3 Tips to Survive a Bad Hair Day

bad hair day

We have all had bad hair days. We wake up in the morning, realise our hair is a complete mess and try our best to make it look good! But no matter what we do, nothing seems to work! And the worst thing is that it always seems to happen when we have an important work meeting or a date with someone we like. What can we do to look good on days like that? Here are a few tips:

messy bun

1. Wear your hair up

If I’m having a bad hair day and no time to wash it, I usually wear my hair up. I like to throw it in a ponytail or a messy bun and sometimes, I jazz it up by wearing a headband or some other cute hair accessory. This way, no one will notice that my hair is having a bad day and people will simply think that messy but chic is the look I was going for.

dry shampoo

2. Dry shampoo/baby powder

Another trick for when I don’t have time to wash my hair is to use a dry shampoo. These contain ingredients like cornstarch or talc that absorb excess oil. I just spray it on my hair, brush it and I’m good to go. My hair may still feel dirty but it’ll look good until I have time to wash it properly. If you don’t have dry shampoo, you can use baby powder. Just rub it on your hair and it will absorb oil while giving you some volume too.

wearing a cute hat

3. Wear a hat

I’m not a hat person but when all else fails or I’m in such a rush that I don’t even have the time to style my hair in a ponytail, I’ll just grab a hat and run out the door. There are lots of different types of hats out there, in different colors and styles, so you’re sure to find a cute one that’ll look fantastic on you. And in the cold winter months, a hat won’t only cover a bad hair day, but will keep your head warm too.

What do you do when you’re having a bad hair day?

    Meream, I always use powder when I don’t have dry shampoo. It absorbs oil and gives hair a nice lift too :)
