Today’s post is all about the bad hair days. We’ve all experienced a bad hair day more often. The funny thing about a bad hair day is that it’s really hard to define! Sometimes, it could just be the grease and flatness in the hair. Sometimes, it gets too frizzy, curly or kinky in an unflattering way. Sometimes, you wash it thinking that it’ll look fresh and bouncy, but it starts to look very different from what you had imagined. To cut a long story short, a bad hair day is a common phenomenon that you’re likely to run into on days when you want and need your hair to look its best! Listed down are seven very simple things that you can do in order to combat a bad hair day.
Let’s take a look at what these typically bad hair day problems are, and then get into some simple and feasible solutions.
1. Your Hair is Greasy and Oily:
If you haven’t had time to wash your hair or if it’s just too cold to do so, your hair can start to look weighed down with the grease, grime and oil in it. In that case, your dry shampoo is your best friend. Just spray the product into your hair, let it absorb the oils for a couple of minutes and then brush it out for more voluminous and fresh-looking hair. If you don’t have dry shampoo, try using some baby powder instead. It works well!
2. Your Hair Looks Messy and Unmanageable:
When your hair becomes too messy and unmanageable, then you could opt for a simple hairstyle such as a braid. A braid will keep your hair in control while looking chic and stylish!
3. Your Roots are Untouched:
If you haven’t had time to touch up your roots with colour and that’s showing through, then here’s what you need to do. Stay away from straight and polished hairstyles, because that’s when you’re untouched roots are likely to show up the most. Instead, opt for a hairstyle with messy curls, which can help camouflage those roots.
4. Your Ponytail Won’t Sit Smoothly:
Sometimes, you’ll try to tie your hair up into a ponytail thinking that it will be smooth, chic and will be out of your face. But, actually, sometimes your ponytail will look bumpy and just won’t sit smoothly. For those days, all you need to do is to open up your hair, apply some smoothing serum or a styling product, comb it out neatly, and then reattempt the ponytail. You could also apply some heat to smooth it out further. Another tip is to try the double ponytail trick for added volume and texture.
5. Your Hair is Too Frizzy:
On days when your hair is frizzy, make sure not to apply further heat to style it. You could either use a leave-in conditioner through your hair or apply a little bit of olive oil, coconut oil or some dry oil (such as argan oil) through the lengths of your hair and style as desired.
6. Your Ends are Rough and Dry:
For rough and dry ends, you need a thick conditioning cream. You could also take your regular in-shower conditioner, dilute it with a little bit of water and apply it to the ends of your hair. You can leave this on throughout the day for deep nourishment.
7. Your Hair Won’t Look Good in Any Hairstyle:
Sometimes, no matter what hairstyle you attempt—a braid, a messy bun or a ponytail—your hair just won’t sit right. For such days, all you need is a hat. Grab a fashionable hat of your choice to camouflage a bad hair day. This is, of course, even more, practical and acceptable in the winter season.
