Why Do We Cut Our Hair?

February 5, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Some say that getting haircuts makes them feel refreshed. The feeling of a new haircut can give your look a little zip and make everything seem crisp since it’s a new cut. There are also theories stating that if you trim your ends every six to eight weeks it can help your hair to grow faster. Some say this theory can’t be true, however, because it may seem hard to make hair grow if it’s always getting cut. There are many reasons why people cut their hair but there are also people out there who think haircuts are overrated. Why would you want to cut your hair when you can keep it growing to be luscious and long.

One of the reasons to cut hair regularly is because the ends get messy and tend to break easily if they aren’t treated. The suggested length to wait between cuts is six to eight weeks because the hair follicle needs a little time to grow back out before it can be reshaped. If you have extremely dry and damaged hair, you need may need to make your regular cut every four to six weeks so the hair can be repaired more often and maintain some health. As long as you bring out those hair shears more than twice a year, you can help your hair keep its body.

We, as Americans, are a much cleaner group of people than those in some foreign countries. Not to say there is anything wrong with other cultures and their traditions but in our specific society, we tend to care of our bodies more often and in heavier ways. For example, the average American will cleanse his or her hair and body once each day whereas it is more traditional in places like Rome to shower every three or four days. The fact that we are slightly higher on the hygiene scale reminds us that we tend to have cleaner cut hair too. Most Americans say that a good haircut should come every once in a while just to feel cleaner about themselves.

As odd as it may seem, some people even get a haircut just to gossip! That’s right, some ladies need a little time away from their husbands or children so they get a quick trim at the salon just to be around other women who talk about similar things! This may even be one of the more popular reasons for women to get a haircut. On the other hand, some men could care a less about their hair being cut and what type of shears are being used on them, etc. They get haircuts because their wives force them to after so long. The typical things they’ll hear from their wives include, “You look like a girl!” or “I can’t believe how long you’re letting your hair grow…I’m calling my hair lady!”

There are some reasons for getting a regular cut that make more sense than others. Who would think a place like a beauty salon would be a go-to place to get your mind off of things. For some women, it’s the perfect place. Then there are reasons like giving the hair cuticle a fresh start every once in a while. This is smart if you want to keep hair growing at its best. If you don’t get a regular trim with a quality pair of shears, the growth rate gets trapped by split ends and makes it come to an abrupt halt after so long.

Hair Straightening Made Less Harsh

January 25, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Women all over the country have heard that straightening their hair can be the worst thing for it. Breakage in the ends and frizz from root to tip could be a couple of the negative effects of straightening your hair daily. Some see these as reasons to quit straightening their hair and feel that if they do straighten, their hair will break easily and become incredibly damaged. Just because some of these things can happen to your hair, it doesn’t mean that you should never straighten it. There are few easy solutions to breakage in the hair follicle.

One way to at least prevent damage is to use your heat protectant spray and not use the heat tool as much. This may be one of the easiest ways to solve the problem but it may not completely resolve the issue. This may be the best option for those women who are attached to their long locks of beauty. It’s true that some women refuse to cut their hair because of its length. They become so attached to having their hair hang so long that they would never even consider cutting the ends off. Using plenty of thermal care and watching the heat exposure is the best way for these kind of women to lessen the harsh effects of straightening.

For those who may not be so attached to their hair, they may consider bringing out the shears. It’s a good way to update your look as well as remove any bad ends that are causing your hair to look dead and dull. It is amazing to see how a woman with long hair can get a shorter look and can also make herself look so sophisticated. Shorter bobs tend to look more professional and put together than hair that hangs down with scary ends. That is why chopping it all off may be a great idea if your hair is becoming a pain to straighten in the mornings.

You don’t necessarily need to go from butt-length hair to chin-length hair. As long as you give your ends a fresh look so you can start clean with the straightening process. If your hair is shorter, there won’t be as many tangles because there won’t be as much hair to get jumbled together into knots. This makes you even save a little time with styling each day! As long as you’re not completely obsessed with having long hair, cutting it to a shorter style would be a great idea to avoid tangles and damage from heat.

You may have never thought that you would see the words “hair straightener” and “hair scissors” in the same sentence. However, it’s true: you can eliminate the extreme damage of a hair straightener by using hair scissors. Although you maybe shouldn’t trust yourself to cut the hair off without the help of a hairstylist. But it is a good idea to give your ends a fresh look while repairing damage at the same time!

For women with very thin hair sometimes getting curls into your hair is hard enough but then getting them to stay is then next to impossible. There is a solution out there that will help those curls stay in place a little longer without having to put so much hairspray on your head that the hair is crunchy and hard. Tourmaline curling irons can actually help you retain those beautiful curls longer than a regular curling iron can on its own. The negative ions produced by the tourmaline in combination with the ceramic makes these the best curling irons for getting that curl to stay since the curl will take deeper into the hair follicle and not just a little on the outside.
