“How often hair should be washed?” is a question debated by most women. Washing hair every day is not only extremely time consuming, but also damaging to your strands. It strips away the natural oils from the scalp that help in keeping your lovely locks nourished.

Then how do people with really oily and greasy scalps deal with second day hair? Don’t worry, we have come up with a comprehensive guide on how to make your hair look fresh on the 2nd (or even 3rd and 4th day) with some simple tricks...

If you have an oily scalp, you need to keep dry shampoo handy at all times. Dry shampoo absorbs oil and gives the illusion of freshly washed hair. With excess oil gone, your hair will look good in an instant.

If you don’t have a dry shampoo, the best way to go is by tying it up in a cute hairstyle. Whether you’re into buns or ponytails, when your hair is put up it is harder to tell that you haven’t washed it in a day or two.
