Your hair texture might change too from it being soft previously to it being more course. It might also become drier and more brittle, during this time in our lives, the oil glands produce less oil than be...

SECRET HAIR HACK 8: ONLY USE STRAIGHTENERS AND CURLERS ON DRY HAIR

Seems obvious you would think but many people make the mistake of trying to straighten or curl their hair when it’s not completely dry.  Think about it this way; what happens if you drop water into a hot pan?

Excessive heat will cause your hair to dry out, become brittle and break.  This can all be avoided by using a simple heat protector spray.  You can spray a small amount to damp hair before blowdrying or to dry hair before you use your straighteners.&nbs...

SECRET HAIR HACK 3 – CONDITION CORRECTLY

The chances are you are already using conditioner on your hair but in reality, are you using it correctly?  Hair tends to get greasier at the roots so this area doesn’t need as much attention as other parts of your hair.
