Winter is setting in and with high pollution levels because of the firecrackers and low moisture, bad hair days are inevitable, says Agnes Chen
There are days when your hair and scalp don’t look good no matter what you do. There could be numerous reasons that your hair decides not to behave, be it dry, rough and frizzy hair or your scalp gets oily and greasy.
On a bad hair day, you need to rise above your normal routine and turn to these golden hacks that will prove to be a saving grace when you walk out of that door. Here are some quick fixes that will uplift your mood and restore your confidence, making you feel like there’s no bad hair day ever!
Grab some serum
Since moisture is at an all-time low, pump up the levels in your hair with some hair potion or hair serum, making it frizz-free and more manageable. The trick here is to add serum to the mid-lengths and ends of your hair, to fix the dryness and roughness.
Get shiny (not greasy)
Spray your hair with a hair shine spray. This will add incredible shine and fragrance to otherwise dry and limp hair.
Play it up
When things are not going as planned, its time to go crazy with your hair. Place your hair upside down, brush it at the roots in the opposite direction to helps create body and volume. Tease your roots to add volume and you will see the greasiness fade away.
Braid it or tail it
Since your hair has decided not to settle, why work against its wishes? Opt for the messy look that camouflages the frizz and roughness. Choose from a high ponytail with a fashionable messy pouf to hide the flyaways or jump right into the signature braid that will hold hair in place.
Accessorise all the way
Get your hands-on hair accessories like hair bands, scarves or hair pins that will up your glamour game to take the attention off your unruly hair and make you look your stylish best.
Keep straighteners and heat curls at bay
When your hair is already in trouble do not make it worse by using heat and chemicals. Leave your hair straightener in the closet and opt for heatless curls or waves.
These tips are a sure-shot way to turn a bad hair day into a good one. So get right onto it and walk out with style and elan!
