Helpful Hacks to Tame Flyaways

Think about it—your hair goes through a lot between being brushed, styled, and put up in a ponytail. More often than not, you'll end up with a handful of stray hairs once you're done fixing your 'do, but where do all these annoying baby hairs come from? Newsflash: they're signs of your hair breaking or being pulled straight away from your head. Sure we have lots of hair, so it's easy to ignore, but at a certain point, those flyaways can get out of hand. So put down the brush, pick up a comb, and read up on these products we love and other helpful hacks.

Helpful hacks: 

1. Spritz hairspray on an old toothbrush (or repurpose a cleaned mascara brush!) and use the bristles to smooth and tame flyaways without disturbing the rest of your hair.

2. Although it may seem strange, dryer sheets work wonders for a lot of things, calming static being one of them. If you find your flyaways stick straight up in the air, rub a dryer sheet between your hands then work them through your hair.

3. Sometimes your hair simply won't let you win. In this case, strap those flyaways down under a cute headband!
