Hair accessories for kids

Hair bows for the little ones

During winter days a lot of us prefer wearing a hat even if it makes hair styling almost impossible. Anyway some hats can make your appearance more characteristic. It can show you more sporty or more elegant depending on the type of the hat you choose. As the weather gets better and we put down these articles of clothing we may consider bringing some colour into grey days and wear some hair accessories. It’s not a really new thing, they had their special role throughout the history, too. Different types of accessories from  various materials were to show social class, age or even religiousness. And not only for women. From the quiet wide range of such products, in this post I write about hair bows for little ones.

Hair bows were very popular for both genders in the past. Now they’re mainly worn by little girls.

Hair bows

Hair bows are mainly worn by pretty little girls now but it wasn’t like this in the past. It was really popular among both genders in the 17th and 18th century. In Europe it was worn also by kings and court members. Popularity continued in the 19th century but the 20th century was already a little different. Hair bows needed a few decades’break to come back again from around 1940. Of course there is some practical line in using hair bows but it’s mainly about adornment. Maybe that’s the reason of loosing its popularity among adult ones. Now we try to live a practical life, to arrange all the necessary things, do our best at work and try to be a good parent and wife. Maybe in this rushing life we are not open to see the beauty and fun of life.

We’ve grown up and try to see things as they are. And hair bows doesn’t seem to fit grey weekdays and not adult
appearance. I’ve heard too many times to grow up and stop doing (wearing) childish things. Maybe you, too. Well, I still like the women who are brave enough to wear hair bows. But now let’s get back to hair bows for the little ones.

I decided to write about this topic because I had a really strange experience. I just heard someone talking about how unfair it is to dress a little girl in girlish clothes with girlish accessories, just like hair bows. Some people think, it will show that child only the importance of the outfit and force her to follow society’s expectations without exploring her gender . Later I read also about gender neutral parenting. It’s a real thing followed by a lot of people. Of course it’s not my goal to say what is good and what is wrong. I wouldn’t even judge any point of views but this post is probably not valuable at all for you if you support gender neutral thoughts. I’m happy to see that children are still able to dream and believe.

A little girl doesn’t like a girlish hair bow only because of society. She doesn’t even know what society is. If she loves hair bows and likes to wear them, it’s honest. And why should you say no when she would like to explore herself this way, with hair bows for the little ones.

I’m sure… we all have experienced that hair is vulnerable in general. A child’s hair is even more sensitive. That’s why it’s important to choose hair accessories especially for children. Have a look at these ones:

AnaGain for hair growth

Hair growth products with Anagain

Since I’ve been searching for a little more information about hair growth products, I found a lot of „miracles”. Also some special ones. The ones I could also believe in. I wrote one of them in my previous post, hair care with CBD.  Today’s special one is Anagain. Given I din’t know any plant with this name I made a little search on internet. I didn’t even know if it was a natural ingredient or something synthetic. Well, I wouldn’t say that it’s easy to find a plenty of information about this component. For me it seems to be still something new but already award-winning. Hair growth products with Anagain seem to work…

Anagain in hair care. On Your Beauty Hair
Have you ever thought about peas related hair growth?

The born of Anagain

We are able to use this component thanks to Mibelle Biochemistry. It’s a Swiss company with the aim of developing high-quality, naturally derived actives. Their cosmetic ingredients are available in more than fifty countries. Anagain is just one of their several products for hair care. (Not to talk about other categories.) In 2014 Anagain won the Advanced Ingredient Award in Paris.

Anagain for hair growth is from Switzerland
Switzerland. Always remember chocolate and AnaGain.

What is Anagain at all?

And can you trust in hair growth products with Anagain? This active ingredient is made from just a few days old organic pea sprouts. So it’s natural and given I prefer avoiding artificial components I was happy when I read it. Young pea sprouts are high in nutrients and isoflavone. And the key is said to be in isoflavone which can have a positive effect on hair growth. It can prolong its life cycle and restore the vitality of hair. Of course Mibelle Biochemistry made tests as well. You can have a closer look at Mibelle Biochemistry’s publication here. 

AnaGain is an award-winning active ingredient to make your hair healthier and thicker.

What products are there with AnaGain?

Based on the information I found, this active ingredient is specially for hair and used in such products:

  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Scalp mask
  • Thickening serum
  • Supplement capsules
  • Moisture treatment
  • Scalp treatment

Given the fact that women and men are also involved in hair loss and thin hair, Anagain is not just „something again for the beauties” who cares a little more about appearance than usual. Hair growth products with Anagain can give real solutions to both gender. I’m not a scientist so I wouldn’t say that I fully understand the process behind but I have always prefered choosing natural solutions. I don’t think it would make a significant change after just a few application but I do believe that regular usage can help to get back balance which is a very good base for healthy hair growth. It’s said to be effective after three months’ usage.

CBD in hair care

Hair growth products with CBD oil

Maybe you agree with me if I say that CBD oil is one of the most exciting thing now on the beauty market. The buzz about it is not surprising. Some people welcome this change while others think it to be harmful and dangerous. Maybe it’s because of the incomplete knowledge. We can easily judge something by the cover. In this case some people think it’s toxic because it’s derived from a plant being toxic. The reason I write about it is the fact that hair care is also involved. Some hair salons have built this kind of offers into their services and companies are also trying to feed the new demand by developing new products. Hair growth products with CBD oil.

Your Beauty Hair about CBD products. Sales of CBD products skyrocketed and expected to keep growing.
Sales of CBD products skyrocketed and expected to keep growing.

What is CBD oil?

CBD oil is not equal to Cannabis, Marijuana or Hemp. Moreover these three things are not the same either. Cannabis Sativa is the family, Marijuana and Hemp derive from. These two plants have a different appearance and chemical compositions. The component to make you high is THC what is in Marijuana. CBD, what is a short name for cannabidiol comes from Hemp and will not change your state of mind. Thinking about my own pieces of information after reading about this topic in the first times, I was confused as well. Why? Because of a small but very important difference in the names of cannabidiol and cannabinoid. CBD and THC are both cannabinoids (two from more than a hundred) but only CBD is cannabidiol. I just simply mixed them and it made me feel kind of helpless before.

Are you more curious? Read the blog post “CBD and how it works in our bodies” or watch the video included…

Is CBD harmful or safe

Given I’m not an expert I cannot make unquestionable claims about it. Studies are ongoing to know more about its side-effects and benefits as well. Nevertheless in 2018 FDA approved the usage of CBD as a therapy. Unlike THC from Marijuana, CBD is not psychoactive and the (World Health Organization declared it not to cause harm. (2017) Some believe that CBD can have an effect on some receptors in the body and make a good influence on the immune system.

Hair growth products with CBD oil

Let’s get back to hair care now. Not only hair salons started to use this ingredient but there are more and more CBD infused products on the market as well. So what can this oil can do for our hair ? Why can we suppose any positive effects on hair and scalp after using this oil?

You can buy different kinds of products with CBD oil and hair care products are not exceptions either.
  • It’s said to contain a lot of Vitamin A, E and C. These antioxidants can support the health of your hair.
  • It’s rich in fatty acids, like (but not only) Omega 3 and Omega 6. They can make your hair hydrated.
  • It can be a good source of calcium, magnesium and potassium. Important nutrients to keep overall health and support hair growth.
  • The amino acids in the oil can help to prevent hair breakage and maintain a natural texture.
  • Massaging it into scalp can improve blood circulation.

If you would like to try a shampoo with this ingredient, Hempson organic shampoo could be a good choice. It’s sulphate and paraben free.

As I see hair growth products with CBD oil can create favourable conditions for hair growth. With the vitamins, fatty and amino acids it can support also your scalp and healthy scalp is the beginning of beautiful hair.

If you like using natural oils, you may be interested in a shampoo with CBD oil.

Is it legal?

In the United Kingdom CBD is not controlled under the Misuse of Drugs Act and products with this oil can be sold legally. It’s true only with a maximum 0.2% THC content as described in the article of BBC News. 

After all… I’m open to your feedback and don’t hesitate to contact me if you have some questions or suggestions. What is your opinion about such products? Have you ever tried them? Or would you consider buying hair care products with CBD oil? If you still prefer to choose another natural solution remember following oils:

Find the product you would try:

 

The aim of this post is sharing the information I’ve collected because I find these products really exciting. Always keep in mind that hair problems can show other health issues so it’s always better to ask for a doctor’s help if it’s not any getting better.

Writting this post about hair growth products with CBD oil I used information also from the webpages below:

Hair care and new year’s resolutions

How to make a change

First welcome in my first post of 2019 and let me wish you a happy new year. I hope you had a great last year and you could spent your holidays with your family and friends. After this enchanting period of time we have to get back to every day routine but with some new energy. Most of us make some resolutions for the new year and start January with plans and dreams. It’s great to think through what we achieved till now and realise that the chance is here for us to do what we haven’t done yet. A lot of resolutions are about being healthier or looking prettier. And not only because this is a webpage about hair care… some decide to try new hair styles or new technic, new colours or maybe another colour for every quarter year following seasons’s trends. Whatever you decided to achieve in 2019 staying healthy is one of the key ingredients to make it happen and health is a lot more than smooth skin or shiny hair. And it takes time to build healthy habits.

Set new goals for the new year

On the other hand I know there’s a lot of people who don’t make resolutions any more. Not because they wouldn’t be happy about some changes but because of all those wrong experiences through the years when they still dared to dream. But nothing happened later. A few weeks, maybe months went away and they continued with old habits. It’s like being disappointed of ourselves what leads to some kind of fear. It’s like being afraid of making resolutions again because we failed to keep them so many times before. I’ve learned it’s not our fault. They have never taught us how to set goals. It’s not only about knowing what you want. It’s not only about asking from the Universe to create the path. It’s not only about having positive thoughts. Setting goals and reaching your dreams is a hard work. Like it or not…it will not just happen.

Your dreams will not just happen.

You have made some new year’s resolutions or not I do encourage you to make some changes if you are not happy with your life. Not because of the new year. You can make such a decision any time of the year. I know saying is easy, changing is hard. But I do believe there are some ways to help yourself.  Maybe you’ve heard the things listed below too many times but they helped me so they can work for you, too. Today is always the best day to start something new so don’t wait too much.

 

  • Just sitting by the window with a hot chocolate while calm piano music is in the background is not just waste of time. In these moments you can forget every day rush and listen to yourself for a while. It’s essential because you cannot reach your goals if you don’t even know exactly what they are. You can set goals that will not make you happy or ones that are not likely to achieve but if you want a better life you need to find your why. There are different ways for different personal types to calm down. Find yours and you can create the chance to see your why.
  • Once you’ve found your reasons and your goals are clear, write them down. Not only the final goals. Make small steps like a monthly plan. It doesn’t mean you cannot do it in another way. Well, usually you need to be flexible and change them several times but these small steps will make you work for your dream constantly.
  • Make that board for your dreams and imagine yourself when you already reached what you want. If you have such a board it will not just make it more clear and concrete but will make you remember every single day.

Listen to yourself to find your why.

Just three simple steps but you can do a lot for your future by following them. It’s perfect if you write down everything in a simple exercise book but you can also choose something more professional and more organized. If so have a look at
Tool 4 wisdom planner. Two very popular new year’s resolutions are living more healthy and being more fit or beautiful. Doing some exercises or loosing some weight also requires planning and persistent work from you. Even if you would like to have healthier hair in the next year you have to think your hair care habits through. If you found what you want to change you should plan the way.   Instead of changing everything at a time define 1 task for every 1-2 months. If you want healthier hair. The picture below is just an example. It’s always up to your goals and the conditions you already have but it shows the necessary gradualism. Making something new your habit takes time. Change just a little, get used to it and move on to the next step. You can decide to change everything from day one but in this case it’s more likely to give up in the first 6 weeks. Most of us want results soon, or rather immediately but be patient and give time for yourself. Without patience you just jump from one way to another, try everything but never find „your one” because you cannot give the sufficient time for any method. Slow down, be patient and enjoy all the beauty around you as long as you get what you’re working for.

Define small steps to reach your goal.

I wish you big dreams, great plans and wonderful results in 2019. Just like before, I’m open to your opinions and feedback at info@yourbeautyhair.co.uk.

Winter hair care

Prevent winter hair problems


Since we’ve been over Halloween and have stepped into December everything is about Christmas. This is my favourite period during winter and I’m sure I’m not alone with this feeling. I can’t wait visiting Christmas markets with those wonderful lights and delicious foods and drinks. Nevertheless besides all the festive fun and preparations we have to remember that also our skin and hair need special care during the coldest season. We have to protect our hair and scalp from cold and its effects. Otherwise you can face one (or more) of the following hair problems:

  • Hair loss
  • Thinner hair
  • Oily hair
  • Dry, itchy scalp
  • Dandruff
  • Static hair
  • Split ends

Protect your hair from cold weather.

Hair loss and thinner hair is a typical problem because when the temperature is too low the circulatory system of our body gets less efficient. It means also hair follicles get less oxygen and nutrients. Using hot tools also matters a lot. I don’t really like using hair dryers so I usually just let my hair dry but in winter I often use it. And the result can be even more dry hair and split ends. For protection against cold the most of us choose to wear hats, while others prefer not to wear them because it can make hair oily. I don’t like feeling cold so I’m in the first type but I did experienced its bad effects as well. As far as I see it’s very important to choose the right hat. It is better to avoid too tight ones because they can reduce the airing of your hair and scalp. In my opinion the best decision is buying one that’s made of natural material. If you want to do more for the health and beauty of your hair think about nutrition and vitamins as well. Besides drinking less in winter we eat less vitamins, too. So it’s really important to have a balanced diet. Nutritional supplements can help you to provide the sufficient vitamins and hair masks can prevent split ends. Prevention is the main goal. When the ends are already split, only a hair cut helps.

Protect your hair from cold in winter.

Try to avoid using hot tools too often but still remember not to go to bed with wet hair. Hot tools can make your hair and scalp dry but you run the risk of scurfy scalp if you don’t let them dry before you go to sleep. And maybe it looks strange to put oily hair and dry hair in the same list but both of them is a real problem. Well, to share some experience of my own I used to face both problems in the same time. Given I wear hat when it’s too cold I have to shampoo more frequently because the roots get oily really soon. In the meantime the ends are dry and get brittle very easily because of the cold weather and less nutrients.  And about shampoo … rinsing with hot water can make your hair dry, too. So at the end of my hair wash procedure I rinse my hair with cooler water instead of too warm (just cooler but not cold because that can make hair static) and I decided to use hair masks only for the ends.

Winter hair care is not that simple but there are ways to cut bad effects of cold weather and keep your beautiful locks during winter. Don’t forget the right hat, a hair mask and a balanced diet.

An experience of a first try of henna

Trying henna together

I think all people who have ever tried hair colouring already heard about henna, too. But hearing or reading about it doesn’t equal with trying. You may feel that trying henna at home can be something like a challenge. If you have ever read about it you know that it will get messy and getting the desired colour may take you long hours with the mixture on your hair. To be honest I think these are the reasons why a lot of women choose „normal” dyes. They are much more simpler. You can find an hour for it even if you’re busy. You can go to a salon or you can even invite a friend to make it for you while you both talk about all the week’s stories with each other. Why not, it’s fun. Nevertheless there’s still some really important benefits about henna. It’s natural with no chemicals so it’s worth a try for sure.

Henna's benefit is having no chemicals

This post is rather sharing some experience with you about henna instead of just listing a few facts. After collecting some pieces of information my friend decided to try it and share this „adventure” with me. Some people make fast decisions while others think longer about making a change. Regarding hair colour, I think it’s always better to think it through twice.  If it’s henna, the reason is the fact that you cannot just switch to „normal dyes” after using it if you prefer another colour with less mess. So – get back to us – the decision was made, the dye was bought and we were ready for having fun.

Given we read kind of scary opinions about elbow-grease work of breaking henna bricks into pieces we chose powder for the first try. Also read about several natural ingredients that can be added to the dye like lemon, beetroot, coffee, tea, olive oil, egg and many more (It could be another, separate post) and we decided to make a mixture with lemon, beetroot and some tea. We didn’t do anything special in advance, I mean no mixture was made the day before. We used the cream almost immediately. Have I told you it was fun? Look at the nasty smiling face in the bowl:

Making the henna mixture

So we tried to make the bathroom prepared and my friend didn’t forget about using some cream on her forehead, back of the neck, ears and also along the hairline. She wanted to avoid coloured spots on her skin for sure. Later it came out that it was a really good and effective act. Okay, so all was fine, rubber gloves were on and we were ready to make it. We didn’t succeed with applying henna with a hair dye brush so we switched to applying with hands very early.  Comparing the mixture with „normal” hair dyes it seemed to be less spreadable and a little dryer. (Maybe we didn’t catch the perfect percentages about the ingredients for the first time.) Well, small pieces of henna were all around the bathroom and my friend said to have a scary feeling after applying the dye. She had the impression that her hair will dry with the mixture and it’ll be like an old bough and can break into pieces at any time. Of course it didn’t happen.

We thought that we were very mindful about everything. Yes. Expect one little thing. We didn’t lock the bathroom door. Someone came in of course and turned out immediately with loud laughing. Another friend of us. Although he knew what was going on, he was not prepared to the view of strange and kind of suspicious spots all around the bathroom. After this shock … we covered her hair with a plastic firm then used also a towel to prevent even more pieces of hair dye anywhere and get prepared to the rest of the day (and night) with some snacks ’nd films together.

The mixture was on her hair for about ten hours and washing it out takes quiet long time but the result was soft, shiny hair with a thicker texture. I can understand that traditional henna applications are done in groups because it’s a long procedure with a lot of mess. While making it together is fun.

First try of henna

I’ve got to tell that later I found different opinions about adding more ingredients to henna. Just for an example while some think coffee can make the colour darker, others say it to be false given there’s no dyeing agents in it. You can read even more about henna in this post.

An alternative way for hair dyeing

A little more about henna

I’ve been hearing the name Henna quiet often for many years now. That’s why I suppose there’s nothing new about this option of hair colour. Nevertheless I haven’t look any deeper into it so far. It happened that a friend of mine tried it recently for the first time so she gave me the idea to write about it a little more. What is Henna at all? Where does it come from? What is it made of? Is it all natural? Can you be sure that you do only good to your hair and scalp when you use it? How long we used it for this purpose? What other purposes can it be used. If you already know the answers for these questions you can stop and check another post. 😉 If not… stay with me and learn a little more about it together.

An alternative way of hair colour: henna.

What is it actually?

Okay. Henna is a dye, we’ve caught that already. Natural, made of a plant, that has been used for such purposes since ancient times. All the same it became so popular in the Western culture only in the last 50 years. It’s said that even Egyptian mummies’ hair was coloured with it. It has been used not only for hair dyeing but for skin decoration, too. In some countries it’s very popular to apply it before weddings. It symbolizes fertility and they believe it can help about having a happy family. The dye itself is made of Lawsonia inermis. Maybe you have heard about henna tree or Egyptian pivet. Well, these are different names for the same plant that is growing originally in Africa, South-Asia and North-Australia.

Henna has been used since ancient times

How can it be used?

Lawsonia inermis holds lawsone what is the reason of the usability in colouring the skin, hair, nails or other materials that contain protein but only after mashing it. The whole leaves will not help you about staining. In regions where it grows they make a dry powder from it then add some liquid. Some essential oils – like tea tree or lavender – are able to make colouring more effective while others – like eucalyptus – are better to avoid because of skin irritation. If you decided to try henna you are in a simpler situation. You don’t need to make any mixtures because ready blocks are available on the market.

Henna can be mixed with essential oils

What hair colour can I have after using henna?

The result depends on the original colour of your hair but this solution is for you mainly if you dream about some tone of red. The lightest can be similar to orange and the darkest is auburn. I suppose you disagree now if you have ever checked it on the internet. Maybe you saw such dyes for blond or even black hair. This is true but those are not pure Henna. The colouring agent is not lawsone but other natural dyes. In some cases chemicals. I have always prefered natural solutions nevertheless keep in mind that there are experiences to claim that this solution will not completely cover grey hair and keep the highlights you had before colouring.

Henna is natural and keeps your highlights

Is it all natural?

My opinion is that as long as you don’t live in a region where it’s grown and mixed you cannot be 100 percent sure. Unfortunately. It’s possible that you paid for henna dye but you got a product with another colouring ingredient. As long as these other ingredients are still natural – like cassia obovata – it shouldn’t cause a problem but some products can contain metal salts or chemicals. They can cause itching or allergic reactions. It’s better to be careful because you can find products with the name Henna although they don’t even contain it. The best example is neutral henna which is not even a dye but still a really good option as a conditioner. Or black henna which sounds really good. We could think: Finally there’s some healthy solution for black hair but you need to think it twice because of a possible extra ingredient, coal-tar. It contains PPD which can cause even lifelong problems.

And now you can tell about some companies who promise you to have black hair with Henna and still in a healthy way. Well, real henna will never turn your hair black. These products are indigo-based and safe but calling them henna is a mistake. These names can be confusing if one doesn’t read a little more about this topic. Choosing this option to have black hair is a good decision as long as it’s indigo-based. Clicking here you can read more about Clicking here you can read more about how can you achieve black hair with only natural solutions.

In case you want to use natural solutions as many parts of your life as possible you can do it also about hair colour.  I wouldn’t say that applying henna is as simple and fast as other dyes but keeping your health is a big thing. But what if after trying it you feel that it’s not for you? There are different opinions about using „normal” dyes after henna. Because of these opposite opinions I would suggest to wait as long as your hair grows out this natural dye.

What’s hair care got to do with Halloween?

Halloween, the scariest autumn celebration

I wrote about autumn hair colours in my posts lately and I didn’t even realise that we are getting really close to Halloween.  Well, the plan was writing about more autumn colours but I get a little deeper into historical facts and strange beliefs about red hair and it made me remember about the last night of October. In the past redheads were said to be witches and witch costumes are really popular this crazy night so I decided to write my next post about Halloween, the scariest autumn celebration. And what’s hair care got to do with Halloween? On the last night of October not only the kids go to the streets every year but adults go out to different kinds of parties with frightening costumes and amazing make-up.

Your Beauty Hair about Halloween

Hair is also involved because hair style or hair colour is often an important part of their scary appearance. Ones prefer wigs while others choose hair dyes that can easily be washed out after the party. And some people like to keep the new hair colour so we are all looking for different solutions. These are my reasons to write about hair care now that we are getting close to Halloween.

Briefly about Halloween 

The word itself is a contraction of All Hallow’s Evening. It’s celebrated in several countries though in different ways. In my home country this period of the year has a quiet different mood. It’s not really about having fun or going to scary parties. It’s rather about remembering our loved ones we had lost. Although there are more and more Halloween parties every year, the main demand in shops is still not about Halloween sweets or scary costumes. Families go to the cemetery together with flowers and candles. It’s the celebration of all Saints and all Souls. In Anglo-Saxon countries the last day of October is for celebrating the witches, vampires and ghosts. It’s based on Celtic and pagan traditions. The ancients believed that the border between the living and the dead is the thinnest this night and the ghosts of the dead can return to earth.  The celebration is not only about scary costumes but scary house and garden decorations, too. And what is this big hype about Halloween, the scariest autumn celebration? It was believed that creating cold and frightening surroundings and wearing scary costumes can help to ward off ghosts.

Halloween mood on Your Beauty Hair

During Halloween you can forget every day’s routine for a while and open your mind to something special and magical. Choose a costume and keep away as many ghosts as possible. 😉 If you are a redhead you are one step ahead. You can wear one of the most popular costumes and scary the night as a witch given there have always been some strange beliefs about red hair. But maybe you want to make a full transformation and you’re open to wear a wig or ready to hair dyeing.

Should I choose a wig?

Wigs are really popular during Halloween. I suppose it’s because of its simplicity. Wearing it you can avoid temporary or permanent hair dying. Even if you regularly colour your hair it’s possible that you don’t want to use any chemicals just because your Halloween costume requires another hair colour or style. So spend some time with checking the product range, from your home if you like, then just put it on within a few minutes when time has come. If you want a solution with immediate result that lasts only till the second you want it, wigs are for you. It’s also a really good solution if your hair is not suitable for the desired hair style.

Wash out hair dyes and hair chalks

Such hair dyes are also popular mainly in bright and striking colours. You can easily apply hair sprays and get rid of the brave colour before going back to school or work. 😉 Some people don’t like to wear a wig and hiding their own hair. Some say wigs are too warm and I’ve heard complaints about itchy scalp, too. If you have ever experienced any of the mentioned or you think it’s better to avoid them and just wanna have fun on the last night of October these hair sprays or hair chalks can be good options. Another good point about them is the fact that you can mix the colours. Dream your unique Halloween hair and make it. If you dreamt about bright or various colours hair sprays are for you. My favourite is Qivange Hair Chalk Pen Set because I love its bright colours.

Hair accessories

If you want neither wigs nor hair dyeing you still can have a cool hair style with wearing Halloween hair accessories. Here are my favourite ones:

Hair colours to try this autumn 2.

The magic behind red hair

If you feel you need some change red hair colour is also an option to try this autumn. In this post I’m gonna write about this colour but from another point of view. It’s not really about different shades to choose but that special something I –and I think many others, too – have always felt about redheads. In the primary school I had a schoolmate with natural red hair and I always looked at her with wonder in my eyes (and thoughts). She was the only one with this hair colour so I found her really special and unique. As a child I have always felt to be some magic behind her red hair and to be honest I still have this feeling as an adult. Maybe it’s because of the fact that natural red hair is not that common. Actually less than 2 percent of people are born with red hair. It’s defined by our genes and it’s possible that you have this gene nevertheless only your child or grandchild will have this magical hair colour because a person needs two copies of that gene to show up. Well, there is the chance to see if you carry this gene or not thanks to some DNA test.

There is some magic about red hair

Today’s beauty industry is really huge. It’s able to solve so many problems and to fulfill so many wishes that any of us can choose whatever hair colour we like. It’s up to what we want and you certainly have several different options to colour your hair. Colour it red and take part of the magic behind red hair. Today’s huge product range gives us the chance the make some influence on our appearance that has been so desired since ancient times. As far as I see all shades of red are special but some of them are so striking that you need to be brave to wear them.

Tones of red hair

Well, it’s the fact that there’s some magic around this hair colour. There are unbelievable stories in history and mythology about redheads but unfortunately being special and unique doesn’t always bring positive things with itself. Ones usually look distrustfully at people who are different. And natural red hair is really rare. In the past people found this hair colour so strange that correlations were drawn between red hair and some negative power and witchcraft. Here are some examples for different beliefs about redheads. They also shows there is some magic behind red hair.

  • In Ancient Egypt red heads were offered to Osiris for a better harvest. What did it mean actually? To be burned alive. In the meantime there are some speculations to say that Cleopatra was red-haired, too.
  • Ancient Greeks believed that redheads are of bad characters and will become a vampire after death nevertheless even Achilles and Aphrodite were said to have red hair.
  • Romans…well… they had different belief. Red-haired slaves were really sought because they believed it meant better luck. Do you have any doubts about the magic behind red hair?
  • In the twelfth century Theopilus Presbyter made instructions to make gold and the blood of a redhead was an essential ingredient for that purpose.
  • Tens of thousands were sentenced between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries in Europe only because having this hair colour. They were caught by witch hunters.

  • Even today there are some cultures in Africa where redheads are said to be witches.
  • Scottish and Irish fishermen used to believe that spotting a red-haired woman make you unlucky and you’ll catch no fish.
  • Russians believe that no saints can have red hair. By the way they made the red-head festival for the third time this year. Just to celebrate all things red.
  • Polish superstition says if you spot three red-heads at the same time you’ll win the lottery.
  • I left conspiracy theories for last. Yes, there are some about red-heads, too. Some people think that red-heads are human-alien hybrids and they believe this is the reason of having so many red-haired kings and queens in the past.

Ones say that redheads are human-alien hybrids

I would say there are no other hair colour that is so special like red. I mean natural red. People have always had some strange opinions, sometimes fears about it whether it was good or bad. Centuries and empires built their own theories and beliefs about redheads. I suppose it’s because of the fact that we are afraid of different things. Rare things (like natural red hair) make us feel uncertain and suspicious so we create the magic behind them, the magic behind red hair.

Beliefs or superstitions, myths or conspiracy theories… I still do like red hair. For me it hasn’t lost any magic. I still stare and admire red hair. I would write natural red hair but you can find such quality products for hair dying today that you cannot be totally sure about a colour being natural or not. What do you think? Would you try a stunning, vibrant tone this autumn?
