Time Saving Hair Tips

Are you tired of spending hours on your curly hair routine?

If you’re looking for ways to cut down styling time without compromising on great curls, we’ve got you covered! Follow these time-saving tips to streamline your curly hair routine:

1. Clip & Wait

After rinsing your conditioner in the shower, put your soaking hair in a claw clip. Take this time to do other tasks like skincare, body moisturizer, or makeup. Let your hair sit wet in the clip for 15 to 45 minutes (avoid going too long). Keep a microfiber towel around your neck to catch any drippage.

2. Prep with Leave-in Conditioner

Once you’re ready to style, grab a lightweight leave-in conditioner, preferably in a spray form for easy distribution. Apply it to your damp hair and brush through for better product absorption.

3. Optimize Your Stylers

If you have healthy hair and dryness isn’t a concern, skip the creams and go straight to foam, gel, or mousse. Choose products that suit your hair texture and provide the desired hold.

4. Sectioning & Clumping

Section your hair into two parts, clipping away the top horseshoe section. Apply your chosen curl definers, ensuring even distribution with the ribbon curl technique for efficiency.

5. Efficient Application

Work through your hair in vertical sections, sandwiching the hair between your hand and the brush to create a ribbon effect. Continue with diagonal sections for the top layers, alternating from left to right for ease.

6. Mousse for Extra Hold

Scrunch in a mousse to enhance hold and definition. To reduce excess moisture, gently scrunch your hair with a damp microfiber towel.

7. Diffuse Like a Pro

Speed up drying time by using a diffuser. Hover around your roots for a few minutes while actively circulating the dryer, then focus on the mids and ends. Use high temperature and speed settings for maximum efficiency, and play some upbeat music to keep you moving.

8. Fluff the Roots

 Once your curls have set, fluff the roots by blowing cool air into them in circular motions. This helps to dry the scalp and enhance volume.

Remember, being time-efficient doesn’t mean rushing through your routine. By following these tips and optimizing each step, you can achieve beautiful, well-defined curls without spending hours in front of the mirror. Happy styling!
