Does Kim Kardashian *Really* Go 5 Days Without Shampoo? We Investigate.
Kim Kardashian West may have a makeup routine that costs more than we spend on our rent, but we’ve always known that, secretly, Kim was a norm like us. So when she revealed that she goes five days without washing her hair, our inner lazy girl hearts were beaming with pride. In a recent interview, she told Into the Gloss, “For my hair, I don’t wash it every day. 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 decided to do some investigative digging to see if Kim’s hairfession really holds up so we turned to her most-photographed moment of recent: Paris Fashion Week.

2. Day Two – Messier Vibe: Kanye isn’t the only one feeling Kim’s day two hair, aka Messy Blowout Vibe Day. We’re fans of anything that lets us skip the lather ‘n’ rinsing and hit the snooze button one more time. Day two seems to be starting out according to plan. (Photo via @kimkardashian)
3. Day Two Continued – Sleek + Slicked Back : Wait a sec… it seems like Kim K’s platinum blonde locks are putting a cramp in her hair routine. By our accounts, Kim is rockin’ her day three hair ahead of schedule. This is around the time that we thrown in… or on the towel and give in to shampoo, but Kim KW. is a stronger lady than we are… or is she? (Photo via Pascal Le Segretain/Getty)
4. Day Three – Shampoo + Blowout: Just like that, Kim breaks our lazygirl hearts and heads back to the salon on day three for a touchup and wash. While we can’t hate on her hair dedication, we’re sad to discover that Kim KW. isn’t a shampoo super human after all. (Photo via @kimkardashian)
Conclusion: While Kim’s normally got her hair game on lockdown, going five days without shampoo and trying out a dramatic new ‘do can be really tough. When she’s ready to go back to shampoo-less life, we’ve got the perfect DIY dry shampoo recipe for her, no matter what color her hair is. (Photo via @kimkardashian)
