2. Choose styles that works with your lifestyle
Find styles that are quick and easy for you to do. You can do buns, two strand twists, and other low manipulation styles. Try long term protective styles if you are just too busy on a daily basis. You can keep these styles from 8 to 10 weeks at a time. Just make sure to not forget about caring for your hair properly while in long term styles.
3. Tend to your hair in steps
You may just want that fab-glam perm rod set or get your hair flat ironed out. Don’t try to do the steps all in one day…lead up to that final look. Try pre-pooing the night before your wash day, which you can take the time to massage your scalp and give your hair the much needed TLC. The next day wash and deep condition your hair as needed. You can also air dry or blow dry your hair.
At night, twist your hair up for protections. Then the next day set your perm rod style or flat iron* your hair out. Yes, it took three days to get to the final style, but it is better than be pressed for time or rushing to get the process done. Doing your hair in steps will not overwhelm you or tire you out like doing your hair all in one day.
4. Make deep conditioning easier
Who has time to sit under a hooded dryer* for 30 minutes? Not me! Try a microwave cap for your deep conditioning* treatment. You can put your treatment in your hair and put your cap on. The cap will do its thing just like the hooded dryer*, but you can move around the house and get anything done. Once your treatment is up, wash your deep conditioning* treatment out and style. You can also use the steam from the shower to open up your hair cuticles to allow the treatment to deep condition your hair.
