The wonderful Klorane lady (aka Celebrity hairstylist Caroline Bufalini) told me that she hadn't washed her hair for 7 days and only used Klorane dry shampoo. 7 DAYS! Caroline's hair looked and felt clean but I was still very skeptical. So I OBVIOUSLY HAD TO TEST HER CLAIM.... All the photos are with my 7 day hair.
Klorane Dry Shampoo* is supposed to clean hair without leaving a residue, volumize and give hair texture with each use. I properly washed my hair Sunday morning and applied Klorane on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.
Days 1-3 were okay. My hair seemed clean and it didn't look bad. It had some volume but my co-worker commented that it looked a little messy near day 3.
On Day 4, I felt there was a smell emanating from my head but my colleague didn't smell anything. My hair looked clean but it started to not feel that clean.
Day 5 and 6 were especially tough since I was nearing the end BUT I ENDURED! I felt like there was a lot of build up in my hair and when I scratched it...there would be flecks under my nails (gross I know...) My hair was also SET into place LOL. No matter how I moved it, it didn't really move back.
Thought the week, I went to the gym 3 times which probably contributed more sweat and grease than if I hadn't gone to the gym. By the end of 7 days, I REALLY (really really) wanted to wash my hair.
I went out with Jen and Vanessa on Saturday (Day 7) and asked their opinions. Jen willingly (sort of) gave an inspection.
After 7 days of not washing my hair, I felt like the world could smell me coming but Jen didn't notice any odours (so brave...look how she went right in there LOL).
She also couldn't tell that my hair hadn't been washed properly for a week. Vanessa noticed that my hair look kinda flat but she wouldn't have guessed it was 7 day hair, maybe 3. I personally thought it looked a bit shiny.
By Day 5 and 6, I was literally daydreaming about what shampoo I would use when I could wash my hair (I ended up using Lush's Lullaby). Frankly I will never leave my hair unwashed for 7 days AGAIN but if I did, I wouldn't mind use Klorane to clean it. For all intents and purposes, no one could tell and no one really thought my hair looked that bad at all.
Reasons to go 7 days without properly washing your hair
- overzealous concern for the environment
- zombie apocalypse
How long have you gone without washing your hair?
