Hair is the most important part of your personality. Styling your hair gives you a complete new look.
Here we are guiding you with the ways of styling your hair. You have planned a party and want to look chic then you can open your hair by blow drying them.

GUIDE TO BLOW DRYING

Blow drying is very simple to do all you need is a proper dryer and a hair brush. Blow drying can give you a look which you actually want it can give your hair straight as well as curly look. It leaves your hair look beautiful for hours.

Blow drying is done in steps:

TIPS FOR BLOW DRYING

Blow drying can be done by anybody but it should be done according to the quality of hair and the style you want.

For Smooth Finish: For a great finishing look all you need is a large paddle brush that helps you to get a smooth and silky look. Brush your hair down till the ends along with airflow of your blow dryer which aims down in the direction of the ends.
This will help your hair cuticles to become smooth and make your hair shine and that will give you exotic look.

For Double Crown: If you have a double crown then blow drying your hair flat would not help you out rather that would make it more precise. To cover up your crowns you should firstly dry your hair in the opposite direction to what you want, and then dry it back the other way.

Section your hair use clips to tie up the top layers and start with the underneath sections. Dry each section completely then move on to the next. This will make your hair stand up and that will give a great look. You can save your time by drying most of the moisture out of your hair by shaking it dry with your hand and hair-dryer.

For one who has a Cowlick: A tuft of your hair grows in a different direction from the rest of the hair and usually does not lie flat. You should choose a hair cut that incorporates the cowlick into the style. You should use a round or a vent brush. You can even blow dry your fringe hair forwards to weigh it down and have a great new look.

Know the great supplements for hair

Saturday, June 28th, 2008

I hope that you aren’t expecting some miracle solution that will help you grow ten inches of hair in a month. Unluckily, growing hair takes time and lots of patience. If you hear someone claim that they can do it otherwise, I’d be very cautious before taking their advice. However, there are several things that you can do to attain healthy hair and speed up the growing process - if you’re willing to pay the price.

You may have noticed that women from the same family often have the same hair growth patterns. If you should see a woman that grows hair well, the chances are that the other women in her family grow hair well too. The same is true for women who cannot grow hair well. This is because heredity many times plays a big role in how our hair grows.

You may be saying, “My family members just aren’t hair growers, so I’m stuck, right?” Not necessarily. Many times family traits are inherited because nutritional habits are also passed down. Nutritional deficiencies can be inherited just the same as hair color. The good news is the cycle can be broken, but it takes patience. With proper nutrition, deficiencies can almost always be reversed, but sometimes it takes several months or even years to completely reverse.

Even if you don’t have a deficiency, proper nutrition and supplements can be used to boost you hair’s growth rate. If you want to add foods to your diet that will help hair growth here are a few you may want to try:Barley

Barley: This nutritional grain is good for a number of things, but its high content of niacin, a B vitamin, is essential for healthy hair.

High protein foods: Without enough protein, hair is forced into the resting phase, and is shed prematurely. Try adding more lean meats, beans or lentils to your diet. Protein is composed of the amino acids necessary to grow new cells - including hair. (Have you ever noticed how beautiful a Hispanic woman’s hair is? It’s because of the high protein from the beans in their diet).Avocado

Avocados, nuts and seeds: These contain high vitamin E, necessary for healthy hair.

Raw oats and bean sprouts: These contain silica, a very important mineral that is a must for growing healthy hair.

Sufficient fat: Many people automatically turn their noses up when fat is mentioned, but certain amounts of fats are necessary for health in general and for healthy hair. The key is finding the right kinds of fats. EFAs (essential fatty acids) found in foods such as fish, and pumpkin, are extremely important for healthy hair. Also, find a good balance from other plant and animal sources.

Luckily, modern science has made it possible to get proper nutrition very easily without having to eat several pounds of the foods that contain the nutrients we need. This is through nutritional supplements. Even when taking nutritional supplements, make sure that you’re getting ones of a good quality, or they just won’t benefit. Make sure the supplement manufacturer has a reputation for good quality.

Here’s a list of the supplements that will help you grow great hair:

VITAMINS: Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Biotin, Inositol, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12.

GET GREAT VITAMIN SUPLEMENTSVitamins and minerals

MINERALS: Calcium, Potassium, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, Iodine, Selenium, Copper, Silica, Zinc, Sulfur, Chromium

BUY COLLOIDAL MINERALS

HERBS: Sage, Chamomile, Catnip, Burdock Root, Horsetail

If you have very curly hair, you may have a hard time growing hair. Curly hair rarely grows long, so this doesn’t mean that you have a deficiency.Herbs Curly hair is beautiful in its own way, whether it’s long or short.

There are several health situations that can keep your hair from looking its best. Thyroid problems, gastrointestinal issues, and even hormone imbalances. If you don’t notice at least some improvement in your hair’s quality after several months, you may consider an underlying health problem.

Curly HairCurly Hair is totally different from straight hair. Its formation is different and its needs are different. Like short hair styles of any other type, short curly hair styles make a statement. Maintaining Curly hair demands a different approach. It begs for understanding.

And it’s not for reasons of fashion alone that that you need to look at curly hair in a different light. There are just two ingredients you need to ensure at the very outset - the right hair cut, and the type of care that your curly hair really, really needs to retain its style.
