Dealing With a Bad Hair Day

By Kristy Scott

You surely had those days when your hair does not do you justice as it cannot be styled the way you want it to be or profiled the way you want it to look. You may even consider bad hair days to be worse than having a stomach ache. But who is to blame for these unwanted days when your hair is simply out of control and stubbornly unmanageable?

Poor hair management is the primary culprit to many bad hair days. Though there are some things you simply cannot control like dry weather or windy days, you can still combat them by knowing how to take care of your hair. First, think of what you do to your hair every day. How many times in a week do you use hot rollers, hair dryers, thongs, flat irons, and chemicals to make it look the way you want?

Though many consider hair tools as the main causes of this bad days, they can actually be a solution to the problem. It is sometimes true that dryness and breakage can be a result of too much use of these tools but it all comes down to how you care for your hair. Choosing the right tools to use can also mean the difference between a dry, brittle hair and a smooth, soft one. Some revolutionary tools have been created to actually help keep your hair healthy and strong.

Bad hair days can be prevented with the use of moisturizers or conditioners to safeguard it against dry weather or treatments which can damage it. Again, it all boils down to how you care for your hair. Electricity can ravage and render it into a frizz but by moisturizing as frequent as necessary will eliminate all frizziness.

Another tip to avoid bad hair day is to wash and rinse it properly. Make sure that you do not leave traces of shampoo or conditioner in your hair as it will just contribute to a more uncontrollable hair. As much as possible, rinse your hair with the use of cool tepid water to help lock the moisture in and prepare it for the use of dryers when styling. Try to towel dry your hair for a few minutes before styling it with the use of your favorite tools.

Choosing the right hairbrushes can also help you combat bad hair days. Refrain from using combs with rigid ends; use a wide-tooth comb instead to define your hair. If you have curly hair, simply use your fingers to separate curls. Sometimes allowing your hair to fall naturally straight or naturally wavy is a good way of fighting unwanted bad days for it.

Dealing with unruly hair is simple, just remember to use your tools like dryers properly, wash and rinse your hair well, avoid coarse ended hairbrushes, and use moisturizers to keep protect your hair from damage. Once you give it the best care it deserves, you will always leave your house with the most manageable and controlled hair ever.
