Tricks and Tips for Glowing Hair Even when you Don’t Have Time to Wash it

You’re in a rush and you don’t have time to shower, let alone wash your hair. But you still want it to look nice and clean and shiny. Here are a few tricks you can try for those mornings when hair washing is out of the question.

Baby powder

Sprinkling baby powder on your hands and then running it all through your hair, paying special attention to the roots, the jawline and underneath, will make it instantly look and smell fresher. It will soak up the grease and make it look newly washed. Yeaah!

Run a blow dryer through your dry hair, then style it

Sometimes all it takes to give your hair that just-washed lift is to run a blow dryer through it while it’s dry and then style it as usual. That alone can get rid of some of the oil buildup and make it look like you’ve just stepped out of the shower.

Wash and condition only the front and sides of your hair in the sink, then blow dry it

If you’re short on time but still have a little to play with, you can streamline your routine by just washing the front and sides of your hair in the sink, then conditioning and blow drying it. It will magically look as if you’ve washed the whole thing.

Dry shampoo

Dry shampoo is your best friend on those unwashed hair days. Nothing quite does the trick of making your hair look clean like this. Spritz it all over your hair, including the roots, and then blow it dry and you’ll be amazed at how fresh and pretty it looks.
