Five products to fix static hair

We’ve all had those moments.

You’ve just finished blow drying your hair and then those annoying bits that always stick up automatically ping sky-high as if to say: “we’re still here, guys!”

The good news is, you’re not alone. Everyone gets fuzzy hair, whether it’s from over-styling, excessive hairbrush yanking, too tight ponytails, menopausal hair thinning or even fragile post-baby hair.

The even better news is, you can fix it with these five anti-frizz products…

How to make every day a good hair day

Good Hair Day

We all know the feeling… our hair won’t behave and, pathetic as it seems, we can’t help feeling that it’s ruined the rest of the day.

But help is at hand.

Just follow our four tips and you’ll never have another bad hair day again. We promise!

Use protection

The easiest way to ensure that you have a good hair day is to use a heat protectant spray after you wash your hair, and before you use any styling tools like straighteners, curlers or hairdryers. Not only will this protect your hair from any heat damage, but it will also create the perfect base for you to create the perfect look.

Shiny happy hair

We all know that shiny hair equals healthy hair - just look at Meghan Markle! So if you want to make every day a Good Hair Day, simply invest in a good hair mask and make it a regular ritual to deeply condition your locks.

Add volume

Gentle backcombing (think a little tussle rather than full on 80s style) can help your hair look full of life. To do this, start at the roots and tease the hair over your brush and then give it a blast with your favourite hairspray.

Fake it

Even when you’re having an off day you can still bring it back with some handy handbag essentials like dry shampoo and hair serum.

STEP ONE

Wash your hair and while it’s still damp, spritz with a heat protector product like TRESemme protect heat defence styling spray. Apply a volumizing mousse like Bumble and Bumble thickening full form mousse to create hold and volume.

STEP TWO

Dry the hair with a paddle brush, brushing the hair in different directions. Once the hair is 70 per cent dry, section the hair into four with your preferred parting.

STEP THREE

Take a medium sized ceramic brush and starting at the nape, blow dry sections of hair no bigger than your brush. Focus on creating root lift and volume at the roots, yet a smooth and straight finish through the mid-lengths and ends.

STEP FOUR

When you’ve finished blow drying, take a vertical section starting at the hairline from the parting to the front of the ear. In a two inch section, curl the hair rotating the irons in a half rotation, curling away from the face. Continue taking vertical sections working your way towards the centre of the nape area. Begin on the opposite side of the head and repeat the process, curling away from the face.

STEP FIVE

To finish the look, use your paddle brush to brush out the curls and mess them up a bit with your fingertips. Finally set the style with a fine hold mist hairspray such as L’Oreal Ellnett extra strength hairspray.
