How to value short hair August 22 2019
It is common to take some time to get accustomed to short hair when we have just cut them. Often we are not accustomed and do not know how to value the wires. But calm down! In this post we've put together some tips to make you look beautiful with your short hair!
1) FIND THE CERTAIN PRODUCTS
From curly to smooth, all hair types have a unique beauty and one of the main tricks to ensure a perfect finish in shorter yarn is to value this aspect. Talk to your hairstylist and ask for maintenance and finishing products that are suitable for your hair texture and highlight their natural characteristics.
2) CAUTION FOR NOT EXAGING THE VOLUME OF THE HEAD TOP
When finalizing short hair, take care not to highlight just the volume of the back, in the so-called "crown" on top of the head, and smooth the front. This error, very common, by the way, guarantees an unbalanced and old-fashioned look. The tip is avoid to use the same texture over the entire length of the wires.
3) AVOID EXTRA VOLUME NOT USING THE DRYER A LOT
When finalizing the shorter yarns, the dryer may not be the better option, after all, as the volume in this type of styling is more prominent, if you overdo the use of the tool you end up with excessively full locks. The tip is to use the heat to dry only 80% of the wires, removing excess water. Then apply an ideal finisher for your hair texture and let the work finish on its own, ensuring a natural and beautiful look.
4) INVESTING IN A VERY LISA FINALIZATION IS NOT ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA
Trying to avoid over-volume in her new stylings, many short-haired girls decide to bet on a completely flat finish. It turns out that, often, this styling is not the most suitable for such cases, since it reduces the sides of the face and stretches the region. If straight hair are your favorite, use dry shampoos or sprays to fill the root of the wires a little, using your fingers to lift the area.
Hair Coloring Myths and Truths August 22 2019
For many years, it was believed that the colors and lights were bad for the hair, but in fact, if the procedures is well done and the hairdresser can identify the limit of the hair, it can remain healthy and beautiful, without breaking or falling.
Still, there is a lot of misinformation spreading about colored hair. But don't worry, cause we going to tell you all of them! Check out:
- The ink dries the hair
Myth. The ink not makes the hair dry. Actually, Hydrogen peroxide (the substance present in the oxidants) is the real responsible for causing dryness, but it all depends on the volume used of the substance, a point that people do not usually pay much attention to. For the paint, there are oxidants from 10 to 40 volumes. The higher the volume, the more aggression to the wires. Each of these oxidants is specific to a hair type, so it is up to the hairdresser to evaluate the porosity and structure of the hair to determine which one is appropriate. If there is no such assessment, there may certainly be dryness.
- Coloring the wires with dark tones helps to protect the wires
Myth. This information is very popular, but it is completely false. All dyes have the same action on the hair, regardless of color, and can damage the hair if not used properly. In fact, people get this impression because dark inks reflect more light than lighter shades, which causes a false impression of hydration.
- Who has colored hair can use flat iron or baby-liss
Truth. Those who have the colored wires can use flat iron or baby-liss, but carefully. Use should not be daily and care must be taken with temperature. It is essential to use a thermal protector first and the wires should always be well dry.
- Natural blonde hair suffers more from dyes
Myth. Again, the dyes have the same action on the hair and their color does not influence it. What determines how much hair will suffer from dyeing is the thickness of the strands. Thinner strands tend to suffer more because they are more delicate, but with proper diagnosis and the use of products that oxidize less, it is possible to preserve the integrity and beauty of even the finest hair.
- Hair toners are less aggressive than paints
Truth. Hair paints often contain ammonia, a substance that opens the cuticles and allows the color to penetrate more into the strands. This is what makes the dye last longer. The toners have no ammonia, so they are less aggressive and also last less, fully losing their color in about two months.
Hair vs. physical activity and sweat April 10 2019
spinning, dancing, fights ... the diversity of activities is enormous. Whatever is chosen, the fact
is the same: you have to sweat! At the end of the exercise, another concern with beauty comes
in: the care of the hair. And then, the question arises: should we always wash our hair after the
First, let's understand how sweat acts on the wires: sweat is made up of sodium chloride
(salt) and fat, which are produced by the skin glands. With the practice of physical activity,
these components have increased production, causing damage to the wires. Excess salt, for
example, can result in dry hair, while fat, which has a protective function, can clog the follicle
when it is too much.
In addition to damage to the hair fiber, sweat creates a scary appearance to any woman:
Sodium chloride and fat are liquids that moisten and stick to the wire, disrupting their shape,
creating embarrassment and resulting in an unpleasant appearance.
Therefore, the ideal is to wash your hair whenever you sweat a lot after a physical activity.
Of course if it is a moderate workout, it does not have this need, but when the hair drips off, it
is advised to wash them.
To maintain the natural oiliness of the yarns, you have to choose suitable products for
this. The low pool is a good option. On days when the you have to rush dry shampoos can also
help. They help reduce moisture and oiliness of the scalp, giving the hair more lightness,
volume and extending the duration of the hairstyle.
Do I always have to change my shampoos and conditioners? April 04 2019
1) To begin with, it is necessary to mention that there are several scientific proofs that using the
same products with high frequency over time actually improves their effectiveness the results
2) Another important factor to consider is the amount of waste left by other products,
especially styling products such as gels, ointments and sprays, which can critically affect the
look and feel of the hair and are not related to the effect of shampoo and conditioner . When
used too often, they ask for a deeper cleaning of the threads, increasing the number of washes
or doubling the use of the shampoo with each wash.
3) Periods of hormonal changes such as adolescence, pregnancy and menopause can alter the
structure of the wires and thus the need for hydration and care of your hair. In these times, it is
best to seek the advice of dermatologists or doctors to understand whether you need to add
some step to your routine (such as a mask or ampoule) or whether you need to change the
benefit of the products you are accustomed to use.
4) The passage of time also influences the structure of hair that, like hairs, becomes thinner and
fragile with age. With this, there may be a need for treatments to strengthen or protect hair,
but this does not imply that your Shampoo and Conditioner have to be changed if your formula
is already of superior care.
5) Lastly, if you live in places with drastic changes in weather, you can try different version of
your favorite products, focusing on Restoration of severe heat damage and intense hydration in
This is one of the strongest beliefs about hair care products. If you have ever felt that your
favorite shampoo and conditioner will not have the same effect, get ready to find out what
really happens and what the reasons are.
However, the most important thing is to ensure that you are using high quality products and
advanced technology. With this, you accumulate results over time, making a complete
treatment. If this is your case, the most you will need will be to add a step to your hair routine
or adjust the collection used to a new benefit while keeping the main active ingredients to
continue with the desired effect.
YOU DONT NEED ALWAYS CHANGE SHAMPOOS AND CONDITIONERS, THIS IS A MYTH.
CONDITIONER April 03 2019
When it comes to passing the conditioner, many people do not know what to do and spend it
on their entire hair. Ok. When we pass, the hair becomes soft, but in fact, put conditioner at the
root can result in peeling and excessive oiliness.
SO, WHAT IS THE CORRECT WAY TO USE THE CONDITIONER?
After thoroughly washing your hair twice with the shampoo, the conditioner part is very easy.
Just apply the product to the length and ends and, as you untangle the wires with your fingers,
two minutes are enough to let it act and treat your strands.
Important tip: Waste of conditioner in the hair after the shower is not cool. The product was
not made to stay in the wires as it does not have antioxidant agents to protect them. Therefore,
it is a good idea to rinse well until the water leaves well cleaned, see?
MY HAIR IS VERY OIL, CAN I FORGET TO PASS THE CONDITIONER?
Not! The conditioner is as important as the shampoo when it comes to washing your hair. The
story that the product weighs and leaves oily hair is a great myth. It has the power to close the
cuticles that have been opened by the shampoo for hygiene. In fact, the best option is choose a
product for oily hair.
But what about investing in a finisher after the shower? If you want to use dryer, use a heat-
activated leave-in to protect your wires from the heat of the tool. For women with curly and
curly hair, combing cream is a good way to define curls.
Learn how to wash your hair properly on a daily basis January 21 2019
Many women wash their hair and can not get them loose and silky at the end of the process as they would like. This may have happened because there was some mistake in the washing process that went wasted. With this post, we aim to help you wash and care for your wires daily so they are always beautiful the way you deserve.
For start, it is important that the water is at not so warm temperature, so as not to overuse the wires. At the time of shampooing, the amount of product is similar to the size of a coin. Hair should be washed twice: the first time to remove oil and dirt, and the second to take advantage of the benefits and treatment of the product. Attention: the wash should be done by rubbing the fingers at the root, never the nails. The nails can damage the root causing them to have spaces for the entrance of fungi and other bad microorganisms.
After rinsing well, remove all the product and the excess water. If you want to moisturize the wires, the ideal at this point is to use the massage cream. The shampoo opens the cuticle of the hair, leaving it ready to receive the nutrients. Only then comes the conditioner, to close the cuticle. The measure for both products is also that of a "coin" in the palm of the hand.
Those who have the most oily wires should pass the cream just on the tips. For curly hair that is usually drier, it should spread throughout the length and the remaining residue on the hand can be put on the parts closest to the scalp to help contain the frizz. The ideal is to pass the conditioner and let it act for 2 minutes, then pass cold water.
Some hairs still need a leave-in or combing cream at the end of the process. With damp hair, place a small amount of the cream on the palm of the hand and apply about halfway down the wires, kneading the curls with your hands, from the bottom up. Another suggestion is to comb with your fingers. The product will help in clearance and prevent breakage. It is not necessary to rinse.
Tips to have a Kardashain's hair January 08 2019
One of the most wanted hairs is, without a shadow of a doubt, Kim Kardashain. With her glossy black hair she calls attention both in the day to day and in the red carpets. Here are some tips for you that want to have the wires as full of life as hers.
As always, this practice plays an important role in capillary health. But it is important to make this habit something regular. No moisturize only once a month, ok?
2- Controlled temperature
The hair straightener can ruin (much) the wires. Therefore, when using the product, control the temperature and use a thermal protector.
3- Sleeping with silk pillow
Fabrics such as cotton and polyester rub the strands, making them often wake up opaque and frizzy. To keep the shine, silk pillows are a great request.
4- Protect and finalize the wires
Essential oils are great for sealing and brightening. Use them as an ally!
5- Dry your hair with a cotton T-shirt
The towel, although much used and common, rubs against the hair and causes frizz and opacity. When you get out of the shower, it's better use that old cotton tank top you no longer wear. Your Hollywood celebrity look will appreciate it!
Organic Paints: safety for you and the earth! January 03 2019
With the discovery of new technologies and products, a market that is getting bigger is that of natural cosmetics. The pursuit of skin care, nail and health bet more and more on everything that nature has to offer. When it comes to hair, it could not be different: products that have the power to help the wires and are less aggressive to the scalp are the new bet for women suffering with damaged hair.
Therefore, organic paints appear as a new alternative: they are dyes that promise to color the hair, naturally, without attacking them.
Organic paint must have all natural characteristics.
In addition, ingredients that have been grown with the use of pesticides, fertilizers and synthetic fertilizers are banned.
They are an excellent outlet because they do not have substances that are often harmful to the hair, such as lead, ammonia and alcatrao. They are also an option for anyone who wants to discolor hair but has allergies to these components.
Organic dyes are therefore safest in terms of our health and environmental impacts. Stay tuned for the product labels and consult your hairdresser to understand the process!

How to use modeling brushes to change your look December 11 2018
- Wash hair with moisturizing line shampoo and change conditioner through mask to keep wires disciplined longer.
- Apply a leave-in antifrizz action and remove excess moisture with the dryer.
- To ensure the perfect smoothness, use a hot-air brush, which runs from the root to the ends with the bristles facing inward, as if you were combing the wires. The straightener should be used with the hair totally dry, only for finishing.
- The trick to a moving brush is in the preparation. Use a volume shampoo and a mild conditioner not to weigh.
- Spray texture spray all over the hair, including the root, and dry using your hands.
- Rotary brushes, when used at the same time as the dryer, create right waves. Already the so-called magic brush, which only heats, should be used alone. With the appliance upright, wrap the wicks one by one on the bristles, hold for ten seconds and release.
- On styling day, dispense the conditioner. This helps create texture and increases the duration of the effect.
- Pass a definition cream with thermal protection. If you want more defined curls, dry with a diffuser.
Choose the babyliss according to the desired effect. The wider the apparatus, the more open the wave. Automatic modelers - which spin and wind the hair on their own - are easier to use than the others. But take care: Use thin wicks for not tangle up the hair.
LOW POO AND NO POO November 20 2018
Washing the hair is one of the most sacred moments of beauty, however, not always the shampoo we use does well to capillary health. The reason is simple: sulfate, petroleum derivatives and parabens present in traditional products that are used for cleaning can cause dryness and loss of oiliness. To give a rest to the wires, there are techniques like the low poo and no poo.
The procedures are ideal for keeping curly and curly hairs more moisturized, but nothing prevents them from being used on other types of yarn.
If you are used to using the common shampoo, it is best to start with the low poo, after all, abrupt change can damage your hair. Low-poo products have a low sulfate content.
The low poo is indicated primarily for those who can not completely eliminate traditional shampoos because of excessive oiliness of the scalp. Sportsmen or women who live in places with high temperatures, for example, suffer the most from the problem.
In the case of the no poo the use of sulfate is totally eliminated from the capillary routine. Therefore, it is necessary to avoid the use of products which do not mix with water, such as insoluble silicones, mineral oil and paraffin. They stick to the wires and you may need to use the sulphate for cleaning.
To follow the technique of the no poo, you can eliminate shampoo with or without sulfate and substitute for homemade recipes. It is still possible to buy products that serve to clean hair, but that do not have sulfate. If you are thinking of adhering to washes, you need to shy away from shampoos that have substances like sodium, lauryl sulfate, lauryl ether, ammonium sulfate and sodium lauryl ether sulfate.
In the no-poo method, the co-wash is applied, a process that relies on the use of the conditioner alone. In the low poo, the shampoo (even if with little sulphate) still precedes the act of conditioning.
It is important to avoid the use of conditioners that contain insoluble silicones, especially during no-poo. Hairs need emollients, humectants, proteins and moisturizers and it is therefore recommended to look for products that contain shea butter, vegetable oils, olive oil, chestnut oil, D-Panthenol, Glycerin, Sorbital, Aloe Vera, wheat and soy.
In addition to all these has a great advantage for those who use both techniques: you less wash your hair, so you can save money and shampoo!
TIPS FOR CLEARING THE HAIR NATURALLY November 13 2018
Many women have the desire to lighten their hair but do not want to undergo chemically aggressive processes that need eternal touches. Therefore, in this matter we will give some tips for those who want to light the wires naturally and away from the saloons.
Although the sun is in many ways harmful to the hair, when it comes to getting blonde it can be a great ally. The sun clears the wires, especially in summer, when their incidence is higher. To keep from getting dry, always moisturize your hair.
2- Lemon Juice
Lemon juice is another alternative. But attention! If your hair is dark it runs the risk of turning red. Therefore, this tip is restricted to those who already have blond or light brown wires.

3- Chamomile tea

4- Power Mix

Stressed person, Stressed hair November 07 2018
Have you tried everything and can not understand why your hair is falling? It may be that even if you feed yourself well and buy the best products, your problem is internal.
Hair is very sensitive parts of our body and can sometimes suffer damage from the inside out. We have talked about this on the blog a few times about food for example, but there is another factor that can also damage our wires: our mental health.
Stress hair loss is real and scientifically proven. During periods of stress the body releases a substance that increases the production of estriol, which in turn blocks the entry of nutrients in the capillary region causing a premature termination of the growth phase. In addition, stress also increases hair oiliness, favoring the formation of dandruff.
First of all, if you consider yourself to be a stressed person you must go to a specialist. It will probably ask you blood tests that are essential to diagnose this problem. The examination is very important even because lack of nutrients can cause stress (is one problem may be connected to another).
If you really are sure that your problem is this, you will probably go through two steps: firstly, you will use products like shampoos, vitamins and hair tonics.
Another part of the process is "de-stressing." This part will depend on your degree and may or may not need medicines.
If you notice that your hair is falling, seek help, but do NOT get stressed out because of this problem. Remember that nowadays we have great professionals in the area and it is not the end of the world. Being stressed will only make the wires worse.
Also, to prevent this from happening, always have good habits in your routine for your mental health, such as physical activities or going out with friends. The secret of a happy and healthy life is balance!

Postpartum hair loss October 08 2018
Hair loss after pregnancy is normal and affects almost all women who are breastfeeding, but also those who do not breastfeed, although they are somewhat less affected.

Find The Perfect Hairbrush For You! September 17 2018
It may seem that the important thing is to just comb the hair and that any brush solves this problem. But believe me, there is an ideal type for your hair, and often the secret of beautiful, shiny hair may be the perfect brushing.
And it's not just the appearance of the wire. Other issues such as oiliness and falling can also be caused by the wrong choice of brush.
So, let's go:
- Natural bristles
These are perfect for controlling frizz and give some shine hair. However, they are not suitable for straightening, since they do not fix the hairstyle very much.
- Plastic bristles
They are ideal for a longer lasting action on the hairstyle. Those that even have little balls at the ends lead the oiliness from the root to the tips.
- Square or oval
These brushes are made solely for combing. You can use them in dry or wet hair. But do not use them to model, as they can leave a lot of frizz in this case.
They serve to model and smooth. The metal or ceramic ones retains the heat and accelerates drying, modeling the wire better.
It gives volume due to the spaced bristles. If the model has an oval ceramic base and natural bristles, it also serves to shape the tips.
- Your type of hair
Generally, those who have thin hair want to gain volume. For this, those brushes with fine bristles are indicated.
Unlike the above case, here the will is to control the volume. For this, the ideal brush is the one with larger spaces between the bristles.
- With frizz
Anyone with a frizz problem should be aware of the brush material. It should be made of wood with small, well-bonded bristles.
- Curly hair
This structure is more delicate and therefore it is better to choose combs instead of hair brush. In addition, the ideal is to always brush them wet.
- Straight hair
This texture requires round, thermal brushes with nylon bristles.
The ideal brush should be round with mixed bristles, meaning the bristles should be one larger than the other.

Worse things you can do to your hair! September 10 2018
Sometimes it seems that the hair revolts against us. Is not it? We hydrate, we try to take care of it, but even then it seems to have a life of its own. The point is that hair is a delicate part of us and you may be having some bad habits and having no idea. We hope that with this list you can identify the mistakes you are making to have healthier and beautiful hair.
1- Washing very often or with very hot water
This practice removes a good amount of the oils that are essential for the health of the yarns.
2- Brushing the hair wrongly
Two fatal errors: brush the hair with them wet or brush from the scalp (the right thing is to start from the tips).
3- You use towel to dry the yarn
The texture of a regular bath towel irritates your cuticles, causing frizz. Therefore, a cotton shirt is the best option. Just squeeze the excess moisture carefully and wrap the hair in the T-shirt.
4- Use dirty hair brushes
Sometimes we forget to clean the brushes all the time, right? But when brushing the hair, several dead skin particles that are not perceived by the naked eye are attached to the brush. This dead skin is the perfect environment for the accumulation of different types of bacteria and do not clean can help them go to your scalp.
5- Stuck hair all day
If you have the habit of use stuck hair very hard and for a long time, it can damage the wires, leaving them damaged, because the root is literally pulled back.
6- You are not eating enough protein
Your hair is made up of protein, so make sure you are eating foods that have enough of it, such as fish, chicken, lime, and other grains.
7- You are doing a lot of hydration
These products usually have a lot of silicone. The problem is that the substance, when used in excess, tends to accumulate in the strands, resulting in heavy, lifeless hair, rather than a shiny and soft. It is best to make hydrations only when necessary or invest in products without silicone.

If there is one thing that is allowed to dare is the hair! Vibrant colors like pink, blue, purple, orange, yellow and red are a trend for those who have the guts and are tired of being ordinary. But what many people do not know is that along with the style these hairs bring a range of care necessary for the wires to always be bright and beautiful colors. Here are some topics you need to read before playing with these dyes:

Apply only what is necessary to clean the hair, not to remove the paint. Put the amount of more or less one coin in the palm of the hands, that will be enough to wash the hair.
3- Dry shampoos
As water is a great helper for fading, betting on dry washes from time to time are a great way to lessen washes.
4- Use specific products
Basic tip, but very important: use products for colored hair and, if possible, for the specific color chosen. These products have a more acidic pH and close the scales, making the pigment last longer and leaving hair brighter.

Dryers: allies or enemies? June 18 2018
Hair dryers are a controversial subject. Although they are often associated with ruining your hair, if used correctly, they can be a great ally in your routine.Often, after doing many chemical treatments, the threads become elastic and very difficult to be combed. Especially blond women, after making lights, face this problem. In this case, the dryer is a great ally, because if it dries naturally, perhaps the hair will burst.
In addition, the dryer is a great ally of sealing, which is a treatment for frizz which nourishes the hair by means of heat. Keratin, for example, is an essential protein for hair that needs heat to be absorbed in the best way. So a great way to use the dryer is to buy a keratin (liquid, preferably) and put it in the hair after bathing once a week. After passing the product, dry the hair thoroughly immediately. Your hair will become super hydrated.
As you can see, the dryer is not just an enemy of hair. Everything is relative and he can be a great friend! But do not forget: always use a thermal protector so that the heat does not reach the scalp.

HOW TO KEEP PLATINUM FOR LONGER May 21 2018
If you are or have already been blonde, you will definitely identify with this situation: you leave the beauty salon with the perfect color, platinum the way you always dreamed and over the days will watch your hair turning yellow gradually. It is not easy to suffer this disappointment, but today we will teach you to keep platinum for longer.
The first step is changing habits. One of the things that most damages platinum color is heat. Whenever you bathe, use warm or cold water and try not to expose yourself to the sun without a thermal protector. The straightener, for platinum hair, is the worst option, because it is the one that comes in more direct contact with the blonde. In this case, avoid using it as much as possible, but if it is of extreme necessity, use at maximum temperature of -135ºF (180ºC).
It seems obvious, but this tip is of the utmost importance: choose the right products for your hair! The platinum blonde is one of the most sensitive hair you can have, so you have to choose shampoos and conditioners that are specific to those who have this coloration. One should not fall into the false idea of those products that are written: "shampoo for all types of hair". The label should have something like: "shampoo for platinized hair" or "shampoo for discolored hair".
Once a week or every 15 days, you should give yourself a purple shampoo and let it act for a few minutes. These products neutralize the yellow color, resulting in the desired honing tone. But attention: the shampoo is not miraculous and will not advance anything if you do not follow the previous tips.
As you can see, it is not at all impossible to keep the color that you left the salon, but you must be careful and discipline. We advise you to create a "capillary schedule" to care for your hair through the steps of hydration, warm protection and the right products. Your hair deserves this affection and this way, the color of dreams will never become your worst nightmare.
Learn how to take care of your hair after straightening April 17 2018

It is also very common for the hair to become dry after straightening. If you notice that yours is like this, make hydrations weekly with products for your hair type. Another good tip is to put a thermal cap or a plastic bag to drown the hair with the cream, boosting the hydration. Leave-ins and natural oils are also a great option. The tips tend to get even more dry because straightening makes it difficult for nutrients to reach them. In this case, it is interesting to apply silicone to the ends.
Lack of brightness is also a well reported problem after straightening. In that case, probably the cause is the loss of keratin. Therefore, it must be returned to the hair, applying liquid or cream keratin weekly in the first month. Then the application can be reduced to every 15 days.
Lastly, feel your hair! Just wash it when you really need it, and not because of routine. The less times you wash, the more your smoothing will last and you will still maintain the natural nutrients and oiliness.

Learn how to maintain your natural hair oiliness April 10 2018
Different than many women think, an oiliness is a natural and healthy process for hair. According to the experts, as much as they do not like, the oiliness nourishes the wires and the scalp. A lot of times, by adopting wrong practices, many women tend to lose the natural oiliness of the hair, leaving it dry and dull. In this article, we will help you restore the life of your hair.
One of the first steps is to change the hot water to cold or warm. The hot water is bad for the hair because it removes all the natural oiliness, leaving the wires dry. In addition, this temperature hurts the scalp, leaving it unprotected, and may even result in dandruff. The ideal is to wash hair with cold water because it cauterizes the hair and maintains all natural proteins and oils. If you can not take a bath without hot water, the suggestion is: take your bath with the desired temperature and just cool down when rinsing the wires.
Another very important thing is to be attentive to the Ph of the chosen shampoo. The pH of hair strands range from 4.2 to 5.8 and the scalp ranges from 3.8 to 5.6. Therefore it is important to use acid shampoos to maintain the balance of the wires. The pH causes variation in the intermolecular bonds of the wires. So, the right thing to do is to use shampoos with pH of 4 to 5, the slightly acidic ones. Once a month, it is interesting to use products with neutral PH, which help to make a powerful cleaning on the threads, treating them deeply.
One of the most effective and emergency options is to spread oil drops directly on the scalp. Spread five drops of oil ten minutes before going into the shower - it will seal the damaged fibers and restore the natural oiliness of the hair. Then apply a teaspoon of oil to the wires, wrap them in a warm, damp towel and let it act for about 30 minutes. The oil can be whatever you have at home, the olive and coconut are great choices.
As you can see, it is not difficult or even expensive to maintain the natural oiliness of your wires. You just need to be aware of the temperature of the water, choose good products and make an oil treatment when you feel the need. Stay alert to the daily care and you will bring life to your hair again.
Nature gives us everything we need, since we are her children. All hair and skin products feature a diversity of natural products that make up a nutrient formula. What many people do not know is that many nutrients can be used pure, like coconut oil
The oil has vitamin K, vitamin E and iron. They leave the scalp stronger and nourished. For those who have dry hair, it is one of the best options, because it can penetrate the scalp. This is an incredible differential because most oils moisturize only the surface of the hair.
For the women's nightmare, as double ends, coconut oil is also a great ally. It seals the ends giving a more uniform look to the hair, without the unwanted frizz. In addition, it is responsible for optimal shine and softness.
It is important to tell you that this oil is also one of the most versatile on the market. If your hair is very oily, it is good to pass it before showering and then wash. But if the case is a dry hair, it is ideal to pass the product after the bath, in small amount, as a leave-in. This will make it bright longer. Now, if your desire is to accelerate hair growth, massage the scalp, this stimulates blood flow and increases capillary oxygen.
As you can see, this oil rich in fatty acids is one of the best options when it comes to improving hair health. It is rich in oxidants, and best of all: you can include it being your hair long, short, blonde, tan, red, afro, curly or straight. No segregation!
