The basis for healthy hair? Limit the number of shampoos. We all know that washing too regularly attacks the hair fiber, sensitizes the scalp and increases the secretion of sebum. Nothing positive! What if your resolution for 2021 was to wash them only once a week? But how can you avoid the oily and cardboard hair effect during this transition? Don't panic, we'll tell you everything with these 5 tips for spacing out shampoos!
We have already told you and we will say it again: for sublimated hair, it is essential to pay attention to what is applied on it. And to succeed in spacing out your shampoos, it is even more important! Parabens, silicones and sulphates, in addition to being harmful, attack your hair fiber and your scalp. They only beautify your hair on the surface, and your hair becomes dependent on it: when they don't have their dose, they produce more sebum!
Therefore, the first of our tips for spacing shampoos is: change products. For shampoo, it's almost easy: solid, liquid, powder ... You are bound to find what you are looking for somewhere, there is something for everyone! The only requirement: pay attention to the composition. Banish anything with unpronounceable words, and follow influencers green which will guide you towards the best brands, such as Makeover or I am modest for example.
Of course, the ideal is to turn to DIY, and in particular to make your own solid shampoo. But this is for the very motivated ... I am modest explains that very well in his video !
To define the curls, nothing better than a little gel of flax or aloe vera. Ditto for replacing the gel on short hair! In general, look to replace your hair products with products with a healthy composition. Thus, little by little, your scalp will be less attacked and will secrete less sebum. Goodbye oily hair, you can space your shampoos more and more!
Space the shampoos… Using a dry shampoo!
When you start to limit the number of washes, regardless of the products you use, the hair tends to grease quickly between two washes… And no one likes that! No problem, the dry shampoo is there for you! Because we remind: oily hair does not mean dirty hair. Sebum is clean! This is the natural nutrition of the scalp (and the skin in general). No scruples, therefore, to cheat a little on the roots!
And to help you, we give you our best tip for spacing shampoos: the DIY dry shampoo, suitable for all hair colors!
- cocoa powder
- 6 drops of essential oil of your choice, for the smell and the benefits (optional)
- if you are blonde, use 3 teaspoons of cornstarch for 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder;
- for light red / brown hair, use 1 tablespoon of cornstarch for 1 tablespoon of cocoa;
- if you are brown / brown, use 1 tablespoon of cornstarch for 2 tablespoons of cocoa.
Mix everything, and it's ready! A dry shampoo that smells like cocoa! Corn starch effectively absorbs excess sebum, and cocoa contributes to a healthy scalp. Nothing better to gently space out shampoos and give your hair the softness it needs! So, your closets!
Treat between shampoos
Third of our tips for gently spacing out your shampoos: make suitable masks to help the scalp regulate its slightly upset sebum production! And that's good, because for that too we have solutions.
You will need:
- 6 tablespoons of powdered green clay
- 5 tablespoons of lemon water
- 4 drops of grapefruit essential oil (optional)
- Slightly heat the lemon water (it should not boil).
- Gradually add it to the clay, mixing until you get a smooth paste.
- Add the 4 drops of essential oil.
It's already ready! Apply from the roots to the ends, gently, without forgetting the scalp! Leave it on for at least 30 minutes, then rinse it off with clean water. Green clay contains sediment that absorbs excess sebum and retains toxins, allowing the scalp to breathe! Lemon regulates the secretion of sebum and cleanses your scalp. As a bonus, it also makes your hair shine and fights dandruff: our heads' best friend! Results: a healthy scalp and healthy hair!

Style your hair accordingly
The best way to space out your shampoos is to leave your hair loose so they can breathe freely.
But, despite our tips for spacing out shampoos, your hair is getting greasy between washes and you want to hide that? No problem: go for the hair tied up! Braid, ponytail, bun, the possibilities are endless. Only requirement: avoid over tightening. This may suffocate your scalp… which will secrete sebum to counter this aggression! Counterproductive, therefore. Also make sure to vary the hairstyles regularly, because it is not good to tie the hair in the same way for too long: the continuous pressure weakens the hair fiber.
Another solution: accessories. A hat for shopping, a pretty scarf for work… Again, let your imagination run wild!
Finally, you can go for one or two weeks of plated braids like protective hairstyle : they will avoid handling and give the hair time to rest. Very good alternative when trying to space out your shampoos. Be careful, however, you must continue to wash them, and especially not to keep this hairstyle too long, because again, it can suffocate your scalp or even weaken your hair fiber. We therefore avoid excess!
Finally, spacing out your shampoos is above all showing patience. Rome was not built in a day! Give your scalp time to regulate itself. Accept that your hair is not we fleek every day of the week (we know, it's hard). Schedule fixed wash days for yourself so you don't give in to temptation (Sunday and Wednesday to start with, for example). Avoid touching them, you will only re-grease them faster.
In short: be tolerant of your hair, which itself has tolerated you washing it 4 times a week for 10 years!
