Why Coconut Oil Is Good For Your Hair & Gives You Life!

Is your hair shedding again? Are you suffering from those common white flakes that seem to haunt even the best of us? Well, your granny would have an answer to your problems and we will most heartily agree. Coconut oil, the all-time favorite of grandmothers for what seems like forever & the solution to life.

Whatever problem you might have, coconut oil provides a solution. Got dry skin? Use coconut oil. Want to eat better? cook with coconut oil. Had a bad year? slather some coconut oil on the new year.

It’s no secret that coconut oil is life but what’s in this oil that has made it so useful for hair? To answer this same question, we did a little bit of digging and unearthed an entire list of hair benefits that research has proved Coconut oil to have.

Insane Hair Growth

Do you have a wish for long flowing hair that reach down to the floor? Yes, we do too, but sadly our hair does not have the strength to lengthen to that extent. However, coconut oil can be your solution. It can lengthen your hair and will surely help it to grow to lengths that you have always dreamed of.

The oil has the unique ability to go into the follicles of the hair to stimulate growth. Not only this, but because of its ability to strengthen the hair roots and make the scalp environment better, the oil also has a special function to reduce hair loss.

You can achieve this by:

  1. Using the oil as a deep conditioner
  2. Applying the oil to frizzy hair to help control frizz. Also rubbing some oil on your hands prior to taking down a twist or braid out, to help prevent frizz and dryness.
  3. Using the oil as a sealant after your wash, condition and or leave in conditioner routine to help lock in that moisture.
  4. Using the oil to protect hair from heat. Place a generous amount of oil into your hair prior to blow drying. This can be used in addition to a cream or dry spray heat protectant.

Repair Split Ends

In addition, your split end problem can also be conquered. Coconut oil has the unique ability to strengthen your hair and prevent them from breaking which ultimately prevents this disaster.

Its moisturizing action on the hair strands helps to replenish their water content, making them smooth, healthy, and light which makes the hair buoyant and voluminous. The oil also helps to make hair soft and adds shine which gives you the bounce you desire.

Here are some examples:

  1. Before flat ironing your hair rub a dime size amount of oil specifically to the ends of your hair. This helps with heat damage.

Disclaimer: coconut oil will not cure split ends, the only for sure way to eliminate split ends is to cut them off completely. That is why trimming is important

WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER CLIP YOUR OWN ENDS

Treat Your Scalp

Let alone the hair, coconut oil goes deep and acts on the very scalp and the cells that produce hair to ensure their working flawlessly. The oil moisturizes the scalp skin, preventing it from drying and handles that dandruff issue so that you can enjoy those winter seasons, free of worry.

Its antiseptic action also helps fight against invading organisms to prevent itching problems and infections, helping your scalp stay healthy, as well as saving you the embarrassment of being spotted, constantly scratching (or patting) your head!

How can you do this?

  • Before shampooing take a generous amount of oil and rub it onto your scalp, then let that set for a few minutes. This will help bring your dry flake to surface and after you have washed your hair prevent any flakes from being left behind.

As I said, the benefits of the oil are enormous. Its uses are so varied yet beneficial that having it in the house is a must! What’s more, using it also very easy. All you have to do is either apply it before a bath, massaging it on to your head to leave for about an hour, or you could apply it after a shower and then dry shampoo your hair afterwards. Some of us like to slather it on our scalp before bed but it’s completely up to you!

For maximum results, however, many people suggest applying the oil at night and then leaving it to rinse out in the morning. Whatever the method, coconut oil has certainly earned its position in your daily routine. Don’t you want to grow your hair to the ground? Well why the wait? Get some of this amazing oil onto your head pronto!

Death to DIY: You Should NEVER Clip Your Own Ends

Death to DIY! Don’t get me wrong, I love a good Pinterest recipe showing me how to make my own stuffed avocados and creating fun art for my home decor. I’m always stalking Buzzfeed video to find out new crafts to make but one thing I’ve never done myself nor intend to do, is clip my own ends. You may see me styling my hair but hand me a pair of scissors and i’m like…

xk.gif

I’ve been styling hair for over 25 years and I’m licensed in cosmetology along with certifications for hair loss, still you will never see me grab a pair of scissors and place them to my hair to clip my ends. It’s something I have always preferred another stylist to do.

So you had to imagine the look on my face when I was on Youtube University and I saw hair bloggers, who had never studied cosmetology, teaching their viewers how to clip their own ends.

528693.gif

First off, cutting hair is a skill! If it wasn’t, there wouldn’t be thousands of students spending thousands of dollars to learn how. You need to leave the tools in the experts hands. When you attempt to cut your own hair with little to no knowledge, you risk doing more damage to your hair and I guarantee that you will pay the price.

Why Cowashing Your Hair is a HORRIBLE Idea! 

Think about all of the DIY videos you watch on Home Depot on how to build objects for your home. Would you build your own home based off of one video? Of course not. You would hire contractors to do the job. Invest the money now to save in the long haul. 

Second, How can you expect to get the right angle if you’re cutting your own hair? How can you be sure that you are cutting at the proper angle if your head is naturally leaning to the side so that you get a good view? If you’re going for a perpendicular triangle look then by all means clip away but if you want a straight line, go to the expert.

Lastly, Your hair may not even be in the right state to properly clip off the dead ends. I clip all of my clients hair after a proper wash, blow dry, and press (if not relaxed). I’ve seen plenty of DIY enthusiasts try to take short cuts and ruin their hair. You can not clip it while in a fro and you can not clip it while wet. If you really want to be lazy, just go to a stylist.

If you’re avoiding the salon to save money, I suggest going every other month. You’re supposed to get your ends clipped  every 6 to 8 weeks, that’s plenty of time to scramble a few coins for a press and curl with a trim ($40). Some salons have deals where you can get that style cheaper on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, so call around and ask. If you think it’s a waste of time because you’re getting a protective style, it’s not! You want to treat your hair before adding extensions anyway to protect it and your stylist will do that for you.

10 Easy Hairstyles for Short Hair

Let’s face it, Monday mornings are a struggle! Even if you have a job that you love, you’re still coming off of a weekend high. The privilege of sleeping without an alarm clock and brunch dates are completely gone by Monday morning. For many of us every morning is a struggle when it comes to doing our hair, especially if it’s short. You can’t just throw it up in a bun or do a simple updo, that will fail fast. Leaving it out, can be bothersome in this type of warm weather so what is a girl to do?

Thank the hair gods for Youtube Vloggers like “Fabulous Hannah” who take their time to help us out with creative styles for our hair. The vlogger was kind enough to put together 10 easy styles for short hair that come to the nape of the neck or shoulder. I found her tutorial very helpful and she also had looks for all types of occasions. If you’re looking for something to do with your hair this morning then check out the video below for some creative looks.

 

3 Differences Between a Hair Stylist & a Trichologist

You wake up one morning crawling out of bed tired, but ready to start your day. You check your social pages and browse through your texts hoping for a good morning text. Boom! that cutie you went on a date with sent you one early in the morning and you gained a few followers over night. Today is going to be a good day! After showering and throwing on your best dress, you are ready to slay your day. All you have to do is style your hair and…wayment, is that chunk of hair mine? You reach up to touch your hair and easily pull another clump of strands out. What is going on?! Panicking you reach for your phone and dial…well who would you dial?

why-you-calling-me

While this scenario may be just an awful nightmare for you there are plenty of women who wake up to this every day. Some choose to ignore it and others shed a few tears. When it comes to hair loss, people aren’t sure who to go to. Believe it or not, there are a group of people who would know how to handle this situation and it isn’t your hair stylist, it’s a Trichologist. A Trichologist is also known as a hair loss specialist. While a Trichologist could be a hair stylist as well, there are differences between the two like:

  1. Education – Just like a doctor can specialize in cardiology or oncology, a hair stylist can choose to specialize in hair loss. A hair stylist only learns cosmetology and does their hours, a Trichologist has to participate in extensive training and earn certifications.
  2. Knowledge – I could not tell you what I know today 15 years ago before I started my hair loss journey. As a stylist, I knew how to style hair but trichology has allowed me to go more in depth with the study.
  3. Equipment – In order to target the source of the hair loss on each client there are a lot of tools required. I currently have a hair scope to view my clients scalp during a consultation to determine the cause of hair loss. I also have laser hair therapy equipment to treat that hair loss.

Trichology (from the Greek word “Trikhos” meaning hair) is the branch of science that deals with diseases, disorders, and functions of the hair and scalp

While your first step may be to call your stylist, you really want to be referred to a Trichologist. Many of my clients have been referred to me from their hair stylist, some found me on Google. When you do reach out to a Trichologist, make sure you schedule a consultation and ask for their certifications. You want to make sure they are credible and have knowledge on the topic. I should also warn you that a consultation typically takes up to two hours and will require a lot of background information so be prepared to sit for a few.

Death to DIY: Cowashing Hair is a HORRIBLE Idea!

I’m sorry to break it to you, I didn’t want to be the bearer of bad news. I know you’re probably sitting in your chair ready to go off in our comment section, but before you do hear me out. I dedicated my time to this blog to provide credible tips from licensed stylist & hair care specialists from all over to prevent you from making the same mistakes many of my hair loss clients made. I have a license in cosmetology and a slew of certifications in hair loss. Now that I have shown you my receipts, I can continue on and possibly save you damage.

Cowashing is the practice of washing hair using nothing but conditioner. When the concept first appeared on the hair scene, I could not help but to cringe at how many naturalistas were ditching shampoos for conditioners. As a professional let me tell you this.

Conditioners do NOT cleanse the scalp!

The goal of washing your hair, is to clean your scalp remove any build up from your hair. Cowashing does not do this. Many seem to favor it because it gives the hair a slippery feel causing them believe that their hair is not only clean, but moisturized. Not true, your hair is supposed to feel “dry” because that means it’s clean. If it’s not clean you get a little slide. You need to cleanse your hair with shampoo to remove the dirt and debris. Technically you’re supposed to shampoo your hair every two or three days to keep your scalp at it’s optimum condition but a week or two will suffice. Any longer and your hair will start to get oils which are a big problem with DHT and hair loss. The oils mix with DHT on your scalp and that causes a reaction to your hair follicle leading to hair loss.With conditioner, your strand just keeps getting coated with more oil and conditioner causing build up which will lead to breakage.

It’s a regimen that concerns me and I see too many women promoting it to ignore. It could be with this whole DIY thing that is causing them to do it. In my field we don’t encourage this, not just because it’s  our way of making money but because it’s our expertise. We’ve been doing natural hair since the beginning of time. When I was a kid we got shampoo, press, and curls by someone else managing our hair. Once in a while we would get it done at home, but we always went to a salon. I have a few clients who come only once a month, some even every two months. No one is saying you should be in the salon every week, but it’s time to start trusting the experts if you want to see improvement.
