What can I do to restore shine to my hair?

The most important thing you can do to help hair shine is prevent damage. This helps keep hair’s natural surface smooth and healthy looking. Get regular haircuts to remove the ends, as they tend to be the most damaged. Lastly, consider a dark hair color.

Why is my hair so greasy?

Apply a frequent-use shampoo gently to the scalp. Don't use your fingers to massage the scalp as this will increase the production of natural oils.

Watch what you eat as well. Fatty and oily foods can contribute to the scalp and greasy skin. If you are staying at home one day use this to give your hair a rest from its daily wash and blow dry.

Why does my hair always goes static, how can I stop it?

Typically hair always seems to be more static in the winter months. I always think this is due to central heating and going in and out of hot and cold atmospheres. To help control this you must use a blow-dry lotion that is suitable for your hair type every time you style your hair. When it happens to me in the salon sometimes, after I have finished blow-drying I spray some hairspray on a brush and brush it through the hair, this always makes a difference.

Why does fine hair tend to fall flat in the heat?

Hair, humidity, horrendous. These words often tend to be grouped together, especially in the hot summer months. In the same way that curly hair tends to get frizzy in heat and humidity, with fine hair humidity tends to make it go flat. This is because moisture usually returns fine hair to its natural configuration. Fine hair can be straighter and more flexible than thick hair, which can cause fine hair to fall flat in high humidity. Although it may sound counter-intuitive, women with fine hair need to use conditioning products to control the movement of moisture in and out of their hair for this reason. Fortunately there are lightweight conditioning products available for fine hair that don’t weigh hair down and, help prevent the impact humidity can on your hair.

How does diet affect my hair?

Food is one of the great pleasures of life. The benefits of a healthy diet are obvious when trying to watch one’s weight or cholesterol level, but what we eat also greatly influences the condition of our healthy-looking hair, making diet and hair linked to one another. Hair is a record of one’s diet and nutrition, and that means that what we are not eating can show up, too, in our hair. As protein is one of hair’s key building blocks, insufficient protein in one’s diet can lead to a decrease in hair’s diameter, making hair less healthy-looking and thick. In addition, crash dieting can result in hair loss, as hair’s growth cycle can be impacted, causing a higher than normal number of hair follicles to shed their hair fibers. The conclusion? Diet and hair are linked. If you want healthy-looking hair and beautiful hair, eat healthy foods, don’t crash diet, and get plenty of protein.

What effect does exposure to sunlight have on my hair?

Great free-flowing hair and sun are two wonderful elements of summer, especially when sunlight kisses hair into golden strands. But did you know that combining hair and sun doesn’t always have a positive effect? UV exposure can break down hair proteins, causing hair to look dull and weaken hair’s tensile and physical properties. This damage is more intense on the outer regions of the hair shaft, so people with thick hair have more natural resilience against UV damage than those with fine hair, who can experience more damaged hair. Thus, the connection between your hair and sun can be bigger than expected, and it can impact the appearance of your hair. The pigments in dark hair can filter some of this damage better than light hair pigments, thus providing a bit more protection against the breakdown of proteins that can cause damaged hair. This filtering action, however, is what causes hair to lighten with increased sun exposure.
