Hair Care During Winter

To avoid causing brittleness, always use the medium temperature when using the dryer; not using it is a better option, although this may be hard for many. As moisture is lost from your hair in extreme weather conditions, blow drying increases the damage. Dry and brittle hair is the end result. This goes too for the flat and curling irons.

Frequent hair washing is helpful in extreme weather conditions, although many think otherwise. They prefer to put on a cap or hat to cover their hair while some wear a scarf over their hair, all of which causes a high increase of sebum in your hair. It is more advisable to wash your hair frequently to remove the sebum and dirt sticking onto your hair, and eliminate the possibility of scalp problems like dandruff and an itchy scalp.

Hair care products
Sometimes one needs the extra assistance that comes in the form of good quality hair care products. Hair care specialists have designed special products through deep research and study to put back what is lacking in your hair for a return of its glow and good health. Keep in mind to check the ingredients of your hair care product. It should have majority of natural ingredients.

Choose a hydrating shampoo and a good conditioner as part of your hair care regimen. Sometimes you can leave the conditioner on for a longer time to get rid of the static; at times, you might want to put on a masque to repair your hair and strengthen it.

Buy Hair Extensions

Remy Extensions

Actually, Remy is a way of bundling natural hair in order to maintain the direction of the ends and roots. Often, Remy don’t get entangled since the cuticles don’t get mixed. Aside from this, Remy hair is on top of the list as far as healthy hair is concerned. This is due to the process of picking them. They are picked one by one, which means each strand will be in good shape.

Seamless Extensions

These hair extensions are usually put near the head. They are not placed near your hairline. This is done in order to give the illusion of your real hair. Actually, you need to apply them to the direction of your real hair so that the strands could flow with your real hair. The most important thing is that you can’t use heat and other tools. So your hair won’t get damaged at all.

They Should Match Your Hair Color

One of the most common mistakes that buyers make when buying hair extension is they don’t choose the right color. The majority of extension companies provide several colors that allow you to pick the best shade. The beauty of this is that you can’t get the right highlights and low-lights without using other treatments.

Maintenance Tips

if you have quality hair extensions, you don’t need to do much for maintenance. They will just like your own hair. To keep your hair in good shape, you should brush them on a regular basis and use quality products for cleaning them. All you have to do is stick to your methods that you use to take care of your real hair. However, keep in mind that you can’t go to bed with your hair extensions on.

Hair Extensions are Safe

If you maintain your hair on a regular basis, they won’t get damaged. The same is true for your hair extension as well. As soon as you have taken off the extensions, you will feel normal in a couple of weeks.

Cosmetic Tattoo

Color migration or what is called a blowout happens in normal tattooing and cosmetic tattooing is not an exception. Migration of color can happen anywhere the pigment is injected, but it seems that the face and certain parts of its tissue structure are prone to it, like the eyeliner. Pigment eyeliner migration is a common mishap.

Lightening of pigment – happens over time, with the use of certain skin lightening peels and creams.

Shape adjustments – a little want of symmetry for eyebrows, lips etc.

The accidents and their medical implications are another whole story.

It is preferable to do this under the supervision of a qualified tattoo artist who takes precautions. Practitioners include dermatologists, cosmetologists, tattooists and nurses. Hepatitis B and C can be contracted with equipment that has not been sterilized appropriately.

Keloid scarring, cold sores, fever blisters, allergies, adverse reactions to MRI on account of the ferromagnetic dyes are all some medical consequences of cosmetic tattooing going wrong. Allergic reactions may occur immediately or even after some years, appearing as a rash. Any pigment that is vegetable based is prone to causing allergies unlike iron oxide, which is the safest pigment.

So what happens when a cosmetic tattoo needs correction?

A cosmetic tattoo correction is required in two cases:

  • When the shape needs to be improved
  • When the color fades

In the first case, there is a product commonly known as magic color which camouflages the earlier tattoo and can be used on eyebrows, eyeliner and the lips. It is suitable for all skin tones, from dark to light.

Color correction – this may need different corrector pigments for different situations. For example, blue eyebrows will need a blue eyebrow corrector pigment, pink or orange eyebrows will need a purple eyebrow corrector pigment.

All corrections usually require more than one sitting and patience is required.

It is important to be trained in pigment colors and skin tones, since some pigment colors do not work well on some skin tones.

The other different methods of removal of cosmetic tattoos are:

  • Laser treatment
  • Dermabrasion
  • TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid)
  • Salabrasion (rubbing the skin with salt)
  • Cryosurgery
  • Excision

Useful Things About Conditioner

Condition before you shampoo

Applying the conditioner before the actual shampoo gives the option to improve the body of your hair. A high-quality conditioner is likely to stay in your hair and won’t fully rinse out. A conditioner that is left in the hair after exiting the shower may have the effect of weighting down the hair. This means the all-round volume of the hair is reduced. But, reversing the showering habits you get to whisk away any residue which helps to encourage the better bounce.

Use the right conditioner

No single conditioner is able to give the desired results for everyone. The conditioner is often chosen based on a factor like the texture of the hair. For instance, the volumizing product is great for the thin hair, while a low oil formula is practical for those with greasy, thick hair. Picking the right conditioner can have a significant impact on the appearance of your hair.

Roots should be avoided

It is extremely important to avoid the roots when it comes to conditioning. The best course of action is to start at the tips and slowly work up the length of the hair. The mid-length point is usually far enough to give your hair the hydration it needs.

Working with hair-colored strands

For the ladies who have colored their hair it is usually best to apply a different approach to maintaining the healthy hair. A hair mask is a great way to maintain the color and make sure it stays present in the hair for longer. A high-quality mask has the ability to protect your hair’s cuticle and seal in the color.
