Top 3 Hair Disasters You Can Avoid

hair disasterHave you ever had a really bad hair experience where you were left wondering who to turn to and how quickly can you fix it? Maybe you have incredibly staticky hair that you just cannot control or your bangs were botched? Well I have found some helpful tips to help you out in your time of need.

Staticky Hair

Let’s face it, staticky hair is something many of us point and laugh at unless you’re the one who has it. There are a few easy tricks to keep from getting a lot of static in your hair or if you already have it, how to tame it.

One trick I use is I take a Bounce fabric sheet and lightly rub it on my hair. I wouldn’t do it too much because you don’t want your hair to look like it’s slicked down, but just do a light pat all around your hair and you should be good to go. Also, you can take some Static Guard and spray it on your hairbrush and then use that to brush your hair. The oil content in the Static Guard will remove the static. Finally, make sure you fully hydrate your hair, the dryer it is, the better chances you have of getting static and bad!

A Bad Dye Job

At least every woman has had one bad at-home color job happen to them. So what can you do to reverse it? You can actually wash it out with a product called, Color Oops that you can find it at your local beauty stores. Color Oops has a lot of detergents that will make the color fade quickly.

If you can’t find this product and you need a quick solution, just style it so the color is hidden or not as noticeable. If your hair is long enough, you can always put it up and it might look like you’ve added highlights to your hair. If the color is really bad, see a pro. Sometimes the first two options are not doable and you need to visit your hairstylist, especially if you have an important presentation or event to attend the next day.

Someone Botched Your Bangs

There is actually a product called Clip-n-Bangs that you can add to your own bangs. They are like short Indian hair extensions. They will run around $35 and you can find them at You can also bring another section of hair down and then trim them. When you are cutting your bangs, make sure to do it when they are dry, not wet. If they are wet, when you trim them, your bangs will shrink as they dry and then they might be too short and you’ll be back at square one.

Whether you have hair that stands on its own, your at-home-coloring job went wrong or someone cut your bangs too short, now you have a few ideas to help you in your moment of crisis and keep you looking great under pressure.
