Sometimes daily life can just get the better of you during the week but you really can’t let that affect you when you’ve got a ton of things to do. However, not everyone has the time or patience to deal with washing and styling their long locks every day, amiright? While it’s not about completely forgoing your haircare but we totally understand the need to get away with doing the bare minimum most days. Especially if you find the whole getting ready process annoying in the mornings. Well, until it’s acceptable to leave the house looking like a wild animal we’ve rounded up a few easy hair products and tools every lazy girl should have in her arsenal that makes life easier.

Keep scrolling to check out five simple lazy girl hair products that make all the difference:

1. Mould resistant shower cap

If you’re big on protective styles, and maintain your blowout or extending the life of your curls, a shower cap is an essential hair accessory. Even if you don’t fit into any of those categories and just want to keep your hair dry that day a shower cap is a must-have for those lazy days. Forget about flimsy plastic shower caps that lose their strength after each wash. Instead, invest in a cute reusable shower cap.

3. Wet brush

Usually, we advise against brushing the hair when wet but there are moments when it’s needed like layering products or when you’re short of time to style your hair. In that case, you need to use a brush specially made for wet hair so that you can gently get rid of all the tangles. A wet brush is specially made for that purpose for brushing through wet hair gently and without pulling, ripping, or snagging. It quickly untangles even the most intimidating knots with flexible bristles that don’t pull on the hair. So if you have a sensitive scalp, this is also a good everyday brush option.
