Retro Pompadour: This style is great if you would like to try something a little different in your hair. Simply do a loose twist to your hair in front and pin it back. Bring the hair from the other side across and pin as well. Afterwards, gather all of your hair to one side.
This will give your hair some volume in the front and you will also have all of your hair gathered to the side in one place. The pompadour is a retro look that has been a little overlooked, and it can bring a casual but cute look for an old wash and go.
Ninja Bun: This style is also great for ladies that have longer curly hair. All you need is a scrunchie. This is basically a high bun, however you won’t pull hair all the way through the scrunchie. Simply gather hair to the top of your head, and wrap it once very loosely.
This is a casual style for a quick trip outside or if you don’t want to really play with your hair. As you can see in the video, she uses a satin scrunchie, which is great because it won’t pull or tug hair and it won’t suck up moisture from hair like a normal scrunchie would.
All of these styles are an excellent way to revamp a wash and go, and stretch your hairstyle until your next wash day. Experimenting with these and other low manipulation styles will prevent you from constantly putting your hands in your hair, and as a result there will be less breakage, dryness and damage.
These styles all look great and take less that five minutes to complete daily and at night all you have to do is keep your hair in a pineapple, and cover with a satin scarf.
If your hair begins to look dry, then simply spritz with a spray bottle filled with water, leave in and your favorite oil to bring hair back to life. Save detangling for the next wash day and have a week’s worth of not worrying about your hair!
What are your favorite ways to spruce up an old wash and go?
