7 Hairstyles for when You Can't Wash Your Hair ...


I think we all would like to have some ideas for hairstyles for when you can’t wash your hair.

Even if you are a girl that washes her hair every single day, there does come a time when you oversleep or your water is out or some other emergency prevents you from being able to wash it.

When those times come, these ideas for hairstyles for when you can’t wash your hair will be very welcome.

1. The Messy Bun

The Messy Bun

One of the easiest hairstyles for when you can’t wash your hair is the messy bun.

There are a lot of different ways that you can do a messy bun.

You can find some very informative tutorials on this subject if you want to look for them but basically, a messy bun is just a way to pull your hair up that doesn’t look overly polished or deliberate.

You can go fancy with many bobby pins and careful placement to look a certain way or just let your messy bun happen.

2. A Side Braid

Braids are really trendy right now.

This is a good thing when you are looking for a hairstyle when you don’t have time to wash your hair.

The braid also holds well because of the texture dirty hair tends to have.2

You can choose to do a regular braid, a French braid, a fishtail or other variety of braid.

3. Curls


For me personally, wearing my hair straight is not a good choice when it isn’t freshly washed.

I imagine this is the case for a lot of girls.

Curls however, work very well with dirty hair.

Just like with braids, there is more texture for the curl to grab to and hold.

You also may have the advantage of having some of yesterday’s hair product in it to help you out.
