Get your hair party ready in a flash
Christmas is almost upon us and with it comes plenty of reasons to celebrate with those you love. As well as quiet evenings in and present opening sessions, the festive period brings with it numerous reasons to get dolled up and put on your party outfit.
When it comes to getting ready for a night out, most people think the key things they need are the right dress and a touch of makeup. However, all your hard work and your party look can be ruined if your hair doesn't look fabulous.
Having dull hair that is lifeless and damaged can totally ruin your look and draw attention away from a beautiful dress or well-applied makeup. It can also leave you feeling flat as you may not be able to do much with it.
This is why it is important to take some time to liven your hair up and leave it looking beautiful, soft, and shiny. Making your hair look amazing can help to boost your confidence and be the cherry on top of your night out ensemble.
Have a trim
A lot of the time it is dry and split ends that are making your hair look dull. Damaged ends can make hair difficult to deal with and can leave it looking awful.
Rather than trying to fix incredibly damaged ends, it is best to get rid of them. Have a hairdresser snip away any dead ends - be sure to tell them you just want a trim - to leave your hair looking and feeling healthy again.
If you don't have time for a haircut or don't think that your ends are too bad, you may be able to tame them and add shine with an intensive treatment.
Intensive conditioners that are full of natural oils and butters will help to prevent further damage, smooth your hair and add a great glossy shine, which is perfect if you have a Christmas engagement.
Apply any treatment after gently shampooing your hair. It is best to leave a treatment on for an extended period of time in order to get the most out of it. Apply it to all your hair generously, making sure you pay special attention to the ends.
Put a shower cap or cling film on over your treated hair. This will trap heat, allowing your hair follicles to open up and absorb more of the treatment. Rinse out thoroughly after around 20 minutes. You can also do a final rinse with cold water as this will add great shine.
Hair oils or serums can be used to add instant moisture, shine and control to your tresses. Simply apply a small amount - start with some that looks to be about the size of a penny in your palm. Thick or long hair may need more, but it is best to add more if needed than to over-oil the hair.
Rub the oil between your hands and then run your fingers through the lengths of your hair, avoiding the roots and ensuring your ends are coated. Brush through your hair carefully and allow to soak in before styling.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
