There are so many reasons your long hair will become dry and frizzy after just a few hours in the office. Could be that you wash your hair too frequently, or you apply way too many chemicals for a natural hair. You might be looking all shiny and smooth in the morning only for things to turn ugly in the afternoon. In my opinion, this is even worse than a bad hair day. It catches you off guard even after taking all the time to groom your hair in the morning.
You could be having an important meeting in the afternoon and you have exhausted all the tricks in the book. You shouldn’t give up yet. It’s at times like these that you need to hit up a local hair salon on your lunch hour to get your groove back. In case you didn’t know, there are several hairstyles that you can get done in under an hour in a local salon.
Here are a few ideas that might interest you:
1. Fine Wash and Extensive Conditioning
If you wear your hair long and loose, you should know that it will definitely dry quickly. The air conditioning system at the office only makes the situation worse. However, with fine wash and extensive conditioning during lunch hour you can give your hair smooth glossy look. You can even add a few curls with a curling iron. A good shine spray should give your hair a fresh healthy feel.
2. Deep Treatment Blow Dryer Trick
You will need to wash your hair lightly first, then apply deep treatment. Wait a few minutes then apply moderate heat with a blow dryer. Finally wash off the treatment and leave your hair to dry. You will end up with beautiful curls and waves. Do not use a brush as it will straighten the curls. A good shiny spray should give you a perfect finish. Here is how you can do it.
3. Shampoo Blow Dryer Only
Use a good shampoo to clean your hair. Blow dry your hair deeply to loosen all the tangles. You will end up with shiny smooth hair that can last till late in the evening. You can add a little twist by using hot rollers at the ends. This should leave you with nice and gentle curls.
These are last minute solutions to your hair problems that can easily be solved over lunch time. They are pretty easy and it should take the saloonist less than an hour. You can even grab a snack thereafter.
