Have you ever been totally and completely satisfied with your hair? Probably not, which is totally normal – although if you have, tell us your best-kept hair secrets in the comments! —our hair goes through major changes throughout our lifetime. Things like hormones, stress levels, environmental pollutants, and even your diet all have a role in determining your hair’s strength, resilience, texture and more! Although, you probably already knew that. But, did you know that you can actually contribute to your hair’s overall quality, including its strength and texture, while you sleep? Yes, we’re serious. No, this is not a drill.

That’s right, we’ve done some digging and found a few tricks that you can add to your nighttime routine which will strengthen your hair while you catch those zzz’s. This article is dedicated to all Princess Aurora, who once wished that they too could had the powers of Sleeping Beauty; by following these tips, you too can be a sleeping beauty.

Quality Sheets are Key
Typical pillow cases are manufactured with cotton or some other cotton-poly mix. The reason for this is that it cuts down on costs and it allows for all kinds of patterns to be printed on the sheets. The one drawback to this is that cotton or cotton-poly mix pillowcases create static and cause breakage with every toss and turn. Avoid all this by switching to silk or satin pillowcases! Another bonus is that silk and satin pillowcases are optimal for those with aging or sensitive skin!

Brush it Out
A lot of women only brush their hair post-shower with the intention of detangling their locks prior to styling. However, very few women enlist in the help of their brush before hitting the sack. Believe it or not, Marcia Brady had the right idea. Brushing your hair before bed is super beneficial because it ensures the distribution of natural oils to the mid and lower shafts of your hair. However, there can be too much of a good thing, as over-brushing can cause more harm than good. With that in mind, you can get the job done with ten-to-fifteen strokes using a boar bristle brush.

Conditioner is a Must
Sure you know the importance of lathering on a conditioner after rinsing out your shampoo, but did you know that leave-in conditioners are just as important and beneficial as rinse-out conditioners? Even if you use a leave-in conditioner on damp hair before styling, you should consider reapplying a leave-in treatment before hitting the sack. As you go about your day, your hair is exposed to all sorts of environmental factors including wind, sun, and pollutants. All these things reap havoc on your hair and cause your stands to feel less nourished by the end of the day. Take control of the situation by applying an overnight treatment or extra nourishing leave-in; just make sure that you re-dampen your hair before applying, that way all the good ingredients can do their job and soak into the cuticle.

Experimenting With Dip-Dyed Hair

Dip-dye and ombre colored hair have been quite popular for a few years now. The looks can be seen in both hi-fashion and street-style, and now you’re ready to give the trend a try too. You may be wondering what the difference is between dip-dyed and ombre colored hair; some of you might not have even known that there was a difference. Well, ladies, there is indeed a difference between dip-died and ombre hair! The easiest way to differentiate between the two is recognizing that ombre-colored-anything is the gradual process of once color smoothly blending into another. So when you look at ombre hair, you will notice that the chemically colored ends of the hair get gradually get lighter and lighter along the strands. Dip-dye, on the other hand, offers more of a solid transition from one color to the next – almost like a color block.

If you’re interested in dip-dyed hair, but aren’t ready to call your stylist and take the plunge at the salon that’s totally understandable. This bold look can be…well, bold. Which is why we’ve put together this step by step tutorial for you to experiment with dip-dyed hair at home. In doing so you should be able to get a good idea of how you feel about the look and if you think it’s something you’d want to consider more permanently.

  1. Before you go coloring your hair all shades of the rainbow, take the time to get inspired and figure out the color that you want. Even though this tutorial is only going to give you temporary color, it’s still going to stay put for a few weeks, so you’ll want to make sure that it’s a color you’ll be happy with.
  2. Once you’ve settled on a color, you’ll need to purchase a product that is labeled as “semi-permeate.” This will ensure that the color doesn’t last for months.
  3. In addition to the coloring product, those with darker hair may need to purchase a  lightening or bleaching product. The reason being that light colored tips is the key to achieving the actual color that you want; bleaching out the dark color from your hair allows the colored dye to set.
  4. When preparing to dip-dye, you should purchase more color than you think you need. It may seem silly, but the last thing you want to do is run out of color before you’ve completed coloring your hair. You should also purchase a pair of gloves, to avoid skin irritation and some sort of plastic cover-all for your counters.
  5. Be sure that you’re wearing an old shirt that you wouldn’t mind throwing out. Additionally, wrap your neck with an equally old towel to protect your skin from stain and irritation.
  6. Brush or comb hair that it already completely dry and set up all your products in front of you on the countertop. It’s easiest to do this in the bathroom that way you have a mirror right where you need it.
  7. Section by section, bleach the hair where you want the finished color to be. Because every bleaching product is different, it’s best that you follow the instructions for the product that you purchased.
  8. After you’ve rinsed out the bleach, repeat the same process with the color, directly on top of the bleached hair. You can either use a brush and paint it on, or you can literally dip each section of hair into the dye bowl and use your fingers to spread the color.
  9. After you’ve applied the color to each section wrap it in foil. This will help the product cure faster. Again, to ensure the best possible results from the product you purchased, follow the instructions on how long to let the product sit on the hair.
  10. Once the product has had enough time to color your locks, remove the foil wrappings and rinse the product out of your hair until the water runs clear. After the product is rinsed out wash your entire head of hair with conditioner only. Keep in mind that the more frequently that you wash your hair, the sooner the color will fade.

Keeping Your Extensions Under Wraps

Whether you have long locks or short trimmed tresses, chances are you’ve gotten yourself a set of hair extensions at one point, or at the very least, you’ve considered doing so. If you fall in the latter group, it’s likely due to the fear of how to style them. Those of you who’ve purchased extensions can probably confirm that the styling-extensions fear is very real. While we’re being honest, it’s fair to give credit where credits due and say that extensions are unarguably the ultimate hair accessory. They can be used for just about everything; whether you need to add instant volume to your otherwise flat hair, want to have temporary long locks, or even just want to change up your look within a matter of minutes! Not to mention, a good set of extensions can make all of this possible while still looking like it’s your own, natural hair! Because we totally understand the desire to flaunt extensions, we’ve asked the pros for the top three tips to ensure effortless extension styling. Check it out!

Limit The Length
There’s no denying that we’ve all wished for Princess Rapunzel length hair at one point or another, but the fact of the matter is that extra-long extensions are just unrealistic (not to mention they look super unnatural. The trick is to pick the length of your extensions based on the length of your natural hair. If your hair is at or around shoulder length, then you should go for a set of extensions that’s about 16-18 inches long. If your hair is a bit longer, perhaps falling somewhere in between your upper and mid, then you can opt for extensions that are around 20-24 inches long. Another thing that many people don’t consider is matching the thickness of the extensions to your natural hair’s texture. This means that ladies with fine or thin hair would want to go for a set that’s around 160-180 grams. Those with normal or medium hair would do best with a 180-200 gram set, and those with thick hair could go for a 220 gram set.

Cut and Camouflage
When you go to the nail salon and have a set of acrylic or gel nails put on, the nail-tech files and shapes them to match and enhance the shape of your natural nail. It’s important to keep this same idea in mind when you get a new set of extensions; almost all extensions come standard with crisp, blunt ends. Most honestly, this will be very noticeable. What you can do is make an appointment for a dry trim with your stylist. Be sure that you wear your extensions to the appointment and then explain that you want your extensions to be trimmed up so that they blend with your natural locks.

Wash Up
If you haven’t already noticed, brand new extensions have a high-gloss finish. Granted, everyone wants silky, shiny hair, but this takes it to the Barbie-Doll level of shine. Luckily, there’s an easy fix to ensure the clip ins have a natural looking finish. All you need to do is give them a good wash. The best way to go about doing so is with a gentle, moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, then let them air dry overnight. By doing so you will rid the glossy look and have natural looking extensions!

Simple Updos You Can Style at Home

One of the best things about social media today is the encouragement of sharing and using all kinds of DIY tips; from baking to cleaning, makeup to hair, the internet has an indefinite amount of tips and trick. Of course, this is all fine and dandy, even more exciting when you find a new hack and it actually works! However, we’ve all experienced the anticipation in the promise that a specific hack will work, only to be let down. We noticed that a particularly large amount of hack-let-downs are owed to the disappointment of DIY updos. The problem isn’t necessarily in the updo itself, rather, it’s the amount of skill required to create the updo – which many people confirm they don’t have after a few attempts – that can drive a DIYer crazy. Fortunately, we understand that the majority of you aren’t hair stylists. Although we also understand that you also want to the independence of creating an elegant updo without having to make an appointment at the salon. For this reason, we have selected some simple, yet stunning updos that you can easily style at home.

Disclaimer: It is important to keep in mind, before starting any hairstyle, to have an open and accepting mind of your final ‘do. Seldom do hairstyles turn out exactly as they are shown in pictures (even when professional stylists attempt them), which is why it’s important to find the beauty in your work and any imperfection. Oh, and one more thing: don’t wash your hair… styling clean hair can be a major pain! Whether you skip the shampoo or add a good amount of product to your hair, it’ll be much easier than attempting to style squeaky clean stands.

Flirty twisted updo
Separate your hair into two even sections. Select a small section by your temple and begin to twist it away from your face. Once you’ve twisted a few inches, grab another small section from the hair below it and marry the two by twisting them together. Continue the process until the entire side of your hair is twisted, at which point you should keep twisting until the hair starts to coil and pull itself into the scalp. Secure the twist with a few hair pins, then repeat the process on the other side.

French twist
For this ‘do, it’s important to begin with a volumizing product. Then you’ll want to separate your hair into a horizontal part, which is basically like creating a half-ponytail, but instead of using your thumbs to separate your hair, you’re going to use a comb to create a part that goes straight across from one ear to another. For extra volume, tease this top section, then twist it just a few times and secure the “tail” against your head. Gather together all the hair of the bottom section, starting at the nape of the neck, twist all the hair upwards. Once it’s twisted all the way up you can start to incorporate the ends of top section with the twisted section. Finally, tuck the ends of the hair underneath itself, be sure to secure it with hair pins and some strong hold spray.

Chic Chignon
Start with a low side part that is parallel to your eyebrow. Bring all your to whichever side of your head is opposite of your part and create a low side ponytail. Divide the pony in half, then create a rope braid. To do this you’ll want to twist both sections in the same direction, once their twisted to the bottom twist them over each other in the opposite direction. Continue twisting in the opposite direction until you’ve reached the bottom, and secure the rope braid with a small clear elastic. Now wrap the rope braid around itself, similar to the way a cinnamon is wrapped. Slip in a few bobby pins to hold everything in place and finish with some hair spray!

Edibles That Strengthen Your Hair

It’s no secret that the majority of women damage and slowly destroys their hair on a regular basis. Everyday styling measures, including straightening, curling, and even blow-drying all cause havoc on the hair, and still many women wonder why their hair isn’t longer, thicker, or stronger. Apologies to those who feel that they’re oblivious bubble has just been popped, but C’mon! Hair, just like skin, can only take so much heat and chemical manipulation before it loses its luster. It can be easy to forget to apply a heat protectant when short on time – in fact, some people choose to bypass this curtail product with no idea of the damage they’re causing their locks. Fortunately, science and beauty experts paired up and found a variety of foods which straighten the hair from the inside out. Please keep in mind the information provided below should not be used in place of, but rather in conjunction with proper external heat repair and protection measures, which include, but are not limited to heat protection, leave in conditioner. Without further ado, read on to learn more about the foods to eat for healthy, resilient hair.

Avocado
This pitted island fruit is packed with all kinds of healthy vitamins, a major one being vitamin E. Not only can a mashed avocado be applied as an effective external treatment, but it will also fortify the hair by ramping up the moisture.

Brown rice
Many individuals have made the switch from white, bleached carbs to whole wheat versions, but don’t stop with bread and pasta! Switching from white rice to brown rice has been found to increase hair’s strength and durability. This is due to the high amounts of zinc within the composition of brown rice.

carrots

Carrots
These crunchy sticks aren’t only a great snack for eye and skin health, they are also a hair healthy snack! Full of vitamin A, munching on carrots will have a direct effect on the hair by building up the hair follicle to strengthen every strand.

Oils
Over the years oils have gotten a pretty bad rap. There isn’t anything wrong with consuming oils as long as they are considered healthy sources, such as omega 3’s and fatty acids. In fact, omega 3’s and fatty acids are a triple threat to the hair; the properties of oils work to hydrate, thicken, and strengthen hair. Foods that have particularly high levels of these good oils include salmon, broccoli, flaxseed, and spinach.

Red meat
Believe it or not, red meat can actually work wonders to revive hair. Loaded with a range of vitamins and nutrients, the red meat had been found to make hair stronger, as well as help it maintain a sleek and shiny luster. Keep in mind that over-consumption of beef has been found to have a fair amount of negative effects on the body. To get the most out of the meat and keep a healthy balance, try to limit consumption to once or twice per week.

Haircuts That Stand Up To Humidity

Beach season may be nearing its end, but the humid and muggy days are far from over. If you’re and early raiser you know that early fall mornings are for dew filled grass, foggy windshields, and humidity-ridden hair. Depending where you live in the U.S., the hair troubles don’t stop when the humid mornings are over. When the dew on the grass turns to frost, many women are fighting with static-y tresses. If you feel like you just can’t catch a break, know that you’re not alone. Instead of letting the weather changes get the best of you, opt for a new style. Below you’ll see a selection of haircuts that stand up to humidity, decide which one works best for you and call the salon to make an appointment!

Long Bob/Lob
Oh yes, this look is sticking around, in fact, it’s one of the hottest styles at the moment. The lob is not only stylish, but it’s also ideal for a variety of hair types. Those who have limp and lifeless hair will experience an instant volume boost from the sassy cut. When adding long layers to the look the lob is almost un-phased by heat and humidity. The reason for this is because the layers provide the hair with additional texture, which means that the natural movement of the strands still appear relaxed when humidity happens.

Girl outdoors layered hair

Lavish Locks of Layers
At first thought, long hair may seem like the least humid-friendly style around, but it’s actually one of the most clever ways to beat the heat. Whether you have curly tresses or a thick wavy mane, long layers and angles are the way to go. The science is long hair weighs more than short hair. When the humid weather hits, curls and waves have a natural tendency to tighten and coil, but if your hair is long, it will resist the urge to tighten due to the weight pulling it down. Plus, the layers and angles add movement so that if there is some tightening, it looks more like intentional texture.

Perfect Pixie
Whether you prefer a more delicate pixie (such as Emma Watson’s) or a rock star chop (much like Riri’s) a short pixie cut is one of the most magical ways to prevent humidity from taking over your hair. Have your stylist snip your strands so that you have a short and sweet cut that is particularly asymmetrical. being sure to have longer strands at the top. Not only is this ‘do low maintenance but you’ll also have less worry on humid days. The reason being longer pieces on the top section of your head will curl downward, rather than frizz up.

There you have it! Three totally different looks with the same purpose: to stand up to humidity. However, it’s totally understandable if you aren’t willing to chop your locks just because mother nature is having a bad day. If this is the case, remember to put use to your basics: the classic French braid; the sassy and creative head wrap; the perfect messy bun.

Planning The First Big Girl Haircut

Little girl getting her first haircut.

For the first few years, you’ve managed to trim your baby girl’s hair, but that’s just the thing: it’s not baby hair anymore. After all, your big girl is growing up, and it’s probably time for her first big girl haircut. While you might be excited about introducing your little lady to the salon which brings you endless amounts of joy, chances are she isn’t too enthusiastic. Surely you’ve been in a salon at one point when a child sat in a chair identical to yours, adorned with a cape that matched yours, and you felt your heart break when the child started to cry. At this point a million things were probably running through your head; maybe you considered what you would do if you were in that mom’s shoes, and you probably wondered what was so frightening. Truth be told, there are a million things that could terrify a child at their first big girl haircut – when’s the last time you were cool, calm, and collected when someone you didn’t know came walking towards your head with a big, sharp pair of scissors? In addition to the previously described situation, children’s brains aren’t fully developed, so seeing people sitting in chairs with the heads floating can be intimidating. Not to mention, those bright salon lights can stress anyone out.

Thinking about things from a child’s point of view, their fear can seem pretty rational, huh? However, this doesn’t mean you should take an oath to cut your child’s hair on the kitchen counter for the rest of your days. Instead, read the tips below to plan and prepare for the first big girl haircut!

Let Them Get Comfortable
You wouldn’t leave your little girl at a childcare center without visiting the location with her first, right? Although you’re not going to be leaving her in the stylist’s chair, you still want her to feel comfortable in the new and different environment. Bring her to the salon with you any chance you get. Whether you’re going for a cut and color, wash and blow dry, or just to pick up the products you’ve run low on, bring her in with you.

Don’t Make The Appointment On Time
There’s a saying in the fashion industry that goes “when you arrive on time you’re already late.” Some people are very punctual, but if you aren’t one of them, do all that you can to arrive at your daughter’s appointment 15 to 20 minutes early. This will give them time to look around and take everything in. Allow her to use the big girl’s room while you wait. Have a small snack and some chilled water for her to munch on – this will give her the impression that she’s at a place that’s safe enough to eat in, so she doesn’t need to be fearful.

Bring A Change Of Clothes
Don’t force your child to sport a cape, but don’t worry about them getting covered in hair either. Instead, bring a change of clothes. This way she can slip into a comfy hairless outfit post-cut. You could even offer for her to pick out her favorite outfit. Explain that she’s going to the salon to get pampered and that, if she’d like to, she can pick out a special outfit to wear to the salon.

Avoid Sleeping With These Hair Accessories

Women with beautiful hair looking in mirror

If you’ve never found yourself so annoyed by your hair in the middle of the night that you’d contemplated chopping it all off… right then and there, then please, tell us your secret. Women (and those Thor-like long haired men) have spent countless hours tossing and turning throughout the night out of annoyance of their strands. Chances are you’ve found yourself in this situation at least once or twice before. You use your finger to twist your locks around and around until the pseudo ponytail starts to coil around itself because maybe that will keep it out of your face. Perhaps you’re one of the gals who tries the roots-up method – you know, when you gather your strands together and pull them up above your head so that your hair has its own designated spot on your pillow. Both methods yield mediocre results until you decide to re-adjust and your hair pushes the last patience-button.

We all know how bad it is to sleep with hair accessories, which is exactly why you try to coil or flip your hair out of the way. But sometimes it seems like the only way you’ll get relief, and clock in on your beauty sleep is to find the strongest rubber band in the house and secure those tresses to the top of your head so tight that they’ll be unmoved by morning. Eeek! We can practically hear our strands pleading for mercy at the thought of it!

In honor of strands everywhere, we have put together a list of the best and worst hair accessories to sleep in. However, do understand that sleeping with any type of hair accessory is not ideal and here’s why: the root and hairline are the most sensitive areas of the hair when you pull your strands back into a ponytail, you’re literally doing just that – pulling your hair! Not just for a few moments either, because when your secure your hair with an elastic, you’re applying bungee-chord-like strength to keep it all up and out of your face. After time and time again this tension will damage the hair follicle and strands will begin to shed. Additionally, depending on the type of hair accessory that’s being used, it may be damaging the strand causing it to snap and break.

With that word of caution, we always promote wearing your hair down if possible – after all, you’ve spent months (maybe years?) growing it out for a reason, right?! However, we know that the mid-night shoulder tickles and neck sweat can be terribly annoying.

The Worst Of The Worst:

  • Water: It’s not an accessory per say, but it’s worth mentioning that when hair is wet it is at it’s weakest state, making it vulnerable to damage and breakage from just about any hairband or pillowcase.
  • Rubber-Like Elastic: Tthe more plastic-like the elastic feels, the worse. For some reason, the hair likes to cling to the rubber and it breaks with each and every pull.
  • Sock Bun Or Donut Bun: This popular hair curling technique looks pretty in the morning, but you are basically telling the hair and beauty gods that you want split ends. Just avoid this one altogether.

The Best Of The Best:

  • Oil: Again, it’s not actually an accessory, but it will protect and condition your hair from damage caused by tossing and turning on your pillowcase, as well as snagging from your hair tie.
  • Metal-Free: If you haven’t impulsively bought those bright colored flat fabric elastics that can be found in every checkout line, you’re missing out! Not only are they adorable, but they are much safer and gentler on your strands, ideal for those ponytail-needed nights.
  • Silk And Satin: Again, not totally an accessory, but typical cotton and polyester pillowcases also snip and snag at your strands, even when you leave your hair down. Avoid this by laying your head on a silk or satin pillowcase. Did we mention it’s also a great anti-ager too?
