The Hair Diaries

Hair is an important beauty factor when it comes to any girl, especially one that is in college. Hair needs to be treated well. Some tips to keep your hair healthy, shiny and strong are as follows:
  • Any regular conditioner can be used as a deep conditioner. Just leave it in for about 5+ minutes while your shaving, ect.
  • Give your hair extra shine by turning the water to cold right before getting out. By running cold water through your hair you close the cuticle, which gives off shine.
  • Try to avoid using your blow dryer, straightener, ect. Major damage occurs with the extreme heat of these products. Try air drying your hair with a leave in conditioner, wavy, natural hair is back in!
  • Skip washing your hair every other day by using a dry shampoo on your scalp. My recommendation(and favorite) dry shampoo is Oscar Blandi Pronto

You can also use dry shampoo if your in a hurry to get to class or if you want to freshen up your hair in the middle of the day. This is a lifesaver for time in the morning.
Sephora carries two sizes of the Pronto, and at $11 & $19 each, it's by far a steal because it lasts forever. An aerosol formula of the Pronto is also available.
  • Using your conditioner on your scalp and head? Don't if your hair gets oily in the middle of the day. Use shampoo on your scalp and conditioner on your ends, ect. The wash-off from the shampoo is enough to clean the rest of your hair, and there's no need in drying it out! Even the best shampoos sometimes strip the hair too much.
  • Try to avoid putting your hair in pony tails. Major breakage can occur when it is tied up in the pony tail holder. If your hair is in your face, use bobby pins and a headband, not only is this a hair saver, it also looks chic and cute!
  • And as always, get a hair trim about every 6 weeks or so. By getting off the dead ends, your hair not only looks healthier, but it can grow to great lengths!

Ciao baby.
