Braids Away!

Posted on February 4, 2014 at 10:45 AM Comments comments (0)

Braids are a great way to mix up your hairstyle. They offer a look that is easy to do and can be achieved in minutes.


Pro Tip: The trick to good braiding is to keep the tension on the strands evenly.

 

For those new to braiding, the biggest question is, how do you hold three strands with only two hands?

 

What you do is hold two of the strands in one hand and one strand in the other. As you braid, the extra strand is passed between the hands. It takes time to get good at it so don't get discouraged if your braids don't turn out perfect the first few tries. Enjoy!

Beat the cold weather blues with these tips

Posted on January 28, 2014 at 11:00 PM Comments comments (6)

This cold weather isn’t everyone’s favorite type of weather and it can make for itchy skin and a dry scalp. Hair can suffer too, especially from lack of moisture leading to dried tresses. Knowing how your skin and hair adapt, or don’t, to the cold is helpful. Once you see and feel the changes of the season, begin to make some changes to your hair care routine too.

 

1. Stay hydrated. When cold weather starts, it get even drier, so it’s important to start drinking more water. Carry a water bottle with you to work, school or when you visit friends. You’ll see and feel a difference in your hair and skin when you start getting more hydration.

 

2. Shampoo for your hair type. If you have thicker, coarser or have curls try to not wash them every day. You don’t want to wash away or disturb the natural oils in your hair that help promote growth and protect your tresses. L'Oreal Professionnel shampoo, conditioners and masques are a great way to keep your hair looking and staying beautiful.

 

3. Deep-condition. Some good ones to try: Mythic Oil, Liss Ultime, Age Supreme, and Intense repair if really needed. You’ll want to set aside 30 to 45 minutes for the product to sit in your hair. Cover your hair and sit under a dryer, if you can, to help intensify the effects of the conditioner. Be sure to rinse the product out to avoid build-up or flaking later.

 

4. Set aside the summer products! When the cold weather sets in, you may also want to make some changes to the products you normally use for spring and summer months. Set aside want you no longer use or won’t be using over the next two to three months. Make space for new items you’ll need for the upcoming cold weather season. It’s best to look for products that have lots of humectants for your thick, coarse or even curls during the cold, winter months. Puddings, creams and butters are all great options for cold weather hair care. You may have to experiment and see just how much of the product your tresses will need. Since these are heavier products, you may need to transition into them over a few weeks. You may also want to keep a refresher product on hand during the winter months as well.

 

5. Dress up your Hair. Lastly, remember to “dress up” your hair with a cute hat, or some other type of protection during the winter season. A lot of people like cowl neck sweaters and jackets that have over-sized hoods. There are also a number of cute crocheted/knitted hats that work well with your hair. You may opt to loosely wrap a scarf around your hair as well.

Keep warm....



Natural Hair Tips

  1. After rinsing your hair you can take a soft cotton t- shirt or a softer type towel and get as much moisture out of your hair as possible, without breaking your hair.
  2. You may find that applying your favorite product while your hair is wet is much easier and will comb through much better. Using a moisture based conditioner/masque is highly recommended for those who have coarse or dehydrated hair. We love our Mythic Oil masque!
  3. Sealing in your moisture is 100% key to keeping your hair healthy and shiny, so after you condition rinse your scalp and hair use the Mythic Oil leave in, it is amazing.

 

Growing your hair out?

Posted on January 15, 2014 at 10:05 AM Comments comments (0)

Growing your hair out??? Well here are a few tips to help!

 

1.  Clip and pin

Today's head bands and ornamental clips are also a great way to get those ends that aren't yet long enough to stay closer to the head and also to hold them away from the face and eyes. Take short ends and twist them into a wavy curve and pin them into a pattern that decorates your look and creates a longer, different fe...el!

 

2.  Hair nutrition

And there's always your mom's advice to take your vitamins! "Biotin is what I have most of my clients on," Jessia Warrix of JW salon says "It makes your hair and nails grow very quickly.
