Whether you’re busy, in between a workout, or a new mom, we have 5 super easy dirty hair hairstyles for going in between washes with a good dry shampoo…
I’d say this year has really tested all of us when it comes to how often we’re washing our hair!
I mean, work-from-home life has definitely become the new normal. And that just so happens to lend itself to not getting dolled up as often.
With that, I’ve been relying on extending my non-wash days as looong as possible! But also utilizing hair care tips to maintain healthy tresses.
Aside from having a few new hairstyle ideas in your arsenal, there are two key products I’m using for these looks from the Pantene Waterless Collection.
My tried and true must-have is a good invisible dry shampoo. The Pantene Never Tell Dry Shampoo Spray is sulfate and paraben-free with pro-vitamin B5, tapioca, and wild mint for absorbing dirt and oil from greasy roots.
The second is a new-to-me product that I thought was really cool, the Pantene Mist Behaving Dry Conditioner Mist. It adds nourishing ingredients to frizzy, tangled, or just plain unruly hair for frizz protection between washes.
Now let’s hop to it with some easy dirty hair hairstyle ideas for greasy hair days…
How to Use Dry Shampoo and Conditioner Mist For Dirty Hair Hairstyles
Always shake the can well before and during use.
Then, part your hair to lift sections of dry hair starting at the top of the head.
Spray at roots and wherever your hair may need a refresh.
Next, massage thoroughly with fingertips or brush it out before styling as usual.
For the Pantene Mist Behaving Dry Conditioner Mist, hold the can 6-8 inches away from your hair for optimal coverage.
DON’T hold the can too close to your hair, and be sure to spray from the mid-lengths and downward on dry hair, not at your roots.
5 Simple Hairstyles for Dirty Hair When Washing is Not an Option
1 — Simple Braided Up-do
My days of waiting tables gave me a looooot of good practice at coming up with ways to keep my hair pulled back in as little time as possible.
This simple, braided low bun was one of my go-to’s and I still love it all these years later.
I always start by spraying dry shampoo at my roots and brushing it out with my fingers…
Next, braid a loose ponytail and tie it with a small elastic hair tie. Twist the ponytail into a low bun and pin it with bobby pins.
Lastly, you can add a cute clip for extra excitement to your look.

2 — An Accent Headband
This is a classic look that’s always good for when your curls are still holding a bit, but you need a little extra something.
I’m also a big fan of a statement headband like that red and pink color block version. And it pairs well with the Pantene Mist Behaving Dry Conditioner Mist for taming the ends.
3 — Middle Part Ponytail with a Bow Tie Scrunchie
There are ponytails, and then there are elevated ponytails! I love how a middle part or side part ponytail with loosened pieces along the face makes it feel more put together.
I always start with plenty of dry shampoo on the sides of my head to make sure the pulled-back pieces look fresh.
You can top it off with a velvet scrunchie bow and conditioned ends.
Be sure to only spray the mid-length of your hair and down to the ends with the Pantene Mist Behaving Dry Conditioner Mist. This way, your roots don’t become oily again.
You can always skip the ponytail and go for a messy bun or top knot with a dressed-up hair accessory too.
4 | Half Back with an Accent Clip
The half-pulled-back hairstyle is a classic, which is why I like adding a modern clip to this style.
Rather than revamping your second-day hair or curls, just let them fall for a tousle, yet. sophisticated style
And if you’re always losing your hair accessories like us, then keep your clips organized in one of these creative bow holder DIY ideas.
5 — Double Low Ponytail
This is another fun but SUPER simple up-do. It actually consists of two different ponytails in one.
Start by making one, half ponytail and tuck the end of the ponytail back in…
Next, part the remaining hair down the middle and wrap it around the existing ponytail. Then, tie it all together with a small elastic band.
You can also take a small section of hair from the bottom of the ponytail to wrap around the elastic to hide it and secure it with a bobby pin for a finished look.
Another twist: Try this style with a pulled-through braid for an even more intricate style that takes very little time.
And that’s a wrap on how to extend your non-wash days for as long as possible! You can find the Pantene Waterless Collection in-store and online at Kroger.
What are some of your favorite dirty hair hairstyles?
I do always love a classic french braid, dutch braids, or crowned braids if you’re handy with braiding for everyday wear (or even special fancy occasions with a DIY Floral Headpiece).
