    36 Awesome Hair Hacks For Every Type Of Hair

    Get your hair on point.

    1. Add volume by teasing the top of your ponytail.

    2. Give yourself a fuller ponytail — instantly — with this easy trick.

    3. Or use a clip to give your pony more lift.

    4. Follow these easy tips for more volume.

    5. Fine and thin hair is especially prone to heat damage. To keep your hair in good shape, turn the heat down on your styling tools to around 350 degrees, max, and use a thermal protection product.

    6. To keep your fine, thin hair from feeling greasy, only apply conditioner to the bottom three-fourths of your hair, and keep conditioner away from your roots.

    7. Don't wrap your hair in a towel — blot it instead!

    8. Make your braid seem thicker by “pancaking” it.

    9. Breathe new life into thin, fine hair by simply switching up your part!

    10. Put dry shampoo in your hair at night, rather than in the morning.

    11. Thick hair needs major taming, and a Wet Brush can help detangle your hair while you're in the shower.

    12. Girls with thick hair need extra-strong bobby pins! To get yours in fighting shape, spray them with hairspray before putting them in your hair.

    13. To prevent having to curl your hair for a million years, try using a small-barreled curling iron and wrapping bigger chunks of hair around it.

    14. Okay, so this kind of looks insane, but for a really powerful deep conditioning treatment for thick hair, apply leave-in conditioner to the ends and middle of your damp hair, and then wrap in plastic wrap or tie in a bag.

    The bag actually helps to trap the heat, which helps the hair absorb more leave-in conditioner more. But be careful not to leave on for too long — one to three hours is a great amount of time to get all that deep conditioning goodness locked in.

    15. Use a bit of hairspray on your hairbrush before running it through your hair — it'll help keep your hair from poofing up.

    16. Switch out your regular towel with a microfiber hair towel or turban. It'll cut down on your drying time.

    17. Are your ponytails way too heavy for your head? Fake a full pony with this easy trick!

    18. The comb you use can make all the difference.

    19. So can the the way you dry your hair. Ditch your towel and grab a T-shirt for optimal drying. It'll reduce frizz and breakage you might get from a harsher towel.

    20. Or try plopping, which is a T-shirt toweling technique that promises perfect curls every. damn. time.

    21. To keep your curls fresh to death between washes, spritz a combination of half water, half leave-in conditioner on your ends.

    22. To keep your curls on lock, don't bother shampooing all of your hair every time you shower — just 'poo the roots.

    23. Apply conditioner to your hair BEFORE you get in the shower, and wear a shower cap.

    24. Protect your curls by sleeping with a pineapple updo.

    25. Don't forget your mantra.

    26. If you're having a static reaction from your hairbrush, wrap it in a dryer sheet and you should be good to go.

    27. Never lose another ponytail holder ever again.

    28. To get simple, laidback waves, twist sections your hair and then run a hair straightener down the sections.

    29. To get the best blow dry, make sure you've got the hairdryer on low and keep the dryer directed from the top, not the side of your head.

    30. Likewise, the way you hold your curling iron can change the way your curls come out.

    31. You've probably been doing this wrong since forever, but bobby pins are meant to be bumpy side down!

    32. Get your baby hairs in order by spraying a toothbrush with hairspray and using it to smooth them down.

    33. Spray your favorite perfume onto your hairbrush to make your hair smell super delicioso.

    34. A toothbrush also works wonders when it comes to helping you get grimy, gross gunk out of your hairdryer filter.

    35. Give your pony some extra punch by sticking a couple of bobby pins at the base.

    36. And remember:
