We all know that 2020 has been a dubious gift that seems to keep on giving, but there have been some little threads of silver lining. The first being the change in how we many of us work. We’ve migrated towards an easier, less stressful work from home routine which doesn’t require us to wash our hair and put on full makeup and heels every single morning.
With some work happening from afar and on Zoom, it means we can relax our routine a little. Not too much as we still need to look good to feel on top of things, but enough to give our hair and skin a little rest.
Change Your Routine
You might still be clinging to the everyday shampoo routine. If so, let it go! The reason we’re don’t panic about unwashed hair is that there’s a little secret we know, besides the fact that leaving our hair at least three days between washes is super beneficial in order to give it a rest from the constant shampooing. The natural oils moisturise our scalp and tresses and all that extra grease provides great grip and texture for styling!
The trick is to use the build-up of products and oils in your hair to your advantage so that it looks voluminous and healthy instead of limp and greasy. Fortunately, there are a few hair hacks and some hairstyles that will help you to get this done and it doesn’t take expert fingers or stacks of time and money. With a little preparation and know-how, your unwashed hair will be your friend and ally from now on, so read on for how to disguise and make the most of third-day hair.
If you haven’t already added dry shampoo to your hair routine, start now. This product was created for days like this. Once you’ve massaged it into your roots you can throw your hair back into a messy bun or loose pony and instead of looking grimy and unwashed, you’ll be rocking a voluminous, teased and tousled look. It’s a lifesaver when you don’t have time to wash and style your hair.
