Kim Kardashian has revealed her low-maintenance hair routine

"I only shampoo it twice a week to prevent it from drying out," the mother-of-two revealed in a post on her eponymous website. "I also love using hydrating at-home hair masks."

It's not the first time that the reality TV queen, who is married to rapper Kanye West, has given her fans sneak peeks at her haircare routine.

Last year Kim caused a social media frenzy when she took over the Kardashian Beauty Hair's Instagram account for a day, revealing her favourite past hairstyles and her tricks for recreating her iconic sleek looks.

"A sleek ponytail is one of my go-to looks at the moment," she wrote alongside photos of herself rocking the chic 'dos. "I usually wash my hair maybe every 3-5 days and on the third or fourth day I'll do a slicked-back ponytail. I get my hair super straight first with our ceramic iron."

Kim also had tips for those wanting to style their hair on the days inbetween shampooing. "Center part, subtle waves, slightly messy," she advised. "One of my favorite looks! This style I will do the day after I wash my hair and use our dry shampoo."

The style icon, who gave birth to baby boy Saint West in December, had been rocking plaited styles in recent weeks, and revealed during a live stream on her app that she was going to stick to the look to get her hair back in tip top condition.

When she decided to undo the braided style, she shared a sultry selfie on Instagram, reclining back with her hair back in its natural tousled waves. "Back to reality," she wrote in the caption to her 58.1 million followers.
