Have you ever caught flicking through the hair magazines or seen hair care advertising campaigns and asked yourself ‘Can I be a Hair Model?’. Hair models are always high in demand with experienced hairdressers needing them for national and international hair shows and competitions to show off their latest designs. Many people often make the mistake in thinking this is a female dominated industry, but they would be wrong as male hair models are on the rise as men are becoming more concerned with the latest hair trends.
How to be a hair model is challenging and rule number one is that you must be prepared to have your hair transformed with colours and styles. Also if you have long hair this might be cut off to a short cropped style, make sure you are comfortable with this before going to the modelling shoot or show.
If you cut your hair frequently your hair will grow in faster, longer, and healthier. Hair vitamins for hair growth Nourish your hair from within. The idea of a vitamin for hair may sound strange at first, but the fact is hair vitamins can do more to promote healthy hair growth than any shampoo or conditioner. Your diet profoundly effects the health of not only internal systems and organs, but external ones including the hair, skin, and fingernails.
Hair vitamins can be helpful in addressing a variety of hair concerns from hair that grows too slowly to hair that is thinning.
To ensure your hair follicle remains healthy and your hair is undamaged;
- Take an inexpensive daily multi vitamin such as ‘One-A-Day’ or even ‘Flintstones.’ Your hair likes zinc and biotin and both of the above mentioned vitamins contain ample amounts of these. Don’t waste your hard earned money on ‘super vitamins.’ Your body only requires so many vitamins per day and simply discharges the excess.
- Do not over brush your hair. With every stroke you damage your hair more. Brush only as much as you need to style your hair, then stop. Comb wet hair – never brush.
- Buy a good quality brush or comb without sharp plastic or metal ridges. This is one of the common factors leading to split ends, as is over brushing.
- Don’t be penny foolish. Buy good quality products The chemicals used in many if not most over the counter shampoos and conditioners, contain very harsh ingredients such as ‘ammonium laurel sulfate’ which can actually dry your hair out, causing breakage and split ends. Even worse, many contain a form of silicon, and that can be very bad for your hair.
- Don’t constrict your hair with tight bands, hats, braids and the like. These also lead to split ends and hair breakage.
- When washing, use warm water to rinse out the shampoo, followed by a cold rinse to wash out the conditioner. This will help your hair really shine.
