hair health

Anyone who's colored their own hair has heard about this. It’s one of the most common problems we come across. It’s that annoying line of residue that gets left around your hairline. Here are our 5 tips to avoid getting this line in the first place...

1. Wear plastic gloves: This will keep your fingers and hands stain free.

2. Wrap a towel around your neck. Use a clip so it stays nice and tight: This prevents the dye  from running down your neck, causing unpleasant stains.

3. Apply a thick cream or petroleum jelly and coat the hairline. Imagine it as a wall of protection or barrier. Don’t forget to go around your ears too!

4. Wear a long sleeve shirt. You are better off covering as much skin as possible: This will protect your shoulders and arms.

5. If dye does drip onto your skin wipe it off IMMEDIATELY with hydrogen peroxide to prevent staining.

Frizzy hair is an annoyance to women everywhere. Hair becomes frizzy from a lack of moisture and oils, which are necessary hair health. When strands are dry, they become desperate for any moisture they can obtain. Because of this, the hair shaft tries to open up and find any ounce of moisture. This is why hair becomes extra frizzy in damp weather. Even though frizzy hair is frustrating, there are easy ways to prevent it, and it all starts in the shower.
When you wash your hair, use cold water! The cold water closes your hair cuticles and produces less frizz and more shine. Also, don’t wash your hair every time you shower because washing can strip the strands of essential oils. Both of these solutions are easy ways to help minimize frizz. If you've washed all of your natural oils away, try using Moroccan or Argan oil. After you shower, apply a small amount of the oil to your wet or damp hair before you blow dry and style. This will help to minimize your frizz, but be careful not to use too much! Too much oil will weigh your hair down and make it greasy.

For an easy at-home solution, apply an olive oil and egg mask. Combine 1/4 cup of olive oil and one raw egg and apply to your hair. Leave this in for thirty minutes and then rinse out with shampoo and conditioner in the shower. This treatment will help restore the vitamins that your hair has lost and will help make it stronger and shinier. If you’re experiencing frizz in the colder months, rub a dryer sheet against your hair.

Keep in mind, this only works to help tame your frizzy hair in the winter, but it is a quick and easy fix, even when you are on the go. With these simple solutions that you can execute in the comfort of your own home, you can prevent frizz in no time!
