Lazy Girl’s Guide To Second Day Hair

Diswater Blonnde with Second Day Hair

Getting out the Door with Second Day Hair

Going to the hairdressing salon walking out with a gorgeous blow dry, sleeping on it and waking up with bed hair . . . UGH, a woman’s worst nightmare. In this competitive culture we all live in, who really has the time these days to be shampooing, blow drying and styling their hair every day?

Here are a few easy tips that in few minutes the morning after can save the day and make the most of that flat, limp and most likely oily hair.
Woman in Shower with Shower Cap

A Partial Shampoo

To restyle a little, pull your hair back in the shower with a headband or shower cap and wash just the bangs or front section of your hair. It will give a freshened look to your hair without a complete shampoo, blow dry and style.

A Dry Shampoo

There are many dry shampoo products on the market, one of my favs is Fudge Dry Shampoo in a can. A good dry shampoo will absorb oiliness while adding life back into your hair, alternatively talcum powder does the trick too if you’re in a pinch. Apply the product lightly on the oily areas, massaging it in thoroughly and then brushing your hair. I find dry shampoos a much gentler solution to continuous shampooing which can dry out your hair and strip out too much of the natural oils your hair needs to stay healthy.

The Messy Ponytail

The Old Reliable Ponytail

If you prefer to just put the hair up in a messy pony tail is the way to go, lightly tease your hair at the crown and pull back into a low ponytail pulling out a few pieces to soften your face, it’s a casual trendy way to make the hair look like it was done that day.


Head Bands

Headbands were made for hiding second-day hair, try experimenting with stretchy fabric options, skinny silk scarves, or hard “Alice” bands. This is an especially useful accessory for blondes as you’ll be able to hide your part, which is where oil can make your roots look even darker.


Wear a Hat

Another option is big floppy hats, which I love for their versatility as they hide a multitude of sins.

Hope these tips help you ladies and save many a painful second day hair occurrences

Frizzy Hair Help

Woman Struggling to fix her summer frizzy hair

Victim of frizzy hair? Try these tips!

We’ve all been a victim of frizzy hair at one time or another, haven’t we? But you don’t have to succumb to the fuzz! Frizzy hair can be caused by a number of things, such as;

  1. too much humidity in the air which causes the hair cuticle to swell and frizz,
  2. lack of moisture in the air which causes hair to dry out and frizz and
  3. 3) hair that has not been cut in a while causing split ends to split up the shaft of the hair.

Thanks to technology though, we now can say farewell to the frizz! When you need to look your best this summer and find that your frizzy hair wants to take control, take these remedies to heart, and go from frizz to fab!

Let’s start with one of my favorite products designed to tackle wild and unruly frizzy hair types. Frizz fighting serums really do work wonders to help tame fly-away strands and smooth frizzy hair. My pick? Schwarzkopf Osis Magic Anti-Frizz Gloss Serum, which sells between $14.00 to $17.00 for 1.7oz. (a little goes a long way)  It’s a great product that will fight frizz and give you tons of shine. It works just like it says, like voodoo … it’s Magic! You can also try smoothing shampoos, conditioners and creams to help tame the beast.

Another way to fight frizzy hair is by starting your style with a great blow out. Make sure you are using a nozzle attachment on your hair dryer and direct the air straight down the shaft of your hair while pulling your brush taught. Don’t forget to use the cool shot button for about 10 seconds on strands before releasing hair from the brush, it will most definitely help fight frizz, set the style and create shine, shine, shine!Wearing your hair curly? Then make sure to scrunch a smoothing serum into your hair before air drying or using the diffuser attachment. Or try a curl definer, like TIGI’s Curl’s Rock!  Also, don’t touch or manipulate the hair until it is 100% dry, or you’ll run the risk of contributing to the frizz.

Need a quick fix? Try running a dryer sheet over strands for an anti-static fast frizz fighter. You can also run a dryer sheet over your brush or comb and then brush your hair for a similar effect.

Summertime is notorious for bringing out the frizz in the best of us, so be sure to keep my tips handy during the upcoming hot, dry months so your hair can stay nice and smooth all summer long.
