biggest desire is sleek, shiny hair, heres how to mak eyour wish
come true. First, book into a hairdressers for a trim. Even if you
have one-length hair or you are growing it, just get the ends neatened
up - it will make you look more groomed. Use a deep conditioning
treatment once a week to towel dried hair. Warmth enhances the conditioning
power, so wear a shower cap or wrap your hair in cling film while
it gets to work. Leave it on for at least 10 mins. If your hair
shades looking dull and you cannot afford a salon, use one of the
reputable brands at home, sticking to a shade near to your own for
a natural, healthy effect. Semi-permanent vegetable dyes are great
for adding gloss and bringing out your natural tones. If you are
blonde go for honey, caramel or biscuit shades. Brunetts should
try nutty, chocolate or toffee shades and readheads, coppers or
cuticles are ragged and store, even though I smother them with

going with the handcream, making sure you massage it into your
cuticles gently but thoroughly, especially after washing your
hands. Never pull or cut cuticles yourself - you will need help
from a professional manicurist. The manicurist should soften the
cuticles and gently push them back. For a daily treat, use a branded
cticle cream or plain old olive oil. You can also try heating
a little olive oil for 45 seconds in the microwave. Test temperature,
then soak the fingers in the liquid until it cools. Do this for
three days running and cuticles should benefit considerably.
