I’m gonna be really honest with you guys- I HATE doing my hair. HATE it. It’s naturally curly, and although many would “kill” for my hair type, I don’t like it one bit. I can’t just wake up in the morning most days and get it to look right without it taking up a good chunk of time. I’m on a schedule in the mornings – wake up, pump, shower (or not on some days), fix my hair quickly, pack my pump parts, lunch, and clothes for Addie, and run out the door. I always try to get to the NICU as early as possible, and that can be hard with my challenging hair. Lately I’ve been doing these 3 quick 5 minute hairstyles for the mom on the go so I look put together enough to talk to doctors all day, but I’m not in front of my mirror for an hour in the morning.
I went to Walgreens after being at the hospital the other week to grab my essentials (deodorant, toothpaste, etc) and saw that they have a Buy 1 Get 1 Free Goody TangleFix and Quikstyle hairbrush deal now until November 1st, 2014 (while supplies last) if you have a Walgreens Balance Rewards card. I snagged my brushes and wanted to try them out. The Quikstyle half round hairbrush has super absorbent microfiber bristles that work like a towel removing 30% of water, while the shape makes it the perfect blow-out brush. I initially use it out of the shower to detangle my hair and then let my hair air dry. Then, I use it to help style my quick 5 minute hairstyles.
The Goody Tanglefix that comes with the Quikstyle is my favorite brush for coming out of the shower because my curly hair gets so tangled. It has 3 different bristle lengths to get out tangles without ripping my hair and has easy grip sides so the brush isn’t coming out of my wet hands. Then I do a once over with my Quikstyle and I’m good to go!
The Fun Bun is my most commonly done hairstyle. If I wake up with frizzy hair all I have to do is use my Goody Quikstyle half round hairbrush to give a little volume on top, then I secure my hair into a ponytail. Then, I wrap my ponytail into a donut shape, and put another hair tie on top to hold all my loose hair. I don’t need bobby pins at all, and it stays ALL day.
The Simple Chignon is another favorite quick 5 minute hairstyle of mine because it reminds me of Izzie from Grey’s Anatomy. I twist the side of my hair into a low ponytail, and then pull my ponytail through the middle to create more of a twist. I then grab the ends of my hair in the ponytail and roll my hair up and pin with bobby pins in place. Then, I use my Goody Quikstyle to smooth out any frizzies to finish the job.
Lastly, the Twisted Pony is my other go-to quick 5 minute hairstyle. I twist the top and side of my hair, use my Goody Quikstyle brush to smooth my hair into a ponytail, and wrap a 1 inch section of hair around my hair tie and tuck the ends of that section back into my hair tie so it’s all secure.
The Goody Quikstyle is such a time-saver for me because it helps my hair dry as I brush, and the microfibers don’t make my hair frizz. I can spend 5 minutes (or less) on my hair and get to Addie in the NICU faster each morning. Our lives are crazy right now, and anything that makes my day go more smoothly I’m all for!
