What Are the Benefits of Using a Serum Applicator?

April 12, 2021

Using an applicator is crucial to achieving the best results from your hair and scalp serum.

The Gray Hair Debate: To Dye or Not to Dye, that Is the Question

April 09, 2021

In 1956, Shirley Polykoff coined the ad slogan “Does she … or doesn’t she” for Clairol, removing the stigma of dyeing one’s hair and unleashing millions of women to openly and confidently choose what color they wanted their hair to be.

Fast-forward to 2020, where the latest slogan might just be “To dye … or not to dye” as lockdowns caused many women to start embracing their grays. 

Being in the hair-care business, we just had to take a closer look. We caught up with two 40-something female entrepreneurs whose gray-hair journey began in their mid-20s. Longtime friends, colleagues and now cofounders of Sway, a visual content studio in New York City, Nicole Hyatt and Rebecca Karamehmedovic share many loves: photography, dogs, travel and tacos—but their silver strands are certainly not one of them. In fact, their opinions on the matter couldn’t be more different. Nicole began coloring her hair the moment she spotted her first few grays while Rebecca has never once concealed her silver strands.

We get to the root of the issue. Here’s what they had to say:

Should I Wash My Hair After Every Workout? Many of us believe that we have to wash our hair after every workout. The truth is, how often you wash your locks has a lot to do with your hair texture, type and your own preference.

Should I Wash My Hair After Every Workout?

April 09, 2021

Many of us believe that we have to wash our hair after every workout. The truth is, how often you wash your locks has a lot to do with your hair texture, type and your own preference. 

Many beauty experts say that it’s okay to skip your hair washing after a workout. Rinsing with water may be enough. In addition to saving time, skipping your post-workout hair washing every once in a while can actually be beneficial for your scalp health.

Scrubbing too often could disrupt your scalp’s pH and cause dryness, which could lead to uncomfortable flakes and itchiness. Conversely, you don’t want to skip too many shampoos — because, besides smelling, you may encounter scalp buildup, which can block new hair growth and cause other issues.

Should I Condition My Hair After Using A Hair Mask?

April 06, 2021

If your hair is excessively dry, you may be tempted to double up on moisturizers by using a conditioner after your hair mask. Though in this case, more is not always better.

Hair masks are high-power conditioning solutions that can deeply nourish and strengthen your hair. They infuse your strands with desperately-needed hydration; however, too much conditioning can saturate your locks, leading to dull, limp hair. 

To achieve maximum benefit, apply your hair mask once or twice a week in place of your regular conditioner.

How Often Should I Massage My Scalp With A Serum?

April 05, 2021

Your hair and scalp go through menopause-related physiological changes similar to the rest of your body. Your hair may undergo decreased elasticity, protein loss and torn cuticle cells. An abundance of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) hormones can attack and destroy your hair follicles. The list seems like it goes on and on. Yet, many of our hair and scalp challenges stem from a lack of nutrients reaching our follicles. You can alleviate many of these issues by coupling a daily scalp massage with a restorative serum packed with highly nutritious ingredients.

Does A Serum Work For All Scalp Types?

Does A Serum Work For All Scalp Types?

April 02, 2021

Scalp serums can play a large part in encouraging robust hair growth by addressing your underlying hair biology. If you wash your hair too frequently, you are cleansing away natural oils and preventing them from replenishing. On the flip side, if you’re using dry shampoo and washing too infrequently, your scalp is liable to become dry and develop flakes. 

Just as different hair types require different shampoos to address their varying needs, the same principle applies to your scalp and the serum it requires. Choose a serum that works for all scalp types.
