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.

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

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 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.

Dry, Damaged Hair? Try our Organic Hair Refresher for Softer more Luxurious Hair!

We often notice that some of our clients complain of issues with their hair being dry and damaged.   The cause is, very simply,  that the water we have here in Florida is hard water and builds up impurities such as iron, calcium, copper or magnesium on our hair, making it dry and damaged feeling.   Additionally, some medications and vitamins people take also take a toll on our hair.

ClarpHx is a special, organic conditioning treatment that removes this build up of deposits on your hair and adds shine.
