25 Hairstyling Hacks That Will Make Your Life Easier

We all have days where the last thing we want to do is spent 30 minutes messing around with our hair trying to get it to look decent. Worse still are the mornings, when we don’t have time to wash our hair but it’s looking a little greasy. Well worry no longer! Here are 25 hairstyling hacks you can use to make sure you never have to have a bad hair day ever again!

1. If You’re In A Rush Or Your Hair Takes Ages To Dry, Give It A Half Wash.

    Most of the oil that we refer to as grease in our hair is in the ends, but oils that make our hair look voluminous and lustrous is at the roots. So instead of washing all of your hair, focus on the ends to create a clean but natural looking style.

    2. Next Time You’re In The Sauna, Make Sure You Have A Hair Mask On.

                                                    30 Brilliant Camping Hacks I Wish I Knew Earlier

                                                    Ah, camping. The great outdoors, the campfires, the food you’d never eat in civilised society: it’s a wonderful experience.

                                                    That said, things can get a little bit tricky when we are left to the mercy of Mother Nature. Here are 30 fantastic camping hacks you can use to make your camping experience as wonderful as possible!

                                                     1. Use sage to repel mosquitoes.

                                                    1dca4068e7ecfe1473e91457f8b87402
                                                      photoshelter.com

                                                      Place some sage in your campfire and the smell is sure to ward off any pesky mosquitos.

                                                      2. Liquid soap + cotton balls = no ticks.

                                                      7575e1c4546c5967d33eea08caa13422
                                                        crateandbarrel.com

                                                        If you or one of your fellow campers is having trouble with a tick, place the soap-soaked cotton on the tick for 20 seconds. The tick will eventually stop chewing and will come away with the cotton ball. If the tick was attached for a lengthy amount of time you may want to consider keeping it in a container so that you can test it for Lyme disease later.

                                                        3. Use an acorn cap as a whistle if you get lost.

                                                        86080da1468d1e75640e5f95b39ff558
                                                          smallhomebigstart.com

                                                          It’s remarkably easy to get lost whilst camping. Here’s a full tutorial on how you can transform an acorn into a whistle!

                                                          4. Corn chips for kindling!

                                                          ac73d007cd4eb6990b38fa305b29063b

                                                            Doritos are a great way to start a fire, just be careful!

                                                            5. Use the rest of the chips for nachos.

                                                            c87cd05491ff02c45488dd428379dcb2
