We always hear about back to school shopping lists, back to school fashion, and back to school technology tips. But what about back to school beauty tips? After a carefree summer of traveling and spending lots of time outdoors and in the sun, our hair and skin could use some pampering before the chaos of work and school starts back up. Here are a few tried and true beauty tips to get you ready to head back to school.
Cut Off Split Ends – Sometimes you don’t need a whole new hair style before you head back to school. What can make a big difference, though, is popping into your salon for a quick trim to get rid of dead ends. Dead ends can make your hair look messy and unkempt, and they aren’t good for keeping your hair healthy.
Stock Up on Supplies – We all have those days when your hair won’t cooperate and you need to throw it up in a ponytail or keep it in place with an army of bobby pins.
Prepare for Lazy Mornings – There’s nothing worse than waking up late and realizing you don’t have time to wash your hair. These are the days that dry shampoo and other styling products were made for. Pick up some dry shampoo (find a list here) or hair fragrance so that you’re prepared when those rushed mornings roll around.
Deep Condition Hair – Summer can cause a lot of damage to hair and follicles, especially in areas of extreme dry heat. Prep your hair for Fall by applying a deep conditioner to it and leaving it in for 15-30 minutes. This will replenish moisture and leave your hair in great shape.
