Ultimate Hair Tips to Revolutionize Your Appearance
We all know how a bad hair day affects us, everything goes wrong and we are left feeling like we wish we had never gotten out of bed. While the first reaction might be to grab the nearest hair care products, this is not always the best course of action to take. Many of these products are overpriced and simply do not deliver on their promises.
The good news is that there are a number of hairstyling hacks that you can implement to change your day from a bad hair day to a good hair day. Implement the following strategies and you are sure to have more good than bad hair days.
Tip # 1: Rinse your conditioner off with cold water as this helps to seal the cuticle and gives your hair more shine. Remember to only apply conditioner to the ends of your hair.
Tip # 2: Change your parting occasionally as this increases volume and body of your hair, giving you a whole different appearance.
Tip # 3: Choose shampoo and conditioners without sulphate and other harsh ingredients. This is especially important if you dye your hair regularly. If you're brave, you could even go the no-poo route!
Tip # 4: Protect your hair from the sun by wearing a hat or scarf during the sunniest parts of the day.
Tip # 5: Mix it up a little (and hide your regrowth!) by creating a zig zag pattern in your parting.
Tip # 6: Don’t stray too far from your natural hair color if you want to color wash your hair. Stick to within a shade or two of your natural hair color.
Tip # 7: Treat your hair by brushing it every night. Brush from roots to ends as this distributes the oils evenly giving your hair a natural shine.
Tip # 8: Get the maximum return on a blowout by using satin or silk pillowcases on your pillows, or invest in a satin hair cover.
Tip # 9: Spray static guard on your brush or comb to prevent your hair from blowing all over the place. Try Dax Relax thermal protector, which is specially formulated to prevent and repair damage created by heat tools. It hydrates and prevents damage, building body and adding shine, leaving hair soft, manageable and static free.
Tip # 10: Bend over and shake your head to loosen your hair then run your fingers or a comb through it. Do this when your hair is dry as it will give the appearance of volume and bounce to your hair.
So there you have 10 tips to help you have more good hair days than bad hair days. Remember that first impressions last so it is a good idea to take care of your hair.
