5 Hair Hacks for Days You Don’t Have Time to Wash It

Yes, you really can still have a good hair day. 


It’s the number-one hair request we get from readers: Help me keep my style looking great on the days I don’t wash it! So we pulled in Marcus Francis, celebrity stylist for Suave Professionals, and he taught five real women the secret to long-term gorgeousness.

Make waves on fine hair


Her issue: “If I don’t do anything, it just goes limp,” says Adrienne Kaye, 44, of her fine, straight hair. “So I wash it every other day, and if I curl it, too, the whole process takes over an hour.”

Marcus says: “For fine hair, adding a bit of wave not only creates body, but heat sets hair in place, so you’ll get a little extra mileage out of your style. A volumizing spray helps too: I misted one all over Adrienne’s damp hair, then shook her hair with my fingers as I blow-dried, pulling up the roots for lift.” (Marcus used Suave Luxe Style Infusion Volumizing Weightless Blow Dry Spray, $4.99; we also love Phyto PhytoVolume Actif Volumizing Spray, $29.) “Once her hair was dry, I wrapped large sections around a one-inch curling iron. After the waves cooled, I brushed them and had Adrienne flip her head upside down, then sprayed dry shampoo all over the underside, which keeps hair from falling flat.”

Adrienne says: ”This look is so easy to do, and the volume holds for almost three

Help curls stay bouncy


Her issue: “I only wash my hair once or twice a week, but my routine—I finger-twist my damp curls—takes almost two hours,” says Kahshanna Evans, 41.

Marcus says: “First, mix a dollop of leave-in conditioner with a drop of gel.” (We like Matrix Total Results Curl Super Defrizzer Gel, $16.) “Spread the concoction through damp hair to add hold and nix frizz. Next, blow-dry for a few minutes with a diffuser, then let the rest dry naturally or just go to sleep with damp hair—it won’t mess up your curls! Once hair is dry, use either a ½- or ¼-inch curling iron on just the outer layer of your curls and also the face-framing ones. When they start to droop, shake your roots to make them springy again.”

Kahshanna says: ”My curls had a really full, defined look that lasted until I shampooed again. I loved how fun and fresh it was!”

Switch up a short ‘do


Her issue: “I live out in the country, so I usually just tousle my hair and go, but I still like it to look pretty,” says Rebecca Bratland, 56. “And because my hair is fine, I have to shampoo every other day. It loses volume so fast.”

Marcus says: “The less you fuss over short hair, the longer it’ll last—just change the part on day two or three. To start, I spritzed a lightweight texturizer throughout Rebecca’s just-washed hair.” (TryR+Co Rockaway Salt Spray, $25.) “Then I blow-dried it, using my hands to push it toward her face, to the left and then to the right, and to lift up the crown to add height. To finish, I misted it all with dry shampoo. Later on, if your hair falls flat, run a wide-tooth comb through to reactivate the product, then move your part to the opposite side and you’ll get back shape and fullness.”

Rebecca says: ”The dry shampoo gave me allover body, and moving my part helped me get an extra day out of my style.”
