Is it a coincidence that just when we need to look our best our locks look their worst? Of course, we could blame decades of chemical treatments, as well as daily heat styling and attempts to turn our locks into what they’re not. Instead of a healthy, glossy and enviable mop, we look in the mirror and find thin, stringy, frizzy, damaged, dry, dull, dyed and fried strands that suck the life out of our fabulous 50-plus faces. Even celebs are not immune to BHD syndrome. Here are 4 new tricks to turn tresses in distress into coiffures of confidence.
A Ruse With Unexpected Color
While not for every woman, temporary pastel blues, lavenders and pinks are adding spice to damaged hair. Most of us won’t go so far as Jenny McCarthy’s (top center) blue bob or Lisa Lampanelli’s (right) blue and gray crop, but adding supersubtle candy-color tips like Cindi Lauper’s (bottom center) locks and colorful clip-in extensions like Vivica A. Fox’s (left) top-knot mix add edgy glam fast. For a head-turning one-day or night statement and solution, try a spray-on wash out-with-shampoo temporary color like L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Hair Color Spray ($7, target.com) in blue, pink and lavender, or try Splat Instant Color Hair Chalk ($6, target.com) and just do the ends or one big streak.
“Equip” A Bang
If you already have a fringe the solution is simple (and if not, add them ASAP). Pull the rest up in a ponytail or topknot and let those feathery, brow-grazing face framers do the flattery work, like (from left) Halle Berry, Molly Ringwald, and Linda Evans. Since hair grows about a half inch a month, bangs fatten up first and are always are the healthiest part of your hair. Plus, they give the illusion of more hair and cover a receding hairline. Head for a salon snip today.
Long damaged hair — especially stringy or broken dry hair — responds to a chop. Book a salon appointment for that day and bring plenty of photos on your mobile to make sure you and your stylist are communicating exactly how far to go. While this is an extreme change, if not now … when? You will be eliminating hair beyond repair and starting fresh. Consider your color, too. Shorter locks could be a good time to start going grayish like (from left) Sharon Stone or taking the drama up a notch for a spiky effect like Gladys Knight or Joan Jett.
Make Your Hair Shiny
Shiny hair looks healthy. Dry, dull hair requires a once- or twice-weekly deep-conditioning mask to restore hydration. It also deserves the fastest blow-dry to prevent scorching. Upgrade to a dryer that uses tourmaline and ionic technology to shorten drying time with a post-dry cool-shot button for a vibrant glossy look, like (from left) Michelle Yeoh, Lela Rochon, and Bo Derek. A few tone-on-tone discreet highlights also amp up sparkle for any color hair (even gray or white) and keep dark hair colors from looking harsh.
5 Best Hairstyle For You With Long Faces
The best hairstyle is always whatever it is that makes you confident the most. But if you are stuck in a style rut and looking for a style or haircut that will bring out your angle then here it is. The list below is the short version of the best hairstyle for people with long faces.
Thick, Curtain Bangs
A long face has the ability to pull off a blunt or rounded bangs. These types of bangs usually swallow other face shapes. If you do want this style, ask your hairstylist for bangs that fall right below your brows to balance out your features.
Don’t be afraid to go short and bold. Choose pixie cut that is textured to show off your best angle. This type of cut will also add some movement to your hair while still framing your face.
Face Framing Layers
A ponytail is never a bad idea. But, instead of pulling your hair back and fully off your face, try a textured ponytail with some loose hair. This soft updo will give you a little balance.
To add definition to your face, try to combine some fluttering of layers with long cheekbone, dusting bangs. This way, you can still have the hairstyle you want without throwing you face off the balance.
Swooping Side Bangs
If sleek is more of your style, then this bang is fit for you. This angled look naturally draw attention to your eyes and lips. This style also helps to break up the length of your face.
Intriguing Heatless Curl Tutorials
Most of you might know that daily styling, especially with heat, could take a toll on your hair. Those fierce curls might look amazing on Instagram, but in real life, it could deeply fried your hair. Yes, anti-heat protection and conditioning might hep your hair. But seriously though, there are ways to make those curls without even making your hair fried like crazy. That’s why we search for tricks to curl our hair without those heat tools.
These simple bantu knots have helped naturalista forever. This method can be used in dry or wet hair. For wet hair, start by washing and conditioning your hair as usual. Then apply the leave in conditioner or hydrating oil and detangle with wide tooth comb. Afterward, working with one four-inch section of hair at a time, smooth a styling gel through the section. Then, twisting and coiling it around itself to form a bantu knot. Let it dry for 24 hours. The same steps also goes for dry hair, minus the washing and conditioning of course.
On damp or dry hair, apply a leave-in conditioner first. Then, split your hair in half and create two French braids on each side. Tying them off before going to sleep. In the morning, take out your braids and blast your roots with a bit of dry shampoo. To minimize frizz, lightly rub hair oil through the ruff section.
Similar to foam rollers, curl formers help to create uniform curl texture without the discomfort of the traditional curlers. Using the same technique as you would when curling your hair, wrap three-inch sections of hair around the roller, securing the ends with the attached fabric strip. Allow the hair to dry completely before removing the rollers. If your hair is a bit rully from sleeping on them, you can do some touch up with curling wand for a bit. We would still call them heatless. Haha.
Top 4 Hair Care Tips For Pregnant Ladies
As you prepare to nurture the little one growing inside you, your body goes through various changes. Most of these changes experienced during this period are due to the hormonal changes taking place within. These extra hormones in your body may create a change in your regular hair cycles. Your hair may look thicker and have more bounce than it did. Or your hair may grow overly frizzy, dry, or even curly. Some women may experience a large amount of hair fall.
In most cases, with proper care and a good diet, hair is restored to its natural condition within 6 months of delivery. Taking care of your health during these special nine months is crucial to the health of your hair and skin and your overall well being.
Shampoo and Conditioning
Make sure you use a shampoo at least once to twice a week. Therefore, use a mild shampoo, or better still, use a shampoo that is herbal. Apply a conditioner every time you wash your hair. Pay special attention to the tips of the hair to avoid dry or split ends. Hence, as you progress in your pregnancy, washing your hair becomes more and more difficult. Ask your partner to help you with this.
A great way to take care of your hair during pregnancy and to relax at the same time is by indulging in a good hair massage. Hence, oil your hair at least three to four times a week. Using natural hair oils is a great way to add some nourishment to your hair. Opt for oils that have healthy ingredients like olive, coconut, almond, jojoba, castor and the like. Heat up the oil slightly, making sure it is not too hot, but just warm. Massage this through the scalp and hair. Also, this will help strengthen the roots and prevent hair fall. You can wrap a warm towel around the head to add some extra benefits.
Regular Hair Trims
Your hair goes through different changes during pregnancy, causing a difference in hair texture and thickness. A good idea is to go for a regular hair trim that will help avoid split ends or rough ends. A new style is also a great mood enhancer!
Avoid combing hair when it is wet. Let your hair dry naturally, or use a hair dryer at medium heat. Comb it using a wide toothed comb when dry. This will help avoid hair fall.
