You spend so much time on your hair in the morning, only to have to wake up and do it all over again the next day. The routine of washing and styling your hair can be so grueling. It’s enough to make you want to throw in the towel!
Don’t let the fact that you’re not a morning person be the reason why you go through life with bedhead. You really can get more than one day out of your hairstyle, as long as you follow these easy tips.
Go Easy on Products the First Day
When you think about going more than one day between washes, you probably think the more product you use, the better. That’s not necessarily the case.
In general, the more product you use, the more your hair will be weighed down, and the worse it will look on day two and three. Instead, look for a high-quality hair wax or other product. High-quality brands don’t require you to use a lot of product, which means you can get more mileage out of your style.
As the days progress, you can use more product to help you hold your style.
Your Blow Dryer Isn’t Only Useful After Stepping out of the Shower
Your blow dryer is likely a staple in your morning routine. There’s no question that it can dry your hair quickly and provide you with more manageable hair directly out of the shower, but hair dryers can do more than just dry wet hair.
If your hair looks a little flat and dull, blast some heat from the blow dryer on your roots. It will dry out some of the oil and give you a bit more lift.
Make Dry Shampoo Your New Best Friend
When it comes to busting grease, nothing works better than dry shampoo. Not only is it effective, it is extremely easy to use:
- Apply the product to dry hair, never to wet or damp hair
- Focus on applying the product on the roots
- Let it sit for two minutes to soak up the oil
- Use a brush or blow dryer to distribute it evenly in your hair
The Less You Wash, the Less Often You’ll Have to Wash
Dealing with grease can feel like an uphill battle, but the more you skip washing your hair, the less you’ll have to wash it.
That’s because shampoo can dry out the scalp, which encourages it to produce more oil more quickly. If you go easy on the wash routine, your scalp can regain its balance, and you’ll end up with a lot less grease.
Styling your hair can be a pain, but you’ll find it’s not nearly as much of a challenge if you don’t have to worry about washing and styling it every single day. Follow these tips and not only will your hair look freshly styled days after a wash, your scalp will be happier and healthier too.
