Grow Healthy Summer Hair

0 Comments

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.

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!
