We’ve all had a hair emergency that made us resort to some less-than-ideal solutions to make it work. Next time, have these products on hand and avoid those bad hair days.
In a pinch: Running an anti-static dryer sheet over your hair works, but static can come back in a nanosecond.
Stylist solution: Dry hair is more prone to static, so replenish moisture with Biolage Hydrasource Conditioning Balm.
In a pinch: Hand lotion is a good fix if used sparingly. If you overdo it, it can leave hair dull and weigh it down.
Stylist solution: Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum temporarily seals split ends and adds shine.
In a pinch: Baby powder sops up oil if you don’t have time to shampoo. The downside? It can cake up and leave your hair with a whitish hue.
Stylist solution: Paul Mitchell Dry Wash absorbs oil and adds body without buildup.
In a pinch: Wearing a slicked back ‘do? In a pinch, a little lip balm will smooth down stray baby hairs, but it can attract dirt.
Stylist solution: Sexy Hair Hard Up Holding Gel keeps every hair in place without buildup.
