Let’s face it, not all of us wake up in the morning feeling refreshed or ready to start the day. For those of us who are constantly in a hurry, neglecting our haircare can become increasingly common, especially during the months when we experience colder weather. Identifying the right routine and products to utilize when you’re in a pinch doesn’t have to be difficult. At Fabio Scalia Salon, our expert hairstylists have compiled some great tips to utilize when you’re crunched for time.
Don’t wash your hair every day!
We say this a lot, but it’s an important topic to stress. Washing your hair excessively can strip natural oils from your hair and cause a dry, itchy scalp. If you must wash your hair every day, use a small amount on the scalp or condition the ends of the hair and rinse out. This will help prevent your hair from looking dull and your scalp from becoming flaky and itchy. Moisturizing conditioner creams from Kerastase or Oribe are ideal products to use to prevent drying of the scalp and hair.
Use your fingers as a comb
Your hands can serve as a great tool when styling your hair, especially when you’re crunched for time in the morning. A good haircare tip, pull down your hair with your fingers in a fork shape while drying. Do this on various sections and use a large round brush to remove excess water. Additionally, using various products from Kerastase or Oribe can help quicken the drying process. An anti humidity spray from Oribe can serve as an important styling product to prevent frizziness, as well as serve as a light texturizer. For those with curly hair, use a mist spray and a curl cream activator to prevent frizziness and to add additional hydration to your hair. Avoid using alcoholic based hair sprays, as they dry out the hair and can cause damage to the hair follicle.
And one last haircare tip…
And lastly, our expert haircare stylists recommend brushing and blow-drying your hair with a round brush. Pre-dry your hair with a curling iron to warm up the hair, 5 to 6 sections at a time until it has shape. This is an effective way to style your hair in the morning when you’re crunched for time.
