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.

Split End Tips and Preventions

January 23, 2012 on 11:42 am | In Hair Care, Natural Beauty | No Comments

Split End Causes

Split ends are less likely to occur in well conditioned healthy hair, but any hair type can become damaged and develop split ends. The key is identifying the causes of split ends and minimizing or avoiding causing the damage where you can.

Genetics – hair that is naturally dry or brittle is very prone to split ends.
Over handling your hair – excessive touching of your hair or over brushing your locks should be avoided.
Heat styling abuse – cut down on the time spent using your hair straightener, blow-dryer, curling iron or hot hair rollers.
Hair chemical processes – hair color, perms or chemically straightening your hair can all lead to split ends.
Outside elements – too much fun in the sun, wind or water (swimming at the beach or in chlorinated pools) can be a factor.
Washing your hair too much – using harsh shampoos or roughly handing your hair when it’s wet and when you wash it can contribute to split ends.
Brushing your hair with the wrong brush – swap sharp plastic hair brush bristles for natural bristles.

Split End Treatments

The only treatment for split ends is to cut them off. Any advertisement that you see for a product that claims to repair split ends only masks the problem. Those type of products will coat your hair shaft and smooth the splits temporarily back together but they don’t repair them. The split is still there and will continue to move up your hair shaft, causing more issues. Make sure your visit your hairstylist as soon as you see any split ends to have them taken care of ASAP.

Split End Prevention
To prevent split ends from occurring, or reoccurring, you’ll need to work out what hair care habits you have that could cause split ends and change your behavior. This could mean…

Protecting your hair with heat protection products when heat styling.
Starting a regular hair care routine which involves deep conditioning weekly or monthly.
Using a hair brush that has natural bristles. Detangling your hair before getting it wet to minimize any damage caused when your hair is at its most vulnerable.
Always handling your hair delicately and as gently as possible when brushing, styling, washing and drying.
We hope these tips will help you to take care of any existing split ends and avoid further splits in the future.
