Having a bad hair day and you’ve freshly ran out of a repairing product plus… you are in a hurry? Well… rest assured your hair does not have to suffer as long as you've got a few key items around the house!
1. Disguise gray hairs with eyeshadow
Tweezing stray gray hairs can be a pain – literally and metaphorically – and you don't always have time to colour your hair when you spot a gray. In need of a quick, easy and painless option? Find an eyeshadow colour that matches your hair colour and rub over the problem strands for temporary coverage.
2. Highlight with citrus
Blonde locks need a boost? We've all heard that squeezing the juice of a lemon in your strands pre-sun is a great DIY highlighter, but adding the juice of an orange makes the colour a little more believable. Turns out the mixture of the two juices creates a warmer and more natural blonde – while still adding that boost!
3. Conceal green tints with tomato juice
Did you know that the molecules in chlorine and hard water can turn your strands green? That's right – GREEN! The DIY cure? Massaging tomato juice in your hair conceals the unwanted colour, as the red pigments in the juice warm up and cancel out any trace of green.
4. Tease roots with a toothbrush
Toothbrushes are constructed for polishing those pearly whites, and maybe scrubbing dirt from hard to reach places. But they also serve a major purpose for your hair! They help tease roots in small, hard to reach places, smooth flyaways and are great hair dye dispensers.
5. DIY dry shampoo: Flour
This quick trick will allow you to tame second-day hair and go! Sprinkling flour in your hair acts as a dry shampoo by absorbing the oil. In a rush? Don't fret! Wait about 10 seconds after sprinkling onto roots, and then dust off with a makeup brush and make your break for the door.
Who knew that the items we tend to take for granted can save us in the stickiest of hair situations?! Adding these life-saving DIY tricks to your beauty arsenal to get you out of a bind will save major time and money, and most of all, your hair.
