Do you ever wonder how some women seem to have a good hair day every day while you can’t seem to get a simple messy bun right? If you’re feeling green with envy, drop the jealousy now – it’s not a good look. Instead, it’s time for you to learn a few tricks of your own.
Here are five helpful hacks to make every day a good hair day.
- The toothbrush and hairspray trick
Applying hairspray to eliminate frizz is a delicate balancing act. If you use too little, those fly-aways will pop right back up, but if you use too much you could end up with a rock-hard head helmet. However, there is one way you can make sure you’re applying just the right amount to keep the frizz at bay. Just spray an old toothbrush with hairspray and glide it over those pesky fly-aways.
- The boar bristle brush
According to celebrity hair stylist Charles Baker Strahan, brushing your hair with a boar bristle brush while blow drying can add shine, soften your strands, and add body to hair all at the same time. It works by moving the oil from your scalp down to your ends, providing your entire mane with the perfect amount of shine from top to bottom.
- Hair extensions
Studies show that the average woman changes her hairstyle 104 times throughout her life. With hair extensions, you can switch up your look even more often. It’s incredibly simple and it is gaining popularity across the country. According to a report by the Professional Beauty Association, over the past two years, there has been a 28.5% increase in the number of U.S. salons that offer hair extensions. Depending on where you live and the quality of extensions you’re looking for, hair extensions generally cost between $300 and $10,000.
- The bobby pin trick
To keep your ponytail from sagging, just place two bobby pins underneath the ponytail so that they go through your hair tie, pointing towards the nape of your neck. This trick will help your ponytail pop.
- The head massage
When you get a head massage, it stimulates blood flow to your hair follicles, prompting faster hair growth. It also distributes the oil away from your scalp so your hair looks healthier and more voluminous. And, bonus, you get to enjoy a head massage!
