Wengie’s 5 Essential Hair Hacks For Every Girl
Healthy hair starts on the inside, so ensuring you get the right vitamins in your body will give your hair a chance to grow healthily and beautifully. Make sure you’re getting enough Omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin C, vitamin A, biotin, and folic acid!
Not only should you be consuming these nutrients, but you should also keep your hair healthy by cleaning your brush often. This can be done using a fine, straight-toothed comb, or even a kitchen skewer to remove the bulk of hair on your brush. Then, scrub the bristles and brush base with a toothbrush and some shampoo. Dry your brush with a towel before use to prevent bacteria from growing on it.
To keep your hair smelling fresh, stay away from perfume as it contains alcohol which can be damaging. Instead, use scented dryer sheets by puncturing a sheet through the bristles of a hair brush. Simply go through your hair with the dryer sheet and brush, and it will not only smell amazing, but also will be de-frizzed!
Wish your ponytail was longer? You can make it seem to be with this trick: Tie two ponytails in the back of your head. One should be smaller and closer to your neck, while the other should be bigger and closer to your crown. Lay the bigger on-top of the smaller, and your ponytail will seem longer than it actually is!
Many girls don’t like the way their hair weighs down and loses its volume after they use conditioner. According to Wengie, This can be solved by applying a hair mask before shampooing in the shower. Melt two teaspoons of coconut oil, and with a basting brush, paint the oil into the roots of your hair. Then massage it into your scalp (because a healthy scalp leads to a healthy head of hair!) and follow up by brushing your hair to distribute the oils evenly. Wait thirty minutes before washing the hair mask out in the shower and using shampoo.
