Have you had a moment when you come home from work looking like this?

We got it: you are oh-so tired, the day was so hard, and the single thing you are dreaming about is getting into bed and falling fast asleep until the next morning, right? Well, almost all of us have been in a situation like this. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. We understand you.

However, probably, it’s the dreaded Tuesday, and the hair that you washed on Sunday afternoon is already screaming for another wash. But wait…How you are going to wash it if you’re collapsed from tiredness right next to your front door…No, we’re not here to tell you to be strong and get your ass in the shower. Instead, we have 5 tips that will help you look great the next morning without washing your hair.

1. PUT IT IN A PONYTAIL OR BUN

Don’t worry if your hair starts to look a little funky one day after washing it. Basically, you should try not to wash it every day. It’s bad for your scalp and for the health of your hair in general. So if your ‘2nd day’ hair is looking a bit greasy, try putting it in a pony tail. It will help you to hide all the dirt and grim and keep you looking neat and tidy. If you are more fan of the bun, these do the same job!

2. WASH YOUR FRINGE

This is one of the best pieces of advice we can give you! If you have a fringe, you can just wash it next morning, dry it and WOW! Looks like you’ve got freshly washed hair again! You can enhance waves with some product and let your hair flow free. No one will notice that its greasy because the fringe is perfectly clean. Everyone will notice your new hairstyle and nothing more.

4. USE A DRY SHAMPOO

No, this isn’t an ad, this is the superhero that will transform your unwashed hair! Apply a bit of dry shampoo before going to sleep and during the night it will absorb all the dirt in your hair. Trust us, it will look fresher next day and moreover you will have an extra bit of volume.

5. ACCESSORIZE, DAHLING

Try decorating your hair with different accessories that will hide all the greasy bits: it can be hairpins, scarves, hairbands – whatever you want that can help you to hide the dirt.

6. MAKEUP AND BOLD EARRINGS 

By the way, if you aren’t a fan of decorating your hair, you can try diverting attention from your hair to another detail. Make a super simple ponytail or bun, and put on bright makeup. Be careful, if you are going to work try focusing on only one part: put on some striking eye makeup, for example, and pencil in your eyebrows.  If you prefer simple makeup we advise you to pencil in your brows, apply foundation and put on a bold earring. Everyone will be looking at your eyes and statement earrings because they will light up the room. No one will notice your greasy hair!
