10 Hair Care Hacks for the Busy Modern Woman

Women today live busy lives, whether it’s going to your high-powered corporate job in the morning or taking care of your kids as they do their lessons.

Sometimes you may have trouble squeezing in your hair care routine after a busy day. But your hair isn’t just a source of pride, it’s also an extension of yourself and deserves all the love and care you can muster.

These 10 hair care hacks can help you maintain a luxurious head of hair despite your busy schedule.

  1. Brush, Brush, Brush

After a shower, your first instinct if you’re a busy woman is to blow dry before brushing. But this can damage your hair. Unless you’ve got a great discount for the best available hair transplant procedure, you’re better of brushing your hair as soon as you’ve patted it dry. This keeps the follicles from tangling while wet and becoming frizzy when they dry.

  1. Aim for Warmth

When you come home from a long day at the office or a busy day shopping with your girlfriends, you may want to hop in the bathroom for a hot shower. However, hot water will strip the oils and essential nutrients form your hair, leading to frizzy follicles and even hair loss. Instead, set your water heater to just above lukewarm. This will still be a soothing warm temperature without being damaging.

  1. Bun it Up

If you’re going to bed with wet hair, don’t leave it loose. Wet hair isn’t just slippery, it can easily tangle. When it dries, you’ll have to deal with knots that can pull your hair out from the roots. Unless you have hirsutism, this can be a problem. Before going to bed, brush your hair and coil it up in a bun. Secure the bun with hair pins to keep strands from tangling.

  1. Just the Tip

When you shampoo and condition your hair, do you massage both unto your scalp? If so, you’re doing it wrong. Conditioner is for revitalizing your hair and replenishing nutrients washed away by shampooing. Instead of focusing your conditioning on the roots, gather the tips of your hair follicles and massage the conditioner directly on them. This will help reduce the risk of split ends and breakage.

  1. Fruity Highlights

Have you always wanted beach blonde highlights but never have the time to do it yourself? Well, here’s a quick hack on hop you can have bleached hair without spending a lot of money. You can bleach your hair with lemons. Buy three or four lemons and squeeze out their juice. Dip a small comb in the juice and run it through the areas of your hair you want to highlight. Sit outside in the sun and voila! A cheap and organic bleached blonde hairstyle.

  1. Keep it Cool

Hair follicles are very susceptible to direct sunlight exposure. Aside from bleaching your hair strands, sunlight will also dry it out. Dry hair is easy to break and leads to unsightly split ends. When leaving the house, always wear a large hat when going out in direct sunlight. This will keep your hair cool and moist.

  1. Boar Bristles for Shine

Is there anyone who wants dull and lifeless hair? Of course not! But how do you get shiny and luxurious hair without expensive treatments or shampoos? And how can you get hair to shine with a busy schedule? The answer lies with your boar bristle brush. If you want to coax the natural shine out of your hair, simply brush your hair from roots to tips with a boar bristle brush two or three times.

  1. Be Gentle

Your hair is very delicate, and you need to be gentle when handling it. For example, when you’re brushing or combing your hair and you encounter a tangle, don’t yank. Not only can this pull out strands, it will also stress the other follicles. When toweling your hair after a bath, don’t rub because this will stress the follicles as well. Instead, pat dry your hair and slowly run it through a towel between your hands.

  1. Blow Quickly

The less time your hair is exposed to harsh environment such as heated air, the better. In the morning, when you’re blow drying your hair, make sure to dry it as quickly as possible. Use a brush to comb your hair as you blow dry to get the job done quicker and reduce heat damage to your hair follicles.

  1. Eggy Tresses

Hair needs nutrients, just like everything else in your body. You can nourish your hair with a simple egg mask. Although it may seem gross, egg masks provide your hair with essential nutrients it needs to grow strong and healthy, such as selenium and protein. Separate the yolks and whites of two eggs. Dip a comb in the eggs whites and brush it into your hair, covering every strand thickly. Leave it on for a half hour before washing it out.

Hair is a point of pride among women and each strand deserves to grow strong and beautiful. These hacks will let you live your life to the fullest without sacrificing your beautiful hair.
