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 does hair actually work?

We all have it (well, most of us!) but do we really know “How Does Hair Work”?

The hair starts in the root and forms with cells to make keratin. Keratin is what your hair is made out of. Then this hair that is made pushes up through the a follicle or a tunnel and replaces the old strand of hair. A blood vessel at the base of the hair feeds it and keeps the hair growing.

This process of regrowth is constantly happening because hair is always falling out. Around 100 strands of hair fall out of your hair everyday. This can be caused by brushing, combing, washing or even just sitting there.

How is That Hair Color Made?

Hair can come in many colors blonde,red,brown, black and many more. These colors are caused by melanin this is the pigment that makes the hair color you have. Black or brown hair contains more melanin then blonde or red hair. When your older you start to loose the melanin in your hair causing your hair to turn grey.

Take Care of Your Hair

Take care of your hair. Always wash it when you need to but not to much. Brush your hair once or twice a day. You do not want to brush to much this will cause unwanted damage to your hair.

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.

How do i Keep my Feet Healthy at Home?

Now not every person has the time and the money to go to a salon every single week for a pedicure. If you do have the money that’s great but, what if you don’t have the money? Or the time?

Here’s are a few tips to keep your feet healthy at home.

1. Keep your feet clean and dry

When you take a bath or shower scrub those feet. Leaving bacteria and dirt from your day can cause fungal infections. Always dry your feet well when getting out of the shower. Fungus lives off of moisture so leaving your feet wet is also another way to get that fungus that you don’t want.

2. Examine your feet for problems

Always keep a lookout for anything out of the ordinary on your feet. When drying off your feet after a shower look for scaling on the soles of your feet. And also in between your toes for peeling areas this could mean athletes foot. Take a good long look at your nails. Nail discoloration could mean foot fungus. If you have diabetes you will have to have a foot inspection problem everyday since you have a higher risk of foot sores and infections.

3. Cut your toenails properly

Just because your toenails are growing doesn’t mean you go willy nilly with the clippers and cut whatever you want. Cut your nails straight across and try to avoid near the edges and the skin this can cause painful ingrown nails.

4.Protect your feet

Try to wear shower shoes to the gym, school locker rooms and even the pool. These are breeding ground for foot fungus.

5. See a doctor

If you see a problem that consists like swelling, redness or discoloration. See a doctor do not try to treat it yourself this might make the problem worse. See a podiatric physician they can help with all your foot problems!

3 Ways to Keep Split Ends Away

What are 3 ways to keep split ends away?

What are split ends?

Split ends are damaged hair strands. This is caused by the hair drying out, being old and even using the wrong products. Split ends also know as trichoptilosis can travel up along the strand and hit the scalp completely destroying your hair. There are a few ways to prevent this like:

1. Regular trimmings

Regular trimmings at a salon will stop split ends from traveling up to you scalp and will eliminate the need for extra products to fix split ends. Getting a cut every 4-6 weeks can eliminate split ends.

2. Dry your Hair Gently

Drying your hair with an absorbent towel and dab the wet DO NOT vigorously dry your hair this will cause tangles in weird directions destroying your hair even faster than usual. This is because when your hair is wet it is fragile and can be damaged very easily.

3. Use a Wide Tooth Comb

When coming out of the shower use a wide tooth comb instead of a brush. This will decrease the likelihood of your hair getting stretched and broken when brushing. Using a comb will detangle it a lot safer and prevent stretching and breaking.
