5 Tips and Tricks for People with Thin Hair

thin hair problems

Do you get annoyed when people with thick hair start complaining about being unable to tame and maintain their mane? The struggle with thin hair is real. If you have long hair – you now that you can never pull off the looks from Pinterest, because any kind of bun looks like a micro knot, your braid looks like a rat tail, and your ponytail is too thin. Basically, you can tie your hair with a bobby pin. If you have short hair – beware sunburns. Dry, itchy scalp is the worst when having thin hair that cannot provide a shade. Thin hair is the problem shared by men and women all around the world.

Here are the tips that can help you tackle the annoying problems that only thin haired people can understand.

Haircut

The right haircut will make your hair fuller. Steer away from super long hair. Long hair is heavy, so the weight will make your hair look thin and flat. Instead, opt for a cut that will give your hair volume and make it bouncier. For example, a wavy lob, light layers, beach waves, side bangs, deep side part and curls (create space between hairs)

Hair supplements

The beauty comes from inside – and from consuming certain ingredients which support thicker hair. Hair supplements such as CatalaseNow contain vitamins, minerals, and natural herbal additives which may help you achieve fuller hair and get lasting results. Find the list of ingredients here and buy CatalaseNow here.

Non-oily products

Oils (such as argan oil) are a popular hair care choice. They can be great for certain types of hair, however, they can weigh down thin hair and create a flat look. For that reason, opt for lighter, moisturizing hair products.

Blow-drying technique

The way you blow dry your hair can make a difference and show good, but temporary results. If you blow-dry your hair with the head flipped over, it will add a bit of oomph to your hair, creating the sexy, voluminous look. Add a bit of hairspray for a more lasting result.

Texturizing spray

The right products can do wonders for any type of hair! One of the perfect styling products for thin hair is a texturizing spray. Texturizing spray is something between a dry shampoo, wave enhancer, and a hairspray that can add needed body and movement to your style.

6 Beauty Ingredients To Try This Spring

natural beauty ingredients

Spring is coming!  Unfortunately, winter is never kind to your skin and hair. Chapped lips, brittle hair ends, itchy skin. Cold weather can dry out and damage your hair and skin, regardless of how frequently you condition it. Buried under all many protective layers of clothes and hats, nothing can breathe properly.

Needless to say, we are looking forward to spring. Warmer temperatures, lighter jackets, mild sun rays on the skin and spending more time in nature.The time has come for revitalization, detoxification, and regeneration. Therefore, we chose six beauty ingredients to rejuvenate your skin and hair. These ingredients support natural glow and health, which you need for the start of the new season.

Bentonite Clay

Bentonite Clay is a powerful natural detoxifier which has been used for centuries. Now it is a common ingredient in skin and hair cleansing products due to its ability to absorb toxins. On top of that, it is packed with minerals. You can mix it with other ingredients when making a mask for super clean and soft skin/hair, but avoid using metal spoons and containers!

Panthenol

Most of all, panthenol is an ingredient which is well-known for regenerating, healing, and softening skin and hair. Use it after sun tanning, waxing, shaving, or whenever your skin is stressed out. In addition to that, panthenol can be added to your shampoo to promote growth and hydrate your scalp and hair. Perfect!

Glycerin

A substance found naturally in skin, glycerin will protect your skin and fight against dryness. That’s why it is a frequent ingredient in creams and lotions. Our suggestion – add a few drops of pure glycerin to your hand cream. However, note that glycerin must always be combined with other ingredients. Don’t use pure glycerin on your skin as it will have a rather opposite effect of the one you are after, and try to avoid synthetically derived glycerin.

Catalase

An enzyme found in nearly all living organisms, Catalase is now clinically studied for its ability to protect cells from the toxic effect of hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is believed to be the culprit to why human hair ages and looks dull. CatalaseNow is one of many hair supplements which include Catalase. In addition to Catalase, it contains a blend of minerals and vitamins which promote youthful and thicker hair.

Coconut Oil

Do we even need to write about coconut oil? Let this be just a reminder. Our favorite ways to use this popular beauty ingredient include coconut oil as a makeup remover and an overnight hair treatment. Apply coconut oil to the hair ends before you go to bed, and wash it out thoroughly the next day. Your hair will be amazingly soft.

Chamomille

A chamomile tea is not only a soothing and calming herbal tea but a great beauty ingredient. It will calm down your nerves AND your skin. Whenever your skin is irritated, dab a bit of unsweetened chamomile tea with a cotton pad. What’s more, you can use it as a hair rinse to soften your hair.

Five Tips for Getting Fuller Hair

tips for getting fuller hair

Whether it’s due to hair loss, heavy styling products or hair weight – losing your volume makes every day a bad hair day. Thick, voluminous hair looks healthy and allows different hair styles. It’s no wonder many women use hair extensions to get thicker hair and a sexy hair whip like the one from commercials. However, extensions can be quite pricey, uncomfortable, and damaging for your hair. There are still other ways to keep your tresses looking volumized and badass. Whether you want thick braids and ponytails, big buns or a messy, bedhead look, here are five really simple and easy tips for getting fuller hair, without using hair extensions.

Get a better cut

Long, flat hair can make your hairstyle look a bit dull and volume-less. If you wish to make your hair appear more volumized and thicker, opt for layers and shorter cuts. Shorter hair is lighter, which immediately adds some volume and makes it bouncier.

Don’t use heavy products

It’s important to condition your hair correctly (which usually means – don’t over condition!) and avoid products that can weigh it down, such as silicone-based products, oils and heavy sprays, mousses, waxes, creams, and gels. Some of those products can make your hair looks shiny and smooth, but it’s only temporary and not good in the long run.

Use castor oil

We’ve said not to use oils – however, castor oil is well-known for supporting hair growth. Add a bit of castor oil (just a bit) to your shampoo to make your hair grow faster and thicker, or make a pre-shampoo homemade mask, and wash it out thoroughly. Also, feel free to distribute a bit onto your lashes and brows, if you want them thicker, too.

Little styling tricks

This is one of the quickest and cheapest tips for getting fuller hair.  Blow dry your hair upside-down to instantly add more volume at the roots. Also, wearing a really high ponytail for one hour or more can do the same trick, or changing the place where your hair is parted. It’s not very permanent – your hair will go down after a while, but it’s so easy!

Take hair supplements

On the other hand, this is one of the tricks for getting fuller hair that takes time (usually 8 to 12 weeks). However, it’s worth it! Taking supplements for hair growth will feed your hair inside out. Products with hair thickening vitamins such as CatalaseNow may promote growth through nurturing your hair with vitamins, minerals and the powerful antioxidant Catalase (read more here)

Natural Beauty: Four Best Foods for Healthy Hair

best foods for healthy hair

There are amazing hair products on the market, and there are those that you throw away after one use. Some work for us, some don’t. We spend so much time and money trying to find the best conditioner that will make our hair look like the one in the commercial. However, we forget an important fact. Natural beauty comes from within. Healthy hair, skin and nails need healthy food in order to grow and look radiant. Basic dietary changes can make you feel good and look good, all you need is to provide your body with the right nutrients. Here are four best foods for healthy hair.

Eggs

Not only are they an excellent source of proteins – essential nutrients which are basically building blocks of your whole body, including hair, but they also contain biotin and sulphur. Whereas biotin is believed to promote hair growth and prevent the loss of hair color, sulphur is necessary for the production of collagen and keratin. Choose your favorite way to prepare eggs and make your hair, skin and nails happy.

Nuts

Nuts can do wonders for your looks and health.  Almonds, pecans, pistachios, peanuts, walnuts, and Brazil nuts are rich in good fats, vitamins, minerals and proteins, which makes them one of the best foods for healthy hair. However, this perfect go-to snack is also packed with calories, so don’t eat more than a handful in one day.

Green, leafy vegetables

Typically not everyone’s favorite type of food and the epitome of tasty – green leafy vegetables are gold mines of the important nutrients. Not only are they vital for your health, inexpensive, and low in calories, but they can also help strengthen and thicken your hair so that you experience less breakage.

Oats

A lot of people eat oatmeal in the morning – without knowing that this quick and easy breakfast food is also rich in the vitamins and minerals that  your hair needs, such as zinc, biotin, magnesium and potassium. Soak oats overnight in greek yogurt and top it with fruits or nuts in the morning for a super-healthy breakfast.

Vitamin Supplements

If you are not a big fan of leafy vegetables and oats, you can still have your daily amount of vitamins and minerals. There are hair pills which contain the vitamins and minerals that promote thick and shiny hair, such as vitamin B6, copper, folic acid, zinc, and vitamin A. One of them is CatalaseNow, a product with the powerful antioxidant Catalase enzyme and a mix of herbal, mineral and plant additives that support great hair.

Five Natural Ways to Get Better Hair

five natural ways to get better hair and make fuller hair

Looking for natural ways to get better hair without spending too much money on hair products that might not be as good as advertised? Natural alternatives to getting thick and smooth hair are great for various reasons. With natural products you don’t pay for the brand name, you don’t get the nasty chemicals that many hair products include, and you get the very essence (why buy a conditioner with coconut oil, when you can use coconut oil?) Healthy hair is beautiful hair. The shiny and voluminous hair comes from the inside, so taking the right food and supplements will provide your hair with the nutrients necessary for it to be healthy and look good on the outside. Here are five natural ways to get better hair.

1. Eat more protein

You are what you eat. A strand of hair consists of proteins, so enough protein in your diet will provide your hair with the building blocks necessary for the hair to grow. What’s more, protein rich food usually has plenty of good fats that will make your hair silky. Make sure you consume enough organic eggs, chicken, turkey, oily fish, beans, nuts, and seeds.

2. Add nettle drops, panthenol and cold-pressed castor oil mix to your shampoo

All these ingredients are well-known for stimulating hair growth by improving blood flow and making cuticle thicker and stronger. Add 100 ml (3.3 fluid oz) of panthenol, 30 ml (1 fluid oz) of nettle drops, and 50 ml (1.6 fluid oz) of castor oil to one liter (34 fluid oz) of shampoo. Castor oil can be very thick, so be careful not to put too much.

3. Leave coconut oil on your hair overnight

All great ways to use coconut oil on your skin aside, this oil penetrates into the hair follicle much better than other natural oils. Also, this natural remedy for damaged hair smells better than most oils. Apply coconut oil on your scalp and dry ends, leave it to soak over night, and shampoo it as usually in the morning.

4. Use henna and cassia obovata instead of hair dye

If you have never succeeded in being a redhead without making your hair look like a bunch of brittle hay, henna is an old and natural way to have shiny and fierce ginger/red/auburn hair. Make sure you shop organic henna blend, without additives! Dying your hair with henna might be slightly more time consuming, but it’s worth it. It coats hair in a protective layer, so silky hair is guaranteed!

5. Include vitamin supplements into your diet

As stated, thick and healthy hair comes from the inside. Hair supplements will enrich your body with additional vitamins and herbs that your hair might be missing. One of them is CatalaseNow Super Premium Vitamin which contains the super antioxidant enzyme called Catalase, and a mixture of herbal and mineral ingredients that may combat toxins and prevent hair loss and thinning.
