Tips for Beautiful, Healthy Hair

We’ve all seen the ads for hair products ranging from shampoo and conditioners to hair serums, heat protectors, deep conditioners and glosses. So how do you know which products are best for your hair?
The main ingredient, found in approximately 90% of shampoos is Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or Sodium Laureth Sulfate. Sodium Laurel Sulfate is used mainly because it is an inexpensive detergent that mixes well as a foaming agent. Detergents like this can be toxic to your body and strip follicles of natural oils. It is recommended to use more gentle, natural ingredients for your skin and hair products.
Look for plant-based ingredients like castille soap, which does not lather up the way traditional shampoos do, but is much better for the health of your hair and your body. You can also use a gentle cleanser or baking soda with a few drops of your favorite essential oil.
You may choose to wash your hair every day, once it is balanced out, but it may be better to wash every 2 or 3 days to keep the natural oils locked in. Gently massage your scalp with your fingers to increase circulation and eliminate any hard-to-reach debris.
Hair follicles are gentle and should be treated as such. After shampooing, you should rinse your hair completely with cool water, which will lock the cuticle, rather than harsh hot water. Gently brush your hair with a wide-toothed comb and pat dry. Limiting the use of heat styling products like hair dryers, curling irons or flat irons will also help to keep your hair shiny and healthy.

How do you keep your hair healthy and beautiful?


Happy Easter!

The Curly Girl Handbook

{CURLY GIRL BY Massey, Lorraine(Author)}Curly Girl: The Handbook [With DVD] (Expanded)[paperback]Workman Publishing(Publisher)

Some of you gals might know that I am currently following the curly girl method and so far, I am loving it! You don't need a whole lot of money, just patience.

To begin the curly girl method a curlie needs to buy the right products as specified by the method. It is recommended that you write down the no-no ingredients and a few products you are interested in trying. This makes it easy when going to the store. You also might want to start out with less expensive products so you can get a feel for what your hair needs, before buying more expensive lines.

Start with the basics which are a no-sulfate shampoo, no-silicone conditioner and oil and/or gel (no-silicone nor alcohol)

This book is a great investment so read a few pages free by clicking on the above image and buy it today! Right now, I am on day 5 using this method and it is the best thing since sliced bread!
