Basics for Healthy Hair

Haircut Styles presents Basics for Healthy Hair

Healthy hair is something that works from the inside out. That means, if you want to have great locks, you have to start with good nutrition. Ample protein, fresh produce, and water are the keys to getting great looking hair. Vitamin E is also great for a healthy shine. So, try to add some whole grains or nuts into your diet as well. Once you’ve built a foundation of hair-healthy food, caring for your strands is the next step in keeping them healthy.
Healthy Hair

Washing your hair regularly is important, but over-washing can ruin a healthy head of hair. For most people, washing every two to three days is plenty. Also, choosing the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair is important. This all depends on the type of hair you have, so you will need to get familiar with hot moist, thick, and wavy your locks are. Need help deciding what’s best? Consult a stylist for a second opinion. The same is true when styling hair. You need to choose the right products for your locks. Finally, over doing it with heating appliances, like a blow drier, can fry strands. This is one of the most common ways women ruin their hair. So, use a heat protecting product and keep your appliances on the lowest setting possible. If you follow these tips, you are sure to have healthy hair for years to come.

Hair Care Tools

Haircut Styles presents Hair Care Tools

Using the right hair care tools can enhance the hairstyles that you wear and also protect the hair. Most of the tools are found at local drug stores, while the professional tools are easily available at specialized shops that sell hair care products used by the professional hairstylists at the salons.
There are three different types of brushes that are used for styling the hair. These are the round brush, the paddle brush and the vent brush. Usually the round brush is used for flipping the hair up or making it round at the top at the time of blow drying the hair. The paddle brush is used for longer locks and for curling hair.
A wide tooth comb is sued for detangling the hair especially when it’s wet. Curly hair gets tangled extremely fast and a wide tooth comb can easily loosen the locks without causing any strains. Hair accessories such as hair clips, barrettes, hair pins and rubber bands are used for creating the looks.

Spray bottles are used for wetting the hair during a hair cut. A blow dryer is used for drying and styling the hair in many ways. Curling irons are used for curling the hair in the desired way. Plastic curling irons shouldn’t be used since they might overheat.

Hair Restoration Tips

Haircut Styles presents Hair Restoration Tips

Losing one’s hair, whether from damage or genetics, can be highly discouraging. Bald spots look good on no one, but solving the problem can seem impossible. However, there is no reason to lose hope completely. There are ways to restore hair. First, though, you need to prevent any future hair loss from happening. This means you’ll have to change the way you care for your hair. Try to avoid any damaging chemicals, like hair dyes or relaxers, and keep heating devices, like blow dryers, to a minimum.
Hair Restoration Tips

Also, use a sun protecting cream or spray on your locks to keep them safe from UV damage. Improving your diet can also help stop hair growth. In fact, poor nutrition can even be the major cause of hair loss in some people. Once you’ve started protecting your hair from future harm, you can star trying to re-grow hair. There are some all-natural remedies that you can try, but these are rarely effective.
Hair Restoration Tips

Over the counter remedies, like Rogaine, are a more proven option to prevent future hair loss and even re-grow hair. However, these products will not work for everyone. Finally, if all else fails, surgery is a viable option. Hair transplants and other procedures can help restore a full head of hair and bring back your beauty and confidence.

Hair Care for Damaged Hair

Haircut Styles presents Hair Care for Damaged Hair

Having damaged hair can put you in a rough situation. Damage usually results from over using hair dyes, heating tools, and chemical products. It can make your locks look dull, dry, and frizzy. Thankfully, though, such damage is not permanent. If you stop harming
your hair, it will eventually grow out and you will have healthy locks once again. In the mean time, though, there are many products that can help improve the look of hair that has been damaged.
Damaged Hair Prevention

First, you should avoid washing the hair every day. Over-washing can make damage worse and strips your hair of naturally restorative oils. You can probably go as long as three days without washing and still have healthy hair. When you do wash, make sure you use a moisturizing or restorative conditioner. These can help reduce dryness, the most common symptom of damaged hair. Use a towel to gently dry your hair, and do not rub! You should also avoid using hot styling tools like a blow dryer or curling iron. These will only increase problems. To style your hair, consider using a silicon-based serum. If possible, add a moisturizing product with SPF protection. UV rays can damage your hair further. Follow these tips and you will be able to add shine and life to your damaged ‘do.

Short or Long Hair?

Haircut Styles presents Short or Long Hair?

Are you considering cutting your hair short? Before you take the plunge, it’s important to know whether short or long hair is right for you. The first thing you need to consider is how attached you are to your long locks. If your emotional bond to your hair is a strong one, you may not be happy when it gets cut off. However, if you decide you can handle the change, the next thing to look at is your face structure.

This is actually the most important consideration when choosing a hair length. The shape of your face plays a big part in what length hair suits you best. People who have a square shaped face tend to find that short cuts do not flatter them. Also, people with round faces benefit from having extra height at the crown. They can still go short, but should be wary of cuts that are flat. Finally, those with longer faces actually look better with shorter hair, but their face can look awkward if the cut is overly cropped. So, once you’ve checked out your face shape, the last thing to think about is your lifestyle. Do you have enough time to take care of long hair each day? Are you willing to get your short cut trimmed frequently? These are questions to think about as they will affect how well you maintain your look.

Layered Hairstyles

Haircut Styles present Layered Hairstyles

The term layered hairstyles is often confused by hairstylists themselves. Layering as a term means that there are variable lengths of hair throughout the haircut of a person. This means that some strands can be cut short, while others can be cut medium length yet others can be very long. Layering is most often done to enhance the features and give a distinctive edge to a hairstyle. It creates an image of volume for many people where actually the hair might be quite thin and limp.

Dealing with Gray Hair

Haircut Styles presents Dealing with Gray Hair

It can be quite bothersome for people when they discover that they have gray or white hair. In fact it can be quite damning for people that are there in their twenties to discover that they have gray or white hair. It’s not really such a big deal when they are just a few, but when they become quite visible, most people would like to cover up their grey hair.
Gray Hair

The first option is to color the hair. But grey hair doesn’t hold color as well as the original hair color. In fact the color may fade or wash away after shampooing the hair for quite a few times. If the coloring isn’t done properly, the color may not even hold on the hair. To avoid these situations, many of hair stylists also add hydrogen peroxide to the hair coloring solution to ensure that the hold holds on.
Another option is to highlight the hair. Highlighting the hair helps to blend the original hair color with the grey hair. But the option of highlighting works only on people that have blond to medium brown hair. If a person has naturally dark brown or dark black hair, then this option would hardly work.

Hair Conditioning Tips

Haircut Styles presents Hair Conditioning Tips

Hair conditioning should be done according the texture of hair. While dry and frizzy hair requires more conditioning, straight and oily hair would hardly require any conditioning. Healthy hair is dependent on the diet, health, climatic conditions and genetic makeup of a person. For thousands of years, natural oils such as olive oil, jojoba oil, tea tree oil and coconut oil have been used to oil and condition hair.
Hair Conditioning

Today there are many conditioners apart from the natural oils that are available in the market, that can be used to nourish and condition the hair. There are several types of hair conditioners available in the market such as pack conditioners, hold conditioners and leave in conditioners. They serve various purposes. Pack conditioners are heavy and thick and are able to glue the hair structure together.
Hair Conditioning

Hold conditioners are used to hold the hair in the desired look and hairstyle. They are usually applied to the hair for along time. Leave in conditioners are thinner and contain different surfactants make the hair shinier. They are quite similar to hair gels. Hair conditioners are used for replacing the stripped out sebum from the hair. When hair conditioners are applied, one should wear a hat in the sun for the conditioner to work effectively.

Female Hair Loss Tips

Haircut Styles presents Female Hair Loss Tips

Hair Loss definitely happens to women too. But it can be quite a bit of a shock to women when it happens. There are some methods that can be used to arrest the hair loss. These are special protein based shampoos. These products have been formulated in such a way that they help to make the hair fuller and thicker. This product would remove the sebum that gets accumulated in the hair. This also makes the hair look limp and thin.
Female Hair Loss

The protein based shampoos leave micro infusion of hair thickening proteins even after the final wash and rinse of hair is over. As women use it more and more, their hair would also grow thicker. This in itself will arrest the hair loss for women. The pattern for re growth of hair would differ from person to person. If various hair treatments are not working, its time to see a doctor. They can recommend the best strategy for you.
Genetics also plays a great role for thinning of hair. Hormone-related condition called alopecia androgenetica is genetically inherited by women that can also cause hair thinning and baldness. Women also experience thinning and falling of hair during menopause. Before menopause, women produce high rates of estrogen. But after menopause, the body stops producing estrogen. In fact the testosterone in the body creates the bald spots.
