How to make day 5 hair look good..

Hello everyone!

Today's post is going to be explaining how I make day 5 hair not just look acceptable but night out kinda acceptable.

I don't like to wash my hair more than once a week. (I'll just give you a moment to pick your jaw up off the floor) Truth is, my hair doesn't really get greasy quickly, I don't know why but even when it feels greasy it doesn't really looks greasy. 

Anyway, my friend and I were going on a last minute night out and I was on day 5 hair. Didn't really want to wash it because I knew I'd be washing it the day after and I'm just not up for washing it two days in a row. 

So here's how I made my day 5 hair look night out appropriate...

Please excuse me for not putting my face in the pics. I had no makeup on and, really, nobody wants to see that haha.

So the above picture is the 'before'. This is the remainder of the curls put in for my graduation last Thursday.

The first thing I did was separate my fringe and put the rest back in a bun. 

Then I washed just the fringe. It took about 5 minutes to wash and dry just my fringe whereas it can take me about an hour and a half to wash, dry and straighten my whole head of hair. So maybe now you know why I don't wash it regularly. Too. Much. Effort.

Anyway, I think that if the front of your hair looks good then it lifts the rest too. 

As you can see, we're already looking better!

The next thing I did was spritz some dry shampoo on my roots and brush my hair out. 

You could just leave it there if you wanted to, but as I was going out I gave my hair a blast with the hairdryer to give it some volume and added some curls with a big round brush. 

The whole process took about half an hour. But if you don't do the last bit it would take probably less than 10 minutes. 

And that's it! That's how I make day 5 hair look good :D 

Hope this was helpful!
