18 Ways To Hair Nirvana In 2003

Introduction

The New Year often brings about a need to chase after hair related resolutions involving words like improve, commit and focus. Why not throw out those types of word and exchange them for embrace, nurture and play. If you’ve got a hair resolution list for 2003, lose it. Instead, give yourself permission to achieve instant hair nirvana and fun.

Here’s a list to start you on your path to enjoying your tresses in 2003:

1. Beautify your private hair care den. Clear the clutter, throw away empty containers, and old brushes. Organize your hair care tools and add little touches of elegance like a beautiful new mirror, vanity trays or fabulous containers for holding hair toys. Make or buy a potpourri in a scent that you enjoy. Stock up on super thick, luxurious towels that you reserve just for your wet tresses.

2. Clean and do maintenance on your favorite hair care tools. You know the drill. Wash all your combs in hot sudsy water. Remove all hair remnants from your brushes and wash according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Run a damp cloth over your hot curlers to remove any dead skin cells and clean your blow dryer’s back vent.

3. Pamper your strands with a splurge on that sumptuous hair care line (Phytotherathrie, KuscoMurphy, Rene Furterer, Philip B) you have been lusting after. Lock yourself away in your beautiful newly organized hair palace while you soothe your senses with a long, sensual shampoo and deep conditioning treatment. Add your favorite music, essential oils, scented candles and soaps to totally overwhelm your senses.

4. Replace broken hair tools and other accessories. Consider investing in a superior boar’s head brush like Mason Pearson or a buttery soft comb made by Kent. Buy a quality hand-made hair clip by a premier line like France Luxe, Ficcare or Intuituion's Smoothies. Experiment with some of the latest designs that include lattice and double loop slides.

5. Make your hair appointments six months in advance. Select a day and time that you know will not be as busy so that you can get your stylist’s undivided appointment. When possible ask them to provide you with a reminder service 24 hours in advance. Once you have arranged for your appointments in advance your only responsibility is to show up.

6. Subscribe to a new hair magazine like 101 Celebrity Hairstyles or Short Cuts. So you can stay plugged into all the latest styles and hair trends. Stop by a bookstore that caters to foreign publications and look for interesting hair magazines.

7. Pop into a used bookstore or surf over the Ebay and search for old or out-of-print hair and beauty titles. You never know when you will discover some hidden hair care secrets in old tomes.

8. Be adventurous and whip up a homemade hair recipe from an aromatherapy beauty cookbook. If you prefer, play with adding a few drops of peppermint or Ylang Ylang essential oils to your favorite hot oil treatment for a new conditioning twist. Or experiment with making a super moisturizing cocoa butter hair treatment.

9. Wrap your freshly washed and dried tendrils in scrumptious silk while you float off into dreamland. Invest in sensual satin pillowcases or a silken nightcap to keep your hair soft and tangle free while you slumber.

10. Discover the Zen of scalp massage. Set the mood for a perfect stress busting session. Select favorite tunes for your CD, light your favorite relaxation candles, put on your comfy PJs and get ready to connect oil-dipped fingertips with your appreciative scalp. Even better, trade massages with a sweetie for a hint of romance.

11. Grab a mane giggle by loading up on DVDs or videos about hairstylists (Shampoo, Diner) or flicks that have a strong hair related theme (Steele Magnolias, Legally Blonde, Runaway Bride, Johnny Suede). Even better, invite a friend over to share in a hair masque, fresh popcorn and your fav movies.

12. Roam aimlessly through an antique mall with the sole purpose of discovering unusual hair combs, jewels or styling tools from years gone by. Imagine your hair adorned with some of the rare gems you discover.

13. Invite a lover to come over to play with your hair. Luxuriate in the feel of having your hair washed, brushed or braided. Be sure to do the same for your sweetie. Brushing a loved one’s tresses can be as sensuous as having your own strands stroked.

14. Surround yourself with hair buddies and have a mane makeover party. Pick up the Jaqua Girl’s Beauty Lounge Gathering Kit and have fun with all the goodies. Ask everyone to bring their favorite hair toys. Try on each other’s conditioners, blow dryers and styling irons. Play with hot new styling tools like automatic braiders and hot twisty curlers.

15. Surf to all the hot hairboards on the Net like HairBoutique.com’s HairTalk http://www.hairboutique.com and The Long Hair Site’s Guestbook http://www.tlhs.org to chat endlessly about your follicles. Acquire some new strand fans.

16. Sign up for a styling or blow drying class at your salon or local community education center. Learn some handy new hair care tips, meet new friends and expand your horizons on a budget.

17. Go wild with a crazy style that will make you smile. Gel your ringlets up into a perky ponytail or revisit your childhood with zany pigtails. Let your hair styling imagination soar.

18. Write down all your hair goals for the New Year. Set aside a special time every day to express your innermost thoughts in your own private hair journal and track your latest hair adventures, trials and victories.
