"Since quarantine [started] I've just [been] rinsing my hair with water, especially since I haven't been seeing anyone," Kourtney shared. "I dry it after with an Aquisse hair towel turban, I usually do a face mask, then I just put it up in a bun with a silk scrunchie which helps with not tearing or damaging your hair, [but it's solely] slicked with my natural hair grease."
With natural oils still standing strong, though, it's important to limit strand to skin contact when sleeping, especially if you alternate between sleeping on your back and your front (in other words, if your pillow could be transferring oil from your mane onto your face). "You have to be careful not to get it on your pillow because you don’t want to break out, so I will also sleep with the hair turban on to help protect my hair [and my skin]," she explained.

"[Then when I want to use products], but I'm running low on time or just don’t feel like washing my entire head of hair, I only wash the front, face-fringe part with shampoo [but] no conditioner. We're constantly running our hands through our hair, [so] this works wonders to keep the front of my hair oil-free without stripping the oils on the rest of my hair by over-washing," said Kourtney.
She's noticed it working too: "[although I do have fairly] healthy hair, because I don't colour it, I feel like my hair is thicker because I haven't been washing it everyday," she noted.
As for Khloé's hair routine, she kicks off the week with clean tresses, and eases into oil-disguising dos from there. "Normally at the beginning of the week i would wash and blow-dry my hair, and then I'm a dry shampoo person, [but by] Wednesday or Thursday I'll start doing either a low bun or a low pony, and just work with it," she shared.
When she does hit washing day, however, Khloé makes sure to make it worth her while by indulging in an at-home hair mask. "You can use really any oil that you have in your pantry cabinet," she explained, listing olive, coconut and avocado oils as a few of her favourites. "Heat up the oil for about ten seconds or so, until it's warm but not hot, then apply the warm oil to your hair and put on a towel wrap [or shower cap] and let it sit for 20-30 minutes. Wash your hair as usual, maybe [adding] an extra [round of] shampoo to get the oils out. It'll infuse moisture and shine back into over-processed hair."
Shops fresh out of dry shampoo last time you checked? Kourtney suggests an alternative you're bound to already own. "If you're all out of dry shampoo, baby powder will do the trick," she shared. "Let it sit for a few minutes to absorb the excess oils, then rub it around to get rid of the white chalkiness."
And seeing as scent can be a dead giveaway of several day old hair, Kourtney also has a clever trick for freshening up sans shampoo of the dry or in-shower varieties. "Rub a dryer sheet through your strands," she advised. "Seriously. It eliminates static and also adds a pleasant scent to day-old hair." Genius. While classic store-bought dryer sheets should do the trick, it also happens that OUAI, the brainchild brand of Kardashian hair stylist (and close friend) Jen Atkin also offers strand-specific sheets if you prefer a product designed specially for hair health.
