Is Everyday A Bad Hair Day?
To Help Your Hair Reach Its Full Potential!
By Whitney Acke
Chances are, when you look in the mirror, you are not
thrilled with your hair. After all, those with curly
hair want straight hair…and vice versa. If you
feel like everyday is a bad hair day, things need to
change! Finding a way to work with what you have is part
of the successful hair equation. Here are some tips that
are not only effective, but inexpensive! If you are lucky,
they will leave you with hair like the models in the
This may sound insane, but washing your hair everyday
may be damaging your hair! Did you have to read that
statement twice? The truth is that shampoo can strip
your hair of its natural oils. If you have dry hair,
you may want to think about limiting your hair-washes
to three times a week. Your hair will be softer and
shinier than ever before!
Condition, Condition, Condition
If you want your hair to shine like the top of the Chrysler
Building, you need to condition! Conditioning your
hair is one of the easiest things to do…and
you can never do it too often. Although expensive conditioners
may be recommended by your stylist, you don’t
have to spend a lot to get soft hair. Visit your local
beauty product store and ask for a tub of “cholesterol”.
Once a week, lather it on your dry hair, leave it on
for a few hours, then shampoo like usual. You’ll
be amazed at the results…and the tub will likely
cost you less than $5.
You color your hair how much? Wow!! Damaged hair is not
usually beautiful hair, so be sure to limit yourself
on how much you process your hair. If you can’t
live without your hair color every six weeks, think
about switching colors from time to time. If you get
stuck in a habit with your color, your hair may not
enjoy that particular combination of chemicals each
month. But, if you switch from blonde to brown to red…your
hair will likely adjust better!
