Add a hidden butterfly clip for a fuller ponytail
How do you get a fuller-looking ponytail without the work? If you're out of bobby pins, a hidden butterfly clip will also do the trick. Tuck the clip underneath the ponytail so it's out of sight.
Use a hands-free dryer
When time is of the essence and you need fast help for your tresses, try this hands-free dryer. This device can also be used as a regular blow-dryer as well and dries hair faster than a normal one.
Put in spin pins to hold up buns
Have you heard of spiral spin pins? They're easier to use than bobby pins for keeping hair in a bun, whether you have thick or thin hair.
Dry shampoo before bed
Greasy locks are a downer for anyone, so do yourself a favor and shoot some dry shampoo over your mane before you catch some zzz's. This allows the shampoo to work its magic as you sleep, soaking up any oils overnight so you wake up with fresh hair that's ready to go. It's like hair voodoo! ​
