Make Dead Hair Live

Dead hair is like a dead corpse to me, but there are steps you can do to make it better looking. Dead hair is best to cut it off and start all over again. Ofcourse some of us can't do that! Soooo...

Start by trimming it. Trim atleast 4 to 6 weeks atleast half inch. This removes the split ends and keeps the hair from splitting into two. That's why trims are very important.

Give it a special treatment. A very successful one is treating your hair with, It's a 10 products. Click for more product info

Don't wash your hair more than once every two days. By doing this you are dehydrating the hair.

Change to a shampoo for 'Damage Repair' or 'Protein Care'.

Condition your hair. It avoids tangles in your hair. Putting a leave-in conditioner on makes it better.

When your hair is wet, it's better to use a comb than a brush. Avoid using brushes as they damage your hair

There are many products you can do to your hair to make it look better. You can try hair serum. It eases frizz in your hair.

Make sure that when you're doing the oil treatment, you don't make it very hot as the oil would hurt and damage your scalp.

Avoid using a straightening or a curling iron very often.
Try it as your hair grows healthy your trimming the dead off!
thank you

Why are Antioxidants good for your SKIN?

Like I said many posts before, I am all about hair and skin care, from the INSIDE TO THE OUTSIDE.

What are Antioxidants?

Apparently fruit and vegetables are full of them, and they’re claimed to help prevent disease and delay aging (slower wrinkling lol). If you're like most people, you want smooth, healthy skin, but maybe you don't want to wade through hundreds of chemically laden products to get it. That's where antioxidants can help. Incorporating the right antioxidants into your diet and skin care routine can have a positive effect on your skin.

Antioxidants are nutrients (vitamins and minerals) and enzymes (proteins inside your body) that can help to prevent and repair damage to your body's tissue. Antioxidants do this by slowing or preventing the effect of free radicals, which start oxidation -- a process that causes damage from oxygen that can lead to cell dysfunction. If you've seen a peeled apple turn brown, you've seen oxidation in action. As antioxidants block the effects of free radicals, they end up being oxidized. This is why it's important to constantly replenish your supply of antioxidants.

When it comes to caring for your skin, antioxidants can help to protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun. Unlike sunscreens and moisturizers, antioxidants can protect your skin from the inside out by guarding your cells from damage. Vitamins A, C and E and the mineral selenium are thought to be particularly helpful in skin care. In addition to helping fortify cells against free radicals, vitamins A and C also encourage cell and tissue growth, helping the body to repair itself. This is very helpful to the skin, which is constantly shedding and regrowing cells. For this reason, any antioxidants that protect cells and encourage cell growth could be helpful in an anti-aging regimen, as they may help fight fine lines and wrinkles.

Ladies and gentlemens this post is for both sexes! If you take care your insides, outside will GLOW!

Fine, Tangled and RUDELY hair

Hi Readers. Today I was asked a beauty question and I wanted to share with my readers. Before I show you I just want to say I appreciate you reading my posts.
Question by Andrea Deierlein

‎**Hey... I was wondering if u could recommend a good shampoo, conditioner and leave in.. My hair is verrrrry thin and tangles within seconds! I just had a single process color done about a month ago and hair has been BEYOND unmanageable since! Couldn't get a comb thru hair yesterday in shower and had to go to salon just to have it washed and combed! Anything you could recommend?? Currently in my shower are Matrix Biolage shampoo & conditioner for dry hair, Graham Webb shampoo, and Paul Mitchell conditioner and none of them are doing any good!!! Thanks!!** I hope this helps you!!!!!!!

Things like chlorine, going to the beach, and windy car rides can result in frizzy, tangled, dry, and seemingly unmanageable hair. Trying to reverse the damage can lead to more, if you don't know the proper way to detangle and condition your hair.  Hair conditioners protect the hair, make it smooth and easier to manage. They also improve the texture, body and appearance of hair.  Preventing hair tangles from occurring initially is the best tangled hair solution, FOR SURE!

Some preventions:

•You can prevent hair tangles by being careful when you style your hair. Take your time and don't back comb or do any flipping your head over especially if you have long hair.

•Don't allow your hair to be free if you live in a windy climate. The wind will just blow your hair all over the place!

•Use a moisturizing conditioner and always comb the conditioner through. Let the conditioner sit for a while before rinsing in the shower.

•Use a detangling, leave-in conditioner before you begin to style your hair. Remember to apply it and comb it through in sections.

•Before going to bed, always detangle your hair and apply a light moisturizer. Remember to pin you hair up (or roll it or wrap it). Wear a satin scarf or sleep on a satin pillowcase.

•Keep your hair trimmed. Split ends and breakage can cause more tangles to occur as the rough cuticle catch on to each other. I am sure you have noticed that after you get a trim, your hair is so much easier to manage. This is one of the reasons for that. Make and appointment with me :)

•Finally, you can prevent hair tangles by wearing your hair up. Funny that wearing your hair up can be the solution for so many things. But wearing your hair up can prevent tangled from wind, sleeping, exercising, etc.

 Learning tangled hair solutions requires that you understand the causes of hair tangles in the first place.

Hair tangles are causes by not combing your hair regularly, washing with your hair piled on your head, letting the wind blow your hair all over, sleeping without hair protection and not using moisturizing, detangling hair products.

Fortunately, there are many things you can to do remove tangles should this happen to you occasionally or regularly.

Remove Tangles

If you want to remove tangles with the least amount of hair loss, you must have patience and the right tools.

•If your hair is tangly while wet, you should take a wide-tooth comb and detangle your hair under the shower head.

•For additional detangling, apply hair conditioner and detangle under the shower head. Detangling under the shower head is probably the most effective of all tangled hair solutions.

•If your hair is already dry and you endure some tangles from wind or sleeping, take some hair SERUM (click for another post of mine) and apply it to your hair. Then gently detangle with a wide-tooth comb section by section. Always remove tangles section by section.

•If you tangle your hair while combing or brushing, don't yank the comb or brush from your hair. Instead, carefully remove each individual hair strand by strand from the tool. Don't try to reverse the direction of the comb or brush. This typically just causes more tangles.

•If your hair is tangly due to using hair spray or other styling products, wet your hair first and detangle under the shower head. Detangling under the shower-head works for almost any type of hair tangles

Shower Steps


Put loads of moisturizing conditioner in your hair while in the shower, because wet hair takes less damage than dry. Rub the conditioner in.


Detangle the hair by using a wide-toothed comb. Gently comb through from ends to roots until all of the tangles are loose.




Condition just the ends of your hair once more.


Rinse hair with cool water for sleeker, shiner strands.


Comb and then brush hair. Comb first to prevent breakage.


Let air dry. Your hair has already suffered enough; blow-drying it will help dry out you hair. If you truly must blow-dry, keep the heat setting on cool.

Bonus Tips

If your hair is still tangled, try using a leave in conditioner after your shower.

Avoid tangled hair in the first place by securing long hair in a tight braid or bun.

Be patient.

Take care of your hair in general (wash frequently) and you will be much less prone to annoying frizz and tangles.

Final Conclusion

I hope you have found your ANSWER within these tangled hair solutions. If you've already tried some of them, give some of the others a try. What you think about this post? I love comments!


Do not get shampoo in your eyes. It doesn't do any damage but it hurts a lot!

Last but not least products I recommned is "It's a 10" a bit expensive but well worth it!!! 


Thank you
