These Hair Hacks Won't Cost A Thing

These Hair Hacks Won't Cost A Thing

Healthy hair and immaculate hairstyles don't always have to come at a price. 

Some of the best ways to care for your hair and style your hair start with the everyday products you have in your home.

Whether you're low on supplies or not ready to empty your wallet on a bunch of hair products this month, here are some cost-effective ways to achieve your hair goals. 

 

DIY Brush Cleaner

When was the last time you cleaned your hairbrush? 

A dirty hairbrush can spread dust and old hair grease back onto your clean hair (gross). 

Make sure you clean your hairbrush every so often when you start to notice it's looking a little grime-y. 

Start by using a fine-tooth comb to remove old hair from your brush. 

Then get a toothbrush, apply some shampoo onto your brush and scrub the brush with the toothbrush in hot water to give your brush a thorough rinse.

The Scalp Exfoliator

When we look for ways to make our hair grow, we're often looking for products to put on our hair.

Yet the best way to promote hair growth is to take care of the source of hair growth; the scalp!

Just as exfoliating your skin should be a regular part of your skincare routine, your scalp needs to be regularly exfoliated too. 

Exfoliating your scalp cleanses the scalp of natural oil build-up and product build-up that can block the hair follicles, preventing hair growth. 

To exfoliate your scalp you'll need a hairbrush with soft, dense bristles.

Section by section, gently rub your brush in a circular motion until you've exfoliated your entire scalp. 

Boar bristle brushes are great for exfoliating as the bristles are soft and dense. 

It's also a great type of brush for fine hair. 

The T-Shirt Hair Dryer

It's no secret that your regular shower towel isn't so great for drying your hair with. 

The texture of a shower towel is too rough for hair.

Especially, rubbing your hair dry with a towel all the time can cause serious breakage.

Instead, use an old t-shirt to dry your hair. 

Simply wrap a t-shirt around your hair and gently squeeze the water out until your hair is no longer dripping wet. 

 

The Frizz-Free Ponytail

To get rid of fly-aways when you pull your hair back in a ponytail, spray some hairspray on a toothbrush and brush back any frizz or stray hairs. 

This is every hair stylist's trick to a smooth, sleek ponytail. 

 

The DIY Dry Shampoo

Your hair desperately needs a wash, and you're out of dry shampoo. 

What do you do?

Use baby powder instead, it works just like dry shampoo.

You can apply baby powder on your roots the night before, then in the morning use a hairdryer to blow away the powder.

This will remove any excess white cast from the powder as well as giving your hair extra volume.

Your hair will be left looking as good as if it were freshly washed.  

 

The Ultimate Bobby Pin Hack

Spray your bobby pins with hairspray before using them in your hair.

This will prevent the pins from slipping out, and make your hairstyle last longer!

If you have thin hair this little hair hack is a game-changer.

 

Frizz-Taming Spray

Need to tame dry, frizzy hair?

Apple cider vinegar is what you need. 

Frizz is due to hair cuticles that haven't closed properly, so a low ph substance like Apple cider vinegar will help your cuticles flatten. 

All you need is 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar diluted with a cup of water. Put the water in a spray bottle and spray it on your hair.

If you need to dry your hair quickly, blast cold air from your hairdryer to dry your hair without any frizz.

 

DIY Detangling Spray 

Combine a teaspoon of coconut oil with water in a spray bottle.

Spray all over your hair as a leave-in conditioner then comb your hair.

Coconut oil is a natural detangler and conditioner and will help smooth out your cuticles when you don't have time to condition your hair in the shower.
