Days Three and Four
Use a dry shampoo to keep your unwashed hair from getting oily. Shake well and spray evenly onto hair, and then run a brush through to remove excess product. If need be, use a blowdryer or flat iron to touch up your style.
Days Five and Six
Rub a small amount of Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine ($40) or argan oil onto the bristle tips of a small round brush (Sam Villa Small Boar Round Brush, $30) and rotate the brush along the hair surface to spread oil, smooth flyaways and impart softness and shine.
Time to shampoo.
