Day after day we complete the same routine and by the time all of our daily tasks are done, there’s no time left for pampering, especially by a salon or spa. If you don’t have enough time in your day to make a trip to the salon, you can try one of these five tips for making your hair look fresh in a few minutes or less.
Try a dry shampoo - Hair’s natural oils can leave it looking and feeling greasy. However, if you’re in a rush, you may not have the time to wash, style and dry. If you’re in a time crunch, try using a dry shampoo to get rid of the grease quickly.
Blow out - Blowing hair out can help your hair build body and show volume. If you have a little extra time, blow dry your hair using a heat spray in order to avoid hair damage. The volume that blow drying adds will help your hair stay lifted and styled throughout the day.
Use baby powder - This is the quick fix for when you look in the mirror and notice your hair looking oily. Apply a small amount of baby powder to your roots and blend it in. This will help eliminate that greasy look instantly without washing.
Switch up your part - Try parting your hair differently than you normally do. This will not only make you look like you got a new style, but it will trick your hair. Because the hair gets so used to being parted in the same direction, we usually just go along with how it naturally falls. Switching it up to the other side, or even down the middle, will keep your hair looking versatile. Plus, the middle part is this season’s hottest trend.
Use a semi-permanent color - Love Your Color has no ammonia or peroxide, which will keep your hair healthy. If you see your roots coming through, you can easily touch them up with this easy to use product. This is extremely useful for the time in between your trips to the salon when your color starts to fade. If you don’t use permanent dyes, you can use Love Your Color whenever you want to change your color or refresh your roots. It’s simple, quick, and will leave your hair with the color you desire!

Frizzy hair is an annoyance to women everywhere. Hair becomes frizzy from a lack of moisture and oils, which are necessary hair health. When strands are dry, they become desperate for any moisture they can obtain. Because of this, the hair shaft tries to open up and find any ounce of moisture. This is why hair becomes extra frizzy in damp weather. Even though frizzy hair is frustrating, there are easy ways to prevent it, and it all starts in the shower.
When you wash your hair, use cold water! The cold water closes your hair cuticles and produces less frizz and more shine. Also, don’t wash your hair every time you shower because washing can strip the strands of essential oils. Both of these solutions are easy ways to help minimize frizz. If you've washed all of your natural oils away, try using Moroccan or Argan oil. After you shower, apply a small amount of the oil to your wet or damp hair before you blow dry and style. This will help to minimize your frizz, but be careful not to use too much! Too much oil will weigh your hair down and make it greasy.
For an easy at-home solution, apply an olive oil and egg mask. Combine 1/4 cup of olive oil and one raw egg and apply to your hair. Leave this in for thirty minutes and then rinse out with shampoo and conditioner in the shower. This treatment will help restore the vitamins that your hair has lost and will help make it stronger and shinier. If you’re experiencing frizz in the colder months, rub a dryer sheet against your hair.
Keep in mind, this only works to help tame your frizzy hair in the winter, but it is a quick and easy fix, even when you are on the go. With these simple solutions that you can execute in the comfort of your own home, you can prevent frizz in no time! Image: http://www.mag4style.com/frizzy-hair-remedy/

Each new season brings news trends in hair, and spring and summer are no exception. With the warmer weather coming along, you’re probably thinking about changing your style to match the freshness of the upcoming seasons. If you want something new but don’t know where to begin, we have some tips for you to consider.
The first trend shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Super-straight hair will continue to be popular for the upcoming months, so don’t pack away your straightening irons with your winter gear. Glamour.com says that straight locks are in style, and they even suggest trying a middle part to add a touch of modern to your look. Glamour also predicts that low buns will be a hit this season. Slicked back hair secured at the nape of the neck has been the trend on fashion runways, and both loose and tight buns have been on the scene. Ponytails are also making moves—high on the head was the trend in 2012, while 2013 is seeing lower, more subdued styles of the classic hairstyle.
Sleek and modern aren’t the only trends being seen on the runways. Retro is making a comeback, with teased hair in beehives and accessories to match. Headbands, scarves, and hair jewelry are all things you can use to embellish your hairstyle. Bohemian braids are also big this season, according to Harper’s Bazaar. The magazine also predicts that loose waves will be popular and that the “messy” bed head look will continue to be in style.
Over all, the biggest trend for the upcoming seasons proves to be the middle part. Although your hair may be used to its regular pattern, you should try to switch it up in order to revamp your look in lieu of the spring and summer. If the middle part isn’t for you, try a bunch of braids or loose waves and see what works!

Thick, luxurious, beautiful hair is something many people desire, but sometimes can’t achieve. As age, the elements, styling damage, and other factors influence hair growth, thinning hair may become common. When your locks lack volume and thickness, they fall flat, leaving you with less than desirable results. If you want to prevent thinning from happening, there are a few things you may want to consider.
Woman’s Day suggests daily conditioning of the hair. Due to the amino acids that they possess, conditioners can help to protect hair from daily damage. They also suggest intense weekly treatments in order to lock in moisture and keep hair healthy. Avoiding products like gels and creams is also suggested because they weigh the hair down and make thin spots more noticeable.
Oprah.com notes that if thinning is due to medication or stress, you will be lucky enough for it to grow back. If it doesn’t the use of Rogaine is suggested in order to provide thickness and even help with regrowth. In order to create the illusion of thicker hair, you should keep your hair short, which will eliminate the look of thin, stringy ends.
Livestrong credits iron deficiency as one factor in hair loss. In order to prevent this, take an iron supplement and add more to your diet. Harsh chemicals in permanent dyes and over-styling can also cause hair breakage, which leads to thinning, so it is wise to resist overexposure to these products and styling tools. Hair is an essential accessory, and you want to make sure yours is in tip-top
shape. Thinning hair can be a cause of annoyance to many people, and many different factors can cause it. But, there are multiple solutions that can be used in order to prevent and reverse thinning so you can achieve the thick and healthy hair you want.

We all heard of the "The 10 commandments" before, could have heard of them from our families, seen the movie, or even studied it at Sunday school. Today we bring to you the 10 commandments of hair dye, information we are certain, was not given to us from Moses.
1. Thou shalt know thyself: Understand your natural color. Knowing where you are will always help you understand where you want to go.
2. Thou shalt not try to change color that is more than 2 shades lighter or darker than your current look
3. Thou shalt not wash thy hair before coloring
4. Remember to always perform a strand test
5. Honour thy box : Don’t always rely on the front of the box for color accuracy. Check the shades on the back or side for a more accurate description of color tones
6. Thou shalt cover thy hair after dyeing : Using the cap will help the color penetrate the hair more effectively for a longer lasting, better performing color
7. Thou shalt not be stingy with application: Especially true for those with thick hair, one box of color is not always enough
8. Thou shalt deep condition after coloring: This important step will improve shine, add moisture and lock in the color
9. Remember to follow the instructions that are given to you: They are created for a reason
10. Thou shalt seek out colors that are less damaging to hair: Try to avoid products that are filled with harsh chemicals like ammonia, peroxide and PPD. These chemicals will only further damage your follicles.
