Second-day hair got you down? If you haven’t already heard the news, it’s all about not washing your hair every day anymore. While we were all taught growing up that we need to wash our hair daily, experts have found that doing so is actually damaging to your hair. Enter in: second-day hair. Many women tend to be a bit afraid of not washing their hair daily in fear that second-day hair just won’t look so great. Many hair experts suggest that you can create some of the best hair styles with second-day hair. To give you an idea, we’re sharing some of our favorite hairstyles that look great on second-day hair.
Braided hair styles are all the rage right now, they’ve been on the up and up in the trend department for the past year and they’re definitely having a huge moment. We’re not super surprised at the popularity of braids, because they have a way of being so gorgeous. The truth is, when creating a pigtail braided hair style many experts suggest that it’s even better to do so on second day hair. When our hair is freshly washed and clean it tends to be much more slippery and harder to keep in place. While on the flip side when you’re on second day hair, you have a bit more texture to your hair allowing you to style your hair in braids much more easily. Not to mention, braids can be a great way to hide any oil production you may be having in your hair and work with it!
Low Bun Style
You get the idea: second-day hair has more texture to it. So that low bun hair style you admire so often but can’t seem to create? Try it with second-day hair! Tease your hair at the top to create a bit more volume, using a bit of dry shampoo along the way. Clip a portion of the hair back with some bobby pins to hold the height and pull the rest back into a bun style. Easy, but super chic!
Half Up TopKnot
Half up hair styles are great regardless of what day your hair is on after being washed. Lately, there’s been an influx of half up top knot hair styles making way. If you’ve tried it yourself you may have noticed it was hard to get that real texturized look that looks so great with this hair style. This is another hair style that actually tends to look even better on second-day hair. When your hair has a bit of natural texture you’re able to create that more effortless, imperfect look that really brings this hair style together. Additionally, second-day hair tends to give a better look to the top knot portion of the look. Not to mention, it’s super easy to create. All you have to do is pull your hair back in a half up section and create a top knot with the hair that you’ve pulled back.
