Hello Facebook

by Jill Radabaugh on June 17, 2010

Today I am introducing Hair and Makeup By Jill, to facebook.  My goal is to share beauty tips, beginning with outer beauty, which soaks in to enhance our inner beauty.

This week’s focus has been to be gentle and kind to yourself.  To get caught up, read the first two posts on www.makeupandhairbyjill.com

Today’s beauty tip:

Treat your hair as if it were a delicate, fine linen.  Hair is the most fragile when it is wet.  After using a professional shampoo and conditioner, wrap a towel gently around your hair using little tension.  No tight towel or towel rubbing, only blotting and gentle wrapping the towel, so as not to break the hair.  Spray in a detangler or leave in conditioner.  If you are using a serum or shine product, apply it next.  Use a wide tooth comb, denman or paddle brush, to comb through your wet hair, gently without pulling.  Start at the bottom, and work your way up to detangle the hair.  Apply styling cream, gel, mousse, or anti-frizz products and comb through again.

It is best to allow the hair to dry partially, before blow-drying.  Using high heat and air on dripping wet hair can be damaging.  Using lower speed and heat is best on wet hair.  More on blow-drying and styling hair to come.

Today, try to do something fun for yourself!  What do you enjoy?  Watch a funny show or movie that makes you laugh, work on a craft, call a friend for coffee, visit a child or play with a pet.

What do you like to do for fun?
