Curly Hair Tips for Busy Moms

For seven years now, I have been rushing to get ready for the day. My first born was a very needy baby so I took showers and got ready for the day as fast as I possibly could. There were some days it was so crazy that I actually waited for my husband to come home from work to get ready.

I have naturally curly hair (it was wavy before having children, now it’s CURLY!) and on days when I don’t have the time to use a blow dryer with an infuser, I have some simple tricks that I’d like to share:

  1. Don’t use too much shampoo.
  2. Let the conditioner sit in your hair for a minute before rinsing out and rinse it just until the conditioner is gone, your hair may still feel slightly “slimy” – that is ok.
  3. Hang your head upside down and towel “scrunch” your hair dry until your hair is no longer dripping.
  4. If you are using multiple products (ghd has a variety of hair products to check out!), work each one in individually.
  5. I like to use a curling product along with a gel.
  6. Hang your head upside down and use hair spray.

Throughout the day, if you hair needs a “pick me up”, simply hang your head upside down, wet your hands with water and scrunch your curls again! Voila – instant hair style!

That is all! From the time I step out of the shower to the time that my hair is ready, only 3-5 minutes has passed by! Easy Peasy!

    My hair has a natural wave since moving to Toronto(must be the water and humidity)
    So post partum my hair went super straight. My son sucked everything out of me I guess, LOL!
    2 1/2 years later only now is my hair coming back to the natural wave it had!

    My daughters are all bi racial and have a range of curly hair. The less we touched it with a brush the better. They never rinsed out conditioner, ever ever lol We also would put conditioner onto their dry hair.
