Hair Hacks

by - 10:51

So earlier this week i discovered a post on cool blades, They wrote about 20 Hair straightener hacks, so i thought I'd give a few ago and see if they actually work. 
Here's the post for reference:  HAIR HACKS

Starting lower down the list was a picture stating "Create a sleek look that has volume by not straightening your roots" 

So i tried this both after washing my hair and drying it and a few days later too.
After drying my hair with a hair dryer i parted my hair into sections and starting a few inches from my roots i straightened my hair. I found that it did help with giving my hair a bit of volume, and adding a little bit or hair spray helped a lot too. 
A few days later, i tried it again, this time it didn't work as well, i mean it helped but not a hell of a lot and i found myself back combing my roots. 

The next hack i saw was "say no to split ends by always straightening with a comb" I mean i have always found it hard to use a comb, but i tried today, and after having my hair done i am trying to use one now, were soon see how long it takes to get a few split ends! 

Heading back to the first hair hack on the list of 20 was "Use your straighteners to create curls" 
I loved the fact that this worked so well! I mean i have a lot of hair so it took me a while to curl my whole head, but who needs curling irons when you have hair straighteners. It worked so well and the finished look i loved so much that i went out for a meal with my hair done like it. 

So when i want wavy hair i have to wash it the night before, plate it and sleep with them in, wake up take them out, and brush out the curls because they are way to crazy and i end up looking like a poodle. 
When i tried this one i never thought that it was actually going to work, but i was wrong. 
After about 3-4 minutes of straightening the plate i took it out and boom. 
So simple and no craziness at all.
I love it. 

I only tried out a few of these hair hacks, but if you want to read the list of 20 you can find it HERE

Let me know what you think in the comments bellow, I'd love to hear your thoughts on the hair hacks.

I'd also just like to add that i had to do this post before i had my hair dyed, because i knew that i was also going to be having my hair cut rather short and would struggle to take good pictures that showed how well they worked.
So lets all just act like i don't have really really bad roots.

    1. I start from the top pull the hair though the straightener so the piece of hair is heated and then wrap it around the straighteners count to about 15 or 20 and pull it out. its a different way, compared to other people that do it i know, but it works really well, as you can see.
