Get Some Fresh Hair

November 30th, 2011


It all begins with the basics.

imageHair is one asset that keeps us looking young. Thankfully, it doesn't wrinkle and only crinkles when we want it to create a wave. True it turns gray, but that is a whole other topic. For now, let's just stick with the basics.

The experts will agree the secret to beautiful, sexy healthy hair is its upkeep. This mission is easy to achieve with the right tips and products.

Patrick Melville, Aveeno's Hair Consultant, recently shared with me, "Hair that shines, moves and has volume makes all the difference between so-so hair and 'wow' hair. It's all about maintaining the hair. Be sure to visit your stylist every 8-10 weeks for a fresh trim, deep condition once a week and don't fill your hair with useless products that will leave residue buildup."

That's why Patrick is a fan of the Aveeno line of hair care products. The line was developed with a team of experts, including a leading dermatologist and hair stylist, to achieve the best possible line on the market. It contains ACTIVE NATURALS technology, Nourishing Wheat Complex, which not only targets damaged hair, but also helps to strengthen hair so that hair is less prone to breakage and to resist future damage.

Patrick shared this hair-worthy tip you can incorporate into your daily routine.

"When shampooing, it is important to 'push moisture back into the hair'. Be sure to have your hair very wet then concentrate on the mid-shaft to tips of the hair, because the roots are the newest growth and still vibrant. Hair at the ends need replenishment. Don't be afraid to let the water back into your hair while shampooing to keep the lather fresh."

After meeting Patrick, I went home and did two things, tried Aveeno Shampoo and Conditioner, which definitely gave me volume without weighing my hair down (plus the scent is fabulous). Secondly, added a deep conditioner into the weekly mix.

This mission accomplished and praiseworthy hair achieved.

If your hair looks's going to be a good day.
