How long do you spend doing your hair in the morning?

Just a bit surprised at seeing how long someone said they spend on their hair on another thread - is an hour or even half an hour the norm?

I never dry my hair (it dries into nice waves) and spend under 10 seconds on it in the morning, running a bit of serum through it.

I have long hair, by the way. It's all in the cut, imho.

About a minute. I let my hair dry naturally into curls/waves, so if I've washed it in the morning just a bit of product.

If dry I just tidy it a bit. .

Depends. If I wash it then washing it takes about 5 minutes and then about 5 minutes drying (do other things while it dries on its own a bit).

Otherwise about 30 seconds brushing and 30 seconds putting clips in (is growing and at an awkward stage).

Usually wash and let dry naturally after the gym in the evening. So in the morning it is about three minutes flat to drag the GHDs thru. If I do have to wash, dry and straighten in the morning its about 10 mins.

Who has an hour to do their hair in the morning??!

Wash and condition in shower
towel dry and add mousse, then leave while I do make up
blow dry (10 mins)
add wella pro-syler gel
Final touches and hairspray!
So SIX products and about 20 mins in all sad

Wash then rub a bit of moroccanoil and Boots curly creme through and leave to dry.

Back-combing, kirby grips. Under 3 minutes. I would rather sleep longer than do my hair!

I suppose 10 minutes in total, I wash it every morning in the shower (5 minutes), let it dry while I eat my breakfast and then go upstairs to finish it off. Quick blast to dry it then GHDs and shine spray (5 minutes).

I have naturally straight hair in a bob.

17 seconds. 19 if I'm sticking a clip in it.

tethersend Sun 17-Jul-11 20:49:52

Dry shampoo, straighteners and hairspray to backcomb. Then more hairspray.

About 10-15 mins in all.

I try not to stand near naked flames.

Used to be about 15/20 mins but since it has started thinning and almost receding at the temples it takes me hours. I obsess constantly and try different ways to make it look less obvious. I hate it sad angry

Normally 30 seconds to run a brush through it and tie back, but have just had it cut so might need to smooth it down a bit as it is shorter now and liable to frizz all over the place if I leave it to it's own devices.

PirateDinosaur Sun 17-Jul-11 20:53:36

If you exclude washing, about 20 seconds (brushing). If you include washing/conditioning, add in another five minutes.

Karbea Sun 17-Jul-11 20:57:01

I'd say about 20mins, I'm shocked how quickly you all take on your hair.

If I'm not washing it, under a minute - the time it takes to do two plaits/a pony tail/tie the front back.

If I'm washing it, add 5 mins (the time it takes to shampoo and condition it!).

My hair is very straight, about boob length, reasonably well behaved and v low maintenance - I don't even own a hairbrush! I could do with spending 5 mins blowdrying the roots for volume, but I'm too bloody lazy.

dexter73 Sun 17-Jul-11 21:07:35

I have very curly hair so the less I do to it the better.

MissBeehiving Sun 17-Jul-11 21:09:01

Straighteners, bit of argan oil probably about 10 mins

thehairybabysmum Sun 17-Jul-11 21:13:21

I have v short hair, takes less than 5 mins to dry and rub a bit of product through, can wash and leave if in a hurry though. Was also gobsmacked at the other thread and how long it took!

bigTillyMint Mon 18-Jul-11 08:11:19

Well, you;ve all made me feel a lot bettersmile

I have shoulder length hair which takes 2mins to brush (and tie up, if I need to) I luckily only need to wash it every 3 days or so, and that only takes 15mins or so, 5 if leaving to dry naturally!
