Women who work look for ways to save time – and even five extra minutes in the morning can truly make your day better. In other words, they can make or break the day. Hence, these tips are here to help you do just that – save time on a busy Monday morning:

 Wash your hair the night before


Chances are, you prefer to wash your hair at least twice a week. But – and this is true especially for people with long hair – washing your hair is often a very tedious task. A lot of steps are involved, and drying them sufficiently enough takes a lot of time. It is not very comfortable to enter public transport or your office with wet hair. For that reason, you can choose to wash your hair around an hour before you go to sleep. That way, your hair will dry up sufficiently before you head to bed too.

Use coconut oil before washing hair

Coconut oil is truly a miracle. It has so many wide-ranging benefits and uses. And one of them is that it really helps in taking out all of the grime and oil from your hair. If your hair has been feeling icky or uncomfortable lately, all you have to do is put on a little all over your hair. Massage the oil into each strand and hair end. Keep it like that for an hour or so. When you wash your hair after that time period, make sure you apply the shampoo or conditioner in a slightly larger amount. When you finally dry your hair, you will notice the difference immediately.

 The trifecta of great hairstyles

A lot of times, you do not have enough time in the morning to tend to your hair. And if you spend more than five minutes trying out all the different hairstyles under the sun, you are bound to get late. But here’s the good news – there are three easy to use and maintain hairstyles that never go out of style.

The bun, ponytail, and braid. You can choose one according to your style and outfit. But whatever you choose to go with, it will look effortless and save you loads of time as well.

For bad hair days

We all have days when our hair refuses to sit. Or for some, it keeps bouncing and is all frizzy. It can get quite irritating as you try each and every method but the hair refuses to obey – all the while as time runs out. On such tense mornings, blow-drying really helps. Just blow-dry your hair from the roots properly. After you do that, tie up your hair in a bun and leave for work.

And if you do not have time for even that, just don a cute hat or another hair accessory to cover up your hair.

The magic of dry shampoos

Dry shampoo is a miracle that had surprisingly not caught on yet. Find dry shampoo in the fragrance profile that you like from your nearest supermarket. In the mornings when you are too tired to take a full bath or if your hair looks way too greasy, you can use this product. Just apply it on your scalp properly. After that, use a slightly damp towel and wash it all off. You will notice the instant freshness, fragrance, and lightness in your hair. Trust us, this product is a lifesaver!

Leave-in conditioners are a thing!

This is another lifesaving product that we are surprised not many people know of. Normal conditioners need to be applied after the shampoo, left on for at least ten minutes, and then washed away.

When you do wash your hair in the morning before work, you know all too well how precious those ten minutes are. You can get your shirt ironed, pack your lunch, feed the cat – but instead, you are stuck with dripping wet hair inside the washroom as the clock ticks by. With a leave-in conditioner, you can just step out after shampooing, apply it, and go about the rest of your chores and tasks.

So, make use of these tips and products to increase your efficiency in the morning.
