A Rough Battle To Smoothen Your Dry Hair | Asian Hair

Dry hair occurs mainly due to heat, the use of excessive chemicals applied on your hair and also by not taking good care of your hair. This is more so a common problem with asian hair for asians love to dye their hair to other color other than staying black. Every person’s hair has a certain amount of moisture which preserves your hair and does not let it dry. When certain level of moisture goes down due to many of the common reasons then you have to take special efforts to maintain that moisture. One should keep in mind that excess experiments with your hair can cause problems and lead to dry hair.

Some of the common reason why many face this problem is the excessive washing of your hair. Your hair need not be washed daily as this washes out the nutrients from your hair leaving you ‘high and dry’. So washing is not an appropriate solution for your hair on a daily basis. Use of hot dryers, hot curlers or any of the things you use for stylizing your hair also leads to drying. Swimming in chlorinated water without a head cap makes your hair parched and even drier. By using some of the home based recipes you can make your hair last longer with a better look.

The use of mild shampoo is one of the initial steps to be taken when you are treating dry hair. Look for shampoos mentioned as ‘dry and damaged’ which would work in your favor. The use of conditioner is a must as this helps in preserving the lost nutrients and oil in your hair. This would give a beautiful look to your hair with the extra shine and bounce. A ‘moisturized’ hair will make natural asian black hair stand out more as light reflected on shiny black asian hair will look even more healthier. Snipping off the end of your hair would help in preventing further damage to your hair. Exposure to sun can also cause dryness. You can use hair sunscreen to protect your hair.

Use of some of the home made ingredients if properly blended can be very helpful. Some of the weirdest stuff can actually work for your hair, if you are brave enough you can try these out. Beer seems to work wonders on all kinds of hair, be it asian hair or not. You can spray your hair with beer once you have shampooed your hair. Mayonnaise is also a wonderful ingredient which brings life back to your hair as it is termed as an excellent conditioner. If you use mayonnaise, be sure to rinse it off after leaving it on for about 15 minutes, you will not want to walk around smelling like mayonnaise!

10 Tips To Improved Hair Care | Asian Hair

Hair care is an important part of looking good and feeling good, both inside and out. There are an endless number of asian and non-asian hair care products that promise to shape up, curl, straighten, moisturize and rejuvenate, but what is the best way to maintain healthy hair? Here are 10 tips to get you started.

1. If you notice split ends, have them trimmed. This will result in healthier hair and a better overall appearance. A trim is relatively inexpensive and should only take a matter of minutes at the local salon.

2. Use a low to medium heat on your hair dryer. Extreme heat can dry out the hair and cause the frizzies.

3. Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun, which is not only bad for your skin, but can dry out your hair as well.

4. Many people suffer from dandruff. If you are one of the many, avoid scratching or rubbing the head as this will promote flaking. Instead, use a shampoo and/or conditioner that is especially designed to treat dandruff and eliminate flaking.

5. If you have thin hair, add a volumizing shampoo for added body. If you have thick hair, using a healthy shine shampoo will bring out the additional beauty.

6. Avoid harsh hair care products, which can dry out or damage the hair. In some cases, individuals have even experienced hair loss in using certain at-home perm and/or coloring treatment products. Some DIY asian hair dye might be drying and damaging to the hair. If you want to have this type of treatment done, have it done at the salon.

7. In choosing a salon, make sure that you opt for one that has been in business for awhile and has a clean, professional workspace.

8. Ask friends for referrals. If they have used a certain hair care product great for asian hair, which coincides with one that you are searching for, inquire about their experience. The same is true with salons, which are often best recommended by friends and family.

9. When brushing your hair, use soft strokes rather than those swiped in a hurry. A part of quality hair care is, just as the name implies, caring for your hair.

10. When using styling products, make sure that they do not overheat prior to using them on your hair. Extreme heat can and will damage the hair, not to mention the discomfort of a burn resulting from an overheated styling product.

Anyone who notices a concerning condition, relating to their hair, should consult a dermatologist for proper diagnosis and/or treatment.

Nice First Date Hairstyles For Women | Asian Hair

The first date is probably the most important date for many women, so it’s absolutely essential that your hair is perfect. You want to make an impression, but you don’t want to look like you’re trying too hard; you want a nice looking asian hair style, but not too boring, you want to look sexy, but not tarty; you want a cute hairstyle, but one that’s not too bubbly; you want to look casual and down to earth, but not lazy and disinterested.

To make things easier for women out there, I’ve gone through our hairstyle database with one of our experts and we’ve chosen 2 perfect first date hairstyles each for short hairstyles, medium hairstyles and long hairstyles. If you’ve completed our hairstyle consultation and learnt about how hairstyles suit your face shape, try on some of these first date hairstyles and see what you think.

First Date Hairstyles for Short Hair

Revamped Classic Bob Haircut

This is a great hairstyle for women with oval, oblong, square or diamond face shapes and medium to thick straight or wavy hair. It’s a perfect first date hairstyle because it sits nicely without too much effort. The side-swept bangs draw attention to the eyes (they’ll draw your man in), and the layers through the top create a nice sexy texture that, combined with the flicked-out ends, is fun, casual and cute.

Subtle Contrast

Most women like to feel like they’ve got their finger on the pulse- that they may not be leading fashion trends, but they’re in fashion nevertheless. That’s exactly the impression you want to give on your first date: that you’re in fashion. If you agree, and you have thin to medium and medium density hair, then this hairstyle’s for you. The layers create volume and shape, but it’s the subtle contrast in hair color that’s the real winner. The splashes of color are noticeable, but not over the top. This hairstyle says modestly to your first date: “I’m trendy and fashionable and a little daring, but it’s no big deal.” This looks quite similar to asian hair style and thus will look great on asians.

First Date Hairstyles for Medium Hair

Waves that Work

Our model’s waves would work for any occasion: the office, staying at home and relaxing, or an important first date. Her hair’s got graduated layers cut from the top to the ends to give this style a fuller wave all over, and jagged-cut bangs swept to one side to soften the face. This hairstyle has the sexiness and volume of a wavy hairstyle, but its length and styling and the fact that a curling iron has been used to make it look natural, make it another perfect example of a striking, yet understated, first date hairstyle for all women.

Shoulder Length and Pinned Back

This hairstyle definitely looks like it’s been styled and maintained. The layers through the back and sides have been set in rollers and the hair’s been teased and pieced with molding cream. Each of these elements shows our model as someone who makes an effort and knows what suits her- especially since the volume through the sides complements her longer face shape. Yet pinning the bangs back prevents the hairstyle from looking too styled and our model from appearing too self conscious. This hairstyle paints a perfect picture of the kind of woman we all want to be on a first date: sassy, fun, stylish and sophisticated- yet down to earth.

First Date Hairstyles for Long Hair

Smooth and Wispy Hair

This model’s smooth and shiny hair style is sleek and sophisticated without looking over-the-top neat, tidy and professional. You don’t want your first date to think you’re a career obsessed office dominatrix, and this hairstyle will certainly give all women some professional credibility without pushing them over the edge. The secret’s the wispy ends; the style is full, smooth and shiny from the roots to the mid-lengths, but the ends are wispy and fun suggesting that the wearer has a light-hearted and flirty side to her personality. (Check out our gallery of other office hairstyles for women).

Effortless Updo Hair

There’s nothing quite as attractive as the effortless sophistication suggested by a loose updo like this one. Updos are the ideal first date hairstyles for women because they combine “sexy” and “casual” in a perfect blend- ask any guy. Our model’s example also contains an appealing cute element, making it an even better choice for a first date. Although an updo like this one looks casual, allow plenty of styling time for things such as roller setting and pinning.

These hairstyles for short, medium, long hair and asian hair are all examples of what we think would make perfect first date hairstyles because they all contain an ideal combination of things like sexiness, sophistication, sassiness and casualness. Remember too, although these are hairstyles for women we think would work, it’s most important that you’re comfortable with yourself on any first date. So to all the women out there: try a few of these on, experiment, and see how you feel. Good luck!
