How To Handle A Bad Hair Day
Let’s face it – everyone has them. Even the celebrities with the picture perfect gorgeous hair probably wake up on some days not
knowing what to do with their hair. Hairsprays and mousse can only take you so far but what do you do when it’s a real hair emergency
that even the best hair products can’t handle. Well...first of all...take a deep breath and relax. And then...let’s take a look at
some of the tried and tested ways of handling a bad hair day.
Wake up in the morning and realize your hair looks greasy? And there’s no time for a quick shampoo? This one’s a time-tested method
of getting rid of some of that oiliness till you can come home and give your hair a good wash. Take a bit of talcum powder and rub it
through your hair. Make sure you don’t take too much though or your hair will become white. The point is to use the powder to absorb
some of the grease so your hair doesn’t look limp. Shake your head well so any excessive falls out.
Hair not looking top notch? Well…definitely don’t leave it out then. Pull your hair back in a ponytail instead. For a sporty look, you
could go for a high ponytail starting at the crown. But if you want a more laidback look, pull your hair back at the nape. Use hair
accessories to add some spice to your look. Ponytails and braids can be sexy too…just try a few styles to see which one looks best
on you and you won’t have to panic about bad hair days anymore.
Hair accessories are the best way to take the attention away from bad hair. Pull your hair back in a ponytail and put on a cool
hair band. Or wear some funky hair clips to brighten up your style. The hair accessories will focus attention on themselves and no
one will notice your “bad hair day”!
I love hats and they’re the perfect way to cover up bad hair…especially in winter. Depending on what you’re wearing choose a hat
that suits your outfit. Baseball caps, golfer hats, summery beach hats or a more stylish hat – whatever the style – they all do a
good job of hiding disastrous hair and creating a new look for you.
Want to tame your hair but don’t want ‘hat hair’? Well…scarves are a good option. A broad scarf can cover all your hair, and double
up as a bandanna of sorts. Or, if you like pick a narrow scarf and use it as headband. Very 70s and very hip!
Last but not the least…here are a few simple tips to combat those hairy scary days and keep them at bay as much as possible.
• Avoiding Bed Head
If you want to avoid bed head and wake up with awesome hair, get yourself some brand new linen and make sure its satin. Satin
pillowcases don’t cause much friction with your hair leaving you looking awesome!
• Exposure to Heat
Exposure to heat in any form can be damaging to your hair. So protect your hair from too much sun and at the same time, protect it
from too much of blow drying, straightening etc. If you must do it, invest in a protective serum that will protect your hair from
• Deep Conditioning
Treat your tresses to a regular deep conditioning treatment to keep your hair moisturized and hence less prone to damage.
• A Haircut
Last but not the least…if your hair’s really going out of control, get a haircut and tame it. A haircut will get rid of all the dead
ends and leave you looking fresh too.
So next time you have a bad hair day, don’t panic…simply think of an innovative way to hide away the flaws and focus attention on the
fantastic bits. It’s easy as that!
