Revolutionary New Anti Aging Hair Tips

By Kelly Wilson

​Best Anti Aging Hair Tips | Jen Atkin

anti aging hair care

It’s no secret that as we age, our hair changes in color and texture (hello, frizzy grays!). And while we’re constantly bombarded with ways to prevent our skin from aging (Moisturizer! Diet! Sunscreen!), we’re left wondering: Is there anything we can do to stop our hair from aging? To answer all our anti-aging hair care questions, we caught up with the stylist behind the most famous and luscious heads of hair, celebrity hair guru Jen Atkin.

There’s no better expert to chat hair with than Jen. Not only does she travel the world primping and priming the tresses of Jessica Alba and Chrissy Teigen, she also has her own successful hair care range called OUAI (pronounced way) sold through Sephora. That is, if you can get your hands on it; it sells out as soon as it’s restocked. From tips for achieving youthful-looking hair to why your shampoo and conditioner shouldn’t always match, read on as we pick the brain of the best hairstylist in the business.

How does our hair change as we age?

Your hair can lose elasticity so it breaks easier, which is caused by a dip in keratin levels. Hair can also
start to grow in slower, the texture can change, and tresses can become drier as well. All are normal factors
of aging, so I wouldn’t get too worried since there’s anti aging supplemental changes, with anti aging hair care you
can make to slow or prevent these things from happening.

How can we stop our hair from aging?

I really strongly believe that you will not see changes in your hair by just doing external remedies — you
need to do internal as well. For years, I was sending clients to the health food store to get biotin and fish
oil pills!

Haircuts and styles that make us look more youthful?

youthful hair styles

Haircuts and hair styles can make all the difference
in your appearance. Make sure to consult with your
stylist on what looks best on you given your lifestyle,
age, etc. You want to wear something that complements
you; and never want your hair wearing you.​

I always say it all depends on you; every cut is
different for everyone. I’m loving a short, chic bob
or even a lob [long bob], which looks flattering on
just about anyone, and is easy to manage.

​Biggest Mistakes​ Women ​Make Anti Aging ​Hair ​Care and ​Styling?

Most people buy their shampoo and conditioner from the same product line (volume, repair, clean, etc.) and do
not realize that you usually need a different shampoo and conditioner variety for each. Fixing this common
mistake can be the key to achieving your anti aging hair goals and care.

Aside from the right shampoo and conditioner, what 3 hair products should every woman own?

Use OUAI Treatment Masque at least once a week for deep restoration. If you’re crunched for time, apply to your
strands pre-workout and braid in to let the nourishing ingredients absorb into the hair with the added heat from
your workout exercise.

Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt is a game changer. I love using this a couple times a week
for a nice deep cleaning. It exfoliates the scalp and leaves you feeling refreshed.

The Dyson Supersonic Blow dryer is super lightweight, quiet, and chic, with a powerful engine. This is the ultimate
luxe blow-dryer. It’s so small and easy to travel with, and dries the hair so much faster than any traditional brand
blow-dryer.

Rainbow Roots Hair style

Hidden Rainbow Roots is Spring’s Coolest New Hair Trend

By KellyWil

Posted From http://stylecaster.com/beauty/hidden-rainbow-roots/

Alright, so we realize that almost every single week, we come to you with a brand-new hair trend that we swear will take over your Instagram in a matter of hours. But we’re not lying! The internet is just a very, very, fast-moving place, where trends burst forth brightly and then die just as quickly. Which is why we need to introduce you to hidden rainbow roots, the latest—and brightest—hair trend that’s quickly becoming our new favorite dye trend. At least, you know, for the next few days.

Rainbow roots is the brainchild of Blondies of Melbourne, an Australian-based salon that specializes in multi-colored hair. And though you can scroll through the feed and see zillions of bright-hued dyes, one in particular has stood out—mainly for its subdued, slightly hidden finish. We present to you hidden rainbow roots, the effect of bleaching just the first inch of your roots and then dyeing them a mix of colors. The result is basically the funfetti cake of hairstyles—chill on the outside, party on the inside.

If you want to get this look at home, uh, don’t. Go to a salon, find a trusted colorist, and make sure you understand that the grow-out phase of this style will be weird af, but just embrace it and go with it. Scroll down to see the final pictures, and make a salon appointment a.s.a.p., before this trend implodes and dies.

By KellyWil

 

Posted From http://stylecaster.com/beauty/easy-pretty-hairstyles/

Hey, we all have the best of intentions in the morning. You tell yourself you’re going to get your ass out of bed, take a shower, blow-dry your hair, try that cool, funky braid you saw on your co-worker, and finally look like a put-together human being. Then reality hits, and sleep calls you back to bed, and your hair gets thrown into the same topknot or ponytail it’s been existing in for the better part of the last year. We get it.

9 Nourishing Essential Oils for Hair Health & Strength

How to use essential oils for stronger healthier hair naturally

How to use essential oils for stronger healthier hair naturally

Maybe you ditched conventional haircare products years ago, or maybe you’re exploring more natural options. Whatever the case may be, essential oils for hair can be an integral part of everyone’s natural routine. Over the years I’ve found some favorite essential oils proven to strengthen and improve my hair, and they smell great too!

Best Essential Oils for Hair

I’ve always been careful to use essential oils safely and not ingest them unless suggested by a healthcare provider, but I love using them topically. Using them in my hair is one more way to get the benefits of essential oils safely.

A caution along these lines: Always dilute essential oils in the appropriate ratio in a carrier oil (or a beauty product containing oils) as essential oils do not dilute in water. The resources section in this episode of the Healthy Moms podcast gives several helpful charts as a guide.

Remember, it isn’t good to put straight essential oil directly on the hair or scalp, ever.

That being said, here are a few of my favorite essential oils for hair!

1. Ylang Ylang

This floral essential oil (I like this one) has aphrodisiac properties and a strong, distinct odor. It may be too overwhelming to use on its own, but it combines well with other essential oils for hair, like lavender and even lemon. People have been using ylang ylang to help grow their hair for a long time, as it was a popular hair growth remedy in Victorian England. This essential oil works by stimulating hair growth to treat thinning hair and also stimulates production of our scalp’s natural sebum to nourish dry, damaged hair.

Ylang ylang also offers aromatherapy benefits, as it works to relieve stress in the body. Since stress can sometimes cause hair loss, using ylang ylang is a great way to kill two birds with one stone. And for little ones who are frequently around other children, ylang ylang can also help to repel lice.

2. Tea Tree

Tea tree is one of the most popular essential oils for soothing damaged skin, but it’s also great for scalp health. Since this essential oil is antifungal, it’s been successfully used to treat dandruff. In this study, there was a 41% improvement in the severity of the dandruff as well as in the symptoms of itchiness and greasiness. Tea trea was also shown in this 2013 study to slow hair loss and increase hair growth and appearance, without the itching and inflammation that the control group had. And like ylang ylang, tea tree oil also treats head lice.

3. Lavender

Lavender is another favorite essential oil for skin that doubles for hair care. This study found that lavender increased the number of hair follicles for a thicker head of hair. The hair follicles in the lavender group were also deeper, meaning stronger roots for less hair falling out. Lavender essential oil also showed significant help in hair growth in this study that used a combination of several different essential oils, all with no significant side effects.

4. Cedarwood

Many guys like cedarwood essential oil because of its woody, more masculine scent. So if the man in your life objects to using more feminine-smelling oils like lavender and ylang ylang, then cedarwood may be a good option. It stimulates the hair follicles and increases circulation to the scalp to combat thinning hair. Cedarwood has also been helpful at improving dandruff symptoms.

5. Rosemary

Rosemary works well for dandruff due to its ability to minimize scalp itchiness and flakes. It helps to treat both dry, dull hair as well as overly oily hair and can help prevent split ends. In this study, rosemary essential oil was found to be just as effective against balding as the conventional treatment when it was used for at least six months. It helps to prevent premature baldness and stimulates the hair follicles.

6. Lemon

As a citrus oil, lemon helps simulate circulation in the scalp for increased hair growth. It’s also helpful to reduce overly greasy hair. Since there is some concern for phototoxicity here, don’t slather your head in lemon essential oil and then go sunbathing. Use lemon at night (or at least twelve hours before sun exposure), or don’t use more than a 2% concentration. However, if you’re using a few drops in your shampoo then washing it out of your hair, there’s no concern for phototoxicity. I like this organic one.

7. Juniper

Juniper berry has a fruity scent to it and blends well with both lemon and cedarwood essential oils. It’s helpful for overly oily hair and helps strengthen brittle strands. Juniper berry’s antiseptic properties help fight scalp conditions, and its astringent properties tone hair follicles to prevent hair loss.

8. Peppermint

You’re probably familiar with the fresh, invigorating scent of mint. This study showed a blend with 3% peppermint essential oil in a base of jojoba oil significantly increased hair growth thickness and length and deepened hair follicles for stronger hair. (Peppermint oil can safely promote hair growth, but this essential oil isn’t safe to use on young children.)

9. Lemongrass

Lemongrass has potent antiviral and antifungal properties that make it useful for a variety of scalp issues. In this study, several hair tonics were compared, and the one with a 10% dilution of lemongrass had the best results against inhibiting dandruff caused by yeast.

How to Apply Essential Oils for Hair

  • Add a few drops to your shampoo or conditioner and lather as usual.
  • In all of the studies, results were seen after consistent use for at least six months. Most of the treatments were used daily until results were achieved.
  • Add some essential oils diluted in aloe vera to a spray bottle and liberally mist your hair. You don’t need to rinse your hair after this. (However, be sure to avoid using citrus oils and then going out in the sun.)
  • Dilute essential oils in a carrier oil and use as a leave-in deep conditioning treatment. After an hour, or even overnight, the oil can be washed out of the hair. Coconut oil and sweet almond both work well for a leave-in conditioning treatment. (If you’ve heard castor oil helps hair growth, bear in mind that this thick oil is hard to wash out unless diluted with other carrier oils.)

How to Do Scalp Massage with Essential Oils

You can do a scalp massage with essential oils for hair diluted in a carrier oil to help reduce the symptoms of dandruff, psoriasis, or stimulate the scalp for hair growth.

  1. Part the hair and apply the oil treatment to the scalp in sections.
  2. Take your fingers and press them firmly onto the scalp, moving the skin across the skull. Do not however allow your fingers to move across the scalp.
  3. Allow the oil treatment to stay on for at least an hour before rinsing/washing out.

Do you use essential oils in your natural hair care routine? Is it something you can see yourself trying?
