Bad hair days can be the stuff of nightmares. We’ve all been there at 7am, desperately trying to cram our hair into a messy bun after applying half a bottle of dry shampoo. It’s just not what you want in the morning. So, to help you avoid any future disasters, we’ve put together some tips to avoid a bad hair days and keep your locks looking their best at all times.
Blow Dry Your Hair Every Time You Wash It
This might seem like a major commitment but giving yourself an at home blow dry will make your hair more manageable and smooth until you need to wash it again. You can either dry it bouncy with a round brush or straight with a paddle brush, whichever you prefer but doing this will help to tame the frizz and flyaways for longer. It’s also worth using a blow dry spray that will set your style too as this will help to hold the look for longer and always blast your hair with the cool setting too as this will really help to set your work in place.
Learn How To Braid
Braids can hide a multitude of sins and are really easy to do while making it look like you’ve made major effort. You can also tame frizz with braid. Just use lots of product to smooth your hair back into line and pull the sections tight as you braid to keep the tension. If you want to go for something a little less severe though you can ‘pancake’ your braids afterwards which is basically when you gently pull them apart to make the hair look thicker. This is great for disguising greasy hair too or for thinner hair types that need some extra volume.
Get A Hair Routine
I know this sounds like the most boring thing ever but setting some time aside to do a mask, blow dry or even go to the salon will give you way more chance of avoiding a bad hair day. You need to look after your hair if you want it to work for you so setting time aside to care for it is really important. Using masks regularly and fitting in time to blow dry will save you from heat damage in the long run too so it’s totally worth it.
Get Regular Trims
Even if you spend hours styling your hair, dry and split ends will always look totally dishellived so it’s important to get them snipped off regularly. Split ends can also keep on splitting up the hair shaft making your hair look brittle so it’s important that you get rid of them as soon as possible. If you don’t want to loose any length though maybe try out our ‘dusting’ techniques in between salon visits to fix them.
Find Your Go-To Bad Hair Day Hairstyle
It is really helpful to have one or two super easy and quick looks that you can pull out when you need to. Whether that’s perfecting your messy bun or just straightening your hair quickly, you need styles that are simple and will work for everyday. This will depend on your hair type and cut too but Pinterest is the best place to research new styles and you’re bound to find something that works for you.
