Suave Dry Shampoo | Hairstyle Tips

October 17, 2011

Two months ago a friend of mine introduced me to the idea of dry shampoo. I guess I have seen it around for awhile, but literally thought to myself, “C’mon, a dry shampoo? How useful can that be?”

On this occasion, I saw how it was used and we were hooked from then on!

With that recommendation, and with a limited budget, I went to WalMart and purchased several bottles of Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo for about USD$2.50.

Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo

Most girls have learned that washing the hair everyday can be high maintenance and may actually cause damage by stripping the hair of its natural oils. If you do not wash it often enough, however, the hairline and parts {areas next to the scalp} start to get oily, leaving an unsightly greasy look and feel.

We wash our hair every other day, sometimes skipping two days. How regular you wash your hair is really up to you, as everyone is different. {We do find, however, that not washing the hair daily can actually help in styling as a little bit of natural buildup and left-over hairspray/gel gives the hair more “grip”.} So, what can you do on those in-between days when the hair starts to look a little greasy? Try a dry shampoo to revive it!

Suave’s Dry Shampoo contains a mineral clay that helps absorb excess oils secreted from the skin glands next to the hair follicles. Notice I did not say that it  eliminates the oils 100%, as natural oils are good for the hair – it just helps remove the excess. After spraying along the hairline, 10-12 inches from the hair, gently rub the powder in with the palm of your hand or fingertips and style as desired. It also has a citrus/grapefruit smell that is very nice.

You can read more about ingredients and product usage from the Suave website, and can see the professional Suave Stylists use the product. If you cannot find this in stores near you, those of you in the US can buy it online from Amazon.com.

The tutorial below shows how we use Suave Professional’s Dry Shampoo on those off-wash days. I include before and after shots of our actual results, although please recognize that with different hair types, your results may not be exactly like ours.

So if you are looking for a way to revive your hair on those in-between wash days, give Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo a try! If your results are as good as mine, you will not be able to live without it!

Happy Hairdoing!

Hairstyle Tips | Zig-Zag Part

November 16, 2010

I have shown pictures on how to do a zig-zag part before, but some of our younger viewers have asked for a video tutorial so they can see exactly how it is done.

There are many parting styles that I will show in coming months, but aside from a straight part… this is the one I use second most in my hairstyles.

Zig Zag Part
I truly apologize for the lighting in the video tutorial! I really am not orange in color! (We are looking to replace the lighting in our bathroom so that we can continue filming on weekday mornings and not only on weekends when the window light is better.)

This tutorial was filmed just after 5:30am, with no outside window light, as that is when we get up to get ready for school. Yes, it is early, but with five children to get ready (4 girl heads of hair), three kids practicing the piano, family breakfast and scripture study… it is the only way to get the kids out the door to the bus stop by 7:10am!

Items Needed: Water spray bottle (it is easier to part the hair when damp or wet), rat-tail comb.

Time Requirement: 2 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Happy Hairdoing!

Mailbag Q & A: Hair Parts

March 05, 2009


A few days ago I had an interesting question come into my comments. Here it is…

Q: “OK, I just have to ask: Do you always begin by ‘part on the left’ because that’s her natural part, or does that actually matter? If people part my hair on the left it drives me straight up a wall because my natural part is on the right…”

A: I thought this was so funny because I had never really thought about my statement being confusing! But just to clarify! The side DOES NOT matter. I just naturally part their hair on the left. Mostly I just add that step in to be thorough. So part the hairdo’s on either side! Sorry if it was confusing!

Happy Hairdoing!

Tips & Tricks #6: How to do a Zig-Zag Part

October 13, 2008

There are many ways to do a zig-zag part, but this is my personal favorite…

Items Needed: Spray bottle and rat-tail comb.

Time Requirement: 2 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Begin with damp hair…

Begin by pulling comb through hair directly to right about 1-1.5 inches. Separate the hair to create a part…

Pick a spot that looks good and pull through hair directly to left…

Pull back through hair to right. Then again to the right…

This creates a lightning bolt looking zig-zag part…

I usually just stop the part at this point. If I need to section the hair in half, I do a straight part from here down. I simply think it looks cleaner… but that’s just my opinion.

Happy Hairdoing!
