Bad hair days, just like bad skin days, instantly chisel away at your confidence and make you wish for Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak. But lank, lacklustre hair and greasy roots should no longer be a reason to hide away…
I’ve joined forces with French Pharmacy brand Klorane, to share the three simple hairstyles I turn to when I want to take an extra day between shampoos. And you only need one haircare product to achieve all three looks: Klorane’s beloved Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk…
I first discovered Klorane’s Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk a few years ago, after it was featured in US Vogue. And it’s been my favourite dry shampoo ever since!
Unlike other formulas, Klorane’s dry shampoo restores freshness without weighing your scalp down with a powdery residue. Klorane offer a vast selection of gentle and natural hair products, and the oat seeds used in their dry shampoo are harvested from their own fields. Oat milk has softening and protective qualities – which helps give dirty hair a fresh, light feel.
I have fine hair and an oily scalp, which isn’t a particularly desirable combination. But, despite this, I’m able to shampoo and condition every three days. On the second and third day I revive my hair with Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk, and turn to one of these failsafe second and third-day hairstyles…
Easy Hairstyles for Dirty Hair Days
Style #1: Half Up, Half Down
This hairstyle is pretty, feminine and so easy to achieve. Spritz Klorane’s Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk through your roots to restore freshness and add a little volume and body. Then take a 2-3 inch section of hair from each side of your face and pin in place at the back of your head. Accessorise with embellished hair clips.
Style #2: Statement Headband
This speedy style is perfect for days at the office! Extend the life of your blow dry by working Klorane’s Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk through your hair. Leave the dry shampoo to settle in your hair for two minutes, gently brush through and then finish with a statement headband (Anthropologie have a great selection). You’ll instantly look polished and pull-together.
Style #3: High Ponytail
The high ponytail is the ultimate second or third-day hairstyle. To get extra height and bounce I give my roots a lift with Klorane’s Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk. Then I pull the top section of my hair into a mini, high pony and fasten with a hair tie. Once that ponytail is fixed in place I gather and smooth the rest of my hair and tie it together with the original high ponytail. If I’m feeling extra-fancy I’ll then loop a ribbon around the ponytail, for added pizzazz.
Purchase Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk at Boots, online beauty retailers and independent pharmacies. RRP £8 for 150ML.
