Hack #1: Fake beach waves with an invisibobble hair tie
This trick will help you achieve beach waves without reaching out for any heat-styling tools. Yes, you read that right! As soon as you’re out of the shower, part your hair down the middle, and make two top-knots on each side. Secure these buns with an invisibobble hair tie. Now, either let your hair air-dry or use a blow-dryer to speed things up. Once your hair is completely dry, untie your hair and finger-comb the strands. Voila! You’ve successfully achieved soft, beach waves.
Hack #2: Use apple cider vinegar in the middle of your hair wash
If you’re big on natural, home remedies when it comes to your own beauty routine, then you’re going to love this DIY hair gloss. All you need to do is mix one part apple cider vinegar to three parts water. Once you’ve washed your hair, tilt your head back, pour the mixture slowly over your scalp making sure you keep your mouth and eyes closed. Massage the mixture into your roots before rinsing and conditioning as usual. Whether you have dry, straw-like strands, dull hair or product build-up, ACV is the answer!
Hack #3: Sleep with dry shampoo on
If you are struggling to pump up the volume of your fine hair, then this hack is sure going to give your hair life! Instead of applying dry shampoo in the mornings before heading out the door, we suggest you sleep with dry shampoo on. Just before hitting the sheets, spritz some dry shampoo in your hair. As you sleep, the dry shampoo will work into your roots without transferring any natural oils or bacteria from your fingers onto your hair. This little trick won’t weigh your hair down, making it look thinner or finer.
Hack #4: Use a toothbrush to tame pesky flyaways
Do you know what brings your hair game down right in the middle of the day? Flyaways! Usually, tiny baby hairs are the ones that don’t lie flat against the rest of your hair. These turn into pesky flyaways, ruining your hairstyle. To tame flyaways on the go, all you need to do is grab a clean toothbrush and spray it with a little bit of hairspray. Then, take the toothbrush and very gently comb back any flyaways. This way, your hairstyle will remain intact all day.
Hack #5: Add volume by backcombing your locks in sections
Not everyone is blessed with a voluminous mane. But, don’t lose hope already! Here’s a trick that will help you achieve thicker, fuller locks, all with the help of just a fine-tooth comb. Yes, you read that right! Instead of teasing just the top layer of your hair at the crown, split your hair into multiple sections, and then tease each section. Yes, it’s that simple!
