6 Weird Hair Tricks that Actually Work


Beauty magazines are full of crazy tips and tricks guaranteed to work, but which ones actually do? Here are 6 weird hair tricks that actually work that you can try today:

  1. Use dryer sheets to get rid of static in your hair. We’ve all experienced that moment when our flawless ‘do was destroyed after taking off a sweatshirt. And if you have fine hair, you probably experience static hair quite frequently in the winter time, as cold weather and dry air often contribute to the problem. Dryer sheets can serve as a quick fix to static hair. Just smooth the dryer sheet over your hair from root to ends, or rub them on your hairbrush and comb before use.

  2. Dry your hair with a cotton T-shirt, not a towel. Towels disrupt your hair’s cuticles, causing friction and even leading to damage like split ends. A cotton shirt will absorb the water without creating frizz and damaging your hair.

  3. Speed up blow drying time with paper towels. After you’ve patted dry with a T-shirt, you can also remove more water from your hair by blotting it with paper towels. The more water you can remove before applying heat, the better, as the potential for damaging your hair goes up the longer you use heat products. You can also speed up drying with a quick dry spray, like KMS California Free Shape Quick Blow Dry, which provides heat protection and speed drying time by up to 50%.

  4. Increase shine with cold water. At the end of your shower, turn the dial to the coldest setting and let the frigid water run over your hair for a minute. Yes, it will be cold and you will be miserable for a few moments. However, the cold water seals your cuticle, helping to make your hair look shinier and healthier.

  5. Tame baby hairs and cowlicks with a toothbrush and some hairspray. Stray baby hairs are unflattering and seemingly impossible to control. Simply spray some hairspray onto a toothbrush and comb down those hairs so that they blend in.

  6. Use oatmeal in place of dry shampoo. If your hair is looking oily and you simply don’t have time to wash it and there’s no dry shampoo on hand, dry oats will do the trick. Sprinkle onto your scalp and gently rub in, then comb it out with your fingers or a brush.
