I'm too busy for pretty hair.

Dear Gabby-

I find the summer is the WORST for styling my hair. It’s hot, i’m constantly running around, and I just don’t have the time. What are some of the best ways to make sure I actually look decent when i’m leaving the house, yet don’t have to spend an hour just doing my hair in the morning?

Dear Always In A Hurry,

Summer is the perfect time to embrace your natural texture. Smooth hair is out and undone texture is in!

 Our favorite way to control and enhance natural texture is to cocktail a volumizing product with a curl enhancer and a strong hold liquid gel. After washing, start by drying your hair with a T-shirt instead of a towel. This will help reduce frizz. Then apply your products and don’t be shy with the volumizer and liquid gel.

More is more!

Then give your curls a kickstart by flipping your hair over and defusing with a basket diffuser. You don’t have to dry for a long time. Just get your curls started, hit it with some hairspray and let the rest air dry. Remember not to comb through your hair through out the day. If you want to break up crunchy product, do it by scrunching dry hair instead.

Our favorites for creating this look are Aveda Volumizing Tonic, Confixor Liquid Gel and Be Curly Enhancing Lotion.
