Beauty Hacks: Hair

Single Ingredient Hair Mask

Are your locks looking lifeless and dull? Look to your pantry for the answer—coconut oil makes a great moisturizing mask and adds subtle shine and softness to your stressed tresses.

Sticky Bobby Pins

Bobby pins slipping and sliding all over the place? Spritz them with hairspray and voila—these “sticky pins” will stay in your hair much better.

The Dryer Sheet Hair Trick

Run a dryer sheet over your hair to instantly get rid of static flyaways.

Silk Pillow Sleep

We love cotton t-shirts because they are absorbent, light and let our skin breathe. Did you know that all these wonderful qualities get lost on your hair?! When you sleep on a cotton pillowcase it actually dries out your hair by absorbing its natural oils and creating hair tangles with its rougher texture. An easy swap for a silk pillowcase is a great solution. Bonus: Your skin will never get those silly sleep creases ever again!

Double Up Your Ponytail

Make your ponytail look longer and fuller by creating two ponytails on top of each other. Then, wrap a 1-inch section of hair around both elastics and pin it in place underneath.

Add Volume and Texture

A spritz of dry shampoo at the roots and a 30 second refresh with a blow drier will give your hair a much needed pizzaz and extend the life of a blowout.
