We spend thousands of pounds on hair care products, hundreds on hairdressers but when it comes down to basics, nearly all of us are guilty of sinning against our hair. These are the deadly sins that we commit to our hair on a regular, if not daily, basis and the know-how of becoming an angelic angel rather than a devious devil when it comes to looking after your locks. Gluttony ? over indulge if you dare! We've all done it ? piled on the hair care products, whether it is serum, hairspray or mousse, and then used a hair dryer or straighteners to finish the look. Over styling can lead to dry, damaged hair and wet products can coat the hair shaft with gunk, making the end result a greasy mess. Instead, avoid over styling by using our philosophy that less is definitely more, and it is always better to use hair care products specifically suited to your hair type.
Vidal Sassoon's Hair Hydration range is kinder to your hair as it uses revolutionary ionic technology to style hair without drying it out, so you can use them morning, noon and night. The Vidal Sassoon angel says: go easy on the product! Sloth ? the devil makes work for idle hands! If your idea of looking after your new hair colour is to use just any hair care products, then you could unknowingly be damaging your hair and limiting your new colour. Hair, just like skin, needs moisturizing and pampering and hair colouring needs protecting.
So don't be lazy and treat those locks with a deep conditioning treatment at least once a week. Use the Toni&Guy Tourmaline colour lock tools to really look after your colour so that it oozes healthiness and shine, making you look and feel great inside and out. The Toni&Guy angel says: make the effort use colour lock tourmaline hair tools! Lust ? a little bit of what you fancy does you good! If you are the sort of person that looks through magazines and lusts over the fabulous hairstyles of the rich and famous, then lust no more! Hairdryers, straighteners and stylers have been transformed over recent years so that anyone can recreate those celebrity hairdos. For example, if you love Christina Aguilera's curly look then Vidal Sassoon has the answer with the latest Hot Tool rollers ? they can't promise to give you the money or the fame that Christina has, but they can certainly give you the hairstyle! The Vidal Sassoon angel says: let others lust after you! Anger - don't look back! So, your getting ready for a big night out and you are having a bad hair day ? aaaggghh! Your hair just won't do what you want it to and you can feel the anger and frustration starting to build up.
If things are going badly, calm yourself down, take things slowly and work with your hair not against it. If you want to wear your hair down but things aren't going your way, try putting it up into a casual low-slung ponytail and add a few ringlets to frame your face using the brilliant Ribbon Curls from Vidal Sassoon. The Vidal Sassoon angel says: turn on, tune in and go out! Pride ? without prejudice! When it comes to your hair, it is always important to remember not to be too proud to take the advice of friends and hair stylists ? they may see things you don't! If you have spent years straightening your hair and your stylist suggests a change, why not try it! For the best drying power around, try Toni&Guy's Joy Stick control dryer that gives you the ultimate in controlled styling with 7 heat and speed settings.
The Toni&Guy angel says: take pride in your appearance! Envy ? don't be that little green-eyed monster!
