In the midst of chaos and lockdowns, moms are still the busiest people out there. Not only do they still have families to take care of, but many of them are also now having to work from home as well. While that’s a good thing in most cases, it can be a little hard to balance work and home life when it’s all done from the same place.
If you’re like most super busy moms, the last thing you worry about is your hair when there’s so much else to be done in your life. Luckily, this blog has a few hassle-free hair care tips to help you look your best with minimal effort.
Stop Tying Your Hair Back Every Day
While it’s easy to just tie your hair back in the mornings and leave it throughout the busy day, it’s not really good for your hair. Tying your hair back can eventually do damage to it. One way to deal with bad hair days or your hair getting into your face is by having your hair trimmed. If you’re not down with getting your hair chopped, then there are other ways to tie your hair back that aren’t as damaging.
Use the Right Hair Products
When you’re a busy mom, you don’t have the time to do all of the expensive treatments that some moms use. Below you can find a few of the right hair products that won’t take you long to use, and won’t cost you an arm and a leg to boot.
- Dry shampoo is perfect for those days you just can’t bring yourself to shampoo. A bottle usually lasts a few months, so it’s well worth the price.
- Hair masks that can be used once a week.
- Leave on serums and sprays that can be used at the last minute on a bad hair day.
- Good shampoos and conditioners.
Apply Hair Oil at Night
Mornings are hectic for any busy mom, so applying an oil treatment gets shoved way down the list of things to do. Don’t skip the treatment altogether, instead apply your hair oil treatment at night. An added benefit of applying oil to your hair at night is that it soaks into your hair and makes it even healthier and more manageable than it would be if applied in the mornings.
Go for the Short Look
Those long, flowing locks might have been convenient when you weren’t a mom, but face it, being a busy mom just doesn’t give you the time you need to take care of your long locks the way you used to. If you don’t have the energy to spare to take care of your long hair, it might be better to go short at least until the kids are older, and you have more time to spare. The good thing is, there are plenty of fashionable looks out there for short hair, and if you don’t like it, it will grow back.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
This is something that’s been being preached to you since you were a child. Drinking water will not only help you physically, but it’ll help you keep up with your hair as well. It’s something you need to do every day anyway, so hydrate properly to keep your hair looking great, as well as your skin and your overall appearance.
These are just a few hair care tips for the busy mom. From using a dry shampoo to drinking enough water, there are things you can do to keep your hair neat and pretty, without having to take a lot of time to do it.
