Learn how to use flat iron the best way! April 10 2017
Without care, the appliance may severely damage the strands.
Wearing a full, smooth, healthy hair is part of many women's wishes. It is not by chance that the techniques of smoothing multiply year after year. There are a multitude of treatments, formulas and even equipment to make the dream come true. Between complex and time-consuming processes of the traditional brush, the plaque, also known as plank or piastra, is pleasing because it is accessible and, mainly, because it has fast results. However, the use of the device requires extra care with the wires, which can easily be lifeless and dehydrated. See tips by the hairdresser Amanda Dias to use the iron without damaging the health of your hair.
To use the chapel you need to face a series of steps. It is recommended to do a good wash in the hair, to dry carefully with the towel (without rubbing it to not open the cuticles of the wires), to use a dryer and then to adopt the device.
Overuse of the hair iron dehydrates the hair. Even devices that promise to moisturize can cause havoc. Like the most common models, they remove moisture from the hair, that is, they do just the opposite of the basic principle of hydration, which is to bring water to the wire. Therefore, to escape catastrophic consequences, the ideal is to abuse thermoactivated protectors and conditioners without rinsing. The products create a layer of protection between the heating of the plank and the wire.
The best models
There are so many options in the market that it is difficult to know which model to buy to use at home. The ceramic tile takes advantage of the competitor's titanium because the board's temperature is distributed throughout the surface of the metal plate in a stable manner. This means that the wires are more protected from the heat oscillations during the procedure, different from that of titanium.
Another positive aspect of the ceramic model is that it optimizes its time, since there is no need to pass it several times in the same wick to smooth. However, be careful if you opt for appliances like this: it provides more heat and thereby opens the way for burning the wires.
As for the thickness of the board, the ideal is to stay in the middle and bet on a medium plaque, which contemplates the best qualities of the finite and the broadest. It allows the smoothing of more wires and also makes the process more agile.
Step by step
- Wash your hair thoroughly and rinse carefully to prevent any residues of shampoo and persulfator from getting into the hair.
- Remove moisture from the hair with a towel. Care should be taken even when the flat iron is suitable for use on wet wires.
- Use a thermal protector in the wires to prevent them from suffering irreparable damages in contact with the heat of the board
- Check the temperature of the iron. Experts recommend that it should not exceed 180 degrees.
- Divide the hair into strands two to three fingers in diameter and pass the appliance from the root tips, beginning at the nape of the neck. Be careful with the movements: never leave the board standing in point for long.
Black Hair: keep yours at the best way! January 09 2017
Find out why black is a democratic tone and check out the best tips to get away from the opaque appearance of the yarns
When someone announces their desire to color their hair in black, it is common to hear the following warning from someone: you will detonate your hair. Although the fame of black ink is not one of the friendliest, the story that black coloring by itself ruins the wires is just myth. "Because it does not contain or contain a very small concentration, the agent that opens the cuticles (usually ammonia), the dark dye will lessen the wire," says Dr. Juliana Spektor, a dermatologist specialized in hair therapy at Clinica Helena Costa, in Rio de Janeiro.
In addition, the dermatologist ensures that dark tones are simpler to care for. "Dark hair, from brown to black, dyed or natural, is usually easier to maintain color and shine than blond or redhead," says Juliana.
Unlike some colors and painting techniques that are remembered and forgotten according to the fashion of the time, the black hairs are constant presence in the world of beauty. Since Cleopatra's famous and desired hair, many other personalities have used black wires throughout the ages.
The list of celebrities who have exhibited black hair is long: Angelina Jolie, Jessie J, Audrey Tautou, Olivia Munn, Lana Del Rey, Rihanna. The tone has already been adopted by celebrities known for their modern style, such as Vanessa Hudgens and Katy Perry; But it is also the choice of Dita Von Teese, adept of a more retro look. In Brazil, actresses like Thaila Ayala and Isis Valverde already bet on the look
Who can have black hair?
If celebrities evidence that black hair can match well with any style and personality, doubts about skin tones and age are frequent.
Being a dark tone, black tends to create a heavier look, which is why it is mainly meant for younger people. Also, those with very dark circles under the eyes may prefer to escape the color, since dark hair can highlight them even more.
As for skin tone, black is democratic: it looks good on both lighter and darker skins. "According to the visagism, brown and black skins combine with black hair", says Daniele Nascimento, Embelleze technique. While dark and black support the tone more naturally, the whiter ones create a more dramatic look. "But remember: the ideal color is the one that makes you happy!", Completes Daniele.
Black Hair Care
Cares must begin before the application of the dye. After all, sensitized wires may not absorb the product. When choosing the coloration, prefer those that have vegetable oils in the composition, as these moisturize more and dry less hair.
After the dyed hair, the biggest challenge is to keep them moisturized, with the color alive and without losing the shine. Habits such as direct exposure to the sun and the use of dryer, flat iron and babyliss without thermal protection can cause the color to fade and the wires to assume an opaque appearance and reddish background. To avoid this effect, the use of thermal protective products and capillary sunscreen are essential.
Some procedures should also begin to be part of the routine to keep the hair healthy and shiny black. Juliana Spektor and Daniele Nascimento recommend the weekly hydration of the threads. The cauterization and the bath of brilliance have a deeper action and can be repeated monthly.
As for the products - shampoos, conditioners and finishers - give preference to those for dyed hair, which help maintain color and shine. If the color's appearance is not pleasing and it is not yet time to tweak the root, the best option is to use a toner.
Recommended products for black hair
Choosing products suitable for dyed hair, dark creams and protectors for high temperatures is essential to keep the wires beautiful. Check out the gallery for these and other products for black hair.

5 habits that detonate black hair
In addition to the care already suggested, check also some habits that should be excluded from your hair routine so that your wires are always beautiful:
- Overexposure to the sun
Excessive exposure to ultraviolet rays is largely responsible for the effect of faded color and reddish reflections. On the beach, swimming pool or any other occasion where you will have to face the sun, bet on the use of capillary hat and sunscreen.
- Dish, dryer and babyliss
Exposing the hair to high temperatures will also damage the wires, leaving them dry and brittle. Before using hair dryer, flat iron or babyliss, do not dispense with the use of a thermal protection product, which has the function of sealing the wires and forming a protective film.
- Use the wrong amount of ink
When coloring, it is essential to observe the quantity of product indicated by the manufacturer. "When the ideal amount is not used, there are risks of getting stained hair," says Daniele Nascimento.
- Use inappropriate products
Choose shampoos, conditioners and finishers suitable for dark or dyed hair. The use of unsuitable products may end up drying and fading the wires.
- Wash with hot water
The tip of the dermatologist Juliana Spektor is to avoid hot water when washing your hair. "In the bath, prefer the warm water and, if possible, in the final rinse use cold water, which helps to seal the cuticles of the wires giving a greater brightness," he advises.
See how Low poo techniques can be awesome for you! December 26 2016
Capillary cleansing techniques use shampoos with mild sulfates or without this substance, bringing hydration and health to all types of hair
Lorraine never understood that the work of fate made her, of all seven brothers, the one chosen to have curly hair while the others ran with the thin strands around the house. At her friends' pajamas, she would go to sleep with hair rollers and once asked her mother for a wig of smooth hair and a straw skirt to pretend she was a Polynesian dancer. It is hardly surprising to say that when Lorraine grew up she became a hairdresser.
The trajectory of Lorraine Massey, creator of the exclusive brand for curly hair Deva Curl and creator of the concepts No Poo and Low Poo, began with this relationship of love and hate with his hair; You had to get your head up before you tried to straighten your hair. Upon hearing from an applicant that her hair was "looking like a baboon's back," she stopped. That was the last straw that wetted the last brush on his head.
After opening a specialized salon and writing a book on the subject, Curly Girl: the Handbook ", set up with her partner Denis da Silva (yes, Brazilian), the line of Products in Poo and Low Poo, that make use of the technique that we are going to explain now.
Smooth hairs are easy to distribute the natural oil of the scalp to the tips, so they do not dry much or have the famous frizz of curly hair curly. The spiral or ring shape of these hairs creates a greater distance for the oil to travel until reaching the tip, and the scalp, due to genetics, produces less oil. The cosmetic industry usually uses a highly cleansing agent, called aggressive sulfate (like sodium lauryl sulfate), because at the time of washing the hair, for most people, enough foam is synonymous with cleaning. In fact, they cleanse the impurities of everyday life, however, they also take away this natural protection, which can have two consequences: for those who already have the guaranteed oiliness, the body understands it as "missing" and becomes Produce even more (the so-called rebound effect); And for those who lack it, as individuals with curly hair, the consequence is an out-of-normal dryness.
But then it's not just a conditioner and it's all right?
It would even look if the creams used had no oil derivatives. These petrolatums are cheap raw material for the products and apparently give the hair its luster and silkiness, but since they are artificial, they cover the yarn with an impermeable film. As the wire is covered, no substance that treats the hair can penetrate the internal microscopic layers that constitute it, and the dryness that the sulfate causes is not repaired.
In Poo and Low Poo are techniques that do not use aggressive sulfates, only milder sulfates and other cleansing agents that remove the impurities, but do not affect the good, nutrient-rich and natural scalp. Another basic premise of the technique is that it avoids the use of petrolates present in creams and conditioners, leaving the cord free for vital agents to act deeply, such as ceramides, keratin, moisturizers, among others, giving a shine that comes from the health of the locks . All hair types have positive treatment results - oily ones (and also those with dandruff) interrupt the rebound effect of the aggressive shampoo, and the dry ones conserve the hydration that was stopped.
The nomenclature "poo" comes from "shampoo". "No" means "no" and "low" means "little". Translating, the meaning would be something like "no shampoo" and "little shampoo". Here in Brazil, the names refer to the low amount of detergent used, however, in other parts of the world, the method means a routine of no or little shampoo, literally.
If you choose to join No Poo, you will not use pure shampoo in the wash (The low poo does), or water-insoluble silicones. What do you mean, never wash your head again? Do not, on the contrary, seek to preserve the lightness of the wires. One of the main cleansing agents of the No Poo method is called Coco-Amidopropyl Betaine (present in some shampoos, but can be purchased separately as "Beta-Amphoteric"), as well as sodium bicarbonate and lemon. As they do not use silicones that impregnate in the wire, only those that leave with water, there is not excessive accumulation or dirt. So, instead of shampoo, a light makeup conditioner with a small proportion of shampoo or amphoteric (a surfactant) mentioned above is used in the washes to clean and foam. The name of this process is co-wash, from English conditioner washing or "conditioning washing", which cleans and moisturizes at the same time. There is also the option of not using the amphoteric: the conditioner itself may have cleaning agents such as mint, mint or cinnamon. These ingredients can be added manually to the product bottle.
Okay, so how do you put one of these techniques into practice?
First, remember the terms repeated here: sulphates and petrolatums. It is necessary to read the labels of the products and not to use these substances. If you intend to continue with the treatment, know that it is very likely that your hair has petrol in the wires, so it is necessary to wash one last time with aggressive sulphate shampoo, because it is the only one able to clean this compound, then to use of the products allowed.
The complete list with the list of all the relevant compounds, compiled thanks to technical people dedicated to disseminating this knowledge for the benefit of as many people as possible, can be found here.
Do not be surprised if, at the beginning, the appearance of your hair worsens, this is the real condition in which it was, but that the silicone disguised with that impermeable luster, however, with the right care, it will renew itself.
And now, we will give you the best options of low poo shampoos and conditioners:
I hope you get the best of your hair! =)
Your Conditioner Guide: see the best Types and more! December 19 2016
Conditioner is basic and everyone has it at home. But there are different types. Learn how to use each of them and keep the threads healthy and shiny.
Conditioner is basic item in every woman's bathroom. And that's why knowing the functions of the product is essential to win beautiful wires! Using the conditioner in the wrong way, even though it sounds silly, can make the wires heavy and dull. On the other hand, leaving the product there may even contribute to the color fading of colored wires, you know? Discover the functions of the product and make it a strong ally of your hair.
Function of the conditioner
To understand the function of the conditioner, it is first necessary to know that the shampoo acts by opening the cuticles of the yarn to remove excess particles of dirt and grease. "The conditioner is a product whose function is to return to the scalp some of the oil that was taken by the shampoo," explains the tricerologist Valcinir Bedin. "But that does not mean it's always necessary, especially when it comes to oily hair."
The conditioner is also responsible for closing the cuticles (outermost layer) of the threads that were opened during the wash. When the cuticles of the hair are aligned, the wires become soft and easier to comb. So if you have the chemicals, such as tincture or progressive, it is essential to use the conditioner after washing to prevent the chemical from flowing down the drain. "The ideal is that if you choose shampoo and conditioner on the same line because they were designed to work together," explains the tricologist. Noted?
Types of conditioner
If you notice the shelves in the supermarket, you will realize that there are a huge variety of types of conditioners: some promise maximum hydration, others are suitable for colored threads. Understand how each of them acts on your wires:
Moisturizers: Most conditioners are moisturizing. This means they return the oil and nutrients withdrawn by the shampoo during the wash. Products with oil in the formula act directly to recover this oiliness and are indicated for dry and dull wires. Moisturizing conditioners can be used by all types of hair.
Antioxidants: Are the conditioners indicated for yarns with chemistry, such as stains and progressive. This type of product avoids the formation of free radicals, molecules formed by external agents, such as pollution and heat (enters this equation sun, flat and dryer), which unbalance the functioning of the body. Free radicals cause oxidation of dye pigments and color fading and antioxidant conditioners combat the problem.
Cleanliness: The novelty, which for the moment can only be found in gringo lands, has not yet arrived in Brazil. It is a 2 in 1 product: it is shampoo and conditioner at the same time. Without sulfate (one of the most common detergent types in shampoos) and with a formula consisting of 1/4 cleansing agents and 3/4 hydration, the product moisturizes and cleans the wets without foaming. For this reason, it is indicated for hair curly and curly, naturally drier.
How to use the conditioner correctly
Washing the wires correctly is the basic criterion for having beautiful wires. To do this, you must pay attention to the temperature of the water, which must be cold or warm so you do not open the cuticles too much. The conditioner should be applied only on length and tips, never at the root - this can cause dandruff! Ah, when rinsing, completely remove the product from the wires. Leaving a little product on the wires for easy brushing can leave the wires heavy and dull. In this case, you may prefer to use a leave-in after bathing.
The conditioner returns the hydration that the shampoo removes. This type of product has specifics for each type of hair and it is recommended to use it only in the extension of the hair.
If your hair is damaged, the tip is to use the Silk Instant Restore Conditioner, which restores the wires from the inside out. If it is the case of replenishing the nutrients that hair loses with age, you can use the INOAR BOMBAR Hair Hydrating Kit.
Or even want to deeply purify the hair, the G HAIR THERAPY PROGRESS MASK has antioxidant properties that leave your hair looking dazzling and healthy.
