Don’t you just wish you could have a good hair day every single day? As nice as that sounds, bad hair days are just part of life. They’re inevitable and they will happen when you least expect it the most. Sometimes, bad hair days happen on the most inopportune day. You can’t prevent them but the good thing is that you can fix them. Flyaway hair is one of the most common bad hair day problems. Thankfully, they’re one of the easiest and quickest to fix as well. Here are some tips for dealing with flyaway hair.
- Use an anti-static hair brush – static is one of the major causes of flyaway hair so a good long term fix for this is to get your hands on a good anti static hair brush. Most anti static brushes, the ones with good quality anyway, cost a lot more than the regular hair brush but think of this as an investment for your hair. If you ever notice your hair starting to flyaway due to static, a few strokes using this kind of brush will get the job done for you. Some of the best brands out there for anti static brushes are Denman and Kent.
- Try Static Guard – can’t fit a good anti-static brush in to your budget just yet? Don’t worry, you can still fight flyaway hair with just your regular brush as long as you have some Static Guard on hand. Static Guard is a product that you spritz on to any hairbrush to help treat flyaway hair. You can also spritz some on to your hats, bonnets, beanies, headscarves or whatever else it is that you put on to your hair, be it as an accessory or to help warm you up. You can buy Static Guard from your local stores and pharmacies like QVC, CVS, Target, Walmart, Walgreens and you can find it online as well.
- Brush your hair with a toothbrush – now, this tip may sound crazy but believe me, it works! In fact, this is one of the secrets of hairstylists backstage while dolling up their models. If you plan on wearing your hair sleek and tight and you find some hairs starting to stand up and flyaway, just run a toothbrush (lightly misted with hairspray) over that area and watch it blend in with the rest of your hair.
- Keep a flyaway tamer in handy – there are so many hair products out there that are meant to help you deal with flyaway hair – from oils to serums to gels and mists – so take advantage of these and make sure you always have a bottle with you wherever you go.
- Embrace messy hairstyles – this summer, loosen up and forget the idea of sporting sleek hairstyles. Instead, embrace messy hairstyles. They’re not only super sexy, they make a great excuse to not care about flyaway hair as well. No time to deal with a bad hair day featuring the worst flyaways you’ve had ever? Go ahead and comb through your hair using your fingers and put your hair up in a messy ponytail or bun and you’re good to go.
