We girls love our hair! It’s one part of our appearance that we have so much control over; from the colour to the cut, we can continuously choose its appearance. Getting a new hairstyle can make you feel like new!
The downside is that bad hair days can feel like the end of the world. I never feel quite as confident when my hair is looking unkempt or oily. Thereâ€™s just something about having nice, smooth hair that makes me feel twice as calm and collected!
If youâ€™re in the same boat as me, then here are some tips that will help you avoid bad hair days â€“ or at the very least, fight against them!
– Wash your hair the night before if you have an early start!
If my hair needs a wash and I am getting up early the next morning, then I like to wash it the night before, so that I donâ€™t have to waste time blow-drying and then frantically trying to make it sit nice! Plus I love waking up with soft, smooth hair â€“ itâ€™s so much easier to style and feels lovely.
– Don’t brush your hair when it is wet
Â Use a comb! Otherwise youâ€™ll get awful split ends, which are frizzâ€™s worst enemy.
– Embrace what you’ve got
As the old saying goes, you always want what you donâ€™t have. I have straight thick blonde hair, but what I really want is curly auburn hair! Yet every girl with curly hair is envious of mine. Why donâ€™t we all embrace the hair type that weâ€™ve got? Curly haired gals, enjoy the natural volume that keeps your hair looking healthy and as for you with straight hair, be thankful you donâ€™t have to worry about frizz!
-Â Use a headscarf
If your hair simply wonâ€™t sit straight or look any good, then try popping on a head scarf or wearing a cute head bandâ€¦ they will totally distract anyone from thinking your hair is looking limp â€“ in fact they will probably comment on how nice it looks instead.
-Â Take a raincoat/umbrella on rainy days
Rain is hairs worst enemy. If you predict rain, take a raincoat or an umbrella to keep your hair nice and dry. Rain can often make it look tired and greasy. Also, in windy weather try wearing it up, or in a French plait, to keep it tidy and out of your face.
