Who Has Time For Great Hair?
Great hair days can turn to bad hair days fast when you are trying to get yourself dolled up in the morning before you leave for work. It can be a "time waster" for most working women. Sure, we all want to look great everyday but sometimes it just isn't possible, especially with all the work it takes to do this. We have a poverty of time and other things just seem to be more important.
The kids need to get to school, the dog needs to be fed, and someone's got to take out the trash before the truck comes. It's all a blur of responsibility and madness before 8 o' clock. This time is so precious that bad hair days pale in comparison to getting other things done.
And yet the feeling persists. Some of you may have annoying crowns or wild sleeping patterns that leave you looking a bit like a bag lady in the mornings. This causes us to faff with our hair and it can get greasy or worse, lie flat. So I've made it my mission to find out how to quickly and effectively get my hair back on track in little to no time. Here are some great ideas.
Greasy Dry Hair
Do you have greasy or dirty looking hair? Some women have combination hair with oily roots and dry tips. Try taking some Johnson's baby powder and shaking it onto the head. Start at the roots and brush it through with your fingers. This works best for blondes as it is totally unnoticeable.
Get rid of any extra powder that leaves white blotches on the head and no one will be any the wiser. Just be sure not to do this for more than two days in a row. Washing is still important and the powder can start to make your hair thick and pasty. If your hair is dry and dirty, it's best to put it up.
You can achieve some very romantic styles with dry hair. Try tying it up and releasing some of the strands in order to give it a bohemian feel.
This way people will find it charming as opposed to dirty. As soon as you get home, put in a palm full of conditioner and allow it to nourish the hair before washing.
The Dreaded Crown
If you struggle with a crown (or two), you can use a flat iron to help make it less noticeable. Brush the hair out and flat iron down, paying particular attention to the hair at the base of the crown area but be careful not to burn your scalp. Otherwise, you can also use a blow-dryer. Blow wave your hair upwards and then curl it in at the ends of the strands.
If your hair looks frizzy, Kair make some wonderful sprays that are quickly applied and work wonders. These tricks for great hair days will only take a few minutes out of your morning or afternoon and will have a great impact in terms of making your hair look fabulous. So ultimately, there is no excuse for you to have a bad hair day ever again.
