Hey! Hair Hints, Anyone?
Ma teacher is making a book about hair, soo she got us to help.
Any of you got hints for us?

What sort of hints do you want? Styling, cutting, colouring? ^_^

Anything you got.
For any type of hair.

My teacher wants anything about hair. She's got us asking people in other schools (that we already know, of course), friends, family about their hair to send pictures of their hair, or to write about their hair or whatever.

Of course, not everything will be used.

I'mnot sure, but I think this book is gonna be for both guys and gals.

So all in all, any help is welcome!

Thank you!

I can probably give you some random stuff ^^ I've coloured and changed my style quite a lot (I've been brunette, purple, red, another purple, another red, bleached then blue and green and then blonde).

I know for soft nicely cut layers a razor blade is used for cutting by dragging it downwards on the hair. It gives a very whispy look and is great for short layers (It's also what I do to cut wigs)

As for colour, I've never been one to do a shade or so away from your natural. I may have forgotten what my natural hair colour is! For bright and vibrant colours it's always best to bleach your hair first, for crazy colour (like electric blue and fishbowl green ) I'd recommend vegetable based dyes as although they're not permenant they don't add to the damage the bleach has done to your hair. It's commonly said that constantly dyeing your hair is very bad for you, it probably is, but as long as you take good care of your hair then I can't see a problem with it. My hair is still as strong as it was before I started dyeing it. But what I will say is it's a slight addiction! Once I started dyeing my hair I've found it hard to stop ^^

~Hair care!~
Conditioner is a MASSIVE thing, you always have to condition your hair expecially if you've just dyed it. I use a flat iron spray before straightening to give an extra layer between the heat and my hair.

I can't really think of anything else off the top of my head ^^' I know how to do curls with striaghters and hair spray and a few other random style things.

If you can think of something else you'd like to know about or want pictures of anything I'd be happy to help.

With long hair (mine is bra strap lenght, i'm aiming for tailbone):

heat can ruin it, any sort of heat can mess it up, and those "heat protection" products do very little;

Never towel dry, wrapping it up in a towel is fine but don't rub you will cause it to break;

The only cure for a split end is to cut it off about a 1/2 inch above the split; nothing can mend them inpite of product claims, thay will only tempoeraly 'glue' it back togeather;

Washing you hair every day is bad, it strips the oils out and will make it dry and then too greasy when you stop and leave it a few days in between (time will restore the balance);

Dying hair with henna is a million times better than ANY chemical dyes,
except with pre-processed henna that contains PPD, which is very dangerous and if you are not already alergic too you will become (i can't remeber the details, but it triggers the immune system and is potentaly carcenogenic)

I agree with Infinitydragon. I forgot to mention that my hair is really short and doesn't even reach the bottom of my neck ^^ so flatiron and blowdrying doesn't make it frizz at all
