We know when you are fresh from the shower and running late, an extra five minutes primping can make or break your look. (NOTE: never resort to sticking your wet head out a taxi window for a fast dry – you might be mistaken for a dog and will definitely end up looking like a mangy mess.) When you find yourself short on time, follow our advice to go from wet to set in less than five minutes:
Lay the Ground Work: In the shower treat hair with a 100% natural and vegetarian products, like 100% Pure Honey Coconut Milk Shampoo + Conditioner ($8+ at 100percentpure.com)
Why We Love It: This super rich, moisturizing line deeply conditions, strengthens and nourishes hair without weighing it down.
Get Handy: After rinsing off, spritz clean hair with Ojon Damage Reverse™ Restorative Smoothing Glaze ($26 at Ojon.com), then comb your fingers through your tresses to spread the booster from the root to tip
Why We Love It: This product is infused with Ojon oil, macadamia oil, and Murumuru butter to quickly detangle and smooth each strand– and it smells delicious.
Curl it Girl: Simply part down the middle, then loosely twirl each half until the hair rolls into low twists below the ears, then target frizz-prone spots (temples / hairline) with John Frieda Frizz-Ease Hair Serum ($9 at Drugstore.com)
Why We Love It: Bye-bye fly-aways - this serum immediately smooths texture and delivers a layer of crystal-clear gloss for perfectly polished, frizz-resistant styles. (NOTE: a little goes a long way)
Don’t be Tardy for the Party: Now, get out the door! Let your Princess Leia locks air dry until you get to the party, then gently unwind and smooth with Bamboo Smooth Anti-Humidity Hair Spray ($18 at Sephora.com) - watch your tresses tumble into breezy, natural waves.
