Having a Bad Hair Day? Solutions for a disastrous coupe.
No time to wash your hair today because you woke up too late as usual? But when you look in the mirror, you scare the Hell out of yourself? I know, it happens to me too sometimes. A bad hair day I mean. But I'm glad to say I've got it easy most of the time. I just make a ponytail, put some hairspray on my hair to let the cigarette smoke disappear and I'm on my way to work.
This first came into prominence in the language following its use in the 1992 film Buffy the Vampire Slayer, were Buffy was told:"
"I'm fine but you're obviously having a bad hair day."
The phrase was already known by that date but not very widely used. In July 1988 the Press Democrat, a Santa Rosa, California newspaper printed:"Even those who emerge from the sea to casually braid their shiny wet vines into a thick coil with a hibiscus on the end also have bad-hair days.".
Whether that's where the term was coined isn't certain, although it is a strong contender. There are many hearsay reports that it is much earlier, but no hard evidence has emerged to support them.
American scientists claim to have found the key of the so called bad hair day. Their conclusions might lead to a new line of hair care products.
There are two important reasons that cause a bad hair day. First of all your hair gets damaged trough blow drying your hair and too much sunlight and off course another reason is too much and too many times putting dye in your hair.
Damaged hairs cause friction when you try to comb them and get a negative charge. That's why your hairs do everything you don't want them to do and you've started your bad hair day.
Strangely enough healthy hair is hard to comb also. The microscope of these scientist showed that the reason for this is just the hairs rubbing against each other and building up a negative charge.
How to solve it all
Use the right shampoo
Yes First of all. There are a lot of shampoo's you can choose from and that makes it hard sometimes to pick the right one. A mild and neutral shampoo is a save choice because they don't take of the natural grease of your hair. An aggressive shampoo does and it only makes your hair more greasy than necessary.
Use a Conditioner
A good conditioner can protect your hair from the sunlight . It leaves a thin layer on your hairs which makes your hair to be protected against influences from outside. You use it after you washed your hair with shampoo and you only need to use a little bit. That is enough. Just let it there for a minute or two and then rinse it off.
Use an egg
Yes an egg. Especially in the summer when you're in the sun at the beach. Just break an egg, mix it with your shampoo. Eggs give a protein boost to your hair. Put it in your hair for about 5 minutes and then rinse it off with lukewarm water.The result of this all will be beautiful shiny and healthy hair.
Vegetables, Meat and Fish
The growth of your hair is influenced by what you eat. For healthy and growing hair you need to put vegetables on you menu(No not in your hair). Vegetables contain Vitamines A,C en B complex , Iron and Copper. Sink which is found in meat and fish can prevent your hair from falling out or at least put a limit at your hair falling out.
Beauty comes from the inside.
When your hair is very thin or you're regretting your too short haircut, maybe hair extensions can offer you a solution. Hair extensions are attached to your own hair with a little piece of wax that's melted on to your hair. The wax is transparent and so they're invisible. Hair extensions will last for about four months.
Waves or braids in your hair
You can make waves into your hair by twisting locks of hair and pin them with a hair pin. Let your hair dry and when you remove the pins, you've got a new look. The same with the braids. You won't be bothered by your hair during the day an when you want to go out in the evening, you've got curly, wavy hair.
A massage of the head
When you take a little more time to wash your hair give yourself a nice massage. Just let your fingers make circles on your head while you're washing your hair. It stimulates the blood circulation and so feeding your hair. And an extra is that it has a relaxing effect on you also.
Use the right brushes for your hair
Don't use brushes for your hair (or a comb) that is goning to 'hurt' your hair. The best thing to do is brush slowly and even better when your hair is dry. Don't start brushing like an idiot when you just came out of the shower and washed your hair.
Still having a Bad Hair day?
If you're really sure you still want to come out of bed when you know it's going to be one of those days.Sorry, there is only one solution left.
