The Best Hair Products For When You're Too Lazy To Blow-Dry

Other than the fact that they are legitimate excuses to have your hair look terrible, heat and humidity are high-key life ruiners when it comes to your appearance. Blow drying your hair is the second worst activity with “blow” in the name that you’ll ever have to do, and it’s especially brutal in the summer. I’m sorry, but my 21st century attention span just cannot handle sitting still for 30 minutes unable to listen to music because a loud ass heat machine is blowing my hair beautiful. I just can’t do it. Luckily, there is a way to get away with leaving home with wet hair in the morning, and it’s called having the right products. Just make sure you leave early enough to stop at Starbs or something on the way to work so you don’t show up with dripping wet hair and an “I literally just rolled out of bed” attitude. These sprays, oils and hair masks will leave you with naturally beach looking hair without needed to use any heat tools.

Ouai Wave Spray

Jen Atkin, aka the HBIC responsible for the Kardashian hairstyles you screenshot to show your stylist, created the Ouai line to trick average betches into thinking they can have celeb hair, too. You’ll probably never come close to the perfection level of the locks of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, but for $26, you can at least try. The wave spray works for all hair types and smells sooo delushious *Chrissy Teigen voice.*

Bumble and Bumble BB Curl Defining Cream

If I was going to be stranded on a deserted island and could only bring one hair product, I’d take this. I understand that’s a bullshit scenario because nobody plans to be stranded on a island and I will never understand why we’re all so obsessed with asking each other what we’d take to be stranded on a fucking island, but you get my point. This cream is amazing. Besides creating really nice curls, it has UV filters to protect your hair from the sun and really helps the fact that once it’s hotter than 70 degrees, your hair wants to become a giant frizzball. Quick little tip, though: make sure to use a small amount. The first time I used this, I globbed a ton in my hair and it was a little too reminiscent of the crunched hair look from middle school for my taste. Less is more, betches.

Devacurl Melt Into Moisture Matcha Butter Conditioning Mask

This hair mask is perfect for all of you granola betches who are crunchy AF but don’t want your curls to be. You probably already spent most of your money on matcha (that guy who said we aren’t buying houses and diamonds because of avocado toast obviously doesn’t know the cost of a green tea latte addiction), so why not let the obsession spread to every other corner of your life? This hair mask is vegan and gluten free, which I’m sure your roommate will be thrilled to hear you talk about for hours on end.

LUSH Sea Spray Hair Mist

Speaking of natural, vegan stuff, Lush’s sea spray hair mist is basically like taking a dip in the ocean. Except, you’re probably in a tiny bathroom in New York City instead of frolicking around some exotic island. On the plus side, it definitely smells better than actual nature does, so technically you’re the true winner here.

Moroccanoil Frizz Control

Okay not to be gross, but as I’m typing this I’m literally leaving Moroccan oil fingerprints all over my keyboard because a) my life is a mess and b) I’m obsessed with putting this shit in my hair. If you’ve never tried Moroccanoil products before, you’re probably like, an alien or something because any betch who has ever received a free sample bag from Sephora or a Birchbox subscription has had at least a packet of this in her possession at some point. Even though it’s kiiind of basic, it really works.
