3 Reasons to Embrace Next-Day Hair This Winter

Next-day hair has gone from taboo to on-trend!

Sick of having to style your hair every day? Consider embracing the next-day hair look! Unwashed hair has gone from being taboo to being incredibly on-trend. If you're on the fence about skipping the shampoo, you can be rest assured that your hair will not be left looking flat and oily. Below we share three reasons why next-day hair is in this season.


One of the best reasons to rock a next-day style is its practicality! Seriously, who has the time to wash, dry, and style on a daily basis? Thanks to products like dry shampoo and texturizing spray, next-day hair has the potential to look even better than freshly-styled strands. For years, unwashed hair was something you would conceal in a tight, slicked-back ponytail or hide away under a hat. But now, next-day hair is a style in itself, proudly showing up on the runways of the industries most fashionable designers.

Healthier-Looking Hair

Even if you do have the time to wash, dry, and style on the regular, it may not be the healthiest decision for your hair. Over-washing can strip your hair of its natural oils-the ones it needs to stay hydrated and shiny. It can also cause quite a bit of frizz, only taming itself once the natural oils have returned to your scalp. So, give your strands a break and leave your hair unwashed for a day or two. If you need a quick refresh, consider a spritz of dry shampoo to soak up any excess oil in between washes or pull your hair back into a gorgeous braided style!


Did you know that most styles-from braids to curls-hold better in next-day hair? It's true! The natural texture that results from light buildup of oil or product helps to give the hair the grip it needs to stay in place. What's more, by adding a little dry shampoo to your next-day hair you can give your ballerina buns and ponytails a little extra oomph.

Not into the idea of rocking dirty strands? You can give clean, freshly washed hair the tousled next-day look by using L'Oréal Professionnel's Next Day Hair. Spray this dry finishing spray is over your hair-focusing at the root-and then tousle with your fingers.
