Katy Perry, 32, headed to The Ellen DeGeneres Show on May 16th and she chatted with Ellen about her new short haircut which was a result of dying her hair too blonde, and says her new ‘do makes her feel beautiful. Katy explained that she dyed her hair too blonde, resulting in hair loss, and eventually leading her to chop off all her hair. She explains, “I did it about a month and change ago. I don’t know if you’ve ever dyed your hair too blonde, but sometimes your hair falls out when you go too blonde so thats the way I handled it. At first this was just to salvage my hair and then I was like, I really believe that the universe has a plan for this.” Well we agree, she does look beautiful with her new short hair.
To avoid damage to your hair, Lucy Garcia Planck, hair stylist from Bergdorf Goodman gave some tips to keep your hair healthy:
1. Double duty beauty
“Support a beautiful, healthy hair from the inside and out with biotin, affectionately known as the “hair vitamin.” It promotes hair growth and helps prevent thin, dry, splitting, or brittle hair. Biotin can be found in foods like whole grains, eggs, sardines, nuts, beans, black-eye peas, cauliflower, bananas, and mushrooms or a daily multivitamin.”
2. Watch chemical overload
“Use products with natural, organic ingredients designed for your hair’s type and texture, like coconut, carrot seed oils, shea, and cocoa butters, proteins and orange, lemon, and lavender essential oils from foods. But, watch the expiration date as natural products don’t always have a long shelf life.”
3. Air dry blowout
“If you have straight hair, let it dry naturally until it’s barely damp. Take 10 minutes and roll your hair in 8 – 12 sections with a set of Velcro rollers and small clips – big ones closer to the top of your head and smaller ones on the bottom. Leave in for 20 min to an hour. Run a hair dryer for a minute ensuring hair is dry to the touch. Take out and voila! Salon blow out without the arm work out or coordination of a round brush and hair dryer.
