Bad Hair Day? 5 Quick Tips To Make Tomorrow A Better One

Bad hair days affect almost everyone even if you religiously follow a hair care regimen. There are days when your hair has a mind of its own and gets really unruly even if you've brushed it a hundred times. Don't worry about your hair being possessed. The usual culprit for bad hair days is something more tangible – poor hair management. Aside from this, there are external elements that we can't really control – pollution, extreme temperatures, and humidity. What you can do is practice good hair management skills and arm yourselves with the right hair care products. Here are some quick tips on how to make tomorrow a better hair day:

1. Take It Easy When Using Blow Dryers

Blow dryers, when used excessively, can damage your hair. The heat coming from blow dryers can lead to dryness, stripping your hair of its natural oils. The result is dull and limp-looking locks, not to mention split ends that can only be removed when you get a haircut. Improper use of blow dryers can also make your hair brittle, leading to hair breakage. If you can't go out of your house without blow drying your hair, try to use a low heat setting as much as possible. Try to refrain from blow drying your hair every day to give your locks time to recover.

2. Use A Conditioner

To make the next day a better hair day, use a conditioner that can help your locks restore proper moisture. Just make sure that you don't leave any traces of conditioner on your hair, by rinsing properly, to prevent product build-up. Using a hair conditioner regularly can also protect your locks from the harsh effects of heating devices such as hair irons and blow dryers.

3. Avoid Hair care Products With Strong Ingredients

Another possible culprit of a bad hair day is the excessive use of hair care products that are filled with strong and harsh chemicals such as alcohol. These products should not be used daily because they can damage your hair in the long run.

4. Opt For Natural Hair Care Products

Instead of using hair care products made of harsh chemicals, try to opt for products with natural ingredients. Hair oils made of vitamin E are good choices since this nutrient can nourish your hair and may promote proper blood circulation within your scalp. Since there are many natural hair care products to choose from, you can quickly replace your chemical-based hair care regimen. You can even create your own homemade hair care recipe in a snap since some items found in your kitchen are good hair conditioners. These items include essential oils such as ylang-ylang, rosemary and lemon juice.

5. Avoid Brushing Your Hair When Wet

If you just had a bad hair day today and you want tomorrow to be a better one, try using a wide-toothed comb to untangle wet. Since your hair is more sensitive when wet, it is more prone to damage and breakage. To avoid this, comb your hair when wet and brush it only when it is completely dry.

A Few More Ideas...

Bad hair days may seem unavoidable but they can be easily managed with the right hair care solution. Aside from good daily hair care habits, eating right is also a way of making your hair less prone to dryness, damage, and breakage. Proper diet and nutrition will always have an effect on your hair and scalp. If you love eating chips, try to slow down and grab some carrot sticks instead. If your hair is always dry, try to increase your water intake aside from using a hair conditioner regularly. Having enough liquids can make your scalp and hair look vibrant and healthy-looking. Never underestimate the effect of proper nutrients and vitamins on your hair. Aside from vitamin E, vitamin A is also a good anti-oxidant for your hair.

When using hair accessories such as bands, clips, or ties, make sure that they are not too tight. Tying up your hair with a very tight band can lead to poor circulation and hair damage. Don't forget to remove any hair accessory before hitting the sack because sleeping with a headband on is really not a good idea.
