Get More Mileage Out of Your Hair
Many women feel their hair looks better the day after a fresh style. Begin the "second day" by setting dry hair in Velcro rollers all over the head smoothing through to the ends of your hair. Apply a light hairspray at the roots for a little lift; the alcohol will absorb any excess oil. Next, apply heat for five minutes and allow hair to cool before finger styling. This is the formula behind instant "cover" hair. The rollers could be substituted by a curling or flat iron. Take advantage of "the second day" and get an extra 15 minutes of sleep.
Changing your style can be done with the flip of a "switch!" Flipping your hair to the other side than usual creates more volume and can create a dramatic change.
What's Not in Style
In the fall and winter months I can often be found battling with "oily hat head" and static. Conditioning your hair properly will help combat these annoying concerns. Turning up the heat this season may keep you warm but also wreak havoc on your hair. As you may notice that your skin is extremely dry this time of year and your hair is dehydrated as well, allowing static to take over your style. Take extra time to deep condition your hair in the shower, shampoo first then apply conditioner to your hair, comb thru with a wide-tooth comb and rinse when your shower is complete. Leaving the conditioner on for the extra time will work like a mini treatment. For people whose style is cramped by hat head or oily scalp, try customizing your conditioning routine. Still begin your shower with your shampoo and conditioning routine, but when it comes to conditioner, apply only from the mid-shaft of your hair to your ends. This will leave room for some of your natural oils.
Don't Share Your Secrets!
If you're one of those women who says, "Oh, I got these on sale, they were on the discount rack" when complimented on your new clothes, keep this to yourself! I don't think it will be as well received if you say, "Well, you should have seen how greasy my hair was this morning, until I dried the oil up with baby powder" when complimented on your "second day" hair!
