Washing your hair everyday has been proven to cause dryness and damage and this is how the “No ‘Poo” revolution / movement came about. No ‘poo which translates to No Shampoo encourages women to skip a day or two of washing their hair with shampoo to lessen dryness and to get healthier hair. Washing your hair everyday can strip your hair and your scalp of its natural oils which keep the hair soft and moisturized. If your hair tends to get oily after a long day, you can use dry shampoo instead. It absorbs the grease without drying out your hair and it lets you sport second day hair without a problem. As for styling second day hair, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. Just check out these simple hairstyles for second day hair that you can rock anytime.
- Messy bun – nothing is sexier than a messy bun done right and you can only achieve a truly messy bun with second day hair. The texture, the look and the feel of a messy bun becomes more ‘authentic’ with second day hair and it holds up a lot better, too! There are countless ways to style a messy bun. You can make it as high or as low as you want and you can do it as messy as you please. Just gather your hair up in a bun after finger combing it and then pull out a few strands to get the messy effect.
- Curls – if you happen to need to go to an event where you need to dress up and you’re sporting second day hair, don’t give in to the temptation of washing your hair! Instead, use dry shampoo to get rid of the greasiness and then bust out your curling iron and curl away. It’s a nice way to get your second day hair looking fancy and the texture of second day hair will make the curls last longer, too. If the event is expected to last for hours, just spritz on a good amount of hair spray for good measure.
- Braids – need something just dainty, simple, cute and easy? Do braids! Braids are a great addition to any hairstyle but they also look fabulous on their own. You can do half up braids, braid a section / part of your hair or just do an entire French braid or fishtail braid to keep your hair away from your face. Braided headbands make interesting alternative to regular plastic ones, too.
- Boho waves – for a really easy but super chic hairstyle that you can do in less than 3 minutes with second day hair, try boho waves. Spritz a bit of water on your hair then apply some styling mousse and / or a bit of gel (depending on how much hair you have) then scrunch your hair up real good. Repeat until you get the kind of waves you like and set with a bit of hairspray. This hairstyle is perfect for those lazy days when you just don’t want to do anything fancy or complicated to your hair.
