A little background…
You have the new dress and your shoes are perfect. Your nails are a great length and you have practised your makeup a million times. Finally, you are all set for that big party. You haven’t forgotten a thing. But what happens if your hair decides not to co-operate? Will all your efforts be a waste of time?
Love Your Hair For Christmas
•Choose a shampoo that is formulated for your hair. A good shampoo will actually remoisturise your hair.
•Apply shampoo to the scalp (where it is most greasy, not to ends). The amount is very important. Squeeze a small amount (the size of a quarter) into your hand. •Be sure to spend a few minutes massaging your scalp, with a scalp brush or your fingers. (This is also a great time to clean your combs and brushes.
•A good conditioner untangles hair, smoothes the cuticles and replaces lost moisture. condition the ends but not the scalp especially if you have oily hair
•Blott hair with towel but no rubbing. Let dry naturally as often as possible.
•Comb thru to detangle
•Have your hair cut every 4 weeks, if it’s only the ends. Split ends can ruin long hair faster than anything else.
•Look for conditioners that contain Pro-Vitamin B5, humecterants and other state of the art ingredients. These ingredients can actually penetrate the hair shaft and lock in moisture.
•Give your hair a treat by washing it in Evian water for two weeks. You will notice a difference in the condition of your hair and scalp. If you like saunas, try applying a nourishing conditioner before you go in. don’t forget about our banana conditioner link in Bananas = Beauty.
Things Not To Do
•Don’t wash your hair in a basin (yes, I recently read about a celebrity who did this??)
•Don’t overbrush your hair. The hundred strokes that we grew up hearing, was wrong. Your brush should be used for styling only.
•The Davines Hair Putty
•I’ve been usingthe Sebastian Proffesional Shampoo and Conditioner since my last color (about two months) and absolutely LOVE IT! Usually my color fades within 6 weeks but it still looks great (except for the roots – LOL). The whole Sebastian line is very reasonably priced. I bought the products at Picasso Day Spa & Salon.

•I’ve mostly always use the Wella line and it works exactly as they say. There are other products too, but WELLA is my favourite line. NIARNA
