5 Ways to Fake a Good Hair Day
It’d be nice if we woke up with (or had time in the morning for) a perfectly bouncy blowout. But you know…life (and humidity). So for those times when your strands are less than luscious, here are five tips for faking a better hair day.
If You Fell Asleep with Damp Hair, Re-Wet Anything Weird
Suffering from wonky waves after going to bed with wet hair? Re-wet the weird sections, then blow-dry and style just those parts to save time. Alternately, you could simply change up your part and take a curling iron to the rest to balance out the kinks.
If Locks Are Dry or Dull, Try a Hair Mask
Summer can take a serious toll on your hair. To repair strands that are looking dull or frizzy, reach for a deep-conditioning or reconstructive mask to add moisture, combat humidity and even add shine back into colored hair.
If Your Hair Is Flat, Try This Hairspray Trick
Don’t let limp strands convince you that you’re going to have a bad hair day. Got 15 seconds and a bit of hairspray? Just spritz, zhuj and voilà: post-blowout volume in no time.
If You Have Product BuildUp, Cleanse Your Scalp
The perfect hair day starts from the inside out. Try a quick lemon rinse to get rid of icky product buildup so your scalp (and therefore strands) stays clean and gunk-free.
if YOU’RE JUST FEELING BORED, ATTEMPT A NEW ’DO
Whether it’s a wet-hair style that’ll turn your locks into gorgeous waves by day’s end, or a new twist on the classic bun, these hairstyles definitely don’t feel like a last resort. (Because who has time for a blowout every morning, anyway?)
