Too Busy To Do Your Hair? Here Are 4 Tips You Can Use To Help You Fit Hair Care Into A Busy Lifestyle

CaptureSo my husband asked me the other day, “Sweetheart, I love you but your styles have been mostly buns instead of the creative-extra-put-time-in-your-styling-options styles. What’s up?” I answered, “Awe I love you too…but say hello to your son…” Now I know that’s a cop out answer and I know it was not ideal to put the blame on my little one, but I didn’t want to say, “I’m too busy and I just don’t have the time” to my husband.

But it’s so true, I’m so busy! I’m a full-time working employee, full-time mom, night-time blogger, church choir member, and community service volunteer. I also have to make sure I add my husband in my crazy world of busy body lady. So, when do I have time to do my hair? There’s just no place in my schedule, which makes me kinda sad.

I still want healthy hair and I am still striving to get to my waist length goal; I don’t want my hair to suffer from my busy life. So what can I do when I don’t have the time to do my hair? News flash: everyone has a few minutes out of their day to tend to their hair. If you want to rid yourself of your hair and Big Chop, that would be one less thing to worry about. But for those who want to keep their hair and continue to grow in a healthy way, here are some tips to help the busy people like myself.

1. Set a schedule around your life

If you are busy on the weekends, don’t plan to do your Wash Days on the weekends. Plan wash day on your light days when you tend to have time to yourself. If you are busy until you put your little ones to bed, plan to do your hair after their bed time. Instead of trying to put your entire hair regimen in your hair schedule – massage scalp with oil, pre-poo, shampoo, protein treatment, deep condition, air drying, leave-in moisturizer and sealing, styling.

Shave your regimen down to what can work for you – co wash, deep condition, leave-in moisturizer, style. Also, if you just don’t have the time to wash your hair, try using dry shampoo. It comes in a powder or spray form. Then you can use your leave-in moisturizer and style. Find a hair schedule that works for you.

That’s too much doings for your hair regimen.

I thought this article was helpful. I’m not a mom, but I am busy with so much in my life. I never thought about a microwave cap instead of my hooded dryer…makes perfect sense! I’ll try that. Thanks!

These are things I do in addition to wearing stylish wraps and hats.

My hair must be redone at least once a week. No style except braids lasted longer than a week. Relaxed or natural. It never happens. Now the soon as I’m off work for a couple of days put the deep conditioning treatment in, will work. I have high maintenance hair but low maintenance time. Doing things in stages and crock pot cooking keeps me sane.
