Perfect hair is a result of both what is done in the hair salon and the care given to the hair at home. Excellent cut and coloring at the salon and diligent conditioning and styling at home work together to create perfect hair.
According to Oprah, conditioning is the key to beautiful hair. Every woman should condition her hair every time she shampoos, and should use a deep conditioning hair mask weekly. Women who color their hair may want to use a glaze between colorings to help keep color fresh. Avoiding overuse of blow dryers and curling irons helps hair retain moisture. One way to minimize blow drying is to dry only the areas around the part and the front of the hair, letting the rest dry naturally. When styling hair, down looks are enhanced by spraying volumizer at the roots, while updos should be neat and tidy except in the bun itself.
In the salon, adding layers, including by using color-appropriate extensions, can help create a perfect look. Women should protect their hair by only having one chemical process at a time. Blonde hair in particular can look dull and flat after coloring, so care should be taken to add warmer lowlights and shine while coloring. Haircuts should be kept fresh, with long hair trimmed every three months and short hair and bangs more frequently.
