I used to wash my hair every single day. With little to no time in the morning, I slowly learn how to work with my hair and not washing it so often. Today, I wanted to share a few different hairstyles that I repeat every week. They are not really "hairstyles" per say..just things I do differently everyday to change up the look.

Day 1: I start off the week with freshly washed hair. I always make sure to spray the TRESemme protective spray before using any heat styling tools. After blow drying, I run the Lionesse straightener through it quickly. This particular straightener has temperature controls which is important because you would want to be able to adjust the temperature to prevent heat damage.

Day 2: I love styling my hair on day 2 because it is still clean but has some grip and texture. I begin curling by taking a small section of hair and wrap it around the curling iron. I am a fan of tapered curling irons. It works best for loose and relaxed curls. The curling iron made of tourmaline ceramic which helps create long lasting curls while protecting the hair's natural luster. I hold each strand 5-8 seconds, release then finish off with the TRESemme hairspray to give it a lasting hold

Day 3: My hair is definitely getting oily by then. Before styling, I spray the TRESemme dry shampoo at the roots of my hair. It helps adsorb oil and adds subtle texture. I start off my taking 2 small sections of hair at the crown of my head, backcomb and pin them back. I then put the rest of my hair in a low ponytail.

Day 4: At this point, my hair is definitely greasy. High bun = best way to cover up greasy hair. It literally take me 2 minutes to put my hair in a high bun. Start off by pulling my hair back into a high ponytail, gently tease small sections, loop my ponytail through a hair donut and pin. This complete set also comes with a mini straightener which is great for touch ups. All hair tools mentioned here have dual voltage meaning that they will work in the US as well as anywhere else in the world.

  1. I am a truly low maintenance person. I bought the straightener that can double up as curler too, but I think I used it once. I guess I am 'cheaper' than that LOL!

  5. Definitely great tips and styles - I try to do the exact same with mine and not get into the habit of washing it everyday. I love my big top knots, but I also know that once it's up like that, I'm committed to washing it the next day, so it bums me out not to have options to sleep in in the morning. :)
    Your pony is my favorite!

  22. I love the transitions! I also wash as few times as possible as I have semi coloring that fades with each wash, so I have to do the straight/wavy/pinned up as well.

  41. It will be a whole year in March that I've gone without doing any heat styling (not even a blow dryer) so I would love to celebrate by getting a new flat iron to style my hair :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. love these showed what different styles i could do and the great product

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm with you. I used to wash my hair every day, and then my stylist told me that's why I was getting split ends and breakage. I'm not quite up to 4 days yet, but it's amazing how much better my hair takes styling when it's a bit dirty!

    ReplyDelete
  44. This would make a great gift to myself!

  48. This is so timely. I just recently switched from washing every other day to washing only until my hair is extremely oily because I find that even washing every other day still dries out my scalp. Haha! Will be sure to try this out.
