How to avoid hat hair once and for all11 January 2019
Welcome to the bleak midwinter - in more ways than one. Not only has the mercury plunged and the cold shock of reality set in after the twinkly festive season, but you also have to contend with one of winter’s most devastating beauty struggles: hat hair.
Here’s how best to use health and beauty products to avoid hat hair once and for all, and break out that beanie with all the carefree confidence you deserve. Happy New Year, indeed!
Avoiding hat hair starts in the shower. If your locks are oily or dry, your hat hair defences won’t be up to scratch. So ensure you choose a nourishing shampoo and protect your tresses from heated tools with a product like R + Co FOIL Frizz + Static Control Spray from Birchbox.
This treat seals in moisture while protecting, strengthening and softening hair - all of which makes it easier to manage.
Make sure your hair is completely dry. While you might feel rushed for time on a busy morning, jamming a hat onto damp hair could result in a particularly stubborn case of hat hair. You have been warned.
Invest in a texturising spray. Ditch the wax-based products as this can result in hair that’s difficult to rework. Instead, give flat roots a spritz with a volumising spray like Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun or add a little beach texture with Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray to work out those hat-related kinks.
Spray about 10 inches away from your roots and rub in the product until no white residue remains. You’ll find it boosts your barnet while eliminating any oil build-up - perfect for giving your hat hair life.
Use a holding spray to secure your ‘do’. Hat or no hat, if you’ve taken the time to put together an A-List hairdo, you want to keep it in place. Feelunique offers a comprehensive range of styling sprays from the best brands in the business - try the L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strength to keep your locks in shape.
Choose the right hat. Cap your crowning glory with care and pick a loose-fitting beanie to avoid the worst hair hair sins. Bear in mind too, that coarse materials tend to frizz hair more than smoother fabrics.
With the right hat and our great health and beauty discounts to hand, you’ll be able to both nail your sartorial statement and swish that mane in style. Happy New Hair!
