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

Hair Spray 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

          Style: "12.19.09 SHINING"

            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.

                  8 Best Air Purifiers for a Healthy Home

                  8 Best Air Purifiers for a Healthy Home

                  Whether you suffer from allergies, have pet friends, or live in a climate where bacteria thrive, the best air purifier will make sure that your home’s air is clean and fresh at all times. We all clean our houses regularly, but it is easy to look over the most important element in our homes, apart from the surfaces, and that’s air. Thanks to the best air purifier, the air in your home will be more breathable and cleaner.

                  Why You Should Trust Us

                  If you are looking for which best air purifier is for you, we here at Lifehack have put in the time and effort to find it. There are so many to pick and choose from, so we sifted through dozens to find purifiers suitable for many people.

                  For these air purifier reviews, we will be suggesting home filters based on three criteria:

                  • CADR: The rating that’s used to determine an air purifier’s effectiveness.
                  • Room Size: The area that an air purifier takes up in a room.
                  • Noise: How loud and distracting it can get.

                  With these in mind, here are the suggestions for the best air purifiers you can get.

                  1. Winix 5500-2 Air Purifier

                    If you’re looking for an ozone air purifier, this is a solid option. The HEPA filter is capable of capturing up to 99.97% of airborne pollutants, dust mites, and more. The filters provided are able to be washed, and the air purifier has a CADR of 360 square feet. It’s suitable for kitchens and medium to large bedrooms or living spaces.

                    That said, the air purifier does have some issues with the sensor, particularly in the auto mode. You’re also stuck with the color of this air purifier as is: black.

                    2. Blueair Blue Pure 211+ Air Purifier

                    Advertising

                      When considering an alternative, we suggest Blueair’s air purifier. It’s an air purifier that addresses allergies and is safe for pets. It’s able to capture 99% of airborne pollutants and is capable of filtering odors from smoking, pets, cooking, and wildfires. Even the sound it makes isn’t loud. The lowest setting is a sound equivalent to a whisper, and the highest is a sound equivalent to rainfall.

                      One downside is the fact this filter is relatively small and is meant to be stationed on the floor. It’s about as tall as a small child, so it’s easy for children to stick their fingers or other objects into the air cleaner. Also, considering the size, it’s not built to handle larger rooms unless you get multiple. Even then, customers noted that the sound could be irritating when using multiple filters in a room.

                      3. Hathaspace Smart True HEPA Air Purifier

                        For the best air purifier for your money, the Hathaspace air purifier is a good option. It allows you to adjust settings manually and works well as an air purification system capable of capturing 99.97% of air pollutants, gas, and more. It also comes with a 2-year warranty, so it’s not as risky as other brands that may only have a month or three-month warranty.

                        That said, many customers noted that it’s not good at keeping back odors as much. The air purifier has a tendency to shut off when the air quality is good, regardless of if the room smells bad.

                        4. GENIANI Home Air Purifier

                        Advertising

                          The air purifier from Geniani is another solid option for those looking to fight off allergies and want efficiency in their air purifier. The air cleanser comes with a 2-year warranty and is known for its power while still remaining quiet. You can choose between three speeds, and it even has a nightlight option, too.

                          All in all, it’s a great product, though people struggled a little bit with the nightlight option. The light is a little too bright when it’s in the dark, making it disruptive if you’re the type of person who prefers completely dark rooms when sleeping.

                          5. Honeywell HFD-120-Q QuietClean Oscillating Air Purifier

                            Another consideration for air purifier home use is Honeywell’s air purifier. One of the big perks from this air cleanser is that the three filters are able to be washed and used permanently, saving you the struggle of buying additional filters. The company also provides replacement filters should the filters perform poorly or get worn down. Beyond that, it’s capable of capturing 99% of air pollutants and is energy efficient, too.

                            The air purifier itself is quiet, however, and if you allow it to swivel, the parts themselves could make a loud squeaking sound after a while. It’s also not as strong as other air purifiers around, with customers noting that a ceiling fan may be better.

                            6. PARTU Air Purifier

                              Another cheap option is the PARTU air purifier. Some of the main selling points is that it has an ultra-silent sleep mode, a 4-step filtration process, and serves as a night light thanks to the color ring on it.

                              Similar to other small filters, this filter isn’t going to be very strong. Furthermore, many customers noted that the filter emitted a sweet scent from it after a while.

                              7. LEVOIT Air Purifier

                                The LEVOIT air purifier is a compact air cleaner that actually is actually quite strong for its size. Its CADR is high enough it can cover a 219 square foot space. And although it’s strong, it’s designed to make minimal noise. Pair that up with it being ozone-free and energy-efficient, and you have a solid air cleaner.

                                However, like most other air filters you’ll find, it is good at cleaning the air but isn’t as strong when dealing with odors in particular. Furthermore, despite its strength, it struggles to handle larger rooms, making it more suitable for small rooms.

                                8. Coway White HEPA Air Purifier

                                  The final filter that we have found is this one from Coway. It’s designed to handle room sizes of up to 361 square feet, offers a 4-stage filtration system, and also has an eco-mode to conserve energy when it’s done filtering.

                                  One of the largest criticisms for this air purifier is that the fan settings range widely from the noise pollution. Some customers compared the settings between 2 and 3 to a weaker version of the 1st setting (barely making a sound) to a jet engine starting up. Some people also noted that the air purifier tends to wobble and shake, too.

                                  FAQ

                                  Q: Do air purifiers really work?
                                  A: In short, yes. An air purifier consists of one filter (or more) and a fan that pulls in and circulates the air. Exactly like water filters, the idea is that the home air purifiers will capture all of the pollutants and particles before pushing out the rest of the air.

                                  As for the filters, depending on the brand, you’ll have different kinds of filters. Filters can be made of paper, fiberglass, or mesh.

                                  So long as you are taking care of the air purifier by replacing the filters on occasion, an air purifier should work smoothly and without any major issues.

                                  Q: Can HEPA Air Purifiers prevent Covid-19?
                                  A: Unfortunately, there is no air purifier that can do anything to prevent or kill the coronavirus. As mentioned above, air purifiers focus on collecting particles and pollutants. 

                                  As such, an air purifier, HEPA or any air cleaner, can capture the virus, but the virus will be able to live within the filter for a period of time.

                                  Final Thoughts

                                  The market is filled with all kinds of air purifiers, and overall, many of them are capable of handling air quality. That said, there may be slight issues depending on what you’re looking for. No matter the case, you are taking the risk of potentially getting a purifier that may run into issues with smells or making too much noise. It’s part of the territory it seems. However, any one of the above air purifiers will help clean up the air and leave your house at least a little fresher.
