This week's theme: HAIR! Often neglected in the world of cosmetics and beauty, a great head of hair can make of break your look, and therefore must not be ignored!!!
Today's topic: SHORT HAIR.
Short hair typically requires much less maintenance than long hair, but steps to keep your hair looking fresh still must be taken!
1. GET IT CUT!!! Short hairstyles tend to grow out faster than long ones, so getting your hair cut every 3-4 weeks will keep your cut looking fresh and eliminate split ends.
2. COLOR. Obviously utilized by many longer styles, color is a great way to add dimension to short haircuts with highlights and/or lowlights. Make sure that you get these done with a professional, as at home coloring kits can leave brassy deposits in your hair causing irreparable damage.
3. CONDITION. Okay, so you just shampoo'd your hair and next thing you do is condition, right? WRONG. With short hair styles, using conditioner after every wash will make hair more difficult to manage and style. Using a good quality conditioner twice a week for 15 minutes will be all you need. Rinsing hair with lemon juice after conditioning will leave hair with extra shine. I like BIOINFUSIONS Olive Oil Deep Conditioning Treatment for bi-weekly use.

4. STYLE. Nowadays, there are so many products out there specifically designed for short hair. It is best to start with a lightweight hair texturizer such as BED HEAD Mastermind, which offers texture, hold, and shine without looking greasy. Place a small amount in palm of hand, rub hands together, and work through damp hair. After hair is dry, style with a fingers, and set into place with a lightweight hold spray like FEKKAI Sheer Hold Hairspray. Less is more with short hair, otherwise your hair will look stiff and greasy.
