You may find you hair uncontrollable if you do not wash it every day, but it is better for hair health if you don’t. Doing so removes the natural oils that keep it healthy and can lead to frequent breakages and dull, dry hair. Changing habits is never easy and you may find that it will be more difficult to work with initially, but it’ll be better overall for it. If your concern is with greasy hair, we’ve an answer for that too- the second day blow-dry. With the second day blow-dry we’ll show you how to eliminate a greasy scalp, freshen hair for another day and help you achieve your desired style.
Firstly you need to tackle any excessive oil in your scalp and roots. You can do this by using a little bit of baby powder or preferably, dry shampoo. Start by spritzing the product into your parting and then gently, lightly, massage/ruffle the product in to allow it to hold on to any excess oil. After your parting, lift large sections of the hair and follow this process again; always working the product into your scalp/roots. You don’t need to cover your entire scalp but at least half a head should do the trick.
This step will also give you a base to help create more volume.
Spritz styling spray through the middle and ends of hair (spritz, don’t drench) – do not do this bit in sections of your hair will be unmanageable, this step will just help you to create a lasting style- like step 1, the style spray acts as a base to help you create volume, style and hold.
Grab a ceramic, barrel brush and use to lift the roots and use a warm setting on your dryer to create more volume and life- work the hair just like you would if you were blow drying it for a first time- see our blowdry guide for tips; setting your hair at home will also give great results.
If you feel like you need more lift/volume through the roots, lift sections of your hair around your parting and use thermal rollers to sit as close to the root as possible- you don’t need to roll the hair up into the roller but simply place the roller and it’ll stay in place. Blast with a heat setting on the dryer for a few minutes to allow it to take hold.
The combination of dry shampoo, styling spray and the ceramic brush will give your hair a texture that’ll hold your style.
When you’ve blowdried your hair, blast your do with the cold setting on the hair drier to set your hair.
Use your favourite hairspray for extra hold or style your hair however you desire.
