Lazy girl hair hacks to try now!
If you're any thing like us, you absolutely love your hair but just the thought of doing elaborate things with it tires you out. If you'd rather sleep an extra ten minutes instead of trying to style it into that fancy hair braid you saw on Pinterest last week then this is the blog for you!
Lazy girls unite to share these easy hair styling hacks to make you look fabulous with minimal effort.
Here's to those 10 extra minutes in bed with your comfy pillows and blanket:
SAVE TIME BY DRYING YOUR HAIR WITH A TEE SHIRT
An old, worn-in, super soft t-shirt will dry your hair faster than a towel and also result in less breakage and frizz. Remember to pat dry, not rub.
CURL YOUR HAIR IN A PONYTAIL
Curl your hair in five minutes flat by tying it up in a ponytail then dividing it into sections and curling the ends with a curling iron. Saves you time and makes you look like you've just stepped out of the salon!
BUN IT UP WITH A THICK SCRUNCHIE
Summers are almost here and there is nothing more annoying that your hair sticking to your neck in the heat. Keep your look fresh by this easy to do top bun. We love how you can dress this hairstyle for a formal day look as well as a informal night out. Plus it looks super cute with maxi dresses!
DRY SHAMPOO IS YOUR BFF
For all those days when you've overslept and woken up to find you have absolutely no time to shower.
Make this DIY dry shampoo in advance and keep in a jar in your bathroom cabinet - super easy to fool anyone into thinking you're a high maintenance kind of girl.
- Mix 1/2 cup corn starch to 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder and 2 tbsp cinnamon.
- Add 3-4 drops of essential oil (easily available at your nearby general store, our favourite is lavender) to the mix.
- Keep in an airtight container on your dresser.
- To apply all you have to do is grab a clean make up powder brush and dust the mix on your roots.
- Let it settle in for 2-3 minutes and then brush your hair to blend it all in.
MAKE HEAD SCARVES YOUR BEST ALLY
Head scarves keep your hair safe from all the dust and pollution which means no shampooing needed for longer. Plus they look super cute when styled the right way.
Stock up on these pretty little things to own that cute, fun look.
So there you go girls - we just gave you an 10 extra minutes on that snooze button!
