How To Take Care Of Your Hair: 5 Tips Inspired By Zinaida Serebriakova Artworks

Since we are in the month dedicated to women, what do you think about reading five beauty tips for your haircare today? Calm down, you’re still at DailyArt Magazine… Our beauty tips are inspired, of course, by art history, in particular, the beautiful  Zinaida Serebriakova artworks. Enjoy!

Zinaida was born in 1884 into a family of artists in today’s Ukraine that back then was part of the Russian empire. She began painting landscapes and peasants, as well as portraying members of her family. Her work had some Symbolist and Expressionist references, and it was admired and recognized in the region, especially after the exhibition of her self-portrait that opens this article, executed when she was 25 years old.

With the Russian Revolution in 1917 and the death of her husband, two years later, Zinaida found herself alone with four children, homeless and without money. Hard times! At that time she moved to St. Petersburg, and the paintings of dancers show her daughter Tatiana, who entered the Ballet Academy there.

Later, the painter lived in France and was also in North Africa. These journeys are present in her work, yet despite having painted landscapes, Zinaida specialized in portraits, mainly female.

Zinaida died at the age of 82, in 1967. Twenty years before, she became a French citizen and most of her work is kept there. They are very beautiful paintings – and for that reason, we can trust the beauty advice inspired by her.

1. Keep your hair always clean and brushed.

That way, you keep your hair free of dirt which makes it look heavy. Just like Zinaida in this self-portrait, choose hairbrushes with bristles or wide teeth.

2.  Sleep well (and eat right too!)

For those who are looking for a Rapunzel style hair, it is a valuable tip. A good night’s sleep has the ability to invigorate us but sleeping well also improves the hair growth. Eating well is also essential for hair, in the end, you provide it with nutrients from the inside out.

3. Your hair is not your friend’s hair.

Many times a friend shows up with her incredible hair, and we ask her what she does to achieve this stunning result. Be careful because such tips can be a trap. The conditioner that works for your friend, maybe a disaster for you. Know your hair.

4. Do not let your hair get stuck all the time!

Okay, I know how hard it is, especially if your hair is too long and you live in a tropical country, like me. But making the hair always tied can hinder growth, so let your hair “breathe” a little. If you need to tie, opt for loose braids.

5. Change hairstyle or wear accessories

Are you tired of always wearing the same hairstyle?  If your hair is straight, you can use some cream and tighten to ensure a more wavy effect. If you do not have time for this, how about investing in accessories? They give an extra charm to your look. It could be a scarf, a tiara, maybe even a cap. Why not?
