Diply Hairstyling Hacks

This is a legacy post that has been given a facelift. Content is the same but has been edited for clarity and readability. Enjoy!

Through some flavor of social media, I came across this article from Diply. Most of the, “hacks,” this Diply list offers, though, are fairly common knowledge for those interested in beauty. Nothing groundbreaking or inventive. Tips on how to use bobby pins, curl with flat irons, etc.


Then I reached the third page and saw number 8. See for yourself.

Diply Hairstyling HacksHow the hell is this a hack? It’s been a few years since I’ve had bangs, but washing my whole head would be easier, quicker (drying might take longer, but still!), and result in less mess. Suuure, wash your hair in the sink, they say. It’s easy, they say. Is it effortless the same way the ladies in skincare commercials wash their face at the sink, splashing water everywhere like a damn Magikarp?


It’s no secret that I am hilariously lazy about styling my hair. Dry shampoo (this is my favorite!) was easily the best hair-related discovery I’ve made in the last 3 years.

Really – precisely how is this a hack? It’s inconvenient, and sure – front and center will look fresh and clean, but if the remainder of your hair is visibly dirty or oily, washing just the bangs isn’t going to make you look well-groomed. If anything, it will highlight the discrepancy between condition of your bangs and the rest of your hair.

The Bottom Line

My advice? Disregard these quack Diply hairstyling hacks. Get some dry shampoo, use it this way, and win at hair laziness. Don’t push it, though; dry shampoo is a tool, not a miracle worker.
