Eyebrow Waxing Vs Tweezing

Eyebrow waxing or tweezing, which one do you prefer? Believe it or not, but tweezing is still being done by millions of American women. Ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch, that's the sound we make when we are tweezing our eyebrows. It takes time to pull one hair out at a time and each hair coming out brings with it an ouch. Eyebrow wax on the other hand pulls all the hairs out at once, so you only have one big ouch, well, actually two, one for each eyebrow.

It hurts to be beautiful. How many times did we hear that saying growing up? Well, sorry to say, but yes, sometimes it hurts to be beautiful. Eyebrow shaping is just one of those tasks we do to enhance the features of our face. The pain of eyebrow shaping is well worth it when you see the results in the end. The question is which method do you choose?

There are several methods used to shape our eyebrows. There's eyebrow tweezing, eyebrow waxing, eyebrow threading, laser hair removal and you can even go as far as shaving them off and drawing them in with a pencil. The costs can range from $5 up to hundreds of dollars, depends on the method which you choose and where you choose to have it done. Let's take a look at eyebrow waxing and tweezing which are two of the most popular methods of eyebrow shaping.

Eyebrow wax and tweezing can both be done at home, a salon or at a spa. Waxing can be done in a matter of seconds. Hot wax is applied to the hair to be removed, then covered with a piece of cloth and removed in one swift motion pulling out all of the hair with it. With tweezing, one hair is pulled out at a time until the desired shape is achieved which can be very time consuming and painful. While waxing isn't pain free, the sting from pulling your hair out is quick and only lasts a second or two. For the best results, all waxing should be left to the pros.

You can achieve great looking eyebrows with whatever method you pick. Waxing eyebrows however is quickly becoming the choice of many women, and men because of the convenience and inexpensive cost. Brow waxing is a great way to enhance your facial features and help you put your best face forward.

How To Tame Frizzy Hair

Frizzy hair can be a problem for women, especially those with curly hair who live in warm or humid climates. Before you even leave your home, your beautiful hair style can start to fall apart and make you look disheveled. You can wear your hair in a ponytail, but the situation can bring down your confidence and spoil your style.

Besides humidity, there are many causes for frizzy hair, the main one being that your hair lacks moisture. It's very important to use a cream conditioner after shampooing so that your hair can retain moisture. Keep in mind that excessive use of shampoo is bad for your hair because it causes your hair to lose its natural oils. For best results, wash your hair twice weekly.

Applying excessive heat with a flat iron or blow dryer everyday can add to the problem. The frequent use of hair dryers can not only make your hair look brittle, but can cause split ends as well. Styling your hair twice a week with the help of a heat protecting product is sufficient to reduce the frizz, keep you looking your best and lock in moisture.

Another cause of frizz is using chemicals or a lot of products to color, treat or manage your hair. While using these products may make you feel or look better temporarily, they tend to damage in the long run. Therefore, you should try to cut back on the use of styling products and talk to your colorist about how often he or she recommends doing color treatments so that you damage your hair as little as possible. A monthly deep conditioning can also help to reduce frizz for color treated hair and a small amount of gel can help control damaged hair.

Another method of getting rid of frizzy hair is to stop using a hairbrush. Using a wide-tooth comb is a better option because it does not break the strands, cause split ends or cause frizz. One of the best ways to detangle your locks is to run your fingers through them gently while in the shower and then pat dry with a towel as opposed to rubbing dry.

No matter where we live or how well we take care of ourselves, we all have to deal with frizz from time to time, but that doesn't mean that we should let it take over our day. This is a problem that can be remedied with a bit of patience and care. We hope that our suggestions will help you out. Good luck.

Healthy Hair Habits: Deep Conditioners

The use of deep conditioners should be a part of any healthy hair care regimen. You may ask: Why are they so important? It's hard to imagine that anyone would wash their hair without using a rinse out conditioner, unless the shampoo had a conditioner in it. With all the stress that we place on our hair, it's even harder to imagine not using a deep conditioner from time to time.

Before you ask yourself the following questions, you need to know why it's important to deep condition your hair. First, a good deep conditioner will hydrate dry hair by penetrating the hair shaft to restore moisture and to prevent breakage. Second, it can help to alleviate the daily damage we inflict upon our hair by the use of excessive heat and chemical treatments, etc. Third, they are treatments and usually are required to remain in the hair for 15-30 minutes.

Asking yourself the following questions about deep conditioners will guide you in the right direction.

1. How often should I deep condition my hair?

Opinions vary on how often you should deep condition your hair. A good rule of thumb to use is to determine how often you use heat, what elements your hair is exposed to on a regular basis, product use, and hair type. Some suggest once a month is sufficient even with dry, damaged hair. Others suggest at least twice a month. According to the literature that is out there, it's not really necessary to deep condition more than a couple of times a month.

(Note: For the best results,use a heating cap or sit under a hooded dryer with a plastic baggy. This helps to open the cuticle layer and penetrate the hair shaft.)

2. What type of deep conditioner is best for my hair type?

There are different types of deep conditioners for different hair types. There are those that are infused with essential oils and herbs, others with keratin proteins, silk and wheat proteins. You should determine right away if your hair needs a moisture-based conditioner or a protein-based conditioner. Different sources suggest that if your hair is dry and it snaps and breaks easily, you should use a moisturizing conditioner. If your hair is fine, and stretches then snaps, a conditioner with protein should be used.

(Note: Some people go with plant-based proteins opposed to animal-based proteins. More research is needed in order to determine which protein-based conditioners are best. It's possible that it's a matter of preference, but surely some will argue that one is better than the other and can provide justification for their claims.)

3. Can I use a regular rinse out conditioner as a deep conditioning treatment?

Some sources say that it's OK to use a regular rinse out conditioner as a deep conditioning treatment. This is the point where you will have to be investigators and read the ingredients list to distinguish which ingredients are similar and which are different in rinse outs and deep conditioners. Some say that rinse out conditioners only coat the top layer of the hair strand and doesn't contain ingredients that penetrate the hair shaft. Typically a conditioner that is for deep conditioning will let you know.

5 Reasons Why 2013 Is an Incredible Year for High Fashion Hair Style

Anyone who has spent time flipping through fashion magazines or had the opportunity to attend some of the top fashion shows in New York and Europe has noticed that hair styles seem to be getting as much attention as the clothing. Five styles really stand out.

Keep it Short

The days when women needed to have flowing locks in order to be considered feminine and sexy have passed by. Really short, pixie style haircuts for women have made a comeback. In addition to making eyes look larger, necks more graceful, and cheekbones appear even higher. The great thing about pixie cuts being trendy is the amount of care they require. All it takes to keep these cuts looking great will be a bit of gel and some finger combing. The only women who can't rock a pixie style haircut will be the ones with round or long faces.

Tied Up in a Knot

It looks like 2013 will be the year of the knot. More and more women on the fashion runways have taken to pulling their hair back from their face and securing it into a tight knot or bun. It's a dramatic look that draws attention to the eyes, jawline, and neck. The trick to creating the perfect knot will be using a fine-toothed comb to pull the hair from the face, securing the knot tightly, and using a liberal amount of ultra-hold hair spray. Once a technique for creating the knot has been perfected, women can dress up the look with a bedazzled comb, decorative bobby pins, or even a short, flowing scarf.

Make Some Waves

Every girl and woman has spent time cursing the heat and humidity that causes their hair to frizz. Luckily, 2013 has brought about the perfect solution... waves. All it takes to get the tresses back under control will be a curling iron with a large barrel which can be used to quickly add some wave and bounce to the ends of long hair. After curling the ends into loose waves and adding a quick spritz of flexible hair spray, the style will perfectly mirror the casual look seen in the beach wear section of fashion magazines.

The Side Braid

Celebrities with long hair have fallen in love with side braids. The style keeps hair calm during breezy red carpet appearances, can be achieved quickly, looks great with all face shapes, and creates a romantic appearance. Simply pull the hair over one shoulder, divide it into three sections, and twist it into a loose braid. A curling iron can be used to add some bounce to the end of the braid. Women who are prone to flyways will want to lightly use a flexible hairspray to keep the wisps under control.

Go a Little Retro

Just because a girl has long hair, it doesn't mean she doesn't occasionally want to try something a little different. By taking the ends of her hair and pinning them up close to her skull, she can create a faux bob that both accents her jaw line and draws attention to her mouth. The faux bob looks like a less severe version of the bob that women in '20s favored. Many celebrities have gone a little retro and selected the faux bob for red carpet events and award shows.

The great thing about all five styles is that the flatter most facial shapes and can be achieved without having to make a trip to the nearest salon. Each of these styles will work for a day at the office, or when out on a hot date.
