  HAIR STYLING TIPS - by Editor
Style your hair with care with these tips:

1. Never use a blow dryer on dry hair.

2. Cut your hair frequently. It is better to trim a minimal amount of hair often, than it is to cut off a whole lot once a year, as your hair stays in healthier condition. 

3. If you want a change of style but want to keep the length, get your hair cut in long layers. This also helps remove spilt ends. 

4. Use rubber bands that are covered with fabric when you want to tie up your hair. This reduces breakage. 

5. Natural bristle brushes are preferable to plastic and polyester bristles. They are gentler on the hair.  Unless your brush has natural bristles, you should never brush wet hair, as wet hair tends to snap easily. 

6. If you blow-dry your hair right, there is no reason why it cannot look as good as salon-blow-dried hair. The trick is to blow-dry your hair in sections. 

7. If you section it well, you should be done after 11 or 12 sections, and it should not take you more than fifteen minutes. However, if you randomly section your hair, it may take a lot longer, so be systematic about it.  Another reason to stick to systematic sections is that you will not be blow-drying hair that is already dry, and in this manner you will reduce damage to your hair. 

8. Stick to making sections with the help of horizontal and vertical partings to your hair, and doing blocks at a time. 

9. Make a horizontal parting two inches above the back of your head. Part the rest of the hair in the center, and pile up each side on top and clip it up, using one clip for each side. 

10. Divide the loose hair into two sections, and blow-dry each section with the help of a round brush. 

11. If your hair is very curly, it helps if your blow dryer has a flat nozzle attachment to better direct air. 

12. Move the blow dryer along the length of your hair along with your brush. 

13. After you have got the bottom done, keep moving upwards in sections, until you have finished all your hair. Simply use horizontal and vertical partings to section your hair.  

14. If you are using a straightening iron to straighten your hair, use it with care, and use it sparingly. It can be very damaging if used often, and if you do not follow up with extra care for the hair. 

15. On the other hand, if you are using a curling iron, don�t place the iron at the ends of your hair. Place it around four inches above the ends, and then feed the ends into the iron. Hair ends are the most fragile part of your hair, and in this manner you reduce the damage to the hair ends as you avoid prolonged high heat exposure. 

16. Wearing a leave-in conditioner at all times keeps the hair moisturized and also helps prevent damage caused by exposure to sunlight.

Comments:   As a child I had very straight hair, upto the age of 22..But after (27 yrs of age) my hair has started developing waves, the wave is so strong on my hair now, that I have to blow dry them when I never used to before. What could I do so as to avoid a hair dryer but still maintain stright hair and what could be the reason for waving. I have moved from India to US since past 3 years. I loved my straight silky hair..and I want them back. Thanks

Comments:   for those of you who want straight hair i've found that an ionic hair dryer works wonders. my hair was usually wavey, even after drying it with a normal hair dryer. with the ionic hair dryer it looks like i had spent an hour straightening my hair when i hadnt, and it dries your hair twice as fast. it doesnt ruin your hair either. also, always use a ceramic straightener. its better for your hair...hope this helps

Comments:   My hair, up until yesterday, was long and curly, I never ever use a hair dryer, I wash and condition, brush it through and put in mousse and scrunch (make sure hair is towel dried first!) then spray with hair spray. Also, to avoid the 'stiff' look, don't go out until its near enough fully dry... Now...I have straight hair...I had the yuko system done, which set me back quite a few hundred but so far so good! I had tried straightening irons (thermal glass I recommend) and blow drying but never could get a proffesional look how I did at the salon...
