A lot of people always ask how we don’t wash our hair.

Sometimes we can go a week without washing our hair, and that’s because it’s not good to wash your hair every day especially if you have chemically-treated hair.

You also don’t want to get a blowout at home or the salon and then wash your hair after two days.

So, we will show you how to make your blowout last. Let’s get right into it.

Tools and materials:

  • Hair clips
  • Hair ties
  • Silk pillowcase
  • Brush
  • Dry shampoo
Loose hair tie

1. Keep your hair loose and dry

I make a blowout last by wearing it straight throughout the day and then using a really loose hair tie to keep my hair in place while I’m sleeping. 

Putting hair up

I like to use the headband version of these hair ties, and I’ll do a loose pony on top of my hair so it’s not getting trapped underneath my pillowcase. The looser the better so there isn’t a dent in your hair that you’ll have to iron out.

I recommend sleeping on a silk pillowcase. This is going to help prolong your blow dry or flat iron.

Keeping the room cool is also going to help keep your hair straight. If you’re too hot or sweaty, your hair will start to revert.

Clipping bangs back

2. Keep your bangs out of your face

If you’re just at home and you want to keep your bangs in place without having to do them all over again, here’s a quick hack.

Take a basic cotton square and clip your bangs in place. This will help keep your hair out of your face and hairline, where you’re most likely to gather sweat.

The cotton square will prevent the clip from leaving any indentations in your hair.

Using dry shampoo

4. Use dry shampoo

I start using dry shampoo on day two or three, depending on the texture of my hair, the humidity level, and how warm it is.

Put dry shampoo mostly on your scalp where your hairline starts to get oily. 

Using dry shampoo

After spraying it, give your hair a good shake to get all of the powder absorbed into your hair.

Then, use your fingers or a thick, bristle brush to brush it out. 

Double buns

5. Put your curls into double buns to make them last

Curls are even more complicated to make last for a week, but I swear by this technique that I do every night. 

Making double buns

You’ll want to clip away your bangs before trying this, as this technique can screw them up. Part your hair into two sections and brush them. 

Making double buns

When putting your hair up, make sure you put it high on your head so you don’t sleep on the bun.

Otherwise, it’ll be uncomfortable and you risk the bun undoing itself at night.

Making double buns

Curl the ponytail in the direction of the curl. Don’t go in the opposite direction or you’ll undo the curl overnight.

Making double buns

Wrap it around itself and clip it into a high bun.

Leave the tail out of the bun so you get a beachy wave rather than a tight curl.

Repeat on the other side. Unclip the front part of your hair and go to sleep!


Here’s my hair the morning after! All I did was give them a light brush; the curls are still intact, and I’m ready to start my day!

With this technique, I don’t start using dry shampoo until day three or four.

Top knot bun

6. Tie away the front of your hair to hide oil

By day 5, my curls start to go downhill so I tend to put my curls into a top knot or a high pony.

It’s super trendy and hides how oily my hair is.

Teasing hair

Tie the front off with a hair tie and tease it to get that volume at the top.

Making bun

Wrap it into a little bun and bobby pin it away. Don’t worry about making it look too structured.

Half ponytail

An alternative look is a half-up half-down ponytail.
