The Benefits of Organic Ingredients

We all know that “going green” is the big trend right now. According to the Organic Farming Research Foundation, over the last 10 years, sales of organic products have increased at least 20% every year. It’s without a doubt that consumers want to be eco-conscious and eco-friendly, but we have to ask…do organic beauty products really work as effectively as non-organic beauty products? And even more importantly, do they leave results? We did some serious research and talked to the hottest organic hair and beauty gurus, including hair stylist Jamal Hammadi and Zaega.com founder, Melissa Christenson and discovered that using organic ingredients isn’t just good for the environment; it’s great for your hair too! Unlike synthetic hair care formulas that can strip your hair of its natural moisture and shine, all-organic shampoos and conditioners, including Hamadi Organics products, contain no harsh chemicals and use earth derived ingredients that are proven to repair, revitalize and rejuvenate your hair! Below are the main organic ingredients used in Hamadi’s line as well as many other eco-friendly beauty products. Check out the benefits! Our favorites are ginger, lemon and ylang ylang!
Aloe - Soothing, moisturizing, rejuvenating for skin and scalp; natural humectant – draws in moisture for smooth, sleek hair
Anise – Clarifying, concentration improving, oil controlling, dandruff minimizing
Avocado – Softening, regenerating, smoothing and soothing; rich in vitamins A, D, and E

Hair Health: A Curly Girls Secret To Having Beautiful Gorgeous Full Thick Long Hair

30 Jun Natural-Curly-Hair-4059658

What’s your go-to style? Hair up or down? 
“Down and wild.”

Do you have any hair icons that helped inspire your look? 
“Neneh Cherry, Lisa Bonet, and Cree Summer.”

How long did it take to get your hair to this length? 
“It took almost four years. I used to have bangs and crazy layers for years, but I wanted to grow it out to have sexy, hippie hair. It takes forever to grow out tightly curled hair like mine, because it never looks like it’s growing. Curly hair is really is so much longer then it seems. If I straightened my hair, it would probably be past the middle of my back.”

Do you have any secret styling weapons? 
“I cannot go without Paul Mitchell The Conditioner Leave-In Moisturizer. Hands down, it’s the best leave-in conditioner I have ever used. I drench my hair in it! Also, my natural hair color has always been a sandy-blondish color, and growing up in California, I was always in the sun. So, to intensify that color, in the summer I spray on lemon juice and go to the beach. It totally creates a natural ombre look.”

Do you ever flirt with the idea of chopping your hair? 
“I did that once and it was totally Babs in A Star is Born. I wouldn’t do it again because it takes forever to grow.”

What are the hazards to having long hair? Any horror stories? 
“My hair is really wild. So if I walk under trees or something, you better believe that when I wash it, twigs come out in the shower. And one time, I brushed my hand through the front of my hair and there was a bee stuck in it. That freaked me out!”

What do you love about having long hair? 
“I love that it’s like a natural accessory. It goes perfect with my personal style and out of all of my hair-dos, this is my most favorite. It’s so fancy free.”

What’s your everyday hair routine? 
“I wake up and put a little BioSilk Therapy serum in the palm of my hands, run through my tendrils, and go.”

Do you use any special tricks to combat hair issues and keep it healthy? 
“I always deep condition and when I’m in the shower, I detangle my hair with a very wide-tooth comb. I also let my hair air dry (it takes about six hours), so I take a shower at night and go to bed with it wet. When I wake up in the morning, it’s dry and the curls are perfect.”

Besides your hair, what’s your signature makeup look? 
“My signature makeup look is kohl eyeliner from Pakistan (I buy it on eBay), MAC’s Cremeblush in Cheery (it’s been discontinued, but I can still find it online), and Nivea lip balm. My lips are naturally very pink, so if I wear lipstick, I put foundation on my lips first, then apply the color. Sometimes—when I pull my hair back,I wear MAC’s red Ruby Woo lipstick and mascara, and that’s it.”

Hair Beauty Tips: 5 Inexpensive Ways To Care For Your Hair

2 Jun Hair-Style-Tips-100293

 

Your hair is your crowning glory. Look after it and it will shine for all the world to see. You don’t always need expensive treatments, or visits to a hair salon to manage your hair professionally. There’s so much you can do yourself.

 

1. For shiny, healthy hair think first of your body’s intake. Your hair is really just a reflection of what you are inside. A good balanced, nutritious and healthy diet will do more to make your hair shine than any shampoo or conditioner. And drink eight to ten glasses of water a day too; hair is 25% water, so don’t let yours go thirsty!

 

2. Dry your hair after washing in the ambient temperature of your room after using an absorbent towel to soak up the excess moisture, but don’t rub hard. If possible, don’t use blow-drying, flat irons, curling irons or hot rollers. Artificial heating will leave your hair brittle and damaged in time. Be natural whenever you can.

 

3. Prevent unnecessary hair damage by using the right kind of hairbrush. Only comb wet hair with a wide-tooth comb, combing from end to root, but avoiding touching the root. Detangling wet hair with a hard steel comb can create a lot of damage, so don’t!

 

4. Remove trichoptlosis, or split ends, like this: take small sections of your hair and carefully twist them in a gentle downward motion. The split ends will stick out. Using sharp scissors, carefully cut into the twisted section, but not right through, to remove the damaged cuticles and leave a natural layered look. Cut roughly the same amount from each twist to balance the effect.

 

5. Hair loss can be slowed, or even reversed by applying a few simple tips, though they probably won’t cure an underlying condition. Biotin can help to regenerate hair follicles: blend bananas with honey, yoghurt and low-fat milk, and drink it daily. Supplements such as Vitamin B6, zinc and saw palmetto will help too, but eliminating stress and getting plenty of sleep may work just as well.

 

We are all obsessed with our hair, whether we are 9 or 90, male or female. Look after yourself first and foremost and your hair will reflect that care and attention. The Biblical Samson’s strength lay in his fine flowing hair. Your hair reflects your strength too.

Update Your Daily Beauty Routine For Spring And Summer Months

13 May Spring-Beauty-routine

Now that the last traces of winter are gone for good, you can pack away your cold-weather beauty regimen too (well, at least for the next six months!). Warmer temps and the changes in climate call for a few tweaks to your daily routine. Here, advice from the pros for updating your skin, hair and makeup to welcome the season.

Hydrate Strands

Rescue your winter-parched hair from months of bouncing back and forth between icy outdoor air and drying indoor heat, says Matrix artistic director Nick Stenson, owner of Chicago’s Caviar Salon. A conditioning mask can rejuvenate dry hair by restoring shine and vitality, says Stenson. Try Oscar Blandi Trattamento di Jasmine Smoothing Hair Treatment ($26; OscarBlandi.com). It repairs damaged hair by delivering intense moisture, resulting in a silky-soft and shiny mane.
Trim Your Tresses

Even if you’re not ready for a whole new ’do, a good trim can bring your hairstyle back to life, says Stenson. “On average, hair grows at a rate of about a half-inch per month. That winter outgrowth has been subjected to regular wear and tear as well as the ravages of wind and changing weather,” he says. Getting rid of that last inch or so will make your mane look healthier and fuller. Use a product like MATRIX Sleek.look Sealing Serum ($15; Matrix.com for salon locations) to protect against future damage without weighing hair down.

Brighten Up Your Locks

After months of gray days, “mimic what the sun does naturally by adding dimensional highlights to your hair,” says Stenson. “Even a few well-placed foils around the face will brighten up your complexion and accentuate eyes and cheekbones,” he says. If you’re a bit shy about color, ask your stylist to try a demi-permanent color, which is ammonia-free and gentler on your hair, to add subtle tones. Or try an at-home highlighting kit, like L’Oréal Paris Touch-On Highlights ($12.99; Drugstore.com). It comes with a small fine-tooth plastic brush that fits right on your fingertip, so you can easily control where you put the highlighting mixture.

Give Your Hair a Chance to Breathe

Stop fighting the weather and let your hair dry naturally, says stylist and curl expert Ouidad. “When you let your hair air-dry, the scalp’s natural oils have a chance to penetrate strands to help nourish any damage caused by hot tools,” she says. But when it gets warmer, there’s more humidity in the air, which means more frizz. The best way to control curly or coarse hair that dries au naturel is to use a product that repels humidity, like Ouidad Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel ($19.80; Ouidad.com). The formula blocks out excess humidity that creates frizz and flyaways by protecting the hair shaft and preventing strands from expanding.

Create a Lighter Canvas

Just as you change your wardrobe for warmer weather, your skin needs a lighter coating of makeup too, says celebrity makeup artist Jackie Gomez, whose clients include Beyoncé and Marisa Miller. Instead of sticking with foundation, which is great for winter months but too heavy for springtime, add a tinted moisturizer to your daily routine. “These formulas are sheer but still hydrating enough to provide your skin with an even tone and fresh look,” says Gomez. “They balance your complexion and make you look dewy rather than cakey or greasy,” she says. Try Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 ($14.99; Drugstore.com). It’s made with light diffusers that brighten and smooth your skin tone.

Get a Creamy Flush

Cream blushes tend to last longer than powder formulas when your skin gets warmer, says Gomez. A brighter color, like a pop of pink or peach on the apples of your cheeks, “will make you look more fresh and youthful,” she says. Try Laura Geller Air Whipped Mousse Cheek Color ($26; QVC.com). It’s sheer, lightweight, loaded with vitamins A, C and E, and all you need to do is swipe it on your cheeks with your fingertips.

Go for Gilded Shades

Bronze and gold hues in eyeshadow, lipgloss and bronzer are flattering on every skin tone, says Gomez. The beauty of these shades is that they evoke the look of a tan without your having to step out in the sun. Nervous about the shimmery shades? Gold shadow doesn’t have to be bold. If you wear a subtle swipe across the lid, it can be sophisticated enough for the office. Try Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Bronzer, Blush and Eyeshadow in Vegas Strip ($11.99; Drugstore.com). It has everything you need for a pretty look in one compact.

Slough Away Dead Skin

Spring is the perfect time to get rid of dull winter skin and increase cell turnover to make way for a fresh, radiant complexion, says Heather Woolery-Lloyd, MD, director of Ethnic Skin Care at the University of Miami. Gently exfoliate the skin with a product that’s not too harsh or irritating. Try Specific Beauty Exfoliating Cleansing Cloths ($6.99; SpecificBeauty.com). They contain aloe, green tea and vitamin E, and have textured beads on one side to gingerly exfoliate and rejuvenate your skin.

Forgo Heavy Face Cream

Switch from a heavy winter face cream to a lighter lotion so you don’t clog pores in warmer weather, says Dr. Woolery-Lloyd. Since the temperature is more humid, you won’t have to worry about your complexion getting as dry. Try Neutrogena Healthy Defense Liquid Moisturizer SPF 50 with Helioplex ($14; Neutrogena.com). This lightweight daily moisturizer is noncomedogenic, so it won’t cause breakouts, and it provides a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin from harsh UVA and UVB rays.

Clean Your Skin More Thoroughly

As the mercury rises, your skin naturally produces more oil. This means you’ll need to cleanse away sweat and grime more deeply than you would in the winter, says Dr. Woolery-Lloyd. Skin can handle a more penetrating cleaning in spring and summer because there’s more humidity in the air, so your complexion is less likely to dry out. Try Clean & Clear Advantage 3-in-1 Foaming Acne Wash ($6.49; Drugstore.com). Ingredients like salicylic acid help prevent future breakouts while a special complex dissolves surface oil.

Mary Louise Parker Experienced Hair Loss From Brazilian Hair Treatment M

13 Apr Mary-Lousie-Parker-203948

In a recent interview with The New York Times actress Mary Louise Parker (MLP) revealed some of her hair and beauty secrets to Tina Turnbow, a makeup artist who has worked with Mary Louise.

Mary Louise Parker’s Hair Fall Out From The Past

During the interview Mary Louise admitted to having a recent beauty mishap which involved her hair. She said that “not trusting my instincts – letting my vanity take over – and having the Brazilian Straightening Treatment (BST).” She explained “I’ve experienced hair fall-out in the past, and it is not fun. This treatment (BST) resulted in more. My advice: don’t do it!”

When I read the interview I immediately texted one of Mary Louise’s long time celebrity hairdressers and asked him if he had applied the Brazilian to the Weeds star. He said “no, she had the treatment done in New York” where she spends most of her time and “not in California” where he normally styles her hair.

He also confirmed that initially she told him she loved the Brazilian treatment until she started experiencing problems and hair loss.

Seaweed And Tumeric As Hair Growth Aides

Mary Louise confirmed during the interview that she carries “Sunscreen and dried seaweed for my daughter. She loves seaweed. And this herbal juice elixir with tumeric — amazing stuff.”

Note to Mary Louise, seaweed is an excellent food for helping to regrow lost hair. Ditto for tumeric. And yes, the Brazilian Keratin treatments may actually cause accelerated hair shedding and loss as a side effect of the treatment which has become controversial due to questions about formaldehyde.

Miss Delaware Kayla Martell Has Alopecia Areata

25 Jan Kayla-Martell-Miss-Delaware-203456

Beauty pageants evoke images of flawless women in amazing shape, perfectly made-up and coifed, right?

Yet one beauty queen vying for the Miss America title in Las Vegas this Saturday night has barely any hair on her head.

Kayla Martell, Miss Delaware, has been bald for half of her 22 years — she has alopecia areata, a rare condition that results in unexplained hair loss. But that’s not stopping her from competing for her lifelong dream.

Martell, who competed in her first pageant when she was 13, has always competed while wearing a wig, though she prefers to go bare in her personal life.

“When I’m home with my family, I’m always without my wig — that’s who I am,” Martell told TODAYshow.com. “If I’m practicing dance or at the gym, I don’t wear it.

“By the time I was 13, my hair was out completely,” she explained. “The thought of getting a wig never crossed my mind at all. My mother first brought up the suggestion and brought home this awful brown wig. I don’t know why, because I’m naturally blond and everyone in my family is blond.

“I wore it to school, but took it off in the middle of the day, put it in my backpack and never looked back.”

However, when she’s on the pageant circuit or making appearances as Miss Delaware, it’s a different story. “As Miss Delaware, I wear it 98 percent of the time. It’s important that people recognize you, so I wear the same hairstyle each time,” she explained. “I don’t want it to be about my hair.” Or lack thereof.

Wearing a wig comes with challenges, like styling it. “I didn’t have hair for half my life; I didn’t have the first idea about how to style hair,” Martell admitted. “My first curling iron was given to me at Christmas.” Read More………..

 

Summary: Many women can admit that we all tend to fall in love with our hair. Making our hair top importance to our daily routine of beauty! Most women and men take pride in their hair. We identify ourselves through our hair.

It’s not until you personally go through losing your hair or thinning out hair that you can absolutely relate to what it’s like to be that person without hair!

Kayla Martell share’s her personal story of living life in the beauty world without hair! It takes a lot of confidence to identify yourself as that person who solely believe in who he or she is without the thought of hair. She finished in the top 10 at the Miss America Pageant January 15th, 2011.

I had my personal life experience where I experienced extensive amount of hair shedding that thinned out the front line of my hair.

Many year’s later and after extensive testing. My hair thinning has slowed down! Stress played a huge roll in my life as well as the lack of vitamins and iron!

We all love our hair after all it’s what shapes us into who we are daily!

We look at it when we get up and we look at it when we goto bed!

No matter what your life experience maybe!  Step into your zone! Love you and be the best you that you can be!

Life may have took your hair but it didn’t take your heart, your passions, and your zest for a great life!

May everyone  have  good health and wellness and happy and healthy living this year!

Sincerely,

Vfare36~
