tresemme lotion cremePeople mistakenly think that their only options when it comes to hair styling products are the hair wax, mousse, gels, and hair spray. An oft overlooked but very useful product is the styling lotion.

Styling lotions are great for hair styling because it helps moisturize your hair, making it softer and less prone to hair damage. Since your hair is properly moisturized, using styling lotions actually give you a bouncy natural looking, yet frizz-free do. Of course, if its a stiff hairstyle you want, you should stick with hairspray and stronghold gels.

The main complaint with a lot of styling lotions though is that they make your hair feel greasy. To beat this problem, you just need to do your research first and buy only quality products. More important, just like with skin lotions, you need to find one that suits your hair and scalp condition because the reaction to each product differs for each person. For example, the Tresemme’s Flawless Curls Lotion Creme (see photo) is obviously for curly people, so don’t get one if you’re not!

“Hair is the richest ornament of a women”, this is a saying popularized by Martin Luther. From this saying itself it can be said that it is important especially for a woman to have that appropriate, healthy, and beautiful hair which is only attainable with proper care. Proper and regular treatments are needed to keep one’s hair healthy. It all starts with choosing the appropriate shampoo and conditioner for a specific hair type. There are those that best fit dry and frizzy hair, others are for long hair, while others are meant to moisturize. Regular hair-cut or hair trimming is also a must even for those who are into long hair. As hair lengthens, it will never maintain the same texture and condition as it was before, cutting the dry ends will somewhat make one’s hair grow beautifully. Hot oil, on the other hand, is approximately needed every six months. A person’s hair is exposed to different temperature and weather conditions, treating with hot oil simply aim to moisturize one’s hair and lessen its dryness caused by numerous factors.

Soap as Shampoo? 

Filed under: Scalp and Heair Health on Monday, March 25th, 2013 by Hannah | No Comments

shampoo barPeople often think that cleaning your hair with a bar of soap is a big no. They’re right.

While soap was used to wash hair back in the old days, the invention of shampoos has made the use of soap for hair cleaning a thing of the past. You can, of course, experiment with this and use different soap to shampoo your hair, but the fact is that soap do not contain conditioners so that you can expect your hair to end up quite stiff. Soap also leave more residue on the hair so that you will be more prone to dandruff. It’s just not the best product for hair and scalp care.

On the other hand, you will find shampoo bars (shown above) that are perfectly fine for hair care. These shampoo bars contain conditioners work just as well as shampoos, except that they are in solid form. Of course, you can use this as soap but then again it’s not optimized for skin care either. So stick to soap for your skin and shampoo for your hair or maybe you can even experiment and do away with both!

loreal hot oil botanical treatmentDry hair, dry skin, dry lips or anything else dry and flaky is not something we consider beautiful. Going the other extreme is not something we like either, with oily hair and skin an equal turn off. When it comes to your beauty the only adjectives you want to be used is soft, supple, flowing, fresh and clean. What this means is that with hair and skin care, proper moisturization is the key to getting the right results.

For your hair it means that while all natural shampoos can get your hair nice and clean, you still need to lock in moisture by using conditioners or getting moisturizing treatments like hot oil treatments. You can have this done in a salon or just buy over-the-counter products for DIY treatments. This also means washing your hair frequently enough to keep it clean and keep the oil at bay. However, too much washing can also cause product buildup so make sure you rinse well.
