Is coconut oil good for your hair?

Is coconut oil good for your hair?

Coconut oil is something that is loved for many different uses. It smells like a vacation, it hydrates cuticles and dry elbows and the best of all it will improve the health of your hair.

So, how does it work?

There have been scientists that have studied the effects of oils on hair which have included mineral, olive, sunflower and lastly coconut. The results that they received some pretty amazing results for coconut oil. It has been shown that it actually penetrates hair. So, why would that matter? Many hair products and ingredients are only able to coat the surface of the hair to add shine, conditioning, smoothness, and more. Although, coconut oil has a chemical structure that allows it to penetrate the cortex or the inner part of your hair which helps to improve flexibility and strength.

This means that your hair is less likely to break and less likely to be damaged from heat styling and combing. Another benefit of coconut oil is that it has some super staying power. Since most oils will sit on top of your strands of hair, they rinse out when you wash your hair. Coconut oil cannot be washed off. The reason why is because it is inside of your hair, so you can’t really rinse it away. If you have dry and damaged hair and have a lot of issues with hair loss as well as breakage, then you need to get you some coconut oil.

Is it hard to find?

Nope. It is found in a lot of newer hair care products. You should look for leave in products that have coconut oil as one of the three top ingredients. It is listed pretty low on the list, then you won’t get any real benefits from it.

You can always try to use pure coconut oil. The best part is that you can find it in most natural food and grocery stores. You can normally get it for around $5.00, you will be able to have coconut oil that will last you a year or more. Just use it sparingly and apply to the ends of your hair. I actually apply it to my damp hair before I blow dry or use my wet-to-straight flat iron.

Coconut oil is great and a natural way that you can improve the overall health of your hair. It doesn’t matter if you are using pure coconut oil or using hair products that contain this amazing tropical treat, your hair will love and thank you for it.  Another oil that might help is Jamaica Black Castor oil.  Check out my Jamaica Black Castor Oil review.

 

 

Keep Your Hair Feeling Healthy, Soft and Silky

Keep Your Hair Feeling Healthy, Soft and Silky

It’s the dream of every woman on the planet to have hair that’s healthy, soft and silky. We spend lots of time trying to get it that way so that we can look our best, but it often fails to hit the mark. There’s no one single technique that works perfectly for everybody, but here are some simple things that can really help.

Know Thy Enemies

First of all, it’s important to know what things damage your hair. These can be:

  • Over-styling with curlers, straighteners and excessive blow-drying
  • Chemicals and pollution in the air
  • Exposure to wind, sunshine or saltwater
  • Stress. smoking, diet and your sleeping patterns

What’s keeping your hair from being as soft and silky as it should be? Try to tackle as many of these causes as you can and you will see a dramatic improvement in the health of your hair.

Stop Styling

One way to get your hair back to its natural, healthy state is to go cold turkey on the styling products. Give your hair a chance to recover and it’ll regain some of its luster. If your hair’s been over-styled a lot, you might want to try a deep conditioning treatment. This is a treatment that uses a very powerful conditioner for a short period of time. Follow the instructions on the package.

Protect Your Hair

Because there are so many things in the environment that can wreak havoc on your hair, keep it protected when you go out. Wear a scarf when you’re in the sun and tie it up on windy days. If you go swimming a lot, stay out of the ocean or swimming pools that use chemicals like chlorine.

Condition, Condition and Condition More

Simply using the right conditioner is a great way to keep your hair’s silky smoothness.  Know your hair type and choose a conditioner that’s made especially for you. If your hair is fine, use something light. If it’s thick, choose something tougher. Experiment a little bit to see what works, and you can also ask your hair stylist for a recommendation.  You should consider a product such as Nioxin.  Check out my Nioxin review.

Natural Bristles

The brush you’re using may also rough up the texture of your hair. Use a brush with soft bristles for your after-shower brushing. Brush your hair out while it’s still wet and be extra gentle with it.

Proper Diet for Healthy Hair

What you eat has a huge effect on the way your hair looks and feels. Make sure that you’re eating a balanced diet that includes lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, and drink plenty of water. Make an effort to get all the daily recommended vitamin dosages you need. Protein from nuts and lean meat is also good for your hair. A simple daily multi-vitamin can really help you and your hair get the essential vitamins and nutrients that it needs.

For more detailed information about what foods you can eat for healthy hair, check out this article from WebMD. Top Ten Foods For Healthy Hair.

Home Remedies for Hair

Chemicals can cause lots of damage to your hair’s health even while making it look good and helping to control it. But all-natural remedies give your hair health benefits without the side effects. Black sesame, coconut oil, beetroot, mashed banana, and egg white are just a few of the natural remedies you can use. You might even have them in your kitchen cabinets right now.

Finally, listen to your hair. Pay attention to when humidity or sunshine is causing trouble. Always use the right conditioner to counterbalance the effects, and no matter what you do, always be gentle with your hair. Hair is sensitive and treating it too roughly will make it lose its natural shine.

Can you go shampoo free?

Can you go shampoo free?

Wait, Wait, Wait… Don’t get too grossed out by the idea. Let me explain…

I learned a long time ago about the harmful chemicals that are present in most shampoo products. Sodium lauryl sulfate is one of the most common chemicals in all soaps, including shampoo and conditioner. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) is basically a foaming agent that helps to eliminate oil.  What’s interesting is that this same SLS chemical is used in commercial grade degreasers like the ones that mechanics use to de-grease car engines.

Can you believe that? You can probably imagine how bad these harsh and harmful chemicals can be on your hair. These chemical detergents strip the hair of natural oils, but another concern is that they are also absorbed into the skin, which has been linked to a variety of health concerns including certain types of cancer.

So, What Can Be Done?

Many people have turned to hair care products that have more natural ingredients like Wen shampoo or other similar products that do not have sodium lauryl sulfate or other similar chemicals. These do work well for most people, but they are also very expensive (approx. $35 per bottle).  Others turn to shampoos specifically designed for thinning hair such as Nioxin shampoo and conditioner.

Others have tried to shampoo less often, like 2-3 times per week rather than every day. This may work to help replenish the natural oils in the hair, but most people do not like the look and feel of dirty hair, so I have been searching for other alternatives and here is what I have learned…

Baking Soda For Shampoo

The benefit of using baking soda as a shampoo is that it’s extremely cheap and it’s a very weak alkaline which means that it will gently cleanse the oily buildup away without completely stripping the hair of all it’s natural oils.

All you need to do is mix about a tablespoon of baking soda with a cup of water, put into some sort of bottle and gently massage the mixture into your hair. I would recommend that you focus mainly on the scalp since that is where most oil originates. You should still use it on the rest of your hair, but focus mainly on the scalp. Then rinse it out just like you would shampoo.

There May Be A Transition Period

You have to remember that your hair is used to being stripped of its natural oils due to the detergents in shampoos. To counteract this stripping, your scalp most likely produces a large amount of oil. It can take a few weeks or longer for your scalp to adjust to the lack of harsh chemicals being used and to become more balanced. Give it some time before you give up on it.

If your hair feels too dry, you might try using a little less of the baking soda mixture.

Apple Cider Vinegar For Conditioner

Apple cider vinegar is a great replacement for conditioner because it’s a mild acid, which helps to seal the cuticle and balance the PH of your hair. You want to use the same ratio that you use for the baking soda (1 tablespoon to 1 cup of water).

If you typically have oily hair, then you won’t need to use too much of this, maybe just apply to the ends of your hair and avoid the scalp area. If your hair is typically more dry, then you may want to apply more of this mixture, but try to avoid using too much on your scalp because that is where most of the oil originates.

As far as the smell of the vinegar, don’t worry, you only smell it when you first apply it, once you rinse it out, it’s gone and you can’t smell anything.

Using hair growth oils

Many people find that using hair growth oils work best for them.  There’s a few options you can choose such as Coconut oil, Jamaica Black Castor Oil or Wild Growth Hair Oil.

The shampoo free conclusion

I have used both of these techniques on my hair and they seem to be working very well so far. I need to try it for a few more weeks before I can make a definite decision, but so far I love the idea of not using harsh chemicals on my hair and I also love the low cost of these two products.

Dry Hair Care Tips – Learn What To Avoid

Dry Hair Care Tips – Learn What To Avoid

If you have dry hair then you know that it can feel dry, brittle, crunchy to the touch and frizzy. So, what is it that causes dry hair? Well, the good news is that some causes are preventable, but unfortunately some are not. Genetics play a big role in the type of hair that you have. If your Mom has dry and frizzy hair, then your dry and frizzy hair is probably genetic. Even if you do have unfortunate genetics, there are some things that you can do to help manage this problem.

Inactive Oil Glands: One of the main causes of dry hair is inactive oil glands. If you also have dry skin, then this is probably a big problem for you. You need to make sure that you don’t wash your hair every day. Try every 2 to 3 days instead. This will allow the natural oils to replenish your hair follicles. Also, when you do wash your hair, be sure to use a good quality moisturizing shampoo that will help replenish the essential oils in your scalp. Condition after every shampoo, and don’t overrinse. A little leftover conditioner helps dry hair shine and be more manageable.

Beat The Heat: If you have very dry hair then your worst enemy is HEAT! I am not talking about the weather here. If you have dry hair and you also use a hair dryer or straightener every day, then you are just destroying your hair. A flat iron is probably the worst thing that you could use on your hair every day. Try to use it as little as possible. It’s also a great idea to let your hair air dry after you wash it so you don’t have to use the dryer or straightener as long.

Color & Chemicals: This one is not rocket science. If you are really serious about replenishing your dry hair, then you really should consider not using any more color treatments or chemical relaxers. Also, chlorine from the swimming pool is a major culprit in the summer time. Always be sure to rinse your hair after swimming with fresh water. Never let chlorine stay in your hair for a long period of time. You might also consider using a swim cap if you do use the pool often.

So What Else Can Be Done?

Here are a few ideas if you are serious about treating your dry hair problem:

1) Get a hair cut!

Most dry hair will have at least some split-end damage. The best way to get rid of them is to just cut them off. A hair cut will also allow the new hair to replace the old and damaged hair.

2) Use a wide toothed comb.

Cheap, thin-toothed combs can cause some serious damage especially when hair is wet. Major breakage can happen. A good soft-bristled brush will help distribute the natural oils throughout the entire length of your hair.

3) Coconut or Olive Oil.

You can always visit your salon for a professional dry hair treatment, which might be a good idea if you are serious about a long-term solution. You can spread coconut oil on the ends of your hair and leave it in to help replenish the oils, or you can also massage warm olive oil through your hair, wrap it in plastic and leave in for about 30 minutes. You can then rinse it out with a good quality moisturizing shampoo.  Check out this page to see if coconut oil is good for your hair.  There are other types of oils you may be interested in such as Wild Growth Hair Oil or Jamaica Black Castor Oil.

With a little bit of TLC and a few of these strategies, you can manage your dry hair issues. Try some of these strategies and let me know how they work for you. Good Luck.

Treatments For Hair Loss In Women

Treatments For Hair Loss In Women

What To Expect From A Dermatologist?

The general norm for a dermatologist is to probe the patient’s medical history and habits. He/She might ask you about the kind of hair loss pattern in your parents to determine whether the loss is hereditary or not. Based on the information he/she will provide the prognosis and related treatment. A word of caution, permanent female pattern baldness is not curable. The loss is permanent. However, you can opt for surgical interventions to reduce the damage.

A dermatologist can also prescribe some medications to treat your hair loss which could include the topical application of the medication. If the hair loss is tied to the lifestyle you lead, he/she might suggest various changes in it.

Treatments For Hair Loss:

Treatments for hair loss in women are available in the form of medication, surgical or lifestyle changes such as:

  1. Medication – Not many medicines are available to directly treat hair loss in women. The doctors may address the causes of hair loss rather than treat the hair loss. The most commonly used medicine is Minoxidil which can be applied as a gel or foam topically on the scalp. It is reported to stimulate growth, though it should be used for a lifetime as discontinuance may lead to hair fall again. Doctors might treat the Androgenetic hair loss by using certain inhibitors like cimetidine, spironolactone or cyproterone acetate. They might also opt for hormonal balancing treatments using estrogen and progesterone pills. Doctors are also known to use oral contraceptive pills to varying degree and compositions to treat hair loss in women.
  2. Surgical Treatments – Scientific developments have made it possible to treat (not cure) permanent hair fall using surgical interventions such as hair transplants and scalp reduction. With a hair transplant the surgeon/dermatologist removes a healthy portion of skin containing hair follicles and transplants it surgically to the affected portion. The second option is to stretch the scalp over the affected area or folding over the portion over the bald spots. Surgical treatments are yet to be effective in women as the pattern of balding is different among them.
  3. Lifestyle Changes – Women are the first to bear the brunt of unhealthy lifestyles (though this is not the norm!). A diet poor in nutrition, disturbed sleep due to stress or illnesses, and a sedentary lifestyle are some culprits that contribute to hair loss to a certain extent. The way forward is to eat healthy, clock in sufficient and restful sleep, maintain the intake of liquids in sufficient amounts (8 -10 glasses of water daily) and burn that excessive fat or exercise to stay fit.

Myths Debunked:

In order to understand what hair loss entails it is also important to understand what does not cause hair loss. A Few myths related to hair loss are:

  • Washing hair with shampoo more often causes hair loss.
  • Brush 100 times for healthy hair
  • Do not brush too often (this is in direct conflict with the previous myth!)
  • Shave your mane for thicker growth 
  • Permanent balding is curable

For dry scalp:

–         Use dry shampoo and clean your hair scalps thoroughly on a daily basis.

Does Hair require Vitamins?

If you are worried regarding hair growth, you should know that vitamins are essential for providing sufficient nutrition to your hair. Vitamin E for instance results in blood circulation thereby leading to hair stimulation. B vitamins are regarded best for bettering hair health. Moreover, lots of vitamins and proteins should be consumed through food and supplements to help you re-grow and retain hair.  Biotin is also another vitamin that really help.

3 Fear Factors for Hair

  • Dandruff – If you are subjected to digestive disorders or having toxic elements in your blood, your hair might acquire dandruff. This can be cured with proper brushing and massaging of the scalp.
  • Lice – Hair can catch lice if kept untidy and unwashed for days. Lice can augment your itching to a good extent and hence affect your hair roots. Thus, you should consult your doctor for a better hair treatment as soon as you discover lice in hair.
  • Ringworm – Avoid using sulfur ointments or washing your hair with bichloride soap. These can lead to ringworm and hence make your hair fall.

So, it can be concluded that negligence and carelessness are the two biggest factors that can ruin your hair scalp and diminish your natural beauty. Using good hair treatment products can only keep your hair protected from falling prey to deadly hair complications.

What damages your hair the most

What damages your hair the most

Your beautiful hair is under constant attack. You probably don’t realize all the damage that your daily life is doing to it. If you can cut down on this damage, you’ll find it much easier to maintain a healthy head of hair with less effort. Here are the 6 worst things that life does to your hair and what you can do to save it.

Harsh Chemicals

Most styling products and treatments use chemicals, especially those that color and straighten hair. Bleach is by far the worst culprit. This doesn’t mean that they’re all bad, but just that you should exercise moderation in using them. Chemical damage to hair is the most severe when you do several treatments at once, so pick one at a time and stick with it. Also, don’t change your color too often. Check out this post if you want more information on how to color your hair safely.

Heat and Dry Air

There’s another common way styling products and treatments damage your hair – by frying it. Most products use heat, and this heat dries out your scalp and deprives it of the moisture it desperately needs. This is the worst when you use blow dryers and other products too often and too close to the scalp. For anything that heats, use it sparingly and make sure it’s as far as possible from your scalp. Also, make sure that you know how to use your hair dryer accessories properly and effectively.

Excessive Brushing and Combing

It’s good to brush and comb, but if you do it too much, you could be breaking and tearing your hair and this causes damage. It’s especially bad when your hair is wet. You may also be using the wrong brush. Use a wide-toothed comb and a brush with natural fibers. Be sure to follow our tips on how to keep your hair healthy, cut down on your brushing if at all possible and always make sure you’re extra gentle.

Sun Damage

The sun damages your hair just like it damages your skin. Those same UV rays do a little bit of damage every time your hair is exposed to them. If you’re a sun worshipper, the time you spend basking could be really causing problems. Whenever you go out in the sun, cover up with a hat and protect your locks from its rays.

Chlorine and Salt in Water

The water we swim in contains things that aren’t nice to hair. Chlorine and copper in pool water can leave deposits in your hair that are hard to remove and can leave you with green hair. The salt in ocean water dries out your hair and causes it to fall out. Whenever you go swimming, rinse well both before you dive in and after you towel off. If you spend lots of time swimming, you might want to try swimmers’ shampoo that’s formulated especially for deep protection.

Washing Too Much

It may come as a surprise, but actually washing your hair too much can cause damage. It depends on your hair type and the shampoo that you’re using. If you have dry hair, washing too much may make your scalp even drier and leech away the natural oils it needs to look and feel its best. Try skipping every other day or learn how to go shampoo free.  Also check out our dry hair care tips.

If you’re in the best overall health possible, this will protect your hair against the daily damage life causes. Your hair is a reflection of the state of your body. Eat well, exercise, reduce stress and make sure that you use a shampoo and conditioner with a good pH balance.

I would like to hear your thoughts about what you think will damage your hair the most. Maybe you have personal experience with a product that really messed up your hair or you have learned a lesson the hard way.

Home remedies to help your hair grow

Home remedies to help your hair grow

Here’s a secret lots of people don’t want you to know – there actually is no way to make your hair grow faster. There’s a maximum speed at which all hair grows. The reason it sometimes seems to be growing faster than other times is that it’s slowed down when you have hair health issues. What this means is that if you can keep your scalp as healthy as possible with the essential nutrients it needs, it’ll seem like your hair’s growing faster when actually it’s just growing at optimal speed.  The first thing you have to do is to avoid what damages your hair the most.

The importance of shampoo

First things first.  If you don’t have a healthy scalp you wont grow your hair at an optimum level.  The first thing you need to do is find the best shampoo for your needs.  There’s simply no point in doing anything until you have the right shampoo and conditioner to help you get some healthy looking locks!

 

7 Home Remedies

Here are 7 home remedies that you can use to help your scalp maintain a healthy balance and grow those hairs the way it’s supposed to.

Hot Oil Massage

Probably the most effective home remedy treatment is a hot oil massage. It helps by promoting good blood circulation in your scalp. This helps those little follicles do their best. There are lots of different oils you can use like coconut oil and castor oil. These are wonderful because they’re all-natural so they don’t damage hair. Apply for about an hour and then rinse off.

Olive Oil

Olive oil’s not just great for cooking; it’s also a nice remedy for your hair. For best results, apply olive oil to your hair once a week for about 20 minutes. After the time is up, wash it out with lukewarm water.

Olive Oil and Egg Whites

You can also try mixing olive oil with egg whites. Apply the mixture to your hair and let it sit for three hours before you wash it out. This is a great mixture to use with a scalp massage and if you add honey this gives it even more luster and shine.

Coconut oil

Coconut oil is being spruiked as a bit of a cure-all, miracle substance at the moment by many health practitioners but is coconut oil good for your hair?

Aloe Vera and Honey

Aloe Vera is a leaf that has all kinds of medicinal properties. It’s wonderful for scalp massages. Take three leaves of Aloe Vera, scrape off the gel and mix it with a little bit of honey. Put this mixture on your scalp for 20 minutes before rinsing it off.

Onion

You might be surprised to find out that onion is great for your hair. It helps you regenerate your hair follicles. There are a number of different ways you can apply onion to your scalp. One is to mix chopped onion with shampoo and let it sit for a couple of weeks. Boil this mixture in water for 15 minutes and apply it to your hair. I have never personally tried this one. I just can’t get past the idea of stinky onions in my hair, but I have heard of other people having success with this technique.

Potato Water

I don’t know how often you boil potatoes, but you can use the water you boiled them in again to treat your hair. This method is really simple. Just wash your hair with the potato water after your regular shampoo.

Drink Water

One of the easiest home remedies is also one of the most-forgotten – water. No, I don’t mean putting it on your scalp; I mean drinking it! Inside your body, water turns into moisture that your hair can use. Without water, your hair becomes dull and weak. Drink at least five glasses a day. More is even better.

Remember that everything natural isn’t necessarily safe. Talk to your hair stylist if you’re not sure about a certain home remedy. You don’t want to try it out and find out by accident that it can damage your hair.
