Are tired of horrendously tangled strands? Are you still counting the number of combs you have broken when trying to brush your hair? Well, I am sharing 10 simple ways you can easily keep your hair detangled. But before we dive in, lets first understand what causes tangling.

Causes of Hair Tangling

  1. Going to bed with your hair down

Sleeping without trying your hair up results in tangles. Never go to bed with wet hair, as it is in its most fragile state in this condition. This means it could easily break if not get frizzy. The nightmare that follows the morning after going to bed with wet hair is an experience one would not wish to experience.

  1. Not Brushing

Leaving your hair unbrushed for long poses a serious threat to your hair. Eventually, kinks are created. In addition, the hair product build up that comes with not combing your hair could disrupt the natural state of your hair.

  1. Untrimmed ends

Dry, untrimmed ends lead to split ends that are frizzy. Split ends beak easily and their effects cannot be reversed. The longer you harbor split ends, the more your hair frizzes and tangles.

  1. Damaged Cuticles

Regular heat styling breaks the hair shafts and damages the hair cuticles in the long run. As a result, your hair becomes dry, and tangles easily. Damaged hair means an exposed and unprotected shaft. As a result, the rate at which your cuticles damage is exponentially increased.

Finishing off with a moisture locking conditioner increases brush slips through your strands without any obstacles such as tangles and knots. Conditioning makes your hair softer, and smoothens it effectively. Allow the conditioner to sit in your hair for some time before rinsing it off.

  1. Wide-Toothed Comb

Tangled hair and rat-tailed combs never go hand in hand. They tend to tear your hair shafts and accelerate damage. A wide-toothed comb allows you to detangle your hair without pulling it. Always work your way up your strands starting from its ends.

  1. Applying Detangling Products

Products such as serums, conditioners, and detangling sprays ease the process of undoing tangles. They effectively eliminate interweaves and soften the strands. If you come across a stubborn knot, simply apply a generous amount of detangler around it. Gently massage the product into your hair before gently brushing it down. You can also use some help with your fingers to ease the process.

Trendy Movements: Wild and Crazy Colored Hair

Trendy Movements: Wild and Crazy Colored Hair

Trendy Movements: Wild and Crazy Colored Hair

We all know that trends come and go just like wild and crazy colored hair. While some trends stick around for a little longer than we wouldlike, we have other trends that come along and have everybody and their mamas involved. One of the
biggest trends anyone with eyes can see, is the colored hair movement. Rainbow hair, dipped colored
hair and galaxy hair is in full effect right now. You have just about every other mega celebrity
experimenting with unnatural hair colors. Ranging from our favorite celebs such as Kylie Jenner,
Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Keash, and Katy Perry. I could go on and on. And this doesn’t include the dozens of
reality TV stars and popular Instagram models.

Today I pose the question, why has this beauty trend become so popular?

There are many answers to this questions, but I’ve managed to come up with a few of my own.
Wild and crazy colored hair has become a social norm. We can give this credit to the many celebrity that
change their hair color on a daily to weekly bases. We all know that most people like to mimic their
favorite artist or entertainer. Many of us have begun doing this by imitating their style. This is often
done by recreating their hair or wardrobe in some fashion or another.

When I was a kid, for me that was
Aaliyah. I would style my hair like hers and even try to pull off some of her outfits. There is no wonder
you can go to a grocery store or restaurant on any given day and see a young woman with blue, green or
pink hair. We have adapted to making these vivid hair colors apart of our everyday lives.

Trendy Movements

As a youth, there were not many everyday people with unnatural hair colors. If you did see someone
rocking a wild color more than likely they were a hair stylist or lead a gothic / heavy medal type of
lifestyle. It’s crazy how times have changed, right? Listen to this fun fact. Midge Wilson, PhD, Professor
of Psychology at DePaul University described how in the past blonde hair was seen as dull and
unattractive. That is until the hair care product company, Clairol came out with the "Blondes Have More
Fun" ad campaign. Which totally transformed the ever so popular opinion of the color. This made having
blonde hair more acceptable and more exciting.

Trendy Movements: Wild and Crazy Colored Hair

Society as a whole makes the major decisions on how we feel about a certain hair color. If a society is
now accepting of colors such as pink, purple, blue or gray hair, it gives the everyday person the courage
to step outside the box and do something that would normally be out of their confront zone.
Social media has also played a major role in the crazed hair color trend. Platforms such as Instagram,
Snapchat, Facebook and Pinterest are places where you can view pictures and videos of beautiful hair
colors to get your inspiration. When you see people that look like you, over and over again rocking a hair
color that you have always wanted to try, your inner self says “self, we can rock that hair color too. And
it’s gonna look better on us”.

I know I can’t be the only one who has conversations with myself, right?! lol

Not only that, we always have gone crazy over this trend because many of us want to do something that
will allow us to stand out as an individual. Which can be hard during the internet age.
There are so many reasons the wild and crazy hair color trend is so popular. Tell me some of the reasons
you think colored hair is so trendy right now. I would love to hear from you.

Everywhere I look there is a woman rocking a beautiful trendy hair colors (THAT I WANT!!!). You can simply scroll
down your time line on Instagram or Facebook and see tons of women with just about every color you
can think of from hot pink, purple, blue, red, or even neon green. O how I envy them! I think to myself
how I wish I could change my look and rock a fiery red or a really cute rose gold pink. I’m loving this
“express yourself through your hair color trend” but I can’t partake in it because my corporate job has
strict rules and regulations against “unnatural hair colors” in the workplace.

And plus it’s seen as
unprofessional. (Mama didn’t raise no fool). But it’s such a disappointment. I’m young and sometimes I
just want to do something wild and crazy with my hair, but I don’t want to get fired in the process. I got
bills to pay. And plus I like to eat! Lol No hair color is worth my quality of living. Luckily, I have figured
out a way to cheat the system and get the best of both worlds. So if you are in the same boat as me
keep reading because I’ll be giving you a some tips on how to get away with rocking trendy hair colors
that are office appropriate in the workplace.

Bold Tips
Dyed tips are a great way to push the norms of trendy hair colors at work. For instance if your hair is already
dark in color such as a jet black you could try dying your tips a deep royal blue or a really dark red or
purple. You should use a color that will blend well with your natural hair and not cause too much of a
distraction.

Ombré Styles
Ombré hair colors are the perfect compromise for trendy hair colors for the workplace. Don’t go wild
and crazy now lol. Stick to more natural colors and hues such as honey blondes, browns, and coppers.

Trendy Hair Colors that are Office Appropriate

Highlights and Lowlights
Highlights and lowlights are perfect for adding depth and dimension to your hair. It’s great for turning an
outdated style and color and making it trendier. Now a days highlights are considered to be acceptable
in an office setting. However, if you are concerned about being a little to risqué, you should consider
babylights which is a method used to make your highlights look more natural.
Stay away from bright and unnatural hair colors. However, if you are some shade of blonde or have
really light hair you can get away with highlighting with discreet colors such as silver, lavender, light
pink, or even red if you have strawberry blonde hair. Make sure to select a color that will blend quietly
and readily with your natural hair color.

Trendy Hair Colors that are Office Appropriate

Peak-A-Boo Hair
The peak-a-boo method is probably my favorite option, because I can choose any color I want and it not
can be seen unless I expose that layer of my hair. If you are little confused, the peak-a-boo coloring
method is simply a way of hiding your desired hair color by dying the bottom layer of your hair. You can
choose any bright or off the wall the color and it will never show unless you style your hair in a way to
show it off.
When your hair is down, the vibrant and bright color(s) underneath will disappear and are no longer
visible.

If all else fails you can always use hair extensions. No one can dictate how you wear your hair once you
are off the clock. Clip in hair extensions are a great way to play around with trendy hair colors. And the best part
about them is you can instantly change your look in a matter of seconds. You can always experiment
with wigs, which is another great options. Corporate woman by day and fun girl by night.
I hope these tips has helped to give you an idea of some of the ways you can play around with color in
an office setting. Please let me know if any of these has worked for you.


Things to Avoid When Wearing Blonde Hair Extensions

Things to Avoid Wearing Blonde Hair Extensions

Things to Avoid When Wearing Blonde Hair Extensions

Take is from somebody who knows, dry hair is the worst but dry blonde hair takes the cake! I have been
wearing blonde hair and blonde hair extensions for years and I guess you can say I’ve learned a thing or
two about the do’s and don’ts when it comes to wearing blonde hair. Today I will be sharing with you a
few things to avoid when wearing blonde hair extensions. These simple tips and tricks will help you to
maintain the quality of your hair and make your hair extensions last longer.

Chlorine
When it comes to blonde hair extensions and blonde hair in general chlorine is public enemy #1.
Chemicals on top of already chemically processed hair can only cause more damage. So ladies before
you turn yourself into the Little Mermaid, keep in mind that chlorine is not your friend and can damage
your blonde extensions.
I know summer is right around the corner and we all want to hit those pool parties. So, if you must swim
in chlorine I would advise one of two things.

Things to Avoid Wearing Blonde Hair Extensions
1. Wear a swim cap while swimming. I know it’s not sexy but do you want to protect your blonde
hair extensions or not?
2. Fun Fact: if your hair is already wet before, the chlorine has a harder time attaching and
damaging your extensions. So, try wetting your hair before taking a dip in the pool.

 

Things to Avoid When Wearing Blonde Hair Extensions

 

Things to Avoid Wearing Blonde Hair Extensions

Too Much Heat
With any hair texture, type or color, too much heat on your tresses is never a good thing. Heat can be so
damaging on your hair. This is especially for blonde hair extensions. Being careless with the amount of
heat you are using on your hair can lead to permanently frying the hair. Once your extensions become
fried, they will become extremely dry and brittle and you may even experience a lot of shedding.
I suggest using a heat protectant and reduce using heat as much as possible.

Sun Damage
Sun damage. Ummm.. Yeah there is a such thing. Let me school you really quick. Extreme climates rather
hot or cold can me damaging to your hair and your skin. However, it seems to be extra harsh for blonde
hair. So before you head to the beach to soak up some sun find you one of those really cute sun hats
with the extra-large brim to cover and protect you hair color for fading and look dull and lifeless.

De-hydrating Hair Care Products
Blonde hair and blonde hair extensions especially need nourishing and moisturizing shampoos and
conditioners. So at all cost avoid products that can strip your hair of all its natural essentials. Instead use
products that are color safe and sulfate free.

Liquid Bleach
Are you a DIY type of gal? If you are new to dying your hair or hair extensions blonde then my biggest
advice to you would be to use a powered bleach to lift the color versus using a liquid bleach. I suggest
using a powder bleach because it isn’t as harsh on the hair. It also helps with getting the perfect shade
or tone of blondes you may be looking for.

I hopes this had helped in some form with what you should avoid when wearing blonde hair extensions.
While I’m sure there a dozens more these are the most important to abide by.

*Once rinse out thoroughly, if the hair is wavy or curly slightly scrunch the hair to keep the curl pattern. And then, lay the hair on the towel to air dry completely. Do not hang the wet hair to dry because that can stretch out the curl pattern.

Look 10 Years Younger With Hair Extensions

Call me vain and shallow, but I can’t imagine life without my hair extensions, they have made such a difference to the way I look and feel.Before extensions, every day was a bad hair day. But not anymore!!! I can Look 10 years younger as These days my hair even manages to look good first thing in the morning (which is a first for me).
My only regret is not having them sooner, but I was afraid they’d ruin my hair (like a lot of us, I’d heard all the bad press about them). Remarkably and much to my amazement, my own hair has benefited since I started wearing them in June 2009.
Far from making it thinner, my own hair looks thicker and healthier and the condition has definitely improved. I can only assume the extensions have put a wall of protection around it, that and fabulous hair products I’m obliged to use on it.
So if you loathe your hair, don’t despair. There’s another solution besides hiding under a hat or wearing a wig. And you don’t have to be a singer, actress or model to qualify!

 Look 10 Years Younger

One thing is for sure, extensions will knock years off you and make you feel fabulous.
A word of warning though, it’s vital you choose the hair brand and salon with great care, after all, those bad rumors didn’t start without good reason! Make sure you find someone highly skilled who applies extensions regularly.
Russian Blonde Hair Extensions, Brazilian Human Hair , Look 10 Years Younger With Hair Extensions

Choose your brand of hair extensions with care. Ideally, you should buy from a company who sell hair that has been ethically sourced and the hair is top notch quality. Brazilian hair is recognized for being the best quality, it is also the most expensive, but can make you look 10 years younger. In second place is Indian hair and in third Asian. This is simply because Indian and Asian hair extensions have to go through far more severe chemical processes in order for the texture and color to resemble and match up to most hair types and textures.

 Look Younger With Hair Extensions

I did my research thoroughly and found a company who besides using hair that’s ethically sourced they also spoke to me about the condition of my hair and what would be the best to suit my needs. They were also able to recommend a stylist in my local area.  The purpose of this was to make sure my own scalp was healthy first so the hair extensions wouldn’t harm my hair in anyway. So I knew I was in safe hands.
But the real clincher was reading in the national press how this same company were doing wonders for women in recovery from cancer and other hair loss related illnesses. It made me realize I’d be dealing with people who genuinely cared about making all women feel better about themselves. The rest as they say is history.
I’m telling you all this because my hair extensions have made the world of difference to me. I’ve hated my hair all my life and now for the first time ever I love it.
So if you feel the same way, maybe you should consider getting them too. Anyone can look 10 years younger without a doubt, our hair affects the way we feel. When it looks good, we feel good! That’s all there is too it and besides, life’s too short to go through it feeling miserable.
