Thando Kafele: Advice from the Lock Star

Natural Hair During Colder Weather

A of my clients are more concerned with their style options, and are not convinced that natural hair provides versatility and beauty. Protective styling is very important during the winter months; both locks and other styles will need a large amount of moisture to stay healthy in the colder months.

Conditioning Your Locks

A lot of stylists don’t stress the importance of conditioning natural hair and locks. There is a misconception that conditioner will loosen up the locks. Hair needs more moisture in cold weather and hair and scalp treatments are very important.

How to Use Products at Home

Clients need to leave the salon with products and a follow up regimen. I suggest using a hooded hair steamer with Nourish & Shine cocktailed with Scalp Nourishing Serum, and then sit the client under the steamer for 10-15 minutes. If you don’t have a steamer you can do the same treatment using a plastic cap for 30 minutes. Use plastic cap with or without a dryer. However, for best results use a dryer.

Iconic Women with Iconic Hair

Iconic Women

Giving good hair is a powerful thing! Long hair, short hair, colored hair, weaved hair, shaved hair – don’t care. These ladies are not only known for making headlines and careers, but they have influenced our culture at some time, coiffures that have inspired envy and imitation over the past century. These women unwittingly started pop culture history’s most memorable hair trends with their iconic hairstyles, past and present. Some of these fashionable hairdo’s have faded into obscurity, others have crept back into relevance. Over time style has evolved, thus creating several fashion changing hairstyles; only a few hairstyles become coveted, it takes a woman who truly ‘owns’ a look to make it iconic. At the time it might have felt they were being outlandish, provocative, or that they were pushing buttons but really they just knew who they were and didn’t apologize for it.

One of the beauty hurdles we obsess over is trying to find that perfect hairstyle that make us look (and feel) fantastic! Framing the face, hair is a huge part of our appearance; changing our hair is one of the easiest ways to alter our image, but keeping it the same can cement your signature style. The icons of beauty have stuck by their own looks and found comfort in being themselves. Finding your individual style and being happy with it is such a positive affirmation, especially when individuality tends to get lost in this day and age.

We at Jane Carter Solution promote individuality in women and support all women accepting their hair texture! Ask yourself:

Do I have a signature style?

Am I presenting myself and my hair in a way that’s true to who I really am?

Does my hair make me feel beautiful and empowered?

Let the journey to finding your iconic style start now!

Love Your Hair,

Jane

Combat Cold Weather: No More Winter Hair Woes

winterblues

When winter weather hits, a bad hair day can last an entire season! As much as you like that nip in the air during winter, your hair is susceptible to a bunch of hair-raising situations that can ruin your entire day. It almost seems as if dry hair and winter is an inseparable pair. This season’s Polar Vortex is the most rigorous, and it is your hair’s number one enemy. Taking care of your hair truly is a year-long process, especially when frosty temperatures have taken over; dry scalp, brittle hair, static electricity, flyaways, limp locks, and split ends are some of the challenges your strands face.

No matter what’s causing your winter hair woes, you can take both protective and replenishing steps. Products that contain fatty acids and humectants are best at moisturizing parched hair; the butters and essential oils Jane Carter Solution products provided an added bonus of longer lasting hydration and moisture retention. The key is in conditioning! Regular deep conditioning, with heat, feeds the hair nutrients and increases the penetration to the cortex. Leave-in conditioner not only protects hair from the elements but also provides a final protective seal on the hair shaft, helping to preserve the moisture and nourishment that you have just fed your hair through conditioning.

Remember, hydrating your hair properly prevents unnecessary breakage, dryness, dullness and frizz. Just as water is necessary to hydrate your skin, it is also just as important for your hair. Hydrated hair is more porous and has a greater ability to absorb nutrients; leaving you with gorgeous hair all-year round.

We want to know and see what your winter hair woes are. Share your photo on our Facebook page for your change to win 3 Jane Carter Solution Daily Hydration products to combat your winter hair woes!
