3 hairstyles for greasy hair when you're feeling too lazy to shampoo
Hairstyles to save the day and embrace the stickiness
For the blessed few among us, second-day hair is when their mane looks its best. It’s somehow full of volume from tossing and turning in bed, got the perfect wave even though it has been in a top knot and flutters in the breeze. The rest of us unfortunate souls have a slick mess that threatens to rain on our parade. For those days we’ve had to be inventive with hairstyles for greasy hair to be socially presentable.
There’s only so much you can dry shampoo your hair before it freezes in place and starts looking like a helmet.
Whether your alarm didn’t go off in the morning, your friends made last-minute plans to have socially-distanced chai and samosa pav, or it’s too cold to shampoo your husky winter hair.
Unlike many of the online tutorials you’ve bookmarked for those SOS moments, these aren’t so complex that you’d need a professional to twist and turn your strands. These hairstyles for greasy hair that Apurva Chaudhari, the technical adviser from Schwarzkopf Professional, came up with are easy to follow and replicate at home.
All you need to ace these styles is a comb, some hair ties, a scarf and maybe a few bobby pins that your mum has stashed away in her dressing table drawer for safe-keeping.
Embrace the stickiness with a scarf head-wrap for a little ’80s throwback. You can do a double-twist ponytail if you’re feeling fancy or just hide it all away under a turban.
Let Chaudari be your guide as she shows us how to style our hair step-by-step. But remember you can’t use these as an excuse not to wash your hair and take care of your scalp’s health. Scalp care is the new self-care especially if you want locks that’ll put the shampoo ads to shame.
