1 Put Your Hair up

Put Your Hair upOne of the best tips for a bad hair day is just to get it all out of your face. You can either put it all in a sleek ponytail for a fierce look or just put it in a messy bun for a more laid back feel. To be honest as a high school student, every morning feels like a start of a bad hair day, so these simple hairdos really conceal my hair and save me some embarrassment! They are easy and quick, and can even look like you put some effort into them.

2 Get Rid of the Oils

Get Rid of the OilsThe reason for your bad hair might be due to you skipping a wash. Here you are trying to improve the health of your hair by washing it every other day but it only gives you the inconvenience of flat and dead hair. However not to worry! Simple baby powder or dry shampoo can absorb all of those natural oils and put more life into those dreadful locks. This quick fix will surely fix your dilemma.

3 Avoid Dry Split Ends

Avoid Dry Split EndsIf your dead ends are just not having it today and you can’t think of a way to get rid of the dry and damaged look, try to use a dime sized pump of hair serum or hair conditioner, rub it through your fingers and gently spread it on your split ends. As a result, they will appear smoother and healthier until you get the time to get rid of the damaged ends!

4 Get Some Volume

Get Some VolumeOne of my main problems is flat hair; I have very thin and straight hair, making it almost impossible for me to add some body. However, what does help on those days when my hair is extremely slicked to my scalp is a volumizing mousse or even dry shampoo. I usually use a small pump of the mousse and apply it to my roots, giving my hair more volume, but other days I just spray some dry shampoo at my scalp, and see a noticeable difference!

5 Tame Those Fly Always

Tame Those Fly AlwaysSome of you may have those days when your baby hairs act like antennas and refuse to come down, but there is actually a really quick fix. Just take a toothbrush that you don’t need, spray a little bit of hair spray on it and smooth the fly aways with it. You’ll notice that it looks more natural than when using gel.

6 Get Rid of Dull Hair
