One thing that all women know is that it isn’t recommended to wash your hair every day. Sure, it stays nice and clean, but it can also be damaging in a way, stripping your hair of some of the natural oils that help to keep it healthy. You can also get into a vicious cycle of washing every day and then suffering from greasiness much more frequently than you should. When you are stretching out your wash days, you have to come up with different things to do with your hair on its second and third days. Here are five ways to style second day hair.
Braids are your best friend in a day two situation, because your hair will be at that crossroads from fresh to slightly greasy, and the texture that evokes is perfect for creating strong shiny braids that will definitely stay in place. It’s also a style that doesn’t require any bobby pins, so you know that you will be comfortable all day long.
2 Top Knot
When in doubt, just pile it all on the top of your head! A messy top bun is thankfully bang on trend right now, so nobody will think twice when you enter the room rocking one. They will just thing you are being on trend rather than trying to hide the emergence of a few greasy roots here and there!
3 Cover up
Cover up isn’t just a term used in makeup! Try something like a half up, half down do that incorporates a thick headband. It will hide a lot of your hair at the roots, leaving only the lower portions visible. This is perfect because it is the roots that always start to look bad first when it comes to second and third day hair.
4 Dry Shampoo
You should never underestimate the power of dry shampoo! You can’t really get away with it for more than one day in two, but on that second day slump, a quick spray of the magic stuff and your locks will literally look like they did 24 hours ago! It’s amazing!
5 Beachy Waves
Take advantage of the beachy waves look, because it is one that requires spraying in a salt solution which can help to mask any oncoming grease by adding in a crunchier, frizzier texture anyway.
