8 Strange Hair Tips that totally work!

Who knew that there were so many household products that we use on a daily basis that can be used on your hair. Here are 8 strange hair tips that totally work!

1. Toothbrush:

A toothbrush can be used on the hair in two different ways. The first way is fake fuller hair on thin hair. More.com suggests, “Tousle the hair from root to crown with your fingertips as you blow-dry. Then, when your strands are dry, give the roots extra lift by back-combing their undersides with a clean, dry toothbrush. Rather than tearing at hair like a comb, the soft bristles will grip and rough up strands just enough to maintain lift.” The second way to use a toothbrush on your hair is to spray it with hairspray to tame flyaways.

2. Paper towels:

When your hair is wet, instead of drying it with a towel, use paper towels to avoid frizz. More.com says, “The paper won’t create as much friction as a towel, so your hair ends up less frizzy. It also absorbs more water than a cloth towel, really speeding up your drying time.”

3. Dryer Sheets:

Don’t you hate those days where your hair just won’t cooperate and you can tame the static. Dryer sheets are the solution to that problem, they help tame hair static. Alllwomenstalk.com says, “Dryer sheets take static out quickly and leave your hair smelling great. It's only a temporary fix though, so if it's a particularly dry winter day, be sure to stash a few in your purse! Open the dryer sheet completely, grab a fairly large section of hair and run the sheet from the scalp to the bottom of the strand.”

4. Paper Bag:

If you want to curl your hair but don’t want to use heat or don’t have a curling iron handy, a paper bag can do the trick. Bellasugar.com says, “"Paper bag" curls work on the same principle as rag curls. You just tear a big paper grocery bag into strips, and then roll your towel-dried or slightly dampened hair up in them. You can sleep on them or, for faster results, blow-dry and then spritz with hair spray.”

5. Tomato Ketchup:

Using Ketchup on Blonde hair can fix problems with chlorine related issues or a bad hair dye experience. Huffingtonpost.com says, “Blonde ladies can counteract green shades and rejuvenate their colour with the help of tomato ketchup. While it may not be the most appealing hair treatment, the red condiment can neutralize the green in your hair, leading to shiny, golden locks once more. Apply the tomato ketchup to hair and leave on for 20 minutes, then rinse off and shampoo as normal.”

6. Vodka:

Vodka can be used to tame frizzy hair and add shine to your hair. Health.com says, “Because it has a low pH, vodka can help de-frizz your strands. Add one shot to a 12-ounce conditioner (avoid those for color-treated hair). Shake well and apply a few times a month.”Click here for 5 different ways to use vodka on your hair!

7. Deodorant:

You can use deodorant on your hairline for those days where you are really hot and you need your hair to stay nice. Xojane.com says, “A thin layer of clear deodorant around my hairline and down my neck while I’m dry has saved many a hairstyle. See also: It can help keep your hair from sticking to your neck in bed.”Who would have thought something you put on your armpit is good for your hair also.

8.Cool Whip:

 if your hair is extra dry and needs to be brought back to life, use cool whip to condition dry locks. Tootsiez.com suggests to, “Apply Cool Whip to dry hair, let sit for thirty minutes, then rinse well and shampoo.  The coconut and palm kernel oils in Cool Whip condition hair for a luxurious shine.” This tasty topping will not only make a sundae taste good but it will make your hair moisturized and shiny.
