Brasil Cacau is a product that was formulated to straighten hair strands by a minimum of 60 percent and remove frizz by 90 percent. The product will also reduce styling time as hair dries faster than it usually would, making it much more manageable. The entire treatment can take anywhere from two to three hours depending on hair thickness and length and lasts between two and a half and three months. The more treatments you do, the longer it lasts. After the full Brasil Cacau service you are left with beautiful, soft, healthy looking and shiny hair, but the best part is that it’s frizz free! Come moisture, rain or coastal humidity you will never look like a frizz ball again!
THERE seems to be a misconception around Brazilian Blowout and it ‘damaging hair’. Brazilian Blowout is a highly effective smoothing TREATMENT, it cannot damage the hair. The problem lies in the heat process. When stylists are not properly educated on whichever smoothing treatment they are using, they often over heat-style the clients’ hair. Different temperatures and how many times the client’s hair is being ironed should vary. The texture, density, colour history and condition should determine the ironing process, that’s why choosing a profesisonal service from Rock Paper Scissors is a MUST.

Before we get into any health conditions it’s good to know that there are also some external factors that may contribute to any hair or scalp health issues. Many scalp or hair conditions could be caused by using harsh shampoos and other hair chemicals. Simply by changing how you look after your hair, you can solve your problem.
Some other external examples may include:
So what are some of the problems you should be looking out for?
Oil on the scalp causes the skin cells to clump together forming white flakes. Dandruff seems to have a few causes including:
Depending on the cause the treatment could be as easy as lessening the amount of times you shampoo. Certain medication or special shampoos may be necessary in other cases.
Finding greasy yellow and oily flakes indicates that you might have seborrheic dermatitis. This is an inflammatory condition that occurs in areas where there is an abundance of oil glands. It can also include other areas like the face. The cause is not really known, but may be linked to hormones, a fungus and certain neurological issues. The treatment is the same as for dandruff.
A thick scaly crust that forms on your scalp especially along the hairline can be an indication of psoriasis. Psoriasis can also affect the whole body. This is an autoimmune problem and can be triggered by stress, infections, medications and may also be linked to genetics.
Topical treatments and medication may offer relief.
Losing a certain amount of hair is nothing to be worried about. You can naturally lose about 100 hairs every day. The hair falls out and new hair grows back again.
More serious hair loss can be caused by different reasons, such as:
Alopecia areata – bald patches
This involves quite a bit of hair loss causing some balding patches. In this case the immune system is attacking the hair follicles and is usually caused by severe cases of stress or may be due to an autoimmune disease. The underlying condition is treated to help prevent more hair loss
Telogen Effluvium – temporary hair loss
A temporary loss of hair mostly on the top of the scalp. This is due to stressful conditions including things like, childbirth, surgery or a serious illness. Most of the time no treatment is required as the hair grows back after the stress goes away.
Male pattern baldness – permanent hair loss
This is permanent hair loss and is caused mainly by being a hereditary trait. Meaning that it is all in the genes. Treatment can be with medication to prevent further hair loss and surgeons can perform hair transplants to help prevent further balding.
Women can also suffer from baldness mainly on the top of the head. It has been found that women rarely suffer from complete baldness. The cause in this case can also be genetic, due to hormone issues, birth control pills or just part of the ageing process.
Premature greying hair
Greying is natural as we get older, but there are instances where greying hair can happen to a younger person. In this case the cause can be blamed on genetics and a family history of the problem.
There are a few other more serious causes of premature greying:
Dying your hair can be a solution to cover the grey, but some people may be sensitive to the hair colour chemicals.

While one of the main causes of dry, cracking skin is the winter air, other factors can also impact heels. Common problems that contribute to heel issues include:
Skin loses its ability to stretch with age, so cracks are more common as you get older. Diabetes can interrupt the body’s ability to produce oils, making the skin less supple and more susceptible to extreme dryness.
Disease and disorders such as athlete’s foot, psoriasis, eczema, and thyroid disease may cause cracked heels. Excess weight can create extra pressure on the feet.

Medi-heel is a South African product which is safe to use and not absorbed by the bloodstream.

Hair extensions are methods of lengthening one’s hair by incorporating additional human or synthetic hair.
Hair extensions can add volume and length to your hair instantly. They are advertised and readily available everywhere. This might also be your first time thinking about getting hair extensions, so what are the things you need to know?
The human hair option should be the first choice as it just looks more natural, blends in better and lasts much longer, but you’ll have to see it as an investment as costs quite a bit more. The synthetic hair tends to look artificial and is easily damaged by heat. Having said that, the synthetic option might be for you if you only want to use it for a short period of time or for a special occasion as it is the cheaper option.
Paying a bit extra is worth it if you want to keep your extensions in for a longer time and be able to treat it as you would your normal hair. Hair extensions are in high demand so be careful where you buy from and where the actual product comes from.
“When getting your extensions you get what you pay for in terms of quality.”
There are many different types of methods for hair extensions. To choose one depends on your type of hair and how much you would like to spend. Find a stylist that has experience and knowledge in hair extensions. The last thing you need is badly installed extensions which can be damaging to your natural hair.
I found this term pop up a lot with hair extensions. Basically this type of extension is the finest hair you can purchase. The hair is aligned perfectly and the cuticles are intact. This makes the hair look completely natural in appearance.
Taking care of your hair extensions is an ongoing process and doing it correctly will ensure that it lasts longer and looks great. [READ MORE]
When getting your hair extensions be prepared to spend at least 3-4 hours, unless you go for the EASIPRO HAIR option at the salon. EASIPRO HAIR takes just 45 minutes to an hour to install.

Prices for hair extensions can be anything from a couple of hundred rand to a couple of thousand rand, depending on the type and method of hair extension. There is also a lot of care that goes into maintaining your extensions to make them look good and last longer.

BUT there is a difference…read on to find out how the perm has evolved into the latest hair trend.
The main difference between then and now in perming hair is; to get more volume and texture in the hair compared to the tight curls from the 80’s. A beachier wave look with softer curls seems to be the most popular option today. The modern perm can also vary the size and tightness of the curl giving you a more personalized hairstyle.
The name of the perm might have even changed on the service menu of some salons. Names like ‘the modern wave’ or ‘permanent textured curls’ are now used instead. The perming methods today also use gentler solutions to perm the hair, although to get the best and most healthy look, it is very important how you treat your hair before and after a perm. The modern perm also provides smoother waves with lots of volume instead of dry frizzy hair.
Here are a few basic tips if you’re thinking of getting your hair permed.
Here are some celebrities that have had a permed hairstyle and looked fabulous over the years.
Meg Ryan: Longer hair perm style
Charlize Theron: Loose Spiral perm for shorter hair
Kylie Minogue: wavy perm
Shakira: full small perms
