Black Seed Oil for Hands, Feet and Crow’s Feet!

Black Seed Oil for Hands, Feet and Crow’s Feet!

Previously, we had mentioned the rage of Black Seed Oil. Reviews online are pretty overwhelming with folks loving the natural herb supplement. So, we had to tested it for ourselves.

Obsessed much?

When it comes to black seed oil, we all seem to be in love.

Black seed oil can be used internally or externally. Taking the oil orally, has been known to reduce specific aliments as well as restore overall health. Take a look at these benefits.

Personally, I’ve been using the black seed at a moisturizer for several weeks. I was dealing with the issue of extremely dry hands. I had tried creams and other oils, including coconut oil. It didn’t help for long. After two uses of black seed, my hands were back to soft. The cracking stopped, and my hands were back to lovely. I began using black seed on my feet. The results were wonderful.

Finally, I was brave enough to try on my face. The reduction on fine lines and crow’s feet is outstanding. Skin care is one of the most important things in overall health. Most folks think that falls under the category of vanity. However, your skin is the largest organ of your body. What your skin absorbs, affects you internally. So proceed with caution when it comes to what you put on your body. Shop for all-natural black seed oil.

Black seed is claimed to be an all-natural, all-healing, supplement while providing awesome skin care. Some side-effects that have been listed is stimulating hair growth and light breakouts. One major thing to remember is black seed lowers blood pressure. This is a benefit for many people. Yet, you may not want to use if you have low blood pressure.

As always, we recommend you speak with your doctor before taking any supplement to make sure it is right for you. Your doctor should be able to tell you if it will interact with any current medications.

If you take black seed oil, tell us what you think!

Maintain Your Natural Hair

Maintain Your Natural Hair

Our hair is our signature upon first impressions. Trying to bring our best everyday, it can be difficult to maintain hair through season changes, chemical changes, and growth changes. Extensions are a great resource to achieve that gorgeous head of hair you’re trying to accomplish without using chemicals. Perhaps you’re trying to grow your hair out.  Maybe wearing wigs is your preference instead of using chemicals to change your color. But whether you have short hair or longer locks it’s important to maintain your natural hair all year round.

Hair is not a one-size fits all, and amazingbeautyhair.com breaks it down into hair types and options along with several methods to help keep your natural hair healthy in a natural way.

Getting Ready for Summer Skin and Hair

Getting Ready for Summer Skin and Hair

As the season changes, so does our skin and hair. Preparing for any season takes a little TLC so your body doesn’t pay the price. Dry skin is common in the winter, but as we transcend from winter to spring, dry skin and hair tends to happen.

Signs that Your Skin and Hair Needs Moisture

Dry, peeling or breaking skin or hair is usually a good sign that you need to hydrate yourself. The best way to hydrate your skin and hair is by drinking plenty of water. Eight, eight ounces of water is needed per day. I’ve heard time and time again from people saying, ‘I can’t drink eight bottles of water per day’. Well, first off, most bottles of water are sixteen ounces, so you would only need to drink four if that was your only source. However, fruits and veggies hold a lot of water. Eating your daily servings help contribute to your daily needed water content.

Keep Clean and Balanced

When your skin is clean and hydrated, you will be able to maintain a healthier balance in skin tone. Oil or shiny spots on skin is also a sign that you need hydration. The body is genius. It knows how to try and hydrate on its own, unfortunately, it will only show up in certain areas like, the T-zone. If are part of the percentage of the population that has honest oily skin issues, check with your dermatologist for your best options. For the others, in most cases, when you try to dry out the area, it will only make the shiny areas worse. Instead, try hydrating.

Add Oils

Adding oils into your diet can help promote moisture and hydration. Nuts are a great source to maintain great health and hydration. Also, try cooking with olive oil, coconut oil or sunflower seed to nourish your body. You’ll find these benefits are helping you from the inside out. I personally like adding external oils into my daily regimen. Essential oils have plenty of healing properties. One of my favorite external oils that has multiple purposes is Argan oil. Use Argan oil on hair, skin or nails for hydration, balancing skin tone, calming inflammation, reducing wrinkles and preventing hair-breakage or skin breakouts while stimulating hair and nail growth. Greenesthetics.com offers a 100% Moroccan Argan oil as well as other cool products including their new Alightener Foam for teeth whitening while cleaning your mouth tray or an Invisalign retainer.

Exfoliate to Look Polished

Removing dead skin cells is an important part of maintaining skin health. Removing the build up can help reduce pores and remove fine lines. Also, exfoliating requires a light scrub, so you’re providing a light massage to the skin, which stimulates cells to regenerate. Exfoliate the skin on a weekly basis. Don’t just focus on your face. It’s important to scrub the whole body.

Get Versatile with Your Hair

By Tia Cristy

Get Versatile with Your Hair 

We all go through periods where we get bored with our hair. Is your hair dull? Has you locks lost their life? Does it seem like a bun or ponytail is the only style you’re rocking on a daily basis? Don’t get me wrong, a messy bun or ponytail can be the right style for the right moment, but if it’s your go-to style, you might be in need of a change.

How Drastic are You Willing to Go?

Deciding how to change your look takes some effort. Hair changes are not permanent, but most changes take a bit of commitment. Are you debating about changing your color? If color change is a first for you, you might want to choose a subtle change. Add a few highlights or lowlights to change the whole appearance of your face. If you’re determine to go drastic, I recommend getting a professional. Colors and bleaches are chemicals, which means they have to be mixed correctly, timed perfectly and rinsed properly. It’s a special touch to obtain vibrant colors. If you want to go grey, purple, pink, blue, etc., bleaching the hair is usually a must. A professional can mix the right products to make that bleach safe for your scalp. Warning not all bleaches are safe on the scalp. Also, if you have a color tint mishap, a pro can fix it in the easiest and healthiest way.

Chop It?

Is it time to let go of length? Sometimes the hair needs several inches removed to regain health. Sometimes we get bored with the length. But what happens if we cut it off and wish we could glue it back on two hours later? Easy solution for that in today’s world is to buy yourself some hair. Hair extensions are more popular than ever, and more affordable for quality hair. Check out the many different styles and colors that are available out there nowadays. Some extensions are removable on a daily.  Amazing Beauty Hair has a gorgeous selection of colors and textures to choose from. There are two options to choose from. They can be applied to the head with glue or clips instead of being sewn and weaved into your hair giving you the best of both worlds with long and short hair. The extensions are shipped beautifully in a sturdy box with a comb to section the hair properly. However, if your hair is long, but thin, add extensions to give thickness. I think it’s best to invest in 100% human hair if you’re planning on using the extensions on a frequent basis. It’s worth the little extra for a longer lifespan.

Is that a Shine or Greasy?

Getting a great shine in your hair starts from the inside out. Eating a well-balanced diet helps maintain hair health. B vitamins are important to overall health but adding a Super-B complex can feed your hair properly—always check with your doctor before starting supplements. Treat your hair with a hair mask.

Mix 1 egg, a cup of mayonnaise and a few squirts of your daily conditioner. Run through your wet locks, and then pin it up for 20 minutes. To get better results, put on a shower cap to allow your own body heat to work its benefit. After 20 minutes, rinse thoroughly, and then proceed with your normal shampoo and conditioner routine. Dry naturally or with a blow-dryer. If you use a hair dryer, give your hair a cold shot to create more shine.

Hair with New Life

Trying new options with your hair can boost your mood and confidence. With minimal effort, changing our hair can change our pyridine.

5 Reasons to Book a Brazilian Blowout

5 Reasons to Book a Brazilian Blowout

 

You may have seen the results all over your social media feeds, Brazilian Blowouts are having a moment! The treatment is loved by women around the globe due to its transformative and, quite frankly, life-changing results.

 

According to Yahoo, the Brazilian Blowout is a liquid keratin formula that bonds to your hair and creates a protective layer around each strand, effectively diminishing frizz and sealing in the cuticle, thereby protecting your hair against any external damage.

 

It originated in Brazil and uses ingredients indigenous to the country including camu camu, annatto seed, and açai berry. The treatment leaves hair hydrated, less frizzy, and more resilient to heat styling as well as comes with an insanely glossy mirror-like shine.

 

In case you still aren’t sold, here are five reasons you need to book a Brazilian Blowout in Dubai or wherever you are located.

 

1. It’s customizable

 

For many people, a Brazilian Blowout is considered a hair straightening treatment. While allowing those with naturally curly hair to experience smooth, straight locks is undoubtedly the most common use of it; the treatment can be customized for you.

 

If you would rather keep your natural curls or waves intact while smoothing out your hair, the best hairstylist in Dubai can make that happen.

 

2. Requires no downtime

 

Compared to other smoothing procedures, there is no downtime whatsoever. Tuck your hair behind your ears, put your sunglasses on top of your head, wear a ponytail, swim, or exercise immediately after you walk out of the salon with no worries.

 

3. Perfect for all hair types

 

No matter what kind of hair you have, whether it is straight, curly, kinky, coarse, fine or damaged, a Brazilian Blowout can be tailored to work perfectly for you. The treatment is safe for any hair type and helps to improve shine as well as moisture levels.

 

Having one enables you to use less hair care products, decrease daily drying time by half, achieve salon quality hair, and air-dry hair and have it look natural and frizz-free.  

 

If you are looking to grow your hair more quickly, a Brazilian Blowout can assist with this as the treatment reduces split ends meaning you won’t require trims as often.

 

4. Won’t affect your natural curl pattern

 

Your treatment should last anywhere from three to four months. But after this period, your natural curl pattern will return with no line of demarcation. Even if you don’t get your Brazilian Blowout touched up right away, there will be no noticeable line of separation between the previously treated hair and new growth unlike with other relaxing or straightening methods.

 

A Brazilian Blowout is a smoothing treatment that does not contain harsh chemicals such as formaldehyde, and it is a non-permanent treatment that won’t give you roots that must be retouched in a few months.

 

5. Done only by certified professionals

 

Overall, the process takes under two hours but depends on how much hair you have and how thick it is. In the salon, a certified Brazilian Blowout stylist will start by shampooing your hair three or four times to remove any product residue, and to create a base for the treatment to adhere.

 

At this point, working section by section, the Brazilian Blowout formula will be applied from root to tip, then blow-dried smooth. Next, a flat iron heated to 450 degrees will seal the formula in; then your stylist will again rinse your hair. This is then followed by a deep conditioning mask before your hair is once again blow-dried smooth.

 

Unlike other similar treatments, there aren’t any restrictions as to what you can and can’t do after a Brazilian Blowout. You can tie your hair up in a bun or clip it any way you want. You can sweat it out and shampoo, so you won’t have to skip your CrossFit class.

 

And since the treatment is already rinsed out while you are in the salon, you can wait for as long as you want to wash it. Just ensure you are using a sulfate- and chlorine-free formula to extend the pleasant appeal of a Brazilian Blowout.

Feminine Issues Of A Modern Kind

Feminine Issues Of A Modern Kind

Be honest, women; we struggle for our beauty. Anyone who says otherwise is lying. It isn’t easy to be preened and perfect. In fact, a lot of hard work often goes into the effort. And, the battle never ends. The fight only intensifies as the signs of age threaten to come to the fore.

But, many of us pay the price. After years of rigorous routines, it isn’t unusual for them to start taking their toll on our bodies. And, when they do, it can become harder and harder to achieve the image we want. It’s a vicious cycle. And, to help you get off the ride, we’re going to look at a few of the main issues, and how you can get around them.

How is your hair?

Our hair is one of the first things to suffer, and it’s no surprise. While dying hair was once the reserve of those fighting the greys, most of us now turn to this past-time for beauty purposes. It’s just stylish to opt for unnatural colors, such as red and purple. And, as if exposing our hair to toxic chemicals wasn’t enough, we then insist on burning them into place each day. In short; we don’t treat our hair kindly. The good news is, there are easy ways to fix this. The best thing about hair is that it grows all the time. As such, no damage should be permanent. Give your hair time to heal and let your natural color grow out, or dye less often. Think, too, about using something like a keratin shampoo. These work to repair the hair, and also help it appear straight. You can read more about the best keratin options here. In short, though; the right choice could potentially save you having to straighten at all.

 

Not so much fun in the sun

Of course, the damage doesn’t end there. Many of us also fall foul to the idea that tanned skin is healthy skin. How many times in your lifetime have you described a tan as a ‘healthy glow’? Well, it’s time to think again. In reality, a tan is quite the opposite to healthy. Effectively, it means you’ve cooked your skin. Take a moment to think about that. It isn’t good! Imagine the damage that can do in the long-term. Most of us already know that time spent in the sun can drastically age our skin. What less of us realize is how severe that damage can be.

To ensure fun in the sun doesn’t prematurely age your skin, it’s important to take action. For one, reduce your time spent ‘tanning’ as much as you can bear. If you can go without it altogether, your skin will thank you for it. Instead, opt for some of the many tanning creams on the market which achieve the image without the risk. Think, too, about addressing the damage you’ve already done with your skin care. Regular use of moisturizing products can make a huge difference.

5 Ways to Protect Your Hair from Damage While Wearing Clip-In Extensions

By Guest Blogger, Diana C.

5 Ways to Protect Your Hair from Damage While Wearing Clip-In Extensions

 

Clip in hair extensions are an inexpensive and convenient way to add dimension to your hair and to take your appearance to the next level. They’re so easy to insert, remove and style that it’s possible to unintentionally mishandle them and cause damage your own hair in the process.

Protect your hair from damage while wearing clip in hair extensions by doing a few simple things to keep your own hair safe from damage.

Here are just a few things you can do to protect your hair:

  1. Remove clip in extensions carefully

People prefer clip in hair extensions because they are easy to remove but take them out too quickly and you run the risk of taking some of your own hair out with them. Before removing your clip in hair extensions comb or brush your hair smooth and gently separate your hair from the extensions. Create sections in your hair to expose the place where the clip in hair extensions are attached to your hair and gently slide them out of place. Pulling or yanking clip in hair extensions out of your hair or handling them too roughly can cause your hair to break and if done routinely may lead to long term damage.

  1. Choose clip in hair extensions that are lighter in weight

When purchasing clip in hair extensions for regular use go for extensions that weigh less instead of more. Heavier clip in hair extensions have thicker individual strands of hair and are often preferred because they create a greater degree of volume when installed but they can also put stress on your own hair if they are worn daily or even several times per week especially if you have thin or fine hair. Lightweight clip in hair extensions that weigh 120 grams or less put less stress on your hair and can help save your hair from damage.

  1. Eliminate the heat

Frequent use of heat styling tools that are set on high temperatures on clip in hair extensions that are integrated into your hair can cause heat damage and breakage to occur to your own hair. Avoid potential heat related damage to your hair by blow drying, flat ironing or doing other styling with heat styling tools before attaching your clip in hair extensions.

  1. Give your hair a break

Wearing clip in hair extensions all day every day for weeks at a time may take a toll on the health of your own hair. Keep your hair in excellent shape by giving your hair a rest. Wear your hair in flattering braids, twists or upswept hair styles on days when you’re giving your clip in hair extensions a break.

 

  1. Avoid sleeping in your clip in hair extensions

If you fall asleep in your clip in hair extensions you run the risk of getting your extensions tangled during the night or pulling at them while sleeping. Removing your clip in extensions before going to bed at night is highly recommended but if you can’t secure them with a satin bonnet or scarf to keep them in place.

5 Best Wig Styling Tips Ever!

By Guest Blogger Beth M.

5 Best Wig Styling Tips Ever!

Whether you have bought an expensive human hair wig or you have a synthetic one! If you would like to make your wig look promising and real, let me clear this fact to you that it’s all about right styling and having the right tricks to do it up your sleeve.

For now if you can’t have a crash course on wig styling, here are some great ideas on how to tailor a wig! Here is exactly what you need to do, real or synthetic:

  1. Where to Shop?

If you are someone who wants to try a wig on an occasion like Halloween or some other event, you should shop for your wig at a hair store. Don’t buy your wig from a costume store. Whether it’s a seasonal pop-up or it just a usual need, costume shops always overcharge for wigs. Beauty supply stores and hair stores are best to get a nice quality wig at a fine price.

 

  1. Trim the Wig. Wigs are easy to cut and trim. You must wear your wig while having it trimmed or cut by a wig stylist. Some people do use styling heads for this purpose but then you won’t have an idea of the shape which should best suit your face cut. Wear the wig and make sure it’s synced up with your ears and face when its cut.

 

  1. Dye it a different color. If you’re planning on buying a wig and having a colorist color it, look for one with natural hair fibers–you will also be able to heat style natural hair versus burning a synthetic wig,” explains Bb.colorist Luis Ayala. You must buy a natural human hair wig if you want to dye it later.

 

  1. Don’t use just any hair brush! If your wig is tangled, don’t go brushing it with just any kind of brush. To lightly detangle, look to a wide-tooth wet brush, which will be most soft. There are special wig combs specifically designed for wig styling, you may use them.

 

  1. Use a Styling head A styling head is a great help in saving your time with trying new hairstyle. You can always try a new hairstyle on a styling head. If you want to wear hair band or any hair accessory you can also try it out. It really gives you time to wear the right kind of hair do on a particular party or event.

One general wig styling tip that you must remember is that always spray wig hair products 12 inches away from your wig. If you will spray a product in your wig hair close than that you might damage your wig. If you have a synthetic hair wig, don’t use heat or steam on it you will destroy the hair fibers completely. If you want to straighten or curl your wig, make sure it’s a human hair wig.

8 ways to remove dandruff without washing your hair

It is reported that about 50 million Americans are diagnosed with dandruff every year. This is an alert issue as dandruff not only lead to hair damage, but it also makes you feel embarrassed and less confident in public and, it can lead to a further annoying problem like itchiness and dryness to your scalp.

It seems that removing dandruff is a lifetime’s purpose. Even though there is no exact treatment for dandruff caused by scalp psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis, it is quite easy and straightforward to control dandruff once you have realized the cause of this problem. If you have suffered from dandruff before, then you are likely to be in the situation where it is essential to control breakout. Quickly. The time shall not wait for anyone. What should you do if you have a prom, a date or an interview which can be destroyed by dandruff very easily? You understand the feeling dandruff brings right? Nervous. Embarrassed. Helpless. So the question is what you should do when you meet this problem?

Several simple and natural home remedies can help you hide them in the urgent cases without washing hair. And you will be surprised at the outcomes they bring

Wear light-colored clothing

It seems just lovely when you have a date, a prom or an important interview, wearing light-colored dress will be one of an ideal option to let other parties know that you are dandruff-free. The likelihood of being noticed with dandruff will be very low. You can realize dandruff on the hair is because the hair is black or in other dark colors. Therefore, wearing white colored clothing will efficiently help you hide your dandruff quickly when you have something important come up.

Wear a hat, cap or scarf

Instead of wearing white clothing you might choose to wear a hat, scarf or a cap. All of them can hide your hair which means they can hide your dandruff too. No matter what you wear such as a cap, a bowler, it will assist you partially in hiding your dandruff from other people. However, sometimes it can be stranger if you wear a scarf during hot summer days.

 Wear a wig

It might not be everybody’s ideal option. However, it is still useful in some aspects. Wearing a wig can be considered as one of the safest and quickest fixes for your hair when you have dandruff. Moreover, wigs have become more and more fashionable throughout decades. Let’s try and see how natural you look like when wearing a wig.

Use a good hairbrush

Brushing your hair seems to be another excellent choice to get rid of dandruff in seconds. Not only does regular brushing can help distribute your sebum, hair oils, but it also cleans your scalp by removing dead skin cells, dirt, and buildup from the hair. There are two kinds of brushes for those who are suffering from dandruff which is highly recommended. If you have long hair, a boar bristle brush makes an excellent choice whereas thick hair will need large spacing between the bristles. On the contrary, if your hair is short, select a nylon ball tipped smaller plastic brush.

Use a scalp brush

While a boar bristle brush can clean your hair and distribute the oils on your hair, a scalp brush will be able to do the same thing to your hair. It can not only spread your sebum. However, a scalp brush can also invigorate your scalp by getting rid of flakes, buildup, and dirt.

Moisturize your scalp

There are so many things such as hair mask or some other natural home remedies to keep your hair always moisturized. In this article, we will introduce you two most outstanding ways to keep your hair still moisturized.

Shea Butter

Appears widely in both Africa and Asia, shea butter can act as a natural moisturizer as well as medication for centuries. Moreover, raw shea butter is mostly fat extracted from the shea nut – a species that is native to Africa. If your hair has dandruff and dry scalp, you should try shea butter. The butter is high in oleic acid, the excess of which can lead to an outbreak. Therefore, if you have sub derm, you should use other natural remedies rather than shea butter.

Hair mask

Instead of shea butter, you can choose hair masks to cure your dandruff as well. Once incredible thing about this is that it can significantly combat dry scalp. Including a significant amount of oil, the hair mask can help you in the control of dandruff, dry scalp as well as flaky scalp.

Restyle your hair

Similar to wearing a wig, this might not be an optimal choice for some people. However, it can still help you in some aspects. The lesser hair you have, the lesser dandruff you will have. If you do not prefer your hair being cut off, you can just restyle it. Brush it forward or pull it back is your choice.

Use a dry dandruff shampoo

The last choice is to adopt a dry shampoo which is specially formulated for those who suffer from dandruff and dry scalp. Though it is not the fastest choice, you can still expect to be significantly dandruff free in a month or less if choose the appropriate shampoo. Here are several tricks you can consider before purchasing the shampoos.

Go for a gentle and sulfate – free shampoo as strong detergents found in shampoos can lead to irritation which can allow easier invasion of microbes and many other harmful chemical irritants, perpetuating the cycle. Shampoo which brings an organic or natural certification which can guarantee freedom from other irritants. Besides, these shampoos can also bring benefits of healing and soothing effects which come from chamomile, aloe vera and antifungal tea tree.

Avoid washing your hair on a daily basis. A gentle shampoo can assist you in cleaning well and balancing sebum production without stimulating the oily scalp to produce excess oil or an over – dry one to flake more and more. Try to extend washing frequency by 3 – 4 days so that your hair can refresh in between with shampoo which contains dandruff busting herbal properties.

Apply an overnight treatment to begin your dandruff, dry and flaky scalp treatment. You can use your hairbrush to remove any loose flakes and then sparingly apply the herbal balm such as argan oil or coconut oil on the scalp. After that, use the shower cap to cover your hair and wash off your hair in the next morning to get rid of any excess balm. You can consider using Dove Anti Dandruff Shampoo which is one of the most well – known hair products for the use of salicylic acid as well as sulfur/ Salicylic acid does an excellent job in cutting down a number of fungi as it consists of antimicrobial, antiviral and antibiotics properties.

How to Properly Care for Hair Extensions

How to Properly Care for Hair Extensions

 

In today’s age of countless styles and ways to present yourself to the world, we want to take full advantage of all the options we have. And if we’re being honest – how else are we supposed to meet all of the ridiculous expectations the world has? One of those advantages is hair extensions: an easy way to change up your hairstyle in a moment, as well as add volume and length to your hair without the expensive, harsh treatments. But hair extensions are an investment, and just like any other, they need care if you want them to last you a long time. So, let’s see what are the proper ways of taking care of your extensions.

Brush them out

There are two most popular styles of hair extensions: clip-in and sewn-in. If you are using clip-in extensions, you should take them out every night before you go to sleep and brush them out thoroughly. Be gentle when brushing them so that you don’t damage the hair. If you are wearing sewn-in extensions, brush your hair every night all the same, and then loosely braid it or wear soft pigtails, to stop the hair from tangling up.

Wash them regularly

This really only applies to clip-in extensions, since sewn in extensions will be washed whenever you wash your hair. A lot of people think that they don’t need to wash their extensions so often, since they remove them every regularly, or, on the other hand, think that they need to wash them every time they wear them. Depending on how often you wear your extensions, you should wash them anywhere from once a week to once per month. It’s important to remember to always thoroughly brush and detangle the hair before washing it. Next, submerge it in a sink of lukewarm water and use a little bit of paraben- and sulfate-free shampoo, lathering it up and rinsing off. If you prefer, you can apply a little bit of conditioner and treat it as you would your own hair. Don’t use too many products at the same time because you risk damaging or over-moisturizing the extensions.

Style & store

After washing the hair is ready to dry, and stylists recommend to always let the hair air-dry. This might be difficult, especially if you are wearing non-removable extensions, but letting your hair dry on its own is the most harmless way of drying it. After that comes the time to style it, and you might want to style your hair differently each time you wash it. Generally, stylists warn to avoid heat, since it is your hair’s worst enemy, but, if you are using high-quality clip in human hair extensions, and protecting them with some heat spray, you can use low heat tools to curl or straighten the hair. As far as storing the extensions is concerned, you should always store them clean, dry, brushed and ready to use, or you might be met with a moldy mess the next time you want to use them. Store them in an airtight container that fits them perfectly, because you want to avoid the hair getting tangled in a small box or damp from the moisture in the air.

Hair extensions are a great way to change up your look and effortlessly add some volume to your hair. You can use them daily to extend and style your hair, or for special occasions, if your hair is lacking in length or volume for a certain hairstyle you want to try. If you are planning on using them for the first time for a special occasion, either go to a professional or try to create the look at least once before the event, just to make sure you get the hang of it before the big night.
