Curly Qs: Split Ends
By Sandra Mariscal | 04/08/2009 - 14:15

How many times does your hairstylist remind you to get your ends trimmed? I know mine tells me all the time, but that can be hard when a girl’s trying to grow out her hair. There are several reasons we get dry, split ends. It’s mainly due to heat damage from your straightening iron or blow dryer and chemical damage from dyeing, but the environment can also play a role. Last week, I met Rod Horton, a Mizani Stylist who told me about another reason our ends become ravaged.

Curly Qs: Hair Loss Scare
By Sandra Mariscal | 04/01/2009 - 13:15

Do you ever get scared of how much hair you lose daily or when you detangle? I always cringe when I see fallen curls on my clothes and the load of hair left on my comb after I untangle. I’ve asked several hairstylists what gives and luckily, they’ve all agreed on the reason. It’s common for those who don’t brush their hair daily (like most of us girls with curly hair) to notice more hair on clothes, the floor of your bathroom and everywhere else but the hair brush.

Curly Qs: Straightening Success
By Sandra Mariscal | 03/18/2009 - 11:00

I rarely straighten my hair. Last time I remember trying to use a straightening iron, I was in high school and back then you had to dry your hair before ironing it. That meant either blow-drying first, or detangling my curls while dry instead of in the shower with conditioner, which is painful and causes breakage since you’re pulling on dry locks. I never tried an iron again until recently, now that there are ones you can use on damp hair. I tried Remington Wet2Straight 2” Flat Iron (available at Target in May for $35), but there are several others you can choose from.
