Mama always knows best, right? When it comes to just about everything in life, my mom does! I feel like most teenagers grow up thinking their moms don’t know what they are talking about, but then life comes full-circle and we quickly realize they really know all of the best stuff! I’m so excited to be here today with my mom sharing some of the best secrets about hair that she’s taught me! Among many other things, she’s an expert in hair so I feel like I learned from the best!
My mom would never admit that she is an expert, but I am so lucky to have learned some of the best hair secrets from her! She actually was a licensed hair stylist for many years, so she really does know what’s she’s talking about! Now I’m going to share them all with YOU!
SLEEP WITH HAIR IN LOOSE PONYTAIL ON TOP OF HEAD
One of the best kept secrets is to sleep with your hair UP. I do this when I remember to, and my hair always has the most volume on the next day after I do this. Be sure to use a loose elastic so you don’t have a crease
CHANGE SHAMPOO/CONDITIONER OFTEN (ONCE A MONTH)
I have been doing this as long as I can remember, and it’s a tip I learned from my mom! She also always recommends to use salon grade products and look for sulfate-free shampoos.
HAIR IS SHINY AND CLEANER LOOKING WHEN YOU BLOW DRY
We are trying out this new Conair InfinitiPRO blow dryer and can attest that hair looks more shiny and healthier if you blow dry versus air drying. This dryer has some POWER, too! It’s definitely professional quality for a fraction of the price! We’ve loved having it around.
NEVER GO TO BED WITH A WET HEAD
Goes back to blow drying is always better, but never sleep with your hair wet!
BLOW DRY UPSIDE DOWN AND AWAY FROM YOUR NATURAL PART FOR VOLUME
We tried this trick with the Conair InifintiPRO that you can find at Target and it’s definitely the truth! I also feel like whenever I blow dry, I can go longer in between washes!
BLOW DRY EVERY MORNING (EVEN WHEN HAIR IS DRY) TO FRESHEN
My mom swears by this! She blow drys her hair to freshen it up every day before styling! It wakes your roots up before you start styling!
APPLY DRY SHAMPOO AT NIGHT
When you need dry shampoo, apply at night time before you sleep! Then when you wake up, blow dry to freshen!
You can find the Conair InfinitiPRO blow dryer that we’ve been using at Target! I highly recommend, especially for the price point! It’s compact and has quite a bit of power along with two different attachments for your hair type! I think it would even make a great Mother’s Day gift if your mom or you are in need of a new blow dryer!

What are some hair secrets you have learned along the way? Did you gain them from your mom teaching you or did you learn from someone else? I am thankful my mom taught me everything she knows about hair (and life). Moms are truly a gift from above!
