20 Of The Best Hair Tips

  • Concentrate On The Ends

    Unless you have really dry scalp, most of use don’t need the extra moisture conditioner provides on our roots. Our scalp naturally produces oil every day, so adding any extra can give your hair a greasy look, especially if you don’t shampoo every day. For the best results, try to apply your conditioner on the bottom 3/4 of your hair, really concentrating on the ends.

  •  Spray Your Bobby Pins

    Do your bobby pins tend to slide out? Mine do! In fact, I never use my bobby pins without a quick spray of hairspray or dry shampoo first. It gives them a little extra grip so you don’t have to worry about your hair style falling out.

    Place your bobby pins on a paper towel or tissue, give them a light spray, and then allow them to dry for a minute or two before inserting them into your hair. This is especially helpful on fine, straight and thin hair.

  • Switch To Silk

    I think that most of us sleep on a cotton pillow case, but there are so many benefits to switching to silk or satin. Not only is it better for your skin, but it does wonders for your hair! Cotton robs your hair of moisture, is more likely to cause bed head (especially if you have bangs), and is much harsher on your hair, causing damage and split ends. It doesn’t seem like it would make much of a difference, but we sleep on it every night, so it adds up. Silk and satin pillow cases also feel luxurious — definitely worth the extra expense!

  • Massage Your Scalp

    Giving yourself a scalp massage in the shower every morning may seem like a waste of time, but it really does stimulate your hair growth and enhance the strength of your roots. So, if you’re growing your hair out, try to do this every day! Why not? It feels great! Did you know that the increased blood flow to your scalp from a massage can also put you in a better mood, reduce stress, and relieve pain by improving circulation? Sounds like it’s worth every minute.

  • Use a Wide-Tooth Comb

    Oops! I’ve been making this mistake for years — combing the tangles out of my wet hair with a paddle brush. After washing your hair, use a wide-tooth comb to get those tangles out instead. The comb doesn’t tug and pull at your hair like a regular brush, so it safely and easily removes tangles with less damage. If you are really prone to tangles, consider leaving a comb in the shower, and use it while you still have conditioner in your hair to remove any stubborn tangles.

  • Fake a Super Long Ponytail

    I wear a ponytail just about every day. How have I lived so long without knowing this secret?! There’s nothing sexier than a super long and full ponytail. And, I have so much hair I think this little trick would work great on me.

  • Use Spin Pins

    If you like to put your hair up in a bun, you should give these pins a spin! It only takes two to hold up even the thickest of hair. This is a great alternative to using 3 dozen bobby pins to keep that perfect bun in place. I’ve purchased them from both Target and Walmart. I’m certain they are also sold online or at beauty supply stores.

  •  Say Yes To Lazy Days

    We all have those lazy days, where the idea of standing in front of the mirror messing with our mane is just not going to happen. Or, those morning when you wake up late and just don’t have the time. Quick tip: keep a spray bottle handy on your bathroom counter, and use it to quickly fix bed head. This is especially helpful if you have bangs like me! Sometimes I wake up and my bangs are sticking straight up. Instead of washing, drying and styling my hair, I just give my bangs a quick spray and then use a hair dryer and round brush to make them as good as new!

  • Fake A Fuller Ponytail

    Hey, not all of you were blessed with horse hair, and that’s ok. Just fake it! Add that bump and fullness to an otherwise flat ponytail with this simple trick

  • 10. Brush Before You Wash

    Most of us have never even considered the idea of brushing our hair before we jump in the shower, but it makes sense. We lose a lot of hair during the washing process, and guess where all of that hair goes? Down the drain! To reduce clogs, brush before you wash, especially if you are prone to tangles.

  • 17. Easy Beach curles

    Dry your hair and get those pretty waves all in just one step! I LOVE this idea because it gives you a more natural wave. I don’t like to look like I’ve spent hours in front of the mirror curling and perfecting my curles.my hair is natural curly

  • 11. Wavy Side Down

    But wait, isn’t that putting it in upside down? You would think so, but that’s what the wavy part of the bobby pin was designed for — the wavy part of a bobby pin grabs the hair, while the straight part holds it down. This way also looks better if your bobby pins are exposed!

  • 12. No-Heat Curls Do Exist

    We all know that our heating tools cause damage to our hair. If only there was a way to get a natural looking curl without them. Hmmm… Well, there is! If you like to wash your hair in the morning, this one won’t work for you, but you’d be surprised at the natural curls you get from just sleeping with your hair tucked in and around a head band. 

  • 13. Camouflage Your Roots

    Listen up, blondies! If it’s been a while since your last salon visit, there are a few ways to camouflage those dark roots. Whether your hair is freshly clean or not, spray them with dry shampoo, and then style your hair with a messy side part. Just zig zag your part a bit with a fine-tooth comb to help conceal those roots until your next hair appointment.

  • 14. Tame Fly-Aways 

    You don’t always necessarily want to spray your entire head of hair to tame a couple of fly-aways! To combat those little hairs that won’t stay put, keep an old toothbrush handy and spray it with hairspray to easily target your fly-aways without stiffening your entire style.

  • 15. Know Your Curls

    Did you know there are a number of wrapping techniques to achieve a different type of curl? Yeah, me neither! I always just do it the same way. You’ll need a curling wand for best results, but this visual certainly helps you achieve your desired results. 

  • 16. Let Them Absorb

    The average woman spends about $300 a year or more on styling products, but most of us are not reaping the full benefits! Just like you let your conditioner sit in your hair a little longer to give it time to work it’s magic, the same is true for your styling products. After combing your hair out of the shower, apply your products right away and let them absorb into your strands for about 10 minutes before you break out your hair dryer and other various styling tools.

  • 18. Dry Before You Style

    When you place a heating tool on wet or damp hair, it creates very hot steam, and causes slow but inevitable damage. Before you break out your curling iron or flat iron, play it safe and make sure your hair is completely dry.

  • 19. Put An End To Split Ends


    Here is my favorite all-natural “split ender”. Mix together one egg yolk, 3 tbsp of olive oil, and 1 tbsp of honey. Let this mixture sit on your ends for at least an hour before washing, and repeat every couple of weeks.

  • All of these brushes! What are they for?

    1. Paddle  — A paddle brush is the most versatile brush, but it is especially helpful if you have long and/or thick hair. It can manage a lot of hair all at once and smooths it down for a sleeker look. If you lack volume, you may want to consider a different type of brush.

    2. Wide-Tooth Comb — Because the teeth have such large gaps, these combs are ideal for combing tangles out of wet hair without causing any damage. You might also want to use one in place of a brush if you have frizzy hair.

    3. Fine-Tooth Comb — these combs are great for teasing, cre

  • 4. Thermal — these brushes work with your dryer, locking in heat. They create a faster drying time and allow you to easily curl and smooth your hair under.

    5. Boar Bristled — These bristles are gentle and redistribute oils throughout your hair, bringing out it’s natural shine. They are ideal for fine to normal hair because they also give you a little extra oomph!

    6. Skinny Round  — This brush is great for bangs or short hair. It smooths your hair while drying and helps manage shorter pieces of hair.

  • . Large Round  — This brush can straighten or curl your hair while drying, depending on how you use it. A larger round brush is ideal for creating volume to otherwise flat hair.

    8. Half Radial — This brush is perfect for shorter styles such as a bob when you like to have your hair curved up or under on the ends.

    9. Vented  — These brushes are ideal when blow drying your hair because they provide an apple amount of air flow and help create volume.
