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.

                  5 Simple Ways to Relieve Stress Effectively

                  5 Simple Ways to Relieve Stress Effectively

                  Everyone experiences mental stress at one time or another. Maybe you’re starting a new career, job, or business, or you feel incredibly overwhelmed between work, parenting, and your love life (or a lack of it). It could even be that you simply feel that you have way too much to do and not enough time to do it,  plus, on top of everything, nothing seems to be going the way it should!

                  Yup, we all experience mental stress from time-to-time, and that’s okay as long as you have the tools, techniques and knowledge that allow you to fully relieve it once it comes.

                  Here are 5 tips for relieving mental stress when it comes so you can function at your best while feeling good (and doing well) in work, love, or life:

                  1. Get Rationally Optimistic

                  Mental stress starts with your perception of your experiences. For instance, most people get stressed out when they perceive their reality as “being wrong” in some way. Essentially, they have a set idea of how things “should be” at any given moment, and when reality ends up being different (not even necessarily bad), they get stressed.

                  This process is simply a result of perception and can be easily “fixed” by recognizing that although life might not always be going as YOU think it should, it’s still going as it should—for your own benefit.

                  In fact, once you fully recognize that everything in your life ultimately happens for your own growth, progress, and development—so you can achieve your goals and dreams—your perception works in your favor. You soon process and respond to your experience of life differently, for your advantage. That’s the essence of becoming “rationally optimistic.”

                  The result: no more mental stress.

                  2. Unplug

                  Just like you might need to unplug your computer when it starts acting all crazy, you should also “unplug” your mind.

                  Advertising

                  How on earth do you unplug your mind? Simple: just meditate.

                  It isn’t nearly difficult or complicated as some people think, so, if you don’t already meditate, give it a try. Whether you meditate for 5 minutes, 30 minutes, or 2 hours, this is a surefire way to reduce mental stress.

                  Meditation has been scientifically proven to relax your body (resulting in less mental stress), while also reducing anxiety and high blood pressure.

                  3. Easy on the Caffeine

                  Yes, we know, we know—everyone loves a nice java buzz, and that’s okay, but there’s a fine line between a small caffeine pick-me-up and a racing heart and mind that throws you into a frenzy of mental stress.

                  Advertising

                  Try giving up caffeine for a while and see how you feel. And, if that’s completely out of the question for you, at least try to minimize it. You might find that lots of your mental stress mysteriously “disappears” as your caffeine intake goes down.

                  4. Attack Mental Stress Via the Back Door

                  That’s right: your body and mind are part of the whole being, and are constantly influencing and affecting each other. If you’re experiencing a lot of mental stress, try to reduce it by calming your body down—a calm body equals a calmer mind.

                  How do you calm your body down and reduce physical stress? A  great way to reduce physical stress (thereby reducing mental stress) is to take natural supplements that are proven to reduce stress and anxiety while lifting your mood. Three good ones to look into are kava-kava, St John’s wort, and rhodiola rosea:

                  • Kava-kava is a natural plant known to have mild sedative properties, and you should be able to find it at your natural health food store or vitamin store. It’s available in capsules or liquid extract form.
                  • St John’s wort is a natural flower used to treat depression. Again, it’s found at your local health store in capsules or liquid. Because it uplifts mood (enabling you to see the brighter side of all experiences) it helps relieve mental stress as well.
                  • Rhodiola rosea is a natural plant shown to reduce stress and uplift mood, and Russian athletes have been using it forever. Like the other two supplements mentioned, rhodiola rosea can be found at your natural health store in capsule or liquid form.

                  While these supplements are all natural and can be very helpful for most people, always check with your health care provider first as they can cause side-effects depending on your current health situation etc.

                  5. Good Old-Fashioned Exercise

                  This tip has been around forever because it works. Nothing relieves mental stress like running, kickboxing—you name it. Anything super-physical will wipe out most of your mental stresses once the exercise endorphins (happy chemicals) are released into your brain.

                  The result: mental stress will be gone!

                  So, if you’re feeling overwhelmed or just plain stressed, try using some of the above tips. You can even print this out or save it to refer to regularly.
