SACRAMENTO - With the drought only getting worse in California, Gov. asked Californians to reduce usage by 20 percent.
One Sacramento hair salon has pitched in by encouraging infrequent hair washing.
Studies show you can use two and a half to four gallons of water per minute when you shower. Hair stylists said keeping showers short, or maybe even eliminating a couple a week, can result in some nice water conservation.
My Blow Dry Studio offers a wash and style that stylists said can last up to a week. The owner of the east Sacramento salon, Sandra Bailey, said that in turn, clients can go days between washing.
Bailey said she's passionate about conserving water and helping others do the same.
"You can have a style and not waste all that water," she said. "We're doing our part as far as water conservation goes. Every little bit helps."
