Get Perfect Hair in Any Weather

Remember when clichés could actually forecast the weather: March went in like a lion and out like a lamb, after the rain came a rainbow, and April showers brought May flowers? Predictable seasons told us how nature would behave, and thus, when to change over our wardrobe, how to pack for a vacation, and how our hair would react from one day to the next. And while you may have needed a stylist's advice at the start of a season for this last point, you could then use her tips until the weather reliably transitioned again.   See more

With all the different hair products for thinning hair that are currently on the market, how do you know which ones actually work?

The Best Conditioner For Oily Hair

Most people think that the right shampoo can help fix oily hair by itself, but in truth, you also need to use a good conditioner for oily hair. Both shampoo and conditioner serve different purposes: the role of shampoo is to remove dirt and sebum along with product buildup from the scalp, while the job of conditioner is to add shine and protect your hair from drying out. If you use the wrong conditioner, you could actually be contributing to increased oiliness without even knowing it! The best conditioner for oily hair is a lightweight formula that ideally contains tea tree oil in order to help absorb oil from your scalp.

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.
