5 hair tips for busy women

Dry Shampoo:
If your hair gets too oily too quickly then invest in a dry shampoo instead of stripping your hair of its natural moisture by washing it every single day.

Not only does it do wonders for greasy roots, but some variants are so advanced that they now contain ingredients which boost shine and texture.

Bonus: Some newer products even gives your hair enough volume for you to style it up.

Overnight waves:

For stunning day waves, simply braid your hair while damp the night before.

Top tip:
Make your braids tight enough to avoid frizzing.

Air dry:  
If you enjoy having fresh hair in the mornings, but hate the tedious blow drying process, then this is perfect for you.
Avoid ‘flyaways’ by applying a smidgen of hair food to your towel-dried locks.

Must try: Silicon! I know they say it should be used after you’ve blow-dried, but trust me… it adds the necessary moisture needed for a great look.

Loose Ponytail:
An effortless hairstyle that literally takes seconds to make. Worn high or low, the pony is a quick-fix hairdo that works on most face shapes.

Overnight conditioning:

The most convenient way to give your hair the nutrients it needs is to apply conditioner in the evening and to let it stay in over night for a quick wash in the morning.
