Maintaining Beautiful Hair As You Get Older

Maintaining Beautiful Hair As You Get Older

Maintaining beautiful hair as we age is a very common issue for many women. Due to hormones and other factors, hair does natural thin over the decades. So how can you minimise the effects of ageing on your hair? If you are finding that your hair is quite dry or frizzy, or perhaps you have more hair in the drain each and every time that you have a shower. When we age, our hair does too, and aging hair can be a real pain. So knowing how to take care of it all is really important. A few simple tips…

Great Hair Stylists, and How To Find Them

Great Hair Stylists, and How To Find Them

Great hair stylists have common factors that ensure they attract and keep customers. However, finding them is another issue. So how can you find the perfect hairdresser for you? Why is it that men seem to easily find great hair stylists? Most men seem to have it easy when it comes to salon life (a small trim or buzz cut will be appropriate for the majority of customers). However, for women, visiting a hair salon is often quite a prolonged affair especially for someone who nurses long or unruly hair. We need our hair washed, trimmed, cut, styled, treated, coloured,…

Evox Hair Rejuvenation Therapy, It’s Brand New

Evox Hair Rejuvenation Therapy, It’s Brand New

Evox Hair Rejuvenation Therapy is totally new and very different so I was intrigued – anything that involves hair and cryogenic chambers is intriguing – but also my usual skeptical self. Why am I so skeptical? Well, I have fine hair that needs lots of moisture. I have a lot of hair but it’s fine, coloured and prone to dryness and frizz. I am constantly using new products and my fave for quite a while has been Paul MItchell – in fact, I wrote about it here on Don’t Call Me Penny; best moisturising hair care products ever. So I…

Laura Ciccone : Hairstyle Queen

Laura Ciccone : Hairstyle Queen

When Laura Ciccone cut off her cousin’s hair.. it wasn’t good. Laura was five and her cousin was three, with flowing long hair. The hair was stuffed into Barbie’s bag and Laura’s cousin was blamed for cutting off her own hair. Ooops. Since then, Laura Ciconne has dramatically increased her hair cutting skills. Originally studying beauty when she left Year 12, it didn’t hold the fascination for Laura that was provided by hairdressing. Her apprenticeship salon, Hair Machine, introduced Laura to fashion and the competitive side of the hair industry – Awards. Moving to Kinky Curly Straight as a qualified…

Best Hair Products I’ve Tried : Moisturise and Thicken

Hair & Beauty treatments are an ongoing topic on my 88.9FM Fashion and Home radio show as I am always interested to share the latest trends and products with my listeners. I was recently introduced to some products from Paul Mitchell…and I have to say… they are among the best hair products I have tried. I have been using the moisture-inducing Paul Mitchell Instant Moisture Shampoo and Instant Moisture Conditioner because my hair is coloured and tends to be dry. You do have to be careful that products designed to add moisture don’t also add WEIGHT to fine hair like…
