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.

                  11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

                  11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

                  Affordable, relaxing, and healthy, oil diffusers are gaining popularity with people everywhere due to their extensive benefits. Oil diffusers work through the simple process of oil diffusion, which uses heat to turn oil into a vapor that is then spread around a living space. Diffused oil can have several relaxation and health-related benefits, including safe scent-dispersion, mosquito and mold defense, stress relief, and more!

                  Read on for 11 hidden benefits of using oil diffusers.

                  1. Safe Scents That Make Sense

                  Unlike candles or air fresheners, oil diffusers release cleansing molecules into your air that work to purify it, not overload it with unhealthy chemicals. Electronic diffusers also do not pose the fire risk that candles do. Plus, they contain the added feature of interchangeability, which means you change oil types for different scents and health benefits.

                  2. Stress Relief

                  Several lab studies have confirmed that diffusing essential oils like lavender have been shown to reduce stress and help relieve anxiety in medical patients. Preliminary studies have also shown that oil diffusers can help alleviate symptoms of depression.

                  3. Improved Sleep

                  Diffused oil has relaxing properties that can help people of all ages fall asleep quicker and sleep more soundly. Electronic diffusers not only have the option to mix and match different oil blends (Try a lavender, Bulgarian rose, and Roman chamomile blend to help with insomnia), they also run at a gentle hum that helps relax an agitated mind. Many also come with an auto shut-off feature to help conserve oils once you have fallen asleep.

                  4. Appetite Control

                  Much like gum, oil diffusers can help stimulate the senses in a way that works to curb appetite. New research has shown that diffused peppermint oil can help curb appetite by inducing a satiety response within the body. Diffused peppermint oil has also been shown to increase energy.

                  5. Bacteria and Mold Killing

                  When essential oils are diffused in the air, they break down free radicals that contribute to the growth of harmful bacteria. Eucalyptus, thyme, and tea tree oils are especially good for this purpose. Diffused oil is also highly effective when it comes to combating fungal yeast threats, as the oil help makes the air inhospitable for yeasts such as mold. Pine and red thyme essential oils are best for combating mold.

                  6. Decongestion and Mucus Control

                  Ever tried Vick’s Vapo-Rub? Its decongesting powers come from active ingredients made from the eucalyptus tree. In principle, oil diffusers work the same way as Vapo-Rub, except they diffuse their decongesting vapor all around the room, not just on your chest or neck. Oil diffusers have been known to cure pneumonia in lab mice.

                  7. Mosquito Repellant

                  Nobody likes mosquitoes — but when the trade-off means using repellants full of DEET, a toxic chemical that can be especially harmful to children, mosquito control can often seem like a lose-lose. However, scientists have shown that oil diffusers can be used as a safe and highly effective mosquito repellant. Studies have shown that a diffused oil mixture containing clove essential oil and lemongrass essential oil repelled one type of Zika-carrying mosquito, the Aedes aegypti mosquito, at a rate of 100%.

                  8. Pain Relief

                  While applying oils directly to areas of your body may be the most effective way to alleviate pain, diffusing essential oils can also be an effective means of pain relief. When we inhale healthy essential oils, they enter our blood stream and can help internally relieve persistent pain from headaches, overworked muscles, and sore joints.

                  9. The New Anti-Viral

                  Research into the anti-viral effects of oil diffusion is now just gaining steam. A recent study showed that star anise essential oil was proven in medical experiments to destroy the herpes simplex virus in contained areas at a rate of 99%. Another study showed the popular DoTerra oil blend OnGuard to have highly-effective influenza-combating powers.

                  10. Improved Cognitive Function

                  Diffusing essential oils has also been shown to improve cognitive function. Many essential oils have adaptogenic qualities, which can work twofold in soothing us when we’re stressed, and giving our bodies a pick-me-up when we’re feeling down or sluggish. By working to level out an imbalanced mood, diffused oils also help us to focus. There are also several essential oils which have been shown to help balance the body’s hormones. With prolonged use, these oils can work to repair the underlying causes responsible for hindering cognitive function.

                  11. Money Saving

                  With ten clear benefits of oil diffusers already outlined, there is one more that should now be obvious: using an oil diffuser will help you to save money. As an anti-viral, bug repelling, and stress-relief solution rolled into one safe product, an oil diffuser used with the proper oils will save you money on products you might otherwise be buying to help cure those pesky headaches or get your kids to fall asleep on time.
