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:

1. SET THE STAGE
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.

Color Treated Hair

A lot of women enjoy coloring their hair to change their looks. This is all fine as long as it is well taken care of especially during the summer time. The heat of the sun can easily leave the hair dry and damaged, to avoid that, here are some hair care tips for women or men who have color treated hair.

  • Do not shampoo your hair everyday. Limit to washing it every 3 days if possible. This is because if you wash the hair often, the color will come out.
  • Whenever you are out in the sun, try to cover your hair with cool accessories like hats or scarves. If you are not into that, always apply a leave-on conditioner to protect it from the scorching heat.
  • If you can avoid it, do not use heating elements like straightening iron, blow dry or curling irons. This will just damage your hair.
