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.

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!

I know this post is about your hair, but I have to say I love the pretty lace top you're wearing here! Your hair looks cute in all four styles.:)

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!

I love dry shampoo, I used tresemme for a long time but just switched to herbal essences and love it even more.

Ever So Jenny said...

I wash my hair twice a week so my routine is pretty similar. Your hair looks great!

Unknown said...

Oh, I love the bun!

seaangel4444 said...

Wow, thanks! I love the day 2 look!

Coline T. said...

I love all these styles, really nice! :-D

Unknown said...

I don't like washing my hair often, so I need to look into a dry shampoo. I love the 'quick' do's throughout the week when you don't wash your hair everyday.

Stephanie O said...

Wow you make that look so easy! Thanks!

Rachel C said...

Great tips! I want to reduce washing my hair so often and I think dry shampoo may be the answer!

Unknown said...

I would love one of these! I would love to be able to curl and straighten my hair.

Great hair tool set to create different looks, love that it comes in a while set so you don't have to buy them all separately.

KathleenKL said...

Beautiful hair and I like all the different looks--very nice that you can do them all with one tool

Natalie said...

I really like the soft curls look! I will have to wear it to work someday.

Unknown said...

Great styles. Love them all.

wendy browne said...

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.

Great tips...your soft curls look amazing! I need these tools desperately, it's time to retire my old straightener. Thanks for the tips☺

Live Laugh Love said...

I am liking this hair straightener it looks really good to use not cheap.

Unknown said...

I love the different styles that can be produced with the product. I especially love the soft curls.

Unknown said...

I really need to work towards washing my hair less often! I'll have to try these different looks throughout the week! I never considered the fact that different hairstyles can actually camouflage greasy hair.

Unknown said...

I haven't used a hair donut before and the high bun hairstyle looks very elegant. I haven't tried dry shampoo either but I would like to have that type of product for greasy hair.

Louanne Baelde said...

Great tips! What a soft look! Thank you so much!

ckorando said...

I love the transition throughout the four days. These are styles that could work for work or casual days.

Ninna Berries said...

Great review! Perfect for me because I am starting to work in an office and I need this a "low maintenance hairstyles". Thank you darling!

Nivona Holmes said...

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 :)

peachy64 said...

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

Cori Westphal said...

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!

Unknown said...

This would make a great gift to myself!

annajfernandez said...

slick design!

Unknown said...

your hair is beautiful.

Unknown said...

Great tip Thank you for sharing

Alison Anderson said...

Very pretty :) I love multi tasking tools , saves some space <#

Unknown said...

What an awesome set - I could do what you do without having to blow-out every day!

Tan said...

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.

The ponytail is cute, will have to try that one

Unknown said...

Dana Smith said...

Very nice demonstration of hairstyles, all look great. Would love to have that entire set of straighteners/curling iron!

Daily Woman (Lacey) said...

I hate to wear the same style everyday, I love all these great styles.

Unknown said...

Thanks for the demo. I love to try new styles.

Shari said...

Like all the styles, but the bun and pony tail are some of my low maintenance styles. Sometimes I'm so lazy that I but it in one big French braid for the week.
