In Between Lengths With Fine Hair
When you’re growing out fine hair, it can be easily weighted down. By choosing longer layers, you’re giving your hair more lift and movement.
A bob grown to shoulder length, better known as a “lob”, is great for fine-haired tresses. It’s sexy and chic, giving you length without unwanted weight.
Go for deeply parted horizontal side bangs as well to add sex appeal and versatility.
For evening looks, think half updo’s, jeweled barrettes, and a “peek-a-boo” style.
Do You Have Dry Hair?
Having to deal with dry hair is a big pain. There’s frizz, has little body or bounce, and it won’t hold curls.
There are many factors that cause dry locks. Your hair type, styling habits, or how often you condition your hair are just a few of these. This type of hair is literally screaming for extra tender loving care.
You can start by giving your hair some “rest” days from so much styling. Put it up in a messy updo or use a fun barrette for some sass.
Deep conditioning every week is a must. For an extra boost, talk to us about professional hydrating treatments. These will significantly enhance the results of your regular hair care.
Also, make sure your shampoo is a hydrating one. This is essential! And consider adding a quality hair oil or other smoothing product to renew body, bounce and shine.
Oily hair can be so frustrating. Oil, or sebum, is generally solid at room temperature, but it starts to melt at body temperature. That’s why hair is greasiest at the roots.
The solution? Dry Shampoo.
Dry shampoo gives your hair much needed oil relief, as well as body, volume, and shine.
But what else can you do to manage those greasy strands? Let us give you some hair care advice:
– Avoid aggressive shampooing. This not only strips your hair of oil, it roughs up your hair’s cuticle layer. Aggressive shampooing causes your hair to create more oil to replace what was stripped. Opt for a gentle cleanser instead.
– Exfoliate your scalp. Use an exfoliating shampoo to flush out dirt and dry skin that clogs your hair pores. This reduces oily build up without stripping your hair and it also increases shine and bounce!
– Add vitamins A & D to your diet. These two vitamins specifically have been shown to reduce the production of sebum. You do need to be careful with the amount, so check with your dermatologist first!
– Styling Products For Oily Hair. Be careful with excessive use of products. Silicone-based products and hydrating masks are excellent hair care products but can weigh down oily hair. Moderation is key!
