How To Use Pureology's New Fresh Approach Dry Shampoo And Dry Condition

Learn how to use Pureology's new Fresh Approach Dry Shampoo and Dry Condition with Natasha Sunshine, a Pureology Artistic Ambassador.

Fresh Approach Dry Shampoo is different because it is mineral infused and will soak up oils and leave your with a satin finish, compared to the matte finish most dry shampoos give you because of the powders they use.

Start at your natural part, and take 1 inch sections of your hair at a time, and spray from the roots. You only need to use dry shampoo where you see shine, you don't need to spray all of your hair. Once you are finished spraying, brush through all your hair.

To use the Fresh Approach Dry Condition, spray from the middle of your hair, to the ends. Once again, throughly brush it through your hair, fluff, and you're done!

5 Hair Care Tips for Making Every Day a Good Healthy Hair Day

What's the key to healthy hair? Under all those gorgeous tresses there's skin that needs TLC. A healthy scalp is foundational to maintaining beautiful, healthy hair. Your hair follicles are fed and nourished by the blood and tissues of the scalp. Keep your scalp happy and healthy by following these five tips:

1. Add Nutrients

Just like your body, your hair and scalp need nutrients and thrive when fed good things. Vitamin E in hair products can help improve scalp circulation and stimulate hair growth. Olive oil is one of the top ingredients to seek out in your hair care products. It's very hydrating to the hair and rich in beta-carotene, fatty acids and antioxidants. It softens and moisturizes the scalp and helps to create the optimal conditions for hair growth.

2. Avoid Irritants

Any ingredient that has a drying effect on your skin will have an even worse effect on your scalp. Fatty alcohols like stearyl, myristyl and cetyl are moisturizing; other types of alcohol are drying, such as denatured alcohol, propanol, ethanol and isopropyl. Be sure to check the list of ingredients in the hair products you buy and avoid the ones with the drying alcohols. Salicylic acid can be found in products that treat flaking scalps, but these products should be used sparingly -- no more than once per week. Menthol is another ingredient to use in moderation; while it can have a cooling, refreshing and invigorating effect (like peppermint), it can also cause itching in sensitive scalps.

3. A Quality Brush

Choose a brush made of soft plastic, as it is gentler on hair than harsh boar bristles or more rigid natural bristles. Find a brush with ball-tipped bristles for a smoother effect on the hair and brush lightly. Vented brushes allow for a more even dispersion of heat and smoother brushing while blow-drying. Hair dries more quickly without burning of your hair or scalp. The gentlest option of all? A wide-toothed comb.

4. Massage

Regular scalp massages help promote circulation, which stimulates hair follicles to grow thicker and more lustrous hair. After applying shampoo, take time to gently massage your scalp with your fingertips for 30 seconds to a minute. You can also do a prewash massage with nurturing oils such as grapeseed oil, an antioxidant-rich argan oil or a soothing naturally antibacterial lavender oil. Work just a few drops of the oil into your scalp and slowly massage for a minute or two.

5. Sun Protection

Just as the rest of your skin requires protection from the sun, so does your scalp. Prolonged exposure to UV rays can burn your scalp, dehydrate it and lead to itching. Repeated sun exposure will dry out your hair and make it brittle. The sun has an aging effect on hair just as it does the skin and can result in a coarse, dry texture. Take precautions to wear a light-colored hat or scarf if you know you'll be out in direct sun.

5 Tips to Prolong the Life of Your Hair Extensions

You Get What You Pay For

Honestly, we've all heard the phrase before: "You get what you pay for." Well, hair extensions are no exception. The higher quality the hair, the longer your hair will look luscious, beautiful, and full. Choosing the right stylist is also very important. Many hair stylists know different techniques and have different strengths when it comes to installing the hair. Make sure the one you choose knows how to work with your hair texture, the hair extensions, and the method you want to install them with. If you decide to color your hair, make sure to work with the same stylist who will ensure that your hair matches the hair extensions.

Avoid Products With Alcohol

Alcohol dries out your hair! Many of the drug store and beauty supply store brand shampoos, conditioners, and styling aids come with alcohol on the label. Be very wary of any product labels mentioning ethanol alcohols. There are a few alcohols that will actually condition your hair instead of drying it out, such as cetyl alcohol or benenyl alcohol. Usually derived from a coconut or a palm tree, these types of alcohols are usually in a sold, thicker form. All in all, be very careful of what products you're putting into your hair extensions.

Treat Your New Hair Like It's Your Own

Don't be afraid to give your hair a conditioning treatment or style the hair extensions with the same care you'd use on your own hair. Air-dry as often as possible and use low heat when styling to avoid heat damage. Brush your locks at night before bed and in the morning before and after showering.

Satin Is Your Friend

Whether it's a satin pillow or a satin cap, you need one for sleeping in a night. During the night, our sleep movements against other materials like cotton cause friction that damages the hair creating tangles. Avoid this by wrapping your hair up in a satin cap or choosing to use a satin pillow case. If you're want to be extra cautious, use both! The plus side is you'll feel like royalty as you sleep on satin.

Professional Maintenance & Upkeep

Seek a professional hair stylist who will not only install the hair extensions for you but also maintain them during the life of your new hair. The kind of hair extensions you choose will depend on what kind of maintenance you need but overall, you should seek professional help in order to get the maximum life out of your hair extensions.

So those are our ways of keeping your the modern marvel of your hair extensions in it's ultra fabulous condition. Have any more friendly tips? Leave a comment below and share your knowledge!
