- Scalp Health Does Not Influence Wire
This, perhaps, is the biggest lie of all. The health of the scalp greatly influences the growth and beauty of the hair. For a flower to grow beautiful and strong, it needs a bed that provides the nutrients needed to make it happen, so you need to take care of the ground where it is. With the hair, it's exactly the same.
- Cut your hair on a full moon day.
The development of strands is linked to the care you have with them and not to the phases of the moon. However, some external factors do alter yarn growth and strength, such as sun exposure and tobacco and alcohol consumption.
- Washing the hair every day causes the hair to fall
The frequency of hair washing varies from hair to hair, after all, the structure of the yarn requires different care. However, brittle hair is not caused by excess water. The only recommendation in these cases is to give preference to warm or cold water and always remove the waste products so that they do not accumulate in the scalp.
- Leave the moisturizer all day helps in the result
This technique does not work and still causes problems on the scalp such as scaling and redness on the skin. Some products exposed to the sun react and still result in irritations.
- Do not dry your hair after bathing causes the root to rot
The wires dry naturally, you do not need to use a dryer or anything like that. However, leaving the scalp muffled in the long run eventually ends up causing the wires to become more brittle. The tip is to wipe them well with a towel different from that used on the body, so you do not run the risk of leaving skin residue accumulated on the head.

Keratin treatments: learn the best way to take care of it October 23 2017
Are you one of those who will not let go of the straightened wires and, every three months at the most, run to the salon to finish the progressive brush? So, it is good to stay alert and take some care to maintain hydration and health of the hair. The procedure, dear to control the wires without having to go through the routine of iron, can cause some damages. Frequent chemistry removes water and nutrients from the hair - and has to be replaced. You may have noticed that, after some progressives, the root tends to get greasier, and the tips even drier.
-The root has a natural oiliness that spreads to the rest of the hair. When the progressive seals the threads, this oiliness can not come down and is concentrated there. So, too, that the tips tend to get drier.
Specialists suggests that about two or three weeks before you do the progressive, you invest in a cauterization to recover and moisturize the wires.
- Cauterization is a deeper hydration that returns nutrients and water, which are removed by chemistry. So when you have been applying the product, your hair will be moisturized and the progressive brush will seal the yarn.
Choose the right shampoo
Specialists recommends using a shampoo that has acidic pH. It works like this: each part of the body has a PH, the wires usually vary between 4.2 and 5.8 - it is acid, according to a scale that goes from 0 to 14 (when it reaches 7, PH becomes neutral and, above that, alkaline).
- The shampoo with acidic pH will keep the cuticle of the hair closed, preventing it from losing moisture and dehydrate.
A hair stylist gives a tip: if you also have dyed yarn, the shampoo for this type of hair works for both cases.
The hydration should be constant, mainly because of the tips, which get even drier than the length. Laine recommends that at least once a week you moisturize with collagen masks, vitamins and minerals.
- This will lessen the dryness of your hair and prevent it from getting hard, without balance and shine. Just wash normally, remove excess water and apply the mask over the entire length, letting act for five to 10 minutes.
Denise adds that in addition to the masks, you can bet on natural products like coconut oils and olive oil to moisturize. Pass before bath and leave to act for some time, then wash normally.
Those who are progressive often know that as the effect goes on, the dryer becomes even more indispensable - and ends up being part of the routine. Laine Calixto warns of the importance of thermoprotectants. The hairstylist explains that the constant use of the dryer without any protection burns the wires, but that, together with the thermoactive ones, can bring benefits
- These products have nutrients that are activated with the heat of the dryer and are another way to hydrate the wires.
After drying the threads, finish with products like leave in or serum, which control the threads and still give way in the resected aspect.
- Bet on products with moisturizing substrates such as argan oil, which is extremely moisturizing and lustrous, in addition to helping renew against chemical damage.

The best tips for you to get your dreams long hair! September 18 2017
Many women feel powerful with their long locks. Is it your case? And the feeling of throwing the hair back and forth? If you can not imagine yourself with the short strands, and do not care if the trend is bob or long bob, do not let go of their longs, this is for you. Come with us!
But to stay with the look in day and parade with the long and clean yarns you have to take some care. No one wants to give up the long cut just because they are not healthy, is not it? The good news is that it does have a hair without suffering. Just learn some beautiful tips.
# 1 Always hydrate the wires
Anyone who already owns a hair knows how difficult it is to keep the length and tip of the hair well moisturized and shiny, right? The dermatologist Fernanda Casagrande explains that our scalp produces a natural hydration, but that it can not get to the tips.
To keep them healthy, it is important a hydration routine that can be done at home. Bet on products that have, in the formula, oils and other nutrients, like the shampoo and conditioner Hydration Source of the Boticario Match line. The products have a formulation with pure coconut oil that goes deep into the hair fiber and moisturizes from root to tip - perfect for daily care!
Another important tip is to moisturize at least once a week - or up to twice a week if the wires are very dry. Bet on quick-to-use and instant-effect masks, such as the Match Hydration Source Capillary Mask. Also based on coconut oil, it should be applied to the logo before the shampoo.
And tip: to potentiate the effect, wrap the head with a plastic cap and a warm towel. After acting for three minutes, wash your hair as normal. The result is light and incredible!
# 2 Watch out for the daily assaults
The longer the hair, the more aggression it suffers - from that over-tight elastic that holds the wicks to frequent dryer use. Stay alert to those moments that sometimes go unnoticed but that can detract from all the care and dedication you have with your wires.
Choose coated elastics, which protect the hair fiber and prevent yarn breakage. Another tip: Wash the wires as soon as you get out of the sea or pool with chlorine, to remove the waste and avoid dryness.
Adept of the dryer - sometimes does not give time to wait all this hair to dry! Or the chap? So never forget to apply a thermal protector before subjecting the wires to heat. In addition to protecting against the damages caused by the dryer and flat iron, the Take Care Well Protective Thermal Protector still reduces the drying time!
# 3 Stay Tuned to Wire Needs
The dermatologist says that it is important to use specific products for each type of hair in order to optimize care. She recalls that the need for an oily coat is not the same as that of a drought, for example. Just as smooth and curly need different nutrition.
If your hair is dry, curly and chemically treated, use products for all of these specificities, alternating with each wash. For example: one day bet on the Take Care of Extraordinary Well Restoration line, and on the next wash in the Take Care of Well Exuberant Clumps line. (I.e.
It is also important to be careful when washing the length and ends. It is best to massage the scalp and let the product run through the locks - wiping them can damage, as well as being unnecessary, you know?
# 4 Lose Fear of Scissors
And nothing of making up excuses not to cut the ends of the hair. Repairing them helps to maintain the length and maintain the quality of the yarn. "It is inevitable that there will be double ends and breaks, no matter how careful you take. Cutting every two or three months is important so that these tips do not open more and more, explains Fernanda.
And if you've ever had that unpleasant experience of asking the hairdresser to take off only the tips and ended up almost with a medium cut, we understand your fear of the scissors! But do not let this stop you from taking care of the wires. So it's always worth finding a reliable professional.
# 5 Beware of combing
If your hair is smooth or wavy, you may prefer to comb them before bathing - they get very sensitive wet, making it easier to break when combing. If you are curly, comb during the bath (after applying the conditioner), to facilitate the unloading. The best way to comb? Always starting at the ends, so they do not embarrass.
And give preference to wide combs or brushes with soft bristles - always remember to comb your hair with care and delicacy, to avoid damaging them.
6 essential care for you to do with your hair before sleeping September 11 2017
Working, studying, taking care of children, dating ... How many tasks fit into the routine of a modern woman? Lots, and, incredibly, we always take the time to fit in a little something else, especially if it's fun to read a book, watch a fun TV series, or get silky, beautiful hair. After all the soft and soft touch within the reach of the hands is a delight and feel beautiful is beyond pleasant. But for this it is not necessary to wake up and waste time with that brush at 6 in the morning. Next, we teach tricks to get out of bed with the strands in order.
Night-care creams: they have the most diverse functions: some repair, while others nourish, moisturize, finalize and even have those who recover opaque wires. The various night-care creams have in common, in addition to being used during sleep, the texture that resembles a gel and helps not to dirty the pillow. Hair stylist Kátia Silvestre, from Espaço K Hair Styling, always recommends using specific products for your hair type. In general, this type of cream does not need to be washed in the morning, that is, just wake up and enjoy the benefits.
Bedtime Hair: First of all, the hair stylist recommends that getting hair to sleep should not become a habit because with friction the hair can break. But if the idea is one day or another to wake up with curly hair, one option is to make a low braid and fasten with a cloth covered elastic, so as not to leave the locks marked. For a more intense wavy, the tip is to pass mousse on the hair and fasten in a low bun with the elastic fabric or staples.
Hydration with vegetable oils: To save time hydration of the hairs, a good option is to make the night hydration with vegetable oils. Because they are lighter than creams, you can use them during sleep without making dirt, but it is worth lining the pillow with a towel. Some options are rosehip oils, almonds and grape seed. Katia explains that the hair needs to be washed in the morning because the hair can be heavy. Those who have fine hair should avoid this care, as the hair can become very oily.
Change the pillowcase: choose a 100% cotton, so the fabric will make less friction in contact with the threads and the result will be more behaving braids and less frizz.
Cap? Grandma's famous time cap was made with wet hair all stretched to one side and, after a few hours, stretched out to the other, securing smooth strands. Today there is no need to go through all this to get straight yarn, but holding straight hair without a fold in a cap made with pantyhose helps to wake up with the hair without marks or 'face of pillow' and smoother.
Always clean and hydrated hair: hair tricks will hardly bring results if it is dirty or dry. 'Hydrated hair will mean beautiful hair the next day,' says Kátia Silvestre. This does not mean that it is necessary to wash and moisturize every day, this frequency depends on each hair, but, on average, it is recommended to wash every other day, and moisturize at least every 15 days.
5 Secrets you need to know before you paint your hair September 04 2017
To ensure that the color comes out in the desired tone, some care must be taken before painting the hair
Having healthy hair, testing the color in advance, taking a break between techniques, following home care and using non-aggressive products are the prerequisites for perfectly colored hair. Below, some experts teach you all the tricks to get you exactly the blonde, brown or redhead you want.
The success of color depends on the health of your wires
This means that if the wires are dry or very porous, they risk not absorbing the right dye and even tarnish. Hence the importance of keeping them always hydrated. "You need to moisturize at least once a week with products enriched with shea butter, argan oil or macadamia to prepare the yarn," says the colorist Yuha Antero, from MG Hair Design in São Paulo . If the hair is very weak and malnourished, invest in restructuration products, which should contain protein and keratin in the formula.
Find the right tone for you
Discover the tone of your skin taking into account the color of your eyes. Blues or greens usually indicate cold skin; brown or darker eyes fall into the category of warm or neutral skin. The hot guy usually makes good partnership, according to Yuha, with copper wires and brown nuances. "The cold skin is highlighted by blond-platinum, brown or reddish-brown. And the neutral looks good with any tone, "adds the expert. Although generic, the trick will help guide your choice. But it is imperative to do a wick test (painting only a small amount) before hammering. "It gives more security in relation to the chosen color, it avoids future regrets and allows to detect possible allergic reactions", explains the hairstylist Julio Crepaldi, of the hall Gallery, in São Paulo.
Paint first, smooth after
The ideal would be to opt for either method, as both are very aggressive. However, since this option is almost impossible, prefer to colorize or make lights before starting for progressive or relaxation. The reason: after going through this type of chemical procedure, the wire takes longer to pick up the color and therefore the time that the bleach or tincture will be in action will be much greater. The result is more battered wounds and therefore more dry. If, however, for any reason, you need to straighten your hair before coloring, the hairstylist Sandro Cassolari advises to replace the ink by toning, which is less harmful.
Attention to dyeing at home
The recommended amount of product must be adhered to and the time taken for the tincture to be adhered to. That is: use more paint than indicated or leave it for longer does not mean that the color will adhere better and last longer. It is also important to evenly distribute the product. You should first wet the brush in the paint, deposit a little of the product in the root and, after a few seconds, spread it with a wide comb along the length. "Otherwise, the threads may be stained, with different nuances. This is the main mistake made at home, "says Julio Crepaldi.
Choose less harmful alternatives
"Dyes without ammonia are the least aggressive," reports Yuha. Will it make reflexes? Prefer paint to bleaching powder, which removes the mass of hair, leaving it porous. If the goal is to cover white threads, ask the hairdresser about specific techniques, which deposit the product only on them - so you avoid unnecessary application on the other strands. At home, those who do not have much white hair can change the tincture for the toner, which, as we have said, less strikes the thread.

One of the biggest risks that black wires suffer from is that they become opaque and lifeless. Keep the cut on time and strengthen the hydration of the threads, especially the dyed ones. Hydrate at least every 10 days with a beautiful layer of treatment mask.
- Retouching is necessary
Especially if you have white or blond yarn, you need to touch the color every 15 days, as black often fades.
Learn the best 4 tips to get the best of your tinted hair! August 21 2017
After painting the hair, it is very important to take some care to ensure the brightness and durability of the new color. Know what they are!
Using products for dyed yarn, using the oils of the moment and making use of antiperspirant shampoo are some tricks that guarantee the brightness and the color of the newly colored hair. Below, experts tell you which habits should go into your care routine once the locks have been painted.
- Use specific hair products with tincture
It's fact: treated hair and well-nourished hold plus color. The specific items for those with wick chemistry are more potent than the traditional ones. "The most important thing to prolong the health of the threads is to invest in hydration, which can be done weekly at home or intercalated at least once a month with a reconstruction procedure in the salon," says hairdresser Marcos Proença, from São Paulo . For blondes, it is worth using once a week products that promise to prevent the wicks from turning yellow. But beware, therefore, in excess, they can leave the hair bluish.
- Maintenance calls for oil
When it undergoes very aggressive chemical processes, the hair loses great part of its natural oiliness and, therefore, it looks resected and bristling. "In the care at home, it is necessary to recover this oil, fundamental for the nutrients to reach the tips," says the hairstylist Julio Crepaldi. Products with oil consistency are the best option. Use leave-ins or moisturizing finishers every day or opt for essential oil-based makeup masks once a week.
- Anti-dry shampoo can color
This type of product removes any trace of chlorine and other chemicals from the wires that may interfere with the color. It also has the power to soften the tone of the tinctures - especially the lighter ones - without altering it. It is thus well demanded in those cases where the blonde becomes greenish or the brown becomes darker than expected. Extra tip: As it opens the cuticle of the threads, it is advisable to use it before doing hydration. Thus, the assets penetrate better, potentiating the result.
- Defer the next visit to the salon
"To prolong the tincture, wash the hair as little as possible by massaging only the root area. Prefer warm water to very hot and avoid dryer, flat and babyliss, which accelerate the fading of the tincture." explains Yuha. Has the root grown a little? Bid on products that work as a make-up for hair. There are versions in a pen or in packages with brush similar to that of mascara, which disguise small changes in color. The toner can also be a solution to disguise a different tone root or white wires (although it does not guarantee 100% coverage), delaying in a few weeks the return to the hairdresser.
How to wash your hair in the best way! August 14 2017
Washing the wires seems like an easy activity, does not it? That is why many people have washed their hair incorrectly, damaging them daily. In this post, you will learn how to wash your hair properly and consequently have more beautiful and shiny hair.
Never wash your hair with very hot water, it can dry the wires and also your skin. Opt for washing with warm water (medium-term temperature) because too much cold water can cause oiliness. The water is warm, clean and maintains the natural luster of the threads.
Order of products
First apply the shampoo, which is responsible for taking the fat off the scalp. Always at the root, never at the tips.
Then apply the mask, which is responsible for moisturizing and replenishing the proteins.
Finally, apply the conditioner (only at the tips), which will close the cuticles.
Double application of shampoo: myth or truth?
There is no rule for this. The need to apply twice the shampoo, comes from the oils of the wires: the more oily, the more lack of shampoo they have. Or the size of them, if the hair is long, of course he will need more shampoo. If you have normal hair (no oiliness and shorter), you can only apply the product once. If you wash your hair less often, we recommend that you apply twice to strengthen the cleaning.

How to use Hair conditioner and masks the best way? July 24 2017
Due to lack of knowledge in the subject, some people replace the conditioner by the capillary mask day by day, damaging the wires, due to the excess of hydration caused by the intensity of these products. See below the differences between Conditioner and Mask:
The conditioners are indispensable products in the day to day, because they return the natural oil of the hair. These oils, emit a protective layer for possible traumas caused by brushes, sun, wind and pollution. In addition, this type of product is considered the main pair of Shampoo, wich, opens the cuticles of the threads, leaving the responsibility to close them due to the conditioner.

YOUR SALON HYDRATION AT HOME: LEARN HOW TO DO July 17 2017
With the right products, it is possible to make a homemade moisturizing with the same results as a professional.
When we talk about moisturizing hair at home, a good product is not necessarily expensive. Currently in the market many moisturizing masks get results very close to the procedure done in the salon, with the advantage of lasting much longer, having packages of up to one kilo. The gains are many: healthier hair, free from dryness and moisturized with a product that makes the difference in the look of the yarn, especially for those who have hair that suffer from chemicals such as coloring and straightening.
COST X BENEFIT CAN BE THE KEY OF HYDRATION
The main advantage of hydration pots is the cost benefit. The hairdresser Aline Santanna explains: "these pots of treatment can last up to 40 applications for those who have medium hair, that is, neither too full nor too large.It is an advantage for price and quality, they have a great cost x benefit". In addition, they are practical and save time in the day-to-day, as they avoid constant trips to pharmacies and perfumeries in search of specific products for hydration, and are also economical, since the result in the threads is similar to the procedure done by professionals .
HOW TO MAKE A PROFESSIONAL HYDRATION AT HOME
Moisturizing hair at home is not just about passing the mask on the wires and then rinsing. Many people complain that home hydrations are not as good as those in the salon, and that they do not have the same effects as one made by a professional. But with the proper application, it is possible to leave the locks beautiful and healthy without having to mark the time in the hall.
The first secret of hairdressers is to begin treatment from the shampoo, which leave the hair clean and ready to receive hydration. For the mask to have more effect, invest in the anti-waste, which will leave the cuticles of the yarns more open to absorb the assets of the cosmetic. In weekly care, switch use with another type of shampoo, especially if hair is chemically colored, as deep cleansing shampoo gradually removes hair chemistry and decreases the length of procedures - like straightening - in the locks.
SPECIAL TECHNIQUE FOR HYDRATION GUARANTEES GOOD RESULTS
Before passing the moisturizing mask on the threads, remove excess water and comb the hair with wide teeth, which prevents the fiber, more sensitive when wet, split while it is combed. Removing moisture is important because water can disrupt the effect of the cream, which may not be absorbed properly.
To apply hydration, a special technique is also required. Pass the product from ear level down, avoiding the root, wick to wick, massaging the hair parts so that the hair fiber absorbs the active moisturizing mask. After massaging the hair, choose a source of heat, such as thermal caps, foil or hot towel, because with heat, the scales of the thread open, facilitating the penetration of the cream into the hair.
SOME CARE TIPS FOR A POWERFUL HYDRATION
After respecting the time of the treatment, which depends on the manufacturer and the chosen product, rinse well, until removing all the waste, as Aline explains: "Rinsing well is a precious tip for those who make hydrations at home. Leave the hair heavy when the problem, in fact, are the residue that stay in the wires. The fault is not the cream, the mistake is not rinse right. "
The ideal temperature for rinsing water is ice, because at this temperature the hair scales close and retain the moisturizer for longer. Take advantage of this time to massage the scalp, which stimulates the renewal of the cells and nourishment of the locks. Another advantage of the icy shower is to brighten the locks, which will become more evident after drying. Then, just go to the usual finalization. If you choose a brush, it is important to use thermal protection to avoid damaging the newly hydrated wires.
OTHER USES FOR TREATMENT POTS
The masks of treatment masks are also versatile and can accumulate other functions, such as replacing the conditioner, assist in baths of brightness or potentiate a nutritious hydration with oils and vitamins, explains the hairdresser Lela Athanasio: "Today there is a Incredible variety of oils that can be used along with moisturizing to complement the treatment.It is possible to include the oil in the cream and use the two together, or use the oil as a finisher, only at the tips" taught the hair stylist.

It is contraindicated, straightening solutions that have chemicals that are extremely harmful to the health of hair, and in some cases even to health. It was thinking about this, that the market revolutionized once again, inventing a new technique to smooth the yarn called Taninoplasty.
What is Taninoplasty
The procedure consists of smoothing and moisturizing the hair in a natural way, avoiding the excessive use of dryers and flat irons, or chemicals that smooth but damage the hair. The composition of the product counts on the tannins, substances in some vegetables, mainly the bark of macerated grape, chestnut and oak.
Experts say these micronutrients are excellent anti-inflammatories and are often used as a preventive of cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and osteoporosis.

At every moment, new treatments appear with the promise of making hair more beautiful than ever. And at this time of year, where sun exposure and sea and pool bathing can dry out and further damage the wires, it is good to understand the function of each one, in order to choose the best solution to recover and invigorate your Tresses
Verinha Santos, a professional at Casa Mauro Freire, explains that the first step before making the decision is to talk to your hairdresser. "It all depends on the professional's analysis, which is best suited to suggest the best treatment. What we usually take into account are the chemical procedures already performed, the frequency with which the wires are washed and the exposure to the sun, "he says. Renata Souza, partner of SPA Dios, also explains that another factor to be taken into account is the season. "In summer, the yarns have a greater dryness. The heat causes the scales to dilate, causing greater loss of nutrients and water, and the result is double tips, tangled strands, opaque ect. It is worth remembering that, exactly for this reason, we need to pay close attention to the hair in the pre-summer, with the intention of keeping it more silky. "
KeratinBeauty.com has prepared a list of nine treatments that will help make your locks healthier. Look:
- Collagen Treatment: Launched this month by the Dios Dios, is an alternative to protect the strands of external aggressors like sun, sea and pool, being a good option especially for blondes. "In addition to collagen, there are other important active principles to ensure hair health: protein, keratin and 13 types of amino acids that help preserve color - especially blond - and prevent the wires from getting green in contact with chlorine" , Says Renata. According to the specialist, the effect is immediate and there is a reduction of frizz, as the treatment helps to prevent dryness, taking away the porosity and ensuring more shine, elasticity and resistance to wires.
- Cauterization: Better known, the procedure, clarifies Verinha, serves to leave the hair less porous and restores the keratin lost in chemical processes, making the wires shiny and silky. Cristhofer Gloe, Blend hair stylist, says that it is especially recommended for those who have extremely sensitive and brittle locks. "The application starts with deep cleansing shampoo and then applies the keratin, which stays in the hair for a few minutes. Then we rinse and we pass a moisturizing mask that must act for five minutes. The last step is washing and drying as you prefer, "he says. The specialist claims that cauterization is contraindicated for hair that is already healthy and with sufficient keratin in its fiber
- Moisturizing: The name speaks for itself, and Seide Abdala, an orthomolecular doctor specializing in hair, says it is critical to regaining the wear and tear of the wires and the loss of moisture caused by external agents to which everyone is exposed, such as salt, dust, Dryer and flat iron. "It is a treatment that replenishes lost water and acts on the surface of the fiber. The creams act in the capillary emollience, sealing the scales ", he says, noting that alone is not enough for those who need to recover the structure lost in chemical treatments like smoothing. "The frequency with which the hydration is done depends on each hair. If it is very dry, the ideal is to perform every week, and the least dry, every 15 days or a month. Before passing the cream, however, a good wash with anti-waste shampoo is necessary ", he teaches.
- Nutrition: Similar to hydration and with identical application, it is recommended as maintenance of a cauterization by Andreia Costa, owner of the Hair Pin salon. "It is possible to do at home and indicate the ampoules that are liquid, because they return the water lost without weighing the wires," he says. The contraindication is for those who have the oily root. The biggest benefit, according to Gloe, is the replenishment of nutrients and minerals.
- Embroidery: Exclusive treatment of the Dios Dios, revitalizes the threads and minutely removes the double, dry and damaged tips, without touching the length, the cut or the volume, says Renata. "It is suitable for all types of hair. The double ends are carefully cut one by one with the scissors. This process requires extreme attention and does not change the length. The open scales are more receptive to the mask with vitamins and nutrients that is applied soon after. The softness is immediate, "says the specialist.
- Sealing: The treatment acts almost like a smooth progressive, explains Verinha. "It closes the hair cuticles, reducing knots and frizz, but does not change its texture, ie it does not smooth. It is a procedure that provides for the strengthening and the birth of new wires, "he says. Gloe explains how it is done: "We use a deep cleaning shampoo and apply the product without using conditioner. We dry and we board. We must be cautious with chemically treated wires or light ones. A wick test is recommended before proceeding. "
- Shielding: Indicated for hair that needs hydration and cauterization, that is, that are weak and dry, can be made on any wire. For the hair stylist of Blend, the main benefits of the treatment are to return water and oil to the locks, leaving them with luster, softness and silkyness. "At the same time, the procedure rebuilds the hair fiber internally, leaving the hair healthier and stronger."
- Velatherapy: Good alternative for those who have damaged hair after the continuous use of finishers, dyes and reflexes. "It is indicated, mainly, to blondes, women of thin hair and / or hair with difficulty to grow. The technique consists of separating the strands into medium strands and passing the candle flame along them, "says Renata. The specialist of the SPA Dios clarifies that the goal is to unclog the channels through which vitamins and nutrients necessary to make the hair healthy. "The technique is also capable of eliminating double ends and recovering the texture and brightness of the threads, but the treatment is contraindicated for porous or elastic hair."
- Reconstruction / Restoration: Reconstruction is indicated for dry and brittle hair and has an application similar to that of hydration. "And the effect is very similar to that of cauterization, but with less intensity. The procedure restores lost matter and keratin by reconstructing the hair fiber and returning proteins and minerals. The hair grows stronger and has a better texture, "says Gloe, who points out that hair donors who are not damaged or lack keratin should avoid it, under the risk of stiffening the hair fiber. Andreia draws attention to the importance of cutting the ends before rebuilding. "You should not abuse rebuilders. Imagine that it is a cement - inside the wire, in excess, it can harden and leave it brittle. "
Moderation is essential
The owner of Hair Pin argues that it is important to alternate treatments to prevent the wires from becoming impervious. "The ideal, for example, between a sealing or shielding is to make a cauterization so that the hair is always strong. If waterproof, it takes time to lighten up and does not absorb the nutrients from the treatments. "
With lots of hair treatments that exists in the market, many people have difficulty in discerning which is the ideal for their hair type, and with this, end up harming it by the excesses of vitamins and other components in these products.
Hydration and Nutrition are treatments with different goals, and often used without knowledge by most people. Understand here the difference and find out which one is the best option for your hair type:
It is suitable for opaque and dry threads. Its main purpose is to retain water, providing the natural moisture of the hair, returning movement and flexibility to it. Normally, hair exposed to much chemistry needs the care of hydration.
We recommend: Panthenol, Glycerin, Keratin and Silicones.
Even the virgin hair of children needs nutrients. Nutrition is a very important replacement because all the wires are exposed daily to the sun, the wind, and in some cases, to the sea. Therefore, it is necessary, to restore the natural oiliness of the threads, lost with these day-to-day exposures.

Women with mixed hair need to take double care when it comes to taking care of the locks. Is it better to buy a product for oily hair or dry hair? We will give simple and very practical tips to make your day to day life easier.
Usually, women with curly, curly and curly hair are more likely to have oily root and dry ends. This is because the natural hydration produced by the scalp is concentrated at the root and can not get through the wires.
Not only the type of hair, but some external factors like the weather, excessive chemical procedures and the use of inappropriate products at the time of the bath also end up contributing to this type of hair.
Contrary to popular belief, washing the locks more than once a day to remove excess oil from the root is not beneficial. This process actually ends up stimulating the region to produce more oil.
Another mistake made by many women is to spend a long period in the bath so that the water takes off the excess oil from the hair. However, what really takes away oil is the shampoos and not the water.
The products used at the time of the bath are, in fact, very important. As your hair has different characteristics along the yarn, every part of it needs special care.
In the root, use a specific shampoo to control excessive oiliness and protect the scalp. On the tips, wager on conditioners and moisturizing products to prevent dryness.
Do not exaggerate in any of the products and rinse well in the washes. Leaving waste can end up damaging the health of your hide with irritations and dandruff, for example.
Hydration in mixed hair is necessary, but needs to be done with attention. As the root is more oily, the treatment creams should be applied only on length and at the tips. Escape from the scalp area and repeat the procedure once a week or every 15 days.
If you can, find a professional to guide you with the best technique. Homemade moisturizing is another great option for those who do not have much time on a daily basis. The only recommendation is to pay attention to the best product for your hair. Testing before and seeing how your hair reacts is critical to a good result.
If you are not a natural blonde, you know that lightening the locks can cause a lot of changes in the hair, such as breakage, dryness and color fading. The American Marie Claire consulted Clayton Lee, colorist of "Bumble and Bumble", to know how to treat the hair post-chemistry
- CHOOSE THE RIGHT SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER
By making lights, you should wash your hair less (avoid washing every day), regardless of your type of yarn, because the procedure dries and much washing will aggravate the problem and still fade the color. When choosing shampoo and conditioner, look for specific formulas to maintain and protect color and prefer non-sulphate products. To ensure that your blonde will not yellow, invest in a purple shampoo, but do not use every day, once a week is enough.
- MAKE REGULAR HYDRATION
If you have decided to become blonde, consider that the care will be eternal. Fading the wires causes damage and dryness. Therefore, you need to use nutrition mask or reconstruction on the wires, depending on your need, once a week or every 15 days. Also, invest in a leave-in. Whenever you wash the hair, wipe it in damp hair to achieve softer locks and seal the cuticles.
- PROTECT HOT TOOL WIRES
Dryer, flat iron and babyliss damage any type of wire, but are especially threatening to those who make lights. But since you probably use some (or all) of them, you need to minimize the damage. Use a cream or spray to protect your hair before using one of these tools. And do not forget to apply on full length hair and tips.
- AVOID THE SUN
When you go to the pool, wear a hat or cap to prevent the sun's rays from reaching the wires. They also dry and change the color. But if there is no way, there are hair products with SPF, apply before exposing to the sun.
- PREPARE THE HAIR TO THE SWIMMING POOL
Unnatural blondes think that the first swim they get in the pool will stay with the green wires. In fact, it's a risk, but there are a few ways to prevent it. Putting on a burrow is a great protection, but if your style was not great, you should prepare the wires before entering the pool: "Apply conditioner before entering the pool or the sea to create a barrier between your hair and the Salty or chlorinated water, "advises the colorist. "After leaving the pool, rinse your hair as soon as possible to remove the residue." If you swim frequently and notice some green tone on your wires, use a deep cleaning shampoo. But if the green persists, you should seek out your hairdresser for him to arrange the color.
- FIGHT AGAINST BREAKING THE WIRES
First and foremost, make sure your hairdresser does the touch up without damaging your hair. Other than that, retouching should be done when needed and not in a very short period of time. If you make lights every month or every two months, it will probably damage, break and cause excessive dryness to your wires. And to prevent hair from breaking and becoming fragile, invest in masks, especially those formulated for hair with a coloring process. In the absence of a mask, you can also use only the conditioner and let it act for ten minutes.
We hope we can help you, always! =)
We’ve tested the method that turned phenomena into salons
Victims of frizz, unite yourselves: this matter is for you.
Like thousands of women, my hair seems to have a life of its own, no matter the season or the humidity of the air. Every day my strings rebel as much as I put leave-in, spray, etc. It is a boring condition, but I confess that I had given up trying to find a solution. "Emphasize your faults," said Diana Vreeland, and so I fell into the capillary conformity.
Until I met the botox for the hair. About 15 days ago, I tested the method applied by hair stylist Evandro Angelo, from C. Kamura Hall, in São Paulo. And you want to know? I fell in love.
Capillary botox is a hair fill treatment that recovers the shine and elasticity of hair. Its greatest merit is the almost complete elimination of frizz.
Treatment that has become a breakthrough in hair salons in recent years, it promises (and, believe me, it does) reduce frizz and up to 50% of the volume without removing the natural waves from your locks. Not to mention the brightness - seven days after the application, I continue to receive praise for the healthy appearance of my hair.
WHAT IS COMPOUND
"Capillary botox is formulated with raw materials of very low molecular weight," says Evandro. Unlike the progressive brush, it does not take formaldehyde in its composition, in addition to having no smell and not causing discomforts such as itching or burning eyes during the application. In practice, it is the kind of completely painless, odorless and "quiet" treatment to do. All you need is time. "It will promote volume reduction and elimination of frizz thanks to the thermal realignment of alpha and beta zones of the fiber," explains the hair stylist.
HOW IT WORKS
Reserve at least three hours of your day when venturing out with the hair botox - but I guarantee it's worth it. The first stage is the traditional washing of the hair, which follows from the application of the product along the entire length of the threads, from the root to the tips. 50 minutes later, most of the botox is rinsed, leaving only 20% of the substance in the locks. After this phase, with the help of a board, the yarns are sealed quietly, wick by wick. After that, go to the water again: it is time to do the final rinse and finally perform the brush with a drier.
Although you come out with the super smooth strands, do not confuse the capillary botox with progressive brush: it takes out the frizz and the volume, not the curls and waves. In short, the treatment leaves you with hair the best style "I woke up like this", but without the part of the messy wires.
I washed my hair 24 hours after the treatment and did not have any problems: a week later, I leave the bath and let my hair dry naturally (I am not adept at the hair dryer). The result is that famous "salon effect" every day.
Does not have. Everyone can do it!
"Avoiding anti-oxidant products, keep the hydrations fortnightly at home and, every 30 or 45 days, perform deeper hydrations with your reliable professional," advises Evandro.

Tips to change hair color at home without making a mistake
When the idea is to change the look, revolutionizing hair color is often the first choice of women. But as it is not always possible to run to the salon, the solution is to dye the hair at home. Not that it's complicated, but changing the hair color at home requires extra care not to make mistakes and have unpleasant surprises.
Tips for not making mistakes
Choosing the color of hair paint is perhaps the most difficult part. The packaging of dyes usually brings a picture of color effects, this helps in the decision. But remember that tincture does not lighten tincture. If your hair is already dyed and you want to lighten the yarn, it is necessary to make a discoloration in the salon, passing one paint on top of the other can have a disastrous result.
Before you paint your hair at home, do the touch test to make sure you have no sensitivity to the product.
Put one drop of the coloring and another drop of developer behind the ear or forearm. Rinse after 40 minutes and wait 24 hours. If the area becomes red or irritated, do not use the product.
The hair must be dry to receive the dye. Before painting, stay at least a day without washing your hair, natural oiliness protects the hair and scalp from chemistry.
To know the ideal amount of dye, evaluate the length and volume of your hair. Long or very bulky yarns need two or more dyeing kits.
Prepare the dye by carefully following the instructions in the explanatory leaflet, each manufacturer has important guidelines that guarantee better results. The dye may run off and cause stains on the skin and clothing, so wear gloves and a towel on the shoulders.
Pass a silicone ointment, Vaseline or even shaving cream on the forehead, ears, around the face and at the nape of the neck to protect the skin from blemishes, especially if the tincture is dark.
Divide the hair into several wide strands to ensure the product is evenly distributed throughout the hair. Start the application by the nape of the neck, the wires of this region usually resist more the action of the paint and therefore need more time.
If you are just tinkering at home, start the application at the root, wait 20 to 30 minutes, then pull the ink toward the tips. Let it act for 10 to 15 minutes. This prevents the root from getting lighter than the tips of the hair.
When finished applying the mixture throughout the hair, check the indication of the box on which the action time of the dye. Wait rigorously for the indicated time, let the dye act or a little more or less can alter the final color, stain the wires and impair the fixing of the product.
When removing the product, rinse the hair until the water comes out completely without color. Do not use shampoo, most kits come with a post-coloring treatment cream sache to firm the color, pass and leave to act as directed. After dyeing, try to use specific shampoos and conditioners for dyed hair, they have ingredients that help maintain hydration of the hair.

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.

Find out what hair care you should have in winter
In winter, hair needs special care because of the low temperatures. In this period, we usually take hotter baths and the high temperature of the water ends up removing the oil from the scalp, which has a function of natural protection and lubrication of the wires.
With the removal of this natural oil, the hair can look dry, brittle, with double ends. In some cases, the body understands that I need to restore this lack of oiliness and therefore, the hair can look greasy.
Just like in the summer, the hair needs special attention when the cold arrives. And the top hair care tips in winter are pretty simple, check it out.
Using shampoo and conditioner of good quality and suitable for your hair type and doing hydration is the best option to keep the hair healthy in the winter.
First it is necessary to do a deep cleaning of the wires and to remove all the impurities. Then make a moisturizer with a specific cream for your hair type. Hydration should be repeated weekly.
Hot water is one of the main enemies of hair in winter. Dehydrates the wires, increases the fall and causes a scaling of the scalp that can be mistaken for dandruff. Therefore, avoid hot water in the wires to the maximum, always use warm water.
It is natural for hair to become oily in winter. So opt for lighter conditioners and creams and to untangle wires, use non-rinse products.
The use of the dryer must be done correctly, because the hot air in the wires causes the weakening. To prevent this from happening, apply a thermal protector or tip repairer to protect the hair before drying the hair.
Sleeping with wet hair
It is not recommended to sleep with wet hair, because besides being damp, it becomes weak and brittle. Also avoid wearing hats, berets, scarves and caps, as they increase hair oil even more and can cause fungal and bacterial scalp to appear on the scalp.
When washing the hair, massage the scalp. Thus, circulation and oxygenation will be active and acceleration occurs in the growth of the wires.
Learn the best way to use your conditioner! March 13 2017
Learn how to use the conditioner once and for all! Learn the importance of this product to your hair and the mistakes that you should avoid when using it.
Washing the hair is the most frequent procedure in our hair care routine. The shampoo and conditioner are the first products we choose to treat them. And this is not for nothing. They wash, treat, and condition the wires. But, do you really know how to use the conditioner the right way? Here's how to choose yours and the mistakes you should avoid.
How to use the conditioner correctly
Correct use of the conditioner does not start in the shower, but during your decision to purchase the product. In fact, the first thing to do is choose the correct conditioner. It should be exactly for your hair type, the more specific the better. For example, you can opt for cosmetics for curly yarn, which are usually drier and need more moisturizing, with the right products these problems can be solved or minimized.
During washing, the first step is the correct use of the shampoo. The ideal is to apply it at your fingertips and then massage the scalp with them. Do not rub the wires as this may break them. Rinse well, repeat procedure if necessary. Remove excess water with a towel or shaking the wires. Then apply the conditioner by massaging the length and tips. When applying the product, use it only below the height of the ears, without touching the root. This will prevent oiliness near the scalp. The root of the hair is already naturally moisturized, as it receives oil from the scalp. So, even if your yarns are dry, never apply the cream to full length.
Wick massages, put a part of the hair in the palm of the hand, at the height of the ear, close it and slide down. This will close the scales. Leave on for the time indicated on the product packaging and then rinse thoroughly. Allow the water to drain through the wires until all the conditioner has been removed, as the product stays in the wires and will become opaque, heavy and dry. Remember that the conditioner was made to be rinsed and should not be left in the hair.
It is important to note that the conditioner forms a protective film on the wire, protecting it from dehydration and also from possible damages caused by harmful agents, such as pollution, for example. In addition, this product is responsible for the smoothness of hair, making them easier to comb, brighter and less prone to breakage and double ends. It is foolish to think that the conditioner is only necessary for those who have dry hair. All hair, even oily ones, need to get the product after the shampoo, especially after using a highly astringent, such as anti-waste.
And, remember, if your wires are damaged, dried out or needing further treatment, also invest in a mask that will complete the care ritual.

Straightening the hair can help make the women's routine more practical, but it requires special care that goes beyond weekly hydration. Hygiene, for example, should be a little different from what you're accustomed to, whether it's to ensure healthy and beautiful yarns or to maintain chemical treatment for longer. Check out the tips of the Stay Diva and learn how to wash your tresses properly after the progressive brush!
Intercache the days of washing the hair
Girls who have recently invested in progressive brushing should give up washing their hair every day. This habit can accelerate the elimination of the chemical in the threads and lessen the smooth effect you both craved. The ideal wash interval is every two days, however, the owners of the most oily tresses can intercalate every other day to preserve smoothing.
Reveal the unsalted shampoo with the chemically treated hair
Smooth hair tends to be greasier than normal, so it is best to insert the type of shampoo to ensure clean and smooth wires longer. First, you can start with the unsalted shampoo, which will gently wipe the scalp without damaging the smoothing effect. Already at the next wash, maybe it's time to invest in products for chemically treated hair, as they will moisturize, strengthen and repair the hair roots when they start to grow.
In addition, the most recommended by dermatologists is to apply the salt-free shampoo only to the scalp and massage with the fingertips - never with the nails - to stimulate growth. When the foam begins to descend to the length, it is time to rinse and apply the conditioner from the middle to the ends of the hair.
Anti-residue shampoos do not even think!
The proposal of deep cleansing anti-waste shampoos may even be seductive, but you will be compromising your brush. This type of hygienizer with a higher pH than normal opens the cuticles of the hair, removing excess substances accumulated in the wires and scalp, including chemical processes such as smoothing and coloring.

Becoming redheaded is a decision that requires care and, of course, originality.

EXPERT QUESTIONS IDEA SHADES FOR PINK WHITE SKIN
Some people have a slightly rosy white skin tone, creating a more flushed appearance. To adhere to the redhead, in these cases, the hint of the visagist is to opt for the tone known as "strawberry blonde". "This tonality consists of a pale faded redhead, almost blonde, like the one adopted by the actress Jessica Chastain," he said.

Learn awesome tips to avoid UV damages! February 06 2017
Everyone has at least some notion that the sun's rays cause health damage. Therefore, dermatologists always recommend that we do not leave the house without sunscreen. However, we may not always have in mind that solar radiation also has effects on our hair. The article below talks a little about it and shows that the damage can be much deeper than we imagine.
I often see many natives complaining about the hair in the crown region. "It's dry, rough, brittle, opaque, it's the most curly hair on their heads, it's the hardest to care for!" And with me it's no different. The hair on the left side of the crown is always shorter and more prone to damage than the rest of my hair, with broken and broken ends. I have learned over the years that this is due to the fact that the crown region is always the most exposed to the external elements: sun, wind, rain, free radicals. I also thought that this exposure only resulted in more open cuticles and more porous threads, since the hair underneath is softer and responds better to treatments.
When I first read the book "Grow it!" I came to the section "Damage caused by the environment" and I was fascinated to learn that the damage caused by exposure to the external environment is much deeper than a simple mechanical reaction. Chicoro reveals that hair exposed to the sun without protection actually undergoes an irreversible chemical transformation! As is known, the sun can be harmful to the skin due to ultraviolet, UVA and UVB rays. These same rays can be harmful to hair, as the site Naturally Curly showed us with this informative post a few years ago:
"Many of us are familiar with whitening our hair when we spend many hours under the sun in the summer. For many people this is a desirable effect. However, this effect also signals the destruction of the pigment contained in the hair as a direct result of the oxidation of melanin, caused by UV rays. UV radiation can also cause a weakening of the molecular bonds in the hair, leading to fracture of the cuticle and the cortex of the hair. This results in dry, coarse, thicker hair because of damaged cuticles, double ends and breaks. "
However, in my opinion, Chicoro takes this information a step further and really demonstrates how the effects of the sun are very similar to those caused by discoloration. She says, "As a bleach, oxidation caused by the sun's rays can destroy or modify the chemical composition and components of the hair." She continues, stating that the hair has a group called a "thiol group" and these groups stabilize the hair strand forming disulfide bonds, which contribute greatly to the strength of the hair (throw "hair and disulfide bonds" in Google and you will see Many articles on the manipulation of these bridges in chemical processes like relaxations and smoothing). These thiol groups also make our hair slippery - and we know how important that is. But once the hair is oxidized by the sun, these bridges turn into sulfonic acids. These sulfonic acids are sticky and the hair with them will embarrass more easily. And that's not cool. Finally, she concludes by looking at the fact that this shift from disulfide bridges to sulphonic acids is permanent.
So what does this all mean to us that we are being challenged by our crowns? The simple answer: prevention and treatment. For the new hair that has not yet been exposed to the external elements, we need to protect it before the damage happens. For older hair, which has undergone chemical changes, we need to take treatment actions that reduce or eliminate the effects resulting from the damage. In practical terms, this means combining the following techniques:
- Conditioning - with deep treatments with moisturizing masks, as well as masks containing protein
- Moisturizing - to protect the sun's wires and combat dryness
- Finish with products that contain sunscreen
- Seal the hydration with oils and butters that offer some UV protection, such as shea butter or hemp oil
- Wear a protection that covers the hair, such as hats and scarves
- Adopt protective hairstyles to reduce the amount of hair exposed to the sun
- Do not use products that contain drying alcohols or substances that are "activated" by the sun, such as lemon
And just because you do not see the sun does not mean you are not being exposed to UV rays. Even on cloudy days, we should always be vigilant.
