When you’re in a rush in the morning – what do you find to be your most essential beauty go-to items? Is it your mascara? Or your hair straightener? Or maybe is it simply just a bit of lip-gloss? For me, nothing makes me feel more pulled together than those days that my hair just works. I’m happy to go completely makeup free (though, I do love my eyeliner + mascara) when my hair looks its best. Who needs mascara, blush, or bronzer when your tresses are the main attraction, right?
For me though, beautiful hair is healthy hair. So over the last few years, I’ve tracked down a few techniques that don’t just result in pretty tresses – they are also completely essential to keeping my hair at its healthiest. Today I am sharing my top five tips to having perfect hair every day!
5 Ways to Wake up With Perfect Hair Every Day
1. Braid It at Night:
One thing I’ve done over the last few years is braid my hair before going to sleep. I have braiding it helps it grow, get healthier, and avoid tangling and damage overnight. Also, this braid helps create soft loose waves which make for an easy hairstyle come the morning!
2. Use a Hair Serum:
I am a huge fan of hair serum, and in particular, I love Macadamia Natural Healing Oil Treatment. Without it, my hair would be fuzzy and frayed looking all day every day. I use serum more often than most do and that’s because my hair is color-treated and naturally wavy which makes it on the dry side. I use hair serum in the morning before work, after washing my hair, and just before braiding my hair each night. I’ve found having this 3X a day routine has helped improve the ends of my hair and I’ve been able to go longer without hair trims. Plus, using a bit of serum on the ends of your hair also helps to soften them to create a more streamlined look.
3. Use a Heat-less Curls Technique:
Don’t want to use heat on your hair every day? Try using a heatless method to getting those perfect curls! This heatless beach waves hair tutorial result in the most gorgeous curls – and best of all, they are completely damage free!
4. Use a Detangling Spray:
If you usually wake up with super knotted hair than it may be time to invest in a hair detangling spray. I personally love Biolage Daily Leave-in Tonic.
5. Use a Silk Pillowcase:
When I switched to a silk pillowcase I immediately saw results – I would wake up with completely tangle-free hair. In-fact, it was so tangle-free that many days I was able to skip brushing my hair at all. Silk pillowcases are soft on your hair so they don’t cause breakage like a regular pillow cover would. Rather than having your hair rub against rough fibers, you hair glides over the silk making it less likely to get damaged overnight or tangled. Grab your own silk pillowcase on Amazon for $25.00.
