5 Ways to Keep Your Hair Healthy!

What are 5 Ways I can keep my hair healthy?

1. Eat Protein

Including protein in your daily diet will allow your hair to grow back faster and healthier. Since your hair is made up of proteins eating eggs, chicken, fish, or even beans if your vegetarian.

2. Relax

Stress can and will cause your hair to fall out. So things like walking, running, riding a bike, and even sitting down and just watching a T.V. show. All of this can help destress and keep your hair from falling out.

3. Get Regular Haircuts

Getting regular trims gets rid of those nasty split ends that stop your air from growing. Just go to your local salon and get a haircut and this will help your hair grow long and healthy. The ideal time to get haircuts is a month to 6 weeks.

4. Be Nice to Your Noggin

This is a no brainer but its still a very important part of having nice hair. Don’t brush your hair more than you have to. Don’t use blow dryers and straighteners or very hot water all of this can destroy the proteins in your hair and cause your hair to take damage.

5. Use Organic Products as Much as Possible

Using all organic products will keep your hair healthy and wont cause any damage to your hair like those other nasty chemical filled shampoos and conditioners. Getting a product that is sulphate free and all organic is one step closer to getting that beautiful hair that you’ve always wanted.

How do i keep my hair frizz free?

iA lot of people ask how do i keep my hair from getting frizzy in this hot humid weather.

Well here are a few ways to keep that frizz under control in the summer heat!

1. Always use a conditioner, but not to often.

Keeping your hair moisturized allows it to lock in moisture instead of letting moisture in which is the cause of the frizz. Look for a conditioner with a high amount of glycerin this will keep the frizz away. Apply the conditioner from mid length down and avoid your roots. This will prevent the oily feel you get when it is put in your roots. Also, instead of conditioning your hair every day skip a day or two this will prevent your hair from getting oily.

2.Let your hair air dry, then blow dry

Letting your hair air dry doesn’t disturb the natural strand as its drying. This allows it to lay right prevent the frizzy look you getting when you blow dry right away. When you get out of the shower pat your hair or put it up. Be gentle being rough with your hair will cause breakage creating split ends.

3. Get a sulfate free shampoo

Find a sulfate free shampoo this will help you with just keeping your hair healthy in general. These types of shampoo even keep the color in your hair even better. You can find a sulfate free shampoo at any of our three locations or just in any type of organic store.

How do i make my hair look glossy?

Here are a few tips and tricks to make your hair have a more glossy look.

1.Use a clarifying shampoo.

Your hair can get full of dirt and grime surprisingly quick. Using a clarifying treatment will thoroughly clean your hair and take out all the chlorine, salt, and dirt. Using a clarifying shampoo once a week will cleanse your hair and take all the nasty stuff out of it. Using one too much will also take the good stuff out of your hair. But overall a clarifying shampoo can improve how glossy and healthy your hair looks which is great.

2. Skip the sprays and use the argan oil.

Argan oil will reduce frizz and give you the glossy look you are looking for. Sprays contain mica a mineral that roughens up your hair and causes your hair to work against the natural gleam. These sprays do give you a great short term shine but in the long term it destroys your hair.

3. Use a natural bristle brush

People say using any brush is ok for your hair, but everybody’s hair is different and most people require a different brush then the normal run of the mill brush. Some people might want to use a natural bristle brush. This brush will distribute the oils from your roots to the rest of your hair. This will allow your hair a more glossy and healthy look and also boost overall growth.

4.Use a overnight mask for your hair.

I know it sounds weird a mask for your hair how does that work? Well its pretty simple put some coconut oil in your hair and a towel on your pillow and go to sleep and this will apply the oils your hair craves while your sleeping. This will make your hair shiny and glossy and its also very very very easy. So just do it: apply, sleep, wake up and you look beautiful.

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.

Regular Massage Sessions Benefit You!

Massages: How Often should I Get Them?

Once people discover the many joys and benefits of massage, a common question arises — “How often should I schedule my massage sessions?” Of course, there is no set answer, but studies indicate that massage at regular intervals is most beneficial to your overall health.

Regular massages help with pain management.  At Intuition Salon & Spa St. Pete and Intuition Salon & Spa Clearwater our therapist can concentrate on stiff muscles and specific problem areas, loosening them and increasing blood circulation. This temporarily relieves pain from sports injuries, arthritis and other conditions.

Regular massages are an effective stress- management technique. Stress is often caused by being over-committed and overwhelmed with home, work and family obligations. A weekly or bi-weekly massage forces you to take time out for yourself for a pleasurable, relaxing activity.

Another 5 Hair Myths Answered!

Here are another 5 hair myths proven wrong!

1. If you have greasy hair skip conditioning

This is totally false. Your hair gets greasy because too much sebum is being produced from the tissues of the scalp. Instead of skipping the conditioning try a clarifying treatment like clarpHx.

2. The sun is the best way to lighten your hair.

True it can lighten your hair but it is not healthy. Just like how the sun burns your skin it burns your scalp. which causes damage to your hair and head. Instead of letting the sun damage your scalp use an all organic lifting cream. This will lighten your hair instead of letting the sun do it for you.

3. Lather, rinse, then repeat

You shouldn’t have to repeat while shampooing. If there is a lot of product being used or an huge amount of buildup then you should. But most of the time you shouldn’t. Use a mild shampoo this will eliminate irritation. Also lather gently to avoid breakage.

4. Sleeping with your hair down will make it grow faster

This is not true. It is usually recommended when thinning or hair loss is occurring. This is recommended because when sleeping with your hair up it causes tension which can pull hair out of your head. If you prefer to have your hair up then wear a loose ponytail. A loose ponytail can eliminate extra breakage and hair loss.

5. Your eyebrows need to match your hair color

The current trend is stating your eyebrows should be darker than your hair. But this isn’t always the case. Most of the time your hair color does not match your eyebrows. This is purely based on genetics and whether or not you get them colored.

3. Why is my hair oily at the roots?

People ask why are my roots oily. They might be oily because of frequent shampooing and conditioning at the roots. When you shampoo try to do it infrequently.
