Check out these top 4 hair hacks according to Ess:
1. Moisturize overnight to manage split ends.
An overnight mask of coconut oil applied to the tips of hair can help improve the health of your ends are bring it back into shape. Secure your hair in a bun and wrap it in cloth to keep the oil off your pillow. Shampoo and condition in the morning as you would any other day.
2. Make sure your hair brushes are clean.
This is common sense. Clean your hairbrushes! The amount of product, oil, and dirt on most people’s hairbrushes can be astounding. Make sure that you do a deep cleaning of your brushes once a month. Simply shampoo the brushes and rinse them well. When you have a clean brush, you can have smoother hair with better volume. And the brushes will last longer too.
3. Maximize volume even when you air-dry.
According to Ess, when you get out of the shower, use the pads of your fingers to massage your scalp in tiny circles while the hair is still wet. This motion will stir up the hair’s roots and lift the hair off your head so that it doesn’t dry completely flat and this will give your hair a little boost of natural volume.
4. Control static as you brush your hair.
To deal with intense hair static, rub your brush bristles down with a dryer sheet and then brush your hair. According to Ess, this method is preferred as opposed to rubbing the sheet directly on your hair because you can get the antistatic benefits all over your hair instead of just the top layer.
