Deep Dark and Black Hair Care Tips

19 Mar

Black HairThere’s nothing more luxurious than having sleek, shiny black hair. It’s a statement of beauty and glamour. A woman with black hair can very well wear it down and allow it to show its natural shine. There’s nothing more camera worthy than going down the red carpet with flowing black hair that waves with your every step. Black hair care is obviously one of the things these women do. They make sure that they take good care of their black hair for everyone to see.

Periodic Washing

Black hair care is done by washing it once every three days. This makes sure that the scalp is clean up to the hair tips. Even if you don’t do excessive styling, this is a number one hygiene rule that must be observed. Clean, beautiful black hair shines remarkably when the light hits it. This will also ensure that you can easily run your hand through it and prevent hair problems like dandruff or such.

There is not one single shampoo that is meant for all people who has black hair. One good black hair care tip that we can advise is to make sure that you are using the shampoo that is meant for your hair type. Whether your hair is dry, frizzy, straight, curly, or such, find the shampoo that is meant for your hair texture. Not because the label says that it’s meant for black hair means it is meant for your hair. In this way, not only are you keeping your hair clean and dandruff free, but you are also making sure that your hair is well treated with the shampoo you use. Be wary of the chemicals that they have on the shampoo. Make sure that they only contain mild ingredients.


Hand in hand with choosing the right shampoo for your hair, next in line is getting the right conditioner to moisturize your black hair. This is one of the hair care tips that one must not miss. Aside from washing and shampooing your hair, make sure that you condition it through and through to keep it healthy. Not only does it make your hair soft and shiny, but it also keeps the hair from getting brittle and dry. Shampooing is not enough. One must also use conditioners to make sure that the hair is well kept.


When caring for your black hair, always brush it with a soft brush that is compatible with your hair type. Slowly brush your hair to avoid breaking them and allowing natural hair oils to distribute itself from the roots to the tips. Multiple brushstrokes a day will keep it healthy and shiny. As you comb your hair, divide it into manageable portions so that you can easily work through possible knots.

When drying your hair after taking a bath, do not rub it harshly against the towel. This will increase the tangle in your hair, making it harder to comb and more vulnerable to breakage. Pat, it gently with the towel and let it dry naturally.

Be smart

Do not go out of the house when you’re hair is still wet. Not only will this cause your hair to get more ruined with the wind but it also makes it vulnerable to dust and pollution. Drying your hair gently before going out or using a gentle hair dryer should do the trick.

Enjoy, Stay Beautiful

Tips for Buying the Perfect Wig

19 Mar

WigWigs have many functional uses, namely when a women want to change her style for a special occasion or event, but also to cover and conceal thinning chair or a balding due to cancer or other serious condition. Before investing in a wig, here are some tips to keep in mind to help you find the perfect wig.

What to look for

Wigs have many different styles and price ranges. The pricier the wig is, the better quality. However, shop around and check online feedback and reviews of wig merchant. If you invest in a quality hair piece, you should expect years of good wear.

Why buy a Quality Hair Piece

When deciding to purchase a wig, you should understand how you plan to use it. Inexpensive wig hairpieces are also not finely wefted (wefting means the sewing of the hair to a net that you put on your hair). That means that more hair is sewn into one weft of the wig instead of distributed throughout the wig evenly resulting in a baby doll hair look if you’re not careful. If the wig is for a one or two-time special occasions during the year, you can get away with a lesser quality piece as it will not have a lot of wear and tear that will allow it to last longer. Keep in mind when you purchase inexpensive wigs, they will almost always be synthetic and may be harder to match your hair color if you buy a partial wig. Also, keep in mind as stated, inexpensive wigs just are not made as well so be prepared to be gentle handling them even with low use.

Synthetic Wigs

If you are looking to style a wig, synthetic is not very flexible. You can not color, or curl it with heat as it will melt. This means that your styling options with an inexpensive synthetic wig are limited.

Real Human Hair Wigs

If you want flexibility and a truly natural look, a wig made of human hair is the way to go. Natural hair wigs are versatile and durable particularly if you plan on wearing it often. Human hair wigs are more expensive, but they pay for themselves over time. They are flexible in that you can color, cut, curl and perm it just like your real hair. Additionally really human hair wigs look natural in sunlight, while synthetic wigs sometimes look unnatural in sunlight.

Natural hair wigs to vary widely in price and quality. They vary according to quality and length of the hair. Longer hair cost more and may be more expensive due to the better-made brands.

Look for wig hairpieces that are finely weaved and light. The wig should allow air to circulate through the wig and onto the scalp. This is for comfort and the well being of your hair underneath. It also provides an opportunity for your hair to breath while wearing the wig. Wigs should be comfortable and should feel natural.

Before buying a wig, investigate all of your options carefully. Choosing a good quality wig may save you money in the long run because you will probably never have to replace it.

How to Choose the Best Lip Gloss

18 Mar

Lip Gloss

Finding a lip gloss that most accurately fits the lip color and lip tone one must be patient and experiment with different colors and brands. These tips can improve your chances of finding the gloss that most accurately fits your lips.

Experiment with Different Brands

There are various brands of lip gloss, and also the costs of those brands vary widely. A $7 lip gloss bought at an area pharmacy isn’t essentially inferior in quality compared to an $18 Poole lip gloss compact. You may appreciate the feel, smoothness of the gloss or feel its heaviness, stickiness, or icky-ness. High-end lip glosses do supply a super-glossy feel that virtually glides on the lips; there are inexpensive lip glosses like NYX or Glossier Lip Gloss which have an enormous assortment. Do your research to find the best brand that fits your lip color and even has a neutral smell.

Lip gloss does not last very long

– Reapply periodically to preserve the dye
– Some brands, even the most effective ones, fade off after a few hours
– Be unique and decide on a lip color that compliments your lipstick and helps longevity

Tips for selecting

Choose a lip gloss based on your lip color since the color of your lips affects the color of the gloss applied to it. Never choose based on how it looks on other people. It may look good on them, but they may have thin, pale lips while another may have full thick lips. Lip gloss color show differently on different people. Your natural lip color will play an essential part of your lips. The pigmentation of the gloss is blended with your natural skin tone to arrive at how it looks, meaning continue to experiment with the best lipgloss color and brand until you have found the perfect match.

Just because it glitters isn’t always good

Make sure that the lip gloss feels comfortable. Lipgloss glitter that feels gritty or sharp should not be used. No matter what material used lip gloss should go on smooth. There is grittier lip gloss on the market and really should not be used as they are not healthy for great looking supple lips.

Be realistic; lip gloss gives lips a smooth shimmer; it does not provide anyone with kissable cottony-soft lips. Lip balms do that. Balms are not shiny. But it makes lips feel supple. Apply a balm over the lips first before putting on a lip gloss; this is to moisturize the lips. The lip gloss is supposed to be well, glossy.

How to have an amazing complexion

28 Feb

Good nutrition, combined with physical activity are important parts of leading a healthy lifestyle. Your diet can help you reach and maintain a facial radiance. These tips will help alleviate common complexion issues from acne to dark spots that arise from an unhealthy lifestyle.


Exercise Regularly

Get at least 150 minutes a week of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes a week of vigorous aerobic activity. You also can do a combination of moderate and vigorous activity. The guidelines suggest that you should workout every other day. Exercise accelerates blood flow and that is beneficial to your skin.

Drink Lots of Water

It helps flush our systems of waste products and toxins, yet many people go through life dehydrated—causing tiredness and dull skin. Water helps the skin be more radiant and of course, if you are dehydrated your skin and face, in particular, will show its effects. Aim for 8-10 glasses a day.

Eat Healthy Food

Eating a healthy, balanced diet provides nutrients necessary for the production of collagen that improves your face. Plus a healthy meatless diet delivers the best nutrients your skin could use. From eggs, avocados, green leafy vegetables, nuts and fresh fruit. And a reduction of sugar delivers the necessary nutrients your body needs for great skin.

Get some rest

Rest and refresh. Get plenty of sleep. Go to bed at a regular time each day and practice good habits to get better sleep. Sleep restores both your mind and body. Allow yourself some unfocused time each day to refresh, let your mind wander, go daydream. It’s okay to add ‘do nothing’ to your to-do list!
