From a heavy course load at college to raising small children or caring for aging parents, it can be difficult to find time for yourself. Despite this, it is crucial to practice self-care. Whether this means relaxing in the bath at night, getting pampered at a salon in Davie, or simply taking a nap, we understand how tough it is to find the time to do these activities. Unfortunately, we can’t add more hours into the day; however, we can help you cut down on the time you spend on your hair each day to free up a few minutes to kick back with a cup of coffee or to read that new book you’ve been meaning to start. Learn how to simplify your hair care routine:
1. Cut Down on Washing and Shampooing
One of the biggest hair care mistakes that people make is overwashing their hair. Some people believe that it is best to wash their hair with shampoo on a daily basis. Unfortunately, this is not the case and can lead to a host of problems for your locks. This is because the shampoo washes away the natural oils in your hair that help your hair retain moisture and strength. Instead, you are left with a dry scalp and hair that is prone to breakage. Likewise, you waste a lot of time shampooing, conditioning, and drying your hair on a daily basis. By skipping this step and instead only washing a few times a week, you can use this time to kick back and relax.
2.Skip the Heated Styling Tools
Curling your hair with a curling iron or straightening it with a straightener is a bad habit that many people rely on. The process typically begins with using a hair dryer and then other styling tools are incorporated. This is immensely damaging to your hair, especially when it is part of a daily routine. Your hair will suffer from split ends and dryness and may have a lackluster appearance. When it comes to the time it takes to style the hair with these tools, it can become quite time-consuming. Even those who are experienced with these tools can spend up to an hour each day using them. Eliminate the lengthy process (and the damage) by trying overnight hairstyles. Simply braid the hair before bed to create waves or wrap the hair into small buns for curls. This only takes a few minutes and the results last all day long.
3. Get a Haircut
One of the biggest reasons that people feel as if they spend too much time on their hair is that they simply need a haircut. In Davie, we see clients who spend a lot of time styling their hair or using treatments to conquer split ends or grown-out layers. Instead, most of these issues could be remedied with a quick trim or haircut. Additionally, opting for a shorter haircut in Davie may cut down on a lot of time as well. Some of our favorite low-maintenance looks include the classic pixie cut, a powerful bob or a simple shoulder length crop.
