Benefits of Getting Your HairCut!

What are some benefits of hair cuts? 

Getting your hair cut regularly reduces split ends in your hair. Split ends are caused when hair cuticles split making hair very small to the point where it is broken.

The only way to fix your hair is to get it trimmed. Trimming your hair every 6-8 weeks allows for you to eliminate split ends while keeping long, luscious hair.

What Does The Ionic Detox Foot Bath Look Like?

What is an Ionic Detox Foot Bath?

An Ionic Detox Foot Bath helps cleanse the body of most all toxins from everyday activities. These toxins have accumulated from breathing in the polluted air, eating less-than-healthy foods, and even just everyday germs.

How Does it work?

Hydrogen ions within the water are turned positive allowing the negative ions within your body (the toxins) to be pulled from inside the body to outside.  Basically this is the “opposites attract” rule.

This is a 30 minute process which can equal up to 2 hours of sweaty exercise in expunging toxic elements from your system.  Would you rather exercise for 2 hours or get a 30 Minute fDetox foot Bath?

Here is a Facebook live video showing the process of the foot detox!

Early Detection Problems

Pedicures are a great way to detect problems with your feet early on before they get serious. Corns, bunions and fungal infection are a lot easier to treat earlier on.

Decreases Chance of Infection

A pedicure is a easy way to get your feet cleaned and toenails trimmed. This will prevent your toenails from growing inwards and also prevents infections. Also the elimination of dirt and bacteria from under the toenails will prevent fungus and foot odor.

Preserves Skin Moisture

Moisturized feet prevent cracks, blisters or other foot problems. It also helps prevent nails from growing outwards and getting split ends.

Do Weekly Manicures Actually Help?

Can a Weekly Manicure Benefit You?

Weekly manicures allow your nails to stay healthy and look great all the time.  A manicure will allow your nails to stay moisturized and clean, as well as keeping your cuticles strong and healthy.

Regular manicures help to eliminate the possibility of nail disease often caused from the constant wear and tear of your fingernails.   Your fingernails are constantly exposed to outside elements and the only way to prevent this is to wear gloves … but who wants to wear gloves to the beach or on a date or anywhere for that matter!?

A regular manicure is also the time to get a hardening treatment for your nails, and allow for the nails to be trimmed, soaked, and the cuticles cleaned.   All of this will improve the health of your nails.

How Do I Keep my Hair Healthy After a Color?

Here are a few tips to keep your hair healthy and to keep that color from fading.

1. Ask your stylist to use the best conditioning hair color.

Ask your stylist to use a conditioning hair color. This will help keep your hair healthy while the color is in. Instead of spending extra money in the future use only high grade hair color. High grade hair color will keep your hair healthy and prevent future damage.

2. Red dye fades the fastest.

Red dyes fade the fastest. This is because of the molecule size of the color. This makes it more difficult for the color to penetrate the hair, making it fade a lot faster. If getting red make sure you shoot for the best quality red dye there is.

3. Shampoo less frequently.

If you don’t want your color to fade as fast, shampoo at least 2 to 3 times a week. Doing this will allow your hair to keep the natural oils it needs to hold the color. The more you wash your hair the more the natural oils come out meaning it the color will fade faster.

4. After color wait 2 days to shampoo.

Try to wait 2 days before shampooing your hair, if it is possible try to wait 3 to 4 days. This can and will allow for the color to set in your hair allowing it to stay in there longer.

5. Keep your hair dry when not shampooing.

When in the shower and not shampooing use a shower cap. Try to keep your hair dry. Keeping your hair dry when not shampooing will prevent it from fading.
