    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
