Just like most other bloggers, I love a hacks post. Whether that’s home hacks, beauty hacks, iPhone hacks, hair hacks, anything! There absolutely nothing wrong with making your life easier and that’s what I hope this post will do for you.
It’s the time of year for dry hair and open fires and indoor heating definitely don’t help with that! Protecting our hair from the cold winter elements is something you 100% should be doing and doesn’t require a lot of money or time so there’s no excuse!
Hopefully, my hair hacks below, which I’ve been putting to the test over the last few months, will be able to help you achieve healthy, luscious locks in no time at all.
Lower your shower temperature
I know we all love a nice hot shower after a day in the cold but despite it feeling dreamy and like you never want to get out, it really dries out both your hair and skin. Try turning the temperature down a tad or if you can endure it, quickly blast cold water on your hair just before you get out to seal your hair follicles.
Wash your brushes
It’s easy to forget that you need to take care of your hair brushes just as you would your makeup ones. I regularly wash all of my combs, brushes and clips to avoid a build up of dirt, grease, hair product and whatever else hangs around the roots of my brushes! It doesn’t take long and just involves an old toothbrush and some baby shampoo and I can assure you, your hair will thank you for it!
Use dry shampoo before you go to bed
TRESemmé Volumising Dry Shampoo is basically my best friend most mornings. I guess I’m just really lazy when it comes to washing my hair! What I’ve learnt though is by applying it to your roots before you go to bed, it has time to work its way into your hair by the morning and actually do what it’s supposed to do rather than just making your hair look grey and adding volume!
Snip away the split ends
Get rid of those pesky split ends by twisting small sections of your hair and snipping off the ends that stick out. I do this in between hair cuts to maintain my healthy locks and avoid the dull, dry hair look.
Make pins stay in your hair
If you have soft, straight hair like me and struggle to keep bobby pins in the place you put them in then this is the hack for you. Before you slide them in your hair, simply spray them before with hairspray and leave them to go sticky. Problem over!
Brush before bed
One of my hairdressers once told me that even if I don’t brush my hair in the morning, I must brush it every night. That’s stuck with me now for years and that’s where my trusty Lily England paddle brush* comes into play. I’ve even put away my Tangle Teezer in order to use the brushes pictured.
I’d love to know how you get on with these hacks, hopefully they save you a load of time and pain as they did with me!
