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

How I Camouflage a Bad Hair Day

Bad hair days. We've all been there ... and it's so frustrating. When I had long hair, I wanted to cut it because it was way too heavy, greasy, and flat. So I cut it short ("low maintenance, here I come!") and was thrilled until pieces started sticking out every which way. Now, while it's growing out, it just looks dented and weird most days.   See styles

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.
