Hair Types

Posted by Tiffany Mae on


Hair types By Tiffany Mae   Straight:   The follicle of straight hair is perfectly round as opposed to curly hair’s follicle being oval shaped.  This causes the hair to air dry and fall straight.   Pros: Brushing your hair is enough to make it look ‘done’ Consistent Looks neat and tidy Cons: Hard to achieve the ‘lived in’ messy Pinterest hair Roots growing in looks more obvious Pony tail dents   Wavy: Pros: Your hair can be manipulated to be wavy and also smoothed out fairly easy.

What does "Texture" mean?

Posted by Tiffany Mae on


When a hairstylist refers to the 'texture' of your hair they are talking about specific variables.   First is the wave pattern of your hair, wether you have one or not, think straight, wavy, curly or coils.  Now remember, hair is not one size fits all!  Your hair may be straight but still have texture to it.   Second, the texture of your hair can also refer to the words fine, medium and coarse.  Fine hair tends to be smoother in texture and a single strand of hair is small in diameter.  This is not to be confused with how many hairs you have on your head, that is density.   Coarse refers to the diameter of a single strand being larger...

Co washing?

Posted by Tiffany Mae on


Co washing is using conditioner to wash your hair instead of shampoo. Co washing is generally for culy hair or super wavy textured hair.  The purpose would be to avoid drying out and seperating the hairs.  Dry, seperated hairs are what we call frizz.   Use a Cowash also known as cleansing conditioner: if you work out and need to smell good, rinse sweat and dirt but dont need to strip hair of oils.  If you have curly or very wavy hair that needs to be soaked to be restyled. Use Cowash as you would shampoo, by soaking your hair.  Apply Cowash to the scalp and manipulate as you would shampoo.  Don’t expect to see lather with this stuff, enjoy the weight...

Are Sulfates Bad?

Posted by Tiffany Mae on


sul·fate  /ˈsəlfāt/ noun  Sulfates are chemicals used as detergent.  They can be found in toothpaste, cleaning products, soap, basically anything that foams.  Sulfates, most commonly seen on lables as SLS have gotten a bad rep in the past few years.     Did you know we have been using sulfates since they were introduced in 1930?! The reason for the bad rep is that they can sometimes be too effecient at their job, by stripping oil and leaving skin and hair dry and thirsty.  That being said, if you have skin sensitivities and are prone to itchiness and redness, stearing clear of SLS for the most part is advised for you.   The FDA, EU and Health Canda have all...

What are Parabens?

Posted by Tiffany Mae on


par·a·ben /ˈparəben/ noun- Any of a group of compounds used as preservatives in pharmaceutical and cosmetic products and in the food industry. I was under the impression Sulfates and Parabens were in the same family, I was wrong!  Parabens have been used since the 1920s to preserve hair and skin products, and even in beverages and snacks. To avoid fungal growth and mold in ingredients as they travel from creation through factory and onto our shelves, some sort of preservative is necessary. The problem with parabens is that they have been found to disrupt hormone and endocrine systems.  These can effect the production of hormones in the male and female body.  Since they mimic estrogen in the body and can effect fertility, reproductive development...
