Time Saving Hair Hacks for Mums + Anyone Else Who’s Really Busy!
Most mums already know about this trick! Dry shampoo can be a huge help when you just don’t have time to wash your hair. Did you know that you can apply it before bed to let it absorb the oils overnight for an even fresher look? This trick also means less dry shampoo residue! Batiste is my go to brand.
This is a product that is new to me but it’s pretty much dry shampoo’s best friend. It’s a weightless aerosol hydrating formula that is conditioning and the perfect addition to your dry shampoo to make your hair look healthy and hydrated. Buy yours from Boots.
- Wash at Night, Style in the Morning
I rarely have time to wash my hair in the morning though I prefer my hair when it has had the change to air dry in the day. That is for the weekends only now that I have kids! I wash my hair at night and use my Jade Hair Straightening Ceramic-Tourmaline Brush from Irresistible Me to sort out the frizz and make my hair look smooth in the morning. You can use it to style your hair straight or to just smoothen it for soft waves if your hair is naturally curly like mine. Read my full review here.
If you’ve styled your hair, make the do last another day by putting your hair in a loose bun when you go to bed. This will make sure your hair doesn’t get messy and tangled and your style and volume should last another day.
I nearly always use a hair mask or conditioning treatment instead of regular conditioner. You don’t have to leave them on for 5-10 minutes — I just use them like a conditioner and rinse my hair after a minute or so and my hair feels so much better than when using regular conditioner. This one is amazing!
Use a hair oil or hair serum after you’ve washed your hair to hydrate your locks and make your hair look much healthier. It only takes a second to run your fingers through your hair with a few drops of oil but it makes such a difference. I love the Elvive Extraordinary Hair Oil from L’oreal Paris.
If you’ve washed your hair at night and know you will not have time to style it in the morning, you can always braid it to create loose curls/waves for the next day. Just take your braids out in the morning and run your fingers through them. Add some serum to smoothen your locks and you’re done.
Some days, you don’t have time for anything so just rock that mum bun or messy pony tail or crazy curls. If you’re confident, you’ll look great! I find that the less time and effort you put into your pony tails and buns, the better they look. Just put your hair up quickly and leave it. It’s meant to look like that.
