Shampooing your hair every day is passé -- these days, it's all about stretching the time out between washes as long as possible (hello, dry shampoo). And those in the know aren't washing with any old sudsy shampoo -- they're using a cleansing conditioner, a two-in-one product that gets your hair clean without stripping it of helpful, nourishing oils. Plus, you'll reap other benefits: namely, healthier, shinier, less frizzy and tangled hair. (Read more on the benefits of going suds-free here.) read more

Some women find DIY too intimidating to try, but coloring your hair at home with the right product can help you achieve professional results at home while giving yourself to an instant makeover. Nevertheless, you might wonder: Will a drastic color change be too hard to pull off? Will you get the shade you see on the box? Will it damage and dry out your hair? Will it cover dark roots or grays? read more
The quest for shampoo-commercial-worthy hair is often driven by the mantra "lather, rinse, repeat" and gallons of shampoo. But in a cruel twist of fate, some experts believe that shampoo is the very thing that's holding us back from the hair of our dreams. Normal shampoos are designed to remove dirt and oil from the hair, by way of detergents and chemicals called sulfates. Sulfates give us that rich lather and squeaky-clean feeling we all crave. However, says New York-based dermatologist Marnie Nussbaum, MD, FAAD, they're also stripping our hair of natural oils that keep it shiny and healthy. read more
Summertime hats are built for covering up -- those floppy hats and fedoras shield your face from scorching UV rays, and hide those sweaty, salty "beachy waves" or your chlorine-crunchy mop. But when cool weather hits, hats are all about keeping your noggin' warm. Problem is, the minute you set foot inside and take off that beret, the damage is done: Your hair looks like it's been run through a turbo engine. read more
If you wear hair extensions, chances are you're pretty picky about what type of hair you wear. You know if you prefer Remy or non-Remy hair, Indian or Brazilian, synthetic or human. You may also believe you can simply look at hair extension packaging to find out its origins.

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.
