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.

Seal in Skin’s Moisture with Nourish & Shine

0 Comments

nourish-and-shine

The best part of summer is spending days outside on the beach, at barbecues and in the pool. Unfortunately, soaking up the sun’s rays and chlorine damages our skin; this damage shows up in your complexion by fall. Experiencing dull and rough from a summer of outdoor activities? Exfoliation is needed prior to moisturizing as the skin is dehydrated and covered in dryness. (eeeek!)

Start with a homemade pumpkin sugar scrub to slough off dead skin cells; this will allow for your skin to absorb the natural butters, vitamins and essential oils in Jane Carter Solution Nourish & Shine. Adding pumpkin to your scrub will assist your skin in recovering; the enzymes in pumpkin pulp dissolve dull, dead cells to reveal healthy radiant skin underneath. Try this recipe:

sugar-scrub

  • 1/2 cup organic pureed pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup organic brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • Add a small amount of powdered cinnamon, clove, or a drop of vanilla – all three can scents can also be added as essential oils, but just use a drop or two

Mix all ingredients in a clean, unbreakable bowl with a spoon. Apply generously to your body during your shower or bath, rinse well. Dry off completely and hydrate your skin with Nourish & Shine to seal in moisture…your skin will thank you!

Enjoy your weekend.

End-of-Summer Hair Refresher

0 Comments

We all love the carefree, laid-back vibe of summer – especially when it comes to beauty. Simple, light and quick; the summer is all about embracing yourself in the moment in order to not waste a single moment of sunshine! The downfall starts to rear its ugly head at the end of the season; all of the sun, saltwater and chlorine has been wreaking havoc on your hair. What can you do help your hair bounce back for the upcoming fall season?

 

Follow these tips:

1.             Trim Those Ends

Trimming your ends is critical after the summer months! Heat and sun can really frazzle your mane, particularly the ends of hair which are constantly exposed to the sizzling elements.

2.             Replenish Moisture

Can’t stress this enough… make time for a deep conditioning treatment, with heat! You don’t even need to see a professional for this task; use Jane Carter Solution Nutrient Replenishing Conditioner followed by Jane Carter Solution Hydrate Quench.

3.             Remove Build Up 

Swimmers aren’t the only ones who need to worry about chlorine build-up; ordinary tap water deposits chlorine and other minerals in your hair along with styling products and your scalp’s natural oils can build up and weigh hair down. Combat this residue with Jane Carter Solution Hydrating Invigorating Shampoo SLS-Free.

4.             Chop it Up

Feeling blah about your hair as you’ve let it grow out during your easy, breezy, carefree summer? Spice things up with a few face-framing layers and/or longer layers throughout, which will give your hair that oomph and movement you’re looking for come fall.

5.             New Season, New Trick

Flip through magazines, blogs, Instargram and Pinterest for a new fall style; nothing like a new style trick up your sleeve to kick start the season. Try a new updo, or twist out or hair accessory; step outside of the box for funky fall fun.

 

With summer almost over, it’s time to switch gears and get ready for the cool weather by repairing the damage acquired during the summer months. You’re on the path to healthy tresses!

Resurgence of the Summer Hat

0 Comments

Floppy hats compliment carefree style; the perfect accessory to basking in the sun with your toes playing in the sand! Nothing screams easy breezy summer days and warm summer nights like a fabulous summer hat.

Jane Carter Solution11

Not only a fashion must have but also the perfect way to shield your hair from the scorching rays of the sun. It’s during this time that the rise in temperature tends to dry out hair leaving it lifeless, dry, and brittle. Underneath the hat, your hair should be protected by the products that you use; here are three tips using Jane Carter Solution products:

  • Add Hydrate Quench to your hair daily. This step is especially key for chemically processed hair because it tends to interact with the summer sun resulting in brittleness, color change, and breakage.
  • Apply Nourish & Shine liberally to your hair before taking a dive into chlorinated water or sea water. It will act as a seal to protect your hair from absorbing chlorine or salt which is extremely drying.
  • Rinse your hair immediately after swimming. As soon as you get home, shampoo with Moisture Nourishing Shampoo; it will cleanse the hair of any residue and replenish the moisture.

Enjoy the summer sun!

 

Love Your Hair,

Cure Dry Summer Skin

0 Comments

Dehydrated, flaky, dull skin and lips are just a few of the joys that summer brings. The scorching summer sun followed by arctic-like air conditioning temperatures can leave your skin irritated, rough, dry and itchy.

 nourish & shine

Most of us reach for that bottle of lotion to cure the symptoms, but the ingredients list on most brand-name lotions usually reads like a science experiment. (eeeek!) Get back to basics with an all-natural fix that will quench your skin without chemical additives…Jane Carter Solution Nourish & Shine to cure your summer solstice winter related skin issues.

Don’t forget to feed your skin from the inside out with a diet rich in magnesium, essential fatty acids, vitamin C, and beta-carotene naturally feeds your skin and makes it less prone to dryness. Make an effort to “feed your skin” with a meal plan that includes dark chocolate, salmon, and other fatty fish, oranges, mango, and carrots.
