the study of grooming hair on human bodies, in particular for beautification
Hi there, my name is Emma Lee and I am the owner and creator of Haircareology. I’m glad you’ve stopped by.
Grooming my hair has always been a love hate thing for me. On the one hand, I enjoy styling it and making it look good, but on the other, it can be so much work! It’s funny how as a society, our standard of beauty calls for full healthy hair on our head, while elsewhere we try to be as hairless as possible.
My natural hair is somewhat fine, with a slight wave. I’ve always tried to make it fuller and more voluminous because the hair around my crown is pretty thin.
I’ve had everything from short permed styles to long untreated hair and have struggled through the years to find the right products and appliances for the looks I’m trying to achieve.
My biggest challenge is getting the look I want while reducing the amount of time I spend on my hair every day. I want to be presentable, but I’m also a busy gal (who isn’t!).
My mission on this site is to help you get your hair to look the way you want in the most effective, easiest and least time-consuming way, with as little damage as possible.
What I Write About
Haircareology is my unscientific study of all the ways to care for and style hair in the 21st century. Hair tools and products have come a long way in the last several years, and frankly, it’s a jungle out there trying to figure out which ones work best.
In my posts, I’ve either personally tried a specific product myself, or received detailed feedback from others who are in a better position to try something out (friends with different hair types, for example – natural curls or colored hair).
Finally, to make sure my experience isn’t just a one-off thing, I also look for online reviews from real people who’ve tried various products as well.
What About Keeping My Hair Healthy?
What good is great-looking hair if it gets damaged by all the effort you put into styling it? The last thing I want to do is ruin my tresses.
To that end, it’s important to take care of your health, which affects your hair. I eat healthy and take care of my body, and am happy to report that my hair shows it. You can read more about ways to do so here.
When picking out products, I also make sure to look for non-toxic ingredients and materials to protect both hair and skin from being damaged.
What I Have To Offer
While I’m not a beautician, hairdresser, or any type of styling professional, I have spent a fair amount of time experimenting and researching how to both style and care for my hair over the years.
You could say I’ve gotten a practical PhD in hair care with all the good and bad hair days I’ve gone through. 🙂
Take a look around – if you’re looking for everyday tips and recommendations on how to care for your hair, I think you’ll find the information here interesting and helpful. Enjoy!
