10 quick hairstyles for second-day hair
Pump It Up
When going a day (or two) without washing, dry shampoo is your BFF. Since hair flattens out when the scalp accumulates oil, you want product that boots volume (and eliminates oil). Apply the shampoo at the root and underneath the top layer of hair for equal volume throughout.
Braids are amazing at camouflaging dirty hair because they add texture. Quick hairstyles to try are the traditional braid or fishtail that hide limp strands by adding subtle body. The best braids are those that sit along the hairline, like the heidi braid or headband braid. The movement along the oily residue makes the hair look less greasy.
Sleek It Out
Take advantage of the natural oils in your hair by going sleek. Adding a small amount of gel or pomade to the roots and pulling it back into a sleek ponytail makes buildup look intentional.
Pull back dirty hair with a simple braid. To keep it from looking greasy, add dry shampoo to the roots.
Use dry shampoo or root lifting spray to pull up strands at the scalp for a voluminous side ponytail.
A fishtail adds unique texture. To keep it less structured, braid loosely at the nape of the neck.
