Want to change your hair color but can’t make up your mind? Here are some pointers which might help you. 

  • Decide if you want a permanent or a temporary or a semi-temporary hair color.
  • If you want a permanent one, you may first use a washable hair coloring to determine the color that you like.
  • Consider your eye color, natural skin color, and complexion in choosing your hair color.
  • You might also want to consider the colors of your wardrobe.

All those stated above, you may either complement or allow your hair color to blend with them.

Short Hair, Don’t Care!

Summer is here and as much as you love our long locks, having it is not just practical. It’s way too hot during the summer and you will only end up tying your hair up in a bun. That boring look just won’t do! To have a chic and stylish look, consider chopping your hair off! Celebrities like Michelle Williams, Charize Theron, Emma Watson and more are now sporting cute pixie cut; be brave enough and join the band wagon!

When you decide to chop your hair off, the first thing to do is to determine what kind of style will suit the shape of your face. Focus on your best features and get the hairstyle that will emphasize that.

Choose the right person to do the cut for you. This will be a huge change and you need someone that you genuinely trust to do this. Visit a salon and talk to a hair dresser about the style you want. Get into detail. If you can show photos, do so. Also ask for his/her advice as they know what will work well for your face.

Hair care myths II

  • Hair loss may be due to stress. They say that too much stress would result into thinning of your hair. This is not true. It may be due to poor diet or hormonal imbalance.
  • Hair loss might be caused by too much reliance on hair products. So far there is no evidence to this claim.
  • Too much exposure to UV light causes hair loss. Hair loss involves the follicles; sunlight must reach that far to cause hair loss. Besides, the hair is one of your protections against the sun.
  • Too much use of your blow dryer causes hair loss. The hair can get damaged from the use of blow dryer resulting in hair fall, but definitely not hair loss.
  • Too much washing causes hair loss. Actually, washing you hair is a good thing. Just know the right shampoo for your hair and you can wash them as you please.
