I cut my hair and I regret it! We leave you tips on how to deal with a haircut you don’t like.
I cut my hair and I regret it. This is the motto for our article that intends to help everyone to deal with a look less appreciated. The truth is that sometimes that cut that we like so much seeing that actress or singer does not produce the same effect on our hair or face, making us feel neither beautiful nor wonderful.
In these cases, you have to be calm, not panic or dramatize and, above all, look for simple and practical solutions, able to get around the problem. It is precisely these suggestions that we present to you, taking into account the various types of cuts that you may have made.
I cut my hair and I regret it. What do I do?
Have you cut or made a fringe, but after all, you don’t like to see yourself with that look? Take it easy. As long as it doesn’t grow, it can always adapt and even disguise it. Brush the fringe to the side smoothing the strands well or use hairpins, headbands, clips and other hair accessories capable of holding the fringe.
This type of cut can lead to a problem: hair without volume and movement. In this case, and to try to recover these characteristics of the hair, you should do a good brushing and then curl the hair from the ends to the roots, using your fingers and separating the hair into sections.
Finish by securing with hairpins and spraying with a little dry spray. Let it act and then release. Finish off with a repair tip and get a look with more volume and movement.
hair with a lot of volume
If in some cases the lack of volume is a problem, in others it is the scarcity of this characteristic that constitutes the problem. The idea that straight cuts help reduce volume, for example, is fallacious. So, if you’ve done this cut and your hair is too frizzy, you can always opt for another cut, this time in layers.
If this is not an option for you, then invest in finishers. For example, those with curly hair can apply a little mousse to damp strands and simply dry them with a towel, pressing the strands from the ends to the roots.
As for wavy hair, the best solution is to twist the strands of hair while they are still damp and release them when the strands are dry. It is also important to use a shampoo and conditioner for voluminous hair and always comb it with a wide-toothed wooden comb.
Layered or layered hair
Layered and layered hair has a tendency to split, which, of course, is not to everyone’s taste. If you feel that this is happening to your hair and you don’t like it, then proceed to straighten your hair well, first applying a protector and finishing with a little argan oil, from the length to the ends.
Often, the problem is having cut your hair too much and not being able to get used to that image in the mirror. In this case, do not dramatize, because the hair will grow back. According to experts, well-nourished hair can grow up to 1.5 cm per month. Until then, you can always follow some of our suggestions, such as:
- Bet on creative hairstyles and stylish accessories;
- Make-up capable of diverting attention from the hair;
- Apply extensions that can be the color of your hair or, on the other hand, of a contrasting tone;
- Straightening the strands well gives the feeling of hair with a longer length.

- Look for a qualified, reliable and experienced professional who knows how to advise you;
- Avoid radical cuts that change your appearance too much. Make gradual changes so that you get used to it;
- Use existing online cutting simulators;
- Before choosing the cut, consider your style and the shape of your face.
