Achieving Vintage Curls

Recently vintage curls have been popping up at celebrity events, shows and in everyday life. The key to achieving the perfect vintage curls, that will hold, is using the right tools and products. Here are my tips to creating beautiful, vintage curls.

  1. For that gorgeous curl, you’ll want a versatile tool that heats up quickly and evenly. One tool that not only straightens hair but also creates luscious curls and waves is the GHD flatiron.
  2. Technique is important when using a heated tool, like the GHD flat iron in the video above. Always use a thermalizer to shield hair from thermal damage.
  3. After you’ve completed your vintage curls, spray a silicone polish to give curls a brilliant gloss and eliminate frizz.

I hope these tips have encouraged you to try creating your very own vintage curls utilizing beauty tools and products that help keep your hairdo all day long and that you can use to attempt some beautiful (and simple!) looks. For additional beauty tips please click here or follow me on:

Ask Jeffrey: Can Cold Weather Cause Hair Tangling?

Woman in Hat copy

I have been noticing a great deal of tangling in my nape area as well as the underside of my hair. It seems to have increased in the last few weeks. Is it possible that the cold weather is causing my hair to tangle?” Janelle V.

Janelle, thank you for your question! This is an excellent question, and one that I believe many women will benefit from.

The weather in the Cleveland area has definitely turned more frigid…Brrrrr! With that change of weather also comes a change in the clothes that we wear. During the winter months we wear heavier clothes to stay warm, but it can be these added layers that are causing the tangling and friction you are experiencing.

Sweaters, scarves, hats and jackets that are made out of wool or rougher materials are great to keep us warm; however they are also one of the leading contributors to tangles in hair. As you wear these items your hair is constantly rubbing against these materials and articles of clothing, especially in the collar area (nape area) and the underside of your hair. This constant rubbing causes friction and friction leads to tangling. This is very similar to what you can experience at night if you are not sleeping on a satin pillow case (Click Here to read more about friction caused at night).

Combine the heavier clothes and the natural dryness in the air during winter months and you have the perfect combination for dry, tangly hair.

The best way to combat against the friction, tangles and dry hair, is to

Ask Jeffrey – 3 Minute Protein

“Why do I have to leave the protein treatment in my hair for 3 minutes?” -Cathy

Each hair follicle represents a tree branch. Just like the bark on wood, your hair cuticles gets dry and rough. Using Beautiful Hair Protein Treatment on your hair, along with the Beautiful Hair Moisturizing Conditioner will penetrate below the cuticle and repair damage and keep your hair beautiful!

Here is a list of reasons why we use the protein treatment:

  1. Splint ends will be repaired
  2. Natural Body will be increased
  3. Hair will be more manageable
  4. Chemical services will be more predictable as the damaged areas of the hair are protected against further damage.
  5. Expect to see a dramatic increase of hair’s shine and luster

Waiting 3 minutes matters! If you don’t your hair is not getting the full reparative benefits of protein, and there is nothing worse than hair that is damaged, tangled or broken due to a lack of protein.

Budgeting for YOUR Hair Loss Solution

bigstock-Money-accumulation-concept-Mo-18977981

There are many factors that will influence your hair loss solution selection. Certain options will meet your budget. Others will meet the degree of quality you require, and yet others may best meet your time constraints. A part of my New Years resolution is to help you figure out how you can find a solution for your individual hair loss.

My advice starts by using the total approach mentality to evaluate the best investment you can make. Consider timeline, quality and cost, as well as any other factors of importance to you. Of course, the quality of your initial investment will help drive the success of the solution for your situation. I strongly encourage you to seek out a hair restoration and replacement professional that can expertly guide you.

Save Your Hair From Towel Friction

 

Do you get out of your shower and immediately dry your hair with your towel in a rough tussling motion? Would you continue to do so if I told you it could be one of the leading causes of friction in hair, and that friction leads to tangling and hair breakage? I hope not and, I have a solution.

The towels we use to dry our hair are filled with loops. These are great for the body but these loops when used in a rough tussling motion will grab onto hair and create friction an breakage. The solution – A friction free microfiber towel. These towels are designed with soft, loop free, materials that are made to decrease or eliminate friction while also absorbing excess moisture in hair. When used to blot hair dry they will not only help to eliminate friction and tangling caused by hair drying, but also help to decrease the time needed to blow dry hair.

Remaining Thankful

11.27

Today is Thanksgiving – a day for us all to remember what we are thankful for…but what about the other 364 days of the year???

Life throws challenges at us and while it is easy to give thanks when everything in our lives is going well or the way that we want it to be, it is a discipline to give thanks even throughout life’s challenges.

Overcoming difficulties, depression, anxiety, disappointment, failures and so much more is a part of our lives and by being thankful on a regular basis, you will appreciate more and live a happier and more fulfilled life.

Remember that God loves us so much that even throughout the challenges we face He is by our side and helping us through it all. If we choose to discipline our thoughts and words, to be thankful for where we are at in our lives and what is to come, then we will diminish the negative feelings, thoughts and actions and focus on our positive life experiences.

As you gather this year, possibly with close loved ones, and give thanks just recollect on the good that has happened and that is still unseen and being worked out for your future. It’s time to unleash the “Gift of Thanksgiving!”

“Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.” (Philippians 4:8, 9 MSG)

Hair Loss: Is This Much Normal?

11.19

Some of us see the hairs we lose. We notice them on our clothes, in our brushes, on our pillows, or on our bathroom floors. Others aren’t sure what happened. It’s a mystery that leaves us wondering if we’ve used the right products through the years, if we’ve made a mistake with a certain styling routine or color processing, or if we have some sort of medical problem.
