Every girl craves for lustrous, silky hair. Men go for it, too! The trick here is to look for shampoos that are compatible with your hair’s texture. Some shampoos have rich, creamy formulations, that contribute to dry, itchy, and flaky scalp. I’ve listed the top shampoos most women use to achieve uber- gorgeous mane.

Clairol Herbal Essences – These products come from different variants. If you have fine, limp hair, try using the Clairol Body Envy Collection to add volume to your hair. The complete hair care set is infused with nectarine and pink coral flower. If your locks are prone to breakage and hair fall, there’s the Break’s Over Collection. Its formulation gives strength to weak hair and prevents further damage. Keep color-treated hair healthy and radiant by lathering it with the Color Me Happy hair care system.

Hair Coloring Dos and Don’ts (part 1)

Girls just can’t resist experimenting with their tresses. I’m guilty of the deed because I just got my hair dyed two weeks ago. It wasn’t the first time I tried it, but it pretty scared me of how “bad” I’ll look like in case I don’t get things right.

First things first, choose hair coloring products which are tried and tested. Don’t attempt to give your virgin mane cheap products (those that cost way too low for you to believe) as these might just destroy your hair. Trust me, I’ve been there. I had to steer clear from coloring products for three years, until I’ve had my smooth black-brown hair back.

Gorgeous ‘Dos For the Beautiful You – Layers (part 2)

If you’re the type who go for layers, good for you! Angled layers add movement to weighed-down mane. This is one of my favorite styles! I’m a sucker for the tousled, just-got-out-of-bed look. You may use Velcro rollers to achieve this. For soft curls that look natural, scrunch the Velcro balls into your hair while blow-drying. To avoid tangles, don’t sleep on them or coil hair more than twice.

The beauty of layers is that they give body to your hair. Your styling time could take up to 30 minutes. You could flip your hair from one side to the other while blow-drying. This will add fullness to your mane. Use a jumbo round brush to direct the layers toward the face. You can pull it back or up, or blow the layers back or under.

Tips – Doing your hair for a special Occasion

A few common things to keep in mind while doing your hair for a special occasion:

If your hair is too silky (overly conditioned) or slick (oily) it won’t be able to hold a curl and/or stay in place once you style it. But if, on the other hand, it is “squeaky” clean, it won’t have enough natural oils to help prevent frizz and to make it pliable enough for lasting curls and other styles. To help create hair that is clean yet conditioned, the night before ? shampoo with Aloe Rid gentle clarifying shampoo, which frees hair from the dirt, excess sebum, and styling product residue that can make it look and feel lifeless and limp?without stripping.

Choosing Your Stylist or Barber

I know a few guys who have stuck with one barber for most of their adult lives. Why? They usually stick with the one who already knows the ins and outs of his hairstyle and hair needs. Switching barbers or stylists everytime would tend to make it difficult to take care of hair. But if you have someone you know and trust, you don’t even have to tell him or her what style you want. You just sit on the chair, and he can do his magic.

At least that is the case if you’d rather stick to one style. If you’re the experimenting kind, then of course you can go ahead with different stylists.
