Are good hair days really hard to come by? Is there really only one or two days of a particular style that you consider a good hair day? What if you could make everyday a good natural hair day? Guess what? You actually can and it’s probably not how you expected! Here are 4 tips to making every single day a good hair day.
Stick with Styles You’ve Mastered
There are styles that you know you can count on and for the most part often get great results. These styles just work perfectly for you and make you feel your best. Stick with those styles. Whether it’s a twistout, a braid out, a perm rod set, or wash n go. Worrying about whether or not a style you’re trying for the first time is stressful enough.
Accept your Hair Texture & What it Does
Sometimes we have bad hair days not because our hair is an actual fail, but because we failed to accept our hair texture and what it does. [Can I get an amen?] You can do the same hairstyle on different hair textures or types and get different looks. That doesn’t mean that one style or the other is a fail. So if your hair has more frizz to it or it doesn’t curl the way your favorite YouTuber’s hair does, don’t get frustrated, embrace it.
Have Back-Up Styles for FAILS
Fails. It happens to us all! Even with our favorite products and the technique we’ve been using for years. For one reason or the other, whether you used just a little too much product or your hair didn’t dry in time, your hair may not cooperate. Have at least a couple of back up styles just in case. My favorite back-up styles are roll, tuck, and pin updos. Whether yours is a puff, a goddess crown, or full on fro, be prepared to create those styles you love.
Rock It Like You Meant It
Confidence is key. It’s not a universal saying for nothing, it is the truth! When you rock your hairstyle (or anything else for that matter) with total confidence there’s nothing that can stop you. Don’t be concerned about what other people think of your hair. Once they see you strolling in with your style and your smile from ear to ear that’s all they are going to see. Project what you want to see and that’s positivity and good vibes.
You see, having a great hair day has nothing to do with hair length, thickness, or your hair’s similarity to anyone else’s. It has everything to do with your ability to achieve the styles that make your hair look it’s best. It has everything to do with your comfort and love for your own natural hair and what it does.
