We always think the grass is greener on the other side, right? If your hair is limp and fine, you wish desperately for more body and volume. Your hair may grow at a snail’s pace while you dream of gaining inches. So much of our confidence is tied to our hair, and yet we somehow manage to always find something wrong with it.
Every girl loves togrow hair fasterand have long, smooth and silky hair. To achieve this, they often look for medical supplements or try several hair products that are advertised to magically enhance the hair growth process.
This often leads to stress and disappointment. The reason being several controllable and uncontrollable factors affect hair growth.
Being stuck inside for weeks on end doesn’t make us want to style our hair in cute styles and live our best hair lives - which is totally understandable. As some areas are going into month three of quarantine or stay at home orders - the boredom is rising, and playing around with different hairstyles doesn’t seem to be such an impossible task. In fact - this is actually the perfect time to play around and perfect your technique! Staying indoors for the most part means not being around others who might judge or make you feel self-conscious about your style. Instead of rocking that messy bun for the fourth (fifth, even?) day in a row, let down your locks and play around with a few of these fun styles - we’ll even give you some awesome video step by step guides to show you the way to rockin’ quarantine hair.
If there's one thing I know, it's that natural hair needs correct care - which means taking protection to the next level and not just assuming that the products and techniques you are using are right. When it comes to styling natural hair, the variety can be endless, but if you are not taking protection seriously, you may end up with damaged strands and regrets.
Do you want to stop processing your hair with relaxers, keratin treatments, or other chemical processes to keep it straight? Maybe your hair is damaged from all the processing and you want to take a break, or perhaps you are in the mood to rock your natural texture.
Since we love to talk about all things hair, and it is not every day that hair is a part of the news, we have decided to talk about natural hair discrimination and the passing of California’s Crown Actlaw.
Before we get into talking about this newly passed law, we should talk about what hair discrimination is.
Almost everyone with curly or coily hair has wished their hair was straight at one point in their life. Whether it was on a bad hair day that you had an important meeting or event, or on wash day when your arms start to tire from holding them up for hours.
Having textured hair is a constant inward tug-of-war battle. You love the volume and versatility of your hair, but you hate the hours it takes to do it.
The idea of cutting your hair is already terrifying. The idea of bringing scissors to the curls you work so hard to maintain -- even more terrifying.
However, skipping a trim or cut can cost you healthy locks. If you have a certain haircut, they are important because styles have to be maintained.
But more importantly, regular haircuts are the only way to get rid of those pesky split ends that are causing your ends to be fragile and frizz.
If you do not get a regular haircut to chop off your split ends your hair will not grow the way you want it to. Plus, if you feel like your hair looks frizzy or damaged, getting a haircut can help restore your healthy shine.
Even if you have curly hair you cannot skip a dreaded haircut, the deva cut (or curly cut) was born.
Hair growth is one of the most pressing of the hair trials and tribulations. You feel like your hair growth is stagnant. That no matter what you do (like all the promising hair masks) your hair just won’t go past the length that it is now. But like anything else, it can be figured out.
There are plenty of reasons why hair decides not to grow past a certain length. Anything from your diet, chemical imbalances to the products you may be using can make it challenging for your hair.
Dry shampoo...for the straight/wavy haired beauties – this product is a lifesaver. Even those with curly and coily hair may find dry shampoo in their arsenal of hair supplies! Unlike regular shampoo which strips oils from the scalp and roots of your hair, dry shampoo simply absorbs the oil at the roots of hair which allows you to keep rocking your style for longer without drying out your ends.
Have you ever felt overwhelmed at the thought of shopping for hair products? There are an innumerable amount of brands and products out there that the search can seem daunting. It can be even more challenging if you are on a budget but are looking for products to solve specific problems for your hair. Store bought products can range in price. They also can fall on the spectrum anywhere between all natural to 100% chemicals. The only way to find out is to read the ingredients.
We have all been here before – facing the struggle of deciding whether to hit the gym or skip it because there is no time for a wash + style before evening plans. One of the trickiest parts of having hair is deciding what exactly to do with it during a workout, and how to avoid washing it daily after a sweat session. It can seem kind of like a lose-lose situation. No one wants to wash their hair after every workout (hello dry hair!), but it seems just as daunting to find an easy way to style hair for the gym and wear easily out in public afterwards.
