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.

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.

What Does a Pedicure Include?

Heres what a pedicure at one of our Salons in Clearwater, St. Petersburg and Largo includes:

Foot Soak

A foot soak will get rid of the dirt and bacteria already on the foot and cleanse it for the nails shaping process and the all organic exfoliation.

Nail Shaping

Nails shaping is an easy way to eliminate fungus and ingrown nails. Getting a nail shaping on your toes and fingers 3-4 times a month will eliminate early diseases, reshape nails so no dead split nails are grown and make both your feet and hands look amazing.

Foot Exfoliation

A foot exfoliation will eliminate dry, flaky, and itchy feet. Exfoliation is usually after a foot soak since the scrub is more effective on pores that have already been opened up. Our all organic exfoliant will cleanse the foot and eliminate any and all potentials diseases or infections that have built up.

Cuticle Remover

A cuticle remover will help prevent bacteria and other nasty stuff like dirt from going under the nails and causing more damage.

Polish

And of course the polish!  We use a set of polishes that is formaldehyde free and all organic.  This allows the polish to be much gentler on both your feet still allowing them to look absolutely beautiful.

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.

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.

GHD (which stands for “Good Hair Day” naturally!) is beyond exceptional as a professional styling tool.  Not only does the straighteners look like they came from the future but they have characteristics that no other straighteners have. GHD straighteners are cool to the touch not only to your hands but for your hair.

My favorite feature of these amazing stylers is that they have “sleep mode”!  What is sleep mode?    If you’re anything like me, you sometimes forget to shut off your straightener,  yikes! But, the GHD shuts itself off after 30 minutes! Woo Hoo!!

How to Fish Tail

This instructions will teach you how to create a fishtail braid.

Step 1

Push all hair behind your shoulders. Preferably hair that has already been brushed and has no tangles. Divide hair into two sections down the back.

Step 2

Take a small outer piece of one of the two sections of your hair (it doesn’t matter which section you start with). Cross the small piece over and add it to the inside of the other section. This piece you have crossed will now become a part of the other section. Keep your crossed piece tight or hair may start to come out once you’ve finished braiding.

Step 3

Now you’re going to make the exact same cross but this time you will use the other section of hair. So, once again take a small piece from the outer part of the section and cross it over to the inside of the opposite section. Again, remember to keep the crosses tight.

Step 4

Continue crosses small outer pieces over to the inside of the opposing section. The smaller the pieces you cross, the better the braid will end up. Stop braiding once you feel the sections getting too small. This should be around two or three inches from the bottom of you hair.

Step 5

Once you’ve reached the end of the braid, tie it off with an elastic. Preferably a thin, clear one, but if not any hair tie will work.

Your Arches on FLEEK

Do you wake up every morning and apply wax, pencil or mousse to your brows and get an unnatural look? There is a semi permanent solution for you. You can come to the salon and do a brow tint. A brow tint creates a more natural look by using a tone that is closer to your natural brow color. The best part is the tint last up to six weeks; that is six weeks of time shaved off of your morning routine. If you’re like me that’s a lot of time because my brows need to look amazing before I walk out the door. So you save time, money and your brows are on fleek.
