How to Hide Dirty Hair with Ease

Summer is a busy time. You might be running from party to party, jumping in and out of the pool and not have a spare minute to wash your hair. Yet, you don’t want to look like a sloppy, greasy mess when you’re outside enjoying the nice weather or at work. Here are some tips on hiding dirty hair from the masses.

Invest in a few good headbands, hats and hair scarves. Your dirty hair will thank you. A simple ponytail or bun looks much more chic with a headband or scarf around your scalp. Hats are especially great if you’re spending a lot of time outdoors in the sun and will look cute AND hide any greasy locks.

Make oil work for you by having a slicked back look. Create a side part and tie back your hair with a low ponytail, bun or braid. Get rid of any flyaways with a little hairspray. Use cute hairbands or barrettes for a sleek look.

Try out a new trend and get a turban beanie. It looks trendier than a hat or scarf and can really brighten up your outfit.

If you have bangs, an old trick is to only shampoo your bangs to make the rest of your hair look clean and washed. All you have to do is a quick shampoo and rinse of your bangs over the sink or hop in the shower with the rest of your hair pinned back. You’ll look fresh as a daisy in no time.

Braids are also amazing at hiding dirty hair. Oil naturally keeps hair in place and tames frizz, so a crown or side braid looks great and stays put all day.

Also, try a side bun for a different look that will also stay put for longer because of the oil in your hair. Pin back with bobby pins and use hair spray if needed for a little extra hold. You’ll look chic and no one will notice that you need a good shampooing.

Don’t forget the best hair product: dry shampoo. When your hair is feeling greasy and you don’t have time to wash and style, use dry shampoo, let sit for a few minutes then rub into hair and brush through. It will help give your hair new life.
