6 Easy Ways to Fix a Bad Hair Day

We've all had days when our hair just does not cooperate the way we'd like :) Whether it's bed hair, second day hair, or a simply bad hair day - here are 6 simple and quick tips on how to fix it!

1. Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo absorbs excess oils and adds a volumizing texture to your hair. If you don't have dry shampoo handy, try this simple trick: take a teaspoon of baby powder and gently massage it into your scalp at the roots. This will also absorb excess oils and make your hair appear fresher.

Tip: use little by little to make sure not to use too much, or otherwise it will be noticeable.

2. Braids, braids, braids

We just love braids. Not only will they cover up that second day hair, but they also look so much better on second or third day hair. For some ideas on what kinds of braids you can try out, click here.

3. Tease your roots

For flat hair, backcombing the roots will instantly lift the hair and give it a lively, fuller look. Learn how to backcomb your hair here.

4. Embrace the frizz

Your hair doesn't need to be perfectly smooth at all times. Why not befriend your frizz by lightly braiding or putting your hair in a boho-chic looking bun, and rock it with confidence? Just for your reference, tips on how to tame frizzy hair here.

5. Wash half your hair

Okay, this one may sound a little strange - but for a lot of ladies like us, the process of washing, conditioning, and drying the hair can take a long time. When you're in a rush, take the front part of your hair and wash that section only (maybe even in the sink). If you have bangs, wash the bangs. This will give an illusion that you have freshly washed hair and take the attention away from what you're trying to conceal.

6. Rock that cute hat or headband

This one's a given. For girls, it's probably what they're made for anyway! Try rocking a cute hat with a side braid, or tease your hair at the crown and put on a thick headband. 

And finally, it's only a bad hair day if we allow it to be one. Decide that you are beautiful no matter what, stay confident and smile!
