Do-it-yourself color ...

Home hair colouring kits are the ideal solution for today’s hectic lifestyles. You can get great results without the expense and time spent at a professional salon. With the wide variety of colours and available products, the effects you can create are endless. Permanent colour doesn’t wash out, but semi-permanent does and usually starts to fade after 3-5 weeks, depending on how often you shampoo. If you’re short on time, not a problem! There are even products that can colour your hair in as little as 10 minutes! If you’re covering gray, special kits for touching up roots are now also available. Applying colour only to the roots spares the rest of your hair from further dryness and/or damage. Be sure to test the product first to prevent an allergic reaction. Remember to always deep condition your hair after using a chemical treatment to help restore hydration and minimize any damage to the hair shaft.

 Tips For Good haircut:-

These tips will help in the formation of good haircut as:-

1. Sit up straight. Don't cross your legs when you sit in the stylist's chair -- it skews your posture, so your cut could be uneven once you stand up. Instead, sit up in the chair, legs uncrossed.

2. Collect pictures. The biggest hair disasters arise when your stylist doesn't understand what you want. Pictures will help convey your message.

3. But be realistic. You may love a cut on a magazine model, but if your hair is not the same texture or your face is not the same shape as hers, the cut won't look the same on you. Ask your stylist for variations appropriate to you.

4. Soften a square jawline with layers. Keep them long and choppy around the lower half of your face.

5. Use your hands. Instead of asking for an inch off the ends, use your hands to show your stylist where you'd like your hair to fall.

 Growing out your hair?

Every single hair on your body grows from its own individual hair follicle. Inside the follicular unit, new hair cells are generated at the root of the hair shaft. As the new cells form, they force the older cells out of the follicle. As they’re pushed out, the cells die and become the hair that we see. The hair on your arms stays short because the cells that produce these hairs are biologically instructed to stop growing about every couple of months. As for the hair follicles on your head, they are programmed to continue growing for years at a time, so these hairs can grow to be very long. If you’re trying to grow out your hair, be patient! Each hair on your head grows for 2 to 6 years at a rate of only about ¼ to ½ inch each month. Your hair grows in repeated cycles. On average, 90% of the hairs are in a growth phase, and for the remaining 10%, they rest, shed and start growing again. Keep your hair healthy by regularly shampooing and conditioning, with the frequency and product selection dictated by your hair type. Also, minimize your hair’s exposure to heat and chemical treatments

Use a hair conditioner regularly

Conditioners mimic the function of natural oils in your hair by making it softer and shinier. Hair conditioners also neutralize the static electricity of flyaway hair to prevent frizziness and increase manageability. The regular use of a conditioning product will provide protection and keep your hair looking and feeling its best. If you have oily hair, apply conditioner only on the ends and avoid the scalp. However, if you're using an anti-dandruff conditioner, the product should be applied to both the scalp and shaft. Some anti-dandruff formulas are gentle enough for daily use or even on normal or chemically treated hair, so you won't have to purchase multiple products to suit the variety of hair types in your house

 Wavy Hair.  What Are The Characteristics?

Hair dressers love wavy hair it's often thick and coarse and there's normally loads of it to play with. It also suits both long and short styles easily. The trouble is, those of us who are blessed with wavy hair would rather it was either poker­straight or in tumbling ringlets, but why waste time wanting what you don't have when what you do have can look so fantastic? The key to bringing out the beauty of wavy hair is dealing successfully with the two problems that come with it. The first of these is static, which can create the dreaded frizz, particularly on the crown of the head. The second is lack of volume w hich can cause flattening at the roots, creating a bell-head look.

How To Care For wavy Hair

Thick coarse hair can handle frequent washing but responds best to being left for two to three days between shampoos. When you do shampoo, you're unlikely to need thickening shampoos, but this doesn't mean that you should just grab any old bottle off the shelf because wavy hair is so thick, it can easily be weighed dowen. So using a volumizing shampoo(which provides lift within the hair). Will counteract this and will help maximize bounce and life. Wash your hair and follow up with a light leave-in conditioner which will provide a protective layer between the hair cuticle and the moisture that can create frizz. Now it's time for drying, which is where you can create truly wonderful waves. Start by towel-drying the hair lightly (by pressing and patting, not rubbing,which again creates frizz).

For ultimate results, use the following wave-enhancing technique:

  • Apply some anti-frizz serum or styling cream.

  • Divide the hair into sections about one inch across.

  • Using your fingers, twist these into ropes and fasten them up into little pin curls on your head.

  • Leave to dry naturally.

  • When the sections are dry, unravel and rake through with your fingers.

If you're in a hurry this approach won't work, so you're going to have to fake waves and volume, to do this, apply a little mousse to the roots of your hair and blow-dry using a warm setting (hot will straighten the hair out) and pointing the dryer upwards. When hair is about 90 per cent tip your head upside down and blow-dry that way.
