Kim Kardashian Doesn't Wash Her Hair As Often As You Think... Could You?

Kim Kardashian Doesn't Wash Her Hair As Often As You Think... Could You?

Kim Kardashian's hair washing routine is slightly unconventional - could you leave it this long?

We all know that Kim Kardashian's beauty routine is well documented as one of the most high-maintenance in the biz. From a hair stylist and make-up artist on call every single day, to a committed contour routine, we dread to add up the hours it takes to get Kardashian-ready. But the one thing Kim doesn't spend a lot of time on? The answer might surprise you...

Ugh I hate falling sleep with all of my make up on!

Posting on her website and app, Kim K spilled that she only washes her hair "twice a week to prevent it from drying out. I also love using hydrating at-home hair masks". While we are a big fan of dry shampoo for a quick de-greasing fix every now and then (ahem, every other day...), we get antsy if we can't shampoo at least three times a week - some of us in the office can't handle any less than every day.

So how does Kim's 'do look so sleek? Well, like we said, it can't hurt to have a hairtsylist on hand every morning. But there's more to it than that; speaking to a US site in 2015, Kim took us through her hair schedule. 'We start out with a blowout on day one, then we go into a messier vibe the next day, and then we flat iron it and do a really sleek look on day three since that requires a little oil in the hair. Day four could be a slicked-back ponytail, and on the fifth day is when you wash it.'

We don't know about you, but we might just stick to our once-every-two-days routine. Thanks anyway, Kimmy...
