No matter how gorgeous your locks are, everyone falls victim to bad hair days every now and then, yes even your friend with that swishy swashy mane who you’re secretly envious of. There may not be a way to magically turn an unmanageable mop into a sleek and perfect hairdo on a rushed up morning, but there are a few things that could help transform it into a chicer, less messier style. We give you a few products that will save you on a bad hair day, keep them handy since you never know when humidity and frizziness will strike.
A spray or serum that can help curb your frizz when you’re out and about or stuck at your office desk is useful to keep in your bag. A small bottle can help salvage your tress distress with a few spritzes. If you have curly hair you will know that you can’t really do much to tame it when it’s dry so carry a conditioning spray like John Frieda Frizz-Ease Daily Nourishment Leave-In Conditioning Spray that will dampen as well as tame your curls.
Salvage a once-voluminous blow dry or fine hair that has a knack for going flat and limp with a dry texturizing spray to give you fuller, lusher locks instantly. We like Wella Create Character Texturising Spray to give your strands a vivacious boost of body. Flip your head over and spray your strands and roots for some va va voom volume immediately.
You never know when a small pack of bobby pins lying at the bottom of your purse can come in handy. Use them to pull back your bangs when they just won’t behave, to hold your strands in place when you’re trying a chic updo or sleek ponytail or when your long locks are getting in your face. They’ll help bail you out with most of your hair woes.
If you suffer from oily hair then you can never be sure when the greasiness will hit. You can leave your home with your strands feeling fresh as a daisy but by midday, your mane can turn into an oil slick. It’s smart to have a good dry shampoo on you at all times to sap up all the greasiness, freshen up your roots and bring a healthy bounce to your locks. We love LUSH No Drought Dry Shampoo to help control slick strands.
One fuss-free way to disguise a not-so-great hair day is by simple slipping on a pretty hairband or embellished hair clips and pins. Even a colourful scarf or fun hat like a quirky fedora (if you can pull it off) can up your style quotient and no one will ever know that you’re actually covering up a bad hair day with some effortless style. Using fun hair accessories is the simplest way to save a bad hair day in under a minute and can help give you a new hairstyle once you slip them on.
If you have natural waves that tend to get all matted up, fall flat or sometimes simply frizz up into an uncontrollable mop then a sea salt spray should be your new best friend. A magic bottle like Toni & Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray is perfect to spritz onto your mane and then use your fingers to tousle and scrunch for better defined waves that are low on frizz but high on glam.
A small bottle of hairspray can help calm those bad hair day woes. Use it to keep your style in place and help it last longer, hold flyaways in place and prevent static from making your strands stick up as well as help tame unruly hair. We like TIGI Catwalk Work It Hairspray as it is great for frizz control as well.
