Easy, polished hairstyles for dry shampoo days

Easy, polished hairstyles for dry shampoo days

Whether you’re skipping the wet wash on purpose or because you just ran out of time, you still need to look polished, and your hair is a big part of that look. How do you learn the tricks models, celebrities, and social media influencers use to transform dirty hair into the best-looking hair ever? 

The tricks and best styles for dirty hair and dry shampoo days are all here.

Why "second day" and dry shampoo hairstyles work better

The natural oils in your hair hold onto moisture, and together, they form an excellent medium for sculpting and styling hair. The natural hold, volume, and depth come together to create the look you want. 

Adding dry shampoo to your hair can help revive it if you are looking at day three or four without a wash and your oil situation is a little out of control. It’s also a good way to add a fresh, clean scent. 

Dry shampoo also helps you create styles that stay and with more volume. It’s really true that day three hair with dry shampoo can become your favorite look of all.

Hairstyle ideas for your dry and dirty hair

Giving up morning shampoo rituals can free you up to create new hairstyles or do things you’d rather do, like spend more time with family or sleep in. These hairstyles will help you live the life you want and look amazing.

Modern chignon. The classic chignon hairstyle is perfect for special occasions, but turn it into a messy modern chignon, and you’ve got an everyday style you can wear. All chignons start with a twisted knot, typically at the base of your head. Work out a few strands or add a second knot at the crown, and you’re ready.

Long and tousled. Beachy waves meet bedhead for an inspired look that’s so effortless; it just drips icy-cool attitude. Spritz your hair with dry shampoo, then run your fingers through yesterday’s beachy waves to separate them, and let them fall as they want.

The scarf. Make the most of accessories when working your second-day hair, and let a scarf be a signature statement. A bold color or a vivid print—pick a scarf with something noteworthy, and use it to tie your hair back, tuck your hair, or weave it in and out of your locks as the third strand in a braid.

Bun style. There are so many bun styles to try: a coiled bun, a tall bun, multiple buns at once, ponytail bun, a knot bun, braided buns, space buns, and more. Play around and create your own bun to hide a little lingering grease or an unruly mess.

Tousled French Twist. The French twist is another classic hairstyle that’s incredibly glamorous. When your hair is dirty and full of dry shampoo texture, the French twist gets a little grungy and even more amazing.

Punk and sleek. Why fight nature? This style is great on short hair but can work with long locks as well. Simply comb back your hair and tuck it behind your ears for a sleek look that makes no apologies.

Hair La Vie Dry Shampoo 

Many second- and third-day hairstyles benefit from a little dry shampoo. Sometimes it’s not even to soak up the oil, but you want that extra grit, so your style stays and looks better than ever. 

Hair La Vie’s Dry Shampoo gives you that refreshed look and feeling and the texture you want, which all works to create effortlessly modern glam looks. But it does so much more. 

This proprietary blend of balanced plants and natural minerals was chosen for how it makes your hair look and how it revitalizes your hair, adding health and strength to it with every use. Simple, natural, and healthy ingredients come together to boost your hair health, so your shampoo-free days work extra hard at boosting life into your locks.

Final thoughts

Embrace your dirty hair and love it for how it looks. Once you get used to working with hair that hasn’t been washed in a day or two, you’ll wonder why you ever went so long without trying it.

Dirty hairstyles are so much easier to create because your hair is more willing to play along. The natural oils in your hair make it easier to sculpt, and oily hair holds the curl and wave better. A little dirt added to that oil, and your hair is suddenly thicker, lusher, and it has the volume you’ve only dreamed of before.

Adding a dry shampoo, like the all-natural and powdered version by Hair La Vie, empowers you to do more with your hair. It fuels your hair with healthy ingredients that soak up excess oil and leave a fresh scent while making your hair easier to manage. It’s a great way to celebrate the natural look you were meant to have.
