10 Hairstyle Hacks For Gorgeous Hair

10

I don’t think I have to tell anyone what a great hair day can do for your mood and self esteem. In addition to basic tips for keeping your hair healthy and strong (and ensuring more great hair days), check out these 10 hairstyle hacks to add volume, perfect curls and prevent oily hair. 

Add Volume

Tease at the Root

Teasing may be an old-school tactic, but it’s still a go-to method for hairstylists because it really works. For first-time teasers, here’s how to do it: Gather hair at the crown of the head and backcomb two to three-inch sections down the roots. Then, brush through with your fingertips to soften the look.

Dry Hair Upside Down

Skipping the brush and drying hair upside down allows gravity to lift your strands away from the scalp. To lock in the volume even further, flip your head over again and spritz on some volumizing spray.

Creating The Perfect Curl

Use Hairspray

Give your hair an all over spritz and then brush through with a flat brush to create dryness. It helps hold a better curl. 

Brush Through Your Curls

If you’re going for a naturally curly look, give your hair a quick brush and then finger comb the curls. This is terrifying the first time you do it – you just spent all that time creating perfect curls but it’s worth it! Trust me.

Prevent Oily Hair

Don’t wash every day

Shampooing too often can actually lead to oily hair. Washing too often can actually cause the natural oils in your hair to be stripped too quickly, making it even more oily by encouraging your body to make up the loss. So give it a try – skip a day and see how it goes for you.

Only Condition the Tips

You should avoid conditioning near your roots where oil is produced. Instead, condition at the ends where hair is more dry. 

Tips For Every Hair Type

  • Use the right products for your hair
  • Invest in quality tools
  • Protect it from extreme heat or cold
  • Keep it clean with quality products

  1. I’ve always liked TRESemme products. I quit using it when I used hairspray (big hair days) because it would leave a lot of icky debris in my hair after washing it. I restarted using it when I trashed the hairspray.
