  • Brush with a wide-toothed comb and tie it up with soft ties that don’t snag
  • Brush your hair from the ends up
  • If you hear a ‘tearing’ sound, that’s your hair breaking, so try to avoid it
  • Hair is most fragile when wet
  • Avoid bleach and perms
  • Avoid heat-styling, and use the hair dryer on low/cool or not at all
  • Gently rubbing your scalp can stimulate hair growth
  • Putting too much tension with tight ponytails or braids can cause alopecia (hair loss)
  • Vitamin B, vitamin C, biotin (vitamin B7/vitamin H), niacin (vitamin B3), vitamin E and keratin have all been reported to improve hair and nails. The most important thing however is to eat a wide variety of foods.
  • Regular trims can prevent split ends and lead to healthier, longer hair long term
  • Wearing hair in loose plaits, wrapped in a scarf, or wearing a hat can protect hair from the elements
  • Leaving conditioner on the hair for longer than an hour has no proven benefit and can actually cause damage to the hair and irritate the scalp
  • Hair needs both moisture and protein. Eggs whisked together can be used as a protein treatment, and coconut oil can be used as a conditioning treatment. There are many more inexpensive DIY treatments to be found online
  • The rate of hair growth is tied to metabolism; the faster your metabolism, the faster your hair will grow. Exercise can help.

How to do Scalp Massages

You can massage your scalp, using the pads of your fingers with any oil of choice or none (if allergic or scalp doesn’t like oil). 

  • Pour some oil into a bowl and warm the oil by placing the bowl in some hot water. The oil should be warm but comfortable to the touch.  Or you can just use your favorite oil straight from the bottle.
  • Using the pads of your fingers, apply the oil little by little to different parts of your scalp, parting your hair as needed.  Then, using the pads of your fingers, work the oil into your scalp, using circular motions. Slow, deliberate movements are relaxing while steady but vigorous movement helps enhance energy and circulation.

How to growth black hair fast ?

Growth your hair fast

Don’t believe the common misconception that African American women must settle for short, fragile, unruly hair.

The secret to achieving long black hair involves adopting a simple, yet effective hair care regimen.

To obtain substantial length, you must nurture hair growth while limiting the amount of stress afflicted on the hair.

With proper black hair care, which includes proper nourishment of the body, you can have lovely, long, beautiful hair.

STEP 1 : cleanse your scalp more frequently.

Whether it is because of cultural traditions or because of mis-information, black women tend to think it is better to wash their hair once every two week or less.

Your scalp should be cleaned at least twice per week in order to keep it healthy. At the very least, wash your hair once per week.

STEP 2 : Do not apply too much heat to your hair.

Excessive heat can severely damage “african hair”. Strive to avoid overusing flat irons, curling irons and blow dryers in your routine.

Choose roller sets, wraps, twists or up dos that don’t require excessive heat.

STEP 3 : Reduce your use of chemical products.

Avoid overuse of relaxers, texturizers and dyes. Space out the time between relaxers from once every 6 weeks to once ever 12 weeks. Do not keep the chemicals on longer than the recommended time in the hopes of getting straighter hair. Avoid harsh dyes if you have previously relaxed your hair.

But the best is to stop using relaxers, texturizers and dyes !

STEP 4 : Adopt regular trimming habits.

Despite how contradictory as it may seem, hair grows faster when you keep it trimmed.

Ridding your hair of split ends allows tresses to grow healthy by preventing any damage from progressing up the hair shaft.

You have to determine a trim cycle : one per month or one every two months.

STEP 5 : Moisturize your hair consistently.

Moisturising properly is essential to growing long black hair.

Condition your hair often to prevent dry, split ends.

Avoid thick greases and oils that can accumulate and weigh down hair.

Try a few light moisturizers until you find one that works with your specific hair.

[I recommand home remedies, diy products or natural products instead of market’s products.]

STEP 6 : Limit manipulation of your tresses.

Black hair grows best when left alone. Opt for styles that don’t require constant styling.

Braids can help black hair grow long as long as they are used properly and not left in for too long. Make sure they don’t stretch the hair tightly around the edges. Avoid harsh pulling or tugging at the hair.

De-tangle your damp hair with the aid of a little conditioner to avoid breakage and hair loss.

STEP 7 : Use deep protein treatments.

The hair is made mainly of protein so it is essential to use protein treatments regularly to rebuild and straighten the hair.

[Deep condition your hair on a weekly with homemade mask (eggs, avocado, honey, banana).]

Do not use protein treatments more than once per week. Overuse of protein can leave the hair dry and brittle.

STEP 8 : Implement and maintain a healthy diet

Never underestimate the importance of drinking a lot of clean, fresh water to moisturize from the inside out.

Nourish your hair by adding more fresh fruits and vegetables to your diet.

Eat foods rich in vitamins A, D, C, B12 and the other B vitamins, Biotin and Calcium.

According to Harvard School of Public Health, taking a multivitmin daily is a good way to get all the nourishment and nutrition you need in order to stay healty.

Use a multivitamin with those vitamins to help your hair grow. Not only will you have a glowing complexion and a strong, healthy body; you will also have luxuriously shiny long hair.

Things You’ll Need
A good moisturizing conditioner
Protein treatments
Wide tooth comb
Silk scarf

susan pevensie’s hair aka a feat of nature

you know what is really cool? susan’s hair. so, cs lewis says, “and Susan grew into a tall and gracious woman with black hair that fell almost to her feet..” can you imagine? to her FEET. and according to lewis, she’s tall, so IMAGINE 5 FEET 8-10 INCHES OF HAIR. don’t TELL me that she wasn’t a pro at various hairstyles. when she was younger, the dryads and naiads taught her how to pin flowers and make waterfall braids, while the centaur and dwarf ladies taught her how to do the more practical updos. of course, she eventually came up with her own. since she was rarely in battles, she didn’t exactly need to keep her hair short like lucy, and her long hair gave her a more imposing and regal look that would force other dignitaries to respect her (but, she did cut her hair, to keep it healthy and prevent split ends from occurring). although we all have things we like about ourselves, susan was especially vain about her hair, liking how the color shone in the sun and the way the tips curled. in fact, susan’s hair and her various hairstyles became kind of a trend across narnia and the neighboring countries, with many girls choosing to grow their hair out to their hips (few were lucky to either have the ability or the patience to grow it to their feet). out of all of the pevensies, susan took the longest baths and showers, partly because she liked the time to herself and partly because of ALL THAT HAIR. when they got back to england and her hair reverted to its original length, she was very upset. she tried to grow it back, but it never worked (must have been something in that narnian air). 

Tips for keeping your hair healthy!

This is more for people with damaged and dry hair but even if you’ve never dyed your hair this is still helpful

Get a trim every 6-8 weeks! This will prevent split ends from traveling up your hair and will make your hair look nicer and grow faster!

DONT SHAMPOO YOUR HAIR EVERY DAY! If your hair gets greasy after one day without washing it that’s bad!! Your scalp is over producing natural oils because your hair is constantly being stripped of them. You don’t need shampoo because it strips your hair of all the healthy natural stuff. You just need water and maybe a little bit of lemon juice. If u still want to use shampoo then cut back on it to once or twice a week.

Don’t use a lot of heat on your hair! If you do always use heat protectant! Also if you plan on straightening or curling your hair, don’t blow dry it. If you plan on curling your hair, don’t straighten it before hand. It seriously drys out and damages your hair

If your hair is dry and damaged from bleaching it, deep condition it! You can take literally any conditioner and leave a lot of it in your head for like hours (I usually leave it in over night) and then wash it out and your hair will feel like silk

Don’t bleach your hair if it’s already damaged or if you don’t know what your doing. Your hair will feel like gum when it’s wet and break off really easily and look like hay when it’s dry. If you don’t do it right you can get chemical burns.

If your hair is dry/damaged get a repairing conditioner and use it every time you wash your hair and leave it in for like 2-5 minutes. Also don’t wash your hair every day!!! You need natural oils if your hair is dry and damaged!! Let your hair stay greasy for a day or two your hair will love you for it!

I learned all of this from personal experience and from people who are cosmetologists. I am not a cosmetologists but I know how to keep my hair healthy. If you have any questions feel free to ask!!

THE TIP-OFF: STYLING CURLY HAIR WITH MADAM C.J. WALKER

Celebrity hairstylist Matthew Yates gives his expert advice.

There are names in the beauty industry that are downright legendary, and Madam C.J. Walker is deservedly one of them. She’s the first self-made female millionaire in the United States, thanks to savvy marketing of her hair care products. And now her legacy continues at Sephora. Her reimagined yet true-to-her-roots line offers major curl power. The Sephora Glossy tapped the brand’s mane man, celebrity hairstylist Matthew Yates, to get his solves to all your coil conundrums using the reborn collection. JESSICA VELEZ

THE PERFECT BLOWOUT

“I suggest starting in the front to keep the hair from drying up too quickly. Remember, the faster you move, the smoother your blow-dry. You can use either a comb attachment, round brush, or flat brush, depending on your skill level and the tightness of the curl. Follow the way the cuticle naturally lays, as this will seal in all of the wonderful qualities of the products you’re using and ensure a super shiny, frizz-free blow-dry.”  

THE SILKY HAIR ROUTINE

 “When blow-drying curly hair straight, it’s always important to start with great product and tools! Cleanse the hair twice with Brassica Seed & Shea Oils Silkening Shampoo (it’s super rich, so a little goes a long way). After rinsing the hair completely clean from all shampoo, proceed to the Brassica Seed & Shea Oils Silkening Conditioner and massage it through hair (from root to ends) thoroughly. Also, use a wide-tooth comb for equal distribution. Then, towel dry hair and apply Brassica Seed & Shea Oils Silkening Leave-In throughout hair—follow immediately with the Brassica Seed & Shea Oils Silkening Blow Out Crème. These are going to set the angle of your hair and give it the slip that’s necessary for a smooth blow-dry. From there, section hair into four parts, using clips to secure each section, and blow-dry. At this point, you can either rock your blowout as is or use a flat iron or wand for added smoothness. Finish with a little oil and some hair spray, and you’re all set!”

THE LENGTHENING TRICK

“Curly girls embrace their natural shrinkage but sometimes want to rock a longer style. Crazy enough, shrinkage can hide up to 90% of your actual length, especially for very tight coils. Curl Enhancing Jamaican Black & Murumuru Oils Loosen & Stretch Gel provides intense moisture while coating strands to help elongate and shape coils into soft, springy curls.” 

THE MOISTURE MAGIC

“Fabulous styles start with healthy hair. Even if you think your hair is relatively healthy, the change of seasons—from winter cold and wind to summer sun—can be hard on your strands. So, it’s good to get in the habit of using a mask weekly to make sure you’re giving your hair the moisture it needs. The Dream Come True Wonderful Deep Conditioning Masque is great for all hair types and is made with the perfect blend of natural, efficacious ingredients to boost dry, damaged, and color-treated hair. My favorite ingredients are the shea butter (which deeply moisturizes), willow bark (which conditions the scalp), coconut oil (which prevents hair breakage and split ends), and provitamin B5 (which adds luxurious shine).” 

THE LIFE-CHANGING OIL

“The Scent & Shine Coconut Oil was my first introduction to the line, and it literally stopped me in my tracks! Coconut oil is full of amazing benefits when used topically. It’s super moisturizing, yet fast-absorbing and lightweight, while adding luster and shine, preventing breakage, promoting scalp health, and adding softness to hair. It can also be used as a booster if added to the Dream Come True Wonderful Deep Conditioning Masque or any conditioner. I also like the Coconut & Moringa Oils Curl Refresher Mist, which provides the benefit of a hair refresher in between washes. The formulation is light enough to use on finer textures without weighing them down, but still effective enough to add moisture and shine to thicker textures. And the fragrance is just absolutely luxe!”

THE HOT HAIRSTYLE

“I’m obsessed with a great twist out! It’s such an awesome way to manipulate the texture of curly hair without using direct heat. TheJamaican Black Castor Oil collection is ideal when going for this look.

THE UNIVERSAL TIP

“Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Curls thrive off moisture and curly hair can never get enough! Fortunately, Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture is the answer to thirsty curly hair.”

Kara,

If you think Cat Grant, world-famous journalist and media mogul, is going to let ‘mystery’ stand as an answer… well, fine. Just a little longer. I suspect I’d rather unravel this memory in person. You’re still much more tongue-tied around me, and these letters make you a too confident to fluster.

Don’t make offers if you won’t follow through on them, Kara. Why do you think I used to have my hair trimmed twice a week? Admittedly it was to prevent a single split end, but a large part of the joy was having my hair stroked and teased by confident hands. You can pay for a massage, for most things that relax or excite, but with that it has to be under the guise of something else.

This letter is definitely one for the burn pile.

You are now in danger of me asking you to quit your stalled reporting career and come be my full-time hair braider. If we make it Hair-Braider-in-Chief does that sweeten the deal? I kid, of course. I haven’t pulled off a French braid since the day Carter was born, and that was only out of labor room necessity and a nurse hellbent on distracting me.

I’m glad you’ve made peace with Susan. As much as I like her, I don’t expect you to be punished for the petty jealousy you can’t quite help when it comes to me. Let’s not revisit Siobhan.

As the New Year gathers pace it’s time for me to start rolling out my agenda. The staff here are competent but they lack your flair as a human Passion Planner when it comes to details. All the same, I have a series of public events both with the President and without that make me long for my 40th floor office and walking around with no shoes on.

I need a high-profile alien for some of my West Coast events. Do let me know if you think of anyone?

Yours,

@kingdomheartsnyctophiliac replied to your post “how do people just. grow long hair”

I’ve heard multiple times that hair sometimes gets a growth booth when you get it trimmed, because your body can work on growing the hair out rather than splitting its attention on trying to heal/prevent split ends. I’m not a reliable source though LOL

i’ve tried to go that route but my hair doesn’t grow fast enough to make up for the amount i snip off, even if it’s just the tips :(

anonymous asked:

any secrets for growing long and strong hair?

i’m going to make this as informational as possible since i get this question often and i’ll tag it with #tips for u baby :–)

  • take biotin supplements! it is very good for your hair as well as your nails, it makes them both grow faster and stronger
  • try to get consistent trims, cut off a tiny bit (about 1/8 of an inch) every 3 months, this prevents split ends from making their way up your hair
  • conditioner is super important! it’ll help balance the ph levels in your hair that shampoo strips away
  • try to use a deep moisturizing hair mask once a week. you can make your own oil treatment by mixing a cup of coconut oil with one tablespoon of jojoba and/or almond and/or castor oil
  • brush your hair starting from the bottom and work your way up, this prevents fallout
  • do a cold rinse at the end of each shower to lock in hydration and encourage hair growth
  • don’t shampoo your hair daily unless it gets really really oily, but most people should shampoo every two to three days 
  • try not to use too much heat on your hair, if you need to use it make sure to use a heat protecting spray

all of these tips have helped me so i hope that they help you too! 

Bananas are rich in natural oils and vitamins that help to restore hair’s natural elasticity- which will prevent breakage and split ends. Bananas, when used as a deep conditioning treatment, will also soften, restore shine… and control dandruff. You’ll need: 1 banana (peeled), 1 egg, 3 tablespoons milk, 5 tablespoons olive oil (Be sure to apply to freshly shampooed hair).Mix all the ingredients in a blender. Apply the mixture to your hair- from root to end. Let soak into your hair for about 15- 30 minutes. Rinse out with shampoo/conditioner and style as usual.

Karrueche Shares Her Beauty Secrets - Allure

How do you get ready in the morning? “After I wake up, I take a shower, and then that’s when I wash my face. I used to use Clean & Clear’s Morning Burst Cleanser, but I’ve started using Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser [instead]. After I get out, I moisturize with Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer. I get bags under my eyes, so I put Benefit’s Puff Off! under them every day. Some days I’ll put on a face mask for 30 minutes and then I’ll wash it off in the shower.”

What face mask do you use? “I go to Target and I buy packs of Que Bella masks. Each one is $2. The Relaxing Lavender Aromatherapy Mud Mask works best on me.”

You have the best eyebrows. What are your secrets? “I shape them myself with a pair of tweezers. When I do them, I start by lining the bottom of my brows with Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. Then I use a brush with a slant to it to fill in the rest of my brows with Billion Dollar Brows Mad About Brows powder. Finally, I take my concealer that I use under my eyes and use another brush and apply it under my brown bones, so I get a clean line.”

What’s the hairstyle you wear most often? “My go-to everyday style is a part down the middle and straight with a bit of a wave to it. I just do a simple blow-dry with a good brush. I use Agadir’s Featherlite Pro Round Brush. Sometimes I’ll have to use my flat iron to flatten out my split ends and hide them.”

Do you do anything to help prevent split ends? “I use OGX’s Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo and Conditioner. I also use Biosilk.

What are things you do to keep your skin healthy? “I’ve been drinking tons of water lately. I’ve cut back on a lot of fast food. There are times when I give in and I really want McDonald’s, but cutting back on the sweets and the fast food makes a big difference—especially in the summer when it’s hot.”

What about your night-time skin-care routine? “I always wash my face at night, even if I have to use face wipes. I used to sleep in my makeup a lot and I ended up with little bumps on my face. But now that I’ve been making sure I clean my face before I go to bed, it’s been a bit better. I also always spray on Mario Badescu’s Facial Spray with Aloe, Herb and Rosewater.

What concealer and foundation do you use? “I’ve found that Nars makes the perfect foundation for me. The Nars Concealer and foundation is amazing. The color works well and it blends right.”

What are your future goals when it comes to your career in beauty? “I really want a beauty campaign with an awesome brand, like Maybelline or Covergirl. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.”

I just purchased grapeseed oil and now I'm not sure what to do with it. Any thoughts?

-You can use it as a scalp massage to prevent dandruff.
-Use it as a sealant to seal in moisture & massage it through the ends to prevent split ends.
-You can use it as a pre-poo before shampooing. It will make u hair softer.
-Use it as a hot oil by mixing in other oils or by itself to make u hair stronger thus less shedding.
- mix it with your favorite moisturizer to promote hair growth, it’s full of antioxidants, vitamin c and linoelic acid all hair growth enhancers.
- grapeseed oil is great for skin as well. So give it a try and the great thing is that it’s ordorles.
