Better days are going to be over once you have a bad hair day, right? Well, not anymore!
When you have frizzy, thick curly hair, you always wonder what your hair will look like again tomorrow. Will it look like a bird just made a nest out of it? Will others think you just got struck by lightning? Or will you go grocery shopping like all the oils were poured down your hair? Damn!
We have to admit, bad hair days are always amongst us, but it doesn’t have to be! With all the products and some tips and tricks out there, great hair days are just around the corner.
Try these hair hacks we listed down for you and see if it works for you.
1. Use dry shampoo.
These product is heaven sent! Dry shampoo helps absorb excess oils on your hair and adds volume and texture to it. Carry one wherever you go for that instant root lift.
If you don’t have a dry shampoo, try using baby powder. Just a little of it (so it won’t get noticed) and gently massage it on your scalp at the roots.
2. Use toothbrush and hairspray.
For those pesky flyways, put some hairspray on a toothbrush and gently brush it on your hair to keep it in place.
3. Put your hair in a bun.
A bun is always a lifesaver when you’re in a rush, whenever you feel like it, or during your worst days. Putting your hair in a bun will give you a polished and classy look that’s perfect for whatever occasion.
4. Always carry bobby pins.
Bobby pins are super handy for days when you want to add style to your hair or for a real quick fix. These are just small items that it can fit your purse so there’s basically no reason for you not to always have one.
5. Learn how to braid.
Whether you have straight or curly hair, braiding your hair is always an effective solution to a bad hair day. Plus there are hundreds of ways you can braid your hair that suits your style.
6. Wear a hat or headband.
Perhaps the easiest way to look classy, glamourous or adorable is wearing a hat or headband. For dull-looking hair or thick frizzy hair, these accessories will complete your day. Find a hat or headband that goes with everything — a plain, simple one will do. Basically, a no-brainer!
7. Find time to prepare.
Having great hair could actually take a very little effort. Just find time to prepare to do your hair. Learn to adjust your time so you can have time to fix your hair the way you want it to. Learn to do hairstyles that you can finish in as little as five minutes.
If you have flat hair, you can backcomb the roots to give it a fuller look in an instant.
9. Use cool air to set your hair.
When blowdrying your hair, the hot air styles your hair, but the cool setting sets it. It is important to set the hair as it will be the defining factor if your hair is going to last the whole day.
10. Know your hair type.
All of these tips will not apply to you if you don’t know your hair type. If you have either dry or oily hair, use products that would enhance your hair type. If you have thick hair, don’t use any volumising product anymore, or if you already have flat hair, don’t try to make it worse by making it even flatter.
The key to ending your bad hair days is to understand your hair type so you’ll know what to do with it.
