Reasons why you should own a shower cap.
Showering daily is necessary if your pitts smell like a moldy Italian hoagie. Washing your hair everyday is another story.
It causes you to use more electricity because you’ll have to blow dry and style your mane more often, and that adds up!
These hot tools aren’t so good for your hair. They may make your mop look good, but long term it dries, fries, and causes split ends.
That equals more hair cuts! Last time I checked, a good haircut could be pricey, not to mention the time it takes out of your schedule. In the grand scheme if you get you hair cut every two months verses every six weeks, you’ll be saving the cost of at least two haircuts a year. That savings could buy you a purse, or shoes, or lots of candy bars and magazines.
And what about shampoo, conditioner, and styling products? The more you wash your hair, the more of these products you use. Even if you buy your shampoo on sale at Costco or Walmart (like me – a big bottle of TRESemme is good to my hair, wallet, and lasts a while!), the less you use = the longer it lasts = money you save.
Hair color. The more you wash, the faster it fades. Plus dying can dry out your hair. If you over wash, it’ll just get worse. Dying your hair from a box can be a huge pain (especially the cleanup). Paying for a dye job at a salon adds up. Even if you get an extra week out of your color, you’ll save some money.
And the most MOST MOST important reason is because washing your hair daily is just bad for your hair’s health.
In the long run the less you do, the better condition your hair will be in. The more you do = the more you have to do to then counteract the damage = more products, more haircuts, more time consumed by your hair, and less time for you to wear all your cute trend-tastic outfits.
Get a shower cap, tell yourself you look retro glam, hop in the shower, hop out, and don’t stress about your hair!
If you want to splurge, this $18.00 cap from Ulta looks pretty nice.
As for mine, it came in a Burt’s Bees grab bag. It’s a $25.00 bag of random goodies they sell around the holidays. Highly recommended!!
