mid-length-hair

Some women experience dry, damaged hair. This is usually brought about by too many chemical treatments, do-it-yourself relaxers and hair colors, too much heat styling and other health problems. There are remedies, treatments and services to correct dry and damaged hair from hair salons but there are also ways that you can do at home to remedy damaged hair.

Damaged hair is normally dry, and an extremely damaged hair will feel like straw when wet and sometimes even spongy to the touch. It usually has split ends, look frizzy and breaks easily. When treated with color, damaged hair can turn patchy since it has unequal porosity that cause it to absorb color irregularly.

Damaged hair is also difficult to control and style.
One of the more simple and easy remedy to damaged hair is the use of conditioners. Thick and heavy conditioners hydrate and protect damaged hair. Another simple remedy is hot oil treatment. There are products available in the market for hot oil treatment application. A great homemade conditioning treatment is olive oil. Simply apply olive oil to damp hair, let the hair soak it in for a few minutes then rinse it out. The result is shiny beautiful hair on the way to being healthy hair.

If the do-it-yourself conditioning treatment will not work, your best recourse is a professional conditioning treatment at your favorite hair salon. It should be a rather inexpensive treatment where your stylist applies a special conditioning solution into your hair and scalp, cover it with a plastic cap and allows the conditioner to sink in totally by drying it under a hair dryer. There really is no best way to get rid of split ends but to get a trim. And at times the only solution for damaged hair is really to cut it off.

over-30s

Turning thirty may have had a bigger effect on you than you had anticipated. Suddenly, infact overnight, you can’t use twenty-something in conversation anymore when describing yourself.

Perhaps that is why thirty is one of the most popular ages for having a change of hairstyle. If you’re suffering from the ‘thirty blues’ or simply want to consider a new style that has been proven to look great on women in their thirties, then why not consider one of the following current and modern styles:

The Soft Pixie Style

Women in their thirties are often juggling career, family responsibilities and a social life. So a short hairstyle can not only be a practical choice, but it can give you a sleek and current look. A soft pixie look needs layers that practically ‘melt’ in. They will stop your sides from taking on that choppy look and instead will give you a fun yet grown-up style. This pixie look works especially well if you have a heart shaped face.

Glamorous Waves

This stylish look works on pretty much all hair types. To achieve the look roughly blow dry the hair, winding sections around a one inch curling barrel. Allow the curls to cool then tip your head upside down and gently work your fingers through the curls to tease them up. The result should be glamorous curls that will have you feeling fun and modern at thirty.

The Short Bob With a Fringe

Even if your hair isn’t naturally sleek and straight, a good pair of straighteners will easily have you faking this cool chic look. Consider a daringly short bob, and finish home styling with a good quality anti-frizz styling product.
