Hair Bang Styles For 2010

14 Oct

The easiest and quickest way to make a change to your hair style is to add bangs or change your part.

Bangs are great and everyone can probably wear some variation of them.  Keep in mind that when you cut bangs, you will be waiting quite awhile to grow them out if you end up not liking the way they look with your hairstyle.

There are different types of bangs for different face shapes. Choose a style that is more flattering for your face verses a bang you seen on someone else. What works for one person may not be flattering on the next.

Have fun with your bangs by styling them different ways.

One suggestion is to clip in hair extensions to see if you like the look of bangs before you get them cut.  Clip in hair extensions can be ordered online or can be found at many department stores for a reasonable cost or even at your local Sally’s or beauty supply store in your area.

The basic bangs available include:  eyebrow, straight, layered, choppy, side swept, basic, fringe and not really bangs.

Hair should be fun and remember it all does grow back. What bang type are you wearing?

Men’s Leave In Conditioner

8 Oct
Most guys don’t want to condition their hair. They figure it’s a waste of time, or they don’t like the way it weighs down their hair. But not conditioning is a mistake, and here’s why: When you shampoo, you’re opening your hair cuticles, which, on a microscopic level, makes them look like little Christmas trees. The shampoo washes out the dirt hiding under the branches. The conditioner closes up the cuticle, stopping dirt from getting in and adding shine.
Although I prefer a traditional conditioner, some guys hate adding another step to their morning bathroom routine.
A suitable alternative is the new bed head leave in conditioner for men, which isn’t nearly as girly and involved as it sounds. After your shower, when your head’s still damp, spray some in. And then forget about it. (Styling product can be added a minute later.) The Bed Head gets right on the Christmas tree and stays there, making your hair softer and less brittle. And giving you a better chance the next time a woman runs her hand through it.

What Curly Hair Type Are You?

8 Oct


Do you suffer from curly hair that’s dry, damaged, frizzy, or uncontrollable? Are you open to trying something new? The curly girl method (also referred to as “no-poo”) is based off the book “Curly Girl” by Lorraine Massey. The nickname “no-poo” alludes to not using a sulfate shampoo, because of sulfates’ power to strip the hair of its natural oils. Once you take away the sulfates your hair can retain its natural moisture. Like many beauty regimens, the results vary from person to person, but this one just might work for you. So, say good-bye to the frizz and split ends and hello to softer healthy curls! 

Sulfate free products are so much nicer and easier on the hair. It allows for natural moisture to come back into the hair giving your curls more definition.

I personally found my staple products. What are yours?

Whatever your curls maybe and you feel like your not getting the best from your products. Google and educate yourself about sulfate free  hair products.  You will see how much damage sulfates leaves on the hair over year’s of use and abuse. Find more natural hair products that are lighter weight on your hair. Check out the curly girl method as well as read the book.
