3. Taming the frizz with a mist of water and a scarf

If you watch a lot of style tutorials you will notice some women like to tame their hair with moisture and then use the scarf to set the style and help the hair lay flat.

This works well for braided styles when you want to keep your edges neat and under control. I prefer to use a satin scarf for this because it works well and it does not dry out your hair especially after just adding water.

Leave the scarf on for at least 15 minutes before removing to go about your day. If you do this daily you might be able to extend the style at least by one week.

4. Temporary spray color to give you a new twist and refresh an old style

Spray color is a lot of fun, and there are many to choose from so you can get as creative as you want to. If you have an old style that needs a bit of revamping you can add color for flare especially in the frizzy areas.

When you do this your style moves from frizzy to funky really fast and that is always a great thing.


5. Lay edges down overnight with gel/butter and a satin scarf

Neat edges can make any hairstyle seem like new so if you have a butter or gel that you like to use then why not start the process overnight so that you do not have to do it in the morning.

The trick with this one is to make sure you have enough product to keep your hair in place. If you are anything like me then wild sleep can disturb the gel and shift the hair which defeats the purpose.

I prefer to set my hair about 15 minutes or so before bed, allow the product to ‘dry’, and then head off to sleepy land. That way my style is set and all I am doing is preserving it over night.

Once you have the knack for extending your styles, you might be tempted to get as much out of them as possible. We would still urge that you figure out when it is absolutely time for you to wash your hair and do so.

Even though extending a style can be super convenient we still have to ensure that we are cleansing our scalp and keeping it very healthy as well.
