We all see this great looking women on runways and on TV with beautiful straight hair and yet it seems to me that so many of use normal women just cannot get this look no matter how hard we seem to try. For many their hair just seems to have a mind of their own and it just seems to want to be frizzy and out of control. Yet there are stories all the time about how a professional hair straightener can get rid of that frizz and curl to give you that long sleek gorgeous hair that you want. But then there are the stories that hair straightening irons do not work well and that the celebs we see just have great looking hair because they have stylists to take care of them.

Well regular women can get gorgeous straight hair by using a professional hair straightener and there are even groups out there willing to talk about which irons they use and how they get those great results. There are many flat iron users on facebook that share all kinds of information and even before and after photos of themselves to help other women who want to get this really hot look.

Are hair extensions good for my hair?

hair-extensions-look-of-love.jpgWe all have different types of hair, and in some instances I am sure that some methods are going to do more damage than good. Always find out if the stylist doing your hair is a good one. Word of mouth, before and after photos, and simply just setting aside an hour or two to watch a stylist at work can help ease your mind. You must not jump into this without research. A well trained hairstylist can apply hair extensions correctly so it is painless and does not damage your hair in about  4 to 7 hours. The main reason for getting hair extensions is to add length to your hairstyle, although they can be used to thicken or add highlights. The clip in hair extensions you can do yourself and are the cheapest. Here are some of the different looks you can achieve:

If Jessica Simpson can put them in herself, I am sure you could too, plus you can’t go wrong with these prices. Till next time, Good Luck,

How to reduce damage from Hair Straighteners

June 12, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Yes, there is such a thing as using heating products too much, that is if your not using anything to protect your hair before you start styling. Do you have a matted type ball at the back of your head and the middle doesn’t seem to be as long as the sides? This is because of too much heat products and other misc. things, ie: elastic bands too tight, not the right pillow case etc. If you are going to be using your hair straightener everyday you need to start protecting your hair in the process, if you don’t you will not be able to even straighten that matted hair on the back of your head, it will always have a certain frizz look to it.

Make sure that you take a break every once in a while where you don’t blow dry or use any kind of heating products. Try doing this once or twice a week. Use a good spray in conditioner, avoiding anything that has alcohol in it (this dries out your hair) spray each section as you are straightening it. Use a good conditioning pack at least once every two weeks (the kind you keep in and wash out after approx. 15 min.) Comb deep conditioner through hair and rinse out after time noted above.

Do not brush your hair too harshly, using a natural bristled brush, or a comb, just brush from the bottom up. Use a lower heat setting on your hair straightener once in awhile. As you can see from the photos below after time heating products and just not caring about your hair does sufficient damage. So to ensure the best healthiest hair take care of yourself, eat right, do conditioning treatments and treat your hair like it’s your best friend.
