Hats: tips against flying and flat hair


She's nice and warm, such a woolly headg

ear. But hats and hair don't always go well. How to avoid flying hair, flat ponies, and sticky roots.

Scandal! Cap crushed hairstyle

Much of our body heat is lost through the head. So it's smart to cover your hair with warm wool in winter. The whole thing has only one small flaw: the hairstyle. Or rather the non-hairstyle when removing the hatEither the hair extremely claps at the base (trapper hat with ear flaps), it is worn halfway down (beret, etc.) or it flies and crackles (plastic or fleece hat). So: freeze or annoy - what to do? Here is our five-phase problem avoidance.

Phase 1: You don't have a hat yet?

Reach for large models that fall loosely and leave plenty of space for the hair. Berets are good when they are slightly reinforced at the edge, i.e. stick out a bit and not press the hair flat onto the scalp from above. The ideal hat fabric is wool when it comes to keeping moisture out. Cotton protects against excessive charging (and fly hair). If you shop for a trendy item made of polyamide, you can avoid statically charged hair if a light lining made of real silk is sewn into the hat.

Phase 2: Winter care offensive

Always use a conditioner after washing to help retain moisture in the hair. Because not only that coat collars and hats rub against the hair and "open" its protective layer, winter weather also causes hair to swell. The result: Moisture can evaporate, the mane flies and becomes brittle. Everything that provides moisture is therefore recommended. And prefer styling that feels like care, such as hair cream, hair oil, or anti-frizz serum.

Phase 3: Adjust the styling

Especially with fine lint, spray a volume spray into towel-dried hair and blow-dry it on a medium heat setting. Hold the strands at a 90-degree angle to the scalp and calmly style the hair back and forth, i.e. in the opposite direction. Example: If you always wear a side parting on the left side, blow-dry your hair on the right side first and then again on the left side at the end. Then rub a pea-sized dollop of hairdressing cream well into the palms of your hands and gently rub it over your hair. An alternative for fine hair: spray a little hairspray into the palms of the hands and then rub it over the head. It is better to use all other styling products in the office, as the heat could cause them to stick under the hat.

Phase 4: put on your hat

The following applies: it is best to work from back to front and briefly push the hair upwards with your fingers beforehand. In this way, the pony is spared unwanted flatness. However, if it should be completely smooth for styling reasons, put the hat on vertically from above.

Phase 5: hat off - the hairstyle afterward

First step: reach into the hair with your fingers from below and knead the hair upwards. Comb charged fly hair with a wooden or natural bristle brush. Platte Ponys lifts dry shampoo: spray in from bottom to top and massage in with fingertips. Finally, distribute styling cream or light hair oil in the palms of your hands and stroke through and over your hair; also like to twirl individual strands and lay them in waves. Tip for frizzled hair and dents in the hair: spray in heat protection spray and at least apply the top hair with the hair straightener.
