This is the day I wash my hair. Using a co-wash to save time, I wash my hair once or twice depending on if it needs it or not. Before I rinse it the last time, I comb all the tangles out with a wide tooth comb.
After towel drying for a while, I blow dry it with my Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer. This is an ingenious invention (if you ask me!), someone figured out how turn a round brush into a hair dryer by blowing hot air out the center of the brush. This thing has cut my dry time in half!
At this point, I have invested about 20 minutes into my hair and want to be moving on to other things, so I stop here. Tomorrow, I will actually style my hair.
The only other thing I do is put my hair up in a messy bun with one of these coiled hair bands while I sleep. The unique shape creates and preserves curls instead of making that weird bump that regular hair bands leave in your hair.
Today is the day I actually curl my hair. It is my best hair day, so if I have something special going on, I plan for the Day 2 hair!
I divide it into six sections and starting with the bottom section on one side, straighten and curl using my cheapo Target curling iron.
Leaving 1-2 inches sticking out the the end (meaning I don’t curl the ends), I curl towards my face and away from my face until I get to the top portions, then I curl all the curls away from my face. This gives more volume and a tosseled look from the back and more of a windblown look from the front. Finally, I finish with a finishing spray to make it extra silky.
At night I use the special pony tail holder mentioned above.
Day Three- Five
Now I rely heavily on the miracles of dry shampoo for the next few days! I divide the my hair into parts, one inch apart and spray the dry shampoo along my scalp. This works even for someone who works out every day.
I quickly touch up my curls, shine with the finishing spray and sleep with the ponytail holder.
Now things are getting a little iffy, the product is starting to get built up in my hair and I can’t fake it much longer. I will usually wear a hat, but a scarf, headband, pony tail or messy bun would be a choice for Day 6, as well.
Ok, now I’m really pushing my luck! On Day 7, I will use any of the above suggestions, but I need to be somewhere in public, there is one more option I will employ. I will quickly lean over the bathroom sink and wash just my bangs and the very top part of my hair with my cowash. Then, I blow dry and curl about six curls, finishing with the shine spray. Voila! One last day of decent hair with minimal work!
