Relaxing Hair

Posted on October 4, 2019 at 11:05 AM Comments comments (1)
Relaxing Hair
By definition, a hair relaxer is a lotion or cream that makes the hair easier to straighten and manage. It reduces the curl by breaking down the hair strand and chemically altering the texture. Most women who decide to get their hair relaxed have curly hair and who want it to be stick straight without any frizz. The results vary depending on your hair type, but usually a hair relaxer will leave your hair straight for about six to eight weeks. Unlike other permanent straightening methods, relaxing your hair will require touch-ups from time to time. You can go to a professional stylist.
While getting your hair relaxed by a professional is expensive, it is the best option if you decide to relax at all. Professional stylists know how to care for your hair and can properly add all the nutrients that have been stripped during the chemical process. A professional can perform a “strand test,” which will test the strength of your hair in order to further assess which type of relaxer is best for you. Stylist-approved hair products that can help specially treat your hair. Apart from their years of experience, some professionals actually keep records of what treatments you have had or what procedures other clients had that will help them determine how strong the relaxer should be for your hair type.
What are the different types of hair relaxers?
Hair relaxers, most commonly, are available in two types: Lye relaxers and No-Lye relaxers. Opinions on the two vary, but as with everything, it depends on your hair type and texture. Lye relaxers are known to work quickly on the hair, but as a result they might also rinse out of your hair easily. Their main ingredient is sodium hydroxide, and they are also known as “alkali” relaxers. No-lye, on the other hand, is mostly made of calcium hydroxide, which can dry out the hair. However, no-lye is better for people with sensitive scalps. When using no-lye, it is imperative that you use a “de-calcifying” shampoo to prevent calcium build-up.
What are some disadvantages of using hair relaxers?
Hair relaxers are very powerful chemicals; they have to be if you want your hair's texture altered so drastically. Depending on your hair type, hair relaxers might cause breakage, hair thinning, and stunt your hair growth the process may also result in chemical burns on the scalp and other areas -- with some women have also complained of scalp irritation, scalp damage or hair loss. Remember that hair relaxers are stripping your hair of its natural oils, so be very attentive to your hair if you decide to relax it.
Advantage of using hair relaxers?
Advantages of getting your hair relaxed. Your hair stays straight for the most part and it’s easier to manage and style and less likely to frizz.  
Should I get a relaxer?
There’s no right or wrong answer to this question -- clients should be clear why exactly they want a relaxer. Having straight, relaxed hair is no “easy” task -- relaxed hair needs special attention by keeping the hair moisturised, along with weekly deep conditioning, drinking plenty of water, and utilising leave-in conditioners. Be sure to use a reconstructing shampoo and conditioner the week following your hair relaxing, and stay away from heat that will further dry your hair.
Relaxer Prep
If you are using a relaxer make sure you deep condition your hair one week before your service. Also, use very little heat after the relaxer application- because a lot of heat will dry the hair our even more and make it brittle. In between touch up I would recommend deep conditioning the hair at least once or twice before your next service.

African American and Black Hair Types

Posted on August 14, 2018 at 5:03 AM Comments comments (4)
African American and Black Hair Types
Trying to figure out which of the black hair types you have?
Learning more about your unique hair type helps guide you to the products, tools and techniques that work best for your hair.
Before you do anything to your hair you should know exactly what you're working with so you can make the best choices for styling and treatment.
What are the different black hair types?
Most African American and black hair types fall under type 3 and 4 with a minority being type 2. Here is a chart that lists the different hair types used in Andre's hair book along with the descriptions of each.
African American and Black Hair Types Chart
Here's my take on hair typing chart.

Type 1 (Straight)
This hair is bone straight and not typical of black people or those with mixed African ancestry. The only way to achieve this look is by having a relaxer, pressing your hair straight or wearing a weave with straight hair.

Type 2 (Wavy)
This type has soft, deep waves with little to no curl. The hair tends to be coarse, stays close to the scalp in long 'S' shaped curves and doesn't usually have a lot of body.

Type 3 (Curly)
This texture is unique in that it's fine and soft with a 'Q' shaped pattern. This hair doesn't tend to have a lot of sheen but has tons of body. It tends to look straight when wet but curls as it dries.

Type 4 (Coily|Kinky)
This group is the most highly textured of all the black hair types. It's very tightly curled and tends to be wiry. Some 4's have a looser coil with spiral shaped strands while others have a tighter kink with a zig zag letter 'Z' formation. The curl pattern makes this the driest and most fragile of all the hair types.
Black Hair Typing with the MiZani Curl Key

So, What's Your Type?
Have you looked at the characteristics of the black hair types and figured out which one you have? Hair typing is about natural black hair types,
The shape of your hair follicles is what determines how much or how little curl your hair has. The rounder the follicle, the straighter hair grows; while the flatter the follicle, the curlier hair grows.
A single head can have several different textures in it. Always use tips and products designed for the dominant texture you have.
Hair Care Tips by Type
I've learned a lot about caring for black hair types and what stands out to me the most is the fact that all of them don't thrive on the same things. A product that works well for one hair type might be the downfall of another.
After years of reading what black women have said about what does and doesn't work for them, here's a summary of top tips I've seen for each category and how you can use them to care for each of the black hair types.
Type 2 - Wavy Hair

On the surface Type 2 hair seems easy to handle and care for but it comes with its own set of issues.
Clients of mine have this texture and there biggest complaint is puffy, frizzy and flyaway hair. Other issues too like the dull look and coarse feeling the hair gets sometimes.
The remedy I found that really works is to hydrate each strand properly and manipulate the hair as little as possible. If you have wavy hair these tips should work for you too.
Styling Tips for Wavy Hair
• Use moisturizing shampoos, deep condition and use a leave-in to infuse moisture regularly.
• Invest in a good boar bristle brush to keep your waves smooth.
• Use a light moisturizing hair gel or serum to add definition to your waves.
• After washing don't comb or brush your hair as it dry's to keep frizzing down.
• Gently scrunch your hair with product as it dries to encourage wave formation.
• If you need to dry your hair quickly use a blow dryer on a low setting with a diffuser attachment.
• Get trims regularly because split and damaged ends prevent wave patterns from forming properly.
Type 3 - Curly Hair

A healthy head full of big soft curls just screams fun to me, but based on what I've observed first hand it can be a real challenge.
Most of my clients has this hair type and is always upset about dryness, breakage and problems with humidity puffing their hair out after spending an hour straightening it.
In my opinion, committing the number one sin for Type 3's which is constantly fighting the natural curl pattern. Wearing it sleek and smooth, straightens it regularly and staying away from water to keep it from reverting. The combination of heat and infrequent washes and deep conditioning is a big no-no for curly heads.
Curly hair has a tendency to grow 'up and out', and if you're not careful will turn into a huge poufy afro. Nothing's wrong with that unless it's not exactly the look you're going for.
Products for Curly Hair Control
The key to taming your curls is going heavy on the moisture.
Hair puddings, custards, butters, crèmes and gels work wonders for this hair type (and sound delicious if you ask me).
These products not only hydrate the hair making it smooth, shiny and soft, but it also help to weigh it down so that it hangs and stretches instead of puffing up.
Styling Curly Black Hair
If you're a lady with curls use these tips will revive those soft pretty ringlets.
• Only use wide tooth combs, in fact the wider the better.
• Use a moisturizing shampoo, deep conditioner and heavy leave-in every time you wash your hair.
• Use conditioner only washes regularly to keep your hair properly hydrated without stripping it.
• Always apply styling product to soaking wet hair for defined curls.
• Never use a towel to dry your hair. For the best curls allow your hair to 'drip dry' or blow dry on a low setting with a diffuser attachment instead.
• To reduce frizz don't brush your hair and be sure to moisturize daily.
• Get your hair cut by a curly hair specialist. The right shaping technique brings this texture to life and makes the curls really pop.
Type 4 - Coily and Kinky Hair

Even with the variation in this group there are certain shared features as well as tools, products and styling tips all of them can benefit from.
Type 4 textures tend to be dull with very low sheen and can amazingly shrink up to 80% of its true length. It's notoriously known for being the driest and most delicate of all hair types.
A common myth is that this hair type can't grow very long. Well, I'm here to tell you that it not only is it possible, it's actually not hard to do.
How do I know? I'm a 4 and I've grown my hair to mid-back before.
Hair Products for Type 4's
This texture tends to be on the dry side, so focus on infusing and retaining moisture.
Moisturizing shampoos, deep conditioners and leave-ins aren't only good but essential for this type. Any product that hydrates and seals the hair is a must have. Hair butters, natural oils and moisturizing hair gels are popular for maintenance and styling.
Hair Tools and Styling Techniques
This hair is easily damaged by rough handling, heat and chemical applications. It might look like it can stand up to anything but one wrong move can set you back months or even years from damage.
A few invaluable tools for caring for this hair type are seamless combs, a soft boar brushes and a satin bonnets and pillowcases.
When it comes to styling this hair type less is always more.
• Always use a wide tooth comb, your fingers or a hair pick to detangle.
• Always detangle from ends to roots, preferably with wet hair coated with conditioner.
• Wash and deep condition once every week or two and bathe your hair and ends in hydrating moisturizers daily.
• Handle your hair gently and always put aside enough time so you don't have to rush.
• Keep the use of heat styling tools down to a bare minimum.
• Wear protective styles where you don't have to comb or manipulate your hair for a week or more at a time.
An Important Fact about Black Hair Types
A question I see a lot is "Can I change my hair type?"
If you've been wondering the same thing the answer is no. Hair type is a genetic trait and your DNA is something that can't be changed.
That's the reason why when you get a relaxer you have to get touch ups every so often. You can change and alter the hair that's already grown out as much as you want but it always grows back the way your DNA programs it to.
Your Hair Type is: Type 4 - Coily and Kinky Hair
Here is a list of tools and hair care products I recommend you get to begin the care of your hair.
Wide toothed & fine toothed comb
Wide toothed combs are usually used to detangle hair; they are also a handy tool for those who have medium to thick hair. If your hair is on the thinner side then a fine toothed comb is your best ally.
Rat tail comb
The rat tail comb is used to part or style hair neatly. You must have seen your hairdresser use it deftly when you go for haircuts. The hair brush gives a smooth gleam to the hair, it is also used to add volume and detangle, and comes in a variety of options.
What is the best hair brush to smooth the edges of curly, kinky hair?
The best type of brush to smooth curlier edges (hairline) is a boar bristle brush, “The bristles are soft enough to where it won’t damage the hair, but dense enough to smooth short hair,” she explains. 
I recommend applying a small amount of a styling cream to your edges and then use a bristled brush to smooth.

Create your perfect style with the Wahl Power pik hair dryer. It is ideal for drying Afro Caribbean hair types as the pik attachment allows the hot air to be distributed throughout your hair. With 3 heat and speed settings and a cold shot button, this dryer has all the settings you could need for amazing results and healthy looking hair.

Post Pregnancy Hair Care

Posted on September 2, 2015 at 8:19 AM Comments comments (14)
The aftermath of pregnancy can result in shedding and lacklustre hair, but with a few tweaks to your regime, new mums can return to flourishing nourished tresses.
The increase of female hormone, oestrogen, has a very good effect on hair growth this leads to a longer growing phase, which results in less hair loss. 
The average woman will shed around 100 hairs a day, mums-to-be will hang onto the majority of their strands, making their hair look thicker, healthier and longer for the nine month. But unfortunately, the fall out will come. 'After childbirth comes the drop in hormone level - usually starting three days after birth. This stimulates the body to start shedding all the hair it has been keeping hold of while you were pregnant.

Post pregnancy hair loss, this can mean temporarily losing between 10-30% of your hair. But if your are shedding with a vengeance you are not alone a staggering 40-50% of new mums will suffer from noticeable degree of 
post-partum hair loss.

Try not to stress
Keeping calm is not easy when your hairline is creeping further and further back. Things will get better as long as there are no underlying medical problems such as low iron, low vitamin D or hormonal imbalance, your hair will return to its normal shedding phase within around three months. New hair will be growing under old hair and while this may take a few months to appear, it will need help in the meantime try using a volumising product to thicken the hair fibers it is great for temporarily bulking up thinning hair try Brocato - Swell Volumizing Leave-In Conditioner.

Mistreating Your Hair

Posted on June 28, 2014 at 11:29 AM Comments comments (8)
Mistreating your hair is not saving money. I'm all for saving money, however, I'm at a lost when new clients arrive at my salon after abusing their hair at home and think they are saving themselves money. 
For example home weaves.  
If you can weave your own hair and it looks amazing, then I say," you go girl with your bad self".
Don't leave a weave no matter what application method you have used, in for more than six weeks without washing and treating your hair underneath. When removing bonding,  please DON'T rip the bonded wefts out, using the correct removal solutions and shampoos is a must. The worst crime is just gluing new hair on top of old glue,this leads to a huge build-up of glue grime and bacteria.

The hair and scalp can become badly damaged as a result of unskilled maintenance, poor hygiene and improper practices. Ripping  glued wefts out could lead to permeate hair lost and scalp damage. Always seek professional advice. 
We at Elementz Hair Care will be happy advise you in a brief phone call, or info from our blogs.   
Last but not least if your hair is dry, don't weigh it down with oil. Nourish the hair and scalp with a cleansing shampoo, followed by an intensive moisturising conditioner and always use a leave-in conditioner and a hair dress.

I highly recommend the following: 

OSMO Intensive Deep Repair Mask Conditioner .
Wella Enrich Moisturising Conditioner, available at 
Hairways in Basildon or Southend Essex. 

Organic roots intensive moisture
Creme of Nature Leave -in conditioner, from most high street hair suppliers.

Advice is free, give us a call for an appointment.

Keeping your hair healthy when wearing a weave

Posted on September 3, 2013 at 3:49 PM Comments comments (2)
To minimize damage to your hair when wearing a weave choose a high quality human hair. Shampoo and condition your hair regularly ensuring the base and hair extensions are dried thoroughly, oil the scalp if needed. It is always advisable to have a professional sew in your weave making sure it is not sewn in to tightly to avoid causing damage to the hair and or scalp.

Weaves

Weaves may have pros and cons.
 
Lets talk about sew-in weaves.
There are several types of sew-in weaves it is important to have it done by a professional, who should advise you of the right weave for you. 
Your lifestyle and your ability and willingness to maintain a proper upkeep is key.
A sew-in can last 6-8 weeks. 
It is important to ensure that the weave is not sew-in too tight, as this could lead to hair loss due to excessive tension. 
Bonding weaves are more of a temporary situation and last 1-2 weeks sometimes longer.
Micro Ring weaves can be applied to any hair type and length. This type of weave is one of the easiest to maintain.  
There are many other techniques for weaving. An experience professional will always advise you of the best type of weave for you.

Tips on how to wrap your hair when preparing to dry it or for bedtime

Posted on February 6, 2012 at 12:47 PM Comments comments (2)
Tips on how to wrap your hair when preparing to dry it or for bedtime

It is always recommended that Afro hair be wrapped at night to protect it from moisture lost therefore reducing the risk of breakage and making it ease to manage and style everyday. Wrapping your hair will reduce the use of straighteners, whether its your hair or a weave. 

Step 1:Wash and condition your hair. Apply a leave-in conditioner, wrap foam or setting lotion appropriate for ethnic hair.
 
Step 2:Comb your hair with a wide tooth comb to get tangles and kinks out and always comb from ends to root. 
Make a small horizontal part at the top of your head (the crown area) and comb the hair forwards to your face and then downwards  over your ears and back towards your neck.
 
Step 3:Determine which side you want to wear your parting. 
create your part and Start wrapping the hair,by combing your hair towards the left if your parting is on the right and visa versa.
Take the hair up over and behind the left ear continue in a circular motion until you are back to the parted area on your right,continue over the part and blend the hair into the rest of the hair where you started your wrap. your hair should now be completely wrapped on your head. if your hair is long uses clips as you work around the head to avoid it falling out of place. With a bristle brush, go around the wrapped hair smoothing the ends down.  pressing the hair down to keep it in place. tie the hair with a net.

Step 4:Sit under a hooded  dryer for at least 45 minutes or until the hair is completely dry. 

Step 5:comb your hair in the same circular direction as you did in Step 3.  gently teasing until the hair strands are separated. 

Step 6:Part your hair and comb onto the elected side of your face.

Step 7:Practice, practice, practice. It takes time to train your hair and to learn how to wrap it. The more you practice, the easier it will be to wrap your hair.

Step 8: To dry wrap your hair follow the instructions as in Part 3 but
tie your hair with a silk scarf for bed time.

Tips & Warnings
Curl the ends of your hair with curling iron or flat iron to add a little bump. 
Spray a light mist of oil sheen to give your hair a bit more luster. 
Re-wrap your hair at the end of each day. Tie it up with a scarf and unwrap it the next day and it will always look as thought you have just walked out of the salon.
