If there is one complaint that most women have about their hair, it’s mostly about the annoying cowlick! Bangs were a huge trend in 2014 and if that continues on in this new year, it is important for you to be able to deal with the problem effectively. There is nothing worse than having a set of bangs that poke up or get split down the middle. Luckily, this case is not irreparable.
But did you know that you can also suffer from cowlicks even if you don’t have bangs? Check out below for tips on how to deal with cowlicks, whether or not you have bangs:
• Cut your bangs longer (or make it thicker) so it is easier to control and does not weigh down easily.
• After washing, do not wait for your bangs to dry. Blow dry it immediately. This is a good measure to take to ensure that your bangs do not settle on its own. If your bangs had dried, re-wet them so you can blow dry it to the shape you want.
• When blow drying your bangs, pull it towards one direction while blow drying and holding it in position for a few seconds. Then, repeat the same process only this time blow drying your hair towards the opposite direction. This will help you achieve more precision control when styling and give it lots of body.
• When you do not have bangs, use a round brush and root volumiser to prep your hairstyle.
• Use a root pumping product and apply it on the hair along the hairline. This will provide more texture and hold to your hair, while also ensuring that the style lasts throughout the day.
• If you find that round brushing your hair in an upward and downward motion is still causing cowlicks to appear, try up and forward or backwards. Brushing your hair towards different directions can prevent hair from going limp.
• Use the cool setting on your blow dryer when your hair has dried. Use a round brush as you blow dry to give it lots of body.
