I’ve been there… Your warm bed sucks you in and the last thing you want to do is get up. You have snoozed all 6 of your alarms and nothing will get you out of your bed. After 30 minutes you now have no choice, it’s time to get up. In a panic, you try to figure out what to wear and how you’re going to look like you DIDN’T just wake up! Girl, here are 3 simple ways you can up your ponytail game.
Wash your hair
I know what you’re thinking, this girl knows I don’t have time and I still have to wash my hair?! Yes, that’s right, but we’re washing our hair with dry shampoo today!
This is an essential first step for the perfect ponytail. The dry shampoo soaks up the oils in dirty hair while giving volume! This volume gives the illusion that we tried really hard, even though we didn’t! 😉 Apply your dry shampoo only to the roots because when you apply it to the ends of your hair they can begin to look dull and lifeless.
When you use your dry shampoo try flipping your head upside down. This will ensure a
Keep your chin up
Have you ever heard of a power pose? Posing like a superhero with your chin up and chest out for a few minutes a day will actually boost your confidence level and decreases stress! So
A huge struggle of mine is the saggy ponytail! Who else has been there? Lol. As the day goes on, all of your hair falls out at the base of your neck and you look like a hot mess by 12 pm. This pose will help you feel confident and your hair will stay in place all day.
When grabbing your hair for your ponytail LOOK UP! Keep your chin up and tell yourself you love yourself and secure your ponytail without ever dropping your chin. You will never have a saggy ponytail ever again and all that hair at the base of your neck will stay nice and tight all day!
Brush your teeth… I mean Hair?
Grab your toothbrush! Random I know. How many times have you gone into battle with your flyways around your hairline and part line?! Everyday, huh? This is the easiest way to get rid of these guys without having super crunchy hair from hairspray! Without flyaways holding you back, you will look put together and ready to take on the world.
Get a new toothbrush you have never used on your actual teeth before and spray hairspray directly onto the bristles! Gently brush stray hairs back with the toothbrush before the hairspray dries and Ta-da! NO MORE STRAY HAIRS!
