We have all been there, you are out of bed later than intended and your hair simply won’t do what it is told. With time running out you are faced with deciding between a hat, going with your hair a mess, or simply calling in sick.
The good news is that there is another way to avoid bad hair days altogether!
Having gorgeous hair means taking care of it
Choose Your Products Wisely
The first thing you should note is that the products you choose to use on your hair make a big difference. The main consideration is whether you are using ones with harsh chemicals or natural products like the Kerastase range.
Harsh chemicals damage your hair and strip the oil from your scalp, these will make it more likely that you will suffer from a bad hair day and be unable to get your hair to behave as it should. The right products clean your hair effectively but are gentle and lock in moisture, making it easier to tame it in the morning.
Choosing the right products for your hair is extremely important
It is not recommended to wash your hair every day. However, it is tempting to wash it if it won’t behave. Before you resort to this try using dry shampoo. It will help it to stay clean and healthy-looking. At the same time, the dry shampoo will add texture, potentially making it easier to style your hair as you usually do.
If you are really struggling to eliminate the bad hair then accessorize with hair bands or other decorative pieces, it will distract from your hair and can be used to make a useful style statement. You should keep an array of accessories at home to cover any bad hair day and any occasion, this will ensure you can leave your home confident that you look good.
If you have no idea what to do with your hair, the best solution is to accessorize
Don’t Use Straighteners
It is a good idea to avoid hair straighteners and other heat tools at least once or twice a week. The heat damages your hair and can make it harder to style properly. But, in addition, straighteners can be a nightmare if you use them on greasy hair.
Instead of getting your usual polished finish, you will have a frizzled mess. If you are lucky washing it again can resolve the issue.
Avoid the heat tools unless there is a special occasion
When you are really tied for time you can cheat by spraying water across your hair and tying it back. You can even wash it and gently comb it before letting it fall naturally and go with the wet look. This style is very popular at the moment and will leave your hair looking different but great.
Just remember to brush carefully as wet hair is easily damaged. You should brush from the bottom up holding the hair above the section you are brushing. This prevents strain and damage to the roots.
There is nothing better than natural hair
The Bottom Line
The bottom line is that the right products the night before can prevent any bad hair day issues from arising. But, if you do suffer from bad hair day, embrace it. You’ll feel better about it.
