10 Great Hair Care Tips

10 Great Hair Care Tips
By: Darla Di Grandi-Aguilera

If you watch the tabloids, you know that even the stars have bad hair days. It just seems that when the professional stylists are out of the picture, it is inherently human to have a less than glamorous mane. But you can do your part to stay ahead of the battle by following these great tips for hair care.

1. Use a professional conditioner that is formulated for your specific hair type. While you can skimp a little on the shampoo, a good, professional conditioner is a must have. Look for products in salons that are customized for your hair type. For instance: If you have color or a perm, choose a conditioner that is for chemically processed hair. And stay away from those all-in-one shampoo and conditioner combos.

2. Choose a cut tailored to your face and body shape. The number one mistake that people make when choosing a new hairstyle is to pick a style based on popularity rather than how it will enhance their features. Always choose a new cut based on how it will enhance or detract from your facial features and build. If you have broad shoulders, choose a full-bodied cut over a close cropped head hugging doo.

3. Don?t forget your UV protectants. Just as your skin gets damaged by wind and sun, so does your hair. To combat this, look for finishing products such as mousses, gels and sprays that block UV rays.

4. Keep your appointments. Did you know that your hair will split faster than it will grow? You need to get a trim every 6 to 8 weeks, even if it?s just a micro trim. A good hairdresser makes them good because they know what to leave on the head, not take off.

5. Leave chemicals to the professionals. There is a reason why beauticians need to go to school to learn how to handle chemicals and hair processes. You can do irreparable damage with these products even if the package says that it?s way easy. And even if you don?t make your hair fall out, you could end up looking like a clown and paying a stylist big bucks to fix your mess. (Note: Most stylists charge double the rate for corrective color than they do for normal color processes)

6. Get color for interest and body. Every cut needs a little bit of color to make it truly breathtaking. No matter whether your taste is subtle or dramatic, you can add interest and volume to your tresses with a color process. Highlights, lowlights, all over color, gray coverage, you name it, it?s all good for your look.

7. Do weekly conditioning treatments. Even if your hair is extremely healthy, it is constantly on the attack from wind, sun, cold and heat. During the summer months, your hair is battered even more when it absorbs chlorine and other chemicals from your pool.

8. Get an ionic ceramic flat iron. Instead of frying your hair with a conventional metal plated flat iron. Straighten your tresses, add shine and infuse moisture with one of the a negative ionic flat irons. We personally use T3 irons for all our work.

9. Choose your styling products wisely. Avoid products that leave build-up on your hair. If you see white gunk, that means that your product is not water-soluble and may be coating your hair shaft. Build-up causes limpness, breakage and inability to curl not to mention the white flakes.

10. Did you know that if you use a towel after your shower to dry your hair you are causing split ends and adding static electricity to your hair. Don?t rub the towel back and forth over your hair, scrunch the towel around your hair like your would scrunch crackers in your soup.

While all of these tips won?t make you look like you?ve hired a personal hairdresser, they will help you look the very best that you can each and every day. When it comes to hair care, remember that you wear your hair everyday. Now isn?t it worth the time, effort and money that it takes to keep it looking spectacular?

Tips For Selecting A Style.
« Reply #1 on: June 19, 2007, 03:21:13 PM »

What Category?

What one person perceives as 'short' varies greatly with another person. Our breakdown is as follows:

VERY SHORT: The weight line of the hair is at or above the ear line.

SHORT:  The cut line is between the ear and the jaw line.

MEDIUM:  The weight line is between the jaw and the shoulder.

LONG:  Below the shoulder.

FUNKY:  All sizes, shapes and lengths, ranging from the chic to the crazy.

If you think you would like a 'short' style', you should bracket and also look at all of the 'very short' and 'medium' styles as the differences are at times slight.

Ignore the age, race, size and hair color of the model. Most styles will fit any age group and hair color is an easy adjustment. Don't let these be a tool to narrow your list of potential styles or cuts.

Face Matching:

The mathematical rules for selecting a style to match your face are complicated. Some easy rules of thumb are these:

WEIGHT OR CUT LINE: At some point most cuts have a sharp line or accent line. Be sure this line is at your best feature as the viewers eye will naturally focus on that spot. Make doubly sure that line or accent doesn't point to your worst feature. If your nose is somewhat generous, you don't want people focused on it.

LENGTH: Many women wear long hair because their significant other demands it, or because the female is insecure and hides behind her hair. Both of these reasons suck. You should wear the hair style 'best' suited to you, and as long as you are hiding behind your hair, your confidence level can't increase and will therefor affect your earnings and success in life.

Far too many women wear long hair far too late in life. It makes them look older, not younger.

Most women finally hack their hair off the same day they file for divorce. Interesting side note don't you think.

Long hair is fine and can even look beautiful, just make sure you keep it long for the right reasons and that it makes you look great.

COLOR and CURL:  If you are a brunette and want to have platinum hair, you might as well forget it. It most cases it can't be done, and in the few cases where it can be bleached often enough over the course of several days, your hair is shot and will soon be gone.

Color should be compatible with your skin tone, and accent your eyes. If there is a red tint to your skin, red hair will not be flattering and does not work well with brown eyes either.

Stick within your race. Blonde hair on a black or asian woman looks as dumb as corn rows on a pasty white girl. Celebrate your cultural difference, its much sexier.

Surrender to the natural laws of chemistry and biology. Some hair types just will not curl no matter how often it is permed and some curl is likely to remain no matter how many relaxers are put on. Live within these limits or you will cause yourself much grief.

CELEBS, MODELS AND MAINTENANCE: ALL HAIR requires some degree of maintenance and some require more than others. Make sure your hair style fits your life style. A Meg Ryan cut only looks good on Meg Ryan and even if your stylist has the talent to give you the same cut, you are still not going to look like Meg Ryan, in fact, you may look downright silly with the same cut. Be yourself, and getting the cut that looks best on you, will make you MUCH more attractive than some celeb knock off.

If you absolutely must have the celeb cut, here are a few things to keep in mind:

1. Remember which movie. There are many Meg Ryan hair cuts over the years and if you and your stylist are not on the same page it is not going to be the most rewarding experience of your life.

2. What you saw Meg Ryan wearing in the movie is backed with an army of the most talented stylists in the world that are touching her hair up EVERY FEW MINUTES. Trust me, I have worked on these sets. Unless you can command the same level of attention for your hair, it is not going to work.

3. The same goes for hair styles on models. When you see them off location you will hardly recognize them. Some are down right ugly and plain. Added to the time and talent spent for a shoot, before the picture made the cover it went to a touch-up artist who spent about $10,000 getting that picture ready by removing every stray hair and covering every skin blemish and wrinkle.

YOUR STYLIST: Last but most important, find a good stylist. If you spend $9.95 on a cut you are likely to get your money's worth. Few stylists are really good, so hunt them out. If you need some hints about discovering a good stylist you may want to read, 'How To Find A Good Stylist.'

Well, that should about do it. Armed with this knowledge you can now go through the site with a much higher degree of success of finding the new style for you.

How To Shake Dandruff Flakes Away
« Reply #2 on: June 19, 2007, 03:24:28 PM »
If you have dandruff, do not worry about being alone with your problem. With one out of every two people in the entire world having, or having had, that same problem as yours, you are definitely not alone with it. Dandruff is a common hair problem. Embarrassing indeed, but a very, very common problem nonetheless.

What causes dandruff? Well, you see, our entire skin, from our scalps to the soles of our feet, sheds dead skin cells on a daily basis. We get a complete coating of new skin every 28 days or so, but we hardly even notice it.

Our bodies also play host to a lot of microorganisms like bacteria and fungi, feeding off on the sebaceous oils that our skin produces. Our scalp in particular is home to a kind of fungus called malassezia fungus, and its food is the oils produced by the hair follicles of our scalp. Dandruff happens when, for some reason or another, the malassezia fungus goes crazy and irritates our scalp, causing the dead skin to shed a lot faster. So, instead of shedding the dead skin cells of our scalp for a month, the shedding happens in less than two weeks, and the oil that our hair follicles produce cause these dead skin cells to clump together and become dandruff. Until now, the factors that trigger this phenomenon with the malassezia fungus are still the subject of research.

Dandruff is an embarrassing hair condition, and it can recur despite your best efforts. But with proper hair care, the recurrence of dandruff can be controlled. The best way to keep the flakes at bay is to shampoo your hair every day - picture perfect hair.

Dandruff can, of course, become stubborn, so if washing everyday with your regular shampoo does not stop the flakes from becoming haywire, the next best thing to do would be to start using anti-dandruff shampoos. Look for anti-dandruff shampoos with zinc pyrithione, selenium sulfide, salicylic acid or ketoconazole as the active ingredient. To keep your scalp from developing immunity to these shampoos, go ahead and rotate brands at least once a month.

For optimum results, you can lather your hair with the shampoo of your choice twice. The first wash will clear the scalp of the flakes and the oil buildup. The second one would let the chemicals in the shampoo get absorbed by the scalp - haute hair.

You can also try homemade remedies to wash the flakes away and to keep the dandruff from recurring. What is considered the best homemade remedy to dandruff is a vinegar wash. Mix two teaspoons of vinegar with six teaspoons of water and rub it against your scalp before you go to bed, then wrap your head with a towel. Apply the same solution to your hair once again in the morning when you wake up, then rinse it with water. You do not have to worry about the smell of vinegar in your hair, as the smell of vinegar does evaporate eventually.

Whatever you do, never, ever scratch the clumps with your fingernails. It will cause wounds on your scalp.

Dandruff is an embarrassing hair condition, but it is not unmanageable. Just take good care of your hair and the flakes will go away.
