Nothing screams, "good hair day," like a spectacular salon blowout. And while we'd like to consistently schedule those weekly hair appointments, our budget doesn't always allow it. Even more unfortunate, blow-drying our hair at home just doesn't ever seem to come out the same, even if we've become a master at wielding that dryer. So, why can't you get those same salon-worthy strands at home? Most likely, your issues lie with the fact that you're using a subpar blow dryer. but why spend so much money on a hair dryer when the cheaper options are so much, well, cheaper? read more

Let's be honest. Summer is a magical time for us. But for our hair, not so much.
While we take in all the fun, our hair takes a beating, courtesy of the sun, salt water, chlorine and around-the-clock A/C. The result: seriously damaged hair, just begging for moisture. That's where a damage repair mask comes in. Since we're not going to stop living our fun summer lives (YOLO), we need a hair mask that will repair damaged strands and effectively erase the signs of summer. read more
From Taylor Swift's edgy transformation to Ashley Olsen's recent platinum dye job, countless celebs have reached for the bleach, inspiring us all to go lighter and lighter with our own locks. But what no one bothers to tell us after we bleach the living daylights out of our strands is just how hard it's going to be to maintain that perfect platinum tone. Yes, the one you worked so hard for to achieve in the salon chair (sometimes for upwards of nine hours) is actually put in harm's way every time you step into the shower or lay out on the beach. read more
Everyone deals with frizz on some level, but not all frizz is created equal -- and neither are the products used to treat it. For instance, serums that keep coarse curls defined and smooth all day weigh down fine hair and make it look greasy in a matter of minutes. 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.
