I know… am I pretty much the worst blogger on the planet these days or what? You don’t have to say it… I know the answer is yes.
Between my new position at my corporate job (yay for promotions! Boo to limited free time), trying to get out there and date, being sick on and off, and just general NYC hysteria I think it’s safe to say that my free time is EXTREMELY limited. Like… I regularly forget to eat because there is just no time.
But anyway – this newfound schedule has caused me to modify a few things and my haircare routine is definitely on that list. Remember a few weeks back when I shared how I get my favorite warm weather hair style? Well fast forward to today and I’m still rocking that style and LOVING IT. Honestly I never in my life thought that I would have “wash & go” hair because I always viewed it as being unmanageable but I am happy to say that I can manage it just fine! And thanks to Suave Professionals® Sea Mineral Infusion Moisturizing Buoyant Body Shampoo and Conditioner paired with the Suave Professionals® Sea Mineral Infusion Texturizing Sea Salt Spray I can get it done in no time at all!
The only problem with this hairstyle is the fact that it starts to look a little… funky(?) around day three. Any curly/wavy girl can tell you that a brush on dry hair is the closest thing to the devil that she’ll ever know so this means that I don’t brush my hair until I wash it next. Pair that with the fact that I only wash my hair every 5-6 days and you can probably imagine that we have a little problem. It’s taken me YEARS to train my hair to only be washed around once a week which means that I’m not going to start washing it daily any time soon so I needed to find another option to keep my hair looking semi-normal throughout the week.
My solution to this problem is a slight style modification that literally takes all of 60 seconds and can be done in less than three steps. What gets better than that? And luckily because the messy waves are all the rage right now I don’t really have to worry about it looking perfect. I can just apply a bit of product, throw it up, and I’m out the door in no time!
The half up/half down bun look is all the rage lately and that’s exactly what I rock on days where my hair isn’t looking its absolute best.
First I spray my dry hair with Suave Professionals® Sea Mineral Infusion Texturizing Sea Salt Spray and let it dry. This helps to reactivate my waves and give my hair a bit more texture so I can put it up with ease.
Then I take the top portion of my hair and section it out from the rest of my hair. I isolate this and then twist it in a messy bun… location to be determined depending on what I’m feeling that day and what my hair feels like doing. Sometimes it’s more of a top knot and sometimes it sits a little bit lower but when you think about it that’s really the beauty of this style because you can’t do it incorrectly! It’s really whatever you want it to be.
Once you have this section out of the way you’re pretty much done! The underside of my hair is a bit more straight than the top portion so sometimes I’ll spritz this part with more Suave Professionals® Sea Mineral Infusion Texturizing Sea Salt Spray just to give it a little texture and definition but that just depends on how my hair is behaving that day.
That is literally it. Easiest hairstyle ever? I think so? But I can’t take all the credit, the Suave Professionals® Sea Mineral Infusion Texturizing Sea Salt Spray is the real star of the show because it gives incredible hold that lasts all day long while defining my waves and giving them body. I like to pair it with the Suave Professionals® Sea Mineral Infusion Moisturizing Buoyant Body Shampoo and Conditioner because even though I don’t technically need volume I like the fact that it gives my hair 24 hour body and doesn’t weigh it down at all. This is definitely a winning combo as far as I’m concerned.
