Hair Care Tricks for Lazy Girls

1. Skip air-drying and use a diffuser.

Air-drying is great for achieving those amazing undone hairstyles, and for getting the most of your natural hair texture. What’s more it saves your hair from the brutal effects of heat, however, it may not save you on time and a head cold. Consider using a diffuser attachment when you blow-dry your hair. You have nothing to lose and you’ll still get that gorgeous natural-looking texture.

2. Use dry shampoo to refresh your hair.

Having to press pause on your Netflix binge to rinse out your conditioner or hair treatment, and then to blow-dry your hair can be such a pain. Skip a step over the weekend by refreshing your hair with the Dove Detox and Purify Dry Shampoo and call it a day.

3. Use bobby pins for styling update.

4. Use hair oils under your hat.

Beanie season is upon us. Everywhere you turn, the stylish set is wearing beanie hats in a array of colors, patterns, and textures. While hats are a great way to update your look in the nick of time, don’t forget about your hair underneath your cap. Work a hair oil through your hair, like the Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Styling Oil throughout your hair, This will add shine and a protective barrier from rough fabrics, like wool.

5. Use a conditioning mist to moisturize and refresh your texture.

Re-moisturzing your hair can feel like a bit of a chore on the weekend. A leave-in spray, like the Nexxus Lightweight Conditioning Mistmakes the process so seamless and quick you can do it in the back of an Uber on your way to brunch. This weekend, slip this bad boy into your gym bag (along with your dry shampoo) or purse as you refresh your texture on-the-go! Easy, peasy!
