Whether you are a new mom or a mom hustling to keep up with your toddler and kindergartner, you're well aware that this is a seriously exhausting business. That means time slots for going to the hair salon are hard to get on the schedule. Here are some quick curly hairstyles and tips for busy moms.

Don’t skip getting a haircut and color

Of all the things you have to sacrifice because there are not enough minutes in the day, ignoring taking care of your hair should not be one of them. Quick curly hairstyles and styling methods work so much better when your hair is healthy and you have a good haircut. Personally, it helps me gain a little sanity knowing my hair looks good, or at least okay, in the midst of my busy mom lifestyle.

Pulling your hair back is always a good option when you are in a rush. Be sure to use fabric-covered rubber bands. Curly hair is fragile and the less stress you put on it the better. You can jazz your ponytail up with decorative bobby pins or a headband. A great product to use on wet or dry hair before you pull your curls into a ponytail is HerCut Ponytail Styling Balm.

It keeps your curly ponytail soft and pliable, while the humectant-concentrated ingredients de-frizz and define curls. This product also adds shine and controls stubborn fly-aways.
