Voluminous Vixens! Add volume to your everyday hairstyle.

September 21, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

A lot of 2010 hair style trends involve lots and lots of volume.  The runways are full of models who have abandoned their sleek and silky chignons in exchange for loose, voluminous and a more sultry look.  One of the most popular looks in the messy updo.  Rather than the hair being combed smooth against the head and perfectly in place, women are using the updo for a more casual look.  They pin it up or tie it back for an effortless look for any occasion.  Gone are the days when every hair was in position; now it’s in style to look a little ruffled.

To add volume to any other do, there are many techniques to help you out.  Try blow drying your hair upside down after towel drying and applying a thermal protection product.  When it’s dry, give it a quick shot of hair spray before you flip your head back over and DON’T comb it out right away.  After you flip your hair back, wait for it to fall naturally and then use a wide tooth comb or pick to help smooth out the top layer.

If the hair dryer trick isn’t working for you, try to use curlers to help you out.  Dry your hair and apply a thermal protection product.  Use 1 inch hot rollers around your head, especially at the crown and leave them in for the required time.  When you pull out the rollers, wait for the hair to cool completely before trying to comb or style your locks.  You could even consider giving it a gentle mist of flexible hold hair spray to provide a little extra oomph!  After your curls are cooled, comb through them with your fingers to turn up the volume.  You don’t have to leave the curls either!  You can pull your hair back into a messy updo or smooth out the curls for a wavy, tousled look.

There are so many options and varieties of voluminous hair this season.  No more dull, flat hair for you!  Try each of these techniques and play around a bit to get the hottest new hair trends for 2010.

Hair Dryers: The Most Important Tool

December 31, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

There is always one thing in the bathroom that everyone takes for granted. That one hair tool that never gets any thought. The hair dryer. It is very unfortunate that this essential tool doesn’t get the respect that it deserves, after all it is probably the most frequently used hair tool in the bathroom. It really should get some more attention.

So are you one of those people guilty of not giving your due respect to your hair dryer? Chances are good that you are. Take a good look at your hair dryer, and if you’ve had the same one for over five years, or it seems like it takes you forever to dry your hair, you should probably consider upgrading.

Many people will say, “It’s just a hair dryer, any one will do. I’ll save my money for a hair straightener or curling iron.” But this is a bad attitude, and you aren’t doing yourself or your hair any favors by ignoring your hair dryer.

Investing in a quality hair dryer is not only an investment in yourself, but it’s an excellent investment in your hair. Think about this, if you are applying direct heat to your hair everyday, that heat is going to start doing damage to your hair, drying it out, making it frizzy and dull looking as all of the natural moisture and oils are stripped from your hair. And who wants that to happen to their hair? No one. That’s why you need to invest in an ionic hair dryer that will dry your hair effectively, without all of the damage. It is not a given that you have to damage your hair when you dry it. Not at all.

An ionic hair dryer takes advantage of negative ions that are blasted onto each hair, infusing them. The negative ions act on each hair to close the cuticle, effectively sealing in moisture and natural oils. Because the hair cuticle is being closed, each hair will lay flat on the head instead of standing up which gives that frizzy, out of control look.

Another amazing feature of an ionic hair dryer is that using one actually cuts the drying time in half. Some ionic hair dryers actually dry hair up to 60% faster than a regular hair dryer. That not only means that your hair isn’t being exposed to damaging heat as long, but also that you spend less time drying your hair, and more time styling it. Getting you out of the bathroom quicker and on to your day.

When you are looking for a hair dryer, be sure to choose one that uses ionic technology and incorporates ceramic elements into the construction. It is time that you start paying attention to the most undervalued hair tool of all time. A quality hair dryer is an essential tool in any hair care arsenal and you will be pleasantly surprised to see the amazing results it will have on your hair.

What the Pros Use

December 5, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

When you walk into the hair salon, all of the hair stylists have their stations set up with the various tools of the trade, and cords running everywhere. But what hair tools do they have on those stations. No one usually gives it much thought, you simply sit in the chair, let your stylist get down to business and leave with a beautiful head of hair. But there are many things at work to get your hair looking that beautiful; not least of all are the tools that your stylist uses to create those stunning hair styles.

Taking a closer look at what is on those hair stations you will find a wide range of products, but there is one thing that every single hair stylist’s station has in common. They all use high quality hair tools. And you should expect nothing less from a hair stylist. If you walk into a salon and see a low quality metal plate hair straightener, run out of there fast!

So what does a hair stylist look for in a quality hair tool? That’s an excellent question, because obviously you want what the professionals use so you too can have stunning hair at home. Let’s start with the hair dryer. Hair stylists are usually in a hurry, they have a lot of clients to see and they need each one looking their best – quickly.

An ionic hair dryer is usually the dryer of choice because of the use of negative ions. Negative ions penetrate the hair shaft and dry the hair from the inside out, instead of the outside – in, like other hair dryers. The result is that hair dries quicker which means that stylists can move on to the next phase of styling faster and as an added bonus, your hair is exposed to the heat for a much shorter period, which means you won’t experience damage.

When it comes to hair straighteners, this is probably one of the most popular tools for most stylists right now so they need a high quality tool that will stand up to repetitive use and provide the best shine and finish to each clients hair.

The number one thing that stylists look for in a hair straightener is ceramic plates. Because many stylists leave their irons on for long periods, the ceramic plates will hold the heat, keeping the temperature consistent for the entire period. You don’t have to worry about the plates cooling off, or getting hot spots.

Another popular feature in hair straighteners right now is the use of silver or Nanosilver technology in the plates. This fairly new technology utilizes the power of natural antibacterial elements which actually fight the bacteria and germs that can collect on your hair straightener and your hair. This is perfect for a salon environment where tools are being used on multiple people.

Tourmaline is also a very popular feature for hair straighteners because the tourmaline infuses each hair, closing the cuticle and making the hair look shiny, healthy and beautiful. Which is ultimately what the hair stylist wants for each client.

So now that you know what the pros are using, what’s stopping you from enjoying the same benefits for your hair at home?

Great Styles Start with Healthy Hair

All too often, there is too much focus placed on styling your hair and having it look good when you head out for the day. And of course that is important, you want to look good when you face the day, but there needs to be more attention placed on how to take care of your hair in between styling.

 If you don’t have healthy looking hair, it’s not going to look good when it’s styled either. No matter how much effort you put into your hair while you’re styling it, it is not going to look good if it’s dry, damaged and frizzy. So put the extra effort into making your hair healthy and keeping it healthy.

 When you have healthy hair, it looks shiny and this isn’t just your imagination. Your hair looks shiny because for healthy hair, the cuticle on the hair shaft is closed which means it lays flat against the head and reflects the light. For damaged and dry hair, the cuticle is open which means the hair is standing up away from the head and is not able to reflect the natural light. Healthy hair also holds on to it’s own natural moisture and oils allowing the hair to look shiny and smooth.

 In order to keep your hair healthy and smooth, you must wash it regularly with a quality shampoo. Do not use anything too harsh or it will strip the natural oils from your hair as well as the build up of product. Ask your stylist for a good recommendation of a shampoo for you. Every hair type has different needs, and you need to be sure that you are using a shampoo that is strong enough to get your hair clean, but not too strong to damage it.

 How often you wash your hair will also depend on you, your hair and your styling habits, If you naturally have oilier hair, or use a great deal of products every day, you may want to wash it every day. However people who have drier hair will strip their natural moisture if they wash their hair too frequently.

 Never brush your hair when it’s wet, it will pull, tear and break your hairs. Comb through gently with a wide toothed comb and then when your hair is damp or dry you can brush it out. Be sure that you use quality hair tools on your hair that will not burn or over dry your hair. Choose hair straighteners that have titanium or ceramic plates, and look for curling irons that have ceramic barrels. These two materials will not burn your hair or pull or tug like cheaper materials. Look for hair dryers and other tools that utilize the power of tourmaline for added efficiency and care of your hair.

 When you take care of your hair between styling and use the right tools when it’s time to create a beautiful style you will have healthier more beautiful hair as a result. And isn’t that what we’re all looking for?

Find a Hair Dryer with Ceramic and Ionic Technology

November 14, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Unless you have had the same hair dryer for the last twenty years, you must know that some hair dryers seem to dry your hair more effectively than others. Have you ever been staying at a hotel or at a friend’s house and used another hair dryer? Of course you have. Everyone has a story about when they tried out another hair dryer that was so much better than the one they had at home. But some people seem to think that hair dryers are all the same. These are the people who believe that a hair dryer is simply a fan that pushes hot air at you.

 There is so much more to a quality hair dryer than simply a heater and a fan. And yes, you should pay attention to what type of hair dryer you are using because some hair dryers will actually damage your hair. You may have heard a lot about ceramic technology or ionic technology when it comes to a hair dryer. So what is that exactly?

 Ceramic technology does not mean that the hair dryer is manufactured out of ceramics. It does mean that ceramic has been used in the process of creating the tool, utilizing pure ceramic coils instead of copper coils. Manufacturers use ceramic technology because the heat that ceramic creates is always even which means that there are no hot spots and your hair dryer will heat up quickly and evenly giving you an effective dry.

 Ceramic technology is also a moist heat which means that there will not be any unnecessary drying to your hair. Using a moist heat, your hair will still dry quickly but will not be subjected to the harsh, intense dry heat that will damage it and dry it out. Moist heat helps your hair retain it’s natural moisture.

 Ionic technology is the latest in hair tools and the use of negative ions for hair styling is revolutionary. Ionic technology is when negative ions are created and emitted into the hair. Negative ions have a few different purposes. When it comes to a hair dryer, negative ions actually help dry the hair from the inside –out which means that the hair will dry faster instead of drying the outside of the hair first and then repeatedly blasting it with heat to get to the inside of the hair, which will cause damage. When the hair is dry from the inside – out it not only dries quicker but there is less heat exposure to the hair which means less damage overall.

 The other advantage to ionic technology is that negative ions actually close the hair shaft, allowing the hair to lay flat on the head locking in the natural moisture and oils in the hair which means that the hair will be shiny and healthy. Negative ions actually make the hair look and feel healthier than ever before. Did you ever think using a hair dryer would help your hair look healthier? It will.

 Instead of wishing over someone else’s effective hair dryer, take action and arm yourself with a hair dryer that utilizes ceramic and ionic technology and you will have the dryer that others envy.

Say Goodbye to Bad Hair Days

Do you have dry frizzy hair that has been over styled by chemicals, colors, hair dryers, curling irons and blow dryers? It can be very frustrating to have dry, damaged hair and not be able to style it because you don’t want to damage it further. Flipping through magazines, looking at the models with beautiful, soft, healthy hair, it’s easy to feel envious of their beautiful locks. But you would think that professional models who get their hair styled so frequently would suffer from damaged hair as well. So why does their hair look so amazing when yours looks fried?

 

Even if you have over styled and damaged hair, you can achieve the beautiful locks like those models in the magazines. The thing that they are doing differently than you is using quality hair styling tools and products. Take a good look at your equipment. Are you using top quality styling products and tools? No? Well it’s time you did. By investing a little bit in some quality items you will be able to style your hair every day without fear of damage.

 

Look for tools that use ceramic as a material because the smooth ceramic on a curling iron and a hair straightener provide an even heat which means you don’t need to be concerned about hot spots and burning your hair. The ceramic also allows your hair to slide smoothly over the tool which means it won’t snag or pull causing your hair to rip.

 

Another thing to look for is a tool with tourmaline in it. Tourmaline is a naturally occurring element that emits negative ions. Negative ions enter your hair shaft, actually drying it from the inside –out which means that your hair will dry faster and does not need as much exposure to the heat that can cause damage. Another benefit of tourmaline is that the negative ions will close the hair shaft locking in the hairs natural moisture. Allowing your hair to retain its natural oils help it look and feel healthier. Your hair will be bouncy, shiny and soft.

 

Tourmaline blow dryers are very effective at drying your hair in a fraction of the time as a regular blow dryer making them a great investment. Because if you can dry your hair in a fraction of the time, you are not only protecting your hair, but you’re saving yourself time every day. And who couldn’t use some extra time every day?

 

You will also want to invest in a quality thermal protectant for styling. These sprays allow you to apply a gentle mist on your hair that gives it extra protection from the heat of the styling tools. It also gives your hair a shiny finish as well. After straightening your hair, apply a smoothing balm that will smooth out any frizzes or dry pieces that are sticking up.

 

You may find it hard to believe, but you can actually help your hair to look healthier and more beautiful than it ever has just by using the right tools for the job. Invest in some quality tools and your hair will be healthier and bouncer than ever before and you can say good bye to any more bad hair days.

Tourmaline Crystals In Hair Dryers For Healthier Hair

November 6, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Traditional hair dryers use plastic or metal heating elements to create the hot air that they blow over your hair to dry it after a wash job. This excess heat exposes your hair to enough heat it actually warms up your hair that ends up making it brittle so that it is prone to breaking and split ends. Tourmaline hair dryers on the other hand use ceramic and tourmaline crystals to create not only heat but also negative ions that will leave the hair luxuriant and smooth despite the heavy styling. This is extremely important for women who style their hair daily to avoid the damage caused by so much heat so often.

Knowing What Your Drying Element is Made From

November 5, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

The drying element within your hair dryer plays a large role in how your hair will turn out based on how much heat your hair ends up being exposed to. Cheap hair dryers that are notorious for drying out hair and leaving it frizzy and damaged use a plastic or metal heating element to produce the heat since these are very affordable. But professional hair dryers use ceramic heating elements, which produce a different type of heat, which effectively removes the moisture from your hair while not damaging it in the process. This is perfect for those who want only the best or blow-dry their hair frequently.
