Care: How often should you shampoo?

The frequency of hair washing has a big impact on how healthy your hair is - every hair wash means stress for your hair and accumulated wrong washes can lead to brittle and dry hair that will easily break. Now here you should try to find a comfort zone - washing less and less is the best for your hair, but you also need to feel comfortable and confident with your hair. 
Feeling like a little grease ball will not help here. Trust me all done before :D The fell into a frying pan look is not a confidence booster.
How long you can go in-between washes depends on your hair and skin type as well. My skin and hair are extremely dry so if I want I can wash my hair every 10 days. If you have fine hair it will appear greasy quicker. Curly hair is very forgiving and can go long in-between washes. BTW some people actually never wash their hair. It is called No-Wash Method. 

How to start

  • First you need to figure out how often you are washing your hair. Every day? Try every second day! If you can't do that during the week try ti give your hair a rest at the weekend. Writing down when you wash can help you keep track of your progress. 
  • Try to plan important events accordingly. My hair looks absolutely horrible directly after washing it, it looks best on it's second day so I always try to wash a day before an important event. 
  • Are you washing your hair the right way? Are you rubbing your scalp? That's just asking for oil! Dilute you shampoo. Use a water can or an empty bottle and just a few drops of shampoo. You will be amazed by the amount of soap! Let the water run over your scalp and let it gently sit for 2 minutes. Harsh shampoo can strip your hair from it's natural oils completely and activate the oil production as a counter reaction.
  • Wear your hair in a pretty and hair friendly up-do when you are in between washes. Try not to pull all your hair back very tightly though - this will just show not so fresh hair. A loose side part is a better idea.
  • Use baby powder on a big make up brush and gently tap you temples , brush out directly. All oil gone :) If you are dark haired like me use cacao powder or translucent power to avoid a greyish tinge.
  • Use a cup of destilled water and 6 drops of pure lavender oil , mix in a spray bottle and refresh your volume and add a clean fragrance in between.
I hope my little ticks can help you :) As always growing hair super long is more a thing about not doing things! than anything else. I am washing my hair every 5 days, simply because I like to wash it and even if it does not get oily a fresh smell is very important for me.

How often do you shampoo? Do you wish to shampoo less or do you think washing has nothing to do with healthy hair?

Love, Zoey.


Gold and Glitter - Christmas Hair Do's

*german version below*
Ficcare in large, primavera glittery & diamond aurora borrealis

The Holdiday season started and it is time to get dressed up and spend quality time with your family! If you need inspiration for your hair do - stay tuned for some ideas :)
Since our topic is gold and glitter, it is time to show you two new Ficcare Clips that fit the topic perfectly.They are both size large, the upper is a primavera glittery in gold and the lower is a diamond gold with aurora borealis. They are very very sparkly and I would only wear them on a special occassion like a dinner or night out .
The aurora borrealis stones are multi-dimensional and have quite a rainbow effect, I tried to capture some in a close up! It was not easy but I think you can guess how they look like.


  • Be bold! Go for sparkle gold and glitter! If your outfit is simple or classic, spice up your hair with nice glittery hair accessories or flowers. I always like a deep burgundy red, emerald green and gold for colours. If you are a cooler type try silver jewellery with clear stones.
  • If you are wearing a fancy dress try to wear your hair a little more elegant like a low sock bun, or in a french twist/logroll if your hair is too long.
  • Bring out the pearls! They are an absolute classic and a must have for every women. Classic family gatherings are a nice opportunity to wear simple and elegant pearl studs. Use some pearls you put on bobby pins as shown in this amazing tutorial and pin them around your bun.
  • Or follow my tutorial below and wear a low cinnamon with accent braids :) 

Aurora Borrealis Diamond Ficcare
Primavera Gold Glittery


  • Part your hair on both sides behind the ear, tie the rest into a low ponytail
  • Twist your bun into a round shape and secure with a ficcare clip or bobby pins
  • braid both sides, either normal english braids or lace braids
  • cross the accent braids top of your bun,
  • then bring them under the bun and secure them with bobby pins
  • Voila - enjoy!

Die Feiertage stehen kurz vor der Tür und endlich ist es Zeit sich für Familienfeiern hübsch zu machen und Zeit mit den Menschen zu verbringen die einem etwas bedeuten. Also bleibt dabei wenn ich euch ein paar Vorschläge mache was man denn so mit der Langhaarmaehne fabrizieren kann ohne das sie ein Weihnachtliches Teelicht gerät und man dabei die Tischdecke abfackelt  :). 
Unser Flechtwerk Post hatte das Thema Gold und Glitter - Zeit um euch zwei neue Ficcaren vorzustellen! Beide sind Größe L, einmal eine goldene Primavera glittery und eine goldene Aurora Borrealis Diamond. Sie sind ziemlich auffällig und glitzern ganz schön wild, deswegen würde ich sie nur abends tragen oder bei einem Abendessen. Die Aura Borrealis hat so einen schönen Glitzereffekt!  Ich habe versucht die Steine auf einem der oberen Bilder einzufangen - es sind richtige Regenbogen Steine.

Festtags Inspiration

  • Es ist Zeit wirklich einmal im Jahr wahnsinnig zu glitzern :) Wenn dein Outfit eher schlicht ist - umso besser dann können Haare und Haarschmuck richtig auffallen. Haarschmuck mit Steinen oder auch Blumen im Haar finde ich dann immer sehr schön. Farblich mag ich tiefes dunkelrot, waldgrün und gold. Bist du ein eher kühlerer Farbton dann versuche doch Silberschmuck mit klaren Steinen.
  • Taegst du ein eher auffälliges Kleid dann ist es immer schön die Haare schlicht zu tragen, ich mag einen tiefen Sockendutt sehr gern oder eine Banane/Logroll wenn die Haare nicht mehr in eine Banane passen weil sie zu lang sind. 
  • Zeit für Perlen! Die sind immer ein absoluter Klassiker und gehören irgendwie in jeden Schrank egal ob man 14 or 94 ist finde ich. Passend zu Perlenohrringen kann man auch Bobbypins mit Perlen benutzen. Schaut euch mal dieses tolle Tutorial an : klick
  • Oder folgt meinem Vorschlag oben und tragt einen tiefen Cinnamon mit Akzentzöpfen :)
