    olive oil

    A head full of thick, lustrous hair is what most people want and admire. Unfortunately, many people find their hair is not as thick as they would like. As the years go by, hair loss can become a problem, accelerated by illnesses, medications and aging. Use of olive oil has been a trusted home remedy, but there is no evidence it will help hair grow thicker.

     

    Hair loss can be caused by alopecia and hair shaft disorders. Alopecia can be related to various types of skin disorders, diseases or infections, certain drugs, or even pulling your hair out. Hair shaft disorders are usually caused by overprocessing the hair, but are sometimes related to certain diseases.

     

    To understand how something could be used to stimulate hair growth, it helps to have basic knowledge of hair follicles and how the hair grows. Formation of hair follicles begins long before birth; no new hair follicles are formed after birth. Hair growth is cyclic, with periods of rest between growth spurts. About 50 to 100 hairs are shed daily. Hair growth occurs in the base of the bulb of the hair follicle. A buildup of sebum can slow the formation of hair cells. Additionally, poor diet can result in a vitamin deficiency that can lead to thinning of the hair.

     

    Olive oil has been used by both men and women to combat hair loss and to strengthen the hair. To reduce symptoms of hair loss, good nutrition is recommended; this includes use of healthy oils such as olive oil, which contains essential vitamins and nutrients. Olive oil can be used in food preparation, as a food ingredient, consumed straight up in small amounts, or applied as a topical solution.

     

    One home remedy for hair loss is simply to drink a tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil every day. Another suggestion is a nighttime regimen. Apply olive oil to the scalp and cover the head with a scarf or bandanna. Shampoo the oil out the next morning. This treatment might help to remove sebum that can build up and inhibit hair growth.

     

    Other suggestions include mixtures of olive oil with other essential oils. One treatment recommends massaging in a mixture of a few drops each of peppermint, rosemary and sage with 1 tbsp of olive oil once or twice daily. Another home remedy is made with 3 drops cedar, 2 drops clary sage, 2 drops lemon and 3 drops rosemary to 2 tablespoons of olive oil. This application should be massaged into the scalp and shampooed out after an hour.

    Argan oil comes from the fruit of the native Argan tree in Morocco. The fruit is so nutritious that goats climb the trees just to eat them. Inside of that fruit is the little nut from which Argan oil is produced. For centuries, dating back at least as far as 600 BC, the Phoenicians relied upon this oil for healing as well as for enhancing beauty.

     

    Natives of Morocco’s Argan Forest, which was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1998, have pressed the nut to extract its precious oil, for use as a dietary supplement, wound healing, and to nourish the skin and hair.

    What makes the oil so beneficial, is that it’s rich with vitamins A, C and E, as well as being loaded with antioxidants, linoleic acid and omega-6 fatty acids. When applied externally, it can help boost cell production which results in healthier skin and hair – that’s why you may have noticed that among the list of ingredients in high-end beauty products, Argan oil is often included.

     

    1. Eliminate dandruff and dry scalp

    care

    Argan oil is a great moisturizer and can be used to fight both dandruff and dry scalp as it’s extraordinarily high in vitamin E and antioxidants. The essential fatty acids in the oil are also believed to help reduce skin inflammation and prevent dryness.

    Many people suffer from flakiness and dry scalp as they tend to shampoo with drying chemical agents without restoring it with moisture which it needs to stay healthy. If it’s neglected for too long, dandruff often results. And, if you have dandruff and use a medicated dandruff shampoo, not only is your body getting a hefty dose of chemical ingredients, but it will actually dry out both your scalp and hair more, adding to the problem over time.

    Instead, use Argan oil on your scalp to reduce dryness and nourish your hair by warming 5 or 6 drops of the oil between your palms. Apply the warmed oil to your scalp and massage well, and then put on a shower cap and allow the oil to soak into the hair and scalp for at least a few hours, or ideally, overnight. Treating your scalp twice a week with the oil will help eliminate dandruff and dryness.

     

    2. Tame frizz, flyaways, and repair split ends by using it as a leave-in conditioner

    care

    Argan oil can be used as a leave-in conditioner, to help prevent frizz and flyaways, while also working to repair split ends.

    Start with just a drop of the oil, warming it in your palms before spreading it throughout your hair with your fingers. Pay close attention to the ends of the hair. Afterward, add about  1/2 drop to your fingers and massage it into your scalp.

    Most people experience immediate benefits by using Argan oil as a leave-in conditioner, it works incredibly well for promoting shine and gloss, taming frizz and leaving the hair softer and more manageable.

     

    3. Protect your hair from the heat of blow dryers and flat irons

    hair tangling

    Unlike many styling agents which can cause long term damage to hair due to the many chemicals contained within, Argan oil enriches the hair, nourishing it with nutrients and repairing damage.

    Before using any styling tools, apply 2 to 3 drops of Argan oil using your hand, palm first. Then use a brush or comb to distribute it evenly throughout your hair from roots to tips which coats it with the oil, keeping it protected from heat damage.

     

    4. Treat dry, brittle hair

    Argan oil can be used as a very effective overnight deep conditioning treatment. If your hair is dry and brittle, once a week, treat it with the oil by warming 6 to 8 drops in your hands before massaging it into your scalp. Work it through your hair, applying to the ends and then pull all of your hair up into a shower cap. The shower cap helps retain your natural body heat which allows the oil to penetrate better, as well as keeping the oil away from your pillowcase. In the morning, wash your hair as you normally would and rinse well, until all oil residue is gone. Apply this treatment once a week to maintain healthier hair.

    Hair can be damaged by environmental factors like cold, sun and wind. Styling products and tools also can take their toll on your hair and scalp. If your hair is damaged and dull, a hair mask made with bananas and avocados can help restore beauty and shine. Bananas have amino acids that help protect hair from environmental damage and citric acid that makes hair shiny. Avocados contain vitamins A and B as well as rich oils that are easily absorbed by the scalp.

     Banana Avocado

    The ingredients of a fruit smoothie hair mask are good enough to eat, and they can bring out your hair's natural shine. In a blender, mix half of one banana and half of one avocado with a few chunks of cantaloupe and a few tablespoons of plain yogurt. If you hair is badly damaged, break a vitamin E capsule into the mixture. Blend the mixture until it is smooth and rub it into your hair and scalp. Cover your head with a shower cap and let the mixture sit for up to 30 minutes. Rinse the smoothie out with cool water into a sink with a garbage disposal to avoid clogging the bathtub drain. Wash your hair with shampoo and cool water. The yogurt and avocado moisturize your scalp while the acids in the banana and cantaloupe condition the hair to bring out the shine. This mask can be applied weekly as needed.

     Banana Avocado mask

    How to make it

    Mash up half of one ripe banana and half of one ripe avocado in mixer or you can do it with a fork. In a bowl, beat a whole egg until it is completely mixed. Add 3 tablespoons milk and 3 tablespoons honey to the egg and stir together well. Add the egg mixture to the banana mixture and mix them in one of the bowls or in the blender. Spread the mask onto your hair and scalp, taking care to get it onto your hair's roots. Cover your head with a shower cap and leave it for up to 30 minutes. Rinse and wash your hair as with the fruit smoothie hair mask. The extra protein in this hair mask nourishes your scalp and hair cuticles. The mask also is moisturizing for dry hair and helps prevent flaking. You can apply this weekly as needed.

    Whether you’ve woken up late or you’re trying to prolong your new hair colour, sometimes washing your hair just isn’t an option. Since greasy, limp roots aren’t a great look, there are plenty of way to disguise and fix dirty hair. And not just with dry shampoo!

    Scroll through to read our tips and tricks to fixing oily hair quick smart. Don’t worry, we won’t tell you to braid it. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

     

    Use dry shampoo

     Use dry shampoo

    From clothing stains to removing static, is there any problem that dry shampoo can’t solve?

    If your strands are looking a little limp, spray some dry shampoo along your part. Then, lift strategic sections of hair and give the roots a little spray. Massage the dry shampoo on your scalp (like you would if washing your hair for real) to distribute the product. The effect may not be immediate so don’t be tempted to add more straight away. Give it about 10 minutes to soak up the oils; after that time, if you need more spray away. Brush the dry shampoo out if you have straight hair, or gently massage until the white powdery-ness disappears if you have curly hair.

     

    Try baby powder

     Try baby powder

    If you’re out of dry shampoo, baby powder is an excellent alternative. Sprinkle a little in strategic sections of your hair, then follow on as you would with dry shampoo. Baby powder is a little harder to brush or massage out, so if you have dark hair, try not to use too much.

     

    Hide It with a Headband

     Hide It with a Headband

    A thick, scarf-like headband covers up oily roots and tops off locks with a pop of style. Pick up a few on the cheap, like this patterned one by American Eagle, or just use some of those scarves you already have piled up at home.

     

    Braid It

     Braid It

    Nothing keeps hair in place better than our own oil, so put that grease to work and rock a side braid. Starting on one side of the forehead, braid hair across, to the other side of the face, and pin the end back behind the ear.

    If you’re currently being afflicted by frizzy, puffy, wispy hair, don’t be so quick to pass it off as one of the less-fun side effects of summer. Chances are you’re actually dealing with hair breakage. We know that regular trims are a given for keeping hair healthy, but how do you prevent snags, tangles and hair that’s anything but smooth? There are obvious offenders — heat tools, bobby pins and too-tight hair ties — but there are also secret culprits that you may not even be aware of. Keep reading to see what our creative director and celebrity hairstylist Kevin Mancuso has to say, and what we can do about it.

     hair tangling

    1. Start in the shower

    “We are constantly damaging our hair without realizing it, and that damage can sometimes begin in the shower,” warns Mancuso. “When hair is wet or damp, it is at its very weakest point. The water breaks down the natural hydrogen bonds in the hair. They reform again when the hair dries, but while wet they are in their most fragile state.” In the shower, he advises working conditioner through hair with a paddle brush or wide tooth comb to detangle your hair. Invest in an option that’s intended to be used on wet hair. “And always detangle from the ends up!” Mancuso adds.

     

    2. Beware of the towel turban

    Surprisingly, wrapping our wet hair in a towel post-shower can cause the greatest damage. So stop it and dry your hair more gingerly. “When towel drying hair, squeeze the hair with a towel rather than rubbing and matting hair into a tangled mess,” says Mancuso. “Be gentle! I actually cringe every time I watch someone rub their hair dry with a towel (which causes major tangling), and then tear through the tangles with a comb or brush! After towel blotting, gently start at the tips with a paddle brush or large comb as with combing in the shower; always start from tip to root.”

     

    For persistent tangles, Mancuso suggests working in a weekly deep-hydrating treatment or leave-in conditioner. Look for nourishing ingredients like coconut oil which will help smooth and retain moisture.

     

    3. Avoid heat drying fries your hair

    heat

    Cut down on drying time by soaking up excess water. “Towel blotting your hair well enough before drying is important so you can work fast and not have to go over and over the same section with the hair dryer.”

     Look for an dryer that features ceramic, ionic and tourmaline technology which will also cut down on time, and be mindful during the drying process. “When you hold a hot hair dryer on hair for too long, the water in the hair heats to a boil, so it cooks and blisters hair!”

    “When heat-styling, you need to move fast and use even tension (a lot of people use too much tension and too much pressure). When using a curling iron, be sure to roll the hair on an angle away from your head so you don’t dent hair with the clamp,” says Mancuso. “Use your straightening iron in smooth passes — there is no need to press hard and pull hair, it only stretches the hair while you bake it, which causes severe damage over time.

     

    4. Why you should shake things up in the hairdo department.

    “Any time you put tension or stress on the hair you are causing some level of damage,” warns Mancuso. “Women mostly put their hair up and anchor it in the same place. Repeating stress in the same place over and over will cause damage. Try to put your hair up in a different place, such as a high ponytail as opposed to low. The same goes for chignons, up-twists and braids.”

    Same goes for bobby pins. “When done in the same location on a regular basis, it can cause damage to the hair and stress to your scalp. Clamps essentially crush you hair. It is best to loosen hair after putting a clamp in to make sure it’s not too tight.” Look for rubberized pins that are more gentle and don’t leave a crease. Mancuso suggests opting for fabric-covered bands over rubber, but note: “If they are very tight they will still cause stress to the hair. If you’re going to use a scrunchie, cloth-covered scruchies are best.”

     

    5. You can save your hair in your sleep.

    “Silk pillow cases help, especially with fragile textures that have a tendency to tangle overnight on regular cotton sheets,” says Mancuso. “Polished cotton pillow cases will even make a difference.” Satin bonnets and hair wraps are other hair-saving alternatives.

    *Hair tip during hair conditioning of hair selection: Sectioning your hair will allow you to work with smaller areas of hair at once, ensuring you`ll cover all strands equally.

     

    4.Apply a thin coat of the conditioner to your first section of hair. Start at your scalp and go all the way to the ends. Remembering to cover your scalp as well as your hair will give your scalp (which can also get dry) some TLC too. Once your hair is covered, lay the section back against your head.

     

    5.Repeat in each section until all of your hair is covered in deep conditioner.

     

    6.When all sections are complete, put a plastic shower cap or plastic wrap around your hair, ensuring every strand is tucked in. Now the deep hair conditioning is starting.

     

    7.Next we apply some heat. If you have a hood dryer, set it to medium and sit under it for the treatment time (around 20 minutes). If you don’t have a hood dyer, throw a clean towel into the dryer or the microwave to heat up, and then wrap it around your head for the suggested time.

     

    hyu5ygr45w

     

    *Hair tip during hair conditioning: heat will help to open up your hair shaft and allow the deep conditioner to penetrate as far as into your hair layers as it can.

     

    8.When the treatment time of hair deep conditioning is over, remove the towel and plastic cap/wrap from your head and then use cool water to rinse your hair. The water needs to be cool (the cooler, the better) so that your hair shaft closes and leaves as much moisture from the treatment trapped in your strands as it can. If you use hot water, all you`ll do is open up your hair shaft and lose all the great moisture you`ve just added.

    Due to the shape of curly hair strands, the hair tends to be under-moisturized. The curly-haired scalp, on the other hand, can get very oily. Curly hair care comes down to managing these two competing demands.

     

    See, your scalp produces natural oil, sebum, to keep your hair soft and to protect it. Straight hair wicks the sebum down the shaft easily, so that the whole length of the shaft is moisturized. Brushing aids this process by distributing the oils thoroughly (thanks, Scarlett O’Hara, with your hundred-brush-strokes-a-day routine). Curly hair, on the other hand, is shaped irregularly and the oil has a hard time wicking throughout the length of hair because of the bumps and ridges. It’s also impossible (and often painful) to brush when dry, so brushing can’t help, either. In fact brushing curly hair often damages it. Your poor curly, dry hair is exposed to the environment without anything to buffer it from the wind or the sun, and so gets damaged easily. Further, the unused sebum ends up sitting on the scalp collecting dust… Literally. Grossed out? I promise I’ll teach you coping mechanisms in a minute.

     curly hair

    Once you understand the relationship between your scalp and hair, there are certain rules that make sense:

    Curly hair has one Great Commandment: Thou shall not brush thy hair when it is dry! This wrecks your curl pattern by breaking up the hair strands that are forming curls. These groups of hairs are called “clumps”. Breaking up your clumps will make look like that triangle-headed girl from the Dilbert comic: frizzy. Not attractive.

     

    Further, because your curls resist the brush (understatement of the year), brushing can yank your hair out at the root or break it into split ends or probably both. Remember, you are more likely to damage the hair shaft because it is not protected at all! Always (always always) detangle your hair wet, preferably with conditioner in it so it has something protective coating it.

    How often should you wash your hair? It is different for everyone. I know curlies who wash everyday and people with straight hair who have to go several days in between washings or their hair will dry out. Experiment!

     hair wash

    If you notice your hair is always dry, try waiting a day to wash it… You might just solve your problem that way! I wash my hair every 2 days. More frequently makes my hair dry, less frequently and my scalp gets itchy and oily. When it was very long I would go 3 days.

    When summer approached and I realized I had been wearing my hair in a ponytail every day for 10 solid months since our son was born, I decided it was time for a summer haircut.

    I needed a cut that would eliminate the ponytail as a styling option altogether. Because if given the option, I’ll always choose a ponytail… especially when I’m short on sleep.

    It may have been the first time I chopped all my hair off and didn’t immediately want to cry when I left the salon. I loved my new short ‘do, and couldn’t wait to get home and see what homemade hair styling products would work best on it.

    I actually revisited an old recipe I started making a few years ago when my hair was really long. I would use it to smooth my hair and add a little shine when I wanted to straighten it. And now with a short, curled style, it has been perfect for adding moisture after heat styling.

     homemade hair cream

    I have used my homemade hair cream for the following hair issues*:

    to add shine to dull hair

    tame fly-aways, especially in dry winter weather

    smooth out curls, eliminating frizz

    smooth straight styles

    to replace moisture lost from heat styling

    The ingredients I chose for this styling product all have nourishing and/or moisturizing properties that your hair will love to drink up. I selected a few of my favorite essential oils that are good for hair and scalp, but you can choose any you like.

    This DIY styling product is so natural and creamy that I’ve even used it as hand cream when I made too much!

     

    *Just keep in mind that everyone’s hair is different, so this hair styling cream may not give exactly the same results for each individual.

     

    Ingredients 

    2 Tablespoons shea butter

    ½ Tablespoon coconut oil

    ½ Tablespoon olive oil

    ¾ teaspoon jojoba oil

    ¾ teaspoon sweet almond oil

    ½ Tablespoon pure aloe vera gel

    ⅛ teaspoon Vitamin E oil

    15-20 drops of essential oils – I used 6 drops rosemary, 5 drops chamomile, 5 drops bergamot

     

    Directions

     

    Combine shea butter and coconut oil in a glass measuring cup or half-pint mason jar. Melt in microwave for a few seconds, or use a makeshift double boiler (fill small saucepan with about 1-2 inches of water and set glass container inside, heating on low just until melted).

    Add remaining ingredients and stir well to mix. Transfer to a small, shallow tin with a lid (like this).

    Refrigerate for several hours or overnight until mixture is cooled and set up. Remove from refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature before using.

    Store at room temperature (for a nice, creamy consistency) and use within a month. Refrigerate any amount you can’t use within that time.

    It's summertime! Which means it's time to start rocking flirty outfits and big, luscious curls!

    Scared to give it a go after hearing all the curly weave horror stories? Curly weaves often get a bad rap because of their reputation for knotting, matting, tangling and the uncontrollable frizz. While this type of hair texture does require a higher level of care, it is possible to keep your curls big and bold as long as you take care of it.

    Not sure where to start? We’ve got you covered on everything you need to build a healthy, curly weave regimen! Here's your guide on how to take care of curly weave:

     

    Detangling

    Before you do anything, it is imperative that your hair is properly detangled. Use a wide tooth comb or detangling brush on slightly damp hair and gently work through in sections from the tips to the root. Proper detangling will make everything from shampooing to styling significantly easier.

    Daily Moisturizing

    Moisture is key to keeping your curls intact. By keeping your curls moisturized, they're better able to keep their form and less prone to frizz, which helps prevent tangling and cuts down on detangling time.

    Spritz your hair daily with water to help with product absorption and follow-up with a leave-in conditioner designed for curly hair. Avoid products with harsh alcohols and silicones, which can make hair extremely stiff and dry.

    Shampoo/Conditioning

    Never underestimate the importance of clean hair! To keep curls refreshed, shampoo your hair at least once a week with a moisturizing, sulfate-free shampoo. Take care to wash hair in a downward motion to avoid tangling. Next, follow-up with a moisture-rich conditioner, working it in with the same downward motion. To ensure each curl gets the moisture it needs, use your fingers or preferred detangling tool to evenly distribute the conditioner throughout.
