6 Hacks for Your Best Hair This Week
If you’re in a hair rut, the idea of a good hair day can seem like a fairytale. But while there’s no magic spell that’ll transform your hair, there are certain products you can use and styling techniques you can try to set yourself up for strand success. From using dry shampoo when your hair isn’t greasy to investing in a good heat protectant, try the five tricks below to say goodbye to bad hair days.

Choose the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair. 

Just like you choose your skin care based on your skin type, you should consider your hair type when shopping for shampoo and conditioner. Using the right formula can be the difference between limp and voluminous strands or frizzy and frizz-free.

Protect your hair from the heat.

No matter how skilled you are at achieving a salon-quality blowout or perfect curls, your hair won’t look its best if it’s heat-damaged. Always prime your hair with a heat protecting-product like the Carol's Daughter Monoi Multi-Styling Milk (which offers protection up to 450 degrees) before styling. 

Get your shine on.

Nothing says healthy hair like a glassy sheen. We’re all about oil-based products that nourish dry, damaged hair for a natural shine over time and give it an instant glassy boost. Try the Redken Shine Like Glass Spray

Use dry shampoo.

Dry shampoo can do so much more than just make your second- or third-day less oily. Try using it to amp up volume at the crown or add a spritz in the lengths to give it texture and hold. Our new fave is the Garnier Fructis Texturizing Invisible Dry Shampoo, which texturizes, absorbs oil and makes your hair smell like vacation. 

Try a messy bun.
