Claire's Beach to Back-to-School Makeover

What happens when a girl with natural, rich chestnut hair spends a few months under the California summer sun? She winds up with a seriously sun-bleached and slightly frazzled head of hair. Claire needed to get a fresh, clean cut and style before she headed back to school in the fall. "I spent almost every weekend on the beach and it definitely took a toll on my hair," said Claire, 20. "The beachy look worked for the summer, but I'm headed back to school and I'll be going on job interviews soon, so I needed a more professional look."   read more

Do Not Get Highlights Without Reading This First

When I hear the word "highlights," the images that come to mind aren't pretty. I see a woman with enough foil in her hair to wrap a Thanksgiving turkey. A guy with strategically placed strands of bleach -- streaks, if you will -- in his spikey, gelled hair. But when I see a salon's list of coloring services, there's an entire vocabulary beyond "frosted tips" and professional versions of Sun In that are a total mystery to me. We're in a world of ombre, balayage, and partial-foil-lowlights that may or may not be both weaved and sliced, but what does it all mean?   read more

Want Your Hair to Grow?

As I've gotten older, my hair has gotten thinner. "Why is your braid so skinny?" my sister asked at a family party a few years back. That's when I knew something had changed. The super-thick French braid I had as a kid was gone -- it's now anemic and scraggly at the ends.   See vitamins

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.
