Alright, I'm getting sick and tired of just putting my hair in a ponytail and not doing anything creative with it. My hair is super bleached and damaged from hair dye and straightening, and it's super frizzy, suuuuper thick, and curly/wavy. I have red roots and black ends, and my hair goes down to my bra strap.
I usually just get out of the shower, air dry my hair, and then put it up in a ponytail for school/work/just going outside. I have straight bangs and I'd rather not straighten/curl my hair, but I always straighten my bangs before I leave. I have about 30 mins before I have to leave everyday, so I can't do super complicated styles.
So really, what I'm asking is if any of you guys know of some hairstyles that I can do that doesn't involve much work. I don't necessarily care if it's super cute or anything, I just want to do something different other than a ponytail. I'm even willing to cut my hair a different way if it means my hair can be more manageable. I'm trying to keep long hair, but it's so damaged I'm wondering if I should just cut it short and start over.
What do you guys think?
You could always get yourself a Brazilian Blowout! It straightens, smooths, and softens your hair. It doesnt damage your hair either. In fact, it improves the all around welfare of your hair and repairing damaged hair plus split ends! Although you may want to get the Brazilian Blowout Zero+ because some traces of formaldehyde have been found in the original and that could cause rashes and possibly even cancer. BB Zero+ is completely safe, I should know, I have spent hours researching it! Call your local salon and see if they can do one for you, they work wonders!
Why don't you try a side bun or a sock bun. You can also do twists on the side of your head or a braid and then wrap your hair in a bun, that's my go-to hairstyle.
