Clarifying your Hair

By: Siera Herrera
Everyone on the planet washes their hair. Whether it be with salon professional shampoo or the stuff you can get from the grocery store (which is perfectly fine). But do you really know what kind of shampoo you should be using? Shampoo for color treated hair? Damaged hair? Does your hair get too oily or dry? Do you use a ton of product? All those factors coincide with the type of shampoo you should use for you hair.

If you use a ton of products on your hair, you tend to have a lot of build up and excess oil from all the products. A Clarifying Shampoo is going to get rid of all the buildup and restore your hair natural shine. For color treated hair, a clarifying shampoo with no sulfates and salt is the way to go. Clear it up Detox Shampoo by ColorProof is Sulfate free, salt free, gluten free, and 100% vegan. It removes the icky product buildup without stripping your color while containing vitamins E & C. Vitamin E helps give you a healthier scalp while assisting with maintaining hair growth. Vitamin C helps build collagen which is crucial for hair growth and strengthening. Ask your stylist on your next visit for their favorite clarifying shampoo!  How often should I use a clarifying shampoo? It all depends on your hair!

Say you are a swimmer and you are in a chlorine pool every day. A green tint can accumulate overtime on your hair from the high amount of copper compounds that are put into pool water. To get rid of the tint, swimmers should use a clarifying shampoo weekly. If you are still feeling some build up, clarify twice a week. That goes for people that use a ton of product in their hair too. Using a lot of product or using it everyday can produce nasty build up that can make your hair feel icky. If you use a ton of product, you should clarify at least once a week. It really all depends on how much you put your hair through and the hardness of your water. If you are using minimal products and have softer water--- you probably only need to clarify once every other month. Using a clarifying shampoo to often, it can strip your hairs natural oils that keep your hair shiny and can cause dryness with overuse. So be careful!

To Clarify, start with a nickel or quarter sized amount of shampoo and work it into your scalp. Massage your scalp lightly for about 60 seconds, don’t be freaked out if it doesn’t lather, it may not! Not all shampoos lather. It all depends on your hair type and the shampoo you use! Rinse the shampoo out thoroughly. Next, you should use an even smaller amount and work that throughout the rest of your hair. Let the ‘suds’ sit on your hair for about 2 minutes. Letting the shampoo sit for a few minutes helps break down and release all that product build up. It’s important to rinse your hair thoroughly. If you have an unusual amount of buildup, repeat the process if your hair isn’t prone to dryness.

If you don’t want to use a shampoo, here are some remedies that have shown to have the same effects! Use some diluted vinegar all over your hair to reduce build up. Be sure to rinse out your hair very thoroughly. Worried about the smell? It goes away after your hair dries! Using a baking soda and apple cider vinegar paste is also effective! Put 1/3 of a cup of baking soda in a medium sized bowl and slowly pour in the vinegar (it can fizz) until a paste forms. You can add some essential oils like rosemary that can help boost hair growth and shine! Tea tree oil is also a good detoxer that has antibacterial benefits. Just add a few drops into your mixture!

Healthy hair is beautiful hair!

Why I Can’t Live Without These 3 Hair Products!

By: Brianna Gallo
There are so many different types of hair products being produced throughout the world. There are large varieties of shampoos and conditioners as there are hair sprays and voluminous products. Each product is made for a certain type of hair texture or style the buyer is looking for. Some individuals have super thick and curly hair while others may have thin and super straight hair. I like to think I fall somewhere in between the two of those extremes. I am also one to not want to do too much maintenance on my hair daily due to a lack of time to spend on my hair before my day starts (and just being a little lazy). On a daily basis, there are three products that I have learned to love so much, I don’t think I’d ever be able to live without them.

The first is ColorProof's TruCurl Curl Perfecting Creme. This curl creme is one that I easily apply to my hair when I first get out of the shower. This not only helps to keep my hair less frizzy but helps to enhance my natural curls to help control my hair as well as give each curl shape. Not only does this help do all of those things for my hair but the company is one I love since they are strictly cruelty free towards animals with all of their products!

The second product on my list of favorites is Goldwell’s Color Brilliance Serum Spray. This product is a great leave in conditioner that I apply all over my hair when its been towel dried or damp. It helps to regenerate the hair as well as protect any color that has been applied as well as keeping my hair looking shiny. I love how this makes my hair feel on a day to day basis when I use with my TruCurl crème and the pomegranate scent it has smells amazing.

The last and final product that I would never give up is for when I am having a lazy day and don’t have the time to wash my hair. ColorProof’s Fresh Start Soft Dry Shampoo helps to leave my hair feeling clean and smooth and removes excess oil or residue by them being absorbed with the rice starch. Not only does it do all of these things, but it is also used for heat protection for up to 450 degrees.

With these products alone, I am able to keep my hair feeling clean, frizz free and feeling smooth. For someone who wants a quick fix to frizz and dry hair, these products are also for you!
