Care For The
Stylist Heather Allen of Beyond Beauty Salon agrees. "'Good hair' can be genetic as well as achieved," says Allen. "It's all in what you use and how you use it to achieve the look you're going for: thicker and fuller-looking, sleek and smooth, fun and texture… anyone can have good hair!"
That's right, says Alan Gold, creative director of The Haig Spa & Salon in Philadelphia. "What you are born with is a combo of Mom and Dad and lots of ancestors, some better than others." And while we start our lives with this DNA, what we do with it is another story. "You can make your hair appear better with the right cut, color, condition, diet and finish, but you can't change the genetics of how it grows out from our heads."
"There's plenty we can do to get the best out of what we have," says Natasha Sunshine of the Byu-Ti Hair Therapy Salon in LA. "Eat well, take supplements and use great hair products!"
"As a stylist with a lifetime of experience in the hair business, 'good hair' is a reflection of your level of contentment with what nature has given you," says NYC celebrity and editorial stylist Gad Cohen.
"To be truly satisfied (which is very rare) with your naturally curly, straight, fine or thick frizzy hair is the mark of a fully confident and content person," continues Cohen. "Most women, even those with the most luxurious hair, will always want something more or different than what they were born with -- to have good hair."
"Your hair is a reflection of personality, and it's a truly versatile asset," says Cohen. "You don't have to torture your hair -- just learn to make the most of what you've been given." Sweep it up, wear it long or keep it short -- whatever good you do for your hair will become the "good" you have in your hair!
