You had been looking forward to your wash day all week, hoping to relax and pamper yourself and your hair, because they truly need it. But out of the blue an errand came up, and now you can't help but push your wash day back to a more suitable date. So how do you wear your hair today? This is one of the most dreaded situations women with natural hair have to face: when their wash day plans get ruined and they stand stranded in front of the mirror, figuring out how to style their hair. With some simple tricks and tools, you can get a perfect hairstyle even when your hair is in dire need of a wash. Read on to know more:
Just woke up? Turn that pretty bed head into a loose bun. Take a dash of hair styling gel and sweep back your hair, tie a low-lying, loose bun and pull out a few strands of hair to frame your face. Ta-Da! You could not have asked for a simpler up-do than this on a busy day.
Braids are a great way to hide texture and grease from hair which haven’t been washed in a long time. They are also awesome at keeping away loose hair from your face, and make a chic quick hairstyle perfect for a busy day. You can also add some accessories to make it even cuter.
Space buns-with a twist
If you have beautiful curls and couldn’t find the time for a proper wash day, do not use dry shampoo as they can further dry out your curls. Instead, part your hair in the middle, gather them in buns on both sides, right at the top of the head, and leave out the rest of the hair to frame your face. The half space buns are a different yet stylish updo which can elevate any look.
Good old ponytail:
A sleek ponytail can be the ultimate glamorous hairstyle you can carry on not-so-freshly shampooed hair. The oil that previously made your hair look greasy can create a beautiful, sleek look for your high ponytail. The look is flattering on most dresses and face shapes.
Add in an accessory
Want to let your hair down? Brush or untangle your hair, set them as you wish, and add in a pretty barrette or stylish metal accessories to hold them as they add a little bit of glamor to your hair.
