Unusual trends pop up in all kinds of places, so it’s no surprise that there’s some pretty strange trends when it comes to hairstyles, hair colors, and hair treatments. Here are a few of our favorite unusual hair trends over the last millennium. Please note, these are not hair trends to try on your favorite wig, as they can do a lot of damage.
Dust Your Hair with Makeup – Most of us have heard the baby powder trick for making oily hair look freshly washed. But, did you know that you can get an even better result by taking loose face powder and lightly brushing it over the roots of your hair to soak up excess oil.
Fix Hair Color with Aspirin – Apparently aspirin can cure more than just a headache. Stylists in the know use a couple of crushed aspirin mixed with water as a way to fix hair discolorations that come from swimming in chlorine.
Straightening Hair with a Shot – A shot of vodka, that is. Some stylists swear by adding a shot of vodka to your conditioner when you’re washing your hair to make your strands straighter without having to use a flat iron or other type of heat tool.
Get a Natural Wave with Sea Salt – Instead of opting for pricey sprays that promise perfect beach hair, people are recreating their own saltwater inspired look by mixing sea salt and water in a spray bottle and spritzing it on damp hair for perfect post-beach wavy hair.
