There are days when you love your hair. And then, there are the dreaded bad hair days when you simply wish you had a magic wand for your hair.

There may not be a magic wand to serve the purpose but we bring you five best tips to handle bad hair days and turn it into style statements. Beauty expert and the founder of cosmetic brand SeaSoul Cosmeceuticals Manisha Chopra shares:

1. Dry wash

At times, you don’t have the time or simply are not in the mood for a hair wash. (Shutterstock)

Dry shampoo can be a saviour. Spray it lightly on the roots. Leave it for a few minutes and then brush your hair. The dry shampoo absorbs the oil and gives you your desired look. If you do not use a dry shampoo, then try out cornstarch or baby powder. They, too, can work wonders on unruly hair.

2. Deal with frizz

Pony tails are the best way to sort frizzy hair.

You woke up from your deep slumber and realised that your hair has become frizzy. Fret not. The mess can be treated by just tying it up. A ponytail has many variations, try any one of those low or high ponytail styles or go for a chic fish-braid. But ensure that you haven’t tied your ponytail too tight as it can cause hair loss.

3. Curl it up

Adding more curls can give volume to your hair. Try adding curls naturally by making loose braids on your hair and then leaving it open after a few minutes. If you have a curling iron at home, here’s what you can do to get bouncy tresses. Tie your hair up in a high pony tail. Split it into four sections and then curl each section separately. Open the ponytail and prepare to be wowed by what you see in the mirror.

4. Accessorise

Bad hair day or not, a dramatic hairclip always works.

Try out wacky or vibrant accessories such as velvety headbands, a cute bow or funky hair clips, which will take the limelight away from your hair that may not be looking so great on a given day.

5. Undercover

You may be in a hurry and do not have the leisure to use a gel and a styling tool. A simple way is to cover it all up - A colourful head scarf, a bold turban headband or a bright scarf draped over your head can come to your rescue on such situations.
