Stamford, CONN. (PRWEB) January 6, 2006
For reasons of health, vanity or self-confidence, losing weight is a common resolution that both men and women make at any given time during the year. Some of them take on additional measures to feel good about themselves during the long process of shedding pounds. Some of those actions include embarking on new intellectual activities, dressing in flattering colors or taking care of their appearance — from facials and new makeup to manicures and a new haircut. Another smart action to take is to become a member of AP9 GalleriaUSA, a leading discount membership program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC. With savings at major retailers all over the country, members can save money while supporting the “back-up” actions for their big New Year’s resolutions.
An ideal way to reinforce your new “slim” look is to pay attention to your hair. How your hair looks can make a major difference in the way you see yourself and the way you are perceived by others. The right hairstyle can transform your look and personality from ugly duckling to absolutely glamorous. Keeping your hair clean, groomed and healthy can also be one of your resolutions, not to mention a good way to indulge yourself whenever you need a lift.
Members of AP9 Galleria USA log on to Dealpass.com to use their money-saving benefits and buy hair care and styling products, get haircuts or all sorts of gadgets to straighten, curl or color their hair. The possibilities are endless, but which are the right ones for you? AP9 Galleria USA gives you some pointers to keep your hair in shape, shiny and fabulous.
--Before you get a haircut, keep in mind that, depending on the shape of your face or your type of hair, the “Jennifer Aniston” look might not be a good one for you, no matter how much you want to look like her. It’s wise to browse through other possible styles and discuss your options with your hairstylist before the scissors come out.
--Hairstyle trends for 2006 include the bob, with the length varying from ear level to shoulder skimming. The bob cut works best with straight or slightly wavy hair. Another style in vogue is the asymmetric look, for daring girls who like to experiment with textures and length differences.
--Rich, dark colors are the trend for 2006, mixed with highlights peeking out from the hair underneath. Make sure you go to a professional before experimenting with permanent colors in your hair. The right color will complement your features and skin tone, so give color a try when you want to add some edge to your personality.
--Take care of your hair at home, with the right products. To rejuvenate dry hair, apply hot or cold coconut or avocado oil from the roots to the end, doing a gentle massage with the tip of your fingers. Cover your head with a shower cap, and wait about an hour before rinsing and shampooing as normal.
--For those with oily hair, a good home treatment is an infusion with mint or thyme. Boil two handfuls of any of these herbs in one-and-a-half glasses of water. Strain the liquid, and mix with your shampoo (preferably one for normal hair if your hair is not too oily). If your oily hair lacks shine, use a teaspoon of vinegar as conditioner, and rinse with a lot of cold water.
--Don’t replicate your look every day. Play with your hair -- learn how to use a blow dryer, the flat iron or the curling iron, and reinvent your look frequently. Ask your hairstylist what products are appropriate for your type of hair, and spend some time pampering yourself.
