Instead of letting it ruin my day, I usually spritz it with my favorite dry shampoo, fluff it up and wrap it into a bun. I also will make it a point to add one of my favorite hair accessories so it neutralizes any less than wonderful feelings about how my hair is misbehaving.
Over the years I have also developed some great "bad hair" affirmations I say that help me reset my mind from feeling unhappy about my hair or appearance to feeling great.
I'm a big believer in affirmations due to the recommendation of a former fitness trainer who encouraged me to listen to affirmations while working out to help adjust my attitude. For me, they work. Do they work for everyone? They may or may not, but it never hurts to give them a try.
Listed below are some of my own hair affirmations that I use when having a bad hair day, feeling blah about my hair or just in general.
Feel free to try them out. If you believe they are working, you might want to make a CD with your favorite music playing in the background as you repeat the affirmations over and over.
