Strange Hair Tips for Gorgeous DIY Locks

There are lots of hair tips and tricks out there that you can do yourself to change your hair’s color, style or texture. Here are some of the best ones:

  1. If you’re interested in subtle highlights but don’t want to shell out the cash at a salon, try using lemon juice and the sun. Squeeze an entire lemon in a dish and dip a clean toothbrush in the juice. Gently comb it through your hair where you’d like natural highlights to appear. Then sit in the sun and don’t forget the SPF! If you do this once every few weeks in the summer, the lemon juice and sun combination will naturally lighten your hair for beautiful highlights.
  2. If your hair has extra static in the winter, use dryer sheets to smooth it out. Using one sheet, smooth it over your head from roots to ends. You can also rub dryer sheets on your brushes and combs to help avoid getting static in the first place.
  3. If you want to make your ponytail look fuller and longer, use this tip. First put the bottom section of your hair in a small ponytail. Then put the rest of your hair in a high ponytail that will cover the bottom ponytail. Use some dry shampoo to get a fuller texture.
  4. To remove oil and product buildup naturally, use baking soda and water to create a paste and wash your hair with it. Rinse with apple cider vinegar for extra squeaky clean hair.
  5. If you frequently get baby hairs and cowlicks, use a clean toothbrush and spray it with extra hold hairspray. Then use it to comb down those tiny and hard to tame hairs.
  6. If you want to prevent hair breakage and damage while you sleep, switch to a silk pillowcase.
  7. Make your own dry shampoo for darker hair! Mix two tablespoons of cocoa powder, two tablespoons of corn starch and a dash of cinnamon. Apply at the roots and shake through with your fingers for a dry shampoo that is natural, effective and will match the color of your hair to avoid white streaks.
  8. If your hair routinely gets frizzy from drying it with a towel after your bath or shower, dry your hair with an old cotton T-shirt instead to absorb water and cut friction.
