Waking up in the morning is tough enough, but waking up early and being in a rush can be a total disaster!  Between deciding what to wear and doing your makeup, there’s barely enough time to give your hair a little TLC.  Luckily, there is a way to pull off that crazy bed head you get from a long nights sleep.  In a few simple steps you can achieve the perfect messy hair…think of it as “un-styling” your hair.Chelsea Crockett- bed head hair

First and foremost, you have to embrace your natural hair texture.  By playing off your hairs natural waves or curls, you’ll be able to style your hair much faster and easier.  Start by brushing out tangles with a wide-toothed comb, NOT a hairbrush.  A comb will take out specific tangles, while a hair brush will get rid of your natural texture.  Next, run water through your fingers and add it to the pieces of hair that look the limpest.  This will add body to dull, lifeless strands.  Add dry shampoo to your roots for freshness and volume.  A little dry shampoo goes a long way for instant fullness.

It’s as simple as that, and no heat is required!  Embrace that perfectly beautiful and messy bed head!

You all know I love dry shampoo. I am pretty sure that it is one of the best inventions to hit the beauty market. It helps dry up the oils in your hair so that it doesn’t look greasy, and it can help your hair hold a tease! Dry shampoo can sometimes be expensive and can cause product buildup on your hair. I found a DIY recipe for dry shampoo and got so excited. You can make this stuff for less than 2$ a bottle! You cannot beat that!

Recipe for dark hair:

  • 1/4 cup Cornstarchtumblr_mljrehPMNC1qdwkufo1_1280
  • 1/4 cup Cocoa
  • 5-10 drops Essential Oil (e.g. Pink Grapefruit, Lavender, etc.)

Mix all of these ingredients together in a small bowl. My suggestion is that you put the ingredients into an old spice bottle because the spice bottles have holes in the lids so you can sprinkle the dry shampoo on your roots easier.

     Recipe for light hair:

  • 1/4 cup Cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup Baking Soda
  • 5-10 drops Essential Oil (e.g. Pink Grapefruit, Lavender, etc.)

Do the same exact steps as in the first recipe. You can use a makeup brush to apply the powder to your scalp as another application option.
