Whether you spend your day in a busy South Florida office, chasing after energetic toddlers or chauffeuring pre-teens around Davie, Florida, there is one thing all moms have in common: they are incessantly busy. By the end of each day, the last thing on any mother’s mind is glamour (aside from the usual escape to Inscape Beauty Salon fantasies, of course). While you may not have countless hours to spare perfecting your manicure or wardrobe, these simple tips will ensure that your hair looks fresh and healthy with little effort.
Don’t Wash Everyday
This is certainly the easiest hair care tip for moms who barely make it to the shower each day. Many people are prone to washing with shampoo and conditioner each time they shower. This strips away all of the natural oils produced and leaves your hair dry and prone to damage. Instead, aim to shampoo only a few times a week. If you have oily locks, opt for a dry shampoo (or use cornstarch) to decrease the appearance of oil between shampooing. Be sure to brush the dry shampoo through your hair after applying to prevent specs of powder from being spotted at the next PTA meeting.
Rinse Hair with Cold Water
Warm water is relaxing and aids in helping shampoo to remove dirt, oil and debris more effectively. After shampooing and conditioning, however, rinsing the hair with cold water will close the hair cuticle. This means that your hair will hold onto the moisture longer and it will also produce a more vibrant shine.
Take a Hair and Nail Supplement
You agonize over your children’s diets and scour Pinterest for hours to find healthy recipes that they will accept, but what about your nutritional needs? For your hair to look its best, be sure to eat a well-balanced diet full of proteins, fruits and vegetables. If you all too often find yourself skipping meals or choosing less than ideal snacks for the sake of saving time and precious energy, add a hair and nail supplement to drastically improve the appearance and condition of your locks.
Work with Your Natural Hair Texture
Many curly haired moms spend a lot of time, energy and money in hair salons to straighten their hair and vice versa. Instead of fighting your natural hair texture, embrace it. As an added bonus, you will be on top of the latest trends as this season is all about individuality and going au naturel.
Try Overnight Hairstyles
There is nothing more hectic than mornings with children. To ensure that your hair looks its best, despite only having 30 seconds to focus on your own locks, try overnight styles. These styles can be done after the kids are in bed and the rest is done while you are sleeping. All that is require in the morning is a little fluffing here and there before you rush out the door (or even in the parking lot of your child’s school, if you’re running late again).
Go for a Low-Maintenance Cut
Above all else, you can set yourself up for success by opting for a low-maintenance haircut. Styles such as a classic bob or pixie cut require very little effort and look fabulous for any occasion.
