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!

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.

6 Ways To Be The Most Handsome Version Of You

6 Ways To Be The Most Handsome Version Of You

Men, everyone is different. This is a good thing because every woman has different tastes and preferences; they don’t all fancy David Beckham. That isn’t the only reason you should try and stop modeling yourself on Becks, though. The other reason you need to stop and look for style inspiration elsewhere is simply that you may not be suited for his designer stubble and groomed locks.

Like we said, everyone is different; different face shapes and different body build, and choosing styles that suit what we were given is the only way to accentuate your most handsome of features. That’s where we come in because we’ve got some top tips and tricks to help you look like the best you that there has ever been.

  1. Face Shape

Before you pop into a clothing store or barber’s, your first stop needs to be the mirror. This is because you need to know what face shape you are rocking. Are you oval? Round? Heart shaped? Diamond? Oblong? Or even square? If your eyes are flicking between this and the mirror and you haven’t got the foggiest, then check out this flowchart by thebeautydepartment.com for a better idea.

  1. Hair For Your Face

How you rock your hair is going to have the biggest impact on your face, which is why getting your haircut absolutely spot on is going to be so influential on how handsome you look. The wrong cut can make you look a little, well, off, while these sexy hair tips can make you more sexy. If you’ve got a roundish face, then square it off with a style that is short at the sides and long on top. If you’re facing is more oblong, then a shortcut with the same length on top as on the sides will work wonders. Forget Beckham, it is all about you.

  1. Best Beard Advice

Beards are in. That’s a fact. But knowing which beard-type is best for you isn’t as easy as just growing some facial fur. Royale beard, circle beard, goatee, Van Dyke, Balbo, and anchor; these are just a few of the different style that you can choose from. Luckily, by knowing your face shape, you can use the ULTIMATE beard maintenance guide from 99centrazor.com to get the perfect look to suit you. What you are aiming to do is create a graduated, oval shape for your face.

  1. Get The Glasses Right

Summer is here and that means sunglasses can be added to your hot, hot, hot arsenal. But getting the style of glasses is right is going to have just as much an impact on your face shape as hair or beard. If you’re willing to spend a bit more or sturdy, designer glasses then places like Sunglasses Hut will be able to match a style to you. If you’re like us and just want to get something cool but cheap, then offset what you have. If it is a round face, go with large and square glasses. If you have a squarer face, then a light frame will work better.

  1. Smart Shirts For Smart Looks

Way too many handsome gents don’t realize how much their shirt collars affect their look and accentuate their shape. Yeah, there are different collar shapes and, yeah, which shirt collar you pick matters. Basically, the wider your face is the closer together, more pointed and narrower your collar should be. If you have a more angular face, however, like a Robert Pattinson, then a wider spread collar is going to work better for you.

  1. An Instagram That Suits You

We all use Instagram and Facebook, and we all want to look our best in the photos we upload and share. Luckily you can trick the camera into making you look like that demi-God you have always wanted to be. Slimmer, taller, shorter wider; these are all things you can alter with angles, backgrounds and the clothes you wear. If you want to look slimmer, turn forty-five degrees so that the camera sees that little bit less of you. If you want to look taller, then make sure the camera lens is pointed up at you from waist height or lower. Alternatively, sit down – apparently, the brain doesn’t look for height when people are sat down. When it comes to looking younger, your best bet is to have a subdued background and colorful clothing will help you stand out while also allowing your clothes to be a little distraction. Oh, and you can’t go wrong with black and white can you, let’s be honest.

Where Beauty & Wellness Go Hand In Hand

Where Beauty & Wellness Go Hand In Hand

If you want to find out how to look your best, you are not alone. We all want this, and it can sometimes be hard to know exactly how to achieve it. Fortunately, as time goes on there is more and more information about the many things you can do to improve your looks – and your health. In certain parts of the body, you will find that looking after them is not just a matter of looking good, although that is part of it. It is also a health concern, and taking care of those areas will help you doubly for that very reason. In this article, we are going to look at some of the main things you should be taking care of in this sense, so that you can both look and feel much better in yourself. Let’s have a look and see what we can discover.

pexels-photo-54566Image Source

Hair

Haircare is something that every woman feels expert in – but the fact is, there is always more to learn. If you think you could be taking better care of your hair, then it might be worth going back to basics to see if you are right. Are you doing everything you should be doing to ensure your hair not just looks its best, but remains as healthy as possible too? If you’re unsure, have a look at the following essential advice for taking care of your hair.

First up, let’s look at the act of washing. Knowing how and when to wash your hair is most of the deal when it comes to hair care, so it makes sense to learn this as well as possible. There is plenty to remember here. First of all, you should make sure that you are not using water that is too hot. Hot water can cause heat damage to your hair, and even damage the follicles if you are unlucky. If you look at this Delta in2ition review, you will see that some shower heads are particularly adept at helping you to select the desired temperature – so it might be worth upgrading your shower at some point in the near future. As well as temperature, you should try to keep the amount you wash your hair down – too much is actually very bad for it, so try not to do that. Over-washing has a way of stripping away the natural oils in your hair, and you will probably not be too delighted at the way your hair looks as a result of this. Your hair could become brittle and damaged, something which nobody wants.

When it comes to shampoo and conditioner, we all know that it’s something of a crapshoot. However, with plenty of trial and error you will soon come to a product combination which is right for you, and once you find it you should make sure to stick to it, unless you feel that there is something which looks even better. Knowing your products well could really make a world of difference when it comes to maintaining your hair as well as possible.

If you do not already do this, be sure to wash your hair brush regularly too. That way, it will be much more effective as a brush, and you won’t be dragging your hair through its own old oils, something which can result in damaged and thinned hair.

Skin

Hair is one thing, but what about looking after your skin? Just as with hair, looking after your skin is important for both health and beauty reasons, and yet it is another area where people tend to not know exactly what they are doing. This might actually be a result of misinformation – this is one of those subjects where you do hear conflicting information from many different sources, so it is worth taking everything you hear with a pinch of salt. That being said, there are certain things which you can basically guarantee on if you want better skin. Let’s take a look at what those might be.

The number one concern when it comes to skin is the sun. Over-exposure to the sun can result in a great many problems, the worst probably being cancer, and many more besides. Be sure to take all necessary steps to limit the UV that gets to your skin. This means covering up, particularly when it is bright and sunny, and of course using sun protection whenever possible. As long as you limit sun damage, you are doing most of what you need to to keep your skin in good condition.

If you are a smoker, you might want to consider stopping if you want your skin to look better. It is a fact that smoking drastically reduce the skin’s natural elasticity, and reduces the blood flow to the skin, meaning it gets fewer nutrients as a result.

Teeth

Finally, let’s take a look at teeth. We all know that looking after your teeth is hugely important, but how many of us do everything we should towards that end? As it happens, looking after your teeth is not all that hard, so long as you know what you are doing. Regular visits to the dentist is the number one thing to ensure you are doing. You should also make sure that you are brushing twice a  day. That much is clear to anyone – but are you certain that your brushing technique is good enough? As it happens, many people do not actually know how to properly brush their teeth, and this is something that can lead to some serious problems over time.

pexels-photo-298611Image Source

As well as brushing, be sure to floss frequently – every other day is usually ideal – and to make sure that you use mouthwash everyday as well. Similarly, taking care with what you eat, and reducing your smoking habit if you have one, will both help hugely towards the same end. End result: a healthier, happier and prettier smile, and that’s something that most women would agree they are keen to have.

Quick Fixes To Solve The Most Common Beauty Nightmares

Quick Fixes To Solve The Most Common Beauty Nightmares

woman-portrait-girl-color-90754Photo:

Every woman knows that looking her best makes her feel her best. Consequently, millions of us invest a huge amount of time and money into perfecting our appearances. Getting it right when things are going well is one thing. But maintaining that sense of confidence when problems occur is another altogether.

 

Throughout your life, you will inevitably face a number of beauty-related problems. While the seriousness of those issues can vary massively, the need to find a quick solution is always the same. Here are some of the most common issues, along with what can be done to overcome them.

 

Skin Blemishes

 

As the biggest organ of the human body, the skin is something that requires constant care. Even with those daily rituals, though, you cannot prevent all blemishes. After all, the skin is a barrier that is constantly exposed to the elements.

 

Minor skin issues can range from an outbreak of acne to dryness and blotches. In addition to normal hydration, these home remedies can go a long way to repairing the damage. Meanwhile, natural looking foundations and subtle makeup can cover the issue without making it obvious.

 

If you suffer from long-term skin problems, such as eczema, you may wish to consult a medical expert. Similarly, if moles and similar blemishes are causing a problem, getting them removed could be a great solution.

 

Bad Hair Days

 

Most women will encounter the occasional bad hair day. In some circumstances, the quickest way to forget about this is to tie your hair back. But what about when you need to look your best for a date, family event, or business meeting?

Whether you’ve had a bad haircut, suffer from a condition like alopecia, or just can’t get your hair to sit right doesn’t matter. Having a plan B on standby will provide a quick answer to those problems. Something like a lace front wig is a good choice that can be used in a variety of circumstances. Whether it’s a one-off or an extended solution is up to you.

 

Knowing that your hair is in good health can settle the nerves regarding your general appearance too. With that added confidence, any other blemishes will feel far less problematic.

 

Discoloured Fingernails

 

Yellow fingernails are a very unattractive sight. If you are a smoker, this should be just another incentive to finally kick the habit for good. Even if it means vaping for the short-term, the benefits will be seen in a matter of days.

 

Many nail gels will cause problems too, especially the dark coloured ones. This guide to whitening your nails should help you remove the bulk of those stains within a matter of minutes. In future, adding an extra base coat to protect your nail could make a world of difference.

 

Nail strengtheners and anti-biting chemicals can help the long-term health too. Moreover, those ideas can also be implemented to help your toenails. It might seem like a small improvement, but the physical and emotional rewards are huge.

The Truth Behind Hair Growth

The Truth Behind Hair Growth

Every head of hair has a process of growth, rest and shed. Genetics determine our hair growth. For example, black women know their hair tends to grow slow. Asian women know their hair usually has a fast growth, but lacks volume. But no matter what your nationality is, this just shows our ancestors passed down the head of hair we’ve been given. So, I guess all we can do is give thanks or blame our genes on the length and styles we are able to achieve. But is there a natural way to help our hair grow better?

Look at it this way, we have this head of hair as our birthright, but now add the abuse we put onto the hair’s cortex with our styling tools, drying heat, relaxers and volumizers. We cause the hair to weaken or break where we don’t want it to. But there are some things we can do to help it grow to it maximum capacity.

·        Maintain a healthy scalp

·        Keep the strands moisturized

·        Remove breakage before it can split the strand any further.

Bringing back health and shine into any hair type can be challenging because some products don’t seep into the strand. In fact, some products will lay on the hair until it eventually washes away. Now those with black hair already know firsthand, their hair is naturally dry and must be moisturized daily by oils that can penetrate into the hair shaft to prevent breakage. Natural oils like coconut oil has the ability to soak into the shaft and repair inside, out.

Those born with straight hair that lacks the volume, might not want to add too much oil to the shaft, but may still suffer from scalp issues that need attention. Coconut oil helps with battling bacteria and dandruff which causes excess yeast on the scalp. In recurring cases of flaky scalps, it best to take a look at your diet and talk to your doctor about adding in an oral supplement or probiotic to combat the yeast overload. Scalp issues can start the hair off in a weaken state, which will deter your hair growth goals.

If you are trying to reach as certain length of hair growth to achieve a specific hairstyle, remember patience is key or it will be like watching paint dry. Have short-term goals in between your long-term goal, if need be.

Look at short pixie styles that will grow nicely into a slick bob style before reaching the shoulder length layer you desire.  

If you have a specific date in mind for your hair to be a certain length, there’s still the options of the extensions. Investing in natural hair extensions can be a great way to go, especially if your genes determine your goals are slightly far-fetched. You can find beautiful choices in weaves or clips. Online places like, https://www.xoticahair.com/ has a gorgeous selection that ships free to the US and Canada. You can also talk with your stylist to see what extensions could work best for your hair type.

We all know hair trends change, but investing in natural hair extensions, the extensions have the ability to change since it’s well, …natural. It can be a great savings in the long run.

Growing Old? You Can Be Beautiful As Well As Wise

Growing Old? You Can Be Beautiful As Well As Wise

As we grow older we acquire many applaudable attributes. We’re wiser, smarter, and more grateful for everything that we have. But one thing that doesn’t age quite as well are our looks. When we’re young we have everything on our side, but as time goes on things tend to turn on us somewhat, and we can sometimes end up looking not as attractive as we’d like. However, that doesn’t mean we have to give up on our looks. In the 21st century there is no excuse for us to not look out best, regardless of how old we are! Here’s how.

pexels-photo-112324Source: Pexels.com

Staying Active

Yup, you might have noticed that you don’t look quite as youthful as you once did. But think about it: when we’re young, we’re always running around, being active, regular men and women about town. As we age, we become more sedentary. If you want to stay youthful and beautiful, you should take up an exercise routine that’s right for you, one that’ll have your face looking fresh and your body look good. You’ll be glowing, basically, and everyone’s drawn to someone who glows!

Science Has the Answer

Of course, even if we work out as often as we want to we sometimes can’t mask some factors that we’d rather live without. If you can’t shift weight in one particular part of your body (you can’t, unfortunately, target weight loss when you work), you can always use a service like  GastroCenter’s Smart Lipo treatments and trim away the fat in those areas where the fat is hard to shift. Similarly, if your issue is hair loss – which affects around 50% of women and 80% of men during their life times – then you can look at consulting a hair transplant specialist and add some extra hair to boost a youthful look.

Being a Fashionista

There comes an age where we kind of slip out of the trend scene, where we’re not too sure what’s hot and what’s not. It makes sense, especially as we have so many other things going on in our lives. However, staying abreast of the clothes that’ll make us look at our best actually isn’t all that difficult – dedicate some time to reading the best clothing blogs for older people before you go shopping and you’ll look great when you return from the stores.

Living Well

Of all the things we can do, few affect our beauty greater than our lifestyles. If we eat well and don’t drink too much alcohol, we can carry on staying youthful for longer. If we live the lifestyle of a 25 year old, we won’t. Take care of yourself and you’ll naturally stay youthful and beautiful.

Accepting Who You Are

Of course, you can’t fix every single ailment. At some point you’ll need to learn to accept some of the flaws that can’t be fixed. Part of being beautiful is having confidence, and if you have confidence then people will notice it. Sometimes it’s much more about our attitude to ourselves and life than we think!

Are You Spending Too Much on Beauty Products?

Are You Spending Too Much on Beauty Products?

Many of us spend far too much on beauty products. Those hair products, lipsticks and creams don’t come cheap. And you need to find new ways to save money on those products if you don’t want to go broke buying all of the items you want and need. Here are some great tricks to help you do exactly that.

Leave Items in Your Online Cart for the Possibility of Discounts

This is a great trick for anyone who likes to buy most of their beauty products online. If you select the things you want, and then put them in your online cart, you can leave them there and see what happens. It’s possible that nothing happens. But sometimes, the company will send you an email reminding you to complete your purchase. And when they do this, they might send you a discount code. It’s a nice little way to get 10% off your purchase once in awhile. That won’t be possible every time, but sometimes you get lucky, and it’s worth a try for sure.

Look for Some Cool DIY Solutions

You can often take a DIY approach to makeup and beauty products. This could be as simple as buying a cheap item and making it a bit better by adding things or just changing how it functions. There are plenty of examples of these DIY Crafts online that you can follow and make use of if you want to. It doesn’t cost much money to create something new and unique that you wouldn’t be able to buy from any shop or online store, so it’s definitely worth giving this a try if you’re trying to spend less on those expensive branded products.

Make the Most of Free Samples

Free samples offer you a great way to make sure that you don’t waste money on a product that’s not really right for you. The unique thing about many beauty products is that you can’t really be sure whether or not they’re right for you until you apply them and see what you think. They might work better for you than you expected. Or they might be far worse than you had hoped. You just don’t know until you try them out, and that’s why you should always make the most of free samples. It makes sense to do this, so don’t hesitate to pick up samples before buying.

Scrape Out Every Last Bit of What You Paid For

Most of us throw away a lot of what we paid for when it comes to beauty products. That’s because squeezing every last drop out of those bottles and tubes can be pretty much impossible. But if you want to get the most for your money, you need to find a way to make use of it all. The best way to do this is to literally cut open the bottle or tube with a pair of scissors and scrape out the last of whatever’s in there. That way, nothing will go to waste.

What’s Shadow Root Effect?

By, Tia Cristy

What is Shadow Root Effect?

Have you ever had an amazing haircut or color? I have. With my career, I’ve had to travel a lot. Years ago, I went to a salon, Jean Raymond and had an amazing hair experience. All this time later, I popped in the other day and surprisingly found the same kind of remarkable talent I did all those years ago.

Brantley greeted me with a sweet smile as he had me sit in his chair. His southern twang makes him instantly endearing, but finding out about his early career in NYC and his move to the Philadelphia area, makes him cutting edge. He decided to go with the trendy technique of root shadowing on my blonde locks. When it came to the cut. He didn’t feel the need to over-cut my hair, like some stylist have done in the past. He listened to what I was trying to achieve and made a conscious decision that he didn’t need to over-exhaust himself or appear dramatic in his snips for me to receive exactly what I was hoping for. And when it came to my blowout, there are no words!

So, what is Root Shadowing or Shadow Root effect?

qtq80-GCMlFk

It’s a great coloring technique, bringing a crown of essence, literally, to the hair. The hair will maintain a dark crown with lighter or bolder colors down the shaft. It brings new life to seasoned trends of ombres or balayage by starting with a traditional root application and then pluck or sweep the color in. This effect makes the new growth blend in smoother and more natural, than having a blunt line. Don’t get me wrong, the options don’t have to be neutral at all. Some people are going very dramatic in their shadows with an inch or so, of shadow. Pair the shadow with a vivid color, and the results can be over-the-top fabulous.  Whether you are looking for a natural look or an iconic statement, shadowing results can be extraordinary.

qtq80-XQ1kaX

Who has been seen with root shadowing?

Celebs like Juliane Hough, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry and Blake Lively have rocked the shadow with not just blonde locks, but with red, pinks, purples and greys.

Is it easy to maintain?

 

qtq80-TtUL9o

Absolutely! And depending on the shadow length you are trying to achieve, touchups aren’t needed as often as regular color applications.

Thanks to Brantley, Erik and Jean Raymond for the beauty treatment. Brantley is taking on new clients at this time. If you are visiting or living in the Philadelphia, Pa. area, setup an appointment now. Haircuts start at $50 and new clients who reach out to Jean Raymond today, can get a $10 off coupon!

Nourish Dry Winter Hands

Nourish Dry Winter Hands

Winter comes and the skin does it’s best to protect itself, but we’ve all been there… painful, dry, cracked hands.

What can we do to nourish them in a way that’s long-lasting?

Using a hand cream can work for a matter of hours to minutes at a time. Replenishing oils is the only way to get down past the first layer of skin. Drinking plenty of water helps keep your skin hydrated. Consuming enough liquids during the day in the winter is just as important as getting your fluids in the warmer months.

If you need to apply something to the skin’s surface, using natural oils is the way to go. Most of us have them right in our kitchen. Lathering hands in coconut or olive oil can bring great benefit when left on the skin for at least ten minutes.

One oil I found to have amazing benefits is Argan Oil. (Greenesthetics.com has a great selection of sizes and prices.) It penetrates down deep, thorough several layers of skin. Here’s the bonus though, it absorbs into the skin so well, I don’t need to rinse my hands after applying.

You can use all these natural oils on the body, face and hair with fabulous results and ultimate protection from winter damage.
