Even if you have an extra-oily scalp (and therefore feel you can't go more than a day without washing your hair), celeb hairstylist Jen Atkin is about to debunk that myth. It doesn't matter what kind of hair you have, if you prep your hair correctly, you can go up to four long days with one blow dry. "It's all about using the right products and tools," confirmed the pro.
Surprisingly, it all starts with your shampoo.
Use Prep Product Pre-Blowout: "Out of the shower, it's really important to use a priming product on your hair before you start the blowout," noted the expert. But what kind of hair you have will determine the type of product you prep with. "If you have fine to medium textured hair, use a volumizing spray or a wave spray. I also love using mousse at the roots for added volume," recommended Jen. "And then if you have thick, really frizzy hair, it's important to do a treatment once a week and also use a finishing cream or a hair oil before you start the blowout." Doing this will make sure your hair is hydrated and protected.
The celeb stylist's final word of advice? "Everyone's hair is different, so I think it's really important people ask their hairstylist what their hair type is," she said.
