Dandruff. It's one of those beauty ailments that no one really talks about, but it's one that almost all of us will experience at some point in our lives. And since we're no strangers to dishing on the ugly side of beauty (we've tackled ingrown toenails, gross ingredients in skin cream, and even our own nasty beauty habits), we're going to get into the nitty-gritty (flaky-scaly?) of what causes dandruff, and how TotalBeauty.com users addressed theirs with the eight best dandruff shampoos.

Want your money to wash down the drain right along with your freshly done, beautiful hair color? We thought not. It makes no sense to spend a fortune on coloring your hair at a salon, only to use hair care products that strip the color at home. So stocking up on proper hair care products post-treatment is an absolute must. Typically your hairstylist will suggest that you use a color safe shampoo and conditioner after you get an all over color or get highlights, to maintain the hue and prevent fading color. However, they might also try to sucker you into buying hair care products that are too pricy -- and ones you're not sure you'll even like. See products

I have terrifying childhood memories of my mom -- or worse, my dad -- brushing out my curly hair with a stiff, boar-bristle brush. No matter how many gallons of No More Tangles were poured over my head, the ordeal always ended in tears. read more
Being an astronaut is a tough job, defying gravity, orbiting earth and all. But whenever we see a shuttle launch, we can't help but ponder those nagging little questions, like, 'How do they pee in those suits?' or "Do women need to wear bras in space? (The answer is, apparently, yes.) So of course we were fascinated watching astronaut Karen Nyberg demonstrate part of her beauty routine onboard the International Space Station. read more
We do a lot of damage in the name of beauty. The blisters and bunions from jamming our feet into high heels. The flaming face after an aggressive chemical peel. But one of the silent victims in our pursuit of gorgeousness is ... our hair. All the dyeing, drying and frying we do frazzles it, and hair coloring -- stripping, bleaching, foiling and heat activating -- is one of the worst culprits. read more
We all love getting pampered at the salon, but when we have to spend $15 for someone to wash our hair, $80 for the color and another $50 for a blow dry ... we've got to consider that there may be better ways to spend our money, agreed?

This is the time of year when we'd like to keep our hair swept up into a stylish and trendy turban (there is such a thing, right?). Or, maybe just pulled back in a perma-bun. Anything to prevent spending more than 5 minutes on our hair, and keep the world from seeing the fried, flat and frizzy mop we're hiding. read more

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.
