When it comes to natural oils used in beauty products, argan oil is among the first to come to mind. It’s a popular ingredient in anti-frizz shampoos and conditioners because it can help smoothen your hair. But aside from that, did you know that argan oil can do more for your hair? No wonder it’s dubbed “liquid gold.”

Let us fill you in on the ways argan oil is good for your crowning glory.

1. It strengthens your hair.

Daily styling and various salon treatments like coloring and bleaching can make your hair brittle and prone to breakage. If you often have your hair dyed, you might want to add products with argan oil into your hair care must-haves because this oil can help restore the strength of your strands. In fact, a 2022 study published in the journal Fashion and Textiles showed that bleached hair got stronger after 21 days of treating it with a conditioner with argan oil. So, make sure to always condition after shampooing, and if your hair conditioner has argan oil, even better!

Editor’s tip: Got hair that breaks easily? Try Cream Silk Ultimate Reborn Hair Fall Defense Tri-Oleo Conditioner. It is infused with three lightweight, nourishing oils such as argan oil, marula oil, and rosehip oil. These help in strengthening, smoothening, and moisturizing your hair. This conditioner also has Break Shield Complex, which helps in strengthening your hair from the roots to the tips. 

2. It helps repair hair damage.

Argan oil can also help bleached hair recover from damage. Because argan oil is made up of small fatty acid molecules, it can fill in the gaps in your hair cuticle more easily. This helps restore your hair’s protein structure and reduce hair damage.

3. It helps retain your hair color.

With the gaps in your hair cuticles filled in and your hair’s protein structure intact, your hair color is less likely to get washed out and fade. And when your hair color gets retained longer, you won’t need to get coloring and bleaching treatments often, minimizing hair damage.

4. It adds shine.

In the same 2022 study published in Fashion and Textiles, the researchers found out that bleached hair treated with an argan oil-infused conditioner became shinier and softer compared with bleached hair that was just shampooed. Bleached hair also became smoother after 21 days of treatment. So, if you notice your hair looking dull and lifeless, maybe a touch of this liquid gold can bring back its shine.

Editor’s tip: Get smoother hair with the help of Love Beauty and Planet Argan Oil & Lavender Smooth and Serene Shampoo. It gently cleanses your hair while calming frizz. And because it comes in a 100% recyclable bottle and is made with ethically sourced and eco-friendly ingredients, it helps you take care of your hair while giving the planet some love! 

There you have it! Now that you know the benefits of argan oil for your hair, you might want to check if this oil is listed among the ingredients of your shampoo and conditioner. Soon, you may be saying hello to stronger, smoother, and shinier hair.

Brassy Hair No More: How to Maintain Blonde and Bleached Hair https://www.allthingshair.com/en-ph/hair-care/hair-treatments/brassy-hair/ https://www.allthingshair.com/en-ph/hair-care/hair-treatments/brassy-hair/#respond Wed, 24 Aug 2022 02:45:17 +0000 https://www.allthingshair.com/en-ph/?p=120848 Bid brassy tones goodbye and preserve your hair color with these tips.

Imagine this: You step out of the salon, perfectly happy with your new platinum blonde hair. You show it off to your friends, take selfies and post on social media, and confidently rock your new ‘do. But after a few weeks, you look in the mirror and see that your once gorgeous, blonde mane has been replaced by brassy hair. How did this happen?

You get brassy hair when warm undertones pop out of your current hair color. It’s common in dark hair that has been bleached to blonde, ash, or any light color. It’s especially true for Asian hair, with its black and brown pigmentation, thicker cuticle layer, and compact cuticle cells.

Because of Asian hair’s characteristics, it takes several rounds of bleaching to lighten it, as you have to get past this thick cuticle layer. When you finally get rid of the dark pigment, you’ll see your hair turning reddish or orange. These are your hair’s warm undertones. To get blonde hair, your hairstylist will then use a toner to counteract this brassiness and get the color you want. However, after a few weeks, the effects of this toner will start to wear off; hence brassy hair.

1. Use purple shampoo.

Let’s talk about colors for a bit. Remember the color wheel your art teacher showed you when you were in elementary school? There, you’ll see that purple and yellow are placed opposite each other on the color wheel. This means that they are complementary colors and they balance each other out.

This is why when you have your hair bleached, it’s recommended that you switch to purple shampoo like TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Blonde Brilliance Shampoo. Its purple formula neutralizes brassy tones as bits of the violet dye get deposited on your hair. The result? Your hair appears ashy instead of brassy.

For best results, complement TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Blonde Brilliance Shampoo with TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Blonde Brilliance Conditioner. Aside from purple formula, both have jojoba oil which moisturizes your hair.

2. Stay away from hot showers.

Hot water opens up your hair cuticles, making your dye fade more quickly. The best way to wash bleached and color-treated hair is to use lukewarm or cool water along with products designed for colored hair. After shampooing and conditioning your hair, rinse off with cool water to close your hair cuticles.

3. Protect your hair from the sun.

The sun’s UV rays are known to damage your hair and cause discoloration and dryness and make your hair fibers weak. When going out, make sure to shield your hair from the sun by wearing a hat or a bandana or by using an umbrella.

4. Pamper your hair with deep conditioning treatments.

Bring back lost moisture to your bleached hair by giving it a moisturizing hair mask treatment at least once a week. This will help your color-treated hair look smooth, shiny, and vibrant.

With these easy tips, you can preserve your blonde and other bleached hair colors and keep your mane from turning brassy. You may need to go the extra mile in the hair care department, but trust us, the effort is worth it, as you can enjoy your hair color for longer.

How to Take Care of Your Hair: Easy Tips for Men https://www.allthingshair.com/en-ph/hair-care/how-to-get-healthy-hair/hair-care-tips-for-men/ https://www.allthingshair.com/en-ph/hair-care/how-to-get-healthy-hair/hair-care-tips-for-men/#respond Fri, 19 Aug 2022 10:00:51 +0000 https://www.allthingshair.com/en-ph/?p=71937 Here are simple tips to help you get clean and healthy-looking hair every day.

When you think of hair care, what comes to mind? Numerous products on your bathroom counter? Expensive haircuts? If you think hair care is complicated, we’re here to tell you the good news: It’s not. Hair care can be simple and easy. You don’t need to spend a lot nor should you get into elaborate routines just to get manageable and healthy-looking hair. Wanna know more? Here are some tips on how to take care of your hair.

1. Keep your hair clean.

As a go-getter, you’re probably always out and about in the bustling, polluted city. All that grime and sweat from a day’s action—especially in a hot and humid country like the Philippines—may lead to grease and dirt buildup on your scalp.

When you’ve been out the whole day, make sure to shower and wash your hair and scalp thoroughly before going to bed. Use a cooling shampoo like Dove Men + Care Refreshing Clean Shampoo. It deeply cleanses your hair and scalp and gets rid of dirt and grease. It also has caffeine to help make your hair stronger and menthol for that presko, post-shower feeling.

2. Fight dandruff.

Men are more prone to dandruff because their scalps produce more oil or sebum. To keep these flakes at bay, try CLEAR Cool Sport Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men. Formulated with Triple Anti-Dandruff Technology, it removes, resists, and prevents dandruff while getting rid of dirt, grime, and grease. It also has mint that leaves your scalp with a cool and fresh sensation.

3. Use lukewarm water.

Watch out when you turn up the heat on your shower—rinsing with overly hot water can make your scalp dry and prone to flaking. Instead, wash your hair with cool or lukewarm water to keep bath time relaxing while going easy on your scalp.

4. Massage your scalp.

A head massage can get you relaxed at the end of a busy day. But aside from that, did you know that it can also help you get fuller-looking hair? This is because massaging your scalp stretches and stimulates the cells that play a role in hair growth. Give yourself at least four minutes of massage regularly to help improve your hair’s thickness.

5. Shield your scalp from the sun.

We all take special care to shield our face and body from UV rays by applying sunscreen. But what have you done for your scalp? This neglected area of your skin needs just as much protection from the sun, so keep your scalp covered to keep it from getting irritated by the sun’s rays. When going out, wear a cap or a hat for that much-needed cover.

6. Get regular trims or haircuts.

Taking care of your hair also means keeping your haircut in good shape. So, make sure you get regular trims to look neat and dapper. They also get rid of dry ends so your hair won’t look dull. And when you can’t visit your barber for a trim, a DIY haircut at home will do the trick.

7. Put your long hair up.

Of course, if you’re digging long or medium-length hair, you’re free to leave it down to showcase its length and thickness. But on windy days, we recommend putting it up so it doesn’t get all tangled. This way, you wouldn’t have to brush your hair vigorously to get rid of knots, minimizing the risk of hair breakage. And besides, there are lots of long hairstyles for men that you can play around with. Why don’t you try a classic and easy-to-do man bun? You can even level it up and go for a samurai bun. It’s the same as putting your hair in a high bun; just wrap a rope hair accessory around your man bun to complete the look.

Editor’s tip: Protect your hair from breakage by using Dove Men + Care Strengthening Shampoo. It has caffeine and Trichazole Actives that help fortify your strands to minimize breakage. This way, your hair grows uninterrupted by hair fall. 

You don’t need a complicated hair care routine to have healthy-looking hair. Just remember these simple hair care tips for men and you won’t need to worry about dandruff, dry scalp, or rough and dry strands whatever the season.

Vitamins for Hair Loss and Where to Get Them https://www.allthingshair.com/en-ph/hair-care/how-to-grow-hair/vitamins-for-hair-loss/ https://www.allthingshair.com/en-ph/hair-care/how-to-grow-hair/vitamins-for-hair-loss/#respond Fri, 19 Aug 2022 06:30:48 +0000 https://www.allthingshair.com/en-ph/?p=120815 Learn more about the nutrients that are responsible for the health of your hair.

Vitamins have a lot of known benefits. They’re good for your eyes, your immune system, and even your bones. But have you heard of vitamins for hair loss? Over the years, several studies have been done to investigate the role of these nutrients in the health of your hair. Although more evidence is needed, it has been found that deficiency in certain vitamins is associated with hair fall or even premature hair whitening.

We’ve listed down vitamins that are commonly associated with hair loss and hair growth. Read on to learn more about their benefits for your crowning glory.

1. Vitamin B7 or Biotin

When we talk about vitamins for hair loss, biotin is among the first nutrients to come to mind. It is known to help in treating hair loss and even address some skin issues. You can get biotin from egg yolks, cereals, beef liver, and vegetables like broccoli, spinach, and sweet potatoes.

Editor’s tip: Your hair can also get biotin from the new and improved Sunsilk Strong & Long Shampoo. It has Activ-Infusion, a new formula that consists of oils, vitamins, and proteins that help strengthen and smoothen hair. Aside from biotin, this shampoo also has castor oil which is known to strengthen hair and promote hair growth. It also has aloe vera for added hair nourishment. 

2. Folate

Aside from being good for fetal development, folate or vitamin B9 helps your body produce healthy red blood cells. Folate also stimulates the growth of cells in the hair follicle and helps in preventing hair loss and hair graying. To make sure you get enough folate, include beans, grains, eggs, spinach, asparagus, and other dark green leafy vegetables in your diet.

3. Niacin

Also known as vitamin B3, niacin aids in blood circulation to nourish your scalp and hair follicles. It also stimulates hair growth and helps prevent cholesterol buildup on the scalp which can lead to hair loss. Foods that are rich in niacin include legumes, peanuts, meat, green leafy vegetables, milk, and whole wheat grains. Make sure to include these in your diet.

Editor’s tip: Get smooth and fragrant hair with Sunsilk Smooth & Manageable Shampoo. It has vitamin B3 and collagen to help make your hair healthier. It also has flower oils that give your hair a sweet scent and make your strands moisturized and smooth.

4. Vitamin D

It’s not just good for your bones. Vitamin D also helps regulate the hair growth cycle. Lack of vitamin D is associated with telogen effluvium or a form of temporary hair loss that usually lasts for six months and female pattern hair loss or the thinning of hair at the crown.

Get your daily dose of vitamin D from egg yolk, full-fat dairy, certain types of mushrooms, and fatty fish like salmon, sardines, and mackerel. And of course, don’t forget to soak in some morning sunshine.

5. Vitamin C

Here’s another reason to eat citrus fruits! Vitamin C promotes hair growth and helps in giving your scalp good blood circulation. This vitamin is also a potent antioxidantmeaning, it helps fight hair follicle damage.

6. Vitamin A

You may know vitamin A as pampalinaw ng mata, but did you know that it’s also good for your hair? Like Vitamin D, it helps regulate the hair growth cycle. Aside from that, vitamin A also helps keep hair from getting brittle. However, too much of this fat-soluble vitamin may cause hair loss because it gets stored in the liver and the body may see this as an autoimmune dysfunction.

If you’re looking for sources of vitamin A, turn to yellow and orange fruits and vegetables like papaya, pumpkin, and pear. You can also get it from eggs and milk.

7. Vitamin E

Another known antioxidant, vitamin E protects your hair follicles from free radical damage. It also helps supply oxygen to your hair follicles to promote healthy hair growth. Get this vitamin from vegetable oil, peanuts, almonds, asparagus, avocado, and spinach.

Indeed, a well-balanced diet is good not only for your body but also for your hair. Make it a part of your good hair habits along with a nourishing hair care routine, and your tresses will thank you.

What is Dandruff? A Guide on How to Get a Healthy Scalp https://www.allthingshair.com/en-ph/hair-care/dandruff/healthy-scalp/ https://www.allthingshair.com/en-ph/hair-care/dandruff/healthy-scalp/#respond Tue, 16 Aug 2022 10:00:44 +0000 https://www.allthingshair.com/en-ph/?p=69689 Read on to understand the science behind one of the most common scalp concerns.

The post What is Dandruff? A Guide on How to Get a Healthy Scalp appeared first on All Things Hair Philippines.

]]>
Have you been seeing white flakes on your hair, scalp, or even on your shirt? Is your scalp itchy, too? These are symptoms of dandruff. This scalp condition is pretty common, but its exact cause remains to be pinpointed. However, various studies have been conducted to shed light on the factors that are associated with this condition. All these aim to help us answer these questions: What is dandruff? And how do you treat it?

Dandruff is a skin condition that’s often characterized by white flakes and scalp itching. Contrary to popular belief, it isn’t caused by skipping a shower or two. It’s not about one’s personal hygiene. Instead, dandruff is often associated with the overgrowth of a fungus called Malassezia on one’s scalp. Everyone has this on his or her scalp, and when you have a healthy scalp (just like with the rest of your skin), you have a barrier that protects your scalp and keeps it well-moisturized and hydrated.

When this barrier gets disrupted because of stress, illness, diet, temperature changes, low humidity, and the use of harsh hair products, your scalp gets dry and damaged. This manifests itself as white flakes that you see on your head and on your shoulders. Without this barrier, your scalp also becomes susceptible to different micro-organisms, therefore causing dandruff.

Using an anti-dandruff shampoo can help you put a stop to all the flaking and itching. Peter Bailey, Unilever’s research and development manager, explains, “The key ingredients that anti-dandruff shampoos contain is either an antifungal agent or a keratolytic agent. Anti-fungal agents attack the micro-organisms on the scalp that we believe are a primary cause of dandruff… [while] the most common keratolytic is salicylic acid, which essentially breaks up clumps of dry skin.  In other words, while antifungals treat the underlying cause of dandruff, keratolytics address the symptoms.  Often the two types of agents can be combined into a dual action type formulation.”

When buying an anti-dandruff shampoo, you may find the antifungal agent piroctone olamine, commonly known as Octopirox, listed among the ingredients. It works deep in the scalp to keep flakes away by inhibiting the growth of fungi. You may also find zinc pyrithione, another common antifungal agent used in anti-dandruff shampoos.

Bailey also adds that you can use an anti-dandruff shampoo even if you don’t experience flaking and itching. As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure. “Using an anti-dandruff shampoo even when you don’t have dandruff can help prevent dandruff from occurring by removing Malassezia from the scalp.  However, many people who don’t have dandruff today may never get dandruff due to their individual scalp skin physiology,” he says. It all depends on how strong or weak your scalp barrier is and if you are exposed to different factors that may alter the condition of your scalp.

Thinking of using an anti-dandruff shampoo? Try CLEAR Cool Sport Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men. Formulated with Triple Anti-Dandruff Technology, it removes, resists, and prevents dandruff. This shampoo also washes away dirt, grime, and grease. It even leaves a fresh, presko feeling on your scalp, thanks to its cooling mint.

1. Wash your hair after sweating.

Did you just finish working out? Head to the shower to cleanse not only your body but also your hair and scalp. This way, dirt and grime won’t build up on your scalp and clog your pores.

2. Minimize the use of heavy hairstyling products.

Speaking of buildup on your scalp, did you know that residue from your hair gel, hair wax, and pomade can also clog up your pores? We’re not saying that you stop using these products. Just refrain from using them all the time. If you need them for everyday styling, though, just scoop a small amount and add little by little until you get the hairstyle you want. And don’t forget to wash your hair at the end of the day.

3. Maintain a healthy diet.

What you eat also affects your hair and scalp. Vitamin B-rich foods like bananas, tuna, avocado, and legumes can help minimize scalp flaking or crusting. Your scalp will also benefit from omega-3 fatty acids because they help in moisturizing the skin, including your scalp. When your scalp is well-moisturized, it’s less likely to get flaky. Foods that are rich in omega-3 include fatty fish like salmon and mackerel, as well as nuts and seeds like walnuts, chia seeds, and flaxseeds.

4. Stay hydrated.

It turns out that drinking eight glasses of water a day is also good for your scalp. This simple habit can help keep your scalp from drying out and flaking, so don’t forget to give yourself water breaks even if you’re busy.

Taking care of your hair involves taking care of your scalp. Now that you know the science behind dandruff and how to treat and prevent it, you probably won’t be scratching your head anytime soon.

This easy hairstyle for long hair keeps your hair in place, so if you don’t want strands hitting your face as you go about your busy day, this is a good choice. To create a side braid, just gather your hair on one side and divide it into three sections. Cross either the right section over the middle section. Then, cross the left section over the new middle section. Keep going until you reach the tips of your hair, and tie your braid with a hair tie or elastic.

4. Twin Braids

Editor’s tip: Keep your long hair smooth and sleek with Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Straight Ultra Conditioner. It gives your hair the benefits of three keratin products in one wash.

14. Long Waves

Speaking of hair rollers, why don’t you use some to create chic waves? To do it, take a section of hair at the crown of your head and wrap it outwards around a hair roller. Secure it with an alligator clip. Then, take a section of hair on one side of your head. Wrap it around a hair roller, too, but this time, do it inwards. Don’t forget to clip it. Do this to all sections of your hair on the sides and at the back. When you’re done, blow-dry your hair for a few minutes to set the shape of your curls. Remove the clips and rollers, finger-comb your hair to loosen your curls, and say hello to gorgeous waves!

Hair Whitening Causes and How to Deal With Them https://www.allthingshair.com/en-ph/hair-care/how-to-get-healthy-hair/white-hair-causes/ https://www.allthingshair.com/en-ph/hair-care/how-to-get-healthy-hair/white-hair-causes/#respond Wed, 10 Aug 2022 11:00:31 +0000 https://www.allthingshair.com/en-ph/?p=74024 Have you been seeing white or gray strands popping out? Here are the possible causes of premature hair whitening.

The post Hair Whitening Causes and How to Deal With Them appeared first on All Things Hair Philippines.

What causes white hair? Contrary to popular belief, it isn’t just a sign of aging. You may get it even when you’re in your early 20s—it’s called premature hair whitening—but it’s nothing to panic about. Premature hair whitening is common. And the good news? It is preventable. 

But before we delve into the how, let’s get into the why first. If you think it’s because you slept with your hair still wet, it’s most likely not. In fact, we don’t need centuries-old superstition to explain this phenomenon because hair whitening causes are pretty straightforward. 

Read on as we list them down along with what you can do to prevent having white hair.

1. Genetics

Genetics is a major contributor to premature hair whitening. If one or both of your parents started to have white hair in their 20s or 30s, chances are, you’ll experience the same, too. This is the simplest and most basic of all white hair causes. If this is the cause, it may be difficult for you to prevent white hair from popping up. You can, however, cover it with a lightweight, temporary hair color spray like TRESemmé Root Touch-Up Spray (Black Color). It conceals gray strands and roots in seconds. Just blend it lightly into your hair after spraying, let it dry for a minute, and you’re good to go! 

2. Vitamin Deficiency

Vitamins will help keep your hair’s color, along with its smoothness and softness.

Our hair and skin color come from melanocytes: cells that give tone to our skin. When these cells produce less pigment or melanin, your hair may turn gray or white. Vitamin B12, vitamin B5, vitamin D, and biotin are major contributors to healthy melanin production. Once the hair gets deprived of these nutrients, your melanin levels fall, diminishing your hair’s glow and pigmentation. It may be understated, but this is one of the top white hair causes. 

3. Stress

Ever heard anybody say, “Don’t stress yourself too much—you’ll get gray hair”? Although more evidence is needed, stress is associated with hair graying, as explained in a 2020 study in the journal Nature. Here, the researchers found that under stressful situations, signals from the sympathetic nervous system—which is responsible for one’s “fight or flight” response—in mice led to a depletion in melanocyte stem cells in the hair follicle. Hence, the premature hair graying. 

4. Lifestyle Factors

In a study published in the Journal of Kerman University of Medical Sciences, it was found that those who drink alcohol a lot are more prone to premature hair graying. Although more research is needed to prove this, you might want to go easy on those rounds of drinks the next time you’re out with your friends. Smoking is also correlated with premature hair graying, so it’s better to quit this habit, too.

5. Health Issues and Hormones

White hair could be a sign of an underlying health concern—a symptom of an autoimmune disease, thyroid levels, allergies, or a side effect of medical treatment. It can also be a sign of hormonal imbalance.

1. Stock up on multivitamins!

Make sure your body gets enough vitamins by taking multivitamins and keeping a healthy diet. Foods that are rich in vitamins B5 and B12 include beef, chicken, mushrooms, and potatoes. Meanwhile, fatty fish like salmon and mackerel are rich in vitamin D, as well as egg yolks. For biotin, you can get it from nuts, avocadoes, sweet potatoes, and salmon as well. 

Editor’s tip: Did you know that biotin can also help treat hair loss? Get this vitamin from Sunsilk Strong & Long Shampoo, which has the new Activ-Infusion that consists of oils, vitamins, and proteins that protect hair from factors that can make it rough, weak, and less manageable. Aside from biotin, this shampoo has castor oil which is known to promote hair growth, and aloe vera for added hair nourishment. 

2. Destress.

Try meditating or doing yoga to help you relax. Who knows? Yoga might even help you with hair growth! Also, get a good night’s sleep so your body can recover from a tiring and stressful day. 

3. Protect your hair from the sun.

White hair strands are more vulnerable to damage caused by the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. When going out in the daytime, wear a hat or a bandana to shield your hair from the sun’s rays. You can also use an umbrella. 

4. Consult a doctor.

If your premature hair whitening comes with other troubling symptoms, it’s best to schedule an appointment with your health care provider. He or she can give you the best advice on how to deal with your symptoms. 

Now that you know the common hair whitening causes, you can check if one of these is the reason behind your gray hair. You now know the possible solutions. However, if you’re pretty comfortable rocking your grays, you don’t need to cover them up with dyes. You can transition to stylish gray hair looks and embrace your new ‘do!

Here's how.

Thanks to the availability of flat irons, hair straightening has become so easy and so accessible. The process is also pretty much as straight to the point as it gets, but it’s important to know the best way of going about it. This way, you can prevent damage due to the use of a flat iron and other heated styling devices.

Not all flat irons are created equal, though. There are different sizes, and each one works best for a specific hair type. Choose the right size so you can straighten your hair more efficiently.

Got your flat iron ready? Here’s how to straighten hair at home.

1
Step 1

Prep your hair.

First things first, give your hair a nourishing wash using a shampoo and a conditioner that can help moisturize your strands. After that, pat dry until your hair is half damp. Then, apply hair serum or leave-on cream for additional moisture. Pat dry once again and use a wide-tooth comb to detangle your tresses, making it easier to straighten your hair.

To keep your hair smooth, we recommend using TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Shampoo. It has KERA10 Protein Complex, which penetrates your hair up to 10 layers deep for nourishment. Aside from making your hair smooth, it calms frizz, makes your hair soft and shiny, tames flyaways, provides heat protection, and strengthens your hair—just a few of the 10 salon benefits you can get from it in one wash!

Don’t forget to follow it with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Serum Conditioner. Aside from KERA10 Protein Complex, this conditioner also has oleo serum which is known to deeply moisturize and nourish hair.

Step 2

Blow-dry while combing.

One easy method of straightening your hair is by using a hairdryer. Using a small brush or comb, gently brush small portions of your hair and blow-dry as you comb your way through the section of the hair. Simply repeat this process all over your hair.

Step 3

Bring out your flat iron.

Clip around 60 percent of your hair. Then, use your flat iron to straighten one small section at a time.

Step 4

Iron the rest

Repeat the process until you’ve straightened the rest of your hair. Apply hair serum to your hair for added shine.

Looking for a hair serum to add to your styling essentials? We recommend TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Anti-Frizz Shine Serum. It has keratin and marula oil, and these help in calming frizz, detangling knots, adding shine, making your hair soft, and taming flyaways.

Step 5

Success!

Feel free to experiment with straight hair looks when you want a break from your natural curls. Straightening your hair may be a basic hairstyling trick, but it can give your look a revamp right in your own home. Cool, right?

There are days when you want to leave your hair down but don’t want it getting on your face. The solution? Half-up, half-down hairstyles. As the name implies, a portion of your hair is put up, while the rest is left cascading down your back. They’re great hairstyle options when you want your hair pulled back without putting it in tight braids or buns.

Half updos can work well on any hair length, and the style options range from casual and simple to glamorous and elegant. There’s a half updo for any occasion, and we’ve rounded them up for you to give you loads of inspiration.

1. Half Ponytail

This quirky and fun hairstyle will definitely paint a smile on your face on a gloomy day. When you tie the upper half of your hair on top of your head, try using two hair ties to make your half ponytail higher and perkier.

Editor’s tip: Tight hairstyles can make your hair prone to breakage, so keep it strong with an anti-hair fall conditioner like Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Hair Fall Defiance Ultra Conditioner. It has revolutionary fiber actives that penetrate up to a cellular level to fortify your strands and prevent breakage. 

2. Braided Half-Up, Half-Down Hairstyle

Instead of tying your hair, why don’t you braid it? This is great for dressy, daytime occasions like birthday lunches, coffee or picnic dates, or even simple garden weddings.

3. Half-Up, Half-Down Hairstyle With Bun

It’s elegant with a romantic touch. To create a half updo with bun, gather the upper half section of your hair at the back of your head. Tie it, but don’t pull your hair all the way through to form a bun. Braid the untied portion of your supposed half ponytail, then wrap it around the base of your bun. Secure with hair pins, and you’re done! You can also curl the tips of your hair to give it movement.

Editor’s tip: Keep your hair soft and smooth so it’s easy to style. Wash it with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Shampoo, which is formulated with KERA10 Protein Complex that can penetrate your hair up to 10 layers. Aside from making your hair soft and smooth, it also calms frizz, detangles knots, provides heat protection, and helps in strengthening your hair. 

4. Half-Up Boho Braid

A bohemian hairstyle like the half-up boho braid makes for a pretty but laidback-looking ‘do. It’s also easy to do. Just create a Dutch braid from your right temple up to the back of your head, and another one on the other side. Secure each braid with bobby pins once they read the back of your head. Gently pull the sides of the Dutch braids to make them thicker and spritz hairspray all over your hair to keep the braids in place. 

5. Half Updo With Wispy Bangs

Elevate a simple half updo by pairing it with wispy bangs. This fringed hairstyle is also flattering for a heart-shaped face, as it helps in softening your facial features and achieving a balanced face shape.

Editor’s tip: Got dry and frizzy hair? Try Dove Straight & Silky Keratin Tri-Silk Serum Shampoo. It has the combined power of keratin, fiber actives, and serum ingredients to instantly repair damage, deeply nourish and protect your hair, and leave it extra beautiful. It also has Amino Essence which boosts the health of your hair and nourished up to the core of your hair fibers. 

6. Twisted Half Updo With Bobby Pins

Don’t like braids? Go for twists! Create one on each side and secure them at the back of your head with metallic bobby pins to keep your hairstyle from looking plain. You can also curl your hair before creating the twists for volume and bounce.

7. Half-Up Fishtail Braid

Yes, short hair braids exist, and this is one of them. A fishtail braid may look intricate, but trust us, it’s easy to do. First, tie your hair into a half ponytail at the back of your head. Divide this ponytail into left and right sections. Then, take a small section of hair from the outer side of the ponytail’s left part. Do the same on your ponytail’s right section. Repeat this process until you reach the tips of your hair. Secure your fishtail braid with an elastic.

8. Half-Up Top Knot
