Hack #1 - Supercharged Detangling: This is the perfect detangler tip for that anyone whose conditioner may not be enough to get the job done.
Here's what you do, take your favorite conditioner as well as any type of anti-frizz product or a thick oil.
You can use coconut oil, premium-grade 100% PURE avocado oil, grapeseed oil or one of your other favorites. Now put about 1/4 of a cup inside your conditioner bottle, make sure to shake it up after and then to detangle your hair, it'll make detangling so much faster and you'll be able to just glide right through your hair and detangle
the kinks and curls like a BOSS!
Hack#2 - Gel On The Go: If you're always on the go or travel a lot, this is for you. All you need is a small empty container your favorite gel.
Just take about a tablespoon or two of your gel and seal it up and throw it in your mini-container. That way no matter where you go, you'll have your gel in your bag to touch up some frizzy ends or just touch on your edges no matter where you are.
Hack #3- Hair Elastics On Deck: This is a cool hack so that you will always have a hair elastic on you, ready to roll! So for example if you are rockin' a bun in your hair and your elastic ties break because you have a lot of hair, you can take a few hair elastics and I attach them to your keychain!
Just use some industrial clips so that you can easily clip them on and off.
Or you can easily just add the hair elastics to the regular key loop that you have on your keys and that way no matter where you are you always have hair elastics and you never have to worry about it.
