Well, you should.   read more

Make Your Hair Color Last Twice As Long

There's nothing better than just-home-from-the-salon new-color euphoria. But unless you're the Martha Stewart of color care, three weeks later, blonde highlights are brassy, rich chocolate browns become muddy, and that sassy, vibrant red is practically nonexistent.

Gisele Bundchen Gets a Big Beauty Campaign

Gisele Bundchen has the hair that launched a thousand copycats. Not only is she the queen of city-friendly "beach waves," but if we recall correctly, she also played no small role in the ombre look's stratospheric rise to popularity. Yeah, she's kind of to blame for that period in the last couple of years that saw everyone going lighter on the bottom. Is that over yet?   read more

Want to Know What Lorde Uses on Her Curly Locks?

If anyone had reason to rush to their computers upon hearing the news that Lorde was doing a Reddit Ask Me Anything, it would be curly-haired girls. (For the uninitiated, the forum's Ask Me Anything threads, or AMAs, have featured everyone from Zach Braff to President Barack Obama.) At just 17, the New Zealand-born singer-songwriter has fascinated critics and listeners alike, so it's seemingly only natural that Reddit users and fans would flock to her AMA with all sorts of questions... like, why is she always talking about teeth in her lyrics, and what shampoo does she use?   read more

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.
