Getting That Tousled Long Hair Look

August 28, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

One of the latest fashion trends for hair involves laid back wavy hair very similar to the classic beach look that comes natural to some lucky women. This look can be easily attended by most anyone though with a simple hair curling iron. It is best to use quality hair curling irons such as a ionic or ceramic based models which are so much better for your hair than the cheaply made drugstore models which have your hair against bare metal to curl the strands.

It is tempting to try and curl all of your hair to get this look and then hope you can mess it up enough to make it look natural. This is not the best way to get these carefree curls though. Use your curling iron to curl only random pieces of hair about two inches up from the bottom of the hair and stopping about eye level. These randomly created curls on only part of your head will give not only body but also the messy casual appearance that so many women want to achieve. This is one easy to get hairstyle that you will love to use your curling iron to create not only for work but also for a great night out.

Hair Build-Up – How to Remove Product Build Up From Hair

May 12, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

How do you really know if you are using the right styling product. I know sometimes it can be hard to look at your own hair but here is one note that should be taken seriously…When you see a ton of flakes, piling up in your hair, this is usually from bad hair products not getting washed out properly, too much hairspray or simply can be a case of bad dandruff.

Now I know this photo isn’t pretty but you need to see what other people see when you are standing or sitting below their eye level. Now, from my research these are some treatment shampoos that should help if indeed you have dandruff. First though, what I know about Head and Shoulders is this, it (don’t know if it still is) used to be so strong that if you put rollers in your hair then poured Head and Shoulders all over your head, rinsed the shampoo out, removed the rollers, your hair would keep the curl. If this product is strong enough to perm your hair, then yes, I guess it will get rid of dandruff, but in the process you would have BADLY damaged hair. So please try something else!

Here is an all natural treatment that you can do yourself.

This recipe is from “Dandruff Cure Recipes”

Boil some water and soak rosemary leaves in it. Let it stand for one night. Strain and add vinegar to it. After shampooing, wash your hair with this preparation. It treats the hair very fast. Make sure you eat lots of greens and take vitamin E and B complex supplements. Biotin in your diet is very important and is considered an important anti-dandruff compound. Eat foods rich in biotin: soybeans, oats, barley, corn, garlic, avocado,ginseng.

Now onto product residue. KMS Head Remedy, a purifying shampoo that gently removes oil, chlorine and product build up. Rosemary and fennel help soothe itching and provide anti-bacterial benefits to the scalp to leave your hair and scalp clean and healthy. KMS Head Remedy

Senscience Purifying Shampoo.

It cleanses away residue and styling build up without stripping hair. Novel chelating agents remove excess minerals such as chlorine, iron, magnesium and copper leaving hair thoroughly cleansed. Bamboo remineralizes, restructures and tones.

Something simple that probably every person has in their home is baking soda. Mix about a tablespoon in with your shampoo and this will also strip your hair of chemicals. These products must only be used periodically, the baking soda method should be used maybe 2 to 3 times in a row, every 2 to 3 months. Same goes with the shampoos, too much use and your hair will start to dry out. Till next time, Good Luck,
