13 Best Deep Conditioners

Let's be honest, ladies -- every single time we flip it mid-conversation, shyly tuck it behind our ears or peek through it when it falls before our faces like a curtain, we know exactly what we're doing: making the stone cold heart of every onlooker melt like butter on the sidewalk in the middle of July. Whether you're rocking a face-framing pixie or waist-length layers, gorgeous, healthy hair is a gal's greatest accessory.

Love Long Hair? This High-Tech Beauty Product Can Help You Get There

What woman doesn't wish for silky, long, Rapunzel-like hair? Problem is, with all we do in pursuit of a full, just-from-a-blowout mane (fun fact: 60 percent of women blow-dry their hair two to three times a week), we could be doing more harm than good. As we style our hair with heat, we're also gradually damaging it.

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.
