How to Style African Hair?

African hair, Buy Brazilian Hair, Hair extensions & wig online - HAIRPLENatural African hair is largely unique in comparison to other hair types. This is because the follicles of natural hair tend to curve rather than grow out straight. It is this curvature of follicles that contributes to the curling of afro hair. Because the hair grows out tightly coiled, the naturally produced oils are not able to flow down the curved follicles easily. As a result, African hair is typically dry and does not require as much washing as other hair types. While women with straight hair need to wash it every other day, African women can do with one wash a week before styling their hair.

Styling African Hair

Styling afro hair can be successfully done not only in the salon, but also at home on your own. Having your hair styled by a hair stylist is a good option as they tend to be more experienced in getting the job done well. However, if you would prefer to style your hair yourself, at least consult the stylist for some beginner points, as well as the all important dos and don’ts.

African hair can be styled in numerous ways. In fact, the possibilities for styling afro hair are endless. Depending on your hair type and length, you can have a variety of hairstyles done on your African hair. The key to enjoying the best hairstyle for longer is taking good care of it. Below are some pointers to help you style your hair in your own individual gorgeous way.

  • Dreadlocks – This is one of the popular ways of styling African hair. African hair is known to form very small knots, which makes it easy to hold styles such as dreadlocks. To ensure that your dread look remains gorgeous, use products that are designed for locks. It is also necessary to shampoo and condition your hair regularly, and also treat your locks gently to avoid causing breakage.
  • Braids – This is another popular African hairstyle that can further be styled in infinite ways, whether at home or at the hair salon. Be sure to protect your braids by oiling them at least once a week to ensure that they remain in great shape, and visit the hair salon on a regular basis for your touch-ups. To style your braids, you may go for looks such as the braided bun, kinky twists, cornrows, micro and box braids.
  • Afro – The afro is yet another hairstyle that’s making a come-back among African women. The afro is very easy to achieve as you can comb it out and leave it as is, or add a scarf or hair band to slick it back. Once your afro is trimmed, all you have to do is maintain it, just as you would African hair. This involves washing, conditioning and moisturizing it as required. Always use a wide-tooth pick comb to shape the afro. Begin at the back of your head and then pick out the sides, before moving to the top and front sections.

There is a misconception that African hair does not grow. Yet it does, only that poor styling habits can cause it to get damaged and break off. When combing or brushing your hair, it is important to avoid using excessive force or pulling on the hair. Failure to do this could cause small breakages that accumulate over time to ruin the overall look of your hairstyle. Keep your hair clean as this will enable it to hold the style well and for longer. Be sure to wear a silk scarf or sleep on a satin pillow case at night to protect your hairstyle.

The Best Face Wash Tips

Face wash tips

Most people keep a first look impression. The face, if no makeup is used, and clothes are what most people see on first approach. In most cases, clothes can easily be forgotten but faces are always left vividly imprinted in people’s minds. This means that you have to take care of your face and make sure that your face looks as great as possible can. This can be achieved by having a regular and proper face wash. Below are some of the best washing techniques that you can use every day to wash your face.

When it comes to washing your face, it comes down to 2 options, either using the traditional water and soap wash or using the facial care products that come as a range. The facial care products include (but are not limited to), lotions, oils, wipes, scrubs, forming mousses and exfoliators. There is just so much going on that you have to find the best for your face, without makeup. When you find the best products for taking care of your skin, you have to continually use them and religiously wash your face, without makeup.

Washing your face, without makeup doesn’t have to be done only once a day when you wash your body. You can wash your face up to 2 times a day and you will achieve a great look with a refreshed skin.

If you are one of those who really don’t know how to wash their faces, then you might just need help. Here are some tips and secrets that you can use when washing your hair.

Following these steps will result in a clean and clear face, without makeup after the wash routine:

  1. The first step is to wash your hands. There are a lot of bacteria and fungi usually logged under your nails and this needs to be washed off so that you don’t infect your skin while trying to wash it.
  2. Using lukewarm water, wet your face, without makeup. Try as much as possible not to use face cloths or makeup sponges as they might be too strong and damage your skin.
  3. Check that your washer, (liquid, gel or soap) does not contain any alcohol as alcohol can be abrasive and hurt your skin. Use the cleanser and apply it generally all over your face, without makeup, avoiding your eyes.
  4. Continue to spread the cleanser all over your face, without makeup, and behind your ears and then rinse off with lukewarm water. Using a soft dry towel, pat it dry, don’t rub it but gentle pat it dry.
  5. Apply your moisturizer making sure that you don’t pull your skin too tight as you might just damage the skin tissues.

If you follow this routine, it’s easier to include your toning and scrubbing processes. You can use the toner after rinsing your face, without makeup, off with lukewarm water. Apply some drops of your favorite toner to a sponge and gentle move the makeup sponge in wave-like motions all over your face, without makeup. This can be done every time you wash your face, without makeup. If you want to scrub your face, you can use your facial makeup scrub after step 1. Just make sure that your face, without makeup, is not too dry so that you can scrub it without peeling it off. Use facial makeup scrubs with fruits and other natural products. These will directly feed and nourish your skin cells.

The don’ts of face washing

  • Don’t pick out the wrong face makeup care products. Skin types are different; you should not expect to have excellent results while using a range for normal skin type on oily skin type
  • Don’t overdo your washing procedure. Wash your face up to 2 times a day. Anything above that is now overdoing it and you will be abusing your skin cells. Your skin needs a break from the face washing products in order to have a fighting chance.
  • Don’t use hot water when washing your face, without makeup. Your facial skin is very sensitive and you should only use lukewarm water. Even in winter, lukewarm water will effectively cleanse your face without scalding it.
  • Don’t over-exfoliate. The maximum number of times that one should use exfoliators in face washing routines is up to 2 times a week. Exfoliating is necessary for getting rid of dead skin cells; however, overdoing it will result in the death of your skin cells since there won’t be any dead skin cells to get rid of.
  • Don’t close the water before you have thoroughly rinsed all the cleanser off your face. This is one of the mistakes that people usually overlook. Take your time when washing your face, without makeup and get it right every time.
  • Don’t use the towel to rub your face, without makeup. This will tug your skin and mess it up. If you feel like rubbing so much just use your hands and gently pat your face.

Bad Chemicals For Your Hair & Hair Color

Hair Color & Styling – Know The Dangerous Products

In recent years, many people are choosing natural products for hair and skin care. The main reason for that is the fact that most of the mainstream products are full of chemicals and harmful toxins that may have a negative impact on hair health or even for your skin. Many researches and studies have shown that nutrition is very important for maintaining your hair health.  But it wouldn’t help if you continue to use bad chemicals for your hair color or hairstyle. So at some point you have to stop and check what chemicals are used in your hair color products and by your beauty salon people.  Worse still, how often these chemicals are used on your hair and scalp.

Taking care of your scalp and hair is very important and should be done carefully and cautiously because wrong products may cause more damage than benefits. For most people you may actually find that their hair are much more healthy and they would actually be fine using natural-based products – ie. organic shampoos, etc.  That way, you may avoid unnecessary hair health issues such as dry hair, scalp problems, certain diseases, and even hair loss.

Which Hair Products Are Considered Dangerous?

Almost every hair care product can be dangerous if contains certain ingredients. Even normal hair products like hair color products can be bad for your hair health as long as they are used more often or applied excessively.  But first before purchasing any hair care product, it is very important to check the label. What ingredients to avoid:

  • Phthalates – when reading the ingredient list on the gel or hair color products, and you see the term “fragrance”, it would be the best to just avoid that gel or hair color product. While phthalates will make the scent of the product desirable, it really does not mean the product is safe for your hair.  A study that was conducted by the University of Michigan showed that exposure to the high level of phthalates leads to decreased testosterone.  This in turn is bad for your hair!
  • Alcohol – when it comes to hair, try not to use this ingredient excessiely, because using products that contain alcohol on a daily basis will make the hair dry. Dryness leads to other issues, such as broken hair, and eventually even hair loss. Alcohol is mainly used in hair styling and hair color products, yet there are many products that are alcohol-free. It is certainly a much better option.
  • DEA – You usually get this ingredient in skin and hair products. It sometimes called Cocamide DEA and it comes from coconut oil, but during processing some harmfull chemicals are used and it ends up being harmfull. Research has pointed out that DEA is one of the hormone-disrupting chemicals. In fact, It may form the agents that are causing cancer.
  • Sulfates – SLES, sodium laureth sulfate, and SLS, sodium lauryl sulfate produces suds in shampoos. Suds is what you feel foaming in your mouth when brushing teeth, it also foams luxuriously when you wash your hair with shampoo. However, Suds can actually strip your hair of it’s natural oils and this will mean dry hair and hair shedding.

Other harmful ingredients are lead acetate, iodopropynyl butylcarbamate, lanolin, MEA, TEA, Color Pigments, Imidazolidinyl urea, and so on. The list of harmful ingredients is very long, and all these chemicals can be found in a wide range of products, including shampoos, conditioners, hair color dyes, and different hair styling products.

Heat Styling Tools Can Also be Bad For Hair

While products are dangerous because they contain chemicals, heat is also the enemy. Excessive heat on the hair leads to dryness. While using flat or curling irons, and blow dryer can change your hair style in seconds, using such items often will lead to dry hair. When the hair is dry, it is prone to breaking.. Hair loss is another issues that may occur, because damaged hair will become thinner over some period of time.

What products to use for natural hair?

Studies have been conducted about hair care and hair color products showing that every hair styling or hair color product that contains harmful chemical and toxins is really not the right choice. The best possible solution is to choose completely natural, organic hair styling and hair color products, since they are chemical and toxin free. Chemicals will not only harm your scalp and hair, they can also have a huge impact on your personal health. If you do not choose organic products, make sure to read the label and check what ingredients product contains and then reduce the use of harmful hair care and hair color products. That way, you will keep your scalp and hair healthy, and you will also avoid many medical conditions that may occur when using dangerous products.

What products to use if you have hair extensions?

High quality hair extensions are usually made from “virgin human remy hair” that may be “100 % Brazilian”, or it may be “Peruvian, Malaysian or European hair”. The point is, it is human hair, which is why you need to treat the extensions the same way you treat your natural hair. This rule also applies for weave lace front wigs, since these are also made from human hair. If you want to make your extensions to last longer, carefully choose the products. That means reduce the use of harmful products or the products should be chemical and toxin free, and the best option are organic products. Also, styling and hair color on extensions is allowed, but it is very important to carefully check the use of heat styling tools.

Polymers in shampoos

  • Selenium sulfide is a great hair product as it slows down the buildup of dead skin cells and also helps to fight fungi. Having a sulfide containing hair shampoo will help to thoroughly wash the hair and the scalp at the same time.
  • Ketoconazole is responsible for the elimination of fungi which causes dandruff. Therefore, if a shampoo includes ketoconazole, you are assured that your wash day will be worth it.
  • Tar is a strong substance not only in external factories but in the hair industry. A shampoo with tar will help slow down dead tissue buildup. The only side effect of having such a shampoo is that it might result in hair color loss or subsequent graying of hair with continued use.
  • Salicylic acid in a shampoo will ensure that all flaky skin falls off during the wash session. However, just like tar, it also has a side effect and this is the fact that it might result in an itchier scalp after wash day.

If you are going shampoo shopping then you can look for shampoos that have either one of the 5 polymer based substances listed in this article. However, the best for your hair is always to take care of it with natural hair style and shampoo products. The hair style and shampoo products listed above are part and parcel of the best hair style and shampoo products. There are instances when you can even mix any 2 of the above substances and wash your hair using the mixture. The result will be strong beautiful hair without being subjected to chemicals. As for your scalp, it will be well taken care of and left fresh and free from any bacterial and fungal infections.

Brazilian Human Hair Moisture content basics

Hair Style Moisture content basics

One of the issues that bothers many is dry hair. When the hair is dry, it is not soft to the touch, and it looks and feels like a straw. Also, compared to normal hair style, dry hair styles will not look healthy, and it won’t have natural shine.

Importance of moisture

When it comes to hair, it may become dry in the same way the skin can. The most important thing is to provide moisture to your hair style, because when it is dry, it means it has the lack of moisture. Moisture content is very significant. Many research and studies have shown that when the moisture content is low, the hair styles becomes dry, it is brittle, and it breaks so easily when you stretch it. It means that hair needs moisture. On the other hand, if the hair stretches, but if stays stretched, it means the content is too high. In that case, protein is required. The balance of the protein and moisture is right, when the hair stretches, but it turns back into the original length. When it comes to skin, moisture content of about 10 percent is considered as sufficient. When it comes to hair, moisture content of about 15 to 17 percent is considered as sufficient.

Importance of moisture content

The natural moisture level is vital for the cosmetic behavior, appearance, and properties of the hair style. Many different factors can have the impact on the moisture content, which is why it may vary. Hair tends to absorb the moisture straight from the air, which means it is hygroscopic. When the air is dry from heating, or in certain areas with desert climate, the share of water hair will absorb is about 10 %. In a tropical rain forest area, that share is about 30 %. The moisture content is also responsible for the flexibility of the hair style.

One of the main factors that determines the quality of the hair style is the moisture content. There are some important variables as well. Some of those are humidity in the air, type of hair, diet, possible chemical treatments, such as bleaching and dying, and so on.

Hair style extensions with super moisture content

In the last couple of years, the quality of hair style extensions is excellent. When extensions are made from human hair, that may be 100% Brazilian hair, or hair from other donors, moisture content is taken into account. Extensions made from virgin human remy hair style have superb moisture content. Such extensions are elastic, flexible and shiny. Moreover, they cannot be easily damaged. The weave lace front wigs also made from human hair have proper moisture content.

Heat is the enemy

A well-known fact, proved by many different research and studies is that hair needs water, in order to be able to stretch. Also, with enough water, hair style will maintain its elasticity, it won’t break, and it will be soft to touch. When the hair easily breaks, it is because of the loss of moisture content. Even though, human hair style contains moisture, it is also porous. Heat reduces natural moisture content. In case you use heat constantly, it will certainly have the impact on the moisture content.  For that reason, it is really important to provide your hair additional sources of moisture from the outside. When using a blow dryer, iron, or both, the moisture content will be reduced, and hair style fibers won’t be able to reform. For those who have curly hair style, it means curls may lose.

Choose good moisturizing products

When the hair becomes dry, and when it easily breaks, it means the natural moisture content is reduced. In that case, it is essential to use proper products, in order to provide the moisture from the outside. Regular usage of shampoos and conditioners will supply the moisture. When the moisture content is significantly reduced, you need to choose moisturizing hair style care products. Moisturizing shampoos and conditioners contain different agents. Some of the best are:

  • silk
  • Wheat proteins
  • Panthenol
  • Aloe vera
  • Glycerol

These agents are active thanks to their molecular structure. For that reason, they bind the moisture within the hair style and as a result hair will be able to better preserve the water.

It is more than clear how important the moisture content is. Many factors do have the impact on it, and is soon as it reduces, moisture should be provided from the outside. Even in the hair style extension industry, the best hair for extensions gathered from Peruvian, Malaysian, Brazilian or other donors must have superb moisture content. If you noticed your hair is breaking, and that is dry, remember that your hair style needs water in order to be shiny and to maintain its elasticity. Make sure to provide the moisture to your hair style, with the carefully selected products.
