Okay everyone! I am so excited to share my very favorite go-to hacks for my hair!
These three amazing tricks give me salon looks at home with little or NO cost !
Let's get started!

Step 1: Soda Can Rollers!
You will not believe the incredible volume you will get with this low cost,up-cycle hair hack!
I found this trick by accident, when I went as white trash to a party one year. I used coke cans as a funny part of my costume, but then when I took them out at the end of night I was IN LOVE with my voluminous locks!
Step 2: Wash and Dry Cans
I'm using the 7.5 ounce cans, but the 12 ounce ones are great too! Be sure to wash and fully dry your cans first.
If there is any water left, it could wet your hair, and mess with your curl, so be sure to dry them fully!
Step 3: Tools
You'll need to following:
- Hair dryer
- Bobby or hair pins
- Spritz bottle with water
- Soda cans( your choice of size and how many) I used 7 size 7.5
Step 4: Comb and Spritz
Comb out your fully dry hair, and lightly spritz it with water. If you use too much water, the curl won't set, so just a fine misting.
Step 5: Piece and Roll
Separate out a front chunk of hair, and roll the hair under, all the way down to the scalp.
Step 6: Secure Hair
Secure each can-roller with two pins. Pin the hair behind each curl, tightly beneath the can.
Step 7: Repeat!
Do at least three cans on top of the head, for full volume, then move on to the side hair. I did two cans on each side. 7 total.
Step 8: Blow Dry and Wait
Once hair is fully rolled, Blow dry on high for about 10 minutes. Then you can either take them out immediately, for a subtle lift, or keep them in for at least an hour for more volume. I left mine for an hour this time. The longer you leave them in, the stronger the curl!
Carefully remove pins and unroll hair. Shake out your hair, and prepare to be amazed at your volume!
Pump it up baby! DIY style!
Step 9: De-frizz With Dryer Sheets!
If you are anything like me, your hair has terribly frizzy days! I have damaged, naturally wavy hair, so some days I need a little help making my locks silky smooth.
You are going to LOVE this cheap, amazing hair hack! I get soooooo many compliments every time I do this. Let's get started!
Step 10: Make Your Magic Comb
Simply push a comb's bristles through a dryer sheet. That's it.....seriously.
Step 11: Use Your Magic Comb!
Start at the top of your head, and work your way down through your hair.
That is it! The results are awesome! For someone with natural wave in my hair, I'm amazed that this is my result with NO HEAT OR PRODUCTS!
Brazilian blow out? No thanks, I have my dollar store dryer sheets!
Step 12: High Hair Without the Ratting!
Okay, we've all tried once or twice to get that super high ratted look right? Whether for a costume, or a special occasion up-do, we've all been there. But ratting is not only hard to do, it is SOOOO bad your your hair! So why not get the look, without the damage? All you need is an old sock! .....Stay with me, seriously it works!
Step 13: Pick Your Color!
Be sure to choose a color close to your own hair color, so that if it peeks through a bit, it won't matter.
Step 14: Make Your Bump!
Simply roll your sock down into a little donut, then tuck the end under. You don't need to cut anything! Turn it on it's side, and you are done!
Step 15: Add Bump!
Separate out a large frontal chunk of your hair, and keep it aside with a twisty or clip. Then Pin your sock to your head with several bobby pins. Socks are porous, so they pin quite easily. They are also soft, and full so they make a great alternative to products that are hard, thin and painful to wear.
Step 16: Pin Your Hair
Pull your front piece of hair back over your bump, and secure it with bobby pins.
Be sure to spread it evenly across the front of your bump.
Step 17: Enjoy the "High" Life
Enjoy your super easy, supper comfy, essentially FREE high hair style!
