A Hair Routine and How To Create a Sexy Ponytail

I’ve mentioned before that I struggle with my sometimes impossible thick, wavy hair (you would think that with my ridiculous hair my babies would have a lot of hair, too…but no). More days than not, my thick mop of hair ends up in a pony tail or messy bun before I’ve even finished my morning coffee and it’s just a reality I’ve come to accept. But I’ve been making a little bit more of an effort with my hair this year, and my current routine is working pretty well for me. I only wash my hair every 3 – 4 days to keep it from drying out too much. On Day 1 I dry my hair straight and can usually get two days out of this – even with a decent workout, I can generally spritz my roots and blow them dry and get a second day out of my straight hair. On Day 3, I pull the top of my hair back, and on Day 4 – it’s a ponytail. But just because I throw my hair back in a ponytail doesn’t mean it can’t be a cute ponytail, right?

I love this video from Oil of Olay on creating a sexy ponytail. A little texture gives a ponytail a lot more interest than, to quote the Oil of Olay stylist, “A Cheerleader ponytail” which I’m frequently guilty of sporting. Do you have a hair “routine”, or do you like to try new things with your hair all the time?

Sweeps Rules (3/27-4/2): http://www.blogher.com/hair-sweepstakes-official-rules-week-2


  1. My hair is super-thick and difficult, too, so I also have a hair routine. I wash it in the morning of Day 1, let it air-dry all day, and then spend 30 minutes with my ceramic curling iron at night to neaten up the curl. Then I’m good to go for 5, sometimes 6, days! Friends with thin hair get freaked out by this, because they’re so used to washing their hair once or twice a day, but it’s the only benefit to having really thick hair 🙂

  2. i’m jealous – i would love to go without washing my hair everyday, but it’s just not possible. so it gets the half-wet mom knot every day. blah!
