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.

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!

The Power of Shea Butter

0 Comments

The fat of the nut of the African Shea tree (vitellaria paradoxa) is the source of Shea butter. The traditional use of the butter is to reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars and stretch marks, and to ease a variety of skin irritations, such as psoriasis, eczema and sunburn. Shea butter is a rich source of moisture, vitamins and fat for your skin and hair. In its natural state, shea butter is a thick, yellowish butter that liquefies at body temperature. Natural anti-inflammatory properties make it a nourishing choice for the scalp, helping to improve your hair growth and health.

Saturday Scalp Treatment

0 Comments

A little TLC can help to keep your skin and hair in excellent condition even in the cold, dry months. If your skin dries out when the weather becomes cooler every autumn, then you probably notice a dry, itchy scalp, and maybe even some flakes, this time of year.

fall beauty

An unhealthy scalp is not only uncomfortable; it can also stop your hair from thriving, which can lead to slower growth and less luster. The culprits are the low moisture contents of cool outside air and heated inside air. Do you need a hair intervention? Well fear not! We have the prescription that you’re looking for – the prescription for a healthy, moisturized scalp with an easy Saturday Scalp Treatment:

  • Before shampooing, apply Scalp Renew to your scalp, massage and let sit for 10 to 15 minutes to exfoliate and cleanse scalp; it is recommended to put a cap over the hair and sit under a dryer.
  • After showering, apply small drops of Scalp Nourishing Serum to the scalp to increase circulation and nourish.

Get a healthy scalp and beautiful hair every season with Jane Carter Solution!

Nutrients for a Head Full of Hair

0 Comments

Better looking hair can start at your next meal! When it comes to healthy hair, it’s not just what you put on your strands that count; it’s what you put in your body, too. The nutrients you eat today help fortify the hair follicle — from which each strand is born — and the scalp that surrounds it. Just like skin, the condition of your hair is an outward sign of inside health. The cells that make up each strand of hair require a regular supply of key nutrients.

  • Step 1 – Drink lots of water. If you don’t hydrate your body, your hair follicles will not be healthy enough to produce the keratin you need to re-grow your hair
  • Step 2 – Drink green tea. According to the Health Journal website, the more green tea you drink the more DHT blockers you get into your system and the more you reduce your chances of balding
  • Step 3 – Massage your scalp…with a small amount of Jane Carter Solution Restore Grow Great Hair.
  • Step 4 – Consume protein. Eggs are a wonderful source of protein that can help re-grow your hair. Eggs also contain biotin, which will help your hair follicles produce keratin and make your hair stronger. Milk, cheese, yogurt and beans also contain a lot of protein. Vegetables that are rich in protein include spinach, artichoke, chickpeas, broccoli, corn and potatoes.
