We love hair, but let’s be honest…it can be a serious hassle. Sometimes you just aren’t in the mood to spend an hour on Pinterest to find the perfect hair how-to…and that’s okay! When laziness strikes (and it will), knowing the right hair tricks can make your life much, much easier.
Say Bye-Bye to Static
Use dryer sheets to get rid of that annoying static in your hair. Take a sheet and smooth it over your hair from root to ends. And don’t forget to rub it over your comb to completely rid yourself of static cling.
Prevent Hair Damage With The Right Pillowcase
We often toss and turn in our slumber, which creates friction and can wreak havoc on our hair. To prevent hair breakage caused by this friction, switch your cotton pillowcase for a silk one – your tresses are sure to thank you!
Tame Baby Hairs and Flyaways
We know how maddening baby hairs can be, but there is a way to take back control. Spray a toothbrush with strong hold hairspray (we recommend our Mighty Hair Spray) and brush down the baby hairs and flyaways with the rest of your hair. It’s time you show them who’s really boss!
Instead of towel drying your strands after a shower, try using a cotton t-shirt. Towels tend to cause friction, which leads to frizz. A cotton t-shit will absorb water just as well, without the friction. If you’re blow-drying your hair, keep the heat on a low setting. Cool air keeps your hair cuticles sealed, avoiding a frizzy mess.
Brush Before You Wash
Run a brush through your locks before jumping in the shower. While it might seem silly, your brush will capture loose hairs that otherwise would have gone down the drain and over time, lead to a clog. Not only will it keep your drain clean, it will cut your after shower brush time in half! For a truly tangle-free experience, use our L-eau de Mare Detangling Brush and save your tresses the stress.
Make Your Bobby Pins Stick
If you’re like the rest of the population, you’re using your bobby pins the wrong way! The correct way to use a bobby pin is wavy side down. Not only will it look better in your hair, it also offers a much stronger hold. If your bobby pins are still slipping out, try spraying them lightly with hairspray or dry shampoo.
