How to Take Care of Combination Hair

By Anna Lynn C. Sibal

There are many different types of hair. There are thick types and there are fine types of hair. There are curly ones and straight-falling ones. Some hair types are more prone to the accumulation of sebum (the natural oils that our skin secretes) than others, while some hair types are just naturally dry. There are various ways of taking care of hair according to its various types.

But what if your hair happens to be a combination type of hair? What if your hair is very oily near the scalp but has the tendency to be dry to the point of brittleness as the strands reach the ends? How do you take care of hair like that?

Fortunately, there are a number of ways to care for the combination type of hair. With the appropriate use of the right products, you can prevent damage to your hair, protect it, keep it healthy and even enhance its beauty. So how do you effectively care for the combination type of hair?

It all starts with the proper washing of the hair. In shampooing, never use hot water to wet your hair. Hair strands are susceptible to extreme heat and hot water will only damage it. Instead, just use lukewarm water.

Be choosy with the products that you use for your hair. If you have the combination type hair, avoid using shampoos formulated for oily hair. It might worsen the condition of the dry tips of your locks. Instead, opt for shampoos specially made for normal hair.

Do not use too much shampoo to wash your hair. Just a dollop the size of a quarter will do. Apply the shampoo directly on the scalp and just let the suds flow to the ends of your hair. Never apply the shampoo directly to the tips because the shampoo will wash off the oil that your hair tips need so much. If you must, just scoop some suds from the top of your head and use it to wash your hair�s tips. Never overclean your hair�s ends and be careful in handling them. Rinse the shampoo off carefully and thoroughly until it is not slippery any longer.

After shampooing the hair, apply a rinse-off conditioner. Just as you should never apply shampoo directly to the tips of your hair, you should never apply conditioner directly to your scalp either. The moisturizing agents in the conditioner will cause the scalp to produce too much oil. Instead, concentrate the application of the conditioner to the tips of your hair strands, and then rinse your hair thoroughly, this time with cold water to lock in the moisture and to discourage your hair from secreting too much oil.

For added TLC for your combination type hair, indulge in deep conditioning treatment once a week. Apply moisturizing conditioner to the dry parts of your hair, wrap it with a towel and let it be for a couple of hours before washing it off completely. You can substitute olive oil for commercial conditioner if you wish. Also, make it a habit to have your hair trimmed once every two months to get rid of your hair�s brittle ends.

The combination type of hair need not be a hair care nightmare. All it needs to keep healthy and beautiful is the know-how for its proper care.

Couture Spring 2010 Jean Paul Gaultier

Paris 27 January 2010 by Sarah Mower

He went down Mexico way. All the way. He had a mariachi band. He had gauchos, sombreros, striped peasant blankets, Spanish shawls, and cigars. He had a conquistador moment—and then he was into the jungle, weaving leaves with indigenous peoples.

Apparently, Jean Paul Gaultier had been to an exhibition about Moctezuma, the Aztec emperor, in London last year, and that—with the side influence of Avatar's tribal-eco message—is what set him off in this direction.

Yet, why? As Arielle Dombasle, a French icon of renown, took to the stage lip-synching as Carmen Miranda and Gaultier skipped out to greet her, it felt like a camp ritual—motions being gone through just because that's what Gaultier does or what he thinks people expect from him.

But Jean Paul Gaultier is far, far better than this, and if he'd only release himself from the pressure to "theme" his shows, his genius might shine all the brighter. Flashes of it were there in his tailoring—in a tailcoat over a pale pink-beige jet-beaded T-shirt and long skirt, for example, and a couple of jumpsuits. There were undeniable riches, too, as when Gaultier laid on intense top-to-toe fringing, beading, and warriorlike armor (even metal claws at one point). But still. Here's a man who could make mincemeat of any competition in Paris when it comes to tailoring, and this is a time when women are crying out for daywear, sportswear, any kind of wear that is clean, stripped back, and new. It's a shame he's not seizing that agenda.

COUTURE SPRING 2010 Alexis Mabille

Paris january 25 2010 By Sarah Mover

"Graphic surgery" was Alexis Mabille's apt tag for the geometric, color-blocking games he played for Spring. Vertically splicing bi-colored looks from the models' middle-parted hair down to their mismatched shoes—an outfit might be shocking pink on one side, black on the other—the collection was a departure for a young designer more known for bows and dressy, delicate lace. Is he, too, feeling the Celine-led urge to pare back? "Well, I don't know," he said. "I was looking at Cubist and Suprematist art, and Calder. But, yes, I wanted something cleaner, with less embroideries."

The geometric theme gave Mabille a chance to train the eye on his skillful way with cutting, piecing, and jigsawing fabric into tailored pantsuits and coats, supple skating dresses, and a plethora of eveningwear. His bows haven't gone entirely missing—they turned up as a side-tied sash on a narrow pantsuit and formed a frill on a neckline, and also appeared as fat, lush sequined bags. But the problem was that plethora. The economy Mabille applied to line and cut didn't extend to the show's edit. Halfway through, he meandered onto different subjects: black pailletted halter dresses with white collars, a skinny black sweater with a sweeping skirt, silk sailor tops with a minute raw edge. They were all great, but this is a talent who still has to learn that, in terms of putting on an attention-grabbing show, less can be more—especially when that's the technical idea he set out with.

Norwegian Wood Dressed in Tube

By Yuri Ahn Swide

We are thinking ahead. When we will be flaunting style in ski-resorts or in low temperatures around the city. D&G’s advice for this winter is to keep it warm and add a bit of feminine mystique.

There is something tender about Norwegian knits, you want to cuddle by the fire. What if you also want to fire up your attire? This winter, knits take different decisions, they cut, they dress, they veil. Something is always bare in case you are attending a soirée in altitude.
Knitted tube-dresses in traditional Northern prints are accompanied by comfy large scarves leaving bare the shoulders.Rouge. Evening-wear in winter and especially when temperatures drop add up on fabrics but don’t leave the glam back in the city. Tube-dresses shaped as elegant bustiers on top. Soft, leg-warmers are the key accessory. A luxurious detail full of sophistication that focalizes attention.Catherine Deneuve in Belle de Jour, the inspiration for the white chiffon shirt worn with a black ribbon tie. Taking the good girl image and adding to it something out of a northern fair-tale.

São Paulo Fashion Week, Summer 2010: The Bikini


Miller Harris First Rate

WHAT do you give the woman who has everything? That must have been the question faced by Samantha Cameron (probably not far off claiming the same moniker for herself) when preparing to meet Michelle Obama. Cameron answered the question by heading to the Miller Harris boutique in Notting Hill, and promptly added some of the brand's luxurious natural wax candles to her selection of gifts for the First Lady. The brand's Figue Amère candle has been a long time favourite of the Vogue beauty team, and it's great to know it has the White House seal of approval now too. From £31;
