BEAUTY TIPS

WAYS TO KEEP YOUR HAIR HEALTHY

CHOOSING COLOR TREATMENT

WHAT HAIRSTYLE SUITS ME?

Having healthy, beautiful hair is within reach if you develop the right hair care habits and protect your hair from damage. When you handle your hair gently, nourish it with natural conditioners and avoid using heat styling tools, you give your hair the chance to look and feel healthier than ever. Being healthy from the inside out by eating vitamin-rich foods will also have an effect on the appearance of your hair.

  • Do you wash your hair every single day? This can really dry it out, since you're washing away the oils your scalp produces to keep your hair shiny and healthy. Washing every day can also lead to oily hair, since stripping your hair of its oils causes your oil glands to go into overdrive. Try this routine instead:

    • Wash your hair just three or four times a week. Giving your hair a break in between washings will restore its balance. It might be a little oily for the first week or so, but your hair will soon look more healthy and vibrant than ever.

    • Wash your hair with cold water. Washing with hot water is hard on your hair and can lead to split ends and frizz. Washing with cold water helps your hair shaft close, resulting in shiny, bouncy hair.

 

  • Handle your hair gently. Think of your hair like your best silk dress. After hand washing it, would you ball it up and wring it out? No, that would destroy its shape and fibers. Your hair is similarly fragile and needs to be treated with care to stay healthy.

    • After washing your hair, gently pat it dry with a towel instead of wringing it out. Let it finish air drying.

    • Use a comb instead of a brush. Forcing a brush through tangled hair can cause it to rip and break. Use a wide-toothed comb to gently work through the tangles.

 

  • Use heat styling devices sparingly. Put away your hair dryer, straightener, curling iron, and hot rollers unless you have a special occasion at hand. Applying heat to your hair can damage it, so it's best to let your hair air dry instead.

    • If you want to use the blow dryer sometimes, use it on a cool setting.

    • When you do use heat styling devices, be sure to put a protective serum in your hair beforehand.

Choosing the right hair color isn’t as easy as simply picking out a color you like. There are a lot of factors that you should consider before picking a color for your hair, like your skin tone, natural hair color, and eye color. Keep reading to make sure you are choosing the right hair color for you.

 

  • Think about how drastic you would like your color change to be.

 

  • Collect physical and digital pictures of hair color looks that you like.

 

  • Decide if you want to get a haircut as well.

 

  • Think about how often you are willing to get touch-ups

  • Wash your hair less often. Despite it sounding gross, it's actually better to wash your hair every other day rather than every day. Your heads natural oils help condition your hair, keeping it healthier, while also keeping your color in longer. When looking to skip a day of washing, wear a shower cap to keep your hair from getting wet while showering.

 

  • Choose the right products. Use shampoos that is specifically for colored hair. You can also opt for a sulfate free shampoo, which is much better for your hair, as it won't strip away it's natural oils.

  •  

  • Use less heat on your hair. Your colored hair is much more susceptible to damage. Damaged hair doesn't look that great and you may not be able to redye it as often. 

 

  • Stay out of the sun. The sun does fade colored hair, so try to avoid those UV rays! 

If there’s one thing I’ve learn in this beauty game, it’s that hair makes a huge difference. A new haircut can really transform your look and make you feel great.

 

First things first – it all boils down to your face shape. Once you have figured out what your face shape is, it is so much easier to find out what cuts and styles can flatter, making your search much less traumatic.

Once you’ve found your face shape, here are some guidelines for hairstyles:

  • Round face: Long, layered straight to slightly wavy hair looks stunning on you! Side swept and long bangs will also suit you well. Avoid styles that will bring more width to your face, such as blunt bangs, bobs and big curls. They might make your face look rounder. The trick here is to elongate.

  • Long face: The key here is to widen your face, so focus on getting volume at the side (near your cheeks). Hairstyles such as bobs, wavy and curly hair will add width to your face; and short to shoulder length cuts look great on you! Bangs work very well on long faces, especially blunt and side bangs. Avoid styles that “lengthen” the face, such as straight, long cuts, and avoid too long hair length, which can drag your face down .

  • Square face: Softer hairstyles will work best with you to soften your sharp features, wispy bangs, soft romantic curls will look really pretty. Hairstyle with big, soft volume look great too. Avoid chin length cuts that may emphasis your strong jawline.

  • Oval Face: Lucky you, oval face shapes look great in anything! Experiment and see what you like best.

  • Heart & Triangle face: Long and wavy hairstyles will look great on you. Keep your hair length to the longer side; as shorter cuts and styles may emphasise your smaller jaw area. Soft, side swept bangs looks great and will soften the jaw area as well to give your face some balance.

Lastly tip would be to try out the hairstyle…Try it out  in any of the virtual software you can get your hand on over the web. Does it look good overall? Was your initial response a positive one? If so, go for it. And if you are still not sure; that’s where the “universal cut” comes in.That the ‘universal’ cut is shoulder-length hair with slight layers and a long side swept fringe.This cut flatters every face shape, hair type and is suitable at any age. It makes sense, too – the cut is simple, timeless and sophisticated; I don’t see why anyone wouldn’t suit it.
