Complete Guide To Spray Your Hair Easily

Complete Guide To Spray Your Hair Easily

Due to the sheer volume of various hairspray products promising to keep your hair looking healthy and in style, it’s hard deciding on which product to use. This just one challenge involved. Do you know the proper way of using hairspray in order to get the maximum effect that each of them claim to deliver? Here are 8 tips that will help you spray your hair with ease, and pull off the look you desire.

1. Use Hairspray To Smoothen Hair

    If you think hairspray should be applied after you have tied your hair into a ponytail then you’d be wrong. The right way is to spritz your hairspray onto a boar-bristle or a nylon hairbrush and use it to sweep your hair back into a ponytail. This way, frizzy curls and flyaways will lie flat without using too much hairspray that will weigh down the strands.

    2. Volumize Your Hair With Hairspray

      The most popular use of hairspray in the 90s was to add volume to the hair, and it’s still used to this day. However, the application is not the same. Back then, the hair should be teased first to get the volume desired, then sprayed to hold the style. Now, the hair should be brushed upside-down. The hairspray should be sprayed six inches away from the scalp before blow drying it to achieve amazing volume.

      3. Prevent Oily Hair With Dry Shampoo

        One innovative product that came out in the market is dry shampoo. This is very handy to people who are in a hurry to go to work in the morning, and want to cut off preparation time by not wetting their hair. To avoid the accumulation of oil in your hair and scalp, apply dry shampoo to blow dried hair by lifting the top layer and spraying directly underneath the root, to hide the white residue as well as hold the style longer.

        4. Create A Wavy Style By Spraying Dry Shampoo Before Bed

          To get a wavy or messy hairstyle in the morning without using iron rollers. Instead, spray dry shampoo to dry hair, six inches away from the scalp to avoid heavy build up. Start from the hair on your ears and spray your way up, then twist your hair into a bun. You will be amazed on the volume that you will get in the morning.

          5. Outline Curls With Spray Gel

            Apply spray gel to your towel-dried hair by lightly misting over it for approximately ten sprays. Pay special attention to particular areas where more control is needed. If some of your hair gets frizzed throughout the day, you can touch it up easily by applying spray gel.

            6. Set Braids With Spray Gel

              Instead of applying spray gel after braiding your hair, it is best that you do it prior to braiding — especially if you have layered hair. Separate your hair into sections. Lightly mist the spray gel from about 6 inches away. Once you braid your hair, spray again to tame flyaways.

              7. Use Heat-Protecting Spray

                If you’re fond of using a blow dryer, hair curlers, or any other hot tools then the use of heat-protecting spray is a must. After deep conditioning your hair, apply heat-protecting spray on your wet hair to let it penetrate the hair cuticle and shaft before blow drying it. You can either spray part by part, or just spray it all over your hair. It will not only protect your hair from damage, but also give it additional shine.

                8. Use Salt Spray To Create Textures

                  Apply salt spray to the middle and bottom sections of your hair. If you want more volume, mist salt spray on your roots, then twist and crunch your hair to activate the salt spray. This will help you achieve the off-the-beach wave effect that you want.

                  If you buy hairspray products online, it would be best to use available sale offers as well as use coupons (like redemption codes for eBay) to save on expenses.

                  7 Simple Rules to Live by to Get in Shape in Two Weeks

                  7 Simple Rules to Live by to Get in Shape in Two Weeks

                  Learning how to get in shape and set goals is important if you’re looking to live a healthier lifestyle and get closer to your goal weight. While this does require changes to your daily routine, you’ll find that you are able to look and feel better in only two weeks.

                  Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to get in shape. Although anyone can cover the basics (eat right and exercise), there are some things that I could only learn through trial and error. Let’s cover some of the most important points for how to get in shape in two weeks.

                  1. Exercise Daily

                  It is far easier to make exercise a habit if it is a daily one. If you aren’t exercising at all, I recommend starting by exercising a half hour every day. When you only exercise a couple times per week, it is much easier to turn one day off into three days off, a week off, or a month off.

                  If you are already used to exercising, switching to three or four times a week to fit your schedule may be preferable, but it is a lot harder to maintain a workout program you don’t do every day.

                  Be careful to not repeat the same exercise routine each day. If you do an intense ab workout one day, try switching it up to general cardio the next. You can also squeeze in a day of light walking to break up the intensity.

                  2. Duration Doesn’t Substitute for Intensity

                  Once you get into the habit of regular exercise, where do you go if you still aren’t reaching your goals? Most people will solve the problem by exercising for longer periods of time, turning forty-minute workouts into two hour stretches. Not only does this drain your time, but it doesn’t work particularly well.

                  One study shows that “exercising for a whole hour instead of a half does not provide any additional loss in either body weight or fat”[1].

                  This is great news for both your schedule and your levels of motivation. You’ll likely find it much easier to exercise for 30 minutes a day instead of an hour. In those 30 minutes, do your best to up the intensity to your appropriate edge to get the most out of the time.

                  3. Acknowledge Your Limits

                  Many people get frustrated when they plateau in their weight loss or muscle gaining goals as they’re learning how to get in shape. Everyone has an equilibrium and genetic set point where their body wants to remain. This doesn’t mean that you can’t achieve your fitness goals, but don’t be too hard on yourself if you are struggling to lose weight or put on muscle.

                  Acknowledging a set point doesn’t mean giving up, but it does mean realizing the obstacles you face.

                  Expect to hit a plateau in your own fitness results[2]. When you expect a plateau, you can manage around it so you can continue your progress at a more realistic rate. When expectations meet reality, you can avoid dietary crashes.

                  4. Eat Healthy, Not Just Food That Looks Healthy

                  Know what you eat. Don’t fuss over minutia like whether you’re getting enough Omega 3’s or tryptophan, but be aware of the big things. Look at the foods you eat regularly and figure out whether they are healthy or not. Don’t get fooled by the deceptively healthy snacks just pretending to be good for you.

                  The basic nutritional advice includes:

                  • Eat unprocessed foods
                  • Eat more veggies
                  • Use meat as a side dish, not a main course
                  • Eat whole grains, not refined grains[3]

                  Advertising

                  Eat whole grains when you want to learn how to get in shape.

                    5. Watch Out for Travel

                    Don’t let a four-day holiday interfere with your attempts when you’re learning how to get in shape. I don’t mean that you need to follow your diet and exercise plan without any excursion, but when you are in the first few weeks, still forming habits, be careful that a week long break doesn’t terminate your progress.

                    This is also true of schedule changes that leave you suddenly busy or make it difficult to exercise. Have a backup plan so you can be consistent, at least for the first month when you are forming habits.

                    If travel is on your schedule and can’t be avoided, make an exercise plan before you go[4], and make sure to pack exercise clothes and an exercise mat as motivation to keep you on track.

                    6. Start Slow

                    Ever start an exercise plan by running ten miles and then puking your guts out? Maybe you aren’t that extreme, but burnout is common early on when learning how to get in shape. You have a lifetime to be healthy, so don’t try to go from couch potato to athletic superstar in a week.

                    If you are starting a running regime, for example, run less than you can to start. Starting strength training? Work with less weight than you could theoretically lift. Increasing intensity and pushing yourself can come later when your body becomes comfortable with regular exercise.

                    7. Be Careful When Choosing a Workout Partner

                    Should you have a workout partner? That depends. Workout partners can help you stay motivated and make exercising more fun. But they can also stop you from reaching your goals.

                    My suggestion would be to have a workout partner, but when you start to plateau (either in physical ability, weight loss/gain, or overall health) and you haven’t reached your goals, consider mixing things up a bit.

                    If you plateau, you may need to make changes to continue improving. In this case it’s important to talk to your workout partner about the changes you want to make, and if they don’t seem motivated to continue, offer a thirty day break where you both try different activities.

                    I notice that guys working out together tend to match strength after a brief adjustment phase. Even if both are trying to improve, something seems to stall improvement once they reach a certain point. I found that I was able to lift as much as 30-50% more after taking a short break from my regular workout partner.

                    Final Thoughts

                    Learning how to get in shape in as little as two weeks sounds daunting, but if you’re motivated and have the time and energy to devote to it, it’s certainly possible.

                    Find an exercise routine that works for you, eat healthy, drink lots of water, and watch as the transformation begins.
