Â Between the long nights, long hours and longer lags between salon visits, fixing your hair as a new mom can seem like a losing battle. Try skipping the busy work and styling your hair in 10 minutes or less with quick tips and easy products (based on your Beauty Momma personalityâ€¦)
* If Youâ€™re A Stay-At-Home-Momma: Although short hair may seem like the perfect hairstyle for busy moms (protecting you from tiny baby fingers, projectile spit-up and more)…Â it can look messy fast.Â Even thoughÂ you may not want to go as short as newly-cropped mother Solange Knowles, at top, keep your mane polished by massaging dry shampoo (like Salon Grafix Spray Powder Shampoo) or baby powder into your roots for volume, and adding a small amount of styling cream to smooth or texturize ends (try Alberto VO5 Extreme Style Reworkable Putty).
* If Youâ€™re A On-The-Go Momma: If you find yourself spending most of your days at the office (but don’t have time to primp in the morning), try making your hairstyle do the work for you.Â Consider having theÂ front pieces trimmed into shorter layers, andÂ create a chic, work-ready chignon (like almost momma, Sarah Michelle Gellar).Â Begin byÂ styling only the front sections of strands (use a heat protecting spray- like Aussie Sydney Smooth Heat Protector + Leave-In Conditioner- to keep from damaging hair) and sweep the rest into a low loop at the nape of the neck.
* If Youâ€™re Out-and-About Momma: If you are constantly on your feet during the day, the idea of spending hours blow-drying, defusingÂ and your ironing your hair are not an option. Work with your natural texture insteadÂ (like Angelina Jolie) by letting hair air dry in the morning,Â and using a frizz-fighting cream (like Pantene Pr-V Frizz Control Ultra Smoothing Balm) to keep flywaways at bay.
