Why Jessa Duggar Doesn't Wash Her Hair Every Day

Counting On star Jessa Duggar is, much like her famous sisters — Jana, Jill, Jinger, and Joy-Anna — known for having lusciously long, naturally curly locks. Her three adorable children with husband Ben Seewald, Spurgeon, Henry, and Ivy, clearly take after their mother ... particularly judging by an adorable before-and-after Instagram post featuring little Spurgeon. The proud mom noted that she had to find the right haircut to honor her young son's natural twists, emphasizing how she could never chop it all off. She reasoned, "I love this cut because it cleans up the neckline and gets the hair up off his ears, but still highlights those lovely curls."

Aside from being a part of one of the most famous and controversial families in the world, Jessa focuses her time on being a dedicated wife and mother. As a result, the former 19 Kids and Counting star favors a laid-back look when it comes to her own clothes, hair, and makeup. She typically appears both on social media and in public looking natural, regardless of the occasion — so unsurprisingly, Jessa Duggar's haircare routine is just as lacking in fuss.

Jessa Duggar has a no-frills attitude to hair care

In a video tutorial posted on YouTube in December 2019, Jessa Duggar shared her typical morning routine, revealing that it takes her just 15 minutes to get ready each day. She noted right off the bat that her hair is "naturally curly," and therefore has "quite a bit of body to it." As a result, Jessa's locks, although stunning, are prone to getting super "frizzy" and "tangled." Limiting, then, how often she washes and brushes her hair, the Counting On star admitted that she doesn't ever brush when it's dry, because doing so just makes it huge and angry. If there's a knot, she'll simply address it individually. 

"I do not wash my hair every day. [It] feels like that really dries out my hair," Jessa went on to reveal, adding, "I only wash my hair every other day or every two days." The mother-of-three admitted to messing with her hair a lot as a teenager, including loading it up with products like mousse, but she'll still sometimes curl or straighten her tresses. "I don't do it as much as I used to," she said, before quipping, "I feel like I used to have more time — imagine that!"

More often than not, the busy TV personality tends to just let her hair do its own thing these days. She typically washes it at night and lets it air dry while she sleeps — and that seems to do the trick.
