Make good of bad hair
As enlightened women, we are aware that the role models held up for us are uniformly slim, well made-up, expensively dressed and perfectly coiffed—women without bad hair days at all.
We know too well these standards of effortless perfection are impossible and we accept ourselves as we truly are-unique human beings, not stereotypes; recognizing our strengths as well as our weaknesses. Like dry and damaged hair, which seems to afflict most women, what with years of fatal experimentations. So how are we to make the best of this minor flaw?
“Flaunt it,” seriously says hair guru Tony Galvez whose hands-on experience in hairdressing spans 30 years with his Tony Galvez Hair Salon. “And make the most of this small imperfection.” With the following simple steps, you can live happily ever after with your dry damaged hair until it gets healthy.
§ First, cut it short since a longer length requires you to show off healthy hair, which you don’t have yet. Have it as short as your features will allow from ultra short to jaw length- remembering that a small face and a short neck are best for the shortest length. Now that you’ve gotten rid of most of your damaged hair, you can now begin to grow it healthy, not to mention that short hair is the most practical in a tropical country like ours.
§ Second, style it wash and wear. Tony presents four short styles both for thin and thick hair layered and chipped at the ends that requires no combing, brushing or blow drying, no flat ironing: just towel dry, scrunch with your fingers and off you go!
§ Lastly, nurse back your hair to health by keeping your shampooing to the minimumy required by your lifestyle and using only gentle and mild shampoos; and whenever you could, leave the conditioner, preferably herbal, on the hair for at least 8 hours or until your next shampoo. At least once a month, have a hair treatment like Clinitive Core Aid/Essence Seal Hair Purifying Treatment designed to keep the hair healthier with balance pH, permanently stop breakage and eliminate split ends, soften and make it silky and manageable. Now that you have the know-how, you can now make good of bad hair.
Meanwhile, the Tony Galvez School of Cosmetology will hold a one-day seminar, “Eyelash Extension Grafting” on April 5, 2005 to help practitioners learn the safe and proper technique of this increasingly popular beauty trend.
