Hair care is a journey. Pretty profound, yep, I know, but in some manner it is. Many of us - especially me - have been looking for just the right combination of products and appliances to give us the best hair care. Shampoo, conditioners, styling appliances like flat irons, curling irons or curlers, and styling aids have all played a role in giving us the hair style we want.
For me the journey to find the perfect look has been elusive. There's just not much you can do with thin hair and a couple of well-placed and prominent cow-licks. Its just not going to happen. The quest, however, remained active into my twenties until work, girls, and outside activities took the main stage. I simply didn't have the time or interest to work on what seemed to be a hopeless endeavor. I did realize that I could do with what I had and that proper hair care would help me greatly.
Fortunately many of you were born with or have the fundamental tools for great hair. Proper use of styling tools and hair care products result in some really gorgeous hair...I see it every day. What I have come to realize, though, is many folks become experts in styling but don't understand some of the basic biology of the hair. To do so brings you enlightenment - or at least a bit of useful info. Here we go...let's do the technical stuff first. This will surely impress your friends!
