Back to School - Hair Tips for Busy Mums on the go

With the new school term coming up, we’ll see images of all the glamorous celebrity mums styled to perfection as they head out on the school/nursery run, this can leave many women feeling the pressure to do the same. However, when your time is taken up by a young family, work and life in general, sometimes your hair is the last thing on your to-do list so we thought we would help with our top five time-saving tips for busy mummies.


‘Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.’ - Coco Chanel

Dry Shampoo to the rescue:

There is a reason why this product is a staple in any woman’s bathroom, dressing table, handbag or baby bag; it is the solution to all our unwashed hair dilemmas. Most people think it is enough to simply spray and leave it do its thing, however, this can make your hair look even limper and lifeless. Instead vigorously rub the dry shampoo into the roots, to activate the product and achieve a blow dry feel.


Mask the split ends:

Is your hair feeling a bit dry and in need of a trim, but you just don’t have time to go to the hairdressers? Postpone your next appointment with a bit of multitasking! Once you’ve had a (quick) shower and washed your hair, pop on a hair mask and tie your hair up in a bun. This will give you chance to run around the house, finishing off those little jobs before you have to rinse it off!


The Mum Bun:

Nevermind the man bun; it’s all about the mum bun! Let's face it, life is sometimes easier when your hair is off your face and out the way, and the best thing about this hairstyle is that the messier, the better. Twist your hair around itself before securing with an invisibobble which will keep kinks to a minimum.


Leave in Conditioner - your new hero product:

If you find that the days when you had time for a long lather, rinse repeat hair routine are gone, then a leave in conditioner is the way forward. It is your hair’s answer to moisturiser; protecting it from the elements while helping to tame that pesky frizz. Apply to the hair and blow dry as usual, if you have time but if not, air dry for that no fuss, frizz free look.


Low maintenance colour:

Do you shudder every time you look in the mirror and are faced with grown out roots that you simply don’t have time to fix now that life got a little more hectic? Well, why not opt for one of the more subtle colouring techniques such as ombre or balayage, which make it harder to determine whether you’ve gone a bit blonder, darker, warmer etc. Leaving you with root free hair that looks natural, leaving you every inch the yummy mummy.
