Short Hair, Don’t Care!

Posted by Kitch under hair trends

Summer is here and as much as you love our long locks, having it is not just practical. It’s way too hot during the summer and you will only end up tying your hair up in a bun. That boring look just won’t do! To have a chic and stylish look, consider chopping your hair off! Celebrities like Michelle Williams, Charize Theron, Emma Watson and more are now sporting cute pixie cut; be brave enough and join the band wagon!

When you decide to chop your hair off, the first thing to do is to determine what kind of style will suit the shape of your face. Focus on your best features and get the hairstyle that will emphasize that.

Choose the right person to do the cut for you. This will be a huge change and you need someone that you genuinely trust to do this. Visit a salon and talk to a hair dresser about the style you want. Get into detail. If you can show photos, do so. Also ask for his/her advice as they know what will work well for your face.

Beach Hair

Posted by Kitch under Style

 

Going to the beach is always fun but it can easily be a pain for women because the mixture of sun and salt water doesn’t do the hair any good. For an easier-to-handle hair during a beach escapade, follow these simple steps.

  1. Before heading out, part your hair into four sections.  Brush each part towards the crown then wrap each around your finger and pin. Spray on hair spray that is specifically made to hold hair in place under the sun and wind.
  2. For a chic look, and for those who do not want to get their hair wet, wrap a pretty scarf around your head.
  3. After some fun under the sun, you can unpin each section of your hair. This can be done even after you get your hair wet from the beach or shower. When you let your hair down and shake it out, you will have perfect beach hair.

Thai women have really nice hairs and I’ve learn Thai just to ask them what is their secret. it turns out that it is Mayonnaise.

Cornstarch- You don’t really need to shampoo every day, even if your hair is only. The best alternative to this is to put cornstarch. Here’s how you can do it. Brush your scalp and hair roots with a cornstarch using a blushing brush. Leave it for 10 minutes and let it soak off all the extra and unwanted oil from your hair. Rinse well.

Aspirin- Got dandruff? Let go of them. Take 2 aspirins and dissolve them into your anti-dandruff shampoo before you wash your hair. And you’ll see the magic! This is really a great remedy.

Reward Your Hair

Posted by Kitch under hair care

Your hair is your crowning glory. It is just appropriate to take care of it and treat it right. A person can wear designer clothes, have the best shoes and accessories but it still won’t matter if the hair is looking all dry. So take down notes because this article will teach you just the best way to reward your hair. First is to always keep it clean. The hair get a lot of dirt and dust and so you must make sure you wash it the right way. Before shampooing, make sure hair is thoroughly wet. This will avoid any type of breakage. After shampooing, use a conditioner. Do not do this daily because over use of chemicals will dry the hair. If your hair gets buildup from conditioners, mix 1 tablespoon baking soda with your regular shampoo once a week. Rinse and dry as usual. Avoid using a brush on wet hair. Comb out the snarls.

If you ever find that your hair is already complaining from the dryness, repair by treating it with oil and egg yolk. Massage olive oil into hair. then massage a beaten egg yolk to hair too. Work from the ends all the way up. Leave it on for 10 minutes, then wash with shampoo. Do this once a week for a month and your hair will become healthier.

Lighten Hair The Natural Way

Posted by Kitch under How to

 

There will always come a time when you feel like you need a change in your look. For women, the hair is their first target. If it is not a drastic hair cut, it will be a different hair color. If you have dark hair, it is a bit difficult to change your hair color without having to bleach it. We all know that bleaching can easily damage the hair so if you do not want to make use of harsh chemicals from bleach, there are some natural solutions that you can do.

1. Lemon Juice – This will take time to work if you have dark hair so you must do it regularly but you will eventually see results. Fill a spray bottle half way with lemon juice and the other half with water. Spritz it to hair until it’s damp then let it dry outside under the sun.

2. Chamomile Tea- Do the same method as with lemon juice.

3. For darker hair, use henna powder and chamomile tea. Mix the two together until you make a thick paste. Apply the mixture to the hair and then cover hair with a plastic bag for thirty minutes. Rinse your hair and towel dry.
