Lazy Day Hair Essentials

Lazy Day Hair Essentials

I’m not good at doing hair. It’s just not my thing. Any time spent blow drying, curling or straightening is done under duress. And if I’m in a rush, my hair is the first thing to be sacrificed. A messy bun is a common occurrence. Because of this, I’m always on the hunt for lazy day hair products. Things which make my life easier. Hacks, tricks and products which will speed things up and make it less effort for me.

Last year I tried Kerastraight. A salon treatment which lasts for 4 months or so. Taming frizz, making hair less susceptible to humidity. And cutting blow drying time down considerably. I was totally converted.

Kerastraight seems to be super effective for my hair. So I’ve had it done three further times. And have to admit it makes life so much easier. My previously frizzy and colour / heat damaged hair looks miles better. All with minimal effort from me, win!

Finding a hairdresser I love has been a game changer too. I go every six weeks without fail and keep up trims / treatments. My hairdresser always knows about the latest treatments and techniques, which will suit my hair.


When I’m elbow deep in nappies and sleep deprived, I’ll have even less time to bother doing my hair. I felt like a change and so decided to get a fringe cut in. Allowing me to wear it up without it looking too harsh around my face. I’m enjoying my new hair cut and have been trailing some new products to go with it. Perfect for lazy hair days (and new Mums without live in glam squads).

Lush Dry Shampoo

I was recommended No Drought by a friend, who raved about it. It’s about a fiver, but a little goes a long way. So I’ve found it to be better value than other dry shampoo. I love that it’s a natural alternative to the typical aerosols. And it smells amazing!

The powder is oil absorbing, so it refreshes hair instantly and gives volume. The only negative is the colour, as it’s so white I need to add it slowly and really comb it in. To avoid turning my hair grey.

No Drought feels a lot less heavy and sticky in the hair. So it’s quickly become my go-to dry shampoo.

EVERPRO Beauty Zero Grey Root Makeup

My hair is naturally now a more mousy brown colour. So whilst my roots aren’t drastic, they are certainly noticeable. I was sent two products from the Zero Grey range to try. Both aimed at brunettes and covering up roots or grey hairs, in-between salon trips.

These have been a life saver for me, when having my Kerastraight treatment. Kerastraight strips colour from your hair, so I have the treatment first and follow up with a colour the next time. Zero Grey is fab for hiding the discolouration if I want to go out or make more of an effort with my hair.

Zero Grey

Zero Grey Magnetic Powder

The magnetic powder looks like an eyeshadow. And is put on using a cushion applicator. I love this powder for applying to the roots and anywhere near the scalp, as it’s more precise. This neat little console includes a mirror and the applicator, so is perfect for putting in your handbag.

Zero Grey

Zero Grey Temporary Root Concealer

The root concealer spray can be applied all over and combed in. Whilst this can also be used on the roots, I like using this in addition to the powder, to hide discolouration.

The Zero Grey range was sent to me for review. For more information, read my disclaimer. You can find similar products to Zero Grey in my directory.

What products do you turn to for lazy hair days?

  • Girrrrl, you’re always going to be the most glamorous mum. I’d love a Kerastraight treatment. I haven’t heard of Lush’s dry shampoo but need it! Shame it doesn’t come in brunette. As for Zero grey – what a clever product! Definitely telling my best friend about this.

    I tried Kerastraight too and it was the best thing I ever did!! On me, it lasted about 7-8 months which was incredible, my hairdresser told me that it will go up to 6 months but it lasted longer. I will definitely do it again, I am all for low maintenance especially in winter. You look amazing Amy xx


    • Amy

      Wow that’s amazing, mine seems to last longer than it should too! Thank you! X

  • My hair game is tragic – I have tried learning how to style it and discovered anythingbeyond a messy bun is beyond me!
    ou look amazing with dark, raven hair, I’d never have guessed it was coloured, especially as it looks so striking against your eyes xx

    • Amy

      It’s so not my thing either, I wish it was but I just can’t be arsed ever haha. Thank you! X

  • I love lush products yet never thought about getting their dry shampoo. It’s a shame about the white issue but i am intrigued to give it a go

    • Amy

      It’s worth checking out X

  • Your fringe looks so pretty! And your hair looks in great condition. I will definitely be trying some of these products, My hair is not in very good condition the past couple of weeks and needs some TLC. Have a lovely week. Gemma x

    • Amy

      Thanks Gemma! X

  • Helloooo Lush dry shampoo! I recently went hunting for some dry shampoo and oh my god… its expensive for a decent brand. I’m in to Lush for some of that instead next time

      Yeah it gets so expensive going through tin after tin, so I’m converted! X

  • Will definitely have to try out the dry shampoo from Lush, as I’ve been looking for a good one for a while so will have to give that one a go. Your hair looks in such good condition too! I’m very much like you, I prefer low maintenance hair, and struggle to keep mine silky and smooth as it’s wavy so I have to try and tame it when it gets frizzy, so these tips and recommendations are great, thank you! – Tasha

    • Amy

      Thank you Tasha! I’m so bad with my hair and have abused it over the years but it’s getting to a better state now thankfully X

  • I can so relate to this post. My hair is always the one sacrificed haha. I love your new haircut and I think it suits you so well! I have this dry-shampoo thing, which is actually 100% natural and made from bamboo, which I love. I feel like regular dry shampoos irritate my scalp, so I’m happy there are more natural options as well! I’ll try that LUSH dry shampoo next.

      Haha there’s no time for both! Thank you! Ooh that sounds awesome. Same here, I hate the way they feel on your head X

  • I think this product is a must try. Oh, I can’t wait to see how it will work for me!

      Hope you like it! X

  • I think your hair looks great! You hairdresser does a fantastic job. Root cover ups are definitely popular. Sometimes you don’t want to color your entire head in-between color appointments.

    • Amy

      Thank you Kim! Totally X

  • Love how shiny your hair is!! I don’t get on well with dry shampoos, it’s just one of these products that I want off my hair once it’s on. This one does sound good though!

    • Amy

      I know what you mean about that feeling X
