Bad Hair Day

Sometimes, no matter how hard we try, prepare, stand in front of the mirror with squinted morning tired eyes...we are just...well bound to have a bad hair day! There's something in the way we wake up those mornings that we just can't shake the hair problems and the nest that has settled into our hair the night before!
So.. what do you do? Wear a hat? Curl up in a ball? Stay home?


I have found something that works. I repeat... something actually works!

So, I'll cut to the chase. I take showers at night, and often straighten my hair. I wake up in the morning with a terrible bump in my hair the height of a skyscraper. Even though I try to straighten it out, it still decides to stick around. Without taking a shower again, heres what you can do!

I bought one of the spray bottles above from The Container Store (you can also get spray bottles from your local drug store.) I fill it up with water and spray my roots. Seems simple right? Then I will re-dry my roots, and perfect them with a round brush!
Its that easy. I think that this is great to do on the bottom of the hair as well, to smooth out the ends!

And thats it. $1 container bottle, free tap water, and you have yourself a hairdo quick fix!

  7. haha I knot my hair in a french braid when I'm having a bad hair day, which happens more often that I'd like to admit. I've definitely employed your technique though - wet down and redry problem areas. The problem, of course, is when the whole mess of hair is a problem area. Then it's french braid time! Love your story though!!
