What Does a Foot Detox Look Like?

What is a Foot Detox?

Foot Detoxes cleanse the body of most all toxins from everyday activities. This toxins have accumulated from breathing in the polluted air, eating unhealthy, and even just everyday germs.

How Does a Foot Detox work?

Hydrogen ions within the water are turned positive allowing the negative ions within your body (the toxins) be pulled from inside the body to outside. Basically this is the opposites attract rule. This is a 30 minute process and can equal up to 2 hours of exercise. Would you rather exercise for 2 hours or get a 30 Minute foot detox?

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

How Does a Foot Detox Work?

How Does a Foot Detox Work?

An ionic foot detox turns the hydrogen in the water to a positive charge. This then allows the negative ions in your body to be pulled out of your body through your feet. These negative ions then cling to any metals or toxins in your body. This then gets pulled out of your body and vualah the toxins are gone.

To put this into simpler terms its like a magnet trying to find another magnet. The positive of the side is the water the negative side is in your body. Since opposites attract then the toxins are pulled out.

This process does not hurt nor will it injure you. If anything it will make you tired since it takes the toxins out of your body in 30 minutes. We do recommend more than one foot detox this will fully clean your system and make you feel a lot better.

3 foods for Healthier Skin

What Foods Can I Eat to Keep my Skin Healthy?

Here are 3 foods that can help achieve healthy skin!

1. Fatty Fish

Fatty fish like salmon are filled with omega 3 fat which are essential to maintain skin health. Omega 3 fat is essential for your skin to stay thick, supple and moisturized. These fats reduce inflammation which might be the cause of redness in the skin or acne. Eating this will bring that down and moisturize the skin.

2. Avocado

Avocados are high in healthy fats these fats are essential for your skins health. Studies have shown that the fats from avocados provide supple and springy skin. So why not eat some guacamole every once in a while it will help your skin.

3. Walnut

Walnuts are a good source of fatty acids. Fatty acids cannot be made by your body. They have the highest amount of omega 3 and omega 6 out of all nuts and both help reduce inflammation and bloating of the skin.

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 Straight?

Many people ask how do i keep my hair straight all day long?

Well here are a few tips to keep your beautiful hair straight!

1. Make sure your hair is dry before straightening it.

There are a lot of different types of hair straighteners. Some are designed for wet hair some are not. Chances are you have one that is meant for dry hair. So when you get out of the shower dry your hair with a towel till it is damp then blow dry. This will reduce damage with the individual strands of hair and also save you some time with the straightener your using.

2. Use a professional flat iron.

Sure they might be expensive in some cases but most of the time you wont have to spend to much for a good straightener. A professional hair straightener will evenly heat your hair and do what the cheaper hair straightener don’t do. This will help your hair and not allow for damage to certain parts of your hair. This will also help with the length of time it will last once your hair is straightened.

3. Use dry shampoo after styling.

Use a dry shampoo to reduce moisture buildup in the hair this will keep your hair straightened a lot longer then without a dry shampoo.

4. Stay away from moisture.

When done straightening your hair DO NOT use water based products. This will result in time wasted stay away from coconut milk. When going outside wear a hood or use an umbrella. Keep your hair away from moisture as long as possible to keep it straight.

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.

Can Organic/Natural Products Help Your Hair Grow?

There are so many products we are being told work the best and that are the only solution to all of our hair problems.

Organic/Natural Products

To put it simply Organic/Natural products do not have the sulfate, alcohol, silicone, parabens, and even traces of anti-freeze that artificial products have.

However, natural/organic hair products have the herbs, essential oils and vitamins necessary to improve the quality of your hair.

These natural ingredients help stimulate your scalp which boosts the blood flow, nourishes hair follicles, and keeps your hair healthy. Hair follicles are what makes your hair grow. Increasing blood flow to these follicles allows for more production of the protein keratin which in turn creates more hair.

Not all salons use organic products. Instead most still use the chemical filled products that we have grown to hate. So before finding your salon home do your research.

Thankfully all the products we use at our three locations in Clearwater, Largo, and St. Petersburg have all the nutrients necessary to boost your hair & handle the actual issue instead of covering it up!

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.

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.

How to Keep your Skin looking Gorgeous after a Facial!

You got a facial,  awesome!  But what can you do to keep your skin this gorgeous longer afterwards?

We usually advise that women get a facial at least once every three months to keep their skin healthy and beautiful.  Facials remove dead skin cells, clears the skin pores,  scrubs and exfoliates the skin.  A facial is thus very important to maintain the glow of your face. In short, a facial is a process where the skin is steamed, scrubbed and massaged. One of the other benefits of having facial is, it removes blackheads that look ugly on the face.

Before getting a facial, you need to prepare your skin for it. For example, removing makeup, knowing your skin type and any specific skin problems,  etc.
Moreover, you should not go for a facial with styled or freshly washed hair as a facial can make the hair get a bit oily.   So it is best to wash your hair after the facial.  However, after the 90 minutes session with your skin, you need to follow some tips for after care, so here are the skin care tips for you to follow after getting a facial.
relaxing facial

Avoid the Sun:
It is a very important skin care tip to follow after getting a facial. The UV rays of the sun can damage the skin and also leave scars of burned skin.
Drink lots of water: This is another skin care tip that you must follow after a facial. Drink lots of water to stay hydrated and get a glowing skin. This should indeed be a skin care tip that you must regularly follow.

Avoid Makeup: After getting a facial, avoid makeup. It is ideally good to keep makeup minimal after getting a facial. Makeup blocks the skin pores and also damages it. So after the facial, do not apply makeup.

No Sunbed: For the next 28 hours, you should avoid sunbed as it can be harmful for your skin. So, prefer leaving your face as it is. You can wash with water to remove excess oil and dirt from the skin.

Skip Face Wash: For the next 24 hours, you should not wash your face with a face wash. The chemicals in the face wash can be harmful for the skin.  Just use plain water for a day.

Rinse With Water: Make this a habit for proper skin care. Washing your face with water keeps the skin hydrated, supple and clean. You must wash your face with water 3-4 hours after the facial is done.

This will remove excess oil, dirt from the face and also cleans the skin pores. Try these skin care tips after getting a facial. To maintain the glowing and supple skin, drink lots of water and get rid of bad habits like smoking and drinking.

Use Sunscreen.  Protect your skin from UV rays of the sun by wearing a hat and applying sunscreen regularly. It is important you book for a facial once in two months or maximum within three months to keep your skin clean and glowing.

When you come into our Salon in Largo ( our Salons in Clearwater or St. Pete!) to receive a restorative facial, ask your Aesthetician for additional tips and tricks to keep your skin looking fresh and healthy.
