Deep conditioning hair masks are great for conditioning, soothing and softening our hair. If you love what your deep conditioner does for your hair, you may consider using it overnight. But be mindful that many hair masks are not formulated to use as overnight deep conditioners.
Some deep conditioners have ingredients that can weigh down your tresses, making them dull, limp or gummy if left on too long. However, lightweight masks can take overnight deep conditioning to the next level when used with a hot terry-cloth turban wrap.
Whether your hair is just starting to gray or you’ve been rocking a full head of stunning silver strands for the last few years, the question remains the same: To dye or not to dye?
If you’ve decided that dyeing your hair is the right move for you, then you probably have a few questions, such as:
Let’s pause here for a moment because this last one is super-important and will become a common theme throughout your hair-coloring journey. While your skin’s undertone is probably not the first thing that pops into your head when contemplating your new hair color, it’s actually more significant than you might think. Have you ever heard horror stories from friends who’ve left the salon, looked in the mirror, and felt that something about their new color was just… off? This might have been due to them or their stylist not taking their undertone into account.
Fear not: All colors come in both warm and cool tones, so your skin’s undertone shouldn’t keep you from getting the hair color you really want. It just might mean getting a different version of brown, blonde or purple. Yes, we said purple—more on that later.
Daily shampooing isn’t an option for some of us. We often need to skip a day, either because overwashing leaves us with a dry scalp, or we lack time in the morning before rushing out the door. Whatever the reason, using dry shampoo between washes is a great way to refresh and renew our tired strands in between washings.
Sometimes though, dry shampoos can, well, dry out our hair and scalp. So, is it possible for a dry shampoo to moisturize our mane and scalp? Yes, it is. The best dry shampoo to improve scalp moisture includes a conditioning ingredient like konjac root to fortify scalp health and hydration.
Lashes are often considered a universal sign of beauty. They may be associated with higher levels of confidence, attractiveness and well-being. Most of us desire long, thick, dark lashes that make our eyes "pop." However, beyond aesthetics, lashes are a crucial part of your lid margin anatomy (the edge of your eyelids).
Your lashes provide a barrier between your eye's internal and external environment and are extremely sensitive to threats and irritants. Additionally, they act as sensors to trigger a blink reflex when a foreign object gets close to your eye, preventing injury and safeguarding your eyes from particles.
Knowing this, we don’t want to be without our lashes for long. So, how long does it take for them to grow back? About six weeks if there was no damage to your eyelid or follicle; longer if you pulled out your eyelash.
While many of us remember to slather on sunscreen to protect our skin in the summer sun, we don’t always think about what our hair needs. With socializing and spending more time outdoors finally part of the plan, our hair counts more than ever!
Chlorine, saltwater and sun are all drying, so when it comes to summer hair, the keyword is moisture. A lack of moisture in our hair can lead to split ends, breakages and dandruff, as well as an overproduction of natural oils to compensate for the dehydration.
We’re here to talk about how to protect, style and repair your tresses in any summertime situation.
Let’s get started!
Straightening irons, curling irons, blow dryers—they are great tools that have become a permanent fixture in our daily hair regimen. Whether you are blowing out your tresses for maximum volume or straightening for a smooth style, there is a hot appliance for any look.
Yet if used incorrectly or too often, thermal styling tools can leave your locks feeling brittle and broken. They can also alter your hair structure permanently. Once heat damage happens, you can cut it and regrow it or disguise it using various styling techniques, but unfortunately, you can't reverse it.
Thankfully, there are sprays you can use to protect your strands, so you don't have to avoid your favorite styling tools altogether. Heat protectant spray has been available for several years, allowing you to coat and protect your hair against heat damage. They help you maintain hair health by sealing in moisture to your cuticles, protecting them from frizz and breakage.
