Wet Hair Woes
Here’s a way to leave the house with damp hair and style! If hair is wet, run styling lotion or gel throughout. Spritz hair spray onto a brush and brush hair back, letting the sides curve down. Finish with more spray. Never go to bed with wet hair! No, I’m not kidding!
What do mouthwash, fabric softener, and wine have to do with hair? They’re unconventional hair treatments that really work! Read on!
Neutralize the green color caused by chlorine by dabbing a little red wine onto the hair. Use it as a precaution before entering the pool. Use it before shampooing.
Mix ¼ cup mouthwash with 1 cup water. Apply to scalp as a cleanser. Use after shampooing.
DO NOT RINSE OUT!
The best leave-in conditioner is none other than laundry room fabric softener. It’s very strong, so be sure to dilute it.
Suggestion: 1 cup water, 1/2 cup fabric softener.
Experiment with different softener scents for your own personal hair “signature.”
