Hair hacks to speed up your styling
Whether you're always on the move or just want a streamlined hair care routine, these tips and hacks are here to make your life a whole lot easier:
Try styling your hair the night before
Styling your hair the night before allows you to wake up with already-styled hair and removes the need to spend time blow-drying or straightening in the morning. You can set your hair in braids, twists, or a bun and use a little product to keep your style in place, undoing it in the morning for heatless waves or curls. This hack works especially well for those with long or thick hair that takes a lot of time to style.
Dry shampoo to refresh hair and add volume
Dry shampoo is a game-changing product for refreshing your hair without having to wash it. It absorbs oil and sweat from the scalp, giving your hair a cleaner appearance and more volume. This hack is perfect for on-the-go styling or when you don't have time for a full wash and blowout.
Leave-in conditioner to detangle & add moisture
Another live-saver product, leave-in conditioner detangles hair and adds moisture — saving time because you don't have to rinse it out like a traditional conditioner. It can be used on damp or dry hair to make it easier to style, and is especially helpful for those with dry, curly or tangled hair.
Separate your hair into sections to speed up blow-drying
To speed up brow drying, try separating your hair into smaller, manageable sections. It allows you to focus on one area at a time, ensuring that each section is fully dried and styled before moving on to the next. This technique helps you avoid missing spots and reduces overall drying time.
Hair styling cream to add texture & hold without stiffness
Hair styling creams add texture and hold to hair without leaving it stiff or crunchy. They can be used on wet or dry hair and help tame flyaways, add definition to curls or create gorgeous heatless waves. This saves you time by reducing the need for multiple styling products, and allows for easy touch-ups throughout the day.
