It’s no secret that makeup, hair and fashion all blend beautifully together, but when you’re having a bad hair day, it ruins the entire look. That’s why learning a few clever hair tricks can fix the problem and return your self-esteem right back where it belongs.
We often look at the fashion runway for inspiration from head to toe, eyeing trends we can copy and make our own. Models always seem to have the perfect tresses, partly because they all have a team of beauty transformers who create the ideal illusion.
Who doesn’t desire healthy, shiny and bouncy hair? I know I do.
Check out my Quick Beauty Tips For Bouncy Hair In One Hour Or Less:
Mayonnaise Mask—Trust Us, It Works
If you’ve got the time to sit pretty with a bizarre concoction upon your head, then this is the one, I swear. Mayonnaise and lemon juice are the two-ingredient hair pick-me-up solution to consider. Mix together 1/2 cup of mayonnaise and 2 tbsp. of lemon juice, and slather it on damp hair. Cover it with a plastic shower cap, and shampoo it out in the shower after 20-25 minutes. Then, use your blow-dryer.
Your hair will shine, look full with body and be easy to manage. I think it’s a wonderful mask for hair of any type and condition.
Proper Blow-Dry—Technique Matters
You don’t have to be a professional stylist to achieve big bouncy hair or purchase a super expensive blow dryer. You need to wield your beauty weapon effectively, however, to create some hair manageability.
It’s called “Lift and Dry,” and you can do it successfully. Flip your head up and hold up the front section really high with one hand, while blow drying the roots. Make sure to keep the blow dryer up towards your hands and the ceiling.
You can also buy a hair diffuser attachment that fits on your blow dryer; it’s inexpensive and also dries hair from the roots up, creating volume and bounce. In addition, a diffuser creates depth and texture with lovely beach-y waves that are on-trend.
Fab Bounce-Ability—Curling Iron Can Do
A curling iron performs like magic on dry locks when handled properly. Hair professionals suggest taking thin sections of hair about 1 1/2 inches wide. Without burning your scalp, place the iron as close to the roots of the section, and then rotate the iron 180 degrees.
Next, carefully slide the iron about one and a half inches from your scalp before releasing the section. To avoid any ridges, work fast.
If you’re all thumbs when it comes to styling tools and hair care recipes, you can always invest in some pretty, clip-on hair extensions. So many celebrities adorn their natural hair with faux pieces, and none of us ever know their little secret.
Extensions deliver instant length, weight, move-ability and tons of bounce
