Dear Ouidad: How does one maintain her look for the next day without having to wash her hair again? Is it better to wash the hair every day?

A: When you sleep, put the hair in loose ponytail on the top of the head to preserve curls as best as possible for the morning. In the morning, use Botanical Boost to refresh your curls. After your hair is dry, you can use a drop of Shine Glaze and your hair will look beautiful for the day. In terms of washing your hair, generally it isn't necessary to shampoo daily. Your curl pattern should dictate how often you should shampoo.

  • Loose waves - 2-3 times per week
  • Curly/Tight - 1-2 times per week
  • Kinky - 1 time per week
