“How often should I wash my hair?” is a question that has caused much debate and discussion. While there is no correct answer – it depends entirely upon the type and quality of your hair – it is generally believed that washing your hair every single day isn’t the best idea. Washing your mane everyday will strip your scalp of the nourishing natural oils that your body produces, often leaving your hair feeling dry, damaged and dull. So give your hair a break from the shampoo and try out one of these second-day hairstyles!
The Easy Hairband Tuck
Although this hairstyle looks very luxurious and fancy, it is super easy to create! Start by spraying some dry shampoo into your roots, if needed, and tease your hair to get some volume going. Next, place the headband on top of your head, like you would wear a crown. Now, start tucking your hair into your headband from the top-down. It is easier to do this in smaller sections, and don’t worry about being neat, because messy is always good. Once you have tucked all of your hair in, use some hair spray to set it in place, and you’re good to go!
The Doughnut Bun
When you’re dealing with second-day hair, and you don’t have enough time to create an elaborate hairstyle, the hair doughnut is your best friend. We suggest that you snap up a couple of these beauties. Start by teasing your hair for some extra volume, and then put it up in a high ponytail. Thread the ponytail through the doughnut, and then gather your hair into the doughnut shape by finding the centre of your ponytail and spreading the hair evenly around it. Secure the bun with a tie and wrap the ends around the base of your ponytail. Use some bobby pins to secure the bun in place. Voila!
The Four-Strand Braid
If you are a sucker for fun, braided hairstyles, the four-strand braid is for you. It is a simple twist on the classic braid, with, as the name suggests, four sections instead of three. Start by sweeping all of your hair over your shoulder, and divide it into four equal sections. Now, to make this explanation easier, number each section from 1 to 4 and left to right. To begin the braid, cross section 2 over section 1, then section 4 over 3. Now, cross 1 over 4 in the centre of the braid. Renumber all of the sections and start again. Keep repeating these steps until you reach the end of your hair, and secure the braid in place with a tie. Gently tug at your braid to loosen it up, spritz it with some hair spray and you’re good to go!
