Bad Hair Day Hairstyles & Tips
There comes a day every once in a while that every woman will look into the mirror and realize she’s having a bad hair day. Whether you are trying to hide second-day strands or just get out of the house on time, we have twelve quick fixes for your most pressing hair emergencies.
- To tame fly-aways, spray a toothbrush with Got2b Glam Force hairspray then gently brush your hair into place. The light application of hairspray will give you hold without being too stiff.
- Carry dry shampoo with you wherever you go: it is like an instant root lift and shower in one.
- Keep up with your salon appointments. Trimming your dead ends on a regular basis will keep your look consistently refreshed.
- Know your hair type. If you’ve got oily hair, the products you use should complement that, not make it worse. The same goes for dry hair.
- Always use a heat protectant if you’re flat ironing or blow drying your hair on a regular basis. With no form of protection, your hair will become fried, leading to more bad hair days than good.
- Never be without bobby pins. You can leave your house with the most amazing ‘do in the morning, but a slight change in weather can take you from good hair day to bad. A bobby pin or two can fix you right up.
- Know what kind of maintenance you can handle before you get a cut. The lowest maintenance hair is long, layered cuts. Short hair requires styling just about every day.
- Make sure you have a simple, plain headband that goes with everything. Throwing one in on a bad hair day can transform it into a good one.
- Deep condition your hair weekly, especially if you’re heat styling your hair daily. Use something like the Gliss Ultra Moisture Anti-Breakage treatment to help lock moisture into your strands and keep your hair looking healthy.
- Use product before you style your hair. This gives the end result a way longer chance of lasting, so you can be sure your style will make it through the entire day.
- Try a texturizing spray like the göt2b Mess-Merizing texturizing hairspray. Textured hair is much easier to work with because it holds the style better. If you’re planning a braid or a top knot, be sure to add some texture first.
- Unless you absolutely need to, don’t wash your hair every day. Shampooing daily strips your strands of the natural oils they need to stay hydrated and healthy.
