GREAT HAIR RULES

Hot water is very rough on your hair, make sure to rinse with cool water to help seal the cuticle and strengthen your hair before styling it.

Clean brushes regularly from build-up, which is a breeding grounds for bacteria. Clean them at least once a month with a mixture of baking soda and lukewarm water. A toothbrush will help you to get into all those tiny bristles.

When your hair is soaking wet, it is weaker, fragile and more susceptible to breakage. Try not to rough-dry hair with a towel, and instead gently press the water out. Do not brush your hair while it is wet. Use a wide-tooth comb, working from the ends of your hair on up.

Giving your head an invigorating massage as you shampoo is a good way to encourage blood circulation and helps to detoxify the scalp.

The volume of shampoo you should use depends on the length and thickness of your hair, but a blob the size of a 20p coin is a good start.

Any lifestyle choices like going to the gym may also affect how often you shampoo. To avoid your hair turn dry and brittle, try simply rinsing your hair with a dub of conditioner rather than adding in shampoo

A diet rich in iron, zinc, Omega-3 fatty acids, and protein will help stimulate your hair follicles for growth.

Use a natural-bristle brush, it is softer and more flexible, which means less damage to your hair.

After conditioning, rinse your hair with cold water. This helps to seal the cuticle, making it harder for moisture to enter the hair follicle, which can cause frizz.

Always try to opt for the warm setting on your dryer and hold the dryer 6 to 8 inches from your tresses. Be sure to point the airflow down on the hair shaft to prevent frizz.

Rubbing your hair with a towel when it’s wet can ruffle the cuticle and cause tangles, so gently squeeze out excess water.

Concentrate the shampoo on the first few inches of hair at the scalp, where you get the most oil and product buildup — your ends don't need cleansing as much. As for conditioner, work it in from the mid-shaft to the ends where the hair is driest and prone to split ends.

In most of the cases of hair damage, the efforts to fix the hair texture using hot tools along with oils, styling spay or any other liquids are leading to the state when the hair has to be cut off. Liquid fills the cracks and missing blocks of cuticle shingles and starts to boil under the heat of hair iron or curler. This literally rips the hair shaft apart.

 

HAIR GROWTH GUIDE

  • Co-Washing Dry Hair
    For at least the last two years we are hearing about a new no-shampoo method of washing hair by just using conditioner called co-washing, short for “conditioner washing”. The method of co-washing is primarily helpful to those who have naturally dry, unmanageable and frizzy, or over processed hair. Co-washing is truly appreciated by African-American woman […]
  • Dry Hair Repair
    Gelatin is a great way to instantly thicken hair or rejuvenate your hair if they are damaged. This product is the result of processing of animal connective tissue (cartilage, soft bones, tendons, skin, etc.) that contains the maximum amount of collagen and has 85 to 90 percent of protein, with the remainder made up of […]

HOLISTIC CARE

The best products are actually very simple and have familiar nature.

It is always tempting to buy fancy, big name hair products for your hair, but when you read the ingredient list something tells you that ingredients like mineral oil and alcohol will not provide your hair with the health and care you need. The best products are actually very simple and have familiar nature.

Avocado Oil
Avocado oil is excellent choice if you want to nourish your dry scalp by massaging it right into your scalp.  Fatty acids, high levels of vitamin A, D, and E are proven to work at the cellular level, avocado oil easily absorbs through your skin and will help soothe your scalp and to restore shine and health to dry and mistreated hair.

Castor Oil
Castor Oil consists of Ricinoleic Acid, which provides oil with the anti-bacterial and anti-fungicidal properties that helps to protect the scalp and hair from infections that can cause hair loss. Rich with omega-9 fatty acids, castor oil prevents your scalp from drying out and also sustains your hair from the roots. Castor oil has a very thick consistency that coats the hair shaft tightly soothing the cuticle layer, so the moisture is sealed and your hair feels soft and silky...

SCIENCE & NATURE FOR BETTER HAIR

about-us-3science-natureBefore you start looking for the right solution how to stop hair loss, first try to understand the cause of your thinning and become better informed on how hair growth occur that you can set realistic expectations. The proper hair care with our scalp treatments is the first step on treating hair loss problems. Please note that great hair is the result of good health, proper care routine and good scalp circulation. Please do not forget that proper nutrition makes a huge difference as well.

Hair regrowth is the complex biological process and hair loss prevention has to be taken seriously. Hair regrowth largely depends on age/genes/immune health and proper nutrition. People will naturally have better hair when following a balanced nutritional intake with products that are high in vitamins and amino acids.

Amino Acids are vital for cell production in our body, and could be described as the protein "building blocks". Unlike fat, amino acids can't be stored in the body for later use, so the lack of them can mean serious danger for the immune system. Also hair thinning can be the sign of lack of vitamin A, C, B complex, iron, iodine, and copper.

Our botanical products are based on the principle of hair stimulation. With the help of our botanical treatments, the amount of hair is increased due to keeping existing hair in growth phase longer, so hair strand doesn't leave hair strand sooner than it should.

Include scalp stimulating treatments into your hair washing routine. Essential oils are antiseptic in nature, and help to scalp health, boosting the overall density of your hair and eliminating scalp disorders. Maintaining a clean scalp by removing dirt and debris from the follicular cavity is ideal for growing healthy, thick hair.

Pay attention to your diet, because the nutrients from your body are a direct source for protein formation of hair strands. Add dietary supplements to your every meal to support cells with extra nutrition to be introduced directly into the blood stream. green-touch-beauty-leaf

LONGER HAIR FAST

When you have a healthy scalp it is easy to grow beautiful thick hair!

It is relatively easy to have healthy long thick hair by following one basic rule: whatever you are doing for your hair styling routine, make it as least damaging to the hair shaft as possible. Hair has two separate structures, the follicle in the skin and the shaft we see.

The follicle is a living part of the hair, and the hair shaft is made up of dead, hard protein called keratin. Hair on the scalp grows about .3-.4 mm/day or about 6 inches per year and by performing the proper scalp care will make your hair grow faster and longer, and with minimal hair loss it will make your hair appear thicker.

One of the follicle layers called papilla contains capillaries, or tiny blood vessels, that feed the cells, so the hair reproducing process continues. Poor blood circulation can cause hair thinning or even loss, so one of the goals of a scalp treatment will be promoting blood circulation. The other threat to hair follicles is mechanical damage, such as harsh hair brushes that scratch the scalp, or something attached to the hair roots like glue-in, bead in, or tape-in hair extensions that eventually destroy hair follicles by the additional weight put on the roots.
