    5 Low-Maintenance Hair Tips to Make Your Life Easier

    Sometimes you just don’t have time to do your hair. Maybe it’s an early class, church camp, mission trip or just too much going on in your schedule. These quick and easy go-tos (that you may or may not know about) take hardly any time and will enhance your look without much effort!

    Dry shampoo: This is a low-maintenance girl’s best-kept secret. Who has time to wash their hair every day? Who even wants to wash their hair every day? It’s better for the natural oils in your hair to only shampoo it a few times a week. But what if your hair looks oily? You just spray dry shampoo on the greasy spots and boom—fake fresh hair! The dry shampoo even comes in colors to match your hair if you want. Added bonus: Hair tends to look thicker and stay styled better with this product.

    Sock bun: A high-top bun is just as easy to make as a messy bun or ponytail, but is more dressy and fashionable. You can make your own with a sock, but it’s much easier and not very expensive to buy one. Get one the same color as your hair and small enough that your hair will cover it. Put your hair in a high ponytail, put the sock bun around the ponytail, pull your hair around it, tuck it in and bobby pin the ends if necessary. Spray or comb down any flyaways. If those quick directions don’t cover it, check out this quick tutorial:


    Pin curls: This handy-dandy trick has been giving girls luscious curls since before electricity. For me, they have been helpful in three instances: when I need to have pretty hair really early in the morning and want to fix it the night before; when I’ve been at camps or mission trips without the ability to use styling tools; and when I want curls to last all day. You can do it with dry or damp hair and create loose or tight curls. Basically, you take small sections of hair, roll them up to your head, pin them in place and let them sit for a while or overnight. Once you take them out, you have gorgeous no-heat curls! Here is a how-to video that gets it right:


    Head wrap: This is great if you have NO TIME. Like not even five minutes. Head wraps also happen to be really in this season and easy to find in stores and online, or even make yourself. Throw on a wrap over a messy bun to keep away the frizzes, wear it over your hair or use it headband style. It’s the perfect quick way to still look like you put in a little effort.

    Loose side braid: This is an elegant turn on a style you have probably been wearing for years. It’s perfect for hot days or when you’ll be doing activities and need your hair out of the way. You just do a loose-hanging, tasseled low braid that swoops to the side. Use a small hair tie at the end and don’t worry about wispy hairs—they add to the style. Pulling the braid over one shoulder is what gives it the mature look. To dress it up a little, part your hair on the opposite side of the braid. This one is great too because if it gets messed up during the day, you can simply re-fix it on the go.
