    No Shampoo Hair Experiment Is Worth Tracking

    Dry Shampoo

    This No Shampoo Hair Experiment Should Yield Some Interesting Results

    Do you think it’s possible we may have all been duped into believing we need shampoo, expensive, exotic brands that claim to make our hair thicker, shinier and full of luxurious body it otherwise wouldn’t have???

    “One Day We All Could Have No Shampoo Hair”

    After reading this you may rethink your beauty routine . . .

    I have commented before on the no shampoo hair concept, its not a novel idea but, it is a controversial one.

    I admit the longest I’ve gone, using the no shampoo hair routine was probably about 7 days, just to try it out, but I wasn’t being challenged to go longer.

    The theory says, that during the 6 weeks of a no shampoo hair routine, your hair will go from smelly, oily and greasy to it’s natural sweet smelling, bouncy natural state. See what the participants have to say! I’ll do a follow up article in April when the experiment ends.

    The theory that shampoo destroys the balance of your hair’s natural oils, is being put to the test by some dedicated fans of ABC Radio in Sydney, Australia. “The Great No Shampoo Hair Experiment,” started on March 09, 2007 challenges any willing participant to abstain from using shampoo for six weeks and report back what family, friends, hairdressers etc. have to say about their new look.

    Are You Washing Your Hair Too Often?

    Am I Washing My Hair Too Often?

    It’s a question I get all of the time from my custom makeover clients and my readers. Well Kaaronica Evans-Ware, BellaOnline’s Ethnic Beauty editor, takes the time to run the experiments that answers that question for herself.

    In my experience, that is the only way to find what your best hair care routine should look like. Kinky or very tightly curled hair is the most fragile of all hair types and we can only speak in generalities when suggesting how often you should go between washings. But, the difference of washing your hair once a week or four times a week, makes a huge difference on the appearance of your hair..

    Your lifestyle and hair type will determine how many times you should wash your hair each week. A favorite book of mine for your hair type is, “Andre Talks Hair,” by Andre Walker. The book is full of great tips and advice on the care and styling of your hair, especially if you have kinky hair types.

    I need to be honest here, I have limited professional experience with kinky hair, but of the experience I do have with all hair types. Don’t go just by what you’ve read or heard, regarding hair care, do your own experiments!.

    At the end of the experiment, I found that I could wash my hair everyday but it would probably create more problems than I’m willing to put up with. I’ve never had dry scalp and I’m not about to start just for cleaner hair. The time commitment was the easiest component to incorporate as it became part of my healthy mind and body goals

    Daily Hairstyles Variety

    Daily Hairstyles Long hair, short hair, two styles, eight looks!

    Now that I’m not behind the chair daily, I think I understand a bit better why the average woman doesn’t change how she styles her daily hairstyle as often as she would like. It comes down to time, know-how and practice.

    TIME –The average time women tell me they spend daily on styling their hair is about 10, 15, sometimes 20 minutes. Women spending more time than that say that it’s time to find a new daily hairstyle. You can find different ways to style your hair that won’t take any longer than what you do now. Where you do need to allow for time . . . is in the learning curve.

    “Daily Hairstyles Variety”

    KNOW-HOW –You need to know what product and tool to use and how to use them. Ask your hairdresser next time to show you a different technique, then go home and practice it. Hairstyle magazines are a great resource too, for different hair styling techniques.

    PRACTICE –Allowing yourself the time to practice upfront, is the key to change. Don’t give up, learn from your mistakes. If you don’t know what your doing wrong, make it the topic of your next discussion at the hair salon, or ask around. Most mistakes you make are easy to correct.

    I came across this article today which shows a long hairstyle and a short hairstyle both styled 4 different ways. They give both a hair care product and tool used to create the look. You don’t need to get hung up on the hair care product name brand, just note what type of product is used, i.e.: straightening serum, gel, styling spray and try something similar. As for the tools, the Size of the iron or rollers you use and how hot they are does make a difference.

    Make note and ask your hairdresser for advice if you’re not satisfied with the results you get when styling your hair . . . that’s what they are there for!
