NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - Osar Blandi, hair stylist to the stars, says no matter the hat, he's got a way to prevent the dreaded 'hat head.' The term refers to what wearing hat on your head will do to your hair style like make it flat, greasy or filled with fly-aways.
1. Beanie hat- When you take the hat off, use some glossing cream or silicon oil to take away the fly aways Use dry shampoo to increase volume after being under a hat; plus it will help if your hair looks oily or greasy if you have worn the hat for a while.
2. Felt halt- Pulling your hair into a low ponytail or into loose pigtails braids, such as the French braid side twist, is actually a safe way to avoid hat hair The French braid side twist is great for getting bangs out of the way and avoiding that awkward hair dent that occurs when you only braid the bottom tips.
3. Hoodie- These sorts of hats tend flatten your roots from the front of the hairline to the center of your head. Texturize the front of your hair line by using a dry shampoo and a volumizing spray with a little shake/ tousle when applied. Make sure hair is completely dry when you put a hat on or else it tends to dry frizzly and messy under a coat hood.
4. All hats- The cold air will cause frizzy hair and fly-aways. To prevent that from happening, use silicone-based cream. Keratin Complex Express at the Oscar Blandi salon is a one-hour treatment that will add moisture to your hair that will last you the entire cold season.
