Dry Hair Top Picks 2012

March 5, 2012 on 10:01 am | In Beauty Tips, Hair Care | No Comments

Dye, pollution, sun exposure and fatigue really take their toll on your hair, right? Your hair isn’t standing up very well to everything you’re throwing at it, and it’s looking more and more dry and matted. Even shampoo for damaged hair doesn’t seem to be doing much, and you’re thinking the only way to sort it out is to get a new ‘do. Right? Wrong!

Don’t be so quick to go for the chop : a bit of DIY salon care is all you need, using the right products for your hair, and regularly.

Your hair might be dry because it’s naturally wavy or curly (this stops amino acids from working on the whole length of your hair) or because you’ve used de-colourant or detergent shampoo that has destroyed your amino acids.

What you need
What dry hair needs most is an even ‘coverage’ of amino acids to give it back its softness and shine. The most important thing is to use a specially-formulated nourishing shampoo and then a good de-tangling conditioner or hydrating balm after each wash. Rinse your hair in cold water to give your follicles a bit of a kick and make your hair shinier.

You need to keep your hair deeply nourished by using a mask or conditioning treatment twice a week. The best for your hair is a non-greasy conditioner that you apply bit by bit, massaging thoroughly over the whole of your head and then covering with a hot towel and cling film or aluminium foil. Leave for at least 40 minutes, if not all night. Rinse, shampoo and condition, and avoid blow-drying unless you have to.

Quick and Refreshing Fixes for Your Hair

January 31, 2012 on 1:23 pm | In Beauty Tips, Hair Care | No Comments

Once in a while you will have a perfect day as far as your hair is concerned. Your hair looked great all through that day and you have to get a shower in the evening. You know for certain that your hair will not look any thing like before once you have your shower. Still you get that shower, even after having a shower the previous evening or the same day morning.


You need not shampoo your hair repeatedly to get great results. There is nothing wrong in not shampooing once in a while. As you wash your hair more and apply hair products, the volume of stuff getting on to your silky flocks increases drastically.

Skip your regular hair washing by covering your hair in a towel or piling your hair on to a shower cap before you take your shower. In order to keep your hair not smelly or not looking or feeling bad when you skip this shampooing, you can follow these steps and you will have gorgeous hair.

Freshen Up

You can find a perfume for your hair the same way you have a perfume and body spray. Many good brands have great fragrances for your silky hair. Herbal Essences Style Refreshing Mist from Clairol is a good example. This spray comes in a discrete spray bottle and is sure to make you feel good about your hair with its tantalizing floral perfumes.

You may wash your hair every time you take a shower. You can use shampoo and conditioner as well. Skip the blow drying part, especially during the summer months. Put your hair up by twisting and set it in place with the help of some bobby pins or hair pins. You may opt for a classic braid or try some sexy style with help of claw clips.

De-Frizz and Smooth Out

When you are running late for a party or a date, after a long day at work, and you may find yourself without enough time to have a shower and dress up. In this situation, you can use the help of styling products or some anti-frizz gel to keep your hair in place.

If going to a party or date without taking a shower is out of the question, then you can go for a really fast shower and get going. Use a leave in conditioner or an anti-frizz hair gel on to your hair and get your hair dried as per the instructions of the product. In case you have enough time to let your hair dry the natural way, do it that way.


Even if you do not have enough time to take regular care of your hair and make up, you could still take an occasional glance at yourself and see if the hair is behaving as you were expecting it to be or if your make up is leaking. Now do not do this in the middle of the party by having a mirror in hand or during the date. Avoid looking at your reflection on any tinted cars near by.

You can always take a break to the ladies room and take a look and do some emergency patch works on your make up or hair do with help of water or any styling/make up products available on you.
