15 Life Hacks You Should Know To Reach Your Hair Goals
These 15 hair hacks may be easy to follow, but they yield big results when it comes to achieving your hair goals.
1. Use a Shower Filter.
When you think of water filters, pure drinking water is probably what comes to mind first. Water filters specially designed to fit over your showerhead are actually a great way to achieve your hair goals. Not only are showerhead filters affordable, but effective at softening your hair as well.
2. Massage Your Scalp.
Massaging your scalp is one of the best ways to stimulate hair growth at the follicles. You can even purchase a scalp massager made for the job!
3. Hydrate Your Scalp.
Hair health begins at the scalp, so choose an ultra-hydrating shampoo like the Cashmere Hydrating Shampoo from Sudzz to start your hair care routine off the right way.
4. Rinse with Club Soda.
Club soda is a fast and affordable hair trick that pays major dividends. Simply pour the club soda over your hair for a naturally clarifying rinse that gets rid of buildup instantly.
5. Use a Wooden Hair Brush.
While plastic brushes are easy to find, wooden hair brushes are better for your hair's overall health. Wooden bristles naturally eliminate static when you brush and prevent your hair from snagging. Rough brushing is one of the leading causes of split ends and frizz, so this simple trick can dramatically improve your hair's health. The wooden bristles also move oils from the top of your hair to its ends for natural conditioning.
6. Make an Anti-Static Brush.
You can create your own anti-static hair brush by placing a dryer sheet on top of your hair brush. The dryer sheet will add a light, pleasant scent to your hair while eliminating static.
7. Part Your Hair on Different Sides.
Parting your hair on the same side can lead to hair loss around your part. Instead, try switching up your look by alternating between side and center parts. A side part is also a great way to hide oily hair.
8. Make Your Own Hair Blotters.
Don't let oily hair get you down! Oil blotting sheets for the face can be used to blot oil from your hair as well. Smooth the tissue paper down over the hair around your face for a quick oil-busting hair hack.
9. Enjoy a Quick Steam.
Harness the power of steam for healthier hair by dividing your hair into two even sections. Cover each section in a plastic bag after applying your conditioner. The steam from the shower will help the conditioner sink in without having to wait around.
10. Glamorous Curls.
Get runway-ready waves by wrapping a small section of hair around your G2 Ceramic and Titanium Hair Styling Iron from Chi, and spray with Kenra's Platinum Hot Spray 20, it gives the ultimate thermal protection with long-lasting, firm hold. This will give your hair voluminous S-curves that can easily be styled any way you want them.
11. Use Heat Sparingly.
If your hair is fine or thin, avoid using heat over 350 degrees Fahrenheit. This will keep your hair from drying out or becoming damaged by heat.
12. Clean Your Styling Tools.
Regularly cleaning your styling tools with rubbing alcohol will help prevent product from building up on your brushes and heat tools. Excess product left on a styling tool can make your hair feel dull and lifeless even after washing it.
13. Let Your Tools Cool.
When using hot tools, be sure to take the time to let your tools cool after using them. If you happen to be running short on time, you can cool most styling tools under cold water.
14. Make Your Own Hair Lightener.
A quick spritz of water infused with lemon juice is a natural way to lighten your hair. Simply go outside in the sun for the lightening spray to take effect.
15. Use Bobby Pins.
Always position the bumpy end of a bobby pin against your head and let the flat end face outwards for a better grip.
With these simple hair hacks, you'll be on your way to achieving your hair goals in no time.
