Welcome to DIY Hair
I'm here to help you find styles/cuts/colors that you're looking for. When you ask a question, give me a specific idea of what exactly you're looking for or post a picture of yourself and I'll do my best to find some hair cuts/colors/styles that suit you!
Different pictures of hair colors, styles, and hair cuts will be posted daily.
A little about who you're getting your information from: I've been doing hair for a while now, I'll post pictures of hair that I've cut and dyed every now and then. I've read countless amounts of books on hair and haircare, and own stacks of magazines and makeup books.
I most of the time don't know the people in the pictures I'm posting, if you are in one of the pictures or know the person, let me know and tell me which picture and I will happily give them credit. Or if they want I will delete the post.
Be sure to check out the hair styling/coloring and hair care pages before asking questions, your answer might be in there.
This page is dedicated to hair care, products that I recommend and things you can do to keep your hair healthy!
Dry hair -
So your hair is dry, I’ve been there and there are a lot of ways to fix that.
First of all you need to try and eliminate any heat being applied to your hair, this includes hot water as well, try washing your hair in cold water from now on (if you absolutely don’t see that as an option there are still other things you can do). If you use curling irons, flat irons, or blow dryers on your hair either try to cut them out as much as possible or use a heat protection serum on your hair before using any of those tools.
Another thing you can do is to use a deep conditioner on your hair. If your hair is absolutely fried and dry from bleaching or coloring try doing it one or two times a week. If your hair is just dry and you are trying to smooth the cuticle down then try deep conditioning it once or twice a month.
Some products I recommend for dry hair: Hair Rescue Severe Breakage Kit, Pantene Restore Beautiful Length Replenishing Mask, Bed Head Dumb Blonde Reconstructor, Burt’s Bees Hair Repair Deep Conditioner, and Keratin Complex Vanilla Bean Deep Conditioner.
General tips for healthy hair & hair growth -
To keep hair healthy and soft there are a lot of options for you!
Not washing hair everyday can do wonders for hair, natural oils are really good for your hair. I know a lot of people aren’t too fond of this, but if you can stand it I’d suggest going about 2 days between washes. (Not saying don’t shower, just don’t wash hair every single day ;) )
Deep conditioning your hair once or twice a month will help smooth down the cuticle and keep hair healthy. And so will avoiding heat (like I said for dry hair).
As for hair growth there are some things you can take like Biotin, vitamin B12 and prenatal vitamins. Prenatal vitamins might be a little awkward to buy if you aren’t pregnant but they are really worth it.
