Hairspray (plus test)

Pump and aerosol hairsprays
Many people still believe that aerosol hairspray destroy ozone and are more damaging to the environment than pump hairspray.But aerosol hairsprays no longer use CFCs and have the same VOC limits as pump hairspray.
There is a real concern about breathing in any hairspray.You should be cautious and minimize your exposure when using any hairspray.For example you can wear a face mask 😷. Make sure you use water-soluble hairspray.
.
You can test the solubility of your favorite hairspray very easily.
Spray any clean,dry,glass surface with hairspray. Wait at least 24 hours and try to remove it from the glass.If the hairspray can’t be easily removed with warm, soapy water there is a danger it will build up in your lungs.

Silk Pillowcases

Sleeping on silk pillowcases will help keep that bed head under control.
.

The natural properties of silk, including its smooth surface, can help reduce friction on your hair which often causes damage, like spilt ends.
.

They don't suck out all of the natural moisture that your hair has and preven static from building up in your hair.

Leave-in Conditioners



Leave-in conditioners can be in liquid sprays, lotions, and creams.
-For thick, coarse or curly hair use a creamy leave-in conditioner. 
-For fine hair use a lotion or spray leave-in.
Leave-in conditioners can be protein based, moisturize based or balanced depending on the ingredients it contains.
-When your hair feels too soft or weak you should use a protein leave in conditioner for strength. Also, use it after highlights and bleach.
 -When your hair feels rough or dry use a moisturizing conditioner. Also use it during the winter season, when your heater is on, but don’t forget to use a humidifier as well.
Almost all professional leave-in conditioners have pH between 4.5 and 5.5

pH of the hair



pH(potential hydrogen)
The pH scale is used from 0(acidic) to7(neutral) to14(alkaline).
Virgin Hair pH=3.67
Scalp pH=5.5
Water pH=7.0
Skin pH=5.5
Pediatric shampoos “no-tear” pH=7.0

Alkaline pH (any product applied on hair that has pH higher than 3.67) may increase the negative electrical charge of the hair fiber surface and increase friction between the fibers. This may lead to cuticle damage and fiber breakage. It is a reality and not a myth that lower pH of shampoos may cause less frizzing for generating less negative static electricity on the fiber surface.
This is one of the reasons why we use conditioners.  Conditioners have positively charged polymers (cations) that will quench those negative charges.  They deposit on the hair and at the same time they provide lubrication to the fibers among other things
After using a shampoo of pH higher than 5.5, conditioner of low-pH should be applied so that besides lubricating, the electrostatic forces can be neutralized, the frizz effect eliminated and cuticle scales may be sealed.

About Clarifying Shampoo



 Clarifying shampoo- aka purifying, detox and deep-cleansing shampoo.
Even your standard shampoo and conditioner can build up their own residue over time.
If you use styling products, dry shampoo, or spend time in chlorinated pools, then use clarifying shampoo once per two weeks. If you have dry coloured hair, limit it to once a month, since clarifying formulas can strip the colour.
Without a doubt, use it before you are going to the hair salon to colour your hair.

Definition of Balayage

Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint and also called as freehand painting technique.

It allows for a natural-looking effect, with subtle, less noticeable regrowth lines than with regular foil highlights. Balayage is applied on the surface and not saturated through the section until the very tips. It grows out beautifully and more naturally so you don’t get an obvious regrowth line and can wear it for longer between appointments. It’s low maintenance, more natural, and is a modern technique that’s much more flattering. Healthy hair is attractive hair and that’ll never go out of fashion. Balayage gives a gorgeous healthy finish that looks nature-enhanced, glossy and expensive. It can be natural or strong, whatever you want, it’s all about the application technique.

Questionable Hairstyles at Golden Globes 2017

And if you think that Sarah Jessica Parker paid tribute to Carrie Fisher, then read this article at people.com “I didn’t mean for that, perhaps it was in my subconscious,” Parker told NBC’s Natalie Morales. “There’s actually a photograph of my mother wearing her hair like this.”
I love braids, but it's a little too much!I'd prefer some hairpieces around her face and neck.


                                         I spy with my little eye, BOBBY PINS!
You shouldn't see any bobby pins !!!


Beads? 
Good idea for little girls and DIY projects, but not for the red carpet.             







Even if she plays Jackie, this hairstyle not for her!
Old fashion hairstyle can make you look like an alien!








Let me know what do you think about it in the comments below 😉
