Frizz happens when the hair’s cuticle layer raises, enabling moisture to penetrate and swell the strand resulting in dry, frizzy hair.  What you may not be aware of are the different types of frizz that occurs — here are a few of them:

Dry frizz is exactly what it says; it has a dry look and feel

End frizz typically appears at the ends of the hair

Halo frizz happens at the crown of the head.

Before summer hits, take note of a few tips to battle frizz and grow longer, thicker hair:

Add protein to your deep conditioning process. Because your hair is made of protein, it craves it.  Try a DIY protein mask to restore your hair’s protein source; this will also flatten your cuticle layer. With our ONE Rosemary and Avocado Conditioner, apply a quarter size amount (or more depending on length and texture) while your hair is wet. Use a wide tooth comb to distribute evenly throughout the hair and have the conditioner sit for 30 minutes. Rise with cool water to seal your cuticles, allowing moisture and nutrients to penetrate and close your roots.

Trim, trim, trim your hair.  It may seem counterproductive to trim your hair when growing it out, but untrimmed ends lead to damage and breakage.  Regular trimming prevents this from happening creating healthier, frizz-free hair.

Cover your hair at night. Preserve your strands by covering it with a silk or satin bonnet overnight.  This protection rules out unwanted damage or breakage to your tresses.

Your Healthy Hair Journey: Three Secrets Revealed

In today’s health conscious world, more and more people are embracing the world’s most natural treasures to keep a strong mind, body and soul.   And this goes for hair too; there’s so much chatter about managing a path to healthy hair tresses.  

Men and women are constantly exploring techniques, trends and products that keep their hair glorious, beautiful and vigorous.  Beyond key natural ingredients infused in our ONE collection, what goes unnoticed are the fundamental values of maintaining robust hair — patience, commitment and lifestyle changes.

So you ask — what are some steps I can take to maintain luxurious hair? Along with infusing the ONE collection into your weekly haircare regimen, here are three beauty secrets to take advantage of for long-lasting, healthy hair:

    • Be open-minded to a healthier diet.  You are what you eat — and most have no idea that it’s also reflected in your hair.  Hair is made of protein, and having enough protein within your diet is critical for making hair strong and healthy.  Choose eggs, almonds and other nuts as options to promote more protein in your body and hair.
    • Deep conditioning is a must. Applying a hair mask at least once a week not only encourages healthy hair strands, but also adds softness and shine. The best thing about it?  The ingredients are right in your fridge and pantry!  Mix an avocado, some honey, coconut oil, and a egg; apply on your hair for a couple of hours.  You’ll see instant results.
    • Avoid stress.  A little known fact — stress causes a chemical reaction in your body that negatively impacts your health.  These changes are also reflected in your hair, resulting in thinning or breakage.  Try exercising, aroma therapy or a massage to reduce your stress levels. And get tons of rest!

Maintaining healthy hair doesn’t have to be a phase — we’re on this journey together!  Try these tips and feel free to drop a line below to let us know how they work for you.
