"Is it really bad to wash your hair every day?" As a beauty editor, I get this question all the time. And while the technical answer is no (as long as you don't also heat-style daily), why would you want to shampoo every day? I'd be thrilled if I never had to wash my hair again. See tips

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

As someone who's always had a relatively thick, healthy head of hair, hair loss wasn't even on my radar. I mean, sure, I knew that it was an issue many men and women contend with. But happily, I'd never had any personal dealings with it. Then a friend -- a contemporary in her thirties -- began regaling me with her thinning hair tales of woe and I learned that hair loss can hit you out of left field at pretty much any age. Swell. Something else to fret about. read more

We have a policy here at Total Beauty: The more a product costs, the more it needs to wow us. A $2 lip gloss that's a little sticky? Meh, we can deal. A $30 lip gloss that pulls the same stunt -- sorry, that's just not going to fly. See products

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.
