3 DIY Hair Masks for Dandruff

You know what isn’t sexy?

Dandruff.

Those nasty, white flakes of dead skin that fall from your scalp and land directly on your shoulders for the whole world to see. 

Above and beyond being embarrassing, dandruff is itchy and uncomfortable, and an ongoing issue for so many people out there.

We’ve all seen enough Head & Shoulders commercials to know that there are plenty of shampoos on the market for this, but do they actually work and are they worth your money? [Keep Reading]

Winter Haircare – Fighting the Frizzies

Winter Haircare - Fighting the Frizzies

As seasons change, so does the way your skin and hair react. I’ve found that warmer climates suit my body better. My hair looks lush, my skin soft and supple.

In the cold, harsh winter weather…well…that’s a completely different story. My hair gets brittle and frizzy, and my skin puckers up with dehydration. It’s not pleasant.

And while I could go on and on about dry skin, we’re talking winter haircare today. [Keep Reading]

The No Poo Method: Why It’s Time to Ditch Your Shampoo

Written by

No Poo Method

Ok, so it seems like all I’m seeing over the interwebs lately is this shampoo (or lack thereof…) phenomenon called “No Poo.”

To be honest, the first time I saw a post on my Facebook about someone sharing their ‘no poo’ story I was aghast. I mean, really people – no one needs to hear about your bathroom activity.

BUT, then I realized they were talking about shampoo….thank goodness!

You see, we’ve known for a long time that many of our fave shampoo brands are full of nasty ingredients. Chemical ingredients. Toxic ingredients.

So why the heck do we continue to use them? Is it because we didn’t realize there was a more natural shampoo alternative or because it’s just so damn easy to buy one and ignore the ramifications? [Keep Reading]

Summer Beauty Trends for 2014

Summer Beauty Trends for 2014Don’t you just love how the seasons change? Especially when it brings you closer and closer to being summer time!

As far as seasons go, Fall is definitely my fave, but Summer is a close second. Spring can suck it because it’s too drizzly and damp and that is NEVER good for my hair.

Over the years I have found some trends that always seem to recur during the hot summer months. Natural beachy curls are popular for hair trends, the au-natural face comes back and it makes sense. It’s too dang hot out to really vamp it up. While there are these reincarnated faves, that doesn’t mean there aren’t more new and noteworthy trends. [Keep Reading]

10 Hair HacksMy hair is quite possibly my favourite accessory.

Scratch that.

It is absolutely my favourite.

I’ve never been one to wear statement jewelry or bold clothes. I tend to wear the same three colors a lot – black, white and blue – and the same ring and diamond stud earrings.

That being said, I”m a freak when it comes to my hair. I really dig styling it, trying new fun ‘do’s, and playing hair stylist to my friends.

If you have a flare for hair then you will love these helpful hair tips. [Keep Reading]

How To Make Your Own Natural Shampoo

Written by

How To Make Your Own Natural ShampooNot long ago I was having a conversation with one of my sisters about shampoo. She has incredibly thick, coarse hair and if left unattended, it gets a little out of hand. And by “a little,” I mean outrageously out of hand.

This got us wondering; is her shampoo to blame? Besides the fact that she rarely styles her hair (how are we related?!) her shampoo is the one product that could possibly be affecting her fro.

A quick run through of the ingredients list had me tossing her current product in the trash. Full of parabens and hair drying added fragrances, it was time to come up with a healthier alternative.

Doing what I do best, I took to the web to find some hair’spiration. [Keep Reading]

Dry Shampoo Recipe: One Light, One Dark

Written by

A Quick and Easy Dry Shampoo RecipeWhen I’m in a rush or on the go I don’t always have time to shampoo my hair. I have fine hair so you can imagine how big of a deal this could be.

Greasy locks are not a good look and no matter how cute I style my hair, they’re impossible to hide.

I was telling a girlfriend of mine about this debacle and she asked me why I wasn’t using dry shampoo. The idea of a dry shampoo had literally never crossed my mind. In fact, at the time I’d never even heard of it before.

The basic premise of dry shampoos are that they wick away all the oil that causes your hair to look greasy. The oil absorbing ingredients leave your hair looking clean, without having to add any water. [Keep Reading]

5 Easy Hair TricksIt’s no secret that I love my hair.

Correction: Loved my hair. I cut it short and now I hate it, but as soon as it hits my collarbone again, all will be forgiven.

Carrying on…

Regardless of length, I’m still a nut when it comes to my hair. I will do anything to maintain a moisturized scalp, I hair mask the sh*t out of it and eat hair-healthy foods in a very vain attempt to have it grow faster.

I also like to style it, but have little to no patience when it comes to a hairstyle requiring a lengthy process. [Keep Reading]

The Best Products for Curly Hair

*This is a guest post by Todra*

When I decided nearly twenty years ago, to wear my curls free and wild, without the torment of chemical straighteners or daily blowouts, I was a bit of a maverick. I remember friends with curly hair, from the silky kind to the kinky kind, asking me, “What will you do with it?”

Curls have been deemed the “problem” hair a lot. I see hair products with labels that tout, “tame unruly curls.” I don’t consider my hair unruly. And I don’t need a $40 shampoo or a $150 chemical process to change it.

I’ve learned how to nourish my hair and keep it healthy with the simplest of products, most are homemade. [Keep Reading]
