Make Your Style Last (Days!)
Want to make your good hair day last longer? Well, listen up because we have some expert tips for you! It all comes down to three simple steps to get your hair style to last, and look great for days! Train your hair, prepare your hair, and protect your hair — it’s that simple!
Train your hair
Oily hair is probably the main reason that your hair style doesn’t last. It makes your hair look flat, and dirty, and just an all-around hot mess. So, we want you to stop washing your hair.
Washing your hair everyday causes your hair to feel like it needs to produce more oil because you are stripping the oil from your hair everyday. Your hair can definitely be trained to produce less oil, but in order for that to happen, you need to take the hair washing down a few notches. Start out with washing your hair every-other day and using dry shampoo on the in-between days if you feel like your hair is getting greasy. Slowly work your way to washing your hair every third day, and trust us, your hair will thank you! Just a tip — hair that has not been freshly washed holds a style better and longer!
Prepare your hair
If you want your hairstyle to last, you need to make sure you have the right tools. If you use a heat styling tool, try using a ceramic tool. It will help your hair stay curled longer and look really beautiful. Using the proper styling products on your hair is also really helpful. Be sure to top off your look with some touchable texture/hair spray.
Protect your hair
Keeping your hair protected is probably the most important thing to remember if you want to make your hairstyle last. One of the easiest and best protective hairstyles to wear while you are sleeping is a loose bun, secured with large clips. This is amazing, especially if you have your hair curled. Simply swirl your hair into a loose bun on the top of your head and secure it with two large clips. Definitely do not use hair ties while you sleep — your hair will become very damaged. In the morning, take down your bun, re-curl a few pieces and you are ready to go!
