HAIR MYTH : oily scalp

 don't wash your hair everyday !! your scalp KNOWS how long you go in between washes if it only has 24hours to excrete its NATURAL oils in order to NATURALLY moisturize your ends it's going to seem "OILY" ; your ends NEED that oil to survive : 

wash at least every other day

my routine : 
day 1 - WASH + blow dry + heat style
day 2 - restyle (try not to use any heat)
day 3 - BRAID day ( or up day ... or hat day)
repeat ...
