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.

For all that's great about summer -- the travel, the sun, the pool parties, the excuse to knock back drinks with umbrellas -- there is one major downside for most of us.

It's a tough world for those of us with coarse, curly, or thick hair. Life is unpredictable when your hair naturally forms perfect ringlets one day and a giant puffball the next. I know when I wake up and see a massive mess on top of my head, I'll give up on any attempt at enhancing my curls and just but out the flat iron, since straightening seems to be the easiest way to de-pouf. 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.
