Get a haircut
Get a great haircut to ensure your tresses will behave well. Tell your stylist the type of hairstyle you want and the time you can spend on that look. If you can’t keep up with your current style, make adjustments.
Develop a routine
Develop a daily routine for grooming your hair and stick to it. Allow adequate time, since rushing could cause you to skip styling techniques that result in good hair days.
Tame annoying flyaways and static by rubbing your hair with a dryer sheet. It will help strands stick together to make styling easier and give you great-smelling hair to boot.
Spray in dry shampoo
Apply dry shampoo – shampoo that sprays on dry and brushes out – onto roots if your hair is greasy or flat. Fluff with your fingers and then brush for an oil-absorbing root lift.
Use the right products
Use the right products for your hair type. Too many bad hair days may mean you’re using the wrong products or neglecting your tresses. Your hair stylist can help you select the right products.
Skip the shampoo
Don’t shampoo every day. The extra oil in hair makes it easier to style and prevents frizz.
Consider clip-in hair extensions
Consider clip-in hair extensions. They’re less expensive than permanent extensions, they're easy to use, and they add body and highlights to your mane.
