Since there are various types of bobby pins, thought this would avoid the confusion.

Note: When you will use a bobby pin, the wrong way, your hair will more likely break the time you will try to remove it from your hair.

B) Hair Comb:

The two most important hair comb/brush that every girl and woman should have on her dressing table are:

a) Wide Tooth Comb:

This will help in detangling your hair, quickly and easily.

Wide-Tooth-Comb

b) Rat Tail Comb:

This will help in precise sectioning or parting of the hair.

Rat-Tooth-Comb

Note: Do you use plastic hair combs? If yes, then…

You should replace it with Wooden Combs as shown in the picture above. Such combs are made out of the wood of sandalwood tree, neem tree, rosewood tree, and other such herbal trees.

Why?

With Wooden Combs you could avoid breaking of hair, drying of hair due to combing and static hair problem too. Hence you should invest on wooden hair combs.

C) Hair Spray:

For setting your hairstyle and for keeping it frizz free, instead of using a chemical infused hair spray, make your own hair spritz at home.

For this you will need:

  • Spray Bottle
  • Water
  • Glycerin
  • Olive Oil

Take a Spray Bottle and fill its 2/4th with water.1/4th of Glycerin and 1/4th portion of Olive Oil should then be mixed in it. Shake well the bottle before use. Then soon after you finish styling your hair, spray this homemade hair spray on it. This will help the hair frizz free and manageable for a considerate time.

Note: Use this only on special days and events.
