Postpartum haircare for busy mums

Being a mum, not so surprisingly is a very busy job. When you are a mum and taking care of an infant, everything gets reduced to essentials and it is important to prioritize your time rather well. So here, I have put together a quick hair care routine that will keep your hair’s health intact whilst saving you some precious mommy minutes so that you can concentrate on really important things like peeing in silence ;). Of course, this is not just for mums but for all the beautiful busy ladies out there.


Day 1:

Day 1, I shampoo and condition my hair. I also apply a small bit of John Freida’s curling cream; I blow dry my hair in low settings to create waves. The main reason I blow dry is to instantly dry my hair; tying wet hair will only make it weak, brittle and frizzy. I have recently cut my hair short so it takes about 15 minutes.

Day 2:

Both water and excessive heat are the biggest enemies if you want good hair. So, for the second day, I use dry shampoo and Argan oil and give my roots a slight massage and style it as I wish. The whole thing takes five minutes.

Day 3:

Day three, I fashion a quick mommy knot a.k.a the messy top knot. I first apply a bit of Argan oil then simply take all my hair almost to my crown. I twist it into a bun and secure it with a band. To soften the look, I fluff my crown with my finger tips and take out some hair from front. This is another five minute hairstyle that’s high on style and easy to put together.

This quick three day routine is really helping me to take care of hair loss as it requires less water and heat.

    Hi you don’t look like a mum ‘coz you still look young. I love the last hairstyle and I guess being a mum, you also take a little bit of your time to wear a nice women clothing to match up with your look. XD

      Thank you Nicole. The last look is my favourite too. I just dress up for blog purposes but most days I am just a PJ girl with her mommy knot ๐Ÿ˜‰
