Keeping wet strands wrapped in a towel for a half-hour as you do your make-up will cause frizz! The roughness of the cotton forces your hair cuticles to open, making them more likely to go every-which-way, but the way you want. Instead, squeeze out excess water as soon as you’re out of the shower, then let your hair air-dry for five or ten minutes before blow drying.
Use rollers for high-volume. For a sexy lift, blow out your curls until they’re dry. Then, section off the hair on top of your head—between your temples and all the way back to the crown of your hair. Divide that section into three smaller sections vertically (as if you were making a mohawk), and wrap each in a 2-inch velcro hair roller. Let your hair sit like this for 30 minutes, and then unwrap your strands, lightly comb them out, and spray for hold.
As school is well on it’s way one of the concerns parents have is head lice. Starting to think about preventing head lice saves time and headaches. A helpful tool that helps to prevent head lice is tee tree oil.
Besides the basics of teaching kids not to share hats and brushes to prevent head lice, be sure to put a few drops of tee tree oil in your child’s shampoo and shampoo there hair with it (don’t forget to still condition the hair). Since behind the ears or at the nape of the head is where head lice usually starts, dab a little tee tree oil on your finger and apply it to this area. Head lice are not attracted to tee tree oil.

For beautiful health looking long hair it is important to cut it once every couple of months. The ends of long hair have been styled and coloured so many times that they get dry and frizzy. Visiting your stylist every other month to cut a half an inch off will not affect the length of your hair as it grows more than that within that time. Waiting longer than that between your cuts you will notice more and longer split ends which will lead to cutting off more of your hair.
