Hacks exist to simplify our lives, and while you may have come across several hacks to date, there are only a couple of hacks that actually work and help make our lives easier. Had it not for some hacks, we would still be struggling to contour our face perfectly or make our locks look shinier. But thankfully, we know of some incredible hacks that actually work and help level up our beauty game. And just because you didn’t have great experiences trying out different hacks previously and turned out to be a great disappointment, it doesn’t mean all the other hacks are there for no reason.
All you need to do is establish a difference between hacks that work and the ones that don’t. Let’s start with hair hacks first. If you always struggle to keep your hair in good shape all the time, then we have got a couple of clever hair hacks that are tried and tested and known to deliver excellent results.
Use conditioner before diving into the pool
Summers are for swimming pools, they provide a much-needed respite from the scorching heat. While taking a dip in the pool certainly helps make the body feel more relaxed and cool, the chlorinated water in the pool can work against your health. It’s a very well-known fact that swimming pools with chlorinated water are known to cause an excessive amount of damage to the hair. Exposing your hair to chlorinated water for prolonged hours may lead to hair damage. One of the easiest ways to prevent hair damage due to chlorinated water is by applying your conditioner to your wet hair before diving into the pool; the product will help coat your strands, thereby preventing chlorinated water from soaking in your locks.
Tame your flyaways with a toothbrush
Both flyaways and baby hair can be incredibly annoying, they can ruin the hairstyles, thereby bringing the entire look down. An easy way to fix this problem is by using your toothbrush to keep these flyaways in place. Take any spare toothbrush, make sure it’s thoroughly clean, and spritz some hairspray on it. Now run the same toothbrush through your hair to make flyaways settle down and make your hairstyle look cleaner and sleeker.
Make your hair smell good
Going too long without hair wash leads to smelly hair, and if you are someone who often finds herself in this situation, then there’s a way to fix this problem. Granting odor from unwashed hair and scalp is considered one of the major turn-offs, you should do something about your unwashed and smelly hair. This simple hack which involves applying perfume on your hair is an easy way to make your hair smell good. But instead of applying your perfume directly on your mane, you should spritz it on your hairbrush and then using the same hairbrush, comb your hair.
