Hey girls! Today I’ll give you two simple groups of tips on how to take care of your hair. It’ll be a very short article, but the info will be worth it.
I’ll show you some quick and easy ways to treat your hair if it’s damaged (heaven forbid), and I’ll also give you some great ways to make your very own homemade shampoo.
Let’s waste no time and start tackling the important issues here.
Treating your damaged hair
There are a lot of ways and recipes that can help you restore your hair’s beauty and breathe in some life into it. I’m about to give you ones I’ve actually tried and had more than satisfying results.
Deep conditioner avocado hair mask – one half of your average avocado mixed with one mayonnaise jar will do wonders with your hair. Just mix it all up and start working with it from the roots and all the way down to the very ends. Wrap it up with something plastic or just put your shower cap on and you’re good to go.
Mayonnaise treatment – One half of your tea cup of mayonnaise will be all you’ll need for this procedure. Just work it extremely well, cover it up, and wait for around 15 minutes.
Olive oil to the rescue – 3 tablespoon of olive oil combined with 2 tablespoon of honey is the perfect mixture for damaged hair. Thoroughly apply to your hair; keep it covered for 15 minutes and that’s all there is to it.
These tips will work on all hair types without any sort of risk, and this includes those with sensitive scalp.
Making your own shampoo
Shampoos you can buy pretty much everywhere are so filled with all sorts of chemicals they’re hardly even worth it any more. These are the recipes I’ve tried since I’ve decide to go natural, so let me share them with you, see if you like any of them.
Miraculous baking soda – 1 tablespoon of baking soda mixed with a few drops of your favorite essential oil will make a beautiful paste with enough water, and you’ll have yourself a great natural shampoo. It’ll take some time to get used to it, but it’ll be worth it.
Chemical-free natural shampoo – One fourth cup of distilled water mixed with some castile soap and a half teaspoon of jojoba oil is what we’re talking about here. You can also use some other oils as well.
We’re here today to build your new toolbox from scratch!
If you’re having second thoughts about which set of tools would be best for your everyday house repairs or whatever you’ve set your mind on doing, you’ve come to the right place. I’ll give you a couple of basic tools that’ll turn every single job into a simple breeze. No job is difficult if you have the right tools is my motto, and I’m here to share those right tools with you.
This article is intended to be pretty short and straightforward, so let’s get straight to business.
A good set of screwdrivers can go a long way in proper hands.
There is no numbering the amount of work these bad boys can do, from menial jobs such as opening battery compartments that are child-proof and prying lids off of some paint cans to some way more serious tasks every household will inevitably throw your way.
You’ll want Phillips and flat-head screwdrivers in all various sizes.
Solid hammer is bread and butter of every toolbox.
One side will be used for driving nails in, the other for pulling them out. There’s not much philosophy about it, but if you can, you should definitely go for vinyl, plastic, or rubber handle since they’ll offer much more shock absorption.
Adjustable, locking pliers are one of the most versatile tools you’ll ever have the honor of having as a part of your regular toolbox lineup. They’re also known as lever-wrench pliers, vise grips, or plier wrenches.
They can be used as a lot of things, wire cutters, wrenches, clamps, and much more.
Crescent, adjustable wrench is almost as having a box of different wrenches, all packed into one compact tool. I’m always advocating packing less weight and more versatility and usability, and this wrench is a perfect embodiment of that rule. It’ll weigh as one wrench in your toolbox, but it’ll do the job of so many more. Perfect addition to your toolset if you ask me.
Did you hear that saying about measuring twice before cutting anything? Sure you did. That only illustrates how important your average tape measure is for great many of your daily activities. You can also use it for making sure your new-bought furniture can fit its designated place, and many more tasks.
Thanks to the world’s general obsession with social media, it is right now at the height of its popularity and there are fashion, beauty and styling tips pouring in from all over the world. Everywhere you look there’s a new trend, a new look, a new vibe.
One thing that will never change though is the crowning beauty of your lovely hair – we women love to swish it, style it, pamper it and men love to run their hands through it.
I personally think that nothing beats a healthy head of smooth straight hair. It looks clean and you look like you are taking care of yourself. But knowing what you’re doing is crucial if you don’t want to spend hundreds on a hairstylist. The essential here is choosing the right products, the right hair iron or curler, the right heat protectants and creams. I consider myself somewhat of a connoisseur because I finished none other than the Paul Mitchell School of beauty. So I am the do it myself type of gal. In the process I found one website to be particularly useful in choosing the best hair straightener. It’s a website by this British darling Mila Whitley where she tests, reviews and compares hair irons.
Keeping our hair at its finest is can be a major concern, and it is an issue for meaningful consideration.
Which hair product to use?
Which conditioner for silky smoothness?
Which, mousse, spray or cream for sleekness? How do I get that shine? What on earth in are the women in the hair product ads using?
Getting and keeping your hair straight (and doing it right) is no walk in the park, it can get frustrating. Those curls are gorgeous, but maybe you want something more manageable for those early mornings when you rush to work, or maybe you just want to try something new.
We all do!
Getting your hair under control is always rewarding (who doesn’t love a good hair day?), but what can be tiring is the endless search through magazines and the internet for opinions and answers on what will really work for you.
Search no longer! Today the hair gods have smiled and we have compiled a thoroughly researched list of the best hair straighteners available in the vast hairstyling-product market today. We’ve read all the reviews (to spare you the trouble!) and present them here for your appraisal. Sit back, put those feet up, and enjoy!
As we know hair comes in all types and what may work for one type of hair may not work for another, so we have listed what we have found to be the best brand for the type of curls you may have:
Best hair straighteners for thick hair:
The Rusk RSK732 Titanium-Infused Flat Iron has got sparkling customer reviews for being the best hair straightener they have tried (and they have tried many!). It has just the right amount of heat to get, and then keep your hair straight. What more could you ask for?
If you’ve got those gorgeous curls and waves:
The CHI Air Expert Classic Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron has been voted the best iron for curls and waves by your lovely curly-haired friends out there. Apparently, it works magic! And who are we to argue?
If you have trouble with coarse hair (don’t feel bad, we all do sometimes!):
The Bio Ionic Onepass hair straightener, is armed with silicon covered plates, something new which reduces the amount of heat you need to use and leaves your hair sleek and shiny.
Wet-to-dry hair straightener:
We all have those days we need two-in-one, good, quick action, and for that the Wet-To-Dry BaByliss Pro Titanium seems to have taken home all the awards! This nifty hair iron will do the job for you all in one go.
Hair straighteners – the brands and their best representatives
We’re moving on to general advice on good brands for hair irons now. These brands have performed well in reviews over all hair types and have created a lot of happy customers!
Rush Professional STR8 Iron Infuse with CTC Technology – Customers and stylists alike have described this as one of the best hair irons for all hair types.
Sedu Pro Ionic Ceramic Tourmaline Flat Iron – Not only is this brand great with frizzy hair, getting it all under control with its super-heating properties, it is also great value for money due to its durability, adjustable temperature, versatility and life-span.
GHD Gold Professional 1″ Styler – Though I am not personally a fan of 1” stylers, this one seems to be a huge favorite on the market. It will heat up impressively fast, transform your hair almost instantly, and it pretty lightweight to use (we all know about those aching arms!).
Remington Frizz Therapy Iron – With an average rating of 9.0 across the internet, this iron has won the hearts of its owners with its 30-second heat up time, and additional features such as the swivel cord and the lock button, conveniently making sure the temperature doesn’t change so you can straighten your hair in peace. This iron is also quite easy on the wallet!
Babyliss Pro Nano Titanium-Plated Straightening Iron- The iron that seems to have walked away with the most satisfied customers and best reviews, though, is this one. A temperature that soars up to 450, lightweight, both a curler/crimper and flat iron, the Babyliss is handy with stray hairs and has a smooth, cushioned design, so you don’t have to exert too much pressure when you clamp down. This iron hasn’t been recommended for straight or fine hair, due to its high temperature, but for curly hair, it seems to be the best option all round.
In closing, I’ve compiled a list of the best budget (low-cost) hair irons. These little beauties are easy on your purse as well as “heavy” on customer satisfaction:
HSI Professional- This is dual voltage, so it can be used anywhere in the world. There are 3 models, 1 inch (with digital read), 1.25 inch, and 1 inch (without digital read). The heat on all models ranges from 140-410 degrees Fahrenheit. The wide array in temperature makes it usable both for fine, and thick coarse hair.
Conair Infiniti Pro – This iron also comes in 3 sizes: 1 inch, 1.5 inches and 2 inches. This little heater goes up to 446 degrees and should have no trouble smoothing out your locks.
Remington S9500 – Made for home and salon use, this iron comes in only a 1 inch size. The plates are pearl-infused (how lovely does that sound?) which makes for smoother, sleeker hair than just ceramic plates would produce, and no snagging on this one. The heat is also very easily adjusted and consistent, and the heat up time is the fastest out there on the market – only 15 seconds! Hard to beat, right? The rounded body also makes it easier for styling and giving body to your hair.
So there you have it, a handy list of the best brands the hair-straightening market can offer you! Whether you have fine, straight hair that just needs a bit of a helping hand, or long, thick curls, there is something in here for you.
I hope you find your perfect match. Both your hair and you!
