Curly Hair Products

Is there a shampoo out there that will take your hair from straight to curly in one use? NO. However, many of these products do what they do very well. They are meant to add body and volume by stripping away the oils and dirt that can weigh the hair down, and giving some swell to the hair to "fluff " it up.  If your hair is naturally curly, but has been weighed down by product buildup, or is fine and thin in texture, these shampoos can vitalize the curl and give you maximum results.

What creates volume in hair styling products?

Most volumizing products contain ingredients that create 'hold' to lift hair away from the head. Good volumizing products also incorporate technologies that have charges, mostly cationic (they bind with keratin and are positive charged while hair is negative charged), that allow hair strands to have lift and weightlessness. There are also additional ingredients that are used to address concerns associated with flat, limp, and fine hair. Those ingredients include oil-control compounds (to help restrict sebum that may weigh down hair, making it look limp and dull), as well as blends to strengthen the hair cortex, address dry hair, and coat the hair to make it appear and feel plumper—resulting in more fullness and body.

Braids, Braids, Braids!


Everyone loves braids! Whether it's a single, simple plait down the back or a complicated up-do, braids are a go-to for stylists. They can be worn for everything from a casual outing to the most elegant event. But, did you know, it's not just a recent trend. Women (and men) have been braiding their hair for more than 30,000 years!
The oldest known hair braiding is a figurine of a female from the Paleolithic era estimated to have been made between about 28,000 and 25,000 BC.

BEAUTY SCIENCE: Sulfates

Sulfates make the lather. They also make the water wet. You don’t need the bubbles, but the more wet your water is, the cleaner your hair will be. If you look at the ingredients list on the shampoo, sulfates will be listed as:
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or SLS; Sodium Laureth Sulfate or SLES;
  • Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate; Sodium Myreth Sulfate; TEA Laureth Sulfate.
There is no current scientific evidence of any carcinogenic effects from sulfates. There is some evidence they may play a role in hormonal imbalances, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Sulfates may cause irritation for those with sensitive skin or skin conditions such as eczema or dandruff. They may also be lurking in your conditioner, body wash and even toothpaste.

Why Just Style when you can Re-Style?!

Refresh Without the Hassle, Simply use Dry Shampoo!

Seriously, easy peasy lemon squeezy! Many of us know that washing with shampoo and using heat to style our hair daily can be extremely harsh, not to mention time-consuming. Dry shampoo covers both bases. You can go days between washing and even use that extra time to pick up your favorite morning beverage on the way to work; it's a win-win! Once you start using a dry shampoo you can expect to enjoy other benefits too. It absorbs any and all grease/oils, eliminating sweat and odor and will have your locks smelling fantastic. You'll also notice that dry shampoo adds volume to your roots, refreshing your entire style! Dry shampoo is the handiest tool you could have in your beauty bag, especially when traveling, hospitalized, or away from home for an extended amount of time. Many hotel showers contain hard water buildup. Using dry shampoo to cleanse your hair without water is ideal for many different situations, especially if you're unable to bathe. So, don't forget to pack your dry shampoo for upcoming summer camping trips!
