Luna Miracle Hair Treatment

Hey dolls!

I was excited to see a blogger launch a hair product and when I seen Lisa Jordan, Just Jordan come out with the brand “Luna” and her second product being a big surprise, a leave in hair treatment, I knew I had to have it and try it out! I purchased mine in Grow unltd in Waterford.  First impressions where good, the packaging looks pretty its something you would want in your hair care products.

I have used it since I bought it and there was a once off that I didn’t use it and I noticed such a difference, by god this is a miracle!!. When I started using it I instantly knew I would love it! I had Beauty Work extensions in my hair 6 months and it gave them a boost each time and gave them an amazing shine also. I found the product helped me detangle the extensions and smoothen them out. Also not to mention the smell it gives, its devine, which is very important with a hair product! When I use a product on a client the smell is what gives the first reaction “oooh whats that!” so having a nice smell for me is a key point. I now have my extensions out and have been still using this in my hair each time!

Bad Hair Day? not any more!

We have all experienced those days when our hair just does not cooperate the way we would like it to be,  don’t deny it! Whether it’s bed hair, second day hair, or a simply just a bad hair day – here are 6 simply easy and quick tips on how to fix it! Dont worry you will not need to do a Britney moment and shave your head!

1. Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo absorbs excess oils and adds a volumizing texture to your hair. If you don’t have dry shampoo handy, try this simple trick: take a small amount, about a teaspoon size of baby powder and gently massage it into your scalp at the roots. This will also absorb excess oils and make your hair appear fresher but this method mainly works on lighter hair as dark hair will have a grey look on your hair.

Tip: use little by little of the dry shampoo, make sure not to use too much, or otherwise it will be noticeable.

2. Braids, braids, braids

I just love braids anyway but not only will they cover up that second day hair, they also look so much better on second or third day hair. For some ideas on what kinds of braids you can try out:

 

 

3. Tease your roots

For flat hair, backcombing the roots will instantly lift the hair and give it a lively, fuller look.

4. Embrace the frizz

Your hair doesn’t need to be perfectly smooth at all times. Why not go with your frizz rather than against it by lightly braiding or putting your hair in a boho hairstyle , and just be confident with it?

5. Wash half your hair

This one may sound a little strange, I know, but for a lot of us the process of washing and drying the hair can take a long time and is just complete effort. When you’re in a rush, take the front part of your hair and wash that section only (maybe even in the sink). If you have a fringe, just go ahead and wash the fringe. This will give an illusion that you have freshly washed hair and take the attention away from what you’re trying to hide!!

6. Rock that cute hat or headband

This one is a major one!! If you have tried all of the above and your hair is still annoying you or your just too lazy to even try attempt to fix it, than throw on a hat to disguise it all! Try rocking a cute hat with a side braid, or tease your hair at the crown and put on a thick headband. Ta-da what bad hair day?

It’s only a bad hair day if we allow it to be one. You are beautiful no matter what, stay confident and smile lots. If you do not attract attention to your not so perfect hair on those bad hair days, I am telling you, nobody will even notice a thing about it!! 🙂

Festival Hair Ideas!

My most loved time of the year is Festival Season. With Coachella over but more music festivals to happen during the summer this is the perfect time to try these looks out. What I love about festival looks is you can be unique and go crazy!!

My favourite looks would have to be ; Space buns, coloured hair, double dutch braids, glitter roots and middle parting braids. With festival looks don’t forget to accessories! This year there is way more accessories that just a flower crown, even though I do love that! Try adding hair charms to your braids, weave some coloured wool through your hair, head scarf or even fresh flowers.

Tips for Oily Hair!

Struggle with oily hair? I totally get it.

There’s nothing more annoying than taking a nice cleansing and refreshing shower, and waking up the following day and wondering why your hair is oily enough to fry an egg. Looking for some quick and easy tips on how to help oily hair? Keep reading…

 

1. Hair Wash Cycle

For someone who has naturally oily hair, it’s actually best to not wash your hair as often as you may think. Most people tend to go straight for the shampoo and assume they’re simply due for another shower when they feel their hair is oily. Washing your hair every day or even every other day, however, will result in your hair producing more oil because it’s trying to compensate for the oil lost. Basically, your sebaceous glands are confused.

It will take time to train your hair to get used to your new wash cycle, but with time, you will start to see results. We recommend to try and reduce your hair wash cycle to only 2 or 3 (at the very most) washes per week. I would wash it twice a week. When washing your hair, start off with warm water when washing so that it opens up your pores and cleanses, and when it comes time to rinse opt for cooler water so that your pores close.

Another great tip: minimize the use of conditioner. If you’re one to slather on the conditioner, try cutting it back to just a small amount or even skip it a few times each shower session to minimize oil build up, as it can activate oil production quicker. The proper way to use conditioner is putting it all throughout the length of the hair, because that is where the hair needs to be conditioned the most. The natural oils will take care of moisturizing the roots.

I know it can be tough leaving the house when your hair feels and looks oily, but here is a few hairstyles you can do.

 

2. Straight Hair vs Curly Hair

Have you ever noticed that you can usually go a day or two longer without washing your hair if you’ve curled it? If your hair lays flat and you’re guilty for straightening it often, try to lay low on the straightening products as the closer your hair is to your head and the straighter it is, the more oil it comes in contact with, and the easier it is for the oil to make its way down your hair.

3. Keep Your Hands Away From Your Hair

The twirling of hair or the brushing of your hair back that you subconsciously do throughout the day all contribute to the oil build-up you see in your hair. If you struggle keeping your hands away from your hair throughout the day, try tying it up in a bun at the beginning of the day so there are no temptations.

4. Dry Shampoo!!

Dry shampoo is a loved product by me. There are so many benefits to it, but the most obvious one is that it soaks up the oil in your hair and helps give the illusion of freshly washed hair, without the inconvenience and time it takes to actually wash your hair.

Other cool benefits of dry shampoo are, it acts as a texturizing spray and help provide extra volume at the roots, if you’re trying to create a more voluminous hair style. Be sure to only use a small amount as you can always add more, and don’t forget to massage it in well!

5. Reduce the Use of Hair Products

We understand that sometimes you may have to use a little bit of hairspray or mousse to perfect that curl or hairstyle, but many hair styling products like gels, mousses, and creams contain oils and other ingredients that can contribute to the buildup of hair oil. I would recommend to use a little amount of these products as you can.

Healthy Summer Hair

Summer is nearly over but that doesn’t mean people are finished going on holidays! Or that Ireland might just get another few nice days in the month of August (Fingers Crossed). What can be better than warm sunny days, floral dresses and icy cold drinks?

That sounds amazing but summer brings a few challenges to our hair, Summer is hard on our hair! Summer heat can damage our hair, gives us oily scalps, make our hair lighter. But, fear not! I am here to your rescue and will share my amazing and simple summer hair tips! The heat and humitidy here has been hard so I thought now was the right time:

  • No Heat! First way of protecting your hair is avoid styling your hair with heat as much as possible. I know this could be a challenge for some people but there is a lot of heatless hairstyles ideas that can be done. If you find your hair will go frizzy than a serum is what your need.

 

 

  • Condition Condition Condition!! We see it to often, coloured hair that gets ruined and damaged from all the salt water and sun exposure.If you are going to be spending a long day in the sun than I would advise you to apply a conditioner  all over your hair when dry and leave it soak in. When you are home apply a treatment to your hair, a treatment can help revitalize and rehydrate your hair, bringing it back to life.

 

  • Cover it up! If your planning on being out in the sun for a good length of time consider wearing a hat or scarf to protect your hair and scalp. This also helps to keep coloured hair from fading and turning brassy.

       

 

 

  •  Chlorine Damage! If you spend a lot of time in the pool and find your hair goes green (yes that can happen!) than you need a clarifying shampoo to help remove the chlorine build up and stops it from going green. If your hair is dry it is like a sponge and would be 1 of the first to experience this!

  • Drink more water! We will never hear enough of this! This also does wonders to your hair aswell as body & mind. Water also hydrates your hair and scalp – Otherwise hydrate your hair inside out!

 

Let me know if you have used any of these tips or if you have any of your own!

Wishing you a very lovely summer and healthy beautiful hair!
