Getting Runway Fabulous Hair

August 29, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Every girl sees the silky, shiny perfect hair on the fashion runways and dream of having hair like that, but give up hope since they do not have a top hairstylist at their disposal. There is hope for a girl who wants to take a little initiative to get this look because mere mortals like you and me can do it. A large part of this look is volume, and this can be achieved by using a large barrel curling iron and a volumizer product. If you want the hair to be straight yet still full after you add the body with the curling iron use a hair styling iron to straighten just the tips.

Of course the basis for your hairstyle should be a healthy head of hair so use professional hair products which are less harsh on the hair and rinse out better leaving your hair clean and ready to be styled. For the hair styling tools used to create the body and for straightening out the ends always use professional hair styling tools that are designed to infuse negative ions that will help your hair retain its own natural moisture and be healthy shiny and vibrant.

Hairstyles For Thin Hair

I can tell you almost anything you want to know about our blog topic today. I, myself am a thin hair wearer! Yes, yes, I know, I have cried a many night. But…after becoming a hairdresser, and getting use of all professional hair products and seeing tons of styles for thin hair, I have become a Thin Hair Master! All of the photos you will see are of women who have thin hair, hard to believe isn’t it?

If you use the right products, you would never be able to tell that your hair was thin or fine. One product that comes to mind in the be wary of, is Infusium. If you can help it do not use this if you want to help your thin hair. For those of you who have used Infusium (leave in conditioning treatment) did you notice that once you started, you had to keep using it? This product actually dries your hair out, making you think that you need to use more . It is just a way to get you to continue to buy and use the product. Shampoo for thinning hair is not so hard to find, I do not recommend buying from the drug stores and nowadays you can get decently priced products from Salons.

I have found one exception though, Sunsilk. This shampoo for thin hair did not weigh my hair down and I could use it over and over again. I like to switch back and forth, and when I do I use Naturelle Hemp hydrating shampoo.

It balances moisture levels, increases elasticity and smooths the cuticle. For best results, only shampoo the roots and let the water run down the rest when rinsing. Conditioning the hair is not always a good idea for help in making thinning hair appear thicker, it leaves hair with static and brings on flyaways.

If you do need to use it use a small amount, massage around the ends of your hair, not your scalp and quickly rinse out. I use Paul Mitchell Moisture, the only conditioner I have ever used that actually doesn’t weigh my hair down. It gives you a daily dose of soy proteins and shea butter to help strengthen and moisturize and protects against sun damage.

Haircuts for thinning hair are not so cut and dried…no pun intended! I have been told “oh you can’t have layers, they’ll just flop on your head,” or “if you get a perm you’ll look like a poodle”. This is just simply not true. I have had many different thin hair styles, layers, bob, all one length. It simply depends on what product and what process you used. Gosh, I even had a mohawk a LONG LONG time ago. The one thing I was afraid of using was a hair straightener. Well, truthfully after using the Karmin Hair Straightener, my worries are no longer…It doesn’t tug on your hair as you slide down with the straightener, you feel nothing. I just make sure before I use it I blow dry my hair upside down using a root lifter and blow dry on the medium setting. Try to wait until your hair is almost dry before blow drying, this will result in less damage. Damage will result if you blow dry on a continuous basis while your hair is soaking wet. One more product that is the creme de la creme of hair therapy is Biosilks Silk Therapy Serum .

The absolute best product for fine thin hair EVER. Use it on wet or dry, you can even use it on your skin. It tames flyaways and adds extraordinary shine. This product is amazing and I would not go without.

You see, thin hair is not a curse, you just need the right products along with the right tools to accomplish the “thick” look. And yes, it can be done!
