5 Myths about Your Hair

Here are a few myths that you have been lead to believe: debunked

1. Gray hair is only caused by stress

Everyone says don’t stress out and don’t this or that and you will get grays but there wrong. Stress might accelerate the process but grays are actually caused by your hair dying. When your hair dies it releases melanin which is the pigment in the hair. No pigment means no color. Its not about how much stress your exposed to its mainly focused on your genetics. So when you get grays, blame your parents.

2. Plucking your grays will cause 2 more to grow

This is totally incorrect. The only thing plucking will do to your head is cause scarring. This scarring can cause thinning or patches of hair. So try to avoid plucking altogether this can cause more harm then good.

3. Hair grows faster when it trimmed

In reality the growth of your hair is completely dependent on the follicles or the roots of your hair. This is where the protein keratin is produced to create the growth of hair. Trimming your hair makes it appear thicker and longer. There is a plus to trimming though, trimming will get rid of the split ends and allow the ends of your hair look healthier and feel better.

4. Brushing your hair constantly is healthy for you

The key to brushing your hair is to distribute the oils in your hair. Brushing your hair a lot leads to breakage. This causes your hair to fall out. This can also cause your hair to look frizzy. So instead of brushing all the time brush a few times a day with a wide tooth comb or a brush with soft bristles.

5. Using the same shampoo over and over will cause it to stop working

Shampoo will act the same even if you use it everyday for years. If you use a lot of hot tools or you color your hair often you might want to use a more hydrating shampoo.

What Are Some tips to Keep my Hair Healthy?

Here are a few tips to keep your hair healthy and gorgeous.

1.  Do not wash your hair everyday

Instead of actually helping your hair this will cause it to dry out and weigh it down with product. The thicker and curlier the hair the less you have to wash it. If your hair is very oil try to find an everyday shampoo. An everyday shampoo contains less detergents which will not dry your hair out as easily.

2. Always use a conditioner after you shampoo.

This will provide moisture for your hair and also make it a lot easier to brush out.

3. Use a comb when you get out of the shower.

When your hair is wet it is more susceptible to damage because it is elastic and stretches. Instead of using a brush use a detangler and a wide tooth comb to get those knots out. Always always always make sure you start from the bottom and move your way up when combing or brushing your hair this will cause less damage.

4. Buy shampoo and conditioner that matches your hair type

Instead of using any old shampoo try to use something that suites you and is able to help your hair out.

5. Dry your hair the right way

Use a blow dryer sparingly. A blow dryer can cause your hair to dry out and you can end up with split ends instead use a towel. Do not roughly dry your hair with a towel pat the moisture out or buy a super absorbent towel to wrap around your head to dry.

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.
