At Curl V, we understand the struggle of maintaining healthy hair when you’re always on the go. Whether you are the parent of a child with curly hair or you’re a student yourself, there are many quick and easy ways to style your hair while maintaining hair health. Now that school is officially in session, here are a few #curlvapproved tips to maintaining your hair’s health and vitality even on your busiest days.
Tip #1: Give protective styles a chance.
Whether it’s two strand twists, braids or a high bun, protective styles can be a lifesaver when preparing for those long school days. Hairstyles like the ones listed above can last for several days at a time with little to no extra maintenance. If you know you are going to be rushed for time, put your hair in a protective style the night before and leave it in for a couple of days. Not only will you find it easier to get out of the house (or dorm) in the morning, you’ll also find that it is a great way to retain length and prevent other damages to your hair like split ends and breakage.
Tip #2: Sleeping on a satin/ silk pillowcase
Sometimes, wrapping your hair up at night can be a big hassle after a long day of school and homework. On those days when you forget or are simply too tired to even look for a bonnet, a satin pillowcase can protect your hair at night even when you forget to. Bonnets and many head wraps are made with special material that allows the hair to slip between the fibers without snagging. Because these pillowcases are made of similar fibers, you don’t have to worry too much about having super dry, damaged hair in the morning.
Tip #3: Always carry an extra hair band and/or bobby pins.
Depending on how active you are during the day, sometimes a quick hair touch-up may be necessary. That’s why it’s always a good idea to have extra bobby pins or a hair band. Always carry these extra styling tools in your purse or bookbag, so that it is easily accessible should you need to change or adjust your hairstyle at some point during the school day.
