Grow Healthy Summer Hair

I have a secret (that’s not really a secret) to share with you all…healthy hair begins with a healthy scalp. To get gorgeous, healthier, thicker hair you need to start at the root – the scalp. Perhaps because our scalp is covered by a full head of hair that it is the most neglected part of body; our roots crave nourishment and requires equal, if not more, care.Your hair follicles depend heavily on the surrounding tissue for their blood supply to remain healthy; you can help keep your scalp happy and healthy with a little extra attention.

If you truly want healthy hair, shampoos and conditioners can only take you halfway through the journey. This is a collective effort that requires shampoos and conditioners free of harmful ingredients but also scalp TLC. Treatments that focus on the scalp are essential; just like your face, this delicate skin changes as you age and needs constant maintenance. Start with Jane Carter Solution, we’ve got you! We’ve developed these 3 great products to promote a healthy scalp and hair growth or hair restoration, mentioned in a recent Lucky Magazine blog post.

Tips for Removing Your Protective Hairstyle

0 Comments

Protective hairstyles have become the secret to tress success for many naturalistas! Protective styling doesn’t make your hair grow, but they do make it possible to prevent breakage since your hair may be breaking off faster than it grows. What protective styles do is keep your ends “protected.” These styles are more about hair retention; just make sure that no matter which way you wear your hair, that your ends are tucked away.

To maintain the health of the hair you just protected, you want to make sure the removal process is smooth and breakage. Follow these 4 tips below:

Patience, patience, patience! It’s all about timing! If you’re not in the mood to take your style down, wait until you are. The process can be tedious and requires a gentle touch.

Add moisture to the mix. Your hair will be much more manageable and easier to work with when there is moisture. Use Revitalizing Leave-In Conditioner to add ease to the removal.

Start at the ends. If you’re taking out two strand twists or box braids start from the ends of your hair and slowly work your way up until it is removed.

Tangles Happen, Don’t Panic. This is true especially as your hair gets longer. Even if you’re very careful with your hair, knots can still form. Don’t panic, don’t tug, don’t brush it – just breathe! Take your time and simply slowly undo the knot.

Master detangling your hair. Detangle while hair is wet and saturated with conditioner; apply Nutrient Replenishing Conditioner, work through tangles with a wide tooth comb or your fingers.

Tea Time

0 Comments

It’s the holidays, a time for fun, family and, of course, food. You’re not focused on what you should be eating, your portion sizes and especially not adhering to your gym routine.  So what can you do to minimize the end-of-year overindulgence? Drink green tea, the preferred drink of health enthusiast and supermodels.

holiday tea

Green tea is good for you as it is naturally rich in antioxidants; it comes in varied flavors to satisfy all tastes. Green tea isn’t fermented, as black and oolong teas are, it contains the highest concentration of powerful antioxidants. A few cups of green tea per day can lower bad cholesterol and promote weight loss; the bonus, it’s a hair growth stimulant! The epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) found in green tea can help in hair loss prevention. This powerful antioxidant has been found in researches to be an effective hair growth stimulant to prevent hair thinning.

So next time you’re in the mood for something warm or you’ve overindulged in your Grandmother’s sweet potato pie, consider going green. Not only will it provide you with a refreshing drink, it may also boost your health, help slow aging, make you slimmer and stimulate hair growth.

Now that’s a gift that keeps on giving!

The Long and Short of It

0 Comments

Never sure whether to crop your hair or grow it out? When it comes to hairstyles, many women manage to look great in both long and short styles. But at the end of the day, we firmly believe that you’re either a “long hair” or “short hair” girl…or lucky enough to be able to rock both.

hair cut

Women have always been told that our hair is our crown and glory; even in the media it is highly suggested that women with longer hair are deemed “more desirable” (the longer, the better). The success of long hair as a signal of attractiveness is perhaps the best example of a culturally imposed beauty norm there is. Finally, there has been an influx of short and cropped-haired cuties showing up on red carpets and in magazine spreads.

For those with long hair:

Have you ever had a haircut that prompted insecurity, mostly because of what you thought society would think? Did it make you question your femininity or how attractive the opposite sex would find you?

For those with short hair:

Did cutting your hair push you outside of your comfort zone? Did it redefine your ideals regarding sexiness?

All of us get scissor-happy at one time or other. You see a great haircut on someone else and think, “I could totally pull that off!” Some are just born to wear hair short and sassy….rock on!

Men’s Corner: Treating Male Pattern Baldness

0 Comments

A full head of hair is associated with strength, virility and power from a male perspective. Unfortunately it’s out of our control as male-pattern baldness is controlled genetically and seems to be passed down predominantly on the mother’s side; if your maternal grandfather or uncles are bald, you might lose your hair too. The process can begin at any time from puberty but most often comes on around 30; by 50, half of all men have lost some hair.

70% of men suffer from male-pattern baldness. I’m not referring to a bit of hairline receding but diminishing hair in the crown are. This is a warning sign; don’t wait until you are fully bald, the fight is over then. The time to act is at the first sign on thinning! Some want an alternative to medication due to possible allergic skin reactions and the risk of systemic effects due to the absorption through the scalp.

Going Natural?

0 Comments

Making the transition from straight to natural hair can be difficult, whether your hair be loose curls or tight kinks. It can be as challenging for someone who has blown out their hair straight their whole lives as for someone who has chemically relaxed their hair since they were a child. It is about learning to accept the texture with which you’ve been born rather than trying to mold it into something else.

transitioning

Transitioning to natural hair is a process of growing out your natural texture before cutting off the processed or damaged ends. Once you start to grow out your natural texture, you will have to re-learn how to care for your new hair. Whether you’re looking to transition or big chop, every product that you put on your hair should be filled with moisture. Start by using moisturizing cleansers, conditioners, deep conditioners and oils to minimize hair breakage and keep both hair textures healthy.

Going natural is one of the greatest decisions a person can make. Women all over the world are in pursuit of healthy, beautiful, and stylish hair and transitioning to grow natural hair can be an exciting experience. Remember to:

  • Figure out why you are transitioning — dye damage, heat styling damage, etc. — and don’t let yourself forget it!
  • Focus on the positive aspects of transitioning: saving money, less hassle, less upkeep!
  • Trek the road with a friend. When two people conquer their fears together, nothing can stand in their way!
