s dry shampoo! It doesn’t give you a nasty build up, plus it smells delish! I have naturally wavy hair plus I’m trying to grow it out so I avoid washing it as much as possible. I rarely brush my mop either! I’m in love with victoria secret beach wave spray. It has such a lovely smell, plus its cheap and seems to work well with my hair. If I had all the money in the world, i’d go buy all the products you listed! You are a beautiful human being and seem so humble. I recently stumbled across your blog, and I love everything about it!

    Its not just all conditoner that makes your hair oily, its conditioner that contains dimithicone and non-water soluable ingredients. Overusing sulfate shampoos also causes oily hair, because they are so drying your hair overproduces oil to compensate.
    I use a lighter, watery conditioner to wash my scalp and scrub the strands squeaky clean lol, a cheap brand like vo5 is fine. Then I use a thicker nicer conditioner from mid length of my hair to ends, comb out with a wide tooth comb, and rinse in cool water. Then I apply product after shower while its still damp. One product to moisturize and one for frizzless hold.

    I have long wavy hair and only shampoo twice a month when my hair starts to see some natural oil buildup. I usually put oik on my hair, just enough to coat it, and put it in a bun the night before i shampoo it, to moisturize and lessen the drying effect of the shampoo.
    When you first stop using sulfate shampoo daily, your hair may overproduce oil until it readjusts.
    I take a lot of tips from women with curly hair, they have to do more to maintain nice hair, but the basic difference is there hair can soak up more moisture so they can apply gobs of deep conditioner or oils without weighing down there hair.
    Here is a nice article on hair product ingredients
