How To Make Your Husband Think You're Not A Slob

Blazer: Apricot Lane      blouse: Apricot Lane       pants: H&M        shoes: thrifted

I've done it. I've given into the love of grease and am only washing my hair twice a week. And HELLO why have I not done this before?? I'm the laziest and cheapest person on the planet and I hate getting ready in the morning so it's a win win for both my water bill and my lazy A. But there's just one person that I kind of need to convince that not washing my hair doesn't make me disgusting. 

Sir Matt.

So these are my latest attempts. No success so far, as far as he's concerned I'm a very cute....but very greasy bum.

Attempt 1: But Matt I STILL take showers, I just don't wash my hair when I take them. Matt, " When was the last time you took a shower?" Me: "Ummmmm.....two days ago...." Sir Matt:"ummmm hmmmmmm."

Attempt 2: It will make my hair shinier and healthier!!! Matt "Do you know what makes you look really healthy? Clean hair."

Attempt 3: Now you don't have to give me head massages because I won't want you to have to touch my greasy hair! Sir Matt "In what world would you ever not want a head massage." Me: "You got me there."

Attempt 4: But I use dry shampoo which is pretty much the same thing as washing my hair! Sir Matt "No, you use dry shampoo that makes it look like you have a head full of gray hairs and flour all over it."

Attempt 5: But Indie doesn't wash her hair every day so why should I!?  Sir Matt: "Indie also smells peoples butts for fun. Do you really want to jump on that train?"

Guys I'm running out of ideas.....and dry shampoo. HELP. ME.

  1. Dry Shampoo is the best. Try having him blowdry your hair every morning. That might convince him...

  2. Sir Matt is pretty quick on his feet. And strangely similar to my hubby as well... haha.

  3. Haha! :) I, too, cut down my hair washing years ago. It is tricky and there's certainly a fine line between just right and too much dry shampoo.

    Once when I showed up to work (I used to work at Olive Garden) my boss asked me if I had recently dyed my hair. I didn't have the guts to tell him, or those around me, that I didn't color my hair. But in fact it was my clever attempt to mask my day 3 greasy hair with baby powder. Fine line, I'm telling you. Fine line.

  4. Matt needs to get with the picture! I just figured that out this past summer, that washing my hair twice a week is kind of the way to go. And yes, baby powder will go a long way those last cpl days before you wash again. keep at it girl! Your hair will look so much healthier!!

  5. Catherine: YOU ARE A GENIUS!! I sense attempt 6 coming tomorrow morning!

    Chalayn: I totally feel you, someone told me corn starch and cocoa powder is good for brunettes, it sounds a little weird to me but I'll try it and report back!!

  6. Just say if you keep washing it everyday it's all going to be gone in ten years... So he can have clean hair now and then no hair, or healthy somewhat greasy hair that will last forever :)

  11. This post gave me such a good laugh! I do agree with your last statement. If my pup doesn't wash her hair everyday and I don't love her any less...I'm sure I can be loved greasy hair and all haha!

  12. I don't dry shampoo, but I do use this no-poo method (http://pinterest.com/pin/15481192441136880/) and it's been working great so far! I only wash my hair 3 times a week or so. Since I have curly hair I typically do have to wet it so that I can style it; you probably wouldn't have to do that though! I even got my husband to try it! He's got super oily skin and his hair would be super greasy if he didn't wash it every single day with regular shampoo. He's gone 2 days without washing it no-poo style (just rinsing in the shower) and his hair still looks fresh and clean!!! In the comments section of the blog post the writer says that she still uses product like hairspray, mousse, etc. Anyway, it's totally worth trying!

  14. I'm loving the responses from the hubby. So quick that one!

  15. I tried it for a bit. It eventually started getting less greasy over time, but still irritated my face and such. But anyways, I didn't tell the boyfriend and he didn't really notice! My girlfriends did though. . . Haha!

  16. Shampooing very other day for me is the perfect balance.

  17. Oh my gosh to cute! I feel like my man would have the same reaction! Love the look and the photos.

  18. We might be hair twins! I just started only washing my hair twice a week too! (While using cornstarch as a dry shampoo in the mean time). Good luck with convincing the hubby - I am struggling with that too!
    PS I love your cute blog.

  19. Too funny! I only wash my hair two-three days a week as well. We have really hard water so if I wash it too much my scalp gets super dry and flaky, not cute. I'm still trying to find the right balance because if I go too long then it does get greasy. The things we girls do for beauty (and saving time!)

  20. Love those pants!

  21. I have to wash my hair every day otherwise my hair looks like (as my mother would say in a southern accent) "A nasty ol' grease pit."

  22. I'm sorry to say that I can be of no help to you. I've tried pretty much all of these lines on MY husband, and he's not having it either. Almost all of my girl friends get it, but he just thinks I'm nasty haha.

    P.S. Love those pants :)

  23. Hahaha love this post. I'm struggling with the will power to make myself cold and wet in the mornings lately also! Winter sucks!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Bahahahaha. That is fantastic. You guys are hilarious. I use Tresemme dry shampoo; they have one for curly/wavy hair that is like a foam so you don't have the gray hair problem!

    Also, you look adorable! Those pants are amazing!

  25. I only wash my hair a few times a week, too. My hair just behaves so much better - I have naturally thick, curly hair.

    Good luck convincing him it's alright. Still trying to convice my family it's not out of laziness. :P

    I love your pants! So much more unique than all the polka dots I've been seeing lately.

  27. I made the change to washing my hair 2-3 times a week probably a year ago or so, and I love it. I don't burn through shampoo nearly as quickly, and the hair grease will become more tolerable!

  28. My bleached hair was breaking off and would not grow past my shoulders until I quit washing it with shampoo. I have been using Wen for over a year and a half, my hair has grown 3" and is a lot healthier, not like a dry haystack. I wash once a week and am never greasy or stinky because I use suave dry shampoo..it smells amazing. The trick to not looking like flour head is parting hair and spraying only the scalp area (6" away) and rubbing gently.. I do this every inch or so on the greasy looking spots and then brush it out. It works.. promise!

  29. Haha, this is my life exactly!! I HATE washing my hair and have once gone a WHOLE WEEK without washing it. Needless to say, my husband is always going to think I'm just disgusting. It's only natural. ;)

  30. Haha. I think it just takes time. I went through the same thing.

  31. ok so i am totally not one of those girls that is all like "hey that's so funny, now check out my blog" when writing comments but..... i just found your blog today and seriously just wrote a post about this very thing. i did a review of over 20 different dry shampoo's that might help with the "flour in your hair" part. and some explaining as to why i (or other women) use dry shampoo. maybe it will help.
