Doesn’t it seem like hair stops growing after a certain point? There are women who have hair that reaches way down their backs, but for others, growing hair to that length feels impossible.

Poor Hair Habits

When your hair is damaged, your hair becomes weak and fragile.

There are several poor hair care habits that can lead to breakage of the hair such as excessive heat styling, over-manipulation from styling, chemical hair coloring, and bleaching.

These types of practices can add a lot of stress to hair that is already fragile, weaken your hair’s elasticity and can lead to breakage, thinning of the hair and severe hair damage.

 

Shorter Hair Growth Cycle also known as Genetics

We all have a unique hair growth cycle contributed solely to genetics. The hair growth cycle is constantly in rotation, and all of your hair never in the same phase of the cycle simultaneously. There is a phase of the hair growth cycle when the hair will become dormant until the cycle repeats.

 

Poor Diet & Lack of Exercise

They say you are what you eat, and if you’re filling up on a lot of junk, fried and greasy foods, your hair could really suffer.

Your hair also needs proper vitamins, minerals and nutrients in order to thrive and eating foods that are high in nutritional value such as fish, nuts, and green leafy vegetables will help your hair grow healthier and fuller.

 

Summertime and the living is easy—that is until you have to fight with the heat and humidity when you’re styling your hair. When the temperature is high, the last thing you want to do is spend time doing your hair when sweat and frizz are going to inevitably ruin your look after spending a few minutes out in a heatwave.

 

  1. A low ponytail is a staple hairstyle in any season, but we particularly love how easy but polished it looks even on the most humid days.
  2. While bobby pins are the silent heroes of many of our best hairstyles, make the hairpin the focal point of your style. Use one to pin back one side of your hair at the temple and stack a few extras below it.
  3. If a high ponytail is your go-to hairstyle, upgrade your everyday look by adding a few random one-inch plaits to the base of your pony.
  4. Instead of trying to revive a day (or two) old blowout, give the ends of your hair a refresh by curling the bottom few inches of your hair with a curling iron and brushing everything over to one side.
  5. A foolproof way for keeping sweaty, greasy bangs off of your forehead: French-braiding your fringe along with any face-framing layers that usually end up stuck to your face.

Well…whoever thought Ombre was just a fad – was clearly mistaken! Because up until this day, Ombre is still going strong!

 

1. Ombre Hair Is Fun & Stylish

Solid hair shades are great and all, but sometimes, it can get a little boring… don’t we all have our moments when we want to change things up?! Well getting Ombre or balayage hair is one of the most subtle ways to do that, while still seeing the difference.

2. Ombre Hairstyles Look Better

If the two selected shades complement each other well, the Ombre effect will give more life and dimension to your hair. Especially when creating hairstyles, the Ombre portion will make the details stand out a lot more and make the hairstyle so much prettier.

3. Ombre Hair Is Low Maintenance

Firstly, Ombre is a very easy way to grow out your roots. Or, if your hair is dark and you’ve been wanting to go lighter, a big drawback can be – yes, you guessed it – the dark roots that constantly grow out!

 

5 Ways to Style Your Bangs

CENTER PARTED TWISTS:

This look works best with second day hair and a touch of dry shampoo for added texture. Five minutes and you’re lookin’ cute!

SIDE BRAID:

If you have longer hair and want to rock a side twist, try braiding your bangs up into a bun or ponytail, instead. It will hold the longer pieces in more securely.

CROWN FRENCH BRAID:

Braids always make it look like you put in some effort, even if you’re tired and sweaty.

FAUX-HAWK PONYTAIL:

You know mohawks have always looked super-badass. And this one adds in a braid for some killer oomph.

FOLD OVER AND TWIST:

If you really want no fuss, upgrade your normal pinned-back bangs by hiding the bobby pin. This instantly makes it look like you tried.

3 Clever Ways To Use Coconut Oil For Gorgeous Hair!

1. Coconut Oil For Deep Conditioning

Because it is comprised mainly of smaller medium-chain fatty acids, the oil of the coconut penetrates hair more deeply and faster than other conditioners.  To use coconut oil as a leave-in treatment to repair split ends, moisturize your scalp, and add a healthy glow to your hair.

2. Coconut Oil As a Daily Detangler

If you have long or curly hair, dealing with tangles may be a daily battle for you.  Coconut oil can help here, too!  Also, because it’s 100% natural, organic virgin coconut oil won’t leave any residue or long-term damage to your hair!

3. Coconut Oil To Defeat Dandruff

If long-time use of chemical shampoos, conditioners, styling products, or colorants has left you with itchy, flaky, dandruff – you can use coconut oil to heal your scalp.

It happens to most… DRY HAIR! Check out these inexpensive trusted at-home tricks that will condition your brittle, dried out locks, leaving you with gorgeous, healthy hair.

Repair damage with an avocado – Mash a ripe avocado (pit removed) with one egg, then apply this home remedy to wet hair. Avocados are rich in vitamins, essential fatty acids, and minerals that will help restore luster to your hair, says Stephen Sanna, expert colorist at the Pierre Michel Salon in New York City. Leave on for at least 20 minutes, then rinse several times. Repeat once a week for damaged hair and once a month for healthy hair.

Massage in butter – Try this home remedy: treat dry, brittle hair with a small amount of butter for a glossy shine. Massage it into your dry hair, then cover your hair with a shower cap for about a half hour. Shampoo as usual, and rinse all the butter out.

Condition with olive oil – Put the moisture back into dry hair by warming up 1/2 cup olive oil (do not boil it), and then rubbing it into your hair. Cover tresses with a plastic bag, then wrap everything in a towel. Let this home remedy do its thing for 45 minutes, then shampoo and completely rinse.

Most celebrities, whether they’ve already got naturally nice locks or have fine, stringy hair, have a little help at the end of the day. While it can be pretty obvious when celebrities use extensions, many still don’t want to admit it. Here is  just a few with “their” beautiful locks…

  1. Jennifer Lopez 
  2. Chrissy Teigen
  3. Megyn Kelly

Never learned how to fishtail braid? You’re not alone. And this ethereal, intricate-looking ‘do might look intimidating. But it’s important to remember that braiding is probably the simplest hair skill to master. All you really need is a pair of hands and a hair tie — no hot tools or hair products necessary.

These fishtail braid instructions are easy to understand…

Step 1

Pull hair back into a ponytail. If this is your first time trying a fishtail, start by securing your hair with a disposable clear elastic or a hair bungee.

Step 2

Divide the ponytail into two smaller, equal-sized ponytails.

Step 3

Separate a half-inch section of hair from the outside of the left ponytail.

Step 4

Pull this piece across the top of the left ponytail over to the right ponytail.

Step 5

Next, separate a half-inch section of hair from the outside of the right ponytail.

Step 6

Pull this piece across the top of the right ponytail over to the left ponytail.

Step 7

Repeat steps 3-6 until you run out of hair.

Step 8

When you’re finished braiding, secure the ends with a second elastic.

Step 9

If you used an elastic to start at the nape of the neck, cut it out. If you used a hair bungee, simply remove. Be sure to adjust the hair so that there’s no crease.

 

Until next time…

XOXO
