Tips On Maintaining Fuss-free Hair

Low Maintenance Hair For The Girl On The Go

Scrolling through Instagram with people posting selfies with the #IWokeUpLikeThis hashtag can be pretty annoying sometimes, especially when your hair looks a far cry from everyone’s posted pic. Undeniably, it can sometimes get quite frustrating to get your hair in check or to keep it on point without spending too much time on it. Spending time taming your hair can also keep you from working on perfecting that winged liner or those pouty lips. For girls who want to go to bed and truly wake up with a good hairdo, here are some tips for low maintenance hair that may be helpful for you. This salon software, is also a good hack for those who don’t have time to wait at salons.

Say No to Bangs 

We’ve been seeing a lot of airy Korean style bangs, but the truth is, it’s a no-go. While bangs may undeniably give you a soft and graceful look, they require high upkeep which also means you’d have to put in a lot of effort to make sure they look that good. Or else, you may just be wasting your time. Side bangs are a lot less difficult to upkeep as they grow out and blend into the other hairs. A useful tip is to damp your hair and part it to the sides, giving you a wavy and natural look at blends well along with your original hairdo.

Short is Not Always Easy

For most girls, having short hair also means having to regularly trim it for it to maintain its length. While pixie haircuts do save you styling time, you will undeniably have to schedule more salon visits. While ultimately it depends on what you want – having a truly low maintenance hair where you wouldn’t have to worry about going to the salon or to save on styling time and go to the salon more often. There certainly is a trade-off no matter which decision you take. Some women prefer to first cut a pixie, and then let it grow out. This could save you a couple of salon visits, but it is still necessary to visit the salon to make sure that your hair is kept kept and grows out nicely. 

Consider Your Texture

One of the most important things to consider when choosing a new hairstyle is the texture of your natural hair. You will need to be 100% transparent with both yourself and your stylist on how you maintain your hair and this will have a major impact on what style you should go along with. For example, some girls are not keen on spending too much time styling their hair. As such, girls with natural curls may then want to invest in a straightening treatment to reduce the time spent every day trying to straighten those curls. Having your curls straightened professionally can save you so much time on a daily basis as you wouldn’t have to worry one bit. On the other hand, if you have straight hair, you might want to consider getting a perm to give your hair a little more volume and style. Lastly, if you have layered curly hair, you might want to adopt a treatment that can keep the frizz away. 

Treat It Well

While you might think that your hair is technically dead, it does however, need to be treated with respect – just like every other part of your body. To do this, make sure you invest in a good shampoo and conditioner which can greatly impact the quality of your hair. This applies to both people with oily and non-oily hairs. Taking good care of your hair can prevent unnecessary breakage or split ends, which can really be annoying to pull apart. Ultimately, it doesn’t matter what kind of hair you have but what’s most important is that you have to apply a generous amount of heat protection to your hair before blow-drying, curling, or straightening. If you have a little more time, it is recommended that you also use a stronger formula that requires you to leave in your hair. 

Skip the Heat Styling

Seeing how those Instagram girls change their hairstyles as and when they like can be mind-boggling to us and we might be convinced to get one straightener or curler for ourselves. But, using heat tools on your hair can be extremely damaging, and we recommend trying your best to leave it au naturel. Air drying your hair is not supposed to leave it messy and matty, and if so, it means you’re probably doing it wrong. One pro tip – when your hair is damp, apply a layer of detangling lotion which helps to untie the little knots that are in your hair and brush them through gently. To achieve shiny, natural-looking waves, part your hair into two and twist it while it dries. Alternatively, you can choose to braid your hair overnight, leaving you with natural-looking curls when you wake up the next day. 

Try Ombre

Having colored hair can really be the bane of your existence when you need to constantly retouch your roots. If you’re willing, try ombre hairstyles. This allows your hair to grow out seamlessly without you having to constantly retouch your roots. With the ombre coloring, it will start from mid-length rather than from the roots, this allows the hairdresser to already paint out a gradual fade rather than an awkward fade if you let it grow out from the roots. Ombre style is rather popular among millennials these days, especially on Tumblr pages where people flaunt their hairstyles. It’s pretty, fuss-free, and unique! 


Having different hairstyles can get rather annoying if you have to constantly upkeep. What’s worse is that if you’re a working professional and you have to make sure you look good and presentable before meeting your colleagues. We hope this guide taught you how to have low maintenance hair, try it out, and don’t be afraid of styling it however you’d like!
