6 Ways To Deal With A Bad Hair Day Without Losing Your Cool

Angry african american woman with hands on her headStep away from the scissors, step — awayfromthe scissors! There is no way I can sit here in front of this laptop to write this post and not admit that my current situation is an epic bad hair day.

I knew it would happen, sometimes we can anticipate having a bad hair day just from what we did not do the night before.

If you are relaxed maybe you decided not to wrap your hair, or if you are natural like me, then maybe you went to bed with your hair dry as a bag of Frito lays potato chips, still in the same tired bun from a day ago and too tired to even care.

I know that sounds bad but honestly I always have a contingency plan depending on the situation. And I would definitely advise you to have a plan B for those days when all is not right with your world.

Otherwise you might find yourself pulling the sheets over your head and calling your boss pretending you have a sore throat or something.

Here are 6 ways you can deal with a bad hair day without totally losing it.

1. Co-wash and wet bun – If your hair is dry and you are heading in the direction of a bad hair day, moisture is always a great treat and solution to restore your faith in your regimen.


You have to take a bath anyway so why not take the opportunity to get your hair hydrated and wet styled all at the same time. Water and conditioner is all you need to help you to smooth your hair neatly into a bun or ponytail.

Co-wash while in the shower or bath and then once you are out you can then use a styling product like gel to get the crown flat and your edges smooth. For the ponytail, gently squeeze out the excess water, wrap in a simple bun without pulling tight and tuck your ends.

Quick Tip – If your hair is dripping a lot after wet bunning, the best solution is to tie it down as neatly as possible then wrap it in something absorbent to get rid of the excess water. After about 20 minutes or so you can use a touch more styling product to smooth any flyaway’s.
