It’s time to wake up, but your snooze button gets the better of you. An hour has passed and now you’re officially late! Sound familiar? Whether you’re a chronic snoozer or being punctual is just a foreign characteristic to you, these inconvenient traits will forever rule your mornings, and believe it or not, your hair!
On manic mornings, don’t settle for basic ponytails and unruly bed hair. Instead, achieve effortlessly stylish hair in no time with these handy hair hacks.
Dry Shampoo is Your Best Friend
Dry shampoo is everything when it comes to busy mornings, especially when you’re due for a shampoo! Our tip is to use it the night before. Spray it along your roots and allow it to combat excess oil that is being produced overnight. This will minimise the likelihood of waking up with a greasy head!
Control Frizz with a Toothbrush & Hairspray
Sounds kind of strange, but it works a treat! If you suffer from fiercely frizzy hair, then simply spray an old (but clean!) toothbrush with hairspray and brush it over flyaway strands.
Braid Your Hair the Night Before
If you’re a fan of wavy or curly hair but do not have the time to commit to the curling iron in the morning, braid your hair the night before. This trick works particularly well on wet hair. Whether you do a French braid or multiple plaits (depending on your hair type), you’ll rise and shine to beautifully wavy locks. Finish this look off with a spritz of texturising or hair spray and scrunch your hair up to achieve beautiful bounciness.
Invest in a Good Brush
Specifically one that is boar bristle. The time honoured boar bristle brush will naturally condition your hair, improve your hair’s texture, reduce fizziness and save you money on purchasing unnecessary styling products.
Try a Twisty Bun
Sounds time consuming, right? Well it’s not! You can create a twisty bun in no more than five minutes! Divide your hair into two low pigtails and then braid each pigtail. Wrap your braids together and secure them with bobby pins and spritz of hairspray at the back of your head. If you need a little visual inspiration, check out this YouTube tutorial.
