Looking for a manicure that will last through a vacation, a busy work week, and a special occasion? It's time to think about getting a gel manicure.

Dirty hair is widely misunderstood as a good practice for hair growth. It's easy to see why this is done, but dirt in your hair does not promote growth or length retention. The truth is that hair needs to be cleaned regularly. 

Never putting water on your hair is unsanitary and may cause odor, buildup, dryness, and breakage. Bacterial growth and scalp irritation can result from dirty hair. Bacterial growth can cause scalp diseases, causing your hair to fall out or not grow properly.

If your hair part is widening, you have bald spots, or you’re shedding more than average per day, you may be experiencing hair loss. There are several types of hair loss, each with its own set of causes. Hair loss in women is simply when a woman experiences unexpected, heavy hair loss. 

Hair shedding is a natural process in which some hairs fall out while others grow in. Hair loss and bald spots occur when the balance is disrupted.

Understanding the different types of hair porosity can drastically change the way your hair behaves and responds to natural hair products. The reason your hair gets dry, soaks up your curl cream, or is easily weighed down by a hair moisturizer has a lot to do with your hair's porosity. 

While it’s normal to believe that your hair porosity is directly related to your curl type, this isn’t always the case. Before your next wash, take a hair porosity test and learn how to adjust your routine based on how porous your hair is.
