5 Easy Hair Fixes To Get You Out Of A Rut

1772632533. Experiment with Length

Clip-ins or faux bobs can be a great way to experiment with length and even color. For lighter shades you might prefer not to risk damaging your own hair so use a clip in. Not only do they add color but they are a great way to add volume and length as well.

It can also be a nice way to go shorter without the long term repercussion of an actual haircut. Braid your actual hair underneath almost like you would for a sew-in and add the clips to that. This probably isn’t the best idea for long term use as it will inevitably cause hair damage, but it can be a fun new look for a couple of days. Another great option is the faux bob. A style for longer hair, just tuck your ends underneath and pin. It’s a quick an easy way to achieve the bob look, again, without the commitment.

4. Texture Change

Sounds weird, but what I mean is switch up the way you wear your hair on a regular basis. If you wear it straight? Try a fun braid out or twist out, maybe even some bantu knots. Wear it curly all the time? Grab some heat protectant and straighten it out!

A different style can be just the change you need and in some cases it can even give your hair a much deserved break. If you’re feeling even more daring (and committed) try out some braids for a while. You can choose between lots of different styles and lengths.

5. Wigs


There was a time where the mere mention of wigs conjured up thoughts of grandmas and church aunts. Today, there are so many different, natural wig options that you almost have no reason not to try them. Lace front wigs can provide full protection while also offering up a new style (double win). Try a 3/4 wig for sew-in like blending. The textures, colors, and styles are endless so get out of that rut and for goodness sakes, have a little fun!

    I usually would go for Senegalese twists when I get overwhelmed with my hair, but I think I will try these tips. Especially the color! Thinking about burnt auburn 🙂
