Wear the rainbow

Try ombre in hair colouring

As seasons pass by fashion keeps changing over and over and hair styles or colours are not exceptions. From one point of view it is not easy to be trendy at all times and keeping the health and the strength of your hair at the same time. From another point of view it is really exciting and a very good chance to renew ourselves. Although ombre hair colouring is relatively new but this is something being able to cover a wide range of alternatives. As I see it was originally created by nature. 😊

What is ombre generally

Well, it is much more than a hair colouring technique. The ones speaking french know that the word itself means shading. It is a lovely way of playing with colours blending from one to another, from light to dark. If you have ever read about its history you know that it was used already in the 1800s although mainly for dyeing fabric. The technique itself can be applied in various fields from home decor to nail colouring.

What is ombre in hair colouring

If you decide to try ombre colour your hair will be darker from the roots till about the middle of the length while it is lighter from the middle part to the ends. This is called traditional ombre. If you prefer it in the other way and wear darker colours close to the tips you should choose reverse ombre. Regarding the colours themselves my favourite is still brunette ombre with warm brown tones. In this case you can keep an original brown colour (if you have this colour) from the roots and choose 2 shades lighter from about the middle till the tips and your hair will look sun-kissed. But this technique covers more possibilities.

Ombre hair colour

  • Grey ombre = grombre: For those who want something unusual this type can be perfect. You can give some greyish tones to your original hair colour whether it is black, brown or even blond.
  • Colourful ombre = colombre: Although it is not natural at all colombre is also popular world-wide. Choosing this type you can mix different colours and have rainbow shades.
  • Silver ombre: This bold, metallic colour can be combined with any hue and looks good also if you don’t have so long hair.

Ombre and colombre hair colour

Of course you can use this technique with any other colours beside the above listed ones. You can choose blue or red ombre if you prefer such tones. The list is really long from lavender to ash blonde.

An important part of the whole procedure of any type of hair colouring is taking good care of your hair before and after as well. Whatever colour your hair is it will look perfect only if you make efforts also to moisturize it. A really effective product for hair care is a deep conditioning hair treatment.

Trimming and strong hair

Will you have thicker hair if you regularly cut it?

When I was a child my lovely mother always told me that there was a good reason for cutting my hair short … time after time. She was sure that if she acts like this my hair will be stronger and thicker. Well, it hasn’t been. Now I am grown up 😉 and I make my own decisions but I have always been wondering if that was true or just a myth. In this post I am going to write my opinion about this topic.

Trimming in hair care

As I see this surmise is still on but if we just think about it for a while we must say that it cannot really be true given every single hair grows from the scalp. So it must be the condition of the scalp that can define the quality of the hair from the beginning. After that it is all the procedures like styling or colouring that can damage our hair all along but mostly the ends. Although using quality products can create a better chance of keeping your hair as strong as possible there is still another relevant point. It is overall health. There are certain vitamins and minerals being essential for healthy hair. If you have a balanced diet or take nutritional supplements you create a better possibility of growing strong and beautiful hair.

Vitamins and strong hair

So…Regular trimming or always cutting your hair short do not likely has an effect neither on the strength of your hair nor hair growth. Nevertheless it is highly recommended because it can improve the look of your hair. If you get rid of the broken ends your hair will look healthier and thicker too.

Here are the things that you can do to improve your hair

  • Choose quality products
  • and use the ones that moisturize also the scalp
  • Be careful about hair styling technic and tools
  • Provide sufficient nutrients for your body
  • And yes. Keep your hair trimmed

If you are not sure what products can help you to achieve the look you desire feel free to contact me at info@yourbeautyhair.co.uk for more information.

If you realise unusual hair loss or other hair problems always consider of a medical check given several disorders may cause such symptoms.

Strengthening or hair extensions

What kind of hair extensions you can choose from

If you are not satisfied with your hair you have a really good possibility to make it stronger, healthier and more beautiful. I am not talking about hair extensions yet but a hair fitness treatment developed in a European laboratory and offered by a more than thirty year old company. In case you would like to strengthen your hair instead of / or before using any extensions have a look at a wonderful product that can make your hair healthier and contact me at info@yourbeautyhair.co.uk if you would like to buy it at a more favourable price. If you prefer using extensions keep on reading about what types are there on the market. 😊

Hair strengthening or using extensions

There are more aspects to assort them. If you look at what they are made of it can be synthetic or human hair.

Regarding their structure there are three main types. The names don’t show their origin but the main parameters:

European: Typical european hair is relatively thin and has an oval cross-section. It is the best for making your hair longer, thicker or building a whole wig. You can use such extensions for years, up to 3 years.

Indian: The construction of indian hair is very similar to european one but it is not that long-lasting. You can rely on them for 1,5-2 years. You can buy them in natural colour and your hairdresser can apply the perfect tone.

Asian: Asian hair is thicker, straight and has a round cross-section. You can easily buy them prepackaged and wear occasionally given it is rather for short-term (last for a few weeks).

Have the desired hair

Regarding the way of application :

Tape-in: With this solution you can fix the extensions with taping them to your real hair. Later they can be removed and reused (with new two sided tapes) if you like. It can be applied within just a few hours and lasts for weeks but doesn’t really look well with thin hair.

Micro-ring: In this method pre-bundled hair is connected to your real hair with little rings. You can wear such extensions for a few months but need to sit in your hairdresser’s chair to for more than four hours and it is not really suitable with short and weak hair that breaks easily.

Sewn-in extension also lasts for months while the procedure itself is shorter (1-2 hours). A horizontal cornrow is made round the scalp then extensions are sewn in. Using no glue or heat is a good point and removing it is said to be easy but it can be painful and tight braids may cause hair loss.

Clip-in: This is the best way for the girls wanting longer hair just for the night or for an occasion given it takes only 10-15 minutes to apply. You can wear them for about a week if you like but it is better to remove daily. Such extensions have clips you can fix with.

Keratin hair extensions: In the last method I am writing about pre-tipped hair is used and fixed to the real hair. There are two ways of doing that depending on the fixing way. Hot and cold. The former can damage your hair and not suitable with thin and fragile hair but the latter is sad to be a gentle way given no heating is required. Both lasts for a few months and made within 4-6 hours.

There are several kinds of extensions on the market

There are several ways of hair extensions but choosing the correct type is very important. A wrong choice may cause irritation or even hair loss. And even if you choose to wear hair extensions you still need to take a good care of your head of hair and fake parts need more and a bit different hair care than your own hair. Don’t forget to contact me at info@yourbeautyhair.co.uk if you’d prefer strengthen your real hair. 😉

Ingredients in hair care products

Why castor oil

In order to have beautiful hair we certainly need to focus on our overall health. Though it is essential for growing strong hair we can still do some things on the surface and that’s why people have tried moisturizing their scalp and hair already from the long past. Today we are in a really convenient situation because we just go online and order what we need while our ancestors gained their ointments and creams mainly from plants making them by hand. In this post I write about castor oil given it was used already in ancient times and not only later, in lamps. 😉

Castor oil in hair care

What is castor oil?

It is a colourless, odourless and tasteless vegetable oil originated from castor been seed. Its native countries are in Africa and India.

 

What is it used for?

In ancient Egypt castor oil was probably used not only in lamps but for ointments too. There are many possible ways of using this oil. The most common fields are:

  • Pharmaceutical industry: Castor oil is used in several medicines and known for its anti-bacterial properties.
  • Manufacturing sector: This oil is a component for producing different kinds of products like soaps, paints, varnishes and more… and used even in food industry as an additive or a coating material.
  • Skin care: Castor oil can help you to make your skin more beautiful given it can do a lot about cleaning, moisturizing, nourishing, soothing irritation and softening the skin. That is the reason for using it in creams and as a moisturizer  as well.

Castor oil: the useful ingredient

Castor oil in hair care

Castor oil is used also in hair care products because it is very effective to prevent split ends and fixing dryness. The hair treated with castor oil looks silkier, more shiny and healthy. In case of applying it on the scalp as well it can help to get rid of dandruff and other hair-related problems. With the Vitamin E and the proteins it contains this oil can help to reduce hair fall too. Nevertheless always keep in mind that even such natural ingredients can have side effects so whenever you try any new products show your body attention.

My experience is using a hair care product with castor oil is a good choice if you want to do something for the beauty and health of your hair. The product I advise is a quality hair mask containing castor oil and a special innovative smoothing agent called CS7. This product can penetrate the hair shaft and triple the strength of damaged hair in a really short time. Feel free to check an innovative product on the original webpage or contact me at info@yourbeautyhair.co.uk if you would be happy about paying a better price. 😊

Do you want smooth and silky hair?

Temporary and permanent ways of hair straightening

Curly hair is one of the hairstyles being in fashion in 2018 , nevertheless there are many of us suffering with hair straightening on a daily basis. One of the reasons of doing it can be the fact that curly hair is often difficult to handle but sometimes we are just not satisfied with the person who we are. Girls with curly hair do everything to straighten it while girls with smooth hair want it to be frizzy. So we always want something else.

Curly hair or hair straightening

Today the technic are in continuous change and hair care or hair styling are not exceptions from this either. It means that there more and more ways to have the desired kind of hair. As far as I see perm is widely known while permanent hair straightening has relatively new techniques. So if you dream about smooth and silky hair what is easy to manage you have more possibilities to reach the look you’d love. The way you should choose depends on how often do you want to care about this procedure.

For temporary results:

After washing and conditioning your hair just dry it with a blow dryer while pull your mops of hair with a round brush. When it is dried you can use a good quality flatiron to straighten your hair. To reduce any damages apply some heat protector on your hair (but not on your scalp) before using a flatiron and choose the right heat settings. With this technic you will need to repeat this procedure after every single shampoos and even if you are really careful your hair can be damaged.

You can also have long and smooth hair

For permanent results:

If you are fed up with spending hours in the bathroom day after day you can try a chemical solution. These techniques will last for months. Following ones are the most common:

Brazilian straightening (Keratin treatment): This treatment can be a solution from loose to coarse curls but often tried even by ladies having smooth hair given it’s said to be a non-damaging treatment that can give back the health of ones hair and make it smooth and shiny within 2-3 hours. The result lasts for months without changing the structure of hair.

Japanese straightening: This solution is for loose or medium curls. The process itself can lasts for long hours depending on the strength and length of the hair. Sometimes it means 7-8 hours. The results are permanent given it changes the structure of your hair. It also means that after this treatment you will not be able to make any curls in your hair. Not even with curling iron. As hair grows you will need to go for a touch-up.

You can also have straight hair

Relaxer: The third way of permanent straightening I am writing about can help tight, coarse curls so for this process harsh chemicals are applied on hair. After this treatment your hair will be smooth and you can easily handle it. You can even make curls later if you want because your hair will be able to hold it but you will need a new treatment as your hair grows.

Given there are pros and cons for each way you need to think your expectations through and make a considered decision. Weather you choose some of these ways to straighten your hair or just get satisfied with the beauty you were born with it is really crucial to take good care of your hair.
