So… you had another hectic morning? Did not have the time to wash your hair? You are probably dreading the thought of running into someone today as your hair can be a ball of mess, or worse smell like a total mess. But don’t you worry – with the right hair styling products and techniques, you can get away with not having to wash your hair. We’ve put together simple tricks to make your slept-in hair end up with a salon-like finish.
Wait until after you have applied dry shampoo to your hair before you do. If not, the brushing process will distribute oil throughout the length of your hair, which makes it greasy and weighed down tremendously. This will make it more difficult to style your hair.
Braiding Saves the Day
Pick any braid – any style of braid for that matter! It will instantly transform your look from drab to fab!
Prep the Night Before
If you are planning not to wash your hair the next morning, you need to prep it the night before. Apply dry shampoo on your hair and work it into your hair. You can either braid it or twist hair into a bun. The next morning, you won’t have to worry about your hair feeling oily; plus, you can get nice volume, too.
When was the last time you’ve used velcro rollers on your hair? Now is the time to give it a try once again! Roll your hair first thing in the morning and leave it on your hair as you get ready, have your breakfast and change your clothes. Remove the rollers from your hair right before stepping out of the house.
Revive Your Curls
Perk up your curls with the right styling products like a curl enhancing spray. This will help to fight frizz formation but also make your curls look more vibrant.
Put in Some Powder
When talking about second-day, unwashed hair, dry shampoo isn’t the only product you can use. Volumising hair powders can also help you do a lot of tricks. Using this product will instantly soak up excess oil in your hair while also providing texture to give you more styling options.
Fight Dryness with Hair Oil
For this one, though, you need to apply it mostly to the ends only. This will fight off any dryness (where it typically happens near the ends) and refrain from making your hair feel too oily.
Distract people’s attention away from your hair by putting on a bold lip colour. You can go for a pink, red or orange – whatever works for your personal style. However, the point is to make your lips and makeup the focal point of your look, not your hair.
