Not how often, but how?
So if you’re going to shampoo your hair, you’re far better off doing two small back-to-back half shampoos than one big one. Try it – you’ll feel the difference immediately, and you needn’t use any more shampoo than you normally would.
And please condition. Your hair may feel thicker if you don’t, but your hair will be ‘open’ still, filling with dirt, which defeats the purpose of shampooing in the first place. If you need volume, use a styling product or ask your stylist for professional advice.
In a recent article VOGUE looked at common myths about making your hair grow faster.
However, if you are aiming to grow your hair long cancelling your standing appointment with Locks Hair will be detrimental. If you don’t manage split ends and they are left to decimate your hair, the breakage they cause will travel up the hair leaving it weak all the way along.
VOGUE suggests that when you are trying to grow your hair you should visit your hairdresser (us?) every six to eight weeks because regular trims promote healthier hair. Healthier hair is the basis of getting longer hair and maintaining it.

Marie Claire magazine has run a great story on the history of red lipstick. Beautiful women all through the ages from Cleopatra to Marilyn Monroe have used red lipstick for romance and appeal.
Many celebrities have adopted red lipstick as their signature look, including Gwen Stefani, Taylor Swift and Emma Stone.

Gray hair can look really good if it is stylishly cut and well looked after.
Here are some basic tips for gray hair:
Keeping your hair short in the in-between period as you grow the colour out will lessen the contrast between silver and pigmented strands.
Layers can camouflage multiple hues. We suggest a a choppy cut because it can look youthful and helps hide your roots.
After your grey has grown out, don’t become conservative. Grey looks glamorous and attractive if it is cut in a contemporary style. Currently that would be an above-the-shoulder, layered style.
The lesson is picking the right hairstyle for gray hair—style is important and you can keep looking stylish and attractive.
