Girls, you don’t need to spend a lot of time taking care of yourself nor breaking the bank for that purpose. There are times when some home girly hacks come in handy. You know, small tips and tricks that don’t require much effort but that make staying healthy and looking great, and can make your life better and even easier.
Hack Number 1: Tame flyaways by using a toothbrush! Trying to get a sleek bun or style can be frustrating when flyaway hairs refuse to co-operate. Spray some hairspray on your locks and use a clean toothbrush to tame those stray hairs – it will work better than a comb. Use the same method as the above flyaway step — spray the head of your toothbrush with hairspray to give your brow hairs some hold and brush them into place.
Hack Number 2: Prevent split ends when you sleep is especially important if you want to take care of your long hair properly. Even though sleeping seems peaceful enough, you don’t totally know what goes on when you shut your eyes and fall asleep. Don’t go to bed with tons of tangles in your hair that could only get worse while you’re tossing in the night. If you are comfortable sleeping with your hair up, then tie your hair into a loose loop on the very top of your head with a scarf or hair band.
Hack Number 3: Has it ever happened to you to make the perfect hairstyle, secure it with many bobby pins so that in a few moments later they magically slide out, leaving your hair a mess? Girls always complain that bobby pins are useless as they never seem to hold their hair in place. Well, the truth is that bobby pins can hold the most beautiful hairstyle in place for hours, only if you know how to place them correctly! If you have a hard time keeping your bobby pins in place, flip the pin over to ensure a better grip. Make sure that you place the wavy side facing down and the straight side up. Yes, this means putting them in upside down! Also, arranging the pins in a criss-cross shape will ensure additional hold. This bobby pin trick will take your beauty game to the next level!
Hack Number 4: One of the main problems with thin hair is that it falls flat and shapeless when it is in a ponytail. But now you can make your ponytail pop by using just two bobby pins. Here is how to give yourself that “wow” factor that will leave everyone asking what your secret is! Once you have put your hair in a high ponytail, flip your hair in front of your face and place two bobby pins vertically into your ponytail holder to give it a little extra lift. And always remember to use good quality bobby pins. It may be a little bit more expensive, but it will definitely make a huge difference!
Hack Number 5: One of the most iconic and secret formulas used for numerous beauty hacks is probably hidden in the back of your medicine cabinet – your Vaseline. It’s a miracle cream which can be used to fix virtually any beauty problem. Applying a small amount of Vaseline directly on your lashes helps them to grow longer, thicker, and stronger. Use a clean mascara brush to gently apply the Vaseline on your lashes before you go to bed. Leave it on overnight, and then rinse it off with warm water in the morning. This is an amazing way to naturally grow lustrous and voluminous lashes! Apply some Vaseline on your face, too! This way you won’t worry about clogged pores, acne or dry skin. No wonder Vaseline has been so popular for more than 140 years – and with a good reason.
Hack Number 6: The teeth whitening procedure is all the rage today with tons of options becoming available, from professional treatments using lasers to complex gels to teeth whitening strips to whitening kits that can be purchased over the counter. However, not everyone is familiar with is the baking soda method to whiten teeth. This is a girly hack worth knowing! In a small cup, mix half a teaspoon of baking soda with a few drops of water to make it into a paste, dip your clean brush into the paste and gently brush for a minute. You should repeat the process of brushing your teeth with baking soda every other day for one or two weeks. You will notice a slight difference in the whiteness of your teeth after just a few days, and a substantial difference after a couple of weeks!
