When the weekend finally rolls around, it probably takes everything in you to not squeal loudly with joy. You can finally unwind, relax, and do the laundry list of chores that have piled up during the week. It’s important to take the time to pamper yourself—especially if you’ve had a long week. And with the number of products and heat styling tools you probably use on your Monday through Friday, your mane could most likely use some TLC, too. Want to show your strands some love this weekend? Try any of the below ideas, depending on your hair’s individual needs.   

Add Clay to Your Hair Care Routine

Does your hair tend to be on the oily side? Follow these steps to help your hair look less greasy.

Step 1: Pre-shampoo mask. Before getting your hair wet in the shower, use the L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Extraordinary Clay Pre-Shampoo Mask for oily roots. Apply the mask to dry roots section by section, making sure to cover your entire head. Leave it on for three to five minutes, gently massaging it into your scalp when you rinse.

Step 2: Shampoo. After rinsing out the mask, use the L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Extraordinary Clay Shampoo. Massage the shampoo into wet hair, lather, then rinse.

Step 3: Condition. Thought you could skip conditioner because your hair gets oily? Think again! Just focus on your ends when you do it. Use the L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Extraordinary Clay Conditioner after shampooing. Apply it sparingly to your ends, leave it on for about three minutes, then rinse out.

Swap Out Your Regular Shampoo and Conditioner for a Cleansing Balm

Why not try a cleansing balm this weekend? The L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Cleansing Balm is a six-in-one cleansing balm for dry, damaged hair. It cleanses, conditions, treats, detangles, softens, and adds shine. Whoa—talk about a workhorse! Basically, a cleansing conditioner can take the place of your hair care routine—all in one step. And when you have a lot to accomplish in a weekend, having to use just one product for all your hair’s needs can simplify your to-do list. To use, apply six to eight pumps to wet hair (add additional pumps for longer hair as needed), massage it gently, and distribute it evenly throughout your hair until your hair is fully saturated. Leave it on for three to five minutes, then rinse. That’s it—you don’t have to use conditioner afterwards!

Give the Heat Tools a Break

If you’re the kind of person who blow-dries, curls, or straightens her hair every day during the work week, it’s time to give your hair a break! Excessive use of heat tools can lead to some damage, so let your hair air dry instead this weekend. That doesn’t mean you have to skip out on styling—there are plenty of ways you can embrace your natural hair texture and still look absolutely stunning. Need some inspo? Try one of the three products below.

1. Mousse. You don’t have to be scared of mousse! Here’s how to use it: Apply the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Ruffled Body Mousse to damp hair, then create a single braid. This strong-hold mousse can enhance your hair’s natural texture. Instead of tying your braid off with a hair tie, though, wrap it into a bun instead. Once your hair has dried, unwrap the bun for pretty waves.

2. Wave swept spray. Who says you need to be anywhere near the ocean to get beachy waves? On towel-dried hair, spritz on the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray. Create one braid for looser waves for a few braids for tighter waves. When your hair is about 95 percent dried, undo the braid and say hello to texture.

3. Styling cream. For a chic look, apply the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Undone Style Cream to damp hair and let your hair dry. You can also apply a tiny bit to your ends once your hair is dry.
