Does your hair look better right after it's washed? or after a few days?

I feel like i suffer from "ugly after shower hair"
my hair is so unmanageable when it's freshly cleaned. it has no life to it and it's just.. awful.

but after a couple days go by it gets better. Then once i hit the one week mark of it being unwashed.. it's FLAWLESS.

I wash my hair maybe max. once a week. sometimes once every 2 weeks. It may sound gross.. but i guess my hair was blessed that way. It doesn't get oily at all.

  • My hair is pin straight after I shower since it's still damp and whatnot. If I end up taking a shower and sleeping pretty soon after without really brushing my hair over and over I end up with alotalotalot of big curls. I wish I new how to maintain curls better because they're kinda of really pretty. But whatever. I just brush them out and end up with my regular wavy hair. Nothing fucks up my hair like humid weather though. Like right now. Or taking a shower and immediately going outside. I end up looking like a porcupine that got electrocuted. POOOOFY.

  • Looks best right after it's washed. And it remains very nice for a few days. But you don't wanna see my hair right when I get out of bed in the morning. Keep your eyes shut. You'll regret it if you don't.

    I wish I had hair to wash.

    LOL!

    Actually I have to shave it now. But I do miss the days when I use to be able to grow it long then donate it. In thoses days I washed it every day.

  • My hair looks better when it's about 1.5" and after a day or two. But hair is a hassle to me so I always keep it below 1" and shampoo every other day ish.

    • i am planning on chopping A LOT off this summer though. right now, if my hair is straight it goes down a little farther than my belly button. i'll probably cut it to my shoulders. time for some change :P

    • Wow that's some Pocahontas shit right there. Ya shorter will probably make you hate it less lol.

  • I don't have much hair on top of my head these days. But I think my beard looks better after I get some conditioner all up in there.

  • Curly hair always looks better in the shower than out the shower. So in the shower, it looks beautiful! But once it dries, it turns into a frizzy jellyfish monster if it's not in Dutch/French/Rope Twist style. So for me, it looks the best when it's in a braid/braidout style after a couple of days.

  • It looks good day of, but styles easier after a few days of not washing it. But that doesn't happen often because I always wash my hair after working out.

    • Hair product buildup gets to be too much. I use mousse, serum, and oil on a daily basis so if I don't wash it out it's all yucky

    • when i use lots of product, i'll definitely wash it more often. but i don't really use any product on a daily basis.

    • Well that's probably why it works out for you! I'm actually jealous hahaha

  • Yea i can go that long without washing mine too lol
    What is oily? Hahaha

    • i have thick, wavy/curly hair and it's more dry than other people's, so it's way more beneficial for me not to wash it that often! i've had people tell me how healthy and clean my hair looks all the time (when i'm actually at the 1.5 week mark) haha. guess what i'm doing works!

  • Mine is sort of all over the place after it's been washed... like it's not "falling naturally".
    The day AFTER I wash my hair, and they day after that - that's when my hair looks its best... when it has SOME of the oil back in to help it shine.
