Hair colours to try this autumn

Denim hair colour

People usually say there are not too many things in life you can be sure about. As far as I see now, one thing is for sure: summer is too short. 😉 I could imagine moving to a place with endless summer but I think I would miss autumn with its beautiful trees in several colours. Lazy days are gone with summer but something new starts. Children go back to school and working days are getting more and more busy, too. I would say this season is full of life, changes and maybe new challenges. Not to forget about new hair colours to try this autumn. 😉

Autumn hair colours on Your Beauty Hair

Do you feel gloomy because summer is over? Would you like to make a change about your appearance and thinking about trying a new hair colour? Are you confused because it’s said to be tones of fashionable colours this season and cannot really decide which would be the best one for you? In this post I’m wrinting about a magical colour to try this autumn. It’s denim blue.

Denim hair colour: It was about two years ago when I heard about this colour for the first time. I liked it at first sight but I thought it to be much too „brave” for me. Years went away but this colour is still here and more fashionable than ever. So maybe it’s time to choose it from hair colours to try this autumn. The colour itself can vary several shades of blue inspired by jeans and it seems to be like denim in clothes: Never goes out of fashion and more or less anyone can wear it. Of course the tone will not be the same on all hairs, it also depends on the original hair colour.

Try denim hair colours this autumn.

If you have light hair silvery, icy tone could be the best for you. You can choose stonewashed denim hair colour which is a cool but soft option.

Indigo is a warm tone being perfect for blondes and brunettes. This colour is deeper and more intensive.

If your hair is darker you can consider wearing midnight ink denim hair colour. It’s also magical just like nights’ sky. This blue-black shade looks perfect on bronze skin.

Denim hair colour is magical.

Of course there are several tones of denim blue hair and these are just suggestions for hair colours to try this year. To make the best decision it’s better to go to a salon and ask for help and advice from a professional you trust. She will make a decision considering not only your original hair colour but the texture and also your face shape and skin tone. After chosing the perfect denim hair for you, you need to take good care of your hair to keep your hair healthy and the colour vibrant.

  • It’s better to use a sulfate-free shampoo
  • Regularly use rich hair masks or apply natural oils to moisturize your hair and scalp.
  • Try to avoid tools with heat. If you can’t do it use a heat-protectant spray before.

So? Are you ready to make a change? 😉 Find your favourite tone:

Season change and hair care

Hair problems in Autumn

Although I love summer there’s still something special about autumn for me. Just like about yesterday’s weather. It was raining in the little town I live, in the U.K. but the raindrops were so small like really tiny snowflakes. Like the ones you do believe that won’t ever make you soaked. Of course it will and whatever hairstyle you made in the morning you’ll see something totally different in the mirror after getting home. 😀 But this is just one side of autumn. You may face „autumn-challenges” because of stronger wind and damp weather. Another side is already having some hair damages because of summer. Let the reason be the high temperature, the pool or sea-water or using more styling products, your hair may need some extra care to prevent hair problems in autumn.

Hair care in autumn

It’s possible that you took a good care of your hair whole summer and it’s in perfect condition so you just need to keep the health and beauty of it. Or you may have some negative results of summer.

Let’s see what kind of hair problems you may face in autumn.

  • Damaged cuticle: During summer the protective layer of your hair often gets damaged. It’s because of the high temperature, the sun and yes, because of the sea as well. The result may be vulnerable hair with less shine getting tangled very easy.
  • Dry and brittle hair: If you cared more about having fun (which is essential on sparkling summer days) than protective hair care routine you possibly have dry hair and maybe scalp. The reason of dry hair may be because of the damaged cuticle. Dry scalp often gets worse as the temperature rises and you sweat intensively.
  • Dandruff: Sometimes dandruff is the reason of itchy scalp. Other times dandruff can be the result of itchy scalp because scratching too much may hurt the skin. Unfortunately there’s not a season when you are safe from dandruff because many things can lead to this problem. Hot temperatures and sweating too much is just a little part. See more info here.
  • Thinner or less hair: Yes, it can happen to lose more hair when summer ends than usual. They protect your scalp from UV radiation than they fall away. It is like a natural cycle of body so you don’t need to worry about it too much but need to accept that it’s a common hair problem in autumn.

Dry, brittle hair in autumn

What can you do to get back or keep the health and strength of your hair?

  • To get rid of hair problems in autumn you can start with hair trimming. It’s essential to cut split ends before the damage will get worse. It will make it also easier to grow your hair for autumn and winter if you like.
  • Given many of us want perfect pictures from holidays and use a lot of styling products for this purpose it’s a good idea to clear your hair and scalp to remove build-ups. Use a clarifying shampoo.
  • Choose hair care products with extra moisturizing ingredients and prefer natural components.
  • To fight against thinning hair you can provide extra care with special hair and scalp treatments like Philip Kingsley Tricho 7 Volumizing Hair And Scalp Treatment For Fine/Thinning Hair
  • Vitamin D is necessary to grow healthy hair but as summer goes by and days get shorter and shorter the level of this Vitamin drops. Now your diet is getting even more important in order to provide it in a sufficient amount. Fatty fish can help about it. Nevertheless during the colder seasons it possibly becomes necessary to take nutritional supplements.
  • Choose good quality styling products. They can help to prevent even more hair problems in autumn and also about fighting against fly-away hair.

As you have already experienced cold seasons may have negative effects not only on skin but hair and scalp, too. Clarifying and moisturizing is really important but there cannot be one good way of providing extra care for your head of hair because it’s essential to adjust it to your personal needs and to the state of your hair and scalp. You may need to make some changes in your hair care routine. As far as I see the necessary steps cannot be just listed and followed by every single person because of some possible differences regarding the hair damage or structure.

Natural oils in hair care 2.

Olive oil in hair care

Given I really like natural solutions I decided to write a little about another love of mine, olive oil in hair care. I was just a little girl when I decided to eat less meat and more vegetables. Those days olive oil was just a material for me to make my food healthier and I didn’t even think about using it in beauty and hair care. Maybe I was just too young for that with no wrinkles. 😉 Well, time passed and I became more and more open to using natural oils in beauty and hair care. Olive oil is one of the most effective choices having been used for such purpose for years. As a medical solution it was used already in Ancient Greece. My favourite point about natural oils is being simple and pure with no artificial addings.

Olive oil to moisturize your hair

Let’s just discover step by step

Olive oil is made by pressing whole olives. The Mediterranean region is the home of olive trees and they have been grown for thousands of years. The largest producer is Spain but Italy and Greece are also in the business. Why is it so popular among natural solutions? What are the reasons for more and more persons to use olive oil in hair care? More than 80 percent of the oil is oleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid, being useful not only in beauty care but in health care, too. Another important fact is being rich in antioxidants that can help about strengthtening the immune system. And anti-inflammatory agents can also be found it this oil that works similar to ibuprofen. There is quiet high amount of Vitamin D and Vitamin K in olive oil and this is a perfect environment for them because they need fat for absorption.

Use olive oil for healthy and beautiful hair.

Olive oil in hair care

Besides beauty care olive oil has been used in hair care for many years. It’s perfect for moisturizing hair because it can penetrate the hair shaft. Your hair will be softer and stronger after regular usage and shiny due to smoothing the outer cuticle of hair. To summ up the benefits of using olive oil in hair care:

  • Oil treated hair is able to keep more moisture. It’s true not only about olive oil but other oils like cocconut oil or argan oil, too.
  • Vitamin E, as an antioxidant , protects your skin from damage caused by free radicals and makes your hair moisturized and healthy.
  • It can help to protect your hair from physical damage. It is really useful not only when you use a lot of styling products but also to prevent split ends.
  • If you already have split ends, olive oil (other oils also) can temporary hide them by filling the gaps between cuticle cells. (The result lasts only till the next hair wash)
  • If you have dandruff because of dry scalp an olive-oil scalp massage can help to get rid of it. Using olive oil in hair care moisturizes not only your hair but your scalp, too. In the meanwhile keep in mind that dandruff may have several reasons and not an online forum or blog is the right place to find your reasons. It is strictly something for your doctor.
  • It may be an effective treatment to certain kinds scalp infections caused by fungus. Unsaturated fatty acids slow down the growth of such infectioins.

Olive oil for natural hair care.

How to use olive oil in hair care?

Use virgin or extra virgin olive oil. Due to my experience making a scalp massage with olive oil or applying it as a hair mask are the most effective ways.

  • For scalp massage:

Use just a small amount. 1-2 teaspoon of olive oil is enough. Massage your scalp for a few minutes then rinse your hair and scalp. After use the shampoo you regularly use. If your scalp and hair is really dry you may want even more effective moisturizing. If so leave the oil on your hair using a shower cap for 15 minutes and rinse, shampoo after.

  • For hair mask:

If you decided to use olive oil in hair care and prefer to apply it as a hair mask, put lukewarm oil on your scalp and massage it shortly then leave it on your hair for a few hours or even for the night. Use a shower cap or a towel. Of course you can also use other ingredients, like a few dropps of teatree oil or peppermint oil. It will have special scent and an extra antimicrobial effect. My favourite hair mask is made of olive oil, avocado and honey. It’s made of one avocado, one tablespoon of olive oil and one table spoon of honey. Mix these ingredients well and put the mixture on your hair and scalp for 20 minutes. Use a shower cap. 20 minutes later rinse your hair thoroughly.

There is one more important thing about using natural oils, like olive oil, in hair care. They are beneficial for everybody because of the moisturizing effect but it’s better to consider what your hair and scalp needs are. You need to choose the right frequency or mixture for your hair type. You can use natural oils even for greasy hair and scalp but it’s better to add a few drops of essential oils with antibacterial effects mainly if greasy scalp is associated with dandruff (caused by bacteria). I would suggest once in a month usage in this case. For dry and thick hair you can use it once a week.

Use extra virgin Olive oil for health and beauty.

The decision is always yours. The product range is huge. You can decide to buy a shampoo or a conditioner with olive oil. You can choose ready to use hair masks or you can buy pure olive oil and make your own mixtures. Whatever you choose you can do a lot for the health of your hair and scalp with using olive oil in hair care. Permed or coloured hair would also be grateful for such a treatment.

I’m still open to your feedbacks or experiences at info@yourbeautyhair.co.uk or you can contact me by clicking here.


Bangs and face shapes

Find the perfect bangs for you

In the previous post I gave you a few advices to consider before cutting a bang. In the next step, as I promised I will try to look a little deeper into different kinds of fringes and who they would or wouldn’t fit.  A lot of the people I know say that bangs are not for you if you have short forehead but it’s not totally true. Yes, you need to be careful to choose the right style but it’s true even if you have long forehead. Although we tend to point a famous person’s hairstyle and tell the hairdresser to make that for us, it’s better to confess (and love) our own shapes and textures. With a wrong choice we can create a look we wouldn’t like so the aim is to find the perfect bangs for you. So if you are still just thinking about cut or not to cut a fringe, but not ready to visit a salon, read this post and try to find the possibilities that may fit the shape of your face.

Find the perfect bang for you.

What are the main shapes of face and how you can determine yours in order to find the perfect bangs for you?

There are six different kinds of face shapes and the easiest way to figure out which one is yours is simply looking in the mirror with your hair pulled back with a headband.

  1. Oval face shape: Check the length of your face. Is it about one and a half times the width? If the answer is yes and your forehead is about like your chin or a little wider you possibly have this face shape.
  2. Round face shape: The length and width of the face are the same. Cheeks are rounded. Do you match this one?
  3. Square face shape: As far as I see the strongest part of this shape is jaw and chin and strond jaw make it look square. People with this shape usually have the same width forehead and jaw line.
  4. Oblong face shape: It almost like oval shape but a little longer with narrow chin. To be honest – just like many others – I didn’t realise the difference before.
  5. Heart face shape: Having this shape means wider forehead and cheekbones with a narrow jaw line. It is really like a heart if you have a look at it.
  6. Diamond face shape: The last one resembles the previous one because of the wide cheekbones and narrow chin but people with diamond face shape have narrower forehead. Cheekbons are the strongest and widest part of the face.

Face shapes on Your Beauty Hair

Now that you’ve had some pieces of information about how you can determine your face shape time has come to find the perfect bangs for you.

Bangs for oval face: Well, the women with this face shape are really lucky because they can wear any style and it’s not only about bangs. So if you belong to the lucky ones, finding the perfect bangs for you is mainly about what you like and what you would be happy and satisfied to wear. Depending ont he texture of your hair, too.

Bangs for round face shape: With this shape you have to be careful because bangs can make your face look even fuller if you don’t find the perfect bangs for you. The aim is to show your face a little longer and you can do it with side bangs. Another option is trying baby bangs (or blunt micro bangs) being short enough to leave some space between your eyebrows and bangs. This way your face will look a little elongated.

Bangs for square face: With this shape it’s better to say no to straight cutted fringe and long heavy bangs. It’s better to choose a choppy or curved one that can soften your jaw line. A centre-parted Bardot bangs with tappered ends will bring attention to your eyes. Long side bangs or flippy side bangs can also be good choices.

Bangs for oblong face: As it resembles oval face, bangs can be really nice on this shape. The aim is making the face less long and fringes can do a lot about that. Straight cut or side swept bangs covering your forehead and grazing your eyebrows will make your face shorter. Tapered ends and centre-parted bangs are also look nice on oblong faces.

Bangs for heart face shape: If you have this facial structure you can decrease the width of your forehead and increase the width of your jaw line by choosing the perfect bangs for you. A long, side-swept fringe or a layered bang are good choices for this purpose.

Bangs for diamond face: If you have narrow forehead and chin and your cheekbones are the widest points of your face you can create the illusion of having kind of an oval face with long, side-swept bangs. You can also try centre-parted bangs to hide narrow hairline and baby bangs also fits to this face shape. Avoid heavy, rounded bangs and straight fringes.

Choose a bang that fits your face shape

Of course these are just examples because more things must be considered in order to find the perfect bangs for you. Face shape is one of them but the texture of your hair also matters. The best decision is still going to a salon and ask for advice from a professional. Nevertheless I am open to your feedback at info@yourbeautyhair.co.uk or by clicking here

A small change for a big difference

Bangs: Cut or not to cut?

I’m not sure about other countries but here in the UK summer seems to be over. Though it was sunny today, we had long days now with cool weather, wind or rain (or both – what’s my favourite). Autumn is comming. Every time when seasons change I feel I also want to change something about me. Yeah, of course it’s usually about hair. As far as I have experienced, autumn doesn’t always support new hair styles because of windy and rainy weather. 😉 But there may be small changes to create a big difference and for this purpose bangs are perfect.

Bangs make a big difference

Long long time ago, still in the high school I always cut my hair to have bangs. I never wanted to cut the ends (but of course I needed to) because I wanted to grow it longer and longer. Those days I would have felt strange without bangs. Times change and me too which means I haven’t had a hairstyle with bangs for a while…but it’s getting too much about me. Let’s get back to today’s topic. Back to bangs: cut or not to cut? 😉

As I wrote before if you want to make just a little change for an outstanding difference you should try bangs. Some people think anybody can do it because it’s just cutting off the front part of the hair so I’m sure the most of us have already tried to do it at home. Nevertheless I suggest to visit a hairdresser for the first time and maybe later you can cut it yourself to keep the length if you like. Hair usually grows quiet fast so you may think it’s not that big decision but have a look at it a little closer. Would it be good for you?

Cutting bangs would make a big difference.

There are more types of bangs and not all of them fit to everybody. In my oppinion this is a really good reason why everyone should go to a salon for a personal advice. Having a short or high forehead can make a big difference. Yes, even if you have a short one you still can wear a fringe but side bangs or blunt bangs would be better choices. And this is not the only difference between bangs and bangs. It can be straight cutted or choppy, voluminous or wispy, longer side bangs, above-the-eyebrow ones or baby bangs, straight or with a slight curve. In order not to make big mistakes consider these few tips:

  • Ask for advice from a professional (not only the shape of your face but the texture of your hair is also important)
  • Take a good care of your hair and scalp (Healthy hair is easier to manage.)
  • Don’t use too much styling products (You may have the opposite effect and not what you wanted.)
  • Avoid worrying all day about how your bangs look and touch them (trying to make it better) again and again. (Your hair may become oily if you keep doing it.)
  • Trim it regularly

There are different types of bangs.

Whichever you choose from the above mentioned fringes, fitting your face and hair, you can change your mind in a relatively short period of time. You can always transform short bangs into longer (and longer) side bangs as your hair grows till it reaches the original length.  Or if you like your bangs you can maintain your hair cut with Hair Bangs Scissors DIY Level Instrument Hair Styling Tools Hairdressing Hair Cutting Scissors(Hair bang) My personal experience about using hair styling products for bangs is the less you use the better your fringe will look. The key is about the health of your hair. In the next post I’m going a little deeper into this topic with face shapes, so come back and let me know whatever you would like to read about in the future.

Natural oils for healthy hair

Argan oil in hair care

I have always loved everything about Egypt and just like so many others I also had the feeling there was something miraculous about its history. The pyramids and mummies have always enchanted me so much that I had made all my presentations about ancient Egypt in the primary school. So it’s obvious that I was really super excited in 1999 when the film „The Mummy” got into the movies. But why I mention this film about Egypt when I write about Argan oil in hair care? Because it was filmed in the home of Argan oil, Morocco.

Use Argan oil in hair care for beautiful hair..

This super effective oil comes from 26-33 ft high argan trees which usually live for two hundred years in southwestern Morocco where arganeraie forests are designated as a Unesco biosphere reserve. The oil itself is made of the kernels of the argan tree and often called „liquid gold” or „miracle oil” because being rich in nutrients, fatty acids and vitamins. It is obviously not unknown in cosmetic industry given it has a lot of benefits not only for hair but for skin as well. For the ones who prefer natural solutions Argan oil can be a really good choice. If you are tired of chemicals and artificial ingredients and would like to try an organic conditioner, use Argan oil in hair care and in skin care if you like.

We love Argan oil. Goats do as well.

What can Argan oil help you about?

  • It supports growing healthy hair thanks to Vitamin E, antioxidants and omega-6 fatty acids.
  • It makes your scalp healthier and helps to get rid of dandruff.
  • Using Argan oil in hair care can turn thin, brittle hair into healthier and stronger.
  • You can treat split ends with it (but remember that the effect will last only till next time you wash your hair).
  • It may undo some negative effects from dying or other chemical treatments.
  • Your hair will be shiny, soft and more manageable.
  • Also frizzy hair love it because it helps you to tame frizz.

It will help to reduce hair loss and if you apply it 15-20 minutes before shampooing it may protect your head of hair from harsh shampoo components.
  • Shampoo: If you have dry, brittle and / or damaged hair my advice is to look for shampoos with the ingredient Argan oil.
  • Hair conditioner: After using a few drops on towel dry hair as a leave-in conditioner and massaging it into your scalp your hair will be easier to manage without any greasy residue.
  • Hair styling agent: Put a few drops of Argan oil to the palm of your hands and run your hands all along your hair (which don’t need to be wet). It will give gloss to your hair and make it manageable while help to tame frizz.
  • Hair mask: Although there is a huge range of hair masks on the market you may prefer something natural but super effective. If so you can try using Argan oil as a hair mask. To do that apply liberal amount of oil and massage it into your scalp and hair from the roots to the tips. Leave it on your hair for minimum a few hours but you can also sleep with the mask on your hair, just use a towel to wrap your hair in to prevent staining.
  • Sun protection: Appling a few drops all along your hair before leaving your home can do a lot for the sun protection of your hair.

Argan oil can make your hair strong and healthy.

If you would like to use Argan oil in hair care you can choose from various products with this ingredient or you can decide buying pure Argan oil. It is up to you but both ways can do a lot for the health of your head of hair.

Beautiful hair from the roots to the ends

Defeat split ends

When we say beautiful hair we all have a picture in our minds of healthy hair in fact. Silky and shiny with no breakage. Well, it is not easy to maintain healthy and beautyful hair from root to the ends. To do it you need to defeat split ends. In case you would like to avoid the fastest and undoubtedly effective way of getting rid of split ends – the hairdresser – you can try to fix them by understanding the reasons they apper. And after you can try to avoid or minimalize these factors.

Defeat split ends for heathier hair.

When you face the problem of split ends you need to know that this is not something that must be like that. Breakage is a result of the way you handle your hair. And also some environmental factors may have bad effect on the state of your head of hair. Dry hair will possibly result split ends too. The regular usage of a blow-drier, the hair styling routines and tools with hot temperature or choosing not the proper comb also make it more difficult to defeat split ends. Even the hot weather itself during summer can make your hair dry and take part in the apperance of split ends.

Your habits will have an effect on the health of your hair.

The key to defeat split ends is in prevention. All other tricks are only temporary. Think through the following advices to grow healthy and beautiful hair from the roots to the ends.

  • Avoid brushing wet hair.
  • Minimalize the usage of hot tools.
  • Provide UV protection for your hair.
  • Eat healthy. If you’re short of folic acid, biotin or other nutrients your hair will be more vulnerable. Consider taking nutritional supplements.
  • leave-in conditioner is a good choice.
  • Use hair mask to nourish your hair.
  • Trim your hair regularly.
  • Consider wearing fabric hair ties instead of rubber rings.

So, unfortunatelly prevention is the only real way to defeat split ends. There’s no magic to make them dissappear right now. The question is what can you do if you already have the problem but you don’t want to trim it immediatelly or you don’t have the time to run to your hairdresser? There is a way to get rid of split ends but only untill the next time you wash your hair. The solution is using oils or creams to hide them. If you rather buy ready to use products try this hair mask on the ends with the innovative ingredients of CS7. Even if you prefer natural remedies you have a wide range of solutions. You can try coconut oil, castor oil, argan oil, olive oil, tea tree oil or rosemary essential oil too.

Grow beautiful hair from the roots to the ends.

We all want to be healthy, and healthy is beautiful but it happens regularly that we realise our bad habbits or poor care only when we already have problems. Try to prevent instead of solve the damage. That is the real key to defeat split ends. I’m open to your questions, feedbacks or experiences at info@yourbeautyhair.co.uk or by clicking here.

Extra moisturizer with summer scent

Coconut oil in hair care

Today’s product range is really huge whatever market you’re searching on. Producers try to serve all kind of needs of the customers. Moreover they also generate some, but that is another topic about business and profits. What I’m thinking about is the fact that you can find hundreds of products for one problem or need. Presenting new products time after time is also basic. Ready to use products from the lowest price to the luxury category. Nevertheless there are still a lot of people who prefer natural solutions just like coconut oil in hair care.

Coconut oil for beautiful hair.

The usage of coconut oil has its history. It has always been used in Polynesian cultures as a beauty product. Though it can be used in face care, like an under eye area treatment and can also be used as a natural UV filter I’m gonna write about how to use coconut oil in hair care. First let’s see the benefits you can enjoy if you decide to give it a try.

  • An effective way of nourishing and moisturizing scalp and hair
  • It can reduce hair breakage
  • It helps to manage frizz hair
  • Improves hair growth
  • It can help to get rid of dandruff
  • It can penerate the hair follicle and make scalp healthier
  • It can make hair stronger and fuller
  • A possible treatment for split ends

Moisturize your hair with coconut oil

As you can see using coconut oil in hair care has a lot of benefits. But how can you apply it on your hair? Choose extra virgin coconut oil. To bring the solid oil to a manageable state you need to heat it. Avoid using microwave oven because the oil may be less effective after. The best way is warming it with the help of a bowl of hot water. After it’s melted apply the oil on damp or dry hair. Before the usage you need to decide about the purpose of the treatment. If the aim is nourishing your scalp you need to massage it into the roots while for a conditioning effect (or if your scalp is too oily) it is enough to leave it only on your hair for minimum 30 minutes. After 30 minutes rinse your hair and scalp with warm water and enjoy the smell of this wonderful oil. For a richer scent you can drop essential oils into coconut oil before applying. My favourite is jasmine. 😉 If you face the problem of split ends apply coconut oil on the ends without rinsing.
If you like natural remedies give a chance to extra virgin coconut oil like Viva Naturals Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, 16 Ounce or a gluten-free one: Nature’s Way Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil- Pure, Cold-pressed, Organic, Non-GMO, Gluten-free- 32 Ounce.

Moisturize for shiny and soft hair

Who needs a leave-in conditioner

Several years before when 2in1 products became popular a significant part of people changed their hair care routine and started to use such shampoos. The ones who wanted to save some time for sure. Well, it can be really practical if you need to look after your children when you finished your exhausting shift at work. Nevertheless as time went by more and more people changed their mind and got back to the „normal” way of using a shampoo first and a conditioner after. And today? 🙂 If you really care about the health of your hair you don’t stop by these two steps. You can choose different kinds of hair treatments to be applied after your shampoo (and conditioner). A leave-in conditioner can also be a kind of a hair treatment given the conditioner to be rinsed is not replaced with it in every occasion.

Moisturize your hair with leave-in conditioner

Let’s see the reasons why a leave-in conditioner is worth a try:

  • Thanks to the extra moisturizing it makes your hair soft, nourished and shiny. Even coloured hair.
  • It can do a lot about curly hair. Using a leave-in conditioner can make your curles more manageable given it makes it easier to comb your hairlocks.
  • I would say it is a must if you use hair styling tools with heat. Such a product may prevent or reduce the possible damages caused by the high temperature.
  • Given it will remain on your hair till the next time you wash it, it can be able to provide some protection against the environmental damage too.

My reason to try this type of conditioning was the fact that I had always been suffering from fragile hair. I wanted to provide my hair and scalp as much nutrients as possible. In my case leave-in conditioners worked but I didn’t stop by external solutions. I know that many circumstances can have an effect on hair so I decided to take vitamins too. My advice for you is something similar. External solutions may solve some problems but we need to keep in mind that our human body builds hair itself so it’s essential to make sure about taking enough nutrients.

Use a leave-in conditioner on a towel dried hair

But… to answer the question of the title of this post 🙂 You may need a leave-in conditioner if you face the problems like dry, blowzy, faded hair or use hot styling tools. On the other hand it can also be an effective way to prevent such problems and make your hair easier to style. If you decide to give it a try remember to apply it on a towel dried hair and not under the shower.

Benefits of clarifying shampoos

How can a clarifying shampoo can help about healthy hair

Reading more and more about hair care as many aspects as possible I regularly find articles about using a clarifying shampoo for deeper cleansing. A few years ago I didn’t even think about using different kinds of shampoos in the same period of time. I mean I just choose one, used it for a few months and after… depending on the results I searched for another one if I wasn’t satisfied. I didn’t think about the different roles and different benefits of different kinds of shampoos. Now I think it is a mistake. Hair may need specail care depending on several things like hair styling habits or just different nutrients as seasons go by.

Clarifying shampoo on Your Beauty Hair

I decided to try a clarifying shampoo and it was a good decision. It is the best solution to bring hair in a condition when you can make other hair care products or remedies even more effective. I think using a clarifying shampoo is really under-appreciated. It can remove all those small parts remaining on your hair from your regular conditioner or hair styling products. Nevertheless it is not suitable for using only this type of shampoo every occasions because it can make your scalp dry. You need to be careful using a clarifying shampoo and consider the special needs of your hair. Though some advice to use it once a week I am still not sure about it because of the different hair care routines and the different frequency of  washing our hair. If you wash your hair daily and use a lot of hair styling products once a week can be reasonable. While if you wash it only twice a week once a week usage means every second occasion. I feel it too much so I would suggest once in two or three weeks usage.

To summ up the benefits of using a clarifying shampoo regularly:

  • It can make hair care products like a hair mask even more effective.
  • It helps to remove build-ups not only from your hair care and styling products but nicotine, chlorine or environmental pollutants too.
  • Using it a few days before hair colour can result a more intensive colour (while after dying you need to be careful because using clarifying shampoos can fade the colour. So keep it in mind).
  • In case of greasy hair regularly usage of a clarifying shampoo can really do a lot to make your locks more manageable.
