1. Dirty hair is the new black. Wash your hair as infrequently as possible. Yep, I said it. Dirty hair is the way to go as a busy mom. In order to make this look work for you, you have to train your hair to go without washing. Before kids, I washed my hair every other day. On day two my hair was greasy and gross so I always washed it. Then, when I got pregnant with Hudson, I started stretching it out to every three days. And now that I have two kids it’s more like I wash it once every 5 days! But this takes time. Start slow by adding just one day. After two weeks try adding in another day. Your hair will adjust to less washings over time and it will actually be healthier! This tip saves me SO much time!
2. Rinse with apple cider vinegar. I know it sounds strange, but apple cider vinegar is the best (and cheapest) way to clean out all the gunk that can build up in your hair. I typically fill an old water bottle with 1 cup of apple cider vinegar and the rest of it warm water. After shampooing my hair I’ll pour the mixture over my head and let it sit for about 5 minutes, then rinse it out. Be careful not to get it in your eyes. My hair feels so clean and healthy after doing this! I usually do this once or twice a month.
3. Cut down on blow drying time. Who has time to waste blow drying their hair? My hair is crazy thick and it could take me 20 minutes to dry it. No thanks! I usually let my hair air dry for a hour and then blow dry it smooth using these tips.
