Hairstyles To Make You Look Younger

Youth and longevity - people have started to focus the spotlight on these two things, so much so that the Global Wellness Institute estimates that industry is currently worth US$3.4 trillion which is three times what the pharmaceutical industry is worth.

Dominican Hair Care To Tame Your Frizz

When you have a daughter with long curly hair it is wonderful but problems can occur when their hair gets frizzy and dry and you are unable to find the right hair care. Every month we have to try new products as they do not moisturize the hair properly and it once again becomes frizzy especially at the front of her hair. Over the past two weeks I have tried Dominican Hair Cares;

Doctor Cabello Biotina magic hair shampoo (1): This is said to revitalize your hair and contains vitamin E, which nourishes dehydrated hair. Each strand of your hair gets coated with Biotin to leave your hair feeling moisturized, hydrated and it stops any further damage to your hair. (I washed my daughters hair with this shampoo and then rinsed it off).

Doctor Cabello Biotin magic hair treatment (2): This promises to give new life to damaged and tired looking hair. Also full of vitamin E, Biotin and B5 it restores your hairs natural volume, repairs any damage and adds a healthy sheen to your hair. (I left this on my daughter’s hair for 20 minutes before rinsing it out).
Doctor Cabello Biotina magic hair balsam (3): This is said to give your hair the loving care that it deserves. The vitamin E and Biotin rich conditioner instantly refreshes your hair and stops any breakage. (I left this in my daughter’s hair for 10 minutes before rinsing it out).

Doctor Cabello Biotina leave-in conditioner (4): This is suitable for any hair types just like all the other products in their range but was specially created for bringing moisture to dry hair. Just like the other products it too is enriched with vitamin E and Biotin to give your hair that healthy feeling and look. (As it is a leave in conditioner I massaged this into my daughters hair after towel drying it).

After using all the treatments in her hair the frizz was no longer and her hair became silky as the tangles were no more. Her hair is now back to the curly, shiny and healthy texture that it once was. As her hair is so easy to comb through now she is able to do it herself which saves me a job in the mornings. Her hands always seem to be stroking at her hair feeling how soft it is, she loves how good it feels. www.dominicanhaircare.co.uk

Hot Hair Trends This Winter

The days are getting cooler, the dark nights are already here, we wrap up in big jumpers, coats, scarfs and hats but don't let that stop you from looking beautiful. Look forward to the new season by trying out some of the new hottest hair trends. From a classic French twist with a modern update, low ponytails or my personal key hair trend bohemian waves there's something pretty for everyone this new season.

The Low Ponytail

Messy or sleek, side or straight, the low ponytail is big this season. The trick to the trend is to wear it very low. Choose a messy low ponytail for the daytime and by night opt for a sleek sophisticated look wither straight or to the side. If you're wearing one of winters hot metallic eye makeup trends why not wrap some metal around the ponytail.

French Twist

A classic French twist with a difference is massive this season after seeing it on the catwalk with both Chanel and Tom Ford amongst others. The key to the trend is to make the twist looser and younger. Make it much messier or try adding waves to the hair first, hold the twist with statement pins or ribbon.

Bohemian Waves

My key hair trend is exactly this. Beautiful long, thick, textured kinky waves that simply look like you plaited your hair wet and let it air dry; and why not do exactly that? If you don't want to leave your hair to dry in plaits simply spray some sea salt spray into damp hair before drying

Poker straight hair is hotting up once again

That’s right, poker straight hair flattened with straightening irons is once again coming back with a bang as we head into the autumn season and GHD which stands for ‘good hair day’ are ahead of the game by introducing their new platinum series of hair straighteners.

Straight hair is one of the most wished for features by thousands of women across the globe along with fighting the frizz and shiny luscious locks. GHD have created a new miracle straightener that promises to tackle all.

The platinum series promises to deliver the ultimate styling results with a healthier, stronger and shiner finish by being made with tri zone technology of three senses in each plate to ensure that the temperature of the straightener is maintained across the entire plate from root to tip. With a maximum temperature of 180 degrees these new irons promise to reduce hair breakage by over 50 percent and increasing shine by 20 percent.

GHD have certainly delivered with their new series of straighteners ready for the new autumn hair trend…

Follow my tips for perfect healthy poker straight locks

• When straightening the hair always make sure you have given the hair plenty of moisture by applying a leave in conditioner after washing like Tigi Bed Head Ego Boost.

• Before straightening apply a heat protection product from roots to ends like GHD Heat Protect.

• Section the hair into 4 quarters, and take small sections from each quarter as you work the straighteners through.

• Use a small comb as you glide the straighteners through the hair, this not only tackles any knots but also helps in creating the smooth poker straight effect.

• When straightening, leave 2cm at the roots untouched from the straighteners, this will leave volume to your locks.

• Always leave 1cm at the ends untouched to help avoid split ends.

• Finish with a moisture hair serum.

GHD Platinum series available in black, white and baby pink for 165 from www.ghdhair.com

Hair care From Salon Science

 IMG 1410

My hair texture is fine, professionally highlighted, tends to dry out on the ends and its naturally curly, with a tendency to frizz and fly out in all directions.

I’ve been using both products for over a week now. I only used small amount of mousse to start with but slightly larger amount that suggested on the packaging works better with my fine hair. Both products work best when used together, however the mousse worked best on my towel dried hair, after I brushed it. After I dried my hair I used small amount of oil to smooth the waves.

Overall, I am pretty impressed by both products – hair stays nice silky texture for about two days without the need for washing and the ends aren’t drying out. The hair keeps its shape and there is no uncontrollable frizzing. I only needed to use a bit of the serum in the morning to get the hair under control without having to wash it again. I prefer both products to similar hair products that I’ve been using so far.

Curly Hair Treatment

natural curls

Taking care of naturally curly hair can be quite an intensive task, I know some ladies that have a really crazy regime of taking care of their natural curls. I must admit that I can be very lazy when it comes to taking care of my curls but I try. It is that laziness that sometimes leave my hair dry and then needs some extra care to get it back to healthy and moisturised curls.

Here are some of my favourite hair treatments

Olive oil

Applying olive oil to my hair before I was it and then letting it sit under a plastic cap for about 45minutes before washing my hair. This why you give the oil to completely absorb into the hair follicles. Olive oil also improves the strength and elasticity of your hair.

Mayonnaise and Avocado Conditioner for dry and frizzy hair.

Make your own: Mix 1 cup of mayonnaise with 1/2 avocado until you have a paste. Rub it on your hair and cover your head with a plastic cap.

Wrap a hot towel around it. Leave it on for 20 minutes and wash. Try to repeat this treatment once a week for great results.

Then there are some treatments that I like to leave overnight on my hair, which are the Argan oil hair mask. There are a variety of Argan oil mask, but I like the one in picture below, which I bought in the Euro pound store. This mask is enriched with proteins, Kertain and infused with Argan oil.

Just make sure to cover your hair with a plastic cap and a head scarf, keeping it nice and warm allowing the treatment to work its magic. This treatment restores elasticity, improves hair texture and makes hair easy to manage.

Boots Coconut & Almond Intensive Hair Mask. I also like to leave this one overnight for soft, moisture hair in the morning.

If I want something quick, then there is the 1minute treatment from Garnier- Ultimate blends sleek restorer for frizzy hair. Love this one, leaves my hair smelling nice, soft and frizz free Best part is I can apply it while in the shower and just rinse it off when I am done and I am ready to go.

Summer is on its way and by know we have started shopping for our summer wardrobe, and doubled up on exfoliating and moisturising our bodies. But what about spending some extra time on preparing your hair for your summer holidays. The exposure to sun, salt and chlorine can damage your hair leaving them dry, brittle and prone to breakage. Here are some tips to help you prepare your locks for those sunny days lounging by the pool or on a sunny beach


Prevent Damage

Prevention is better than a cure, deep conditioner once a week as this will keep your hair in good shape all summer long. Also get colour treatments before the summer and avoid heat styling as much as possible.


Macadamia natural oil Deep Repair Masque, rebuilds dry and damaged hair with its combination or macadamia and argan oil.

Swim Care

Chlorine sucks the moisture out of your hair, so be sure to wet your hair before and after swimming to get rid of the salt and chlorine.
Redken Hair Cleansing Cream Shampoo clarifies and removes copper, iron, hard water and minerals as well as product build up and suits all hair types.

Sun Protection

Too much exposure to the sun can leave your tresses dry and lifeless so spray your hair with a SPF spray. Wella Professionals sun protection spray contains a double phase formula. Phase 1 helps to protect hair against UV rays while Phase 2 contains a vitamin complex that hydrates the hair leaving healthy and soft to the touch.

Moisturize

Humidity brings out the frizz monster so you want to thoroughly moisturise your hair. Natural curly hair needs extra moisture, keep a spray bottle with a mixture of water and leave in conditioner to spritz your hair throughout the day.

I love the Naked Range and finds that the Naked Style Gorgeous Curls Taming Cream and their Leave-in conditioner helps to keep my natural curls defined and moisturised.
