The Lush Long Hair Care Guide: Over 50 Tips & Ideas to Longer, Healthier Hair by Allison Tyson is a compilation of hair care tips. It has tips for nutrition to grow healthier hair, how to prevent damage, the best masks, and what kinds of shampoos and conditioners you should look for; as well as some styling do’s and don’ts for healthier hair.
I was really excited when I spotted this book. Like Tyson, I have been scouring the internet to find out what I can do to heal my hair and make it thicker. Now all the info I’ve been Googling is all in one place and it’s broken down into categories. Not only are there a ton of great tips for hair care, Tyson also explains how and why each tip works. Now that I can visualize what some damaging practices are actually doing to my hair, I will be much more likely to skip them in the future.
The most surprising tip I read was that lacking calcium leads to unhealthy hair. That never crossed my mind before. I make sure my kids get plenty of calcium but never really think about it for myself. I will be changing my eating habits. I will also make a “good” and “bad” list of ingredients before I shop for shampoo and conditioner next.
I would recommend this book to just about anyone concerned with their hair! It’s very informative without giving too much information that will go over most of our heads.
