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:

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 additives.

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 strengthening 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 sum 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 coconut 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 infections.

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 drops of tea tree 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.

Bangs and face shapes

Find the perfect bangs for you

In the previous post I gave you a few pieces of advice 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 strong 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. Cheekbones 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 cut 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 tapered 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
