Hi, My Name Is Kristen Bell, and I'm a Dry Shampoo Addict

Summer-Proof Beauty Tips From Bathing Beauties

Mermaids are portrayed as beautiful, siren-like creatures with gorgeous, long locks; glowing skin and perfect makeup that never runs. But in real life, we know Ariel's fire-engine red hair wouldn't stand a chance against the sun and water. Skin without SPF would burn and blister (not to mention, leave some serious clamshell tan lines), and we'd hate to think of the prune-like state our fingers and toes would be in after a lifetime submerged. What's a mermaid to do? We asked the closest thing to it, members of the Aqualillies, a professional synchronized swimming troupe, who can spend a whole day in the water, and still look gorgeous. Here, their best summer hair, makeup and skin care secrets against which chlorine, sun and surf don't stand a chance.   read more

How Much Product Do You Really Need?

If a little bit is good, then a lot must be better, right? Not when it comes to your beauty products. According to experts, the products we use on a daily basis adhere to the Goldilocks principle. Too small of a dollop may mean your anti-aging serum may not work at all, but too big of a blob of deep conditioner could mean greasy hair and split ends (not to mention a depleted bank account).   read more

13 Best Color Protecting Conditioners

So -- you just walked out of the salon with your freshly dyed hair. It's vibrant, it's shiny, it's beautiful and you love it. But then, day after day in the shower your pricey, gorgeous hair color starts swirling down the drain. Not pretty. So what's a girl to do? One word: condition. Okay, let's make it three words: color-protecting conditioner. Using quality hair care products is honestly all it takes -- well that and staying out of the sun (which you should be doing anyway). Since coloring hair too often can damage your tresses (not to mention put a fat dent in your wallet), you need to make your color last as long as possible. The way to do this is by using hair care products that will lock in color and prevent fading.   See products

Hair Care Information and Advice

If you're like most women, then you're concerned about the appearance of your hair, and will do what it takes to take care of it. Starting now, it's time to banish dull and dry hair from your life, and take better care of your hair to get lustrous locks that will turn heads. To help you, Total Beauty offers you expert tips on hair care for shiny, glossy hair.



If your hair is in good condition and is healthy, then your hair care regime will only need a few tweaks to keep your tresses looking great. One way to have healthy hair is to maintain a healthy lifestyle; your mane will be in better condition, naturally. Your daily diet should include plenty of water, as well as lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. Opt for grilled or baked dishes rather than fried food, and limit your intake of cola or coffee, which have excess caffeine.

Perming, bleaching, or coloring frequently cause damage to your hair as they strip the shaft of its natural oils. Experts say that hair should have at least eight percent moisture for it to look silky and shiny. Using products meant for chemically treated hair can protect your tresses and make them look smooth and glossy.

Look through Total Beauty's hair care section to discover great secrets for gorgeous locks. Total Beauty offers some of the best hair care advice on the web, so you can have great hair all the time.
