Blowouts: Brazilian vs Yuko

Category : Hair

The season of pushing that snooze button one to many times is here. Thermal hair straightening processes allow you those desperate extra minutes in the morning, as it keeps curly and unruly hair straight and manageable. There are two main permanent straightening processes, the most popular is the Brazilian blowout and the second is called, Yuko, also known as Japanese thermal blowout. Now the question is, what is the difference?   

 

Yuko                                                                   

Japanese thermal blowout (Yuko) Yuko was granted patent over a decade ago in 1995 in Japan. This thermal reconditioning process is more special than any other thermal reconditioning process because it uses the unique “Aqua Gold.” Aqua gold is the main ingredient in this process. It is a finished product that forms when water molecules combine with gold molecules in the liquid process causing the chemicals to react. When this happens it ensures that the solution penetrates every hair strand. The process involves washing hair and blow drying, then dividing hair into sections where the chemical solution is applied and allowed to rest for 30min-90min. Hair is rinsed and blow dried and finally flat ironed. This process can last up to five hours, depending on the thickness and length of hair. Japanese thermal reconditioning does not need any special shampoo for at home care. Hair is permanently straight, new growth hair will retain its natural texture.

 

Brazilian 

The Brazilian blowout uses Keratin as the main ingredient, which is a protein found in hair and nails. It contains 2% Formaldehyde which prevents the hair from frizzing. Brazilian blowout processes are faster than other thermal reconditioning processes. The Keratin is infused into washed hair using a flat iron. The protein Keratin repairs any internal damage and replenishes it, by protecting the hair from any further damage caused by heat. The Brazilian blowout does not open and breaks hair cuticles as other processes do and can last up to four months. The process is a lot quicker than the Yuko process. Hair is shampooed with a Brazilian anti-residue professional shampoo. The Brazilian chemical treatment is applied to towel-dried hair section by section. The protective protein flattens the cuticle. Hair is then blow-dried straight with a paddle brush and flat ironed. When that is completed hair is rinsed (not shampooed) a Brazilian blowout masque is applied to seal the hair, once it is rinsed off a Brazilian blowout smoothing serum is applied to seal each hair strand. Finally, hair is then blow-dried straight. The entire process can last approximately 90 minutes. You will need special sulphate-free shampoos and conditioners for at home care.    

Speak to one of our hairstylists to help you choose which one of these is best suited for your specific needs. The Yuko and Brazilian have advantages to protect your hair, leaving you with sleek straight hair, allowing you to push that snooze button and have worry-free hair days. 


Fast Facts on Winter Hair

Category : Hair

Winter is Coming Here!

Fading fast is the long days of fun in the sun, not mention your summer tan. Your hair has been exposed to the sun,wind, seawater and pool chemicals. Even that refreshing sea air has left your hair dried out. Those sexy beachy curls aren’t that beachy anymore. With winter fast approaching your hair might signalling an SOS.

Dull Hair

During the months of winter with much less exposure to the sun hair generally becomes dull, which let’s face it if your hair is looking dull, is going to filter down to your face. Investing in a good Moisture lock shampoo and hydrating conditioner will keep that shine in your hair and make you feel like you are walking on sunshine all your way through this winter.

Static Hair 

Yes! Static hair can become one of those early mornings groans. Winter months have much less of the humidity than in the summer. Which causes patrons, neutrons, and electrons to move around in the air causing a lot of static electricity. Especially with those lovely woolly warmers. Avoid this by using natural brushes and combs, stay away from the plastic. Use a hair serum or leave in products. Using an ionic hair dryer can work wonders to tame those literally static flyaways. 

Split Ends

With the lack of moisture in the air, hair becomes brittle causing split ends galore! It is easy to protect your hair from the split end season. 

  • Use a wide tooth comb post shampooing your hair as well as after. 

  • Have a good leave-in conditioner that also has heat protection for blow drying. 

  • Get your hair trimmed regularly to get rid of those nasty split ends. (make an appointment: 021 9794292) 

But we know some days are just impossible to get to your stylist in time. So here we have a home remedy for a quick fix until you can get to the salon. 

This will smooth out those split ends. 

Mix together: 1 egg yolk, 2 tbsp of olive oil and 2 tbsp of honey. Once mixed well apply to towel dried hair and cover with a shower cap or cling film. Let the magic happen for approximately 30 min. Shampoo as normal. The emollient properties will seal those split ends for a few days. 

Matting hair

We know the feeling, winter creeps up on us quickly and out come those coats, scarves, and beanies. By the end of the day, the hair in the nape of our necks are left so matted we could call them dreadlocks! How to avoid this painful problem is simple. With braids being very mod, braid your hair and turn it into a braided bun or side braid. But if you really need to wear your hair loose take a section of your hair from behind your ear towards the nape of your neck and tie a low pony and leave the rest of the hair falling over it. No one will be able to see it and you are left with matted free hair! 

 With these easy tips to tame the winter hair blues, you will be able to flaunt those golden locks or sleek brunettes all your way into Spring! 

 

                     


Everything you need to know about hair masks

Category : Hair

Most of us, when thinking about any type of beauty mask, think of face masks or even some type of body wrap. How many of us would actually put a mask on our hair? But when it comes to looking after our hair, a hair mask might just be the thing to keep our luscious locks moisturised and healthy. Let’s look at a few questions you might have, and see if we can find out everything you need to know about hair masks. And next time you visit our salon, be sure to ask about our incredible hair treatments!

What is a hair mask?

The first question is fairly simple, what is a hair mask? Well, you can think of a hair mask as being a type of enhanced conditioner. A hair mask provides a little more than your average hair conditioner. The main benefits include extra moisture and nourishment for your hair. This is especially helpful for those who have damaged or dry hair. A hair mask is usually heavier, meaning it is made up of moisturising butter like shea or coconut. You can also have heavier oils like avocado or Argan oil added in for extra benefit.

Who should use a Hair Mask

A lot of women put their hair through a fair amount of stress, from colouring to heat styling and even being exposed to harsh environments. All of this can cause some hair damage, which is where a hair mask comes into play. Masks are especially good for those who have dry, damaged or frizzy hair. If you are someone who has oily hair, it might be best to avoid hair masks or to find one for your specific hair type.

Benefits of a Hair Mask

  • Helps reduce breakage
  • Moisturising, deeply conditioning and nourishing
  • Aids in eliminating dandruff
  • Leaves your hair shiny, smooth and soft
  • Helps prevent split ends and frizzy hair
  • Helps to improve hair manageability
  • Can help to enhance the colour of your hair

How to apply your hair mask

Begin by first shampooing your hair, as normal, rinse and apply the hair mask. You will need to leave your hair mask in, for at least a few minutes, in order to get the most benefit. All of the good oils and nourishing ingredients have to properly sink in. After 10 to 15 minutes, you can then rinse your hair out. Leave the conditioner out when using your hair mask. You should only use a hair mask about once a week, or if you have really damaged hair, twice a week. Also, when applying your hair mask, you only need to use a small amount. A little bit does go a long way.

 

Some hair masks can also be applied to dry hair and then left in for about 20 minutes. This is great for those who have really dry hair, it’s something you can think about doing on those lazy days you don’t have a lot to do. You could also apply the mask before you go to bed, just wrap your hair in a towel, shower cap or scarf, so as not to mess up your pillow.

 

 

You can then shampoo and rinse out the following morning. When applying a hair mask to wet hair, try to use a wide tooth comb, this helps to distribute the mask evenly over all of your hair, from your scalp to the tips of your hair. The tips or ends of the hair is the area where the most damage can occur, so give a little more attention here.

Hair Masks currently available

When looking to buy a hair mask, there are many options. I always find the best way to find out which products to buy, is to look at some reviews. Here are some hair mask product reviews from South African women.

DIY Hair Masks

You can make your very own easy hair mask, there are plenty of recipes online, it should be easy to find the right one for your hair type.

8 Ways to avoid Dry Hair

Category : Hair

Your hair needs constant attention in order to keep it healthy. In the summertime, you have to think about protecting your head and hair from the sun. Then there are things like pool chemicals. In the winter time, the main thing to look out for is that terrible frizz and, of course, dryness. So, let’s have a look at some ways to avoid dry hair during the coming winter months.

“I love what the rain has done to my hair – said no one Ever!”

Using hair oils

Argon oil is a popular product, which can help to soften and keep your hair and scalp moisturised. The oil can also help to enhance the shine of the hair, assist with hair growth and is particulalry helpful for frizzy or damaged hair. For dry hair, you can easily add a couple of drops to your conditioner. Combine together and apply to your hair, then leave it in for 2 to 3 minutes. Then rinse your hair. There are other oils you can use, depending on your hair type, ask your hairdresser for recommendations.

Hats and other headgear

Winter weather conditions can be harsh on your hair so in order to protect your hair, especially if you are going to be outside for long periods, is to cover your head. You can try a beanie or why not go for a stylish hat. Any hat lined with satin or silk will also aid in preventing frizzy hair.

Control that frizz

Many of us understand the struggle with frizz, especially in the moist winter months. This problem could also become worse by adding in woolly or synthetic hats. There are quite a few frizz control sprays out there for you to choose from. There are also a few hair frizz hacks you can try out. Another tip, you can try using silk or satin pillowcases, which helps to prevent static and frizz.

Regular Trims

In order to eliminate split and dry ends, having regular trims should do the trick. You can schedule your trim for every 3 to 4 months, this should keep your hair healthy and split-end free. If you are unsure, just ask your hairdresser, they should be able to tell you what would suit your hair type.

Washing hair too much?

Too much washing can dry your hair out, try to keep your washing down to three, even two times during a week. This also helps to minimize the time spent on your hair, using a blow dryer or other heat styling products. In winter you tend to sweat less, so washing your hair less shouldn’t be a major problem. The major benefit from this is so that your scalp can naturally produce oils, which can then coat and protect your hair.

Avoid too much hot water

Again, washing your hair too often and using hot water, can dry out your hair. Not only that but if you have dyed your hair, this will only make the colour fade faster. Try to use more lukewarm water and then a bit of cold water to finish off, helping to close the cuticles and pores of the hair and scalp.

Moisturize your hair

If you have really dry hair why not try a hydrating hair mask, which can be applied at least once every week. During winter your hair becomes dry, due to the fact that your natural oils are being stripped away. You tend to stay indoors a lot during the cold winter months, most houses and offices have heating inside and this is what can dry the air out, as well as your hair. The mask can help to restore these oils. There are plenty of hair mask products on the market but you can also try to make a hair mask yourself from natural ingredients in your home.

Choosing your shampoo

You may want to try a sulphate free shampoo, as this ingredient in shampoos seems to strip hair of its natural oils. Choose a more natural shampoo free from sulphate as well as other unnecessary chemicals. When looking for a conditioner, also try to go more natural but you can look for products that contain things like fatty acids, panthenol and soy protein. All of these ingredients are great for moisturising your hair.

This Season: Give the Gift of an Experience

Category : Beauty , Hair

Why Gifting an Experience is Best

Struggling to find that unique gifting idea for someone? Many people today are just too busy to go out to the shops and search for that perfect gift. So, they land up giving the same old thing, chocolates, wine, bath products etc. There’s nothing wrong with these types of gifts, but for those who are closer to you, maybe something more original would be more exciting. Gifting an Experience is becoming more popular as a way to fulfil people’s desired interests.

Can you remember what you got three years ago for your birthday? Even if you can remember what it was, do you still have it?  Then think about the first time you went on holiday with a loved one, to the beach, overseas, or elsewhere. Can you recall all those memories? The time you went to your very first music concert with your friends? You forget about material things, but experiences and memories are lasting.

“We don’t remember days, we remember moments” Cesare Pavese

You even get those not so good experiences, where you fell into a mud puddle or got lost in the city you were visiting, these become stories you tell over and over again for a laugh. These experiences are almost always done with somebody and by gifting an experience, this can only bring you closer to your loved one. The gift is not just a once off thing, an experience is shareable and the memories can last a lifetime. Social experiences can also influence how happy we feel. After going on a picnic, or to the beach with a friend or family member, how did it make you feel? This is what sets a material gift apart from a gifted experience, the emotion that comes out when sharing the experience.

There have been studies, which actually show that material gifts lose their appeal faster. On the other hand, experiences tend to build excitement, which lasts, even when the actual experience is over. An experience is also something that can’t be compared too much, you know when you get that new iPhone. You might start comparing it to the new one your friend just got, which has more features.

Giving an experience as a gift is a lot more personal and there has to be some thought put into it. You can’t go and purchase a skydiving voucher when the person is afraid of heights. You have to learn more about the person you want to buy the gift for. What do they like and dislike, in order to come up with a unique and thoughtful gift experience? To make it easy for you, today most of the vouchers for experiences can be purchased online.

Reasons why you should try gifting an experience

  • The best reason is the anticipation. For any other gift, you unwrap it and then the excitement fades, but your anticipation builds for however long until the day of the event.
  • Getting new things is great, but in a lot of cases, these things just land up on the shelf collecting dust. Not so with gifting an experience, you will only land up with awesome memories.
  • Finding happiness, buying stuff can feel good but in the long run, does it actually make you happy? A fun experience can fulfil that need.
  • An experience is usually done with somebody else, so not only is it exciting for you but also for those who share the experience with you. You get to build relationships while you’re at it.
  • Those who receive an experience as a gift will always remember the giver.

Look no further

There are many categories when it comes to these types of gifting ideas. One of the major categories include experiences at a beauty or hair salon. You won’t go wrong with a beauty voucher that includes a wash, cut and hair treatment followed by a massage, manicure or pedicure.

The ladies usually have a favourite hair and beauty salon they prefer, so try a voucher here first before anywhere else. Have a look at what we have to offer. Hair Menu. Beauty Menu.

 


Did You Know That Great Looking Hair Boosts Your Confidence?

Category : Hair

Do you feel better when you have a good hair day? You are not alone. According to a new survey from SexyHair.com, 77 percent of women don’t feel like themselves when they are having a bad hair day. Hair confidence is key to feeling good about yourself.

Based on how we feel about our hair, it seems that looks do indeed matter, whether for personal self-esteem reasons or societal standards. It impacts how we feel about ourselves, and how we are viewed in our personal and professional life.

Hair has always played an important role in life: all the way back with ancient royalty to colonial times with elaborate wigs to prove status, wisdom, and wealth.

More Stats

1 in 4 women say that making sure their hair looks good is their biggest concern when making a good impression.  42 percent of women say a sexy hair day is the one thing that would give them a confidence boost, more than just a sexy outfit, a fresh manicure and even new shoes.

When a woman feels good about herself, that confidence pours over into every part of their day.

The survey also revealed that women are most likely to experiment with their hair when they feel comfortable in their environments, and don’t try new looks when they know they are meeting someone for the first time. The internet has given us access to an endless stream of information, thus the ability to follow YouTube tutorial instructions to the “T”, which means now, more than ever before, we can try new styles like curling our hair with a straightener or braiding it.

Hair is also one of the top three features mentioned when describing another person aesthetically. It creates a first impression, similar to one’s smile, eyes, and skin.

How to make your colour last longer

Category : Hair

Everyone loves how their hair looks after a colour treatment. But a month or so later, the colour seems to fade and look dull. Good news! There is a way to make your colour last longer,  and you should definitely give it a try.

“ Everything looks better in colour”

What could cause your hair to fade faster?

  • Styling your hair every day with heat can be causing your hair to fade faster. Today, you may be able to find straightening irons that have a special setting for those with coloured hair. You also get special products that you can apply before styling, known as ‘ thermal protectants’
  • The most obvious cause for fading your hair colour is washing it too often. If your hair is not oily, try to wash every second to third day. You could consider using dry shampoo to extend the time between washes. Hot water is also a culprit when it comes to fading hair, so if you can, try to wash in cooler water. Only use the cooler water after conditioning as this closes the hair cuticles. If you do this after shampooing, the conditioner will have no real effect.
  • Sticking with washing your hair, it also matters what type of shampoo you are using. Some shampoos that contain sulphates and other chemicals can have an effect on the colour. It is best to purchase shampoos that are colour safe or more natural and sulphate free.
  • In the summer months, exposing your hair to the sun and harsh water can strip your hair of moisture and colour. Try applying a hair mask once in a while. The sun can also be a culprit when it comes to fading hair. Try using a shampoo with UV protection and if you do go out into the sun, remember to wear a hat.
  • Speaking of harsh water, chlorine is bad for your hair whether it is coloured or not. The best way you can take care of your hair is to wash out the chlorine before it dries completely. Some professionals also recommend using a leave-in hair conditioner before going to swim.
  • Be aware of hair products with large amounts of alcohol as an ingredient. These will dry the hair out and also fade hair faster.

Making your hair colour last longer

One of the first things you can do to help save your hair colour is not to wash your hair too soon after the colour has been applied. The dye needs time to settle and washing too soon can rinse some of the colour out and causing the colour fade faster.

You can try to apply most of the shampoo to the roots, work up a lather and then move a little bit of the shampoo over the rest of your hair before you rinse it off. The water that comes out of the shower may also have chemicals in it, these chemicals can be one of the causes that fade your hair colour. Today, it is easy to purchase a shower head filter that helps to stop any chlorine or other chemicals and metals coming through.

Keep your hair hydrated by applying a colour-friendly conditioner and using a moisturising treatment once a week. There are many products available for this purpose, but you can just as easily use one simple, natural product, jojoba oil. You can also use other oils including coconut oil or Argan oil.

Have a look at this video, which gives you the tips on how to make your colour last longer. You will also find a few recommended products that can easily be purchased from your local store or our salon.
