Second Day Hair Fixes
Unwashed hair doesn’t necessarily have to mean a bad hair day!
Life often seems to be moving a mile a minute. Between long workdays, meetings, family events, friend gatherings, errands, and an otherwise endless list of responsibilities we try to balance on our plates, the second we get that spare hour of free time (if we’re lucky enough to get one) all we want to do is, well, nothing. The last thing we’re thinking about is jumping in the shower because we know that will lead to having to wash, brush, blow dry, and style our hair – which can be a long, arduous, and dreaded task for some. Instead, we may choose to lounge around in our sweats and give in to the fact that we’ll just have to suffer through a bad hair day the following morning – or do we? It seems as if a group of people who decided they had had enough of bad hair days banded together and came up with some solutions – the perfect products and styles to help you tame that unwashed hair and have it looking good as new – lucky for us! If you fall into the category of said people who’d rather choose sweats over washing their hair, try out some of these Second Day Hair Fixes to avoid a bad hair day the next morning!
The number one way to manage second day hair and avoid suffering from a bad hair day is to use products that will fool people into thinking your hair is freshly washed. Dry shampoos are at the top of this list. Typically, dry shampoos come in a spray or powder form, which is perfect for absorbing excess oil that hasn’t been washed out. Additionally, dry shampoos also clean your hair without the use of water, and they leave your hair smelling fresh and clean. The next product is for all the ladies with the curls. Use a curl renewing spray to help redefine your curls and reduce slept on curl frizz. If your hair tends to fall flat and lose its shape after being slept on, opt for a spray that will add natural waves or texture. Finally, if you just need to touch up your natural style and tame any flyaways, a simple spray of hairspray should do the trick! The great thing about using products on second day hair is that they’ll leave your hair smelling clean and delicious!

In addition to relying on products to help wash away those bad hair day woes, a simple hairstyle can do the trick. Braids are the perfect style for second day hair because they hide the excess oil buildup that most hair is subject to after not being washed. On the other hand, you can use that oil and any potential frizz and flyaways to your advantage, and style your hair in a messy bun. Buns are not only chic, but they’re easier to achieve when your hair is more towards the tousled, un-kept spectrum. Ponytails are also a quick fix, as they pull any frizz and flyaways off of your face while still looking cute, and, finally, headbands are perfect because they hide any grease and frizz and can be found in hundreds of styles, colors, and patterns.
