Do you want layered #Hair without the salon sky-high prices? Of course you do! Turn your head upside down in front of you and brush your hair thoroughly. Grab the hair between your index and middle fingers, and start cutting using your fingers as a guide to keep steady. When you turn your head right side up again, it'll be layered! If you want deeper layers, just cut more length at the bottom. Also cut the hair holding your scissors in an upwards direction, moving to the side. This helps disguise mistakes. That's how the salons do it, darling! If you cut straight across, your hair will be choppy and uneven, if your hand isn't steady..
No heat - Secret to strong healthy hair
Everybody knows this. But they don't want to listen. Don't use heat! Would you use an iron to smooth out wrinkles on your face? No silly, because your face will get burned! So why use a straightener, curler, twister, or whatever they're calling it these days, on one of the most delicate part of your body, your hair? If you have burned your hair to a crisp, nothing, I repeat nothing will restore it to its former glory. The only thing you can do is to shave all of your head and let healthy hair grow again!
Avoiding and dealing with split ends
Don't use heat. Read above. Another thing you can do is to avoid brushing your hair when it's wet. Wet hair gets 'pulled' so the hair strands snag on the hairbrush bristles. You can't buy any 'magic cream' and that will join split ends. You have to cut it off. You can do it yourself. Quite therapeutic if you're OCD.
Don't use fancy experimental shampoo.
If you have curly hair, a shampoo that says it'll turn it straight will not work! You can only use heat to change the texture of your hair, which we've already established is dangerous! Shampoo is only meant to clean the grease from your hair, not restructure it. So stop buying into the expensive shampoo ideas. Hair only seems less frizzy because the grease in the shampoo is weighing it down, hence flat hair. Pantene Classic Pro-V is by far the best shampoo for all hair types. It doesn't weigh hair down at all. Kudos Pantene.
