For some of us, styling our hair in the morning can be that task that takes entirely too long. Maybe it’s that you have so much hair that it takes forever to style. Or, maybe your hair never does what you want it to do. Perhaps elaborate hairstyles have just never been your forte. Whatever the case may be, no one ever said no to a good beauty hack.
Here are five morning hair hacks to save time on your hair in the morning.
Dry Shampoo is Your Best Friend
It’s recommended by stylists that you don’t wash your hair every day. This is where dry shampoo comes in. The perfect way to make your hair feel and look clean between washes is by using dry shampoo. Dry shampoo is a miracle product that saves time and adds style. It also eliminates grease and odor, giving your hair that just-washed look and smell. It is also recommended that you apply dry shampoo the night before for increased volume in the morning.
Try a New, Simple Style
Sure, maybe curling or straightening your hair takes forever. But perhaps you just haven’t discovered and mastered another, quick way to style hair yet?. Updos such as braids, ponytails, and buns can be huge time-savers and look good if executed correctly.
Quick 5-minute hair hack: Shower at night and braid your hair while wet into even sections all around your head. Wake up in the morning to beachy waves!
Sleep With a Hair Mask
Your hair needs nourishment, and the best time to get that nourishment is at night while you’re sleeping. It gives your hair time to absorb all the nutrients and nourish the scalp. You can use a store-bought mask or a homemade one; either way, you’re sure to wake up with gorgeous, shiny locks.
Only Curl Where Necessary
If you have naturally wavy/curly hair that looks kind of crazy in the morning, add a few curls to achieve a messy, distressed look. Fix the pieces around your face (that’s what people see the most anyways) as well as any other crazy pieces. The result will be more of a messy, distressed curly look. But hey, if you have natural curls or waves, you might as well flaunt them. By only fixing the crazy pieces of hair and the pieces around your face, you’re saving time because you don’t have to curl all of your hair.
Apply Volumizing Spray Before Bed
If you wake up with flat and limp hair every morning that makes your mane look thinner, there’s a simple solution. Apply a little volumizing spray before bedtime and tie into a high ponytail. Once hair is in a ponytail, make a loose bun and secure it with a few loose bobby pins. In the morning, you’ll have bouncy, frizz-free locks.
