How To Always Have Perfect Hair
Keeping your locks under control can be tricky, especially if you’re prone to frizz or don’t have a lot of time in the morning. Turns out always having perfect hair is down to preparation and not something you just wake up with. Switching up your routine and picking the right products can be all it takes to make a major difference to your hair. Here’s what you need to do...
Get Regular Trims
Hair looks its best when it’s healthy and there’s no amount of styling that will mask split or dry ends. Even if you’re growing it out it’s still important to get regular trims and keep your locks looking super healthy. If you’re someone who’s always in a rush then opt for a blunt cut as crisp ends never fail to look good and it’ll be less upkeep than maintaining layers.
Get A Routine
Planning your hair routine in advance is the best way to ensure your hair looks perfect all the time. If you have a busy week then it’s worth figuring out the best evenings/mornings to wash and style your hair. It may sound a bit extra but if you want it to look its best then you’re going to have to make time for it.
Drag Out Your Blow Dry
A blow dry is the secret to perfect looking hair that lasts, even if you’re not getting it done at the salon. Mastering the at home blow dry will set you up for a few good hair days as it’s a really easy style to maintain. You can ideally drag it out for 2-3 days with a little dry shampoo and minimal touch ups, making it perfect for lazy girls who want their hair to look good.
Keep Stocked Up With Products
Having a stash of dry shampoo, hairspray, serum and bobby pins at all times means even on a bad day you’ll have the tools to fix your hair. It’s also worth picking up travel size versions for touch ups during the day, especially dry shampoo or anti frizz sheets to revive your locks.
Let Your Hair Cool After Styling
Letting your hair cool properly after styling will make a big difference in the longevity of your look. This is especially true of curls as letting them drop too soon will create loose waves rather than ringlets. To get more out of your styling time pick up a heat proof glove and hold your curl in place after using the tongs to give it more staying power. You can also apply a generous amount of hairspray in the morning to keep everything in place during the day.
Sleep On A Silk Pillowcase / Get A Hair Turban
We’ve gone on forever about the benefits of doing this for your hair health but it’ll also help to keep it looking fresher for longer. Silk doesn’t draw out as much moisture as cotton so you’ll find your hair is less greasy and not so frizzy come the morning. Silk turbans are also a perfect way to preserve your blow dry or fresh curls so that you won’t have to worry about re-styling in the morning.
Style Your Extensions In Advance
A good tip is to style your extensions before you need to wear them so that it cuts down the time you need to do your hair. For a quick blend just brush though your hair once they’re all clipped in and curl or straighten the top layer if you need to.
Get A Gloss Treatment
Gloss treatments coat your hair to make it look super shiny while taming frizz and flyaways. They’re a semi permanent treatment that smoothes the hair shaft and leaves you with way more manageable hair. They only last up to two weeks so it might not be something you do regularly but if you’ve got a busy week coming up then it could be a lifesaver.
Pick Products That Work For Your Hair Type
Choosing products that work with your hair type will help to make the styling process a lot easier and make your hair way more manageable. If you’re prone to frizz for example then it’s good to pick up a shampoo and conditioner that are really going to nourish your hair and keep it smoother for longer.
