I love a good hair day as much as the next woman. Realistically I don’t have much time to spend getting ready every morning. I want my hair to look good every single day but I know it doesn’t. Sometimes I’m just too attached to my mom bun. It’s quick and easy. Over the years I’ve learned a few tips and tricks to having consistently good hair days. The secret isn’t spending hours every morning on your hair, it’s finding a good routine and sticking to it.
My Top Secrets For Good Hair Days
1. Narrow down a few easy go-to hairstyles.
Easy go-to hairstyles are essentials to good hair days. How many times have you gotten ready in the morning and had no idea what to do with your hair? That was me literally every single morning. I got tired of the messy mom bun and decided to figure out a few easy to maintain hairstyles that worked for me. When you’re picking your hairstyles, be realistic. Think about whether or not you like to wear your hair up or down. You want to pick styles that you don’t have to fuss with throughout the day. Playing with your hair constantly can do more damage than good.
2. Don’t use too much heat
Too much heat can damage your hair. Heat can cause damage and breakage.Skip the blow dryer, flat irons, and curling irons. If you’re wanting to use one of these tools, opt for tools with ceramic or tourmaline plates/barrels and use lower settings. These surfaces will reduce the damage to your hair. If you’re wanting to add some curls to your hair, try heatless curls instead. You can use rollers in your hair the night before for a cute curly style.
3. Use the right products for your hair
Taking the time to learn about your hair type is so important. If you decide to use heat, knowing your hair type will help you to find out what temperature setting is best for your hair.Good hair days depend on the right products for your hair. Different products achieve different results. Learn which products are best for the results that you’re trying to achieve. With this Florida heat, it’s a struggle to find products that can keep my hair tamed. My new recent favorite is an absolute game changer!
I’m a huge fan of clarifying shampoo and volumizing conditioner. Pantene Charcoal Collection shampoo and conditioner is exactly that! Their shampoos and conditioners contain Pro-V nutrient blends to improve hair’s health from the inside out. Have you ever gone days without washing your hair and had loads of build up?

Pantene’s Charcoal Collection Shampoo is free of silicone, parabens and dyes. It uses activated charcoal to cleanse the hair and scalp to help remove dirt and impurities. The purifying shampoo is nutrient-infused with a Pro-V blend of activated Charcoal, pro-vitamin B5 and antioxidants. I can’t tell you how much I love this shampoo.
The lather is so thick and my hair always feels clean without feeling dry after it’s washed. Pantene’s Charcoal Collection Conditioner is Pantene’s first ever silicone-free conditioner.

4. Sleep with silk
Making the switch to a silk pillowcase was one of the best decisions I could’ve made for my hair. Honestly, it’s an all around game changer. Silk pillowcases can reduce bed head, frizz, and split ends.
5. Establish a routine
Sticking to a routine can making having good hair days easier to achieve. If you have a set schedule, it will allow you to get out the door quicker every morning. If you choose a set schedule for wash days, your hair will get used to your routine as well.
6. Eat a good diet
Believe it or not, your diet can impact the health of your hair as well. Drinking lots of water and taking vitamins can leave your hair feeling moisturized and shiny. Vitamins can help your hair grow and lead to all the good hair days.
7. Don’t skimp on the maintenance
Maintenance is essential to good hair days. Wash your hair when it starts to feel oily and weighed down. Leaving your hair dirty for too long can lead to more damage. I love to deep condition my hair every two weeks. It adds moisture to my hair and helps to prevent breakage. As much as trimming your hair scares you, I like to do it at least once a month. Trims help keep your hair healthy and promote healthy growth. If your hair breaks easily, consider doing a protein treatment or protein mask.
All in all if you’re looking to have good hair days consistency is key. Find a routine with products that work for you and try to stick to a scheduled routine. Practice your favorite hairstyles so you can style your hair quickly every morning without any frustration. I guarantee with the tips above you’ll master your routine in no time and have consistently good hair days.
